What kind of COVID-19 vaccine did you get? If you are allergic to one COVID-19 vaccine with anaphylactic reactions, then you should not get this vaccine. To the best of my knowledge, there are 3 types of covid-19 vaccines available in the USA. if you are allergic to one, you can choose the other.

Patients with immune diseases are not suitable for vaccination, and you made the right decision. Because vaccines can cause an overactive immune response that worsens the disease.
