Coronavirus: Progress in Vaccines and Drugs

The race for the corona vaccine is entering the home straight. Now it is the first approval in Europe, further procedures are ongoing, Russia and China are already vaccinating parts of their population.

USA and England are already vaccinating. Vaccinated people report fever and headache. Experts reassure: Such side effects are harmless. But there can also be dangerous allergic reactions. In the US there are now six cases of severe allergic reactions after vaccination with an RNA vaccine. A total of 272,000 people have already been vaccinated there. The background could be polyethylene glycols (PEG), which are used as a shell for the vaccine RNA. The manufacturers and the US authorities have announced rapid investigations into the cases.
