this patient, these patients to have the reaction are now in a category where they cannot get a second dose but at least they get 52% protection from the first dose. look at the risks versus benefits, for most people if you don't have a mild reaction it is still recommended to get the vaccine. is requested also not to get the vaccine if you are allergic and if the ingredients in the vaccine, things like lipids, the m rna itself, glycol, polyethylene in the vaccine. >> got to talk to your doctor about what you are allergic to. let me get pfizer at statement, quote, we don't yet have all the details of the report from alaska about a potential serious allergic reaction but are working with local health authorities to assess and closely monitor all reports about serious allergic reactions following vaccination. and important point you verify, got to talk to your doctor. as always we appreciate it. time is 18 after the air.
