(CNN)California health officials have given providers the all-clear to "immediately" resume administering the Moderna vaccine from a specific lot after pausing earlier this week due to possible allergic reactions.

The state's health department previously said it was aware of fewer than 10 people who received shots from the lot and required medical attention.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we recommended that providers pause the distribution of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine lot 41L20A on Sunday evening.

Moderna said earlier this week 37 different states got shipments from the lot, which included more than 1. 2 million doses, adding that most had likely been used.

Tens of thousands of doses may have already been administered when the state's health officials made their initial announcement, a spokesperson for the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) previously said.

But CDPH said Sunday fewer than 10 people at a San Diego clinic who received the Covid-19 vaccines from the lot required medical attention over the span of 24 hours.

The state said it was not aware of anyone at any of the other 286 sites who had similar allergic reactions after receiving the vaccine from the lot.
