The most common side effects following COVID-19 vaccines are fatigue, a fever, headaches, body aches, chills, nausea, diarrhea, and pain at the site of injection, according to the World Health Organization. These may last from a few days to a week and are mostly self limiting. Take medication as prescribed by your doctor and rest. You can keep a clean wet cloth or an icepack on the affected area to reduce pain. Consult your doctor if redness, tenderness, or swelling of the hand worsens. Do not rub the affected area. Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated. Avoid doing strenuous activities for at least 3-4 days after getting the vaccine. It is safer to avoid alcohol and smoking for a few days. Side effects may be different in different individuals. There is no cause for worry. The vaccine does not fully prevent infection by the COVID-19 virus. However it drastically reduces the chances of severe life threatening consequences and death due to COVID-19.

This could happen if the hand shakes when giving the injection, which causes internal swelling in the deltoid muscle (upper arm muscle), you can take regular pain killers for this, the pain & internal swelling will subside in 4 to 5 days. Hope this helps……….. Dr. Rupal Rana Arya (Senior Consultant Physician) Mumbai
