Calif. Health Official Recommends Investigating Moderna Vaccine Batch
Dr. Erica Pan says a batch of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine has caused higher numbers of allergic reactions than usual.
In California, the state epidemiologist says it should pause administering a Moderna's vaccine following allergic reactions.
Erica Pan said a higher than usual number of allergic reactions were reported from people who received the Moderna vaccine at a community vaccination clinic.
She said less than 10 people required medical attention, but she is still recommending a pause on using the vaccine until there's an investigation.
