On Saturday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued guidance about the coronavirus vaccine. Many people have been wary of getting the vaccine after multiple allergic reactions in individuals who had just received the vaccine.

The CDC now says that Americans with a history of allergic reactions to any of the ingredients present in the vaccine should not receive it.

The guidance reads:

If you have ever had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient in a COVID-19 vaccine, CDC recommends that you not get that specific vaccine. If you have had a severe allergic reaction to other vaccines or injectable therapies, you should ask your doctor if you should get a COVID-19 vaccine. Your doctor will help you decide if it is safe for you to get vaccinated.

However, the CDC still believes that people with a general history of allergies may still be vaccinated.

“CDC recommends that people with a history of severe allergic reactions not related to vaccines or injectable medications—such as allergies to food, pet, venom, environmental, or latex—may still get vaccinated. People with a history of allergies to oral medications or a family history of severe allergic reactions, or who might have a milder allergy to vaccines (no anaphylaxis)—may also still get vaccinated,” the CDC explained. “If you have a severe allergic reaction after getting the first shot, you should not get the second shot.”

The CDC added that individuals with a history of “severe allergic reactions” will be monitored for 30 minutes after receiving the vaccine.

The CDC released the guidance after the Food and Drug Administration stated that they were investigating at least five allergic reactions to the vaccine.

Dr. Peter Marks, director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said at a press conference that experts were not sure what had caused the allergic reactions, but identified polyethylene glycol as the potential “culprit.”

The ingredient is present in both Pfizer’s vaccine and Moderna’s vaccine.
