What to know about the COVID-19 vaccine if you have allergies

Published December 15, 2020


Bustle featured John Sellick in an article about what people with allergies can expect in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. The data shows people with mild allergies will most likely be completely fine. "Many people will hear 'don’t get this vaccine if you have allergies', rather than the warning for severe allergies only," says Sellick. "We don’t want to discourage people who are at risk of severe disease or bad outcomes from getting these vaccines."
