"In all the cases no one has died and it's been all treatable. Most them occurred within the first 10 minutes," said Peter Chin-Hong, a UCSF Infectious Disease specialist.
Dr. Peter Chin-Hong says these cases are rare and added, "The allergic reaction are likely happening because the fatty bubble that incases the message and that messenger RNA vaccine might be an allergen to some people. But the good news is that it's not a lot of people," said Dr. Chin-Hong.

"Placer County Public Health and the Placer County Sheriff-Coroner Division were recently notified of the death of an individual who tested positive for COVID-19 in late December.
The individual was administered a COVID-19 vaccine several hours before their death on January 21st, 2021. The vaccine was not administered by Placer County Public Health. There are multiple local, state, and federal agencies actively investigating this case; any reports surrounding the cause of death are premature, pending the outcome of the investigation. Our thoughts are with the family of the deceased. VO: The CDC published this graph revealing which of the 10 people who had an allergic reaction to the vaccine had previous allergies."
"So far none of these kinds of deaths have been attached to the vaccine nor it's there a biological reason for that occur that is linked to the vaccine itself," said Dr. Chin-Hong.
Luz Pena: "Is there a group of people who shouldn't get vaccinated?"
Dr. Peter Chin-Hong: "Actually, there is no group of people who shouldn't get vaccinated unless you're a child under the age of 16 with Pfizer or under the age of 18 with Moderna because that wasn't studied. Everybody else is fair game to get a vaccine".
