What side effects could there be from the vaccine?

Some side effects, such as redness, swelling or pain at the injection site, low grade fever,fatigue, headache, chills, muscle or joint pain, can occur following COVID-19 vaccination and are normal signs that your body is building protection.

Post-vaccination symptoms are usually mild to moderate in severity and occur within the first three days of vaccination and resolve within one to two days of onset. Symptoms are often more frequent and severe following the second dose and more common among younger persons compared to those 55 years and older.

Information about specific side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine will be available as the FDA begins its EUA review process of manufacturer safety data from clinical trials
