50 doses of the Moderna vaccine are on hold in Glenn County

In Glenn County, about 50 doses of the Moderna vaccine are on hold right now as the state investigates a series of allergic reactions.

Posted: Jan 20, 2021 9:04 PM

GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - Glenn County Public Health recently received 100 doses of a certain batch of the Moderna vaccine.

Half of those have been administered.

The problem?

It might be linked to a higher rate of allergic reactions.

The state has since recommended that all providers should stop giving out this lot to the community until officials know if it is linked to these reactions.

I spoke with Laura Medina of Glenn County Public Health and she reassured me that all is okay for those who received those vaccines.

She said, “We know that nobody that received that lot number suffered from a severe allergic reaction within the 15 minutes which was the problem that was identified for that lot.”

But are people in the community worried?

Donald Wessels says otherwise.

He commented, “You know, each day after vaccination, including my second vaccination, my risk is lower, and my health is improved. So, it’s been an incredible benefit to all of us and we appreciate that.”

Donald works for the Willows Care Center, a place full of vulnerable residents.

But he’s confident in this distribution.

“We monitor both our staff and we monitor the residents twice a shift, 24-hours a day,” Donald said. “We’ve had no side effects other than a couple of employees that we anticipated with underlying conditions.”

The rest of the 50 doses will be on hold until State and Federal officials approve it.
