this is my first time with the Corona 19 vaccine, I have many questions of course.
I have allergies, and I have some medicines I usually take, but whether I can get a vaccine or have any side effects.
The answer was prepared by medical reporter Cho Dong-chan.
This nursing hospital in Gwangju is in full swing with emergency equipment inspections ahead of the start of vaccination on the 1st of next month.
[Kim Jeong-hoon/Chief of nursing hospital: We are in the state of preparing drugs, emergency kits, oxygen, etc. to cope with the most important anaphylaxis reactions.]
A nursing hospital in Incheon said that there were constant questions about vaccines from patients throughout the day.
[Han Myung-ae/Nursing Hospital Nurse: Someone died after getting a flu shot last year, so I think you're actually worried about whether I'm wrong.] The
case of death in Korea after last year's flu vaccination had no causal relationship with the vaccine.
The same goes for the COVID-19 vaccine.
More than 160 million people have been vaccinated, including 40 million people who have received the AstraZeneca vaccine, but no deaths have yet to be concluded that the vaccine was the cause.
You can get the vaccine even if you are allergic to peanuts, poison ivy, pollen, and antibiotics.
However, if you have suffered from severe allergies such as shortness of breath, systemic hives, or shock, you should not be hit.
Dialysis patients, heart disease, and stroke patients are also recommended to receive the vaccine.
However, if you are in very bad condition, it is better to postpone it after consulting your doctor.
Sore and redness at the injection site, fever, chills, and headaches are common.
It is not an adverse reaction, but a normal reaction by which immunity is formed.
However, if the pain at the injection site becomes severe after a day has passed, or if fever, headache, etc. continue for more than three days, it is recommended to see a doctor.
Fainting immediately after the injection is vagus nerve fainting, which is the cause of the injection needle pain and recovers after sitting for 1 minute.
