Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “France reports 1st case of allergic reaction to Pfizer Covid-19 jab as country continues vaccine rollout”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Of the 138,000 French people vaccinated on Monday, Véran said there had been one case of an "adverse reaction of an allergic nature," but added that the outcome was "favorable" and the consequences of the reaction were not serious.

Speaking during a parliamentary meeting, Véran added that the allergic reaction corresponded to adverse effects witnessed in a small number of people inoculated with the Pfizer jab in other countries.

Health officials in the US have said that, on average, around one in 100,000 people experience a severe allergic reaction after receiving a dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

One reason put forward for allergic reactions to the jab is that it contains polyethylene glycol (PEG), a substance found in shampoo and toothpaste, but not commonly used in vaccines.

The French Allergology Federation clarified in mid-December that people with severe allergies can receive the Pfizer jab, as long as they are not allergic to PEG.
