With the start of the distribution of vaccines in most countries of the world that represent hope for mankind and the fear of many people from receiving the vaccine against the Coronavirus, questions abound about the people who are not allowed to receive the vaccine.
According to available information, and the recommendations of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these people are prohibited from receiving the vaccine, according to the “state news” website.
Children and adolescents under 16 years old; The Centers for Disease indicated that the Pfizer vaccine is licensed for use in people aged 16 and over and that it is not approved for use in anyone under the age of 16.
What groups are prohibited from taking the Corona vaccine?
People with HIV
Pfizer has registered some HIV-positive volunteers with stable infection in its Phase 2 clinical trial, but there is not enough data yet to perform an analysis for this population.
People with HIV can be vaccinated, the CDC said, but they should be advised that the safety and efficacy of the vaccine in immunocompromised people remain unclear and they should continue to take other measures to protect themselves from infection.
People who have recently received or are planning to receive another vaccination soon
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people not get any other vaccines within the two weeks before or after getting the Corona vaccine.
Most Corona vaccination programs around the world have excluded women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning a pregnancy, because these vaccines have not been clinically tested on them during the initial trials, according to the New York Times.
On Tuesday, Britain announced the start of using the Pfizer Bionic vaccine, but the directives issued by the United Kingdom government so far have excluded pregnant women from the vaccination campaign.
Doctor Peter Marks, from the Food and Drug Administration, said in a press conference, Saturday, that the decision to give a pregnant woman the Corona vaccine will be individual, as it will remain an option available to her specialist doctor, if he finds that it is the best option for her and her fetus, according to a report published by the site ” BR “.
He pointed out that doctors in this case usually go to an equation in which they calculate whether the benefits outweigh the risks, but at present, the vaccine “is not something we recommend now.”
Alison Kelvin, a researcher on influenza and infectious diseases at the Canadian Center for Vaccine Science, explained that women during pregnancy are “immunologically different” to protect the developing fetus, so “a pregnant woman may have a different response” to the “vaccine” when she is pregnant versus when she is not pregnant. ”
To date, the safety of the vaccine has not been studied in lactating women; Therefore, there is no data to guide whether they should be vaccinated.
Dennis Jamieson, who specializes in obstetrics and teaches at Emory University School of Medicine, says that the category of pregnant and breastfeeding women is usually combined, and they are originally two groups.
In her interview with the radio network, “NPR”, she points out that in theory, there is less concern about side effects on breastfeeding women, as women who normally take measles, mumps, and rubella vaccinations, without any side effects.
People with allergies
Reports that two nurses in Britain developed anaphylaxis after being vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine last week have raised concerns about whether people with allergies should be vaccinated.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that people who are allergic to foods, animals, insects, and other common allergies can be vaccinated.
However, she warned people who had allergic symptoms after receiving the first dose of the vaccine, to not receive another dose, and also indicated that people with a history of severe allergies to any of the components of the Pfizer vaccine should not be vaccinated with it.
