Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville has temporarily paused coronavirus vaccinations after four of its employees reported feeling adverse reactions.

The four employees experienced “tingling and elevated heart rate” after getting their vaccinations, Advocate Aurora Health said in a statement. Three of them are doing well at home, while the other is receiving additional treatment.

The four employees who reacted negatively to the vaccine make up fewer than .15% of the roughly 3,000 employees who have received vaccinations so far, the health center said. Advocate said it is pausing the vaccinations at the Libertyville medical center “out of an abundance of caution.”

Vaccinations will continue as planned at Advocate’s eight other Illinois locations, as well as the three locations in Wisconsin, the health center said, noting that “reactions are an expected side effect of vaccination.”

As of Friday, about 17,000 health care workers across the state had been vaccinated, with a total of about 109,000 expected to receive shots through the weekend.
