Two health care workers at Providence Health Alaska suffered adverse reactions to a Covid-19 vaccine late last week, Mikal Canfield, a spokesman for Providence Alaska, told CNN on Saturday night.
Five adverse reactions to the vaccine have now been reported in Alaska. Last week, three health care workers in the state had allergic reactions after receiving doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, CNN previously reported.
Providence Alaska is not releasing the location where the two health care workers are employed, but the network has locations in Anchorage, Valdez, Seward and Kodiak, according to Canfield.
The health care workers who received the vaccine are "frontline caregivers involved directly with patient care," Canfield said.
They suffered mild and non-life-threatening reactions but have not consented to additional information on their conditions being released, Canfield said.
Canfield told CNN Providence Alaska has reported the adverse reactions to the state health department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
CNN also reported Saturday that an Illinois hospital paused its Covid-19 vaccinations after four workers experienced reactions.
CNN has reached out to the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, as well as Pfizer, for comment.
