PMID: 36119253.


Although vaccination with vector-based or mRNA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccines is usually well tolerated, they are not free of side effects. Some of these side effects can be severe and concern the primary care physician, otorhinolaryngologist, and the neurologist. Persisting, unilateral tinnitus time-linked to the first dose and worsening after the second dose of an mRNA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccine has not been reported.
