The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made few changes to its vaccine guidelines after adding three new side effects which could occur after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
Earlier, the government body had listed six potential serious reactions to the vaccine which include headache, pain, fever, swelling, chills, and fatigue.
Now, the agency has added three more side effects of the vaccination including redness, muscle pain, and nausea.
The most common side effects after the covid-19 injection include pain at jab site as well as short-term flu-like symptoms, which are more visible after the second dose.
The CDC is warning persons not to mistake the pain at the site of injection as a sign of muscle pain but has also advised people to keep in touch with their doctors in case side effects persists
Earlier, a group of scientists said that the side effects of COVID-19 vaccines include benign skin issues like rashes and redness, which were particularly observed among people who were given the Moderna Vaccination.
Covid-19 Vaccinations started three months ago, in North America, Europe, and Israel among other countries and while side effects so far have remained minimal there have also been some reported cases of severe reactions.
