The coronavirus vaccine, like all other vaccines, could cause side effects. A swollen arm, tiredness, fever, and a headache are among the most commonly known side effects.
But, according to doctors and research experts, there is a small number of young adults who have reported heart problems following mRNA COVID-19 vaccination (Pfizer Moderna).
While speaking to NBC10 Philadelphia Dr. Arnold Baskies, chair of the global control advisory council said:
- FDA forces Johnson & Johnson to scrap 60 million doses of its COVID vaccine

According to Dr. Baskies, myocarditis is an unusual side effect but the condition “gets better in the vast majority of people.
The doctor further added:
A spokesperson for CDC pointed out that:
The agency also recommended clinicians look for symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath and palpitation, and to consider myocarditis as a cause, while also ruling out other causes behind heart inflammation.
Most side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine are mild and shouldn’t last longer than a week. Other side effects may include:
- a sore arm where the needle went in
- feeling tired
- a headache
