Default Severe anxiety with COVID vaccine

Is anyone else having severe anxiety about the COVID Vaccine? I donít feel comfortable taking it but donít feel comfortable not taking it as I have had COVID and it was horrible. I am worried about the side effects and dying from taking the vaccine. But then also worried about dying from COVID. I donít feel comfortable doing things this summer being unvaccinated. Its a tough spot to be in.

I was concerned about the side effects but I figured it was worth it not to get Covid and be able to resume my life. The first shot was more physical side effects that lasted 24 hours. But I got a very scary psychiatric reaction to the second one that lasted several days.

But now I can eat out and I still wear my mask but I feel a lot safer with the vaccine even though the side effects were bad.

If you feel comfortable sharing, what was the psychiatric reaction you had to the second shot?

I had bad anxiety and depression and a bit of paranoia and I was also having a reaction to the ceiling fans. The spinning was getting to me. Also when Iíd drink cold water I felt like it was contaminated because I could feel a shock like feeling in my brain when I drank it. But I called my doctor and he said it was just a normal reaction.
