An allergic reaction to the Koviti-19 tui puipui is known as anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a severe life-threatening allergic reaction that rarely occurs after vaccination but does still happen. The symptoms usually progress quickly and can include shortness of breath, chest pain, feeling faint, swelling, and loss of consciousness.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), all people who get a COVID-19 vaccine should be monitored on site. People who have had severe allergic reactions or who have had any type of immediate allergic reaction to a vaccine or injectable therapy should be monitored for at least 30 minutes after getting the vaccine. All other people should be monitored for at least 15 minutes after getting the vaccine.
