Are there any side effects?


The expected side effects that people are having to the COVID-19 vaccine most commonly include soreness in your arm, fever, headaches, muscle aches, joint aches, and fatigue.

These are signs that the vaccine is working and should go away in a few days.

Only about 10% (or 1 out of 10) of people who get the vaccine will have these side effects.
