PPG Statement for patients regarding COVID-19 vaccine
At Parkview Physicians Group, we care about your health and would encourage our patients to be vaccinated for COVID-19 as they qualify to receive the vaccine. The vaccine is effective and safe. There are very few contraindications to receiving the vaccine and even those that have had COVID-19 should receive the vaccine. Severe reactions to the vaccine are very rare (about 11 per 1 million persons receiving the vaccine). Along with the CDC, PPG considers a history of the following to be a contraindication to vaccination with both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines:
- Severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) after a previous dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or any of its components
- Immediate allergic reaction of any severity to a previous dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or any of its components (including polyethylene glycol [PEG])
- Immediate allergic reaction of any severity to polysorbate (due to potential cross-reactive hypersensitivity with the vaccine ingredient PEG)
- Monoclonal antibody infusion within the last 90 days
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that COVID-19 vaccines should not be withheld from pregnant individuals who meet criteria for vaccination based on ACIP-recommended priority groups. Pregnant women may wish to discuss vaccination with their provider.
