Allergic Reactions to the COVID-19 Vaccine
If you received the vaccine and experienced an immediate (within four hours) allergic reaction to your first dose, you should not receive the second dose, even if your reaction was not severe. An allergic reaction is defined as any hypersensitivity such as urticaria, angioedema, respiratory distress (e.g., wheezing, stridor or anaphylaxis).
For other symptoms such as chest pain and flushing, ask your primary care provider and consider skin testing by an allergist if you plan to receive a second dose.
If you have had an immediate reaction to any prior vaccine or medication, ask your primary care provider whether you should receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
