It took less than 2 days for a significant adverse reaction that was not disclosed in the Pfizer research to appear in Britain. The story is by the Associated Press found here (Web Link). It stated:

"LONDON (AP) — U.K. regulators said Wednesday that people who have a “significant history” of allergic reactions shouldn’t receive the new Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine while they investigate two adverse reactions that occurred on the first day of the country’s mass vaccination program.

Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for the National Health Service in England, said health authorities were acting on a recommendation from the Medical and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.

“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,” Powis said in a statement. “Both are recovering well.”

Why wasn't this identified prior to mass injections? Because they are RUSHING the process. In fact 50 million people have significant issues with allergies in the U.S. as seen here (Web Link.). Which is 15% of the country.

It looks like the "SAMPLES" of the Pfizer study didn't seem to have these people in it, right? They don't even know what causes this problem and what allergies

I hope the FDA takes this into account

I just heard on CNN that the Pfizer research EXCLUDED anyone with allergies in their research. It is proven from Pfizer itself seen here (Web Link).

Excluded people:

"History of severe adverse reaction associated with a vaccine and/or severe allergic reaction (eg, anaphylaxis) to any component of the study intervention(s)."

WOW, and Pfizer and the FDA is claiming this is a safe vaccine when it is NOT proven safe?

Mybe someone needs to ask more questions about this research?
