If you haven’t received a COVID shot yet and are on the fence about it, read further. Many may want to think twice and do more diligent research as, once again, Moderna vaccines spark off an ‘unusually high’ amount of allergic reactions.
California’s Department of Public Health raised red flags when they hastily paused vaccinations using an allegedly tainted batch of Moderna COVID shots, citing abnormally high amounts of adverse reactions.
State epidemiologist Dr. Erica S. Pan sounded the alarm over Moderna Lot 041L20A, from which 330,000 doses of the vaccine have been distributed to 287 providers state-wide:
The reactions were almost all witnessed at one clinic, according to reports.
Reports suggest that at least six health care workers experienced allergic reactions, including numbness in the tongue and throat, and neck pain.
Dr Pan noted that “less data exists on adverse reactions related to the Moderna vaccine,” but still claimed it is rare for allergic reactions to occur.
“Out of an extreme abundance of caution and also recognizing the extremely limited supply of vaccine, we are recommending that providers use other available vaccine inventory and pause the administration of vaccines from Moderna Lot 041L20A,” Pan wrote in a statement.
