Here's how to deal with the side effects of the Covid-19 Vaccine

 Side effects such as pain and swelling at the injection site, fatigue, headache, fever and chills are common symptoms experienced by Covid-19 Moderna and Pfizer-BioNtech vaccine recipients, Xinhua news agency quoted CNBC as saying in a recent health report.


According to CNBC, those with side effects can take painkillers to reduce symptoms, referring to the recommendations of the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


According to the report, it is common for the human body to experience side effects because the body's immune system works to prepare and protect it from the virus through a process of 'controlled inflammation' when the mRNA vaccine responds.


Bernama reports that in order to reduce the side effects that may be serious in some cases, the US CDC says people can take painkillers such as ibuprofen, aspirin, antihistamines or acetaminophen after receiving the vaccine.



However, the agency advised them to seek medical advice first.


However, the US CDC does not support taking the pill before receiving the injection because it can weaken the immune system's response to the vaccine.


Other methods that can be used to reduce side effects include soaking with a damp, cold cloth at the injection site to relieve pain, drinking water in large quantities in case of fever and wearing thin clothing.


The report states that more people will start to experience side effects after receiving the second injection because the first injection only stimulates the immune response while the second injection to boost the immune system.
