However, there are some rare but serious complications that can occur after receiving a Covid-19 vaccine. These include anaphylaxis, which is a severe allergic reaction that can cause difficulty breathing, hives, and swelling of the face and throat. Other rare but serious complications include Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which is a disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks the nerves, and thrombocytopenia, which is a decrease in platelets in the blood.
It’s important to remember that the risk of these rare but serious complications is much lower than the risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19. Vaccines are the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the virus. It’s also important to talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about the vaccine.
