Vaccines are intended to provide immunity without the risk of contracting the disease. Not everyone gets them, but mild-to-moderate side effects are common and usually go away on their own after a few days.
Following immunization, you may experience the following mild-to-moderate adverse effects:
- Soreness in the arm where the injection was given
- Fever (mild)
- Aches in the muscles or joints
Rest, staying hydrated, and taking pain and fever medication, if necessary, will help you manage any adverse effects.
If any symptoms persist for more than a few days, seek guidance from your healthcare professional. Serious adverse effects are extremely uncommon, but if you do have one, you should contact your healthcare practitioner right once.
