I have heard that people with allergies cannot get the vaccine. Is this true?
Initially with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, there was concern regarding allergic reactions. As we have accumulated millions more people receiving these vaccines, it appears there is no increased risk of an allergic reaction. However, for ALL the vaccines (the Pfizer, Moderna and J&J vaccine), the CDC recommends a 15-minute monitored waiting period after the vaccine; and a 30-minute monitored waiting period if you have any history of serious allergies to medications.
