With any COVID-19 vaccination there are possible side-effects individuals may experience, which organizers want everyone to be aware of. Arm pain may occur at the site of injection, as well as redness and swelling. Throughout the rest of the body, individuals may experience tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever and nausea. These side effects usually start within a day or two of getting the vaccine. Side effects might affect an individual’s ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.
