Allergic reactions to vaccines are well known, with severe anaphylaxis to vaccines reported to occur in 1 in 1 million people. The rapid roll-out of new COVID19 vaccines of different types has seen an increased burden and awareness of vaccine-associated allergy and anaphylaxis. This webinar provides a background context to vaccine-induced allergy, known offending agents, clinical presentations, and how to manage COVID19 vaccination in patients with prior allergies, including previous vaccines.
