A 49-year-old man arrived at a Jerusalem emergency medical center one hour after he was given a COVID-19 vaccination on Monday by his health care provider, with a severe anaphylactic shock.

The man told the medical staff present he has had allergic reactions to penicillin, yet he doesn’t have any other illness. His condition has since been stabilized.

Ynet noted that in other cases where individuals had anaphylactic shocks in reaction to the vaccine, they have emerged unscathed once treated. This man was the first in Israel to have such a reaction.

On Thursday, a Boston doctor had a severe allergic reaction to the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine — he has a shellfish allergy.
