Dr. Gounder Recommends Waiting on COVID Vaccine if You’ve Had a History of Severe Allergic Reaction

You would think that [the severe allergic reactions to the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine] would have come up in all of the phase trials already with those who were getting the vaccine, because that’s such a noticeable reaction. Well, I think it’s important to understand that when we do these Phase 3 clinical studies, we are actually intentionally excluding a certain population, so people who’ve had severe side effects… pregnant women, children, they were not included in these Phase 3 clinical trials. And, in fact, the way the vaccine is approved for use in the U.K., they are recommending, even prior to these allergic reactions happening, they were recommending against giving them to people who’ve had severe allergic reactions.

    WOW! This blows my mind. Were all the volunteers who participated super healthy? So now, if you have a severe allergic reaction requiring epinephrine and maybe CPR it’s still safe?

    MSNBC is so hopeful for more doom & gloom coming. What a marketing tool! “Come and get your shots & overwhelm the ED with people crashing!” Pure insanity.

    Re: 2:18-2:35…….. Wait, WHAT?

    So, if someone currently dies of a heart attack and tests positive for COVID19 it’s listed as cause of death, but if someone dies of a heart attack after being inoculated with the COVID19 vaccine, that would have happened regardless?

    Seriously, am I the ONLY one who sees what’s going on here??????

    Kimberly, My 18 year old came up with the exact same conclusion. What really angers me is to see some of my extended family that works in healthcare being forced to get the vaccine to keep their jobs. Besides not being tested on people with pre-existing health conditions, they don’t know if it effects fertility or if it hurts a person if they already had covid. How can artificial immunity somehow be so much better than natural? If they can’t prove they had it, they can’t get out of it. It’s criminal!

    or they are using “allergies” as an excuse for reactions, rather than calling it an injury from the vaccine.

    No for adverse reactions the term they like is enhanced immune response…

    the law that was passed that gave drug companies complete immunity from being sued, for any reason, needs to be reversed. instead they should have to be accountable for all their actions and now the government is pushing them to get their job done without applying adequate safe guards.
    next we they will tell us that we have to take these vaccines and if we chose not to, they will get all hospital and clinics to require that we have these vaccines or will NOT be able to get a procedure done that is vital to our health. sounds just like all the BLACKMAIL THAT GOES ON IN WASHINGTON ON A DAILY BASIS.
