Myth: COVID-19 vaccines cause severe & dangerous side effects

Fact: No. You may have some short-term side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection.

These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.

Common side effects reported from clinical trials of approved vaccines include:

  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Pain where they got the shot

If you have allergies — especially severe ones that require you to carry an EpiPen — discuss the COVID-19 vaccine with your doctor, who can assess your risk and provide more information.
