Regarding Covid 19 vaccines
Many of our allergy patients ask if it is OK for them to receive one of the currently available vaccines. In most cases, the answer to this question is yes. Dr. McGeehan is actively following reports of adverse reactions to these vaccines, and will stay knowledgeable about changing guidelines. For patients with a history of severe allergic reactions, especially to injectable medications, we agree with the current guidelines that call for a 30 minute wait period after the vaccine, as opposed to the 15 minute wait period for everyone else. In a patient with a history of a severe allergic reaction to a product containing PEG or polysorbates, please schedule an appointment.
[Polyethylene glycol (PEG) and polysorbates are similar compounds. Severe allergic reactions to them are very rare, but have been reported. They are commonly found in colonoscopy preparations, in multiple vaccines, in many injectable medications, in many topical products, and also in film-coated tablets.]
