Allergic reactions to vaccines are possible based on previous allergy.
In addition, patients may ask about their suitability for vaccination based on religious or other dietary requirements or beliefs.
We’ve created a series of articles to help you advise patients when they need advice on individual vaccine suitability.
Prior allergy to COVID-19 Vaccine
Where patients have had an allergic reaction to the first dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, options for the second dose will vary dependent on the nature of the initial reaction.
Our decision tool below guides you through these options. It is derived from Public Health England’s Immunisation Against Infectious Disease (The Green Book): Flowchart for managing patients who have allergic reactions to the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
