TASS, January 21. California health officials have authorized the continued use of a batch of Moderna's coronavirus vaccine, which had previously been suspended due to an allergic reaction in several patients. This was announced on Thursday by CNN.
"Out of caution, we advised suppliers to suspend distribution of the ModernCOVID-19 vaccine, batch 41L20A, on Sunday night. Yesterday we convened a Western state safety oversight working group and additional allergy and immunology specialists to review the evidence collected," CNN was quoted as saying State epidemiologist Erica Pan made a statement Wednesday. Pan clarified that the experts "found no scientific justification for extending the ban."
In total, up to 10 people complained of allergic reactions that occurred within 24 hours after Moderna vaccination. Earlier, more than 330 thousand doses of the drug from this batch were delivered to 287 supply organizations of the state.
On December 18, Modern vaccine was approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
