Don't get a coronavirus vaccine if you're in these 3 groups of people 83 |

With coronavirus cases seemingly not slowing down anytime soon and vaccines just around the corner, many people are wondering if it's safe for them to take one. The Pfizer vaccine has already begun rolling out in the UK, and now the UK-based Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has said these three groups of people shouldn't get the vaccine.

The main basis for the JCVI not recommending these groups of people the coronavirus vaccine is because the clinical studies didn't include these groups of people. The groups that the JCVI doesn't recommend getting a vaccine are pregnant women, children 16-years and under, and people who have a history of serious allergic reactions.

JCVI does make an exception for a child receiving the vaccine, "The Committee advises that only those children at very high risk of exposure and serious outcomes, such as older children with severe neuro-disabilities that require residential care, should be offered vaccination."

Pregnant women - "Given the lack of evidence, JCVI favours a precautionary approach, and does not currently advise Covid-19 vaccination in pregnancy. Women should be advised not to come forward for vaccination if they may be pregnant or are planning a pregnancy within three months of the first dose."

Allergic reactions - "The MHRA issued new advice to health care professionals stating that any person with a significant allergic reaction to a vaccine, medicine or food - such as previous history of anaphylactoid reaction, or those who have been advised to carry an adrenaline autoinjector - should not receive the Pfizer/BioNtech vaccine."

"The advice also states that vaccines "should only be carried out in facilities where resuscitation measures are available."
