Moderna vaccine - questionable batch in Cal

The California state epidemiologist has recommended that the state pause the distribution of more than 330,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine after a “higher than usual” number of people showed signs of a possible severe allergic reaction.

The recommendation comes at a dire moment in California, which is experiencing one of the most acute outbreaks in the nation. About 40,000 people are testing positive each day — the equivalent of the daily caseload for the entire United States as recently as September — and California’s hospital beds are filling up. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/18/us/covid-coronavirus-california-moderna-vaccines.html Local papers say just under 10 severe reactions in one location.

6. pause for how long?

yes the maxim is "do no harm" -- but on the other side of the scale is the 3-4000 people dying every day in the U.S. That doesn't stop while we scratch our heads and "re-evaluate." And we're already sputtering along with a semi-flawed rollout to start out with.

(don't claim to have the answers -- and would not want to have the job ...)

Edit:
the "pause" is suggested for a single batch, representing less than 10% of the states "allotment" (of 3.5 million doses) The state population is close to 40 million.
