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.
Prof Jonathan Peter is Head of The Allergy and Immunology Unit, as well as being Head of the Division of Allergology and Clinical Immunology in the Department of Medicine at the University of Cape Town.
In this informative webinar, he explores vaccine-induced allergic reactions, which are not uncommon, but explains that severe life-threatening anaphylaxis is very rare.
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.
It is important to differentiate true allergy from other reactions (including immune) to the vaccine.
