State shares how to report adverse reactions to vaccine

Published on

The state has released a statement detailing how to report adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine, in light of its continued rollout across the country.

The South African Government took to Twitter on Friday, 28 May 2021, to share the correct procedure for members of the public that have been vaccinated and wish to report adverse reactions. Currently, the state is in phase two of the Sisonke Rollout Programme, which is focused on healthcare workers and the elderly. Healthcare workers were prioritised in the first phase of the programme, but when the state failed to meet its phase one target, it extended it into phase two.

In light of the growing number of vaccinated people in the country, the state has stipulated how to report adverse reactions to the vaccine. The state explained, “The National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) is urging people to report adverse events, as the country’s mass COVID-19 vaccination programme is underway.” Adding, “Meanwhile, a severe allergic reaction, known as anaphylaxis, leads to low blood pressure, collapse, difficulty breathing with/without skin rash.”
