Covid vaccine: Nine most common side effects that could affect your daily living after vaccination, according to CDC

Published on

Whether you’re in the queue to get your COVID-19 vaccine shots, or already vaccinated or are resisting getting vaccinated, you might be thinking or worried about the most common side effects that might disturb your daily living.

Luckily, the CDC, with the help of their V-safe program, asked thousands of people who have already received the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines about what adverse effects were the most prominent.

It is perfectly normal to get some side effects following vaccination – it signals that your body is building protection against COVID-19.

Recipients reported the following:

  • Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Myalgia
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Swelling
  • Joint pain
  • Nausea.

“These side effects may affect daily activities,” explains the CDC.

They also may make you feel like you have the flu, but they should go away in a few days, notes the CDC.

According to the health body, you can alleviate side effects if they cause you discomfort.

“If you have pain or discomfort from fever, talk to your healthcare provider about taking an over-the-counter medicine, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen,” it advises.

“Use or exercise your arm and apply a clean, cool, wet washcloth over the area to reduce the pain and discomfort where you got the shot.”

The problem can also happen in people who have not been vaccinated, however, and it’s not yet clear why it affects some people.

What’s more, the risks posed by not getting vaccinated far outweigh the risks of experiencing rare events following vaccination.

The COVID-19 vaccine can help stop you from getting seriously ill or dying from COVID-19.
