The first thing we are worried about is whether the safety measures were taken while creating the vaccine in such a short period of time.

You might now be wanting to know the possible side effects of taking the vaccine, right? Let me now take you through the side effects of the new Covid-19 vaccines of India.

Side effects of Indian Covid-19 vaccines (Possible)

Typically, the reported side effects include soreness, mild pain, or mild swelling at the site of injection. I have read that if you are having any kind of allergic reactions, you must connect with your family doctor. In fact, I would suggest that if you are allergic to anything, do not forget to consult your doctor before getting vaccinated.

Other side effects include headache, fatigue, muscle pain, and mild fever. Dr. SN Aravinda, Consultant, Internal Medicine, Aster RV Hospital, Bangalore said,

“Ideally, vaccination can be taken before the weekend or before a holiday so that there is not too much work to deal with and the person can relax.”

Usually, these side effects are temporary and will go away as time passes. Typically, all vaccines come with a side effect. It depends on how our immunity system reacts to it.
