LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — An allergic reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine led to one Arkansas woman being intubated for seven days.
According to the CDC, just two to five people per million vaccinated in the U.S. experience anaphylaxis.
Kendall Case, 23, was determined to be fully vaccinated despite having an allergic reaction to the first dose of the Moderna vaccine. She followed the CDC’s guidelines that recommend taking the Johnson & Johnson shot after a reaction.
While she said it was a frightening experience, she’s still an advocate for the vaccine.
“[I had a] rash that developed on my chest. Over the next two hours of being in the E.R., it then started going down my shoulders and then all the way down my back,” said Case.
Case received the Moderna vaccine back in March but two hours post-injection she had a reaction.
