Advocate Aurora Health, a health care system in Wisconsin and Illinois, said Friday that it paused COVID-19 vaccinations after health care workers “experienced reactions” from the Pfizer shot. Four team members at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Illinois, experienced “tingling and elevated heart rate,” according to a press release. The center’s vaccination program is temporarily paused as experts investigate.”These four team members represent fewer than 0.15% of the approximately 3,000 who have so far received vaccinations across Advocate Aurora Health. At this time, we can share three team members are home and doing well, and one is receiving additional treatment,” Advocate Aurora Health said in a statement. They explained that reactions are an expected side effect of vaccination, and they still encourage others to get vaccinated to put an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
