Dr. Gounder Recommends Waiting On COVID Vaccine If You've Had A History Of Severe Allergic Reaction


    1. @Robert Godlewski yh I’m allergic to egg so no for me basically those who have allergies will have to wait until they give a variety of vaccines

    1. randylockard1 – Wrong. It has a 2-3% mortality rate, and it’s 5 times as deadly as the flu. The health care system is at capacity. By the way, is anything short of death acceptable? Yeah, no big deal to struggle to breathe for 6 weeks alone in a hospital bed and get a $30,000 bill.

    2. @J Groovy Really the entire USA health system is at full capacity and we need the government to control us?

    3. @randylockard1 99.3% survivable is still about 3 million dead Americans. So, let me know which one of your relatives you’d like to sacrifice.

  1. So when 1 out of a million have a reaction where will the trump virus apologists be talking about getting hit by lightning, dying in a car crash or whatever. COVID is the #1 cause of death in the US today. Thank God the first responders and eldery ‘on their last legs’ will be testing it for us before the person on the street can even ‘take the risk’

  2. Johnson $ Johnson vwccine will be very suitable for rural roll-out, as it is a single dose vaccine that will keep in a regular fridge or carry cooler (2-8°C) for 3 months, and 2 years in a regular freezer (-20°C).

    1. It is only about 60% effective, just like the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, when only one dose is given. The Moderna vaccine can be safely kept in a normal freezer, and can be left unrefrigerated for about a day.

    2. @Deborah Freedman The Moderna vaccine is an mRNA vaccine. The J & J is s viral vector vaccine. No toe-stepping intended, but I think you might have gotten some data from different candidates mixed up.

  3. As a Democrat and someone who is trying to save lives. I am going to take one for the team. The most selfless thing that I can prove to my philosophy is to take one for the team so everyone else can benefit from it.

  4. My last request of everyone would be to vote for WARNOCK and OSSOFF. Good luck everyone and see ya soon. I am going to get the vaccine.

    1. @hhiippiittyy And besides, if they’re all MAGA zombies, then they’ll just sit in a corner babbling “Hillary… Hillary… Hillary” all day until they waste away and perish.

    2. @Tessmage Tessera
      One of my favorite quips/responses about the “dead people voting for Biden” bs was… well durr, Zombies prefer brains.
      Or there was the visual of a zombie horde running through a MAGA rally and the only people they attack are the reporters.

  5. ‘People with a history of significant allergic reactions should not have the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid jab, regulators say.
    It came after two NHS workers had allergic reactions on Tuesday. The advice applies to those who have had reactions to medicines, food or vaccines, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said. The two people had a reaction shortly after having the new jab, had treatment and are both fine now. They are understood to have had an anaphylactoid reaction, which tends to involve a skin rash, breathlessness and sometimes a drop in blood pressure. This is not the same as anaphylaxis which can be fatal. Both NHS workers have a history of serious allergies and carry adrenaline pens around with them.’

    1. The question I want to know is, were they already immune to Covid, and that is why they went into shock?

  6. The only time I’ve had a bad reaction (anaphylactic shock) to a vaccine was when I was already very immune to the infectious agent. If one is already immune, there is no need for the vaccine. Is there a way to check people for antibodies against Covid-19 before vaccination?

  7. Watch theHighWire with Del Bigtree to hear from some of the top doctors, researchers, and scientists who are being silenced during this pandemic.

  8. When you sign a consent form to get a flu shot it asks specifically if you have had an allergic reaction.
