The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has released a statement advising individuals with histories of ‘significant’ allergic reactions to avoid taking the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine which is being rolled out in the United Kingdom.
This comes after two members of the National Health Services suffered an allergic reaction after receiving the vaccine, both of which are currently recovering well.
The MHRA’s chief executive officer stated that allergic reactions were not expected from the clinical trials and they are currently advising the relevant fields.
COVID-19 has turned people’s worlds upside down in more ways than one and amongst the first people to feel its effects were people in the arts and entertainment sector. We took some time to listen to what local DJ JJOY had to say after contracting COVID-19.
JJOY shared his COVID-19 experience stated that the virus affected him moderately, stating that he did not feel the effect of isolation as he would be in the same house with his wife and son and conducting business remotely. What he did say is he had slight coughing, fatigue, nausea once he recovered from the virus.
“It has completely changed the life of a DJ,” he said as he noted that mass events were the first to stop and he had to postpone all events, commending the Maltese for their courage and heart of gold.
JJOY went on to appeal for unity in all sectors including business, music and everything else – something which is needed now more than ever.
The DJ urges positivity and courage in our community and stated that we are stronger than the virus, with special regard to the Maltese people.
