ER Editor: Please note that at this site, we have published fairly extensively on what the mRNA gene-changing vaccine is about and why people should under no circumstances have it. As an example, see Dr. Wodarg and Dr. Yeadon Request a Stop of ALL Corona Vaccination Studies, Call to SIGN THE PETITION and Not One but TWO Effective, Safe and Inexpensive Cures for Covid Exist [VIDEO].
We also remind readers of the civil indemnity Pfizer has been granted by the UK government. See UK Govt Grants Pfizer Civil Legal Indemnity for Covid-19 Vaccine.
So the rollout of the vaccine in the UK began this week, incredibly to very old people first, who, in the incomplete clinical trials that have just finished, would NEVER have been considered suitable trial participants because of their relative fragility. Trials only use those considered the most healthy.
So yesterday, two healthcare workers experienced some level of anaphylactic shock following their first vaccine (they will have two in total). Now, we’re told, UK citizens won’t get to choose which vaccine they get during the upcoming months:
England’s Chief Medical Officer has said that Britons won’t get to choose which vaccine they get during the first months of rollout despite the MHRA warning people with a history of allergic reactions to skip Pfizer’s jab.
Chris Whitty, England’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO), told lawmakers on Wednesday that people will not get to select which vaccine they want to take during the first phase of the UK’s mass immunization programme.
You couldn’t make this up.
The reports we are publishing or quoting below do not, according to our research, do a good enough job of reporting on what vaccine dangers might be, and make no mention of the risky methodology of the new mRNA vaccine.
They do the standard media job of minimizing the issue while being obliged to report on it.
We also wonder about all those non-medical professionals who are being recruited to deliver this vaccine. It does not inspire confidence.
Those of us with allergies will recognize the phrase ‘anaphylactic reaction’, defined as:
Anaphylaxis (an-a-fi-LAK-sis) is a serious, life-threatening allergic reaction. The most common anaphylactic reactions are to foods, insect stings, medications and latex. If you are allergic to a substance, your immune system overreacts to this allergen by releasing chemicals that cause allergy symptoms.
The Daily Mail article, however, uses a slightly different technical term in quotation marks, ‘anaphylactoid reactions‘, thus steering the reader away from the previous term. This is defined as:
Anaphylactoid reactions are defined as those reactions that produce the same clinical picture with anaphylaxis but are not IgE mediated, occur through a direct nonimmune-mediated release of mediators from mast cells and/or basophils or result from direct complement activation.
Who on earth knows what ‘not IgEmediated’ means and ‘direct nonimmune-mediated release’ unless you have a medical qualification? Likely, this will be a popular search term today. Hopefully, people will ALSO look up the word anaphylaxis and find:
Anaphylaxis is a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to something you’re allergic to, such as peanuts or bee stings.
They know what they’re doing.
UK Warns People With “Severe Allergies” Shouldn’t Take COVID Vaccine
Millions of Britons, particularly the most vulnerable in their society, probably breathed a sigh of relief on Tuesday when NHS leaders introduced the first patient to receive a dose of the still-experimental Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine: A 90-year-old woman on the cusp of her 91st birthday who said she is thrilled she’ll be able to spend the holiday with family without fear. Adding to the media interest, patient No. 2 was a man, 81, named “William Shakespeare”.
One day later, after a week where leading vaccine developers like Pfizer and Moderna warned about supply constraints, hinting that they’re widely touted projections might be unrealistic, and forcing President Trump to sign an executive order to try and ensure American patients are treated as a priority, the Britain’s pharma regulator has dropped a bombshell warning.
The MHRA (Britain’s regulator) warned Wednesday that any patients with histories of having “powerful allergic overreactions” should avoid the vaccine. For a report published by a professional news agency like Reuters, the details were surprisingly vague. Since a huge number of Americans are allergic to something, a little more clarity would be appreciated.
As someone who has many allergies, I wish we had more info on which allergens were an issue. “any person with a history of significant allergic reactions to vaccines, medicine or food should not receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.” https://t.co/ja6SNtiEbA

According to public opinion polls, state and federal health officials have apparently been succeeding in establishing “credibility” of these vaccines. But there’s no question that setbacks like this could have a profound affect on individuals’ willingness to accept the vaccine, which also reportedly comes with punishing side effects.
Britain began mass vaccinating its population on Tuesday in a global drive that poses one of the biggest logistical challenges in peacetime history, starting with the elderly and frontline workers National Health Service medical director Stephen Powis said the advice had been changed after two NHS workers reported anaphylactoid reactions associated with receiving the vaccine. “As is common with new vaccines the MHRA (regulator) have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination, after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely yesterday,” Powis said. “Both are recovering well.”
A relatively scant report released yesterday by the FDA argued the Pfizer vaccine’s efficacy and safety data met its expectations for authorization. It also warned that 0.63% of people in the vaccine group and 0.51% in the placebo group reported possible allergic reactions in trials, which Peter Openshaw, Professor of Experimental Medicine at Imperial College London, brushed off as a “very small number.”
What’s more: In the US, at least 2, possibly 3, participants from the Pfizer and Moderna trials have died in the following weeks.
