The program follows reports of a number of similar reactions in the UK, where health officials advised that anyone with a history of severe allergies should not take the Pfizer vaccine. U.S. regulators last week recommended that people should be monitored for allergy symptoms for 15 minutes after receiving the bullet, which was approved for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration on Friday.

Pfizer coordinates with local officials, closely monitors all reports suggesting a severe allergic reaction and updates billing language if needed, spokeswoman Jerica said Pitts in a statement.

The incident came to light when the first hiccups in the U.S. vaccine circulation erupted on Wednesday, including a holdup in the delivery of 3,900 beats to two states and the news that Pfizer would deliver about 900,000 more fewer doses next week than expected to be scrapped this week.

“We were not taking any chances,” he said at a press conference on Wednesday. Pfizer and federal health agencies are working to see if the formula can still be used when it reaches such low temperatures, according to Perna.

Pfizer uses the doses in temperature-controlled shipping vessels developed by its own engineers. Each device is equipped with GPS trackers “for continuous and real-time monitoring and temperature,” according to the company, which has a round-the-clock control tower that monitors all loads.

Less satisfaction
