Doctors say it is normal to experience side effects from the Covid vaccine and that people shouldn’t be concerned.
Side effects of the shocks currently administered in Great Britain are “very common” according to official information.
These can include fatigue, pain, and flu-like symptoms, but doctors have said they are usually not to be worried about.
Prof. Martin Marshall from the Royal College of GPs, said the Huffington Post : “As with most vaccinations, some patients experience minor side effects.
“If necessary, we recommend that patients treat these with pain relievers such as paracetamol.”
More than a third of people who get their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine report some side effects, new data suggests.
Most of the side effects were mild and included pain or swelling at the injection site.
The data suggests that people who previously had Covid-19 are almost twice as likely to experience one or more mild (systemic) whole-body side effects than people who did not get the virus from a Pfizer / 33% vs 19% had BioNTech vaccine dose.
According to the latest data from the Zoe Covid Symptom Study app, fatigue (9%), headache (8%), and chills (4%) were the most common mild (systemic) side effects affecting the entire body.
Most of the mild (systemic) total body side effects occurred in the first two days after vaccination, and only 3% of people experience after-effects after three days.
The numbers, based on a subsample of nearly 40,000 vaccine doses, suggest that 37% of people experienced some local side effects after the first dose and 45% after the second dose.
While 14% of people reported at least one whole body side effect within seven days of the first dose compared with 22% after the second dose, which may indicate a stronger immune response after the second dose.
The data found that 13% of the vaccinated men and 19% of the vaccinated women reported at least one systemic side effect within seven days.
Whole-body side effects were more common among 55-year-olds than 55-year-olds (21% versus 14%).
Covid-19 vaccines use a harmless version or component of the coronavirus to train the immune system. When the virus is encountered, the body can fight it off.
This reaction can feel like some of the symptoms when the body is fighting off a real infection, including headache, fever, chills or chills, tiredness (tiredness), muscle or joint pain, diarrhea, and feeling sick (nausea).
Experts say a stronger response may indicate an increased immune response.
This current data is for the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine and most of the data analyzed was health care workers.
Tim Spector, lead researcher on the study and professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London, said, “This dataset is a unique look at those who have been vaccinated in the real world outside of studies and at past post-vaccination effects are mild and in the minority of people.
“It is interesting to see that these mild after-effects occur more often in people with previous Covid than in naive subjects.
“This could be good news as a bigger response like this suggests those who get a first dose after Covid will have a stronger immune response and possibly better protection from just a single vaccination.”
According to official guidelines from the UK government, “like all drugs”, the vaccines can cause side effects.
It is said that most of these are “mild, short-term and not everyone gets them” and that even if you have symptoms after the first dose, you will still need the second dose.
The “very common” side effects are:
– A painful, heavy feeling and tenderness and tenderness in the arm that you received the injection, which tends to be worse about a day or two after the vaccination.
– General pain or mild flu-like symptoms
Although a fever is not uncommon for up to three days, a high temperature is unusual and can mean you have Covid or another infection.
A rare side effect is swelling of the glands.
To recover from the mild symptoms, you should rest and take a normal dose of acetaminophen.
People should be able to resume normal activities when they are feeling good. However, if the arm is particularly sore, it can be difficult to perform heavy lifting.
Anyone who feels uncomfortable or very tired should rest and avoid operating or driving machines, the council says.
Symptoms are usually supposed to last less than a week, but if they get worse or you are concerned, call the NHS at 111.
