Officials with Rochester Regional Health dealt with two allergic reactions to the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday.
Both were to the first dose, and the cases were mild, health officials added. They successfully treated the reactions, and the two individuals were able to move forward toward the second dose.
Allergic reactions are rare, according to the Centers for Disease Control. However, they are possible, as is the case with any medication or treatment.
The CDC encourages people to talk with their primary care doctor before getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Especially if they are prone to allergic reactions to certain types of medications.
