You may experience minor side effects such as arm soreness, muscle aches, headache or chills. These side effects are a sign that your body is responding correctly to the vaccine and building immunity to COVID-19.
If you experience severe side effects, such as difficulty breathing, swelling of your face and throat, fast heartbeat, rash all over your body, dizziness or weakness, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room right away.
