Yes, You Should Still Get the COVID-19 Vaccine Even if You Have Fillers

recent report issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the safety and efficacy of the Moderna vaccine for COVID-19 has been raising eyebrows: two recipients of the vaccine, all of whom had cosmetic facial fillers to help supplement a loss of volume in the face, experienced an adverse reaction.

In those vaccine recipients, localized swelling occurred at the filler injection site. The revelation of this reaction led to a flurry of headlines (and panic amongst my friends); however, board-certified plastic surgeon, Robert Morin, MD, offers assurance that there is no cause for alarm. In fact, he says, you should still plan to get the vaccine if you are among the approximately 2.7 million Americans with cosmetic fillers.
