Delayed Large Local Reactions to mRNA-1273 Vaccine against SARS-CoV-2

Table 1, variables for the 12 patients


I read this article in the news a week ago, and noticed that some of these rashes people got after getting the Covid vaccine looked just like Lyme rashes.

Patient 3 has a bullseye rash!


What's going on here?

Crazy idea, but what if these folks have Lyme disease and the body's reaction to the vaccine is weakening the immune system such that the Lyme rash is coming out again? Just musing outloud about it.

Probably just a covid vaccine rash. Especially since vaccine recipients say it goes away within a few days and leaves no lasting symptoms.

Not every rash is Lyme.

Just my opinion.

Plenty of vaccines give rashes. It's just an immune, hypersensitivity rash, possibly due to allergy. Nothing worrisome.
