Anthony Fauci, Chief Medical Advisor to the US President, told reporters that the second round of COVID-19 treatment knocked him out for 24 hours.
Fauci took Moderna, the first round of COVID-19 treatment, on live television back in December. When asked about his well being from the second round he said that he was fine.
“I was hoping that I wouldn’t get too knocked out. I did for about 24 hours. Now I’m fine. Fatigued. A little achy. You know. Chilly. Not sick.” said Anthony Fauci.
According to the CDC data tracker, as of January 24 2021, 502,131 people have received 1 or more doses and 3,216,836 people have received 2 doses.
Mild or severe reactions are not uncommon when getting vaccinated. Since the FDA approved the COVID-19 vaccines rapidly due to the health emergency facing the world, CDC reported at least 10 anaphylactic reactions from the Moderna vaccine, with a ratio of 2.5 in one million people.
Unrelated to the COVID-19 Moderna treatment, in a study titled, ‘Risk of anaphylaxis after vaccination in children and adults’, published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health, results identified 33 confirmed vaccine-triggered anaphylaxis cases. Out of 25,173,965 vaccine doses, 33 had an anaphylactic reaction. So it is considered to be a rare reaction.
