It’s been recently revealed that there are some severely allergy-like reactions that there are at least 8 people who have received the coronavirus vaccine that’s produced by Pfizer and BioNTech over the past 2 weeks – this might be due to a compound in the packaging of the messenger RNS (mRNA) that is forming the vaccine’s main ingredient, according to experts.
There’s a similar mRNA vaccine that’s been developed by Moderna, which is authorized for emergency use in the US and this one also contains the compound, polyethylene glycol (PEG).
According to ScienceMag, “PEG has never been used before in an approved vaccine, but it is found in many drugs that have occasionally triggered anaphylaxis—a potentially life-threatening reaction that can cause rashes, a plummeting blood pressure, shortness of breath, and a fast heartbeat.”
Immunologists addresses antibodies
The same notes continued and said: “Some allergists and immunologists believe a small number of people previously exposed to PEG may have high levels of antibodies against PEG, putting them at risk of an anaphylactic reaction to the vaccine.”
It’s been also revealed that the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) arranged a few meetings last week to discuss the allergic reactions with representatives of Pfizer and Moderna, independent scientists and physicians, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
