Nowadays there is a lot of fear and confusion found in the people about taking covid-19 vaccination and side effects of the covid-19 vaccine? So, this article will help you in making a good decision for yourself and your loved ones. I am very blessed and happy to say that I have already taken two doses myself.
The first on January 13, 2021, and the second on February 3, exactly 3 weeks in, I got the Pfizer vaccine.
Do you want to know how I felt after the vaccine? Have I experienced any side effects? Let’s get to that now. How am I feeling after taking the vaccine?
Honestly, I felt the side effects of the second vaccine more than the first.
There was really no pain when the injections were done on both occasions. Great job by both nurses who vaccinated me at the Punggol polyclinic.
However, in both doses, I felt pain in my arm, a little redness, and swelling and it lasted about 3-4 days.
This wasn’t the big deal for me, I went to my regular running, do chin-ups and push-ups and magically – the pain passed away.
However, for the second dose body aches about 24 hours after vaccination, but only lasted about half a day, but there are other side effects that you can experience?
Swollen lymph nodes in the neck or armpits are one of the major side effects that one of my assistants experienced actually he had a swollen lymph node in the neck but good thing is that it quickly went away
One of my clinic managers got a fever on the second day after the injection, but she recovered after taking few days of rest and a simple paracetamol tablet.
According to research, about 13% or 1 in 7 patients experienced a fever. And many felt pain in the body and joints even more after the second injection.
Of course, the most terrifying side effect of all was an allergy.
So with all the forms of external factors, we put into our body, there is always a risk. Allergies we can get from panadol. Often, allergies are caused by antibiotics.
We even have food allergies – a peanut allergy sound familiar.
Not surprisingly, the COVID-19 vaccine also causes allergies.
But, what we need to watch out for really serious allergies like
– Swelling of the face and respiratory ways
– As a result of allergy severe drop in blood pressure and cardiovascular issues
– Allergy-induced respiratory failure
So, the most important question all my patients asked me after they found out that I was vaccinated, “oh! Have you already done it? How did you feel? ”
The second question they always asked me was
“Doctor, do I need to get my parents vaccinated, they are already so old and they barely come out of the house?
Older people now tend to suffer from chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, and even kidney problems.
With more chronic illnesses, your risk of getting very sick from covid-19 becomes more higher.
Although it is true that your elderly parents do not travel much, but it is inevitable that people can still visit them at home, it is inevitable that they will have to buy groceries
Although it is true that the community Covid-19 cases in Singapore are low, it is not zero.
Therefore, for their sake, please convince them to get the vaccine And on that same note, to get yourself vaccinated too, in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus to those close to you.
The third and last but very common question that everyone asks me was
“Is it safe for me?” I am really worried about this.
Well, this is the only vaccine that costs billions of dollars to research, developed and now produced and used by millions of people around the world.
Evidence shows that it is safe and effective so go for it fearlessly as early as possible.
However, just to highlight a few groups of patients who should not be vaccinated.
– Children under 16.
– Pregnant women
– Patients with a history of severe life-threatening allergies due to others even from the first dose of the covid-19 vaccination
– People with asthmatic and serious heart attack history.
– Patients who have an immune system severely weakened by medical conditions
