COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there any side effects of Covid-19 vaccine?
COVID 19 vaccinations are safe and most of the reported side effects following vaccination are mild and may indicate signs that your body is building protection. The most common side effects related to vaccination include redness, pain or swelling at the site of vaccination or generalised symptoms like tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever or nausea. Most of these side effects subside within a day or two. Though initially there were reports of sudden cardiac death following clot formation in a particular manufacturer of vaccine, most of the currently available vaccines are proven to be safe and are not associated with serious immediate or long term side effects.
