(CNN) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new allergy guidelines for COVID-19 vaccines.
The agency said people with a history of anaphylaxis to other vaccines or injectable medications should consult their doctor about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
Symptoms of anaphylaxis include shortness of breath, a closing of the throat, nausea and dizziness.
Because of possible reactions, the CDC recommends that providers monitor all people for 15 minutes after getting the vaccine.
