Mild to moderate side effects are a sign, and a good one, suggesting that a person is building immunity in the body to protect it against the coronavirus.

Side effects, after the first jab include, low-grade fever or muscle aches.

What are the common side effects?

Regardless of which vaccine you choose, common after effects include pain at the injection site, fever, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, nausea and diarrhoea.

As per WHO, after a person gets his/her first jab they must be instructed by the healthcare worker to stay at the vaccination center for 15-30 minutes to monitor for any adverse reactions.

According to the US-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, those experiencing side effects can take over-the-counter medications, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, aspirin, or antihistamines, for any pain and discomfort you may experience after getting vaccinated.
