Since December 2020, the American Academy of Dermatology and the International League of Dermatologic Societies' COVID-19 Dermatology Registry has tracked dermatologic reactions post-COVID-19 vaccination. Within months, a variety of cutaneous manifestations were reported after the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines.(1) As of April 2021, a total of 672 possible vaccine-related skin reactions have been reported by healthcare providers. Here, we evaluate the first 40 cases of varicella zoster virus (VZV) and herpes simplex virus (HSV) reported in the registry after COVID-19 vaccination with either the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines.
