Life Threatening? No
Write-up: During the second vaccination I was on my period. After 3 hours of getting the vaccine I started having large emotional spells. It made me start to have suicidal thoughts, a panic attack every other hour and overall get overwhelmed very quickly. The suicidal thoughts specifically started 6 hours after the vaccine and lasted through the whole night and day after receiving the vaccine. Thankfully I was able to reach out to other people in my support system, but I was not expecting to feel that way and get those thoughts and feelings right after receiving the shot. I think that there should be more research done with females who are on their periods when getting the shot because I cannot be the only one who was affected by that factor.
