This mRNA vaccine is clearly problematic- Be it Pfizer or Moderna. As if the situation in Norway was not worrisome enough
* California halts Moderna vaccine “A higher-than-usual number of possible allergic reactions were reported with a specific lot of Moderna vaccine."
"California health officials have pause the administering of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine after several people reportedly had allergic reactions at one clinic.
The officials on Sunday told health care providers across the state to stop using doses from one COVID-19 vaccine lot that arrived from pharmaceutical company.
The pause affects 330,000 doses of the vaccine that have been distributed to 287 providers, who were instructed to use doses from other available vaccine inventory until an investigation is complete.
"The state has not been notified of any other cluster or individual events related to this lot," officials said.
“A higher-than-usual number of possible allergic reactions were reported with a specific lot of Moderna vaccine administered at one community vaccination clinic,” California State Epidemiologist Dr. Erica Pan told KTLA-TV.
In a news release, state health officials said: "All appeared to be experiencing a possible severe allergic reaction during the standard observation period – a type of adverse event that the CDC reports some people have experienced when receiving a COVID-19 vaccine."
"Providers of the COVID-19 vaccine should continue their routine precautions to recognize and manage allergic reactions and potential adverse events," the statement also reads.
While the state did not reveal the exact location of where the reactions were reported, six people reported allergic reactions after receiving the vaccine at the vaccine super station at Petco Park on Jan. 14. The site was briefly closed following the reports but has since reopened, as other vaccine batches were available to be administered.
Between Jan. 5-12, Department of Public Health officials said over 330,000 doses from the specific Moderna lot were distributed to 287 providers across California.
The pause on the lot is in place until an investigated conducted by the CDC, FDA, Moderna, and state health officials is complete.
