After getting a COVID-19 vaccine, you may experience short-term reactions or side effects... The most common side effects are:

  • Pain at the injection site
  • Fever
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Muscle Pain
  • Chills

More people experienced these side effects after the second dose than after the first dose. You can take paracetamol within the hour following the injection to relieve these common side effects.
