As you may know, the COVID-19 vaccines and boosters were created within a year of COVID-19 being detected. This means that the safety and effectiveness aren’t fully established yet. Therefore, unless all adverse reactions are recorded, it will be difficult for authorities to assemble a thorough, real-world safety and effectiveness profile.
So it is important – even if you do not understand how it might relate to your vaccination or booster – that you record and report unwelcome changes in your health after taking any COVID-19 injection.
What do I report
Please record adverse reactions if you have experienced any new condition that appeared after the injection, regardless of what it could be attributed to such as:
- heart and kidney conditions
- inflammatory conditions
- blood clots
- neurological complications (eg. Bell’s palsy, dizziness)
- heart attack or stroke
- skin rashes
- menstruation disturbance
- cancer and cysts
- miscarriage and stillbirth
- a birth defect of a newborn, if parents were vaccinated before pregnancy, or mother while pregnant
- your existing condition, if your current illness has worsened after injection
- sudden death.
How to report
Please report your own adverse reactions – or help a loved one by reporting theirs for them – to The Health Products Regulatory Authority by:
