My experience of vaccine shot: Dr. Hossein

A doctor with a shellfish allergy had a serious allergic reaction on Christmas Eve after getting Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine in the first week of its national roll-out, according to U.S. media sources.

Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh, a geriatric oncologist at the Boston Medical Center. He began getting dizzy and his heart started pounding shortly after he got vaccinated on Thursday.

My heart rate was 150, my normal heart rate is 75 but six, seven minutes after the injection of the vaccine, I felt in my tongue and also my throat having, like, some weird sensation of tingling and numbness, the same reaction that I had before to my shellfish allergy,” Sadrzadeh told CNN on Friday.

How he reacted to this situation

As his blood pressure dropped, he decided to use his personal EpiPen, a common adrenaline auto-injector to treat acute allergic reactions, that he had brought to the vaccine appointment before he was rushed to the emergency room.

It was the “worst allergic reaction” I had experienced as an adult. I really want people to take this seriously, those people who have severe allergic reactions.

Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh

Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh advised that people should talk to their doctors, to their allergist. they should carry their EpiPen if they have it at home and also inform the person that is administering that injection to them that they have a severe allergic reaction. “I had the experience. I was a physician, and I was scared to death,” Sadrzadeh said.

Sadrzadeh’s case is reportedly the first severe reaction publicly linked to Moderna’s vaccine, which like the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, has been developed using the mRNA technology. For more exciting stuff please subscribe to our Facebook Page.

Which ingredient of vaccine is causing allergies

It’s still unknown what ingredient in the coronavirus vaccines may be causing severe allergic reactions in some people. Dr. Peter Marks, who heads the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said in a briefing last week that the agency is investigating a compound known as polyethylene glycol (PEG), as well as four other possible ingredients in the formulation.

However, the vaccine manufacturers are campaigning that people should not avoid vaccination shot due to any allergic factor and it’s natural as it is their product they have to sell the product as well as build goodwill for future opportunities. However, like always scientists are focused on short-term reactions to this newly introduced vaccine, what happens after a few years has been left on learning as you go mode.
