Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) have occurred with COVID vaccines BUT are extremely rare (17 cases in approximately 1.9 million vaccinated in the U.S.-as of 1/11/21). Most of these cases were in people who had a previous anaphylactic episode to another vaccine or to a component in COVID vaccine. If you have a history of an immediate (<4 hours after exposure) or severe allergic reaction to polyethylene glycol (PEG), a polysorbate or polyoxyl 35 castor oil (e.g. paclitaxel) containing injectable or vaccine {Modified from Banerji A et al. The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice (2021)}, then you should consult with your physician here at Allergy and Asthma Associates prior to receiving your vaccine. Otherwise, the CDC recommends that those with a history of an immediate allergic reaction of any severity to a vaccine or injectable therapy and persons with a history of anaphylaxis due to any cause to wait 30 minutes at the vaccine clinic for observation.
