She had no known health problems or pre-existing conditions. An autopsy had been ordered to determine the cause of her death.
Kurill’s death was reported by her father through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) – a national vaccine safety surveillance program run by the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Her case was the latest of four reported deaths related to coronavirus vaccine in Utah. The first three involved elders belonging in the same category as those at most risk of dying from coronavirus.
As of March 3, the CDC has received reports of 97,458 adverse events with 1,381 deaths in people who have taken at least one dose of the approved coronavirus vaccines. (Related: 271 deaths, nearly 10,000 serious adverse reactions from coronavirus vaccines (so far).)

Anaphylactic? What's that? - The Hindu BusinessLine

The government must clear niggling doubts about the Covid vaccine
If you are in the habit of reading labels on food and medicine packs for their ingredients and contra-indications, its possible you’ve been reading-up on Covid-19 vaccines as well.
And there’s one word that crops up often — anaphylaxis. In fact, even if you haven’t run into the word, its good to get acquainted with it, as you are told not to take the Covid-19 vaccine if you have a history of anaphylactic reaction.
Well, how are we to know if we have a history of this reaction? What if this is the first time? Do food allergies qualify? What if a person is allergic to paracetamol and that family of medicine?

Fake vegan meat is dangerous to peanut allergy sufferers: Pea protein could cause fatal anaphylaxis

(Natural News)
Vegan meats could bring adverse health effects, most especially to those who are allergic to pea protein.
Elana Levine, an allergy specialist in Ontario, Canada, witnessed first-hand the effects of the protein extracts from yellow peas that are used to emulate the texture and taste of animal meat in vegan meat products.
It was when Levine had a patient with anaphylaxis that she learned about the allergy-causing properties of yellow peas. At first, she thought that the cause of the allergy was peanuts. But after thorough tests, she found out that the cause of the allergy was pea protein. Her patient had consumed yogurt, not nuts.

Deaths due to anaphylaxis halved despite increase in hospital admissions: Study
Updated: Feb 20, 2021 23:35 IST
London [UK], February 20 (ANI): A research published in the BMJ journal shed light on the death rate from food-induced anaphylaxis that has halved despite a highly increased rate of hospital admissions in the UK due to this life-threatening allergic reaction disease.
Food allergy is the commonest cause of potentially life-threatening allergic reactions, known as anaphylaxis. Substantial increases in hospital admissions due to foodanaphylaxis have been reported globally, but it is unclear whether this trend is continuing, and if it is, whether this has led to an increase in fatal reactions.

Fauci Unmoved by One-Dose COVID Vax Studies

Despite recent media hype over the supposed effectiveness of one dose of the Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines, the FDA and government scientists aren't budging from the two-dose approach, officials said at a press briefing on Friday.
Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, argued that one dose doesn't assure a durable immune response, and thus leaves potential for people with poorer immune responses to become incubators for escape variants.
Commenting largely about an Israeli study published in
The Lancet, which appeared to show that one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine is 85% effective, Fauci called the results "interesting," but added, "we will stick with the scientifically documented efficacy and optimal response of a prime followed by a boost" of mRNA vaccine.

Study reveals new molecular mechanism linked to severe anaphylaxis
Anaphylaxis is a systemic allergic reaction that can affect the skin, the gastrointestinal tract, the respiratory system and the cardiovascular system. The most severe form of anaphylaxis is anaphylactic shock, which features hypotension and can cause death. This reaction can have several causes, such as allergic reactions to food, medicines or insect venom.
The molecular mechanisms that cause the severity of these kinds of reactions is still unknown. In a study led by researchers of the University of Barcelona and IDIBAPS, researchers analyzed the mutation of a gen detected in a patient who suffered from recurrent anaphylactic shocks caused by the allergy to paper wasp venom (

Race may play an important role in children's food allergies

Race may play an important role in children's food allergies
Black children have significantly higher rates of shellfish and fish allergies than White children, in addition to having higher odds of wheat allergy, suggesting that , researchers at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Rush University Medical Center and two other hospitals have found.
Results of the study were published in the February issue of the
Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice.
Food allergy is a common condition in the U.S., and we know from our previous research that there are important differences between Black and White children with food allergy, but there is so much we need to know to be able to help our patients from minority groups. In this current paper, our goal was to understand whether children from different races are allergic to similar foods, or if there is a difference based on their racial background."

Yes, Your Doctor Was a 'Sorority Girl'

Patients often commented on my attire other than my white coat, particularly my impractical footwear, until I finally broke down and purchased Danskos to avoid being called out for my truthful impracticality. It is amazing how patients care more about my orthotics than the reason they scheduled a visit with me -- and God bless them for that.
I am in family medicine, and I thrive on personal and genuine relationships where patients feel comfortable to call me out on my high heels because they want their doctor's back and feet to be OK. In this day, with how overbooked and exhausted both patients and physicians seem to have become, I have found it refreshing that my patients continue to ask how I am doing in this pandemic.

Feds Say More COVID Vax Doses on the Way; Variants Not a Worry (Yet)

email article
WASHINGTON -- Biden administration officials sought to assure the public Wednesday that COVID-19 vaccine shipments will increase soon, and that current vaccines should be able to accommodate most of the variants that have arisen.
"When you're looking at the U.K. variant, what we're seeing is very slight -- if any impact -- on vaccine-induced antibodies and very little impact on anything else, so we're covered with that," Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute on Allergy and Infectious Diseases and President Biden's chief medical advisor, said during an online reporter briefing.
"Things get a bit more problematic ... with what we're seeing on the dominant one in South Africa," he continued. "In that regard, there is a moderate diminution -- namely a multi-fold diminution -- in the

Ventricular Tachycardia: The Cause Is the Key to Management

The heterogeneity in
whether an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), antiarrhythmic drug, or catheter ablation would be appropriate therapies.
In this episode of the AP Cardiology podcast, Andrew Perry, MD, speaks
three cases that illustrate why there is no one-size-fits-all approach to ventricular tachycardia.
A transcript of the podcast follows:
Perry: Hi everyone, Andrew here. For this episode, I have a fantastic educator visiting. Dr. Melissa Robinson is a star faculty at the University of Washington in the electrophysiology section. She focuses on complex ablations. She is the go-to person for complicated patients and does a lot of the ventricular tachycardia ablations. She is well known among her colleagues for being meticulous, methodical, and very attentive to her patients. I spoke with her about ventricular tachycardia over three cases that demonstrate the heterogeneity of this arrhythmia. I learned a lot preparing and discussing these cases, and I think you will too. With that, let's get started.

There's no evidence that people with mild allergies need to avoid COVID-19 vaccines.
Print text only
Severe allergic reactions to COVID-19 vaccines are "exceedingly rare" according to health authorities in the US, where more than 11 million people have now received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
At that point, 1.9 million people had been vaccinated, putting the rate of severe allergic reactions at 11.1 cases per 1 million doses of vaccine used.
Since the report was finalised, at least eight more cases of vaccine-related anaphylaxis have been confirmed in the US, as millions more Americans receive their first COVID-19 jab.
