01/5Does the COVID-19 vaccine establish immunity even if you don’t have any negative effects?
Since the start of the immunization campaign, the unique adverse effects of the coronavirus vaccine have been a hot issue. Fever, painful arms, headaches, and muscle soreness are some of the signs that the vaccine is working and creating antibodies against the virus. However, not everyone observes similar effects after receiving the vaccine, leading some to wonder if their vaccine dose was ineffective. While it is true that the vaccine causes adverse effects in the majority of people, it is not required in every circumstance. The severity of the side effects is determined by a number of factors, including your age, vaccine type, and whether or not you have had COVID.
02/5 Covaxin and Covishield side effects
In India, the two most common vaccines are Covaxin and Covishield. According to the clinical study for both of these vaccinations, patients may suffer modest symptoms after receiving the shot. Only a few cases have been reported with rare complications. Headache, exhaustion
Covishield’s side effects include muscle or joint discomfort, fever, chills, and nausea. Hives, a rash, edema, and respiratory problems are all possible in rare circumstances.
Covaxin has adverse effects that are quite similar to those of Covishield. Fever, headaches, agitation, soreness, edema, or both at the injection site are some of the most prevalent side effects. Severe allergic responses, shortness of breath, and dizziness are uncommon.
03/5 Age and gender
When it comes to the vaccination’s adverse effects, your age matters. According to studies, people between the ages of 30 and 44 are the most likely to experience negative effects. People above the age of 65 have less negative effects in general. This isn’t to say that vaccines won’t be effective in the elderly. A stronger immune system could be one reason why younger people get severe symptoms. The COVID shot stimulates the immune system, which can result in unwanted side effects.
Research also suggests that immunizations work differently in men and women. In comparison to men, women tend to have more severe side effects. The existence of many hormones in the body could be the main cause of this.
04/5 Should you be worried if you don’t have any negative side effects?
Whether or not you experience any adverse effects after having the shot has no bearing on the vaccine’s effectiveness. Individuals react to immunizations in different ways, which is perfectly normal even if you keep active and feel better after getting the shot. There’s no reason to suppose the vaccine isn’t as effective as it once was.
