Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is being considered as a game-changer as it requires only one shot – rather than two like others.

Here are the Johnson and Johnson Covid vaccine side effects

Around 55 percent of people vaccinated with this vaccine developed systemic side effects.

The most commonly recorded side effects of J&J vaccine are headaches, fatigue, and muscle pain.

Some people also experienced less common symptoms like nausea and fever for one or two days.

Typically, the side effects of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are similar to those who had one of the mRNA (Moderna) vaccines.

Although, a 74-year-old man was hospitalized with a severe body rash triggered by the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

How Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine is different from Moderna and Pfizer shots?

Katelyn Jetelina, Phd an assistant professor at University of Texas Health School of Public Health in Dallas, said the side effects are easier to compare to the efficacy of each vaccine brand.

“Because the clinical trials were large and randomized,” she told Healthline.

“We are confident that these side effects aren’t due to individual variation, but rather closer to the ‘true’ experience for vaccinated adults.”

However, “in the clinical trials [for the J&J vaccine], fewer people reported side effects, relative to Pfizer or Moderna, especially if we compare J&J to the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna,” Jetelina said.
