The Centers for Disease Control guidelines have been updated to now say that anyone who has previously suffered an immediate allergic reaction of any severity to any ingredient of Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccines should not be vaccinated unless they have been cleared by doctors. This and more in the Wayne County Report for January 6, 2020.
One ingredient that is being carefully examined is called polyethylene glycol. It’s a compound that’s used to stabilize and transport bubble for the messenger RNA in the vaccines. It has never been used in a vaccine before, but it is an ingredient in many drugs. The CDC also said anyone with an allergy to polysorbate should not get the vaccines.
The countywide health data released January 5 showed Taylor had 10 newly confirmed cases, upping its total to 2,806. There was one more COVID-related death, upping that overall total to 115.
The City strongly suggests that residents always wear masks when and where they are recommended. Residents can pick up free reusable face masks at City Hall. Social distance. Sanitize your hands on a regular basis.
