Literature review of neurological side effects of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. They include headache, GuillainBarre syndrome (GBS), venous sinus thrombosis (VST), transverse myelitis, facial nerve palsy, small fiber neuropathy, newly developing multiple sclerosis. By far the most frequent of the neurological adverse reactions to SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations is headache, followed
by GBS, VST, and myelitis (Table 1). Neurological side effects develop after any of the commercially available anti-COVID-19 vaccines but myelitis predominantly after application of the AstraZeneca vaccine (AZV).
