Dear Editor,

We would like to thank Mungmunpuntipantip and Wiwanitkit for the interest their letter1 showed in our article.2

We should clarify that, in that article, we did not mention eye symptoms as side effects of SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, nor did we cite autoimmunity as a possible cause.

We merely reported a case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome seen in our department and put forward SARS-CoV-2 vaccine-induced immunomodulation as what might have caused it. We also mentioned the low likelihood of developing this disease, or Bell's palsy or herpes zoster, after being vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 or other viruses. Therefore, ultimately, we would like to stress the importance of global vaccination against COVID-19 at this time.
