Is there a risk of side-effects?

PUBLISHED 21 June 2021
Vaccine Q&A,

Like any vaccine, COVID-19 vaccines can cause side effects, although many people do not experience them.

The vast majority of side-effects are mild and short-lived. They can include pain where you received the injection, tiredness, fever, chills, nausea or a headache.

Severe events after vaccination are extremely rare. If side effects worsen or don’t go away after a few days, contact your healthcare provider.

COVID-19 vaccines are proven to significantly reduce the risk of severe illness and death from the virus.
