Safety & Side Effects
Tell your vaccination provider if you have any medical conditions, including:
- any allergies
- a fever
- a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinner
- immunocompromised or are on a medicine that affects your immune system
- are pregnant or plan to become pregnant
- have received another COVID-19 vaccine
Side effects that have been reported after COVID-19 vaccination include:
- Injection site reactions: pain, tenderness and swelling of the lymph nodes in the same arm of the injection, swelling (hardness), and redness
- General side effects: fatigue, feeling unwell, headache, muscle pain, joint pain, chills, nausea and vomiting, and fever
There is a remote chance the COVID-19 vaccines could cause a severe allergic reaction. A severe allergic reaction would usually occur within a few minutes to four hours after getting a dose of either COVID-19 Vaccine. For this reason, your vaccination provider may ask you to stay at the place where you received your vaccine for monitoring after vaccination. Signs of a severe allergic reaction can include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Swelling of your face and throat
- A fast heartbeat
- A bad rash all over your body
- Dizziness and weakness
These may not be all the possible side effects of COVID-19 vaccines. Serious and unexpected side effects may occur. The COVID-19 vaccines are still being studied in clinical trials.
V-Safe: Post Vaccine Check-In
V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
At the vaccination clinic, you will receive information on how to register for V-Safe. To learn more about this program, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/vsafe.html
