No severe, unintended or even life-threatening side effects were observed during the clinical trials held worldwide for all Covid vaccines. After getting vaccinated, there may be a feeling of heat, swelling or pressure pain at the injection site. Reactions at the injection site are relatively common and occur in 8 out of 10 persons. This side effect may be inconvenient, but it is completely harmless and will disappear after a few days. However, if side effects persist or if you experience new side effects (such as dizziness, persistent headaches, blurred vision, shortness of breath, arm or leg pain, etc.) you should seek immediate medical attention for symptoms of thromboembolic events. The vaccine may be associated with undesired side effects such as very rare cases of blood clots but this does not affect the authorisation for use by EMA (European Medicines Agency) as the benefits of the vaccine in combating the threat of Covid-19 outweigh the risk of side effects. In any case, we advise you to monitor your health status after your vaccine.
