Hopefully this will help calm your fears a bit. I, too, had an allergic reaction to oxi after the first does....and nothing from my first COVID shot other than a slight headache and lightheadedness. I am also allergic to some darn many drugs.....some give me a horrible rash but most give me hives and I can have issues breathing.....and I was really nervous about the COVID vaccine. Tell the person who is giving you the vaccine that you have had previous allergic reactions to drugs and they will inform the person that is in the next room with you for that extra 15 minutes. Likely they will keep you longer. My PCP was adamant that I had to remain with them for at least 30 minutes....and I'm glad she said something because it calmed my fears a TON just knowing that they were keeping an eye on me.
You'll almost certainly do well. I'm up for my next shot in 12 days and am nervous about this one as well.....only because I have heard that the second shots usually give one more side effects (not allergic reactions). However, I'll take a day or two of unpleasant side effects like a fever, chills, muscle aches, etc. as opposed to a stay in the hospital with COVID. My getting vaccinated may not make a huge difference to some people but its one teeny step to helping us ALL get back to normal sooner rather than later.
