Vaccination is the best strategy for the development of herd immunity and for the control of the SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) pandemic. As the number of immunizations across the globe reaches a record number, random cases of diverse adverse effects of the vaccines are being documented. We report a case of renal biopsy–proven myoglobin-induced acute tubular injury requiring dialytic support post-CovishieldTM vaccination. Awareness of this rare complication is necessary so that it can be recognized early, and renal injury avoided.
