HOW SAFE ARE VACCINES?

 

In the backdrop of reports questioning the safety of the vaccines, the DCGI has said both Covishield and Covaxin are safe Covid-19 vaccines. DCGI VG Somani categorically said, “BOTH vaccines are 110 percent safe. Some side effects like mild fever, pain, and allergy are common for every vaccine. We will never approve anything if there is the slightest of safety concerns, Somani said.”  

 

YES! Now go and get that shot.


SIDE-EFFECTS AND TOLERANCE

 

Much like other vaccines in the offering, both Covaxin and Covishield carry reactogenic side effects. Most side effects are on the milder side- pain at the injection site, tenderness, fever, chills, nausea. Headache, abdominal pain, dizziness, tremors could also be seen in a few cases. 

But heyy NO PAIN, NO GAIN. Or you can just ask your doctor for some meds.

When can kids get their vaccine shots?

The immune system in children could vary greatly depending on age. A 6-year-old will have a very different immunity than a 16-year-old. Medical trials for vaccines involving children usually undergo stricter protocols than involving adults. Some pharma companies have already started trials for these vaccines and we will soon have them.

 

NOW, WHO SHOULDN’T TAKE THE VACCINE?

 

Yes, the vaccine is SAFE! But there are scenarios where it is advised by the manufacturers or the doctors to not take a particular vaccine. So read this and make sure you take the right vaccine at the right time.
