Regarding Covid 19 Vaccination

My wife had an allergic reaction to the medicine 'ponstan' 30 years ago when she was a teenager.  She had rashes, very swollen eyes and lips, and felt general discomfort after taking one dose of ponstan for high fever.  The swelling and rashes subsided within a day without seeing a doctor.  Is this considered a serious drug allergy reaction and can she take the covid -19 vaccination? Thanks.
