(CNN) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new allergy guidelines for COVID-19 vaccines.
The recommendations were published on the CDC’s website Saturday.
The CDC suggests that people who have ever had a severe allergic reaction, known as anaphylaxis, to any ingredient in a COVID-19 vaccine should not get that specific vaccine.
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.
