Coronavirus vaccines compared: What to know about shots from Moderna and Pfizer, from safety to side effects

  Coronavirus vaccines compared: What to know about shots from Moderna and Pfizer, from safety to side effects Moderna and Pfizer have COVID-19 vaccines that are safe and effective, based on testing in tens of thousands of people. But there are differences.The Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use authorization for Pfizer's two-shot vaccine last week, and agency regulators are expected to greenlight Moderna's very similar two-dose mRNA shot course later this week. An FDA expert panel will meet Thursday to discuss and vote on Moderna's shot, teeing up an agency decision that could come as soon as Friday.

Six cases of anaphylaxis have now been documented in the United States, and two in Britain. Some experts have pointed to polyethylene glycol, or PEG, a chemical found in many pharmaceutical products, including laxatives like Miralax, that has very rarely been found to cause allergic reactions.

(Bloomberg) -- About one in 400,000 recipients of the Moderna Inc. Covid-19 vaccine had a severe allergic reaction to the first shot, according to a study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Friday.

The research, which tracked 10 cases of anaphylaxis among about 4 million doses administered through Jan. 10, concludes that such reactions to the vaccine still appear to be rare. Anaphylaxis to vaccines is uncommon but well-established -- with flu shots, for instance, it occurs about 1.3 times per million doses administered, according to CDC officials.

Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction that rarely occurs after a vaccine, with the To better understand the extent of the issue, scientists from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ( CDC ) analysed reports of suspected severe allergic reactions and anaphylaxis following

The agency found the shot was similarly effective across racial and ethnic groups and those with underlying medical conditions. Hypersensitivity reactions appeared to be somewhat more common in people who got the vaccine, but there were no severe anaphylactic reactions that occurred soon

The CDC continues to emphasize the safety of Covid-19 vaccines. It recommends that only those who are allergic to a component of Covid-19 vaccines or who had a severe allergic reaction to an initial dose avoid receiving the shots. The risk of contracting Covid-19 outweighs that posed by the vaccines, officials and clinicians say.

“Early monitoring of both the Moderna and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines indicate that anaphylaxis following vaccination is a rare event, and although anaphylaxis is serious, it occurs shortly after vaccination (usually within minutes), is readily diagnosed, and effective treatments are available,” CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said in an email. “Patients experiencing anaphylaxis after vaccination do well and recover.”

Moderna is playing dumb, or perhaps it really does not know due to incompetence, about how many doses from the affected lot have been plunged Just days after the deadly side effects really started to ramp up from Moderna ’s jabs, California majorly expanded the vaccine eligibility requirements to

The CDC’s Nordlund said that as of Jan. 19, there have been 15 cases of anaphylaxis with the Moderna shot and 45 with the Pfizer shot, rates of 2.1 cases per million doses and 6.2 cases per million doses, respectively. The rates could change as more people are immunized and the CDC obtains more data, Nordlund said.

A CDC study on the Pfizer Inc.-BioNTech SE vaccine released earlier this month found about 11.1 cases of anaphylaxis per one million doses administered, similar but somewhat higher than Moderna’s 2.5 cases per one million doses.

All 10 patients who experienced anaphylaxis after receiving the Moderna shot were treated with epinephrine. Six were hospitalized, including five patients who received intensive care. Four then went on to need intubation.

The CDC said there have been no deaths and the eight patients for which it had follow-up information had been sent home from the hospital or had recovered.

How Moderna and BioNTech are writing the future of pharma .
The companies at the forefront of the first Covid-19 vaccines in the west are leading examples of a new era for pharmaceuticals.On Dec. 18, Moderna became the second company to have its Covid-19 vaccine receive emergency use authorization (pdf) in the US. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave it the green light a little over a week after it authorized Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine. Britain and Canada have also authorized the Pfizer/BioNTech jab, while the European Union did so on Dec. 21, signaling the beginning of the end of the Covid-19 pandemic, as these rich developed nations take on the Herculean task of vaccinating more than 800 million people.
