“These four team members represent fewer than 0.15% of the approximately 3,000 who have so far received vaccinations across Advocate Aurora Health. At this time, we can share three team members are home and doing well, and one is receiving additional treatment,” Advocate Aurora Health said in a statement.
Elsewhere, three healthcare workers in Alaska suffered allergic reactions to the vaccine, CNN reports.
A clinician in Fairbanks on Thursday experienced “a probable anaphylactic reaction” about 10 minutes after the injection during an observation period.
The clinician had symptoms of tongue swelling, hoarse voice and difficulty breathing, according to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital. She was released six hours later.
