Live updates from COVID-19: the Modern vaccine causes side effects in people with cosmetic facial fillers

According to the FDA advisory committee, people with cosmetic facial fillers may experience swelling and inflammation after receiving the Modern vaccine.

“Your immune system, which causes inflammation, is accelerated when you receive a vaccine, this is how it should work,” said Dr. Shirley Chi, who noted that side effects are easily treated. “So it makes sense for you to see an immune response in certain areas where they see some substance that is not a natural substance in your body.”

She noted that side effects should not stop people from getting the vaccine.

“In these cases, all patients had swelling and inflammation in the area that received the filling … Some patients received cheek filling six months before the vaccine and one patient had a lip filling two days after the vaccine. They were treated with steroids and anti -histamines and all their reactions have been resolved ”.
