A new study revealed about the self-reported side effects of COVID-19 vaccines administered between March 19, 2021 and July 15, 2021 in the U.S.
The COVID-19 pandemic has immensely impacted public health and the economy across the globe. The researchers and healthcare professionals believed vaccines can help in reducing the spread of COVID-19. In this context, it is to be noted that the world has not witnessed the development of so many vaccines so rapidly before the emergence of COVID-19. This has created questions in the minds of people regarding the safety of the developed vaccines. Moreover, very little information regarding the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine is available. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved vaccines such as Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the Moderna vaccine, and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for emergency use in the U.S. The researchers in this study recruited participants who had received a complete dose of COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S. to understand the side effects of the three different vaccines. They studied the impact of each vaccines on life, work and tried to identify health-related practices that might increase the chance of acute side effects. It is important to note that the study involved a web-based registry and the participants provided details about their medical history, COVID-19 test results, symptoms, date of COVID-19 vaccination, dietary supplements and gave online consent as well. The participants reported minute details of any side effects after vaccination. The participants also reported if these side effects hampered their ability to do daily activities and if hospitalization was needed due to the side effects.
The researchers concluded that the most common side effects were fatigue, headache, and injection site reactions. They revealed that around 3% participants required medical care post vaccination with very few cases of hospitalizations. The findings of the study can aid healthcare providers and patients in understanding the side effects post vaccination.
