This video covers everything that I considered when planning to get my vaccine and dealing with salicylate sensitivity with anaphylactic reactions. Includes the steps I took to mitigate risk, or improve my chances of survival if I did have a reaction. I also cover research articles showing that the chance of anaphylaxis in one early study was very low (.001%), as well as another one that was very low in highly-allergenic people.
