The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has begun investigating ‘about five’ cases of severe allergic reactions in people who were vaccinated with the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus jabs, the head of the FDA vaccine department Peter Marks said at a briefing.


He said that the regulator received information about ‘several cases’ of allergies from different states, which may be associated with polyethylene glycol, which is part of the vaccine.

At the same time, he stressed that, however, it is still impossible to say exactly this.

Nurse Tiffany Dover passed out after being vaccinated against COVID-19, NEWS.ru reported earlier.

The woman felt unwell during a press conference at the ‘COVID’ hospital, where she spoke about her health and the situation with COVID-19 in Tennessee.
