After the start of mass vaccination against SARS-CoV-2, the British authorities have called on people with a “significant” allergy history not to be vaccinated for the time being.

Two NHS staff with a history of allergic reactions after receiving the dose, NHS Chief Stephen Powis told a parliamentary committee in London today. “Both are recovering well.”

Powis said the warning was just a precautionary measure, as is common with new vaccines. The UK was the first country in the world to grant emergency approval to the German pharmaceutical company Biontech and its US partner Pfizer for their CoV vaccine, which has been in widespread use since yesterday. On the first day, several hundred people were vaccinated, according to British media reports.

The Biontech Pfizer drug alone will not be enough. “We expect to have a portfolio of three or four vaccines that we can use by mid-year (2021),” Chris Whitty, medical government advisor, told the committee. The Swedish-British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, for example, has developed vaccines together with the University of Oxford and the U.S. company Moderna.
