California Recommends to Suspend Moderna Vaccine Batch Due to High Number of Adverse Events



Moderna, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are currently reviewing the batch after around 10 people suffered "a possible severe allergic reaction".

According to the California Department of Public Health, doses from Moderna Lot 041L20A are suspected of causing a "higher-than-usual number of adverse events", and should be put away before a probe is concluded.

The said incidents appear to be localised at a single community clinic, which was reportedly closed for several hours after the adverse reactions were reported.
