Is it an Allergic Reaction or Vaccine Side Effect?
In the U.S., COVID-19 vaccine campaigns have picked up steam, with more than 2.7 million shots being administered daily. But along with feelings of relief and a new sense of freedom, some people are also experiencing vaccine side effects, and rarely, severe allergic reactions. [allergicliving.com]
When Are Vaccine Responses Symptoms v. Allergic Reactions?
While anaphylaxis is rare with the COVID-19 vaccines, other types of reactions can occur.
In this report, Allergic Living helps us to understand the differences in side effects, allergy symptoms, and non-allergy-based responses to the vaccines as well as what might trigger them.
It also covers what to expect with the second dose.
CDC Recommendations to Keep You Safe
The CDC recommends people with a history of any anaphylaxis be monitored for 30 minutes after their vaccine. It also recommends all vaccination sites have epinephrine available. To be sure, if you have allergies, bring your epinephrine auto-injectors. Be sure to let the health care professionals administering the vaccine and those there to treat allergic reactions know that you have a history of anaphylaxis.
