Managing Side Effects
The COVID-19 vaccine is safe. Some side effects are normal signs the vaccine is working.
Learners will be observed for at least 15 to 30 minutes after they are vaccinated so that professional health workers can help if they develop an allergic reaction.
Some common side effects are:
- Pain, redness, or swelling on the arm
- Muscle pain, chills, or fever
Note: Some children will have no side effects OR allergic reactions. If YOU experiences a severe allergic reaction after getting a COVID-19 vaccine, seek immediate medical care!
Adherence to COVID-19 Prevention Measures Post Vaccination
As much as we all long to return to our pre-COVID freedoms, it is still important to maintain measures that protect us from contracting COVID-19. We must continue to wear mask, keep a physical distance from other people, avoid crowds and confined spaces, and wash our hands regularly.
