Over 351 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine has been given in the United States between December 2020 and early August 2021. The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Common side effects include pain, redness and swelling on the arm where you got the shot. Other side effects include tiredness, headaches, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea. Over-the-counter medicine, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, aspirin, or antihistamines, may relieve post-vaccine side effects. Always talk to your doctor if you are unsure of what you can take. The CDC does not recommend taking these medications before vaccination to try to prevent side effects.
