Anxiety related reactions to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine seen in five states

In five states there have been anxiety related reactions to covid vaccines. Some people who have received the COVID-19 vaccination have experienced symptoms one would have in a panic attack, such as dizziness, as a result of their anxiousness.

The symptoms are very similar to any anxiety attack, but triggered by being injected—those who are spooked by injections may panic and faint as seen in those few states. “We knew we were going to see this,” said Canadian researcher, Dr. Noni MacDonald. As you may have seen there has been skepticism about getting vaccinated, even before the pandemic there was a distrust in vaccinations among many people wary of what they’re being injected with.

There are also those who are deathly terrified of needles, victims of trypophobia. Fortunately for these people, according to the CDC, people that are nervous or afraid of shots may find the J&J’s vaccine more appealing, as it only requires a single dose. For those who know they are nervous about getting shots, receiving the vaccine may cause few, temporary symptoms as mentioned before (nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tachycardia, fainting, etc.).

Although, officials are worried that these stories may make people afraid to get the vaccine. According to Dalhousie University, 10-15% of adults are afraid of getting shots. “Everybody thinks this is (only) young teenage girls” that have these reactions, MacDonald said, assuring that is not the case.
