  • Chills.
  • headache.
  • swollen, painful, or tender lymph glands in the neck, armpit, or groin.
  • unusual tiredness or weakness.

Does having fever, body pain, and swollen lymph nodes after the COVID-19 vaccine mean I am sick?

These symptoms do not mean you are sick. They signal that your immune system is responding to the shot and building up protection against the coronavirus.

What are the possible side effects of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine?


Possible side effects: Pain, redness, swelling in the arm where the shot was administered; tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, nausea throughout the rest of the body. If any of these side effects occur, they should go away in a few days.

What are the effects of the COVID-19 spike protein on the immune system?


When SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19, enters the body, its spike protein binds with the ACE2 receptor, gaining entry to the cell. The immune system responds by producing protective antibodies that bind to the invading virus, blocking or neutralizing its effects.

Has there been any serious adverse events as a result of taking the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine?

Serious adverse events, while uncommon (<1.0%), were observed at slightly higher numerical rates in the vaccine study group compared to the saline placebo study group, both overall and for certain specific adverse events occurring in very small numbers.

Are there any safety concerns concerning mRNA technology of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine?

FDA does not have specific safety concerns with a vaccine that utilizes this technology.

Is the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine safe?


Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine Ingredients. All COVID-19 vaccine ingredients are safe. Nearly all of the ingredients in COVID-19 vaccines are ingredients found in many foods – fats, sugars, and salts. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (COMIRNATY) also contains a harmless piece of messenger RNA (mRNA).

How long do COVID-19 spike proteins last in the body?

The Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) estimates that the spike proteins that were generated by COVID-19 vaccines last up to a few weeks, like other proteins made by the body.

Are people with autoimmune diseases considered high risk for COVID-19?


Researchers have reported higher rates of severe COVID-19 and death in people with autoimmune disease than in the general population. It is unclear whether this is attributable to the autoimmune disease, the immunosuppressive medications taken to treat it, or both.

How does the immune system reacts to the COVID-19 virus?

When a person gets a viral or bacterial infection, a healthy immune system makes antibodies against one or more components of the virus or bacterium.

The COVID-19 coronavirus contains ribonucleic acid (RNA) surrounded by a protective layer, which has spike proteins on the outer surface that can latch on to certain human cells. Once inside the cells, the viral RNA starts to replicate and also turns on the production of proteins, both of which allow the virus to infect more cells and spread throughout the body, especially to the lungs.

While the immune system could potentially respond to different parts of the virus, it's the spike proteins that get the most attention. Immune cells recognize the spike proteins as a foreign substance and begin producing antibodies in response.

What are some of the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine?


Some people have no side effects. Many people have reported side effects, such as headache, fatigue, and soreness at the injection site, that are generally mild to moderate and go away within a few days.

What are the possible side effects of the Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines?


Possible side effects: Pain, redness, or swelling at the site where the shot was administered, and/or tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, or nausea throughout the rest of the body. If these side effects occur, they should go away in a few days. A few side effects are serious, but rare.

Has anyone had severe reactions to the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine?


Monitoring of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine has found 10 cases of anaphylaxis after the administration of 4,041,396 first doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. In 9 out of these 10 cases of anaphylaxis, the recipient of the vaccine had onset of symptoms within 30 min of administration.

Is it normal for lymph nodes to swell after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?

“It's completely normal. It's your immune system reacting to the vaccine, as it should.”

The enlarged lymph nodes may feel like a lump and be a little tender, or you may not notice them at all, Dr.Roy adds.

Can COVID-19 vaccine cause enlarged lymph nodes?

A COVID-19 vaccine can cause enlarged lymph nodes in your armpit or near your collarbone on the side of your body where you received the injection.

Is it possible to feel sick after a COVID-19 booster shot?

If you feel sick after the booster shot, it is normal and those symptoms should relieve themselves in a few days. Common side effects of the booster are similar to the vaccine: Fatigue. Fever.Chills Headache Pain at the injection site Side effects from the vaccine can be a sign that the vaccine is working.

Should you get the Covid vaccine if you have an autoimmune disease?

The American College of Rheumatology COVID-19 Vaccine Clinical Guidance recommends that people with autoimmune and inflammatory rheumatic disease (which includes lupus) get the vaccine unless they have an allergy to an ingredient in the vaccine.

Can taking immunosuppressants increase my chances of getting COVID-19?

And medicines called immunosuppressants may make you more likely to have serious complications from the virus, as can your autoimmune disorder itself

Which groups of people are at increased risks of severe illness from COVID-19?

Among adults, the risk for severe illness from COVID-19 increases with age, with older adults at highest risk. Severe illness means that the person with COVID-19 may require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help them breathe, or they may even die. People of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are also at increased risk for severe illness from SARS-CoV-2 infection.

How long do COVID-19 antibodies last?

At this time, it is unknown for how long antibodies persist following infection and if the presence of antibodies confers protective immunity.

How long does it take for immunity to wane after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?


A study published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that immunity against severe COVID-19 begins to wane four months after receiving a so-called "booster" third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

How long does it take for antibodies to develop after exposure to COVID-19?


It can take days to weeks after an infection for your body to make antibodies.

Is it safe to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes. All currently authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and CDC does not recommend one vaccine over another. The most important decision is to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible.

Is it safe for women to take the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine?


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend most adult women receive a two-shot primary series of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, followed by a booster dose at least five months after the last primary dose.

Are there deaths related to the COVID-19 vaccine?

Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare. FDA requires healthcare providers to report any death after COVID-19 vaccination to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), even if its unclear whether the vaccine was the cause.
