Wait with the second dose of vaccine after severe side effects

Everyone who has had covid-19 and experienced severe side effects from the first dose of vaccine will have to wait for the second dose in the Stockholm Region. The reason is that they may not need it.

It is Region Stockholm that advises to wait until further notice with the second dose of the covid-19 vaccine in case you have had severe side effects such as fever and vomiting of the first dose, reports TV4 Nyheterna.

Behind it is above all a desire to avoid further side effects _ and that the immune response seems good already with a syringe, writes Region Stockholm.

– In the cases where you have had side effects in the form of fever and a little more severe reactions such as nausea and vomiting, we think it is good to wait with the second dose, says Region Stockholm’s chief physician Elda Sparrelid to TV4.

The first dose will be like a second for those who have been ill

Vaccine researcher Matti Sällberg at Karolinska University Hospital thinks the Stockholm Region makes a reasonable assessment.

– If you have had an infection then you have had an immune activation, and when you then get your vaccination it becomes like a second dose, he says to TV4.

The Capital Region is the only one that has so far stated that it advises against those who have already had covid-19 and experienced side effects from the first vaccine dose to receive the second. The advice applies to the vaccine from Pfizer-Biontech and Moderna.
