State health officials investigating ‘significant medical event’ after shot

LINCOLN, Neb. -- State health officials are investigating what's being called a "significant medical event" in a Nebraskan after they received the Moderna vaccine.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services says the individual is in their late 40s and in the Four Corners Public Health District, which covers Butler, Polk, Seward and York Counties.

The DHHS says the medical event happened a week after the individual received the vaccine. The incident will now be investigated by the CDC and the FDA.

There have been over 405,000 Moderna vaccinations issued in Nebraska.
