UK regulators urge people with history of ‘significant’ allergies NOT to have Pfizer vaccine injection – just 24 hours after Britain’s mass inoculation kicked off.

Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for the NHS in England, said: ‘As is common with new vaccines the MHRA have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely yesterday. Both are recovering well.’
