Following the emergence of various ‘glitches’ yesterday in the rollout of Pfizer/BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine, the giant pharma company has been forced to make a statement about the situation regarding a healthcare worker in Alaska who was hospitalized on Tuesday with a ‘serious allergic reaction’ after receiving Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.
As we detailed yesterday, a healthcare worker in Alaska has reportedly been hospitalized with a serious allergic reaction after taking Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine. However, what stood out, in this case, was the fact that the health worker had no reported history of drug allergies, unlike others who’ve suffered such reactions.
The reaction was reportedly similar to the anaphylactic shock suffered by multiple healthcare workers in the UK, where the Pfizer-BioNTech jab was approved earlier this month and RT reports that, in a statement, Pfizer said that it is “working with local health authorities” to assess the details of the report about a “potential serious allergic reaction,” pledging to “closely monitor all reports suggestive of serious allergic reactions following vaccination” and “update labeling language if needed.”
They also added that “there were no safety signals of concern identified in our clinical trials, including no signal of serious allergic reactions associated with the vaccine.”
As a reminder, UK health authorities have warned people with any history of “anaphylaxis to a vaccine, medicine, or food” away from getting the Covid-19 shot, and suggested that facilities set up to administer the vaccine be equipped with “resuscitation equipment” – guidance echoed in Pfizer’s own prescribing information.
In the US, providers have been advised against giving the vaccine to anyone with a “known history of a severe allergic reaction” to “any component of the vaccine.”
Elsewhere, additional glitches are occurring (over and above yesterday’s), some of the first doses of the Pfizer Inc.-BioNTech SE Covid-19 vaccine were held up from delivery in the U.S. this week and sent back to the company because they were colder than anticipated. Bloomberg reports that Gustave Perna, the army general who serves as Operation Warp Speed’s chief operations officer, said that two trays of vials at two California locations were colder than they are supposed to be. The same thing happened at one location in Alabama, Perna said at a news briefing Wednesday.
Each of the four trays could likely be used to vaccinate 975 people. Pfizer has said its formula needs to be stored at 70 degrees below zero Celsius, the equivalent of negative 94 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. About 2.9 million doses are being distributed across the U.S. this week.
The four trays never left the trucks they arrived on, Perna said, adding “we were taking no chances.”
Pfizer, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are all working to determine whether the formula can still be used when it reaches such low temperatures, according to Perna.
Sure, go ahead and take the shot…. ( Sarcasm btn on)
I’m a deplorable, a Southern deplorable, me and my friends are proud of it. We love deplorables, and the more deplorable the better. Millions of deplorables are on the path to becoming rebels and brothers and sisters, no matter where they live. The people that live on both the Northeast and West coasts generally hate Southerners, and they don’t care for the people that live in the flyover states either. They are condescending if not outright contemptuous of us. The truth is, the “elites” on the coasts need us far more, than we need them. In fact, we don’t need them at all, they are actually parasitic in nature. The political structure, as it really is, is composed of plutocrats, autocrats, and oligarchs – the parasitic State that is, of whom the vast majority live on the coasts. However, they devise the systems that absorb and suck up the wealth and resources (and therefore the political power) of the country, and concentrate it all in their hands.
Rebels and deplorables are learning again there is an answer to that – BECOME UNGOVERNABLE. We don’t have massive wealth or political power, but we do have one source of power that if properly wielded would be invincible – our numbers. We would not all have to read from the same script, just each and everyone of our vast numbers merely do nothing to cooperate or facilitate in any way with the oligarchal State, be consistent and proactive about it every way one can. When millions of us adopt this stance they will absolutely positively hate it.
The political and social turmoil should become worse in the next 4 years, don’t dread it, welcome it. The State won’t tolerate a prolonged and strident challenge to its authority, and will take some kind of heavy-handed steps to stop it (Constitutional limits on authority will be ignored of course). When it does, the State will sense something it hasn’t felt since the 1860s, desperation and mortality, it will realize we are becoming empowered at their expense. This is contrasted with the recents riots this past summer. The State did almost nothing to stop these riots and mass acts of public lawlessness. This is because the riots and chaos were actually working in behalf of, and in concert with State objectives. It won’t have the same sentiment for we conservatives, traditionalists, etc., no matter, there will be millions of us. Let the fun begin!
Confederate Bill, well said. Now I’ll call myself a REBEL FROM ANOTHER REGION & a Proud Deplorable.
Your comment needs to be printed in every editorial column in every newspaper in all 50 states.
I consider myself a Canadian deplorable who aligns himself with American deplorables. I agree with your statement 100%.
Covid vaccine = Darwin Award 2020. We are watching people get set up for “harvesting”, whatever that happens to be.
I can’t imagine the sheeplike qualities of those ready to be injected with this obvious poison. The sheer off-the-map behavior of the government re: covid should be enough to tell you something has gone completely south.
Pfizer may be monitoring the Alaska healthcare worker, but for the hospital bill that person is all on their own. No liability for damages from the vaccine thanks to the US government. And don’t think the government is going to pay your hospital bill either.
