The coronavirus vaccine side-effect was mild, according to a 32-year female doctor who developed an allergic reaction yesterday after she was administered the Pfizer/ BioNTech vaccine in a Greek hospital.
The doctor, who is an oncologist, was vaccinated on Monday at Attikon Hospital in Athens.
The news of her allergic reaction caused alarm yesterday, as she was the first person to have reported an allergic reaction to the vaccination in Greece.
So far, 471 people have been inoculated with the Pfizer/ BioNTech vaccine against Covid-19 in Greece.
The doctor, speaking anonymously to MEGA Channel, said she developed tachycardia after the vaccination and was given antihistamines.
She added, however, that she has no history of allergies.

Nothing to worry about

“There are many allergic reactions to many other medicines. Unfortunately, it happened to to me,” the oncologist said.
She added that she feels “depressed and tired,” because of the antihistamines she had to take. “These bring drowsiness; it is not something unexpected.”
After the allergic reaction, the doctor spent the night in the hospital for precautionary reasons.
“I did not have a history of allergies so I was not scared. People should know that it was just a mild allergic reaction,” she remarked as she returned to work on Tuesday.

Hundreds of thousands of doses

Greece received 83,800 doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine on Tuesday and more deliveries are expected every week.
Authorities say that 419,250 doses will be delivered to the country by the end of January and another 333,450 doses will arrive by the end of February.
By the end of March, Greece will have received 1,255,800 doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
Greece will also receive hundreds of thousands of doses from the pharmaceutical firms Moderna and AstraZeneca as soon as their vaccines are approved by EU authorities.

Side Effects from Coronavirus Vaccine

Covid-19 vaccines can cause a slight fever, headache, fatigue, a sore arm or chills, especially after the second dose. Other, more severe reactions, are extremely rare, scientists say.
The documentation provided by Pfizer and Moderna to the Food and Drug Administration notes that both vaccines have side effects — minor ones that fade after roughly two days,  occurring in substantial percentages of people who received them in the trials — and few serious reactions have been reported.
Commonly reported side effects of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine include fatigue, headache, and muscle pain.
Fatigue has been reported by roughly 63 percent of research subjects who received the vaccine, while headache and muscle pain have affected about 55 and 38 percent of participants, respectively. In most cases, those symptoms have been mild and resolved within a day or so.
Smaller numbers of participants reported chills, joint pain, or fever following vaccination.
Participants were more likely to report such symptoms following the second dose of the vaccine.
