In California, the state epidemiologist says it should pause administering a Moderna's vaccine following allergic reactions.

Erica Pan said a higher than usual number of allergic reactions were reported from people who received the Moderna vaccine at a community vaccination clinic.

She said less than 10 people required medical attention, but she is still recommending a pause on using the vaccine until there's an investigation.
