Healthcare professionals are also taking measures to ensure that any adverse reaction, if any, are immediately taken care of.

"We have more than enough Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to cover all of the remaining eight and a half million people", he said.

The report included data from more than 3.6 million people who received at least one COVID-19 dose before Sunday, Feb. 21, and completed a health survey on v-safe, a CDC program that tracks reactions to the immunizations, within seven days.

The study was published this week in the JAMA medical journal and can be found here. Almost 70 per cent of those said they had some kind of injection site reaction, like pain or swelling, and half had generalised reaction like fatigue or chills.

The Justice Department will also be asked to draft a "red flag law" which states can then use to create their own legislation. They can be bought by minors and people who would not pass background checks.

On the first day of the United Kingdom campaign for COVID-19 vaccination, there were reports of two cases of anaphylaxis - a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction - within minutes of administration of the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccine. Reactogenicity refers to a subset of reactions that occur soon after vaccination.

According to the study, 73 percent of those who got the Moderna shot said they had an injection site reaction, while 65 percent with a side effect received a Pfizer dose. The gap widened after the second dose. When people are called, they should get their jab.

For now the vaccine has emergency authorization for use in people 16 and older.

Britain is aiming to give a first dose of Covid-19 vaccine all over-50s by mid-April and all adults by the end of July.
