Chinese Covid-19 vaccines are safe for people with allergies

The China CDC says Covid-19 vaccines are safe for those with a history of allergies, including to medications like antibiotics, as health authorities try to encourage more people to get the jab.
 

“Some people are allergic to pollen, some have rhinitis – it’s what we call an allergic constitution and not related to what’s present in vaccines. They are not listed as contraindications to the Covid-19 vaccines,” said An Zhijie, an official in charge of immunisation with the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.
 

“The current vaccines do not contain antibiotics and therefore this is not a contraindication,” An added.
 

Although China began its Covid-19 vaccine roll-out in July, the first country to do so, it now lags behind other nations with fewer shots administered per capita. Nearly 142 million doses had been given by Monday, or about 10 for every 100 people. That compares to countries with higher inoculation rates such as Israel, where 114 doses have been administered per 100 people, Britain’s 56 doses per 100 people, and 50 doses per 100 people in the United States.
 

That immunisation gap puts the prospect of reopening borders in doubt, and Chinese authorities are keen to catch up – especially with the 2022 Winter Olympics, to be held in Beijing and neighbouring city Zhangjiakou, only about 300 days away. China is ramping up vaccine production and education campaigns in the hope of getting 40 per cent of the population, about 560 million people, inoculated by June and has set a target of 80 per cent to be vaccinated by the start of next year at the earliest.
 

“过敏体质”能不能打新冠病毒疫苗?

很多人都关心“过敏体质”能不能打新冠病毒疫苗?《新冠病毒疫苗接种技术指南(第一版)》中,接种禁忌里有两条都和“过敏”有关。一个是对疫苗的活性成分、非活性成分、生产工艺中使用的物质过敏者,或以前接种同类疫苗时出现过敏者;第二个是既往发生过疫苗严重过敏反应者。那么问题来了,现在花粉过敏、抗生素过敏的人群不在少数,他们到底能不能接种新冠病毒疫苗?
 

中国疾病预防控制中心免疫规划中心副主任安志杰:因为现在目前的这个疫苗成分里边是不含抗生素的,这个抗生素过敏是不作为接种禁忌的。对于一般的过敏,你比方说有些人是过敏性鼻炎,有一些可能是花粉过敏,因为它跟疫苗成分没有直接的关系,所谓的过敏体质,这不是一个疫苗的接种禁忌。
 

新冠病毒疫苗引发的过敏到底是什么表现?
 

中国疾病预防控制中心免疫规划中心副主任安志杰:真正疫苗过敏的这个比例,其实并不是很高的,比较常见的就是一些过敏性皮疹,这是当然可能一下子就过去的,很快就恢复了,当然我们也有监测到一些,你比方说稍微比较严重的一点,就是过敏性休克,这个发生概率是非常非常低的,一般是百万分之一以下这样一个水平。
