Side effects

What are the side effects?
Like all medicines, vaccines can cause side effects. Most of these are mild and short term, and not everyone gets them. Even if you do have symptoms after the first dose, you still need to have the second dose.

Although you may get some protection from the first dose, having the second dose will give you the best protection against the virus.

Very common side effects include:

  • having a painful, heavy feeling and tenderness in the arm where you had your injection. This tends to be worst around 1-2 days after the vaccine.
  • feeling tired
  • headache
  • general aches, or mild flu-like symptoms

Although feeling feverish is not uncommon for two to three days, a high temperature is unusual and may indicate you have COVID-19 or another infection.

If you have any bleeding disorders or are on any anticoagulants please let the team know at the time of booking and on arrival to the centre. You may need some additional pressure on the site where you have had the vaccine.

An uncommon side effect is swelling of the glands. You can rest and take the normal dose of paracetamol (follow the advice in the packaging) to help make you feel better.

These symptoms normally last less than a week. If your symptoms seem to get worse or if you are concerned, contact the Surgery. If you do seek advice from a doctor or nurse, make sure you tell them about your vaccination so that they can assess you properly.

A severe allergic reaction is possible but exceptionally unlikely to happen. For this reason the government have said that, at present, all patients receiving the vaccine should remain in the centre for 15minutes after it is administered. We have arranged for a socially distanced area for this.

You can also report suspected side effects of vaccines and medicines through the Yellow Card scheme. You can do this online by visiting the Coronavirus Yellow Card or by downloading the Yellow Card app.
