What to expect from COVID-19 vaccine side effects

LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Those who have already gotten a coronavirus vaccine have either described it as a walk in the park or that it left them feeling like they had the flu.

If you haven’t gotten your shot, there are some side effects you should prepare for — just in case.

Some of the most common side effects people experience are redness and soreness at the injection site, some muscle or joint pain, a low-grade fever, and tiredness.

One in four people who got the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine reported having side effects during their trials. About 57 percent of patients 64 and younger experienced side effects during Moderna’s trials. That number increased to 82 percent after the second dose.

Having side effects means your immune system is working to protect you from COVID-19. However, don’t be worried if you don’t have side effects. Medical experts said that is ok.

“Some people have no symptoms at all and other people may have more significant symptoms that may kind of keep them down for a day or two,” Robert Hawkes, Director for Florida Gulf Coast University’s Physician Assistant Program, said.

Professor Hawkes said that if you do have symptoms, they should only last a few days and that it’s ok to take a pain reliever.
