Yes, it's possible. People often have allergic reactions to drugs. My mother is allergic to almost all normal geriatric medicines and has to carry a list of over 100 medications that's been found to cause massive discomfort or possible death to her.

Even normal flu shots have caused many deaths every year but it doesn't stop people from taking the gamble to get them.
