Two Health Care Workers Suffered Severe Allergic Reactions to Pfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine

(CNN)Two workers at an Alaska hospital suffered allergic reactions after receiving Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine this week, and one was kept for observation for at least two nights, hospital representatives said.

The hospitalized worker’s reaction was more serious but not life-threatening, doctors said: She felt flushed within the first 10 minutes of receiving the vaccine Tuesday at Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau and later reported symptoms including shortness of breath and elevated heart rate.
The second Bartlett health care worker was treated for less severe symptoms after being injected Wednesday, felt fine within an hour, and was released, hospital officials said.
