Jennifer Aydin recently joined the growing list of Bravolebs who have received the COVID-19 vaccine. The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom got Moderna's version of the vaccination on April 3. A few days later, Jennifer took to Instagram to share her experience and the uncommon side effect she encountered.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

"You guys know that I had my vaccine on Saturday," Jennifer began an Instagram Stories post on April 6. "Sunday, I felt very groggy, and I had a headache. Monday, I woke up with a swollen face, okay — my lips were jacked, and my cheeks were swollen, and there was pain." 

Jennifer shared that she then "frantically" called her plastic surgeon husband, Dr. Bill Aydin, who offered an explanation for the swelling. "He told me it's because of the filler," she revealed. "With Moderna, there have been documented cases on women, who have filler in their face — the filler gets swollen. It's a very rare side effect." 

Jennifer's filler reaction has since improved. She added, "I took some Benadryl so everything is a little bit better today, but still sore. But the good news is I can still make all my crazy faces."
