The details are fuzzy right now; we need more information to really figure out what happened.  My understanding is that it was 2 people of 40,000 and symptoms were the following day, which would be even more rare to be that delayed, so it may not be entirely related to the vaccine.  A UK health agency has recommended anyone required to carry an epinephrine autoinjector not accept the vaccine until more is known about what happened.  Though in all honesty, 2 out of 40,000 is very low.  Allergies are more prevalent than that, so I'm sure there were hundreds, if not thousands, of people with anaphylactic allergies that had the vaccine and were fine.

Again, we need to know more and follow the advice from our local health authorities and personal allergist.
I don't know what I'm allergic to anymore... the list keeps growing.
