“A health worker in Alaska was hospitalized after suffering a serious allergic reaction to Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine, according to a report.
The person is believed to have suffered an anaphylactic reaction similar to two patients in the UK, three people familiar with the US case told the New York Times.
The worker became ill Tuesday, a day after the new coronavirus vaccine rolled out to all 50 states. They are now in stable condition.
It’s not immediately clear if the person has a history of allergies. Officials in the US are working to learn more about the case.
The shot, developed by Pfizer and German biotechnology company BioNTech, caused an anaphylactic reaction in two health workers in the UK last week.”
