The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)issued a warning that people with a history of "significant" allergic reactions (such as the previous history of anaphylactoid reaction or those who have been advised to carry an adrenaline autoinjector)  should not receive the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine. 

NHS England has confirmed that the two people who work at  NHS  had allergic reactions to the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19  vaccine they received on Tuesday. They developed symptoms of "anaphylactoid reaction"  and it is understood that they are recovering well.

 "As is common with new vaccines the MHRA have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely yesterday. Both are recovering well," explained Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for the NHS in England.
