Side effects of Covid-19 vaccineDate: 15 June 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
People taking Covid-19 vaccine will experience temporary side-effects such as fever, headache and fatigue among others.
Vaccines usually elicit immune response in people. But, sometimes they also generate side-effects.
The first stage of immune response will be taking place as soon as body detects a foreign substance. This involves moving white blood cells to the spot.
The movement of white blood cells cause inflammatory response, which can cause fatigue, chills and soreness.
The response generated by the body is usually weaker in older people. This causes lower reactions in older population than younger ones.
Vaccine response can sometimes cause selling in lymph node present under the arms. This can be mistaken for cancer by women.
Other major side-effects include blood clots, which were observed in a small population of people who were given AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
There are also issues of serious allergic reactions to vaccines. To prevent this, individuals are made to wait 15min post their jab.