As more serious questions arise, fueling “conspiratorial” skepticism directly challenging the narrative that the vaccines have been thoroughly and appropriately studied before being unleashed upon the population, more bold faced names are speaking up to denounce the skeptics after Joe Biden yesterday labeled wearing masks – to be fair, a totally different subject from vaccines – one’s “Patriotic Duty”. On CNBC earlier, author Walter Isaacson warned that choosing not to get a COVID vaccine was tantamount to endangering lives everywhere you go.

Warning over UK vaccine rollout as two NHS staff given jab suffer ‘anaphylactoid reaction’: Regulators urge people with history of ‘significant’ allergies NOT to have Pfizer injection – just 24 hours after Britain’s mass inoculation kicked off
JAMES GANT and MARTIN ROBINSON, CHIEF REPORTER for MAILONLINE
WHAT ARE THE KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS FROM THE PFIZER VACCINE?
The UK medicines regulator advised today that anyone who has a history of ‘significant’ allergic reactions to medicines, food or vaccines should not get the Pfizer coronavirus jab.
Dr June Raine, the chief executive of the MHRA, told Parliament’s Science and Technology Committee that this was not identified in the trials.
‘We know from very extensive clinical trials that this wasn’t a feature,’ she said. (ER: Likely because the trials should have gone on for YEARS, not months.)
Allergic reactions to the vaccine are ‘very rare’, according to the trials involving more than 40,000 people.
Pfizer found a ‘very small number’ during its phase three clinical studies, or 137 out of 19,000 people who got the vaccine.
They also identified 12 possible side-effects from the vaccine, with seven identified as ‘very common’ meaning they are likely to affect more than one in ten people. Below are the known side effects.
The patient safety leaflet for the vaccine cautions that anyone with an allergy to any of the active substances in the vaccine should not receive the jab. (ER: Are recipients of the vaccine asked about this first, with a sufficient level of knowledge demonstrated by them before the vaccine is administered?)
It adds: ‘Signs of an allergic reaction may include itchy skin rash, shortness of breath and swelling of the face or tongue.’
Allergic reactions to the vaccine are:
Very common (Likely to affect more than one in ten people)
- Pain at injection site
- Muscle pain
- Joint pain
Common (Likely to affect up to one in ten people)
- Injection site swelling
- Redness at injection site
Uncommon (May affect one in 100 people)
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Feeling unwell
The UK’s world-first Covid-19 vaccine rollout has hit problems within 24 hours after anyone with a serious allergy to medicines or food was told not to have the Pfizer jab because two NHS staff fell ill just after being vaccinated on V-Day.
The number of people set to be barred is not known, but up to 7 million people in Britain have allergies severe enough to require medical care, according to the NHS, while around 250,000 people need to carry an EpiPen at all times.
Today Britain’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) gave precautionary advice to all 50 NHS trusts now vaccinating the population that anyone who has a history of ‘significant’ allergic reactions should not receive the vaccine.
Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for the NHS in England, said: ‘The MHRA have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely yesterday. Both are recovering well.’
Both the unnamed healthcare workers needed immediate treatment but are ‘recovering well’ after they developed symptoms shortly after receiving the jab on the first day of Britain’s biggest ever mass vaccination programme yesterday.
It is not known if either person needed to use the EpiPens they both carry with them at all times.
Despite the two allergy cases, the Government is today continuing to vaccinate between 5,000 and 7,000 people per day across the UK with 800,000 Pfizer doses already in hospitals and millions more on the way.
The two NHS staff suffered an anaphylactoid reaction to the vaccine, which is milder than anaphylaxis, and tends to involve a rash, shortness of breath, swelling of the face and tongue or a drop in blood pressure, the NHS says.
In the US vaccine trial carried out by Pfizer, 137 out of around 19,000 people given the vaccine had one or more of these reactions. But 111 who got the placebo also had allergic reactions. (ER: What was the placebo? Most often, it is not a simple saline solution in vaccine trials but may be another vaccine.)
Reactions to the jab can include a temperature, nausea, swelling of the arm or in severe cases feeling generally unwell with swollen lymph node glands.
A Pfizer spokesman said: ‘We have been advised by MHRA of two yellow card reports that may be associated with allergic reaction due to administration of the COVID-19 BNT162b2 vaccine.
‘As a precautionary measure, the MHRA has issued temporary guidance to the NHS while it conducts an investigation in order to fully understand each case and its causes. Pfizer and BioNTech are supporting the MHRA in the investigation.
‘In the pivotal phase 3 clinical trial, this vaccine was generally well tolerated with no serious safety concerns reported by the independent Data Monitoring Committee. The trial has enrolled over 44,000 participants to date, over 42,000 of whom have received a second vaccination’.
The allergy scare came hours after Britain’s drug regulator dismissed safety fears over the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine after a report revealed four people in a trial in the US got Bell’s palsy. The condition, which is usually temporary, causes muscles on one side of the face to droop because of nerves not working properly.
Four cases of it were found in a group of 21,720 people who had the Pfizer vaccine in a trial in the US, compared to none among 21,728 people given a placebo vaccine. (ER: Again, we ask what this is.) But this rate of occurrence is no different to how often it would be expected to happen in a random population, the company said.
