Every medicine has side effect. No need to take for life time without any problem.

Yes you can continue with B12 supplements for life since firstly you are a vegetarian with v little source of this vitamin and secondly many people may not be able to absorb well from the diet even if it’s there in the diet. There’s no harm in doing so.
