The safety of covid-19 vaccine is top priority, says CDC.After FDA approves a vaccine or authorizes a vaccine for emergency use, it continues to be studied to determine how well it works under real-world conditions. CDC and other federal partners will be assessing COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness under real-world conditions according to CDC.
Three candidates have already been vaccinated and are on lookout for side effects.Already, some volunteers in trials of candidate vaccines from drug companies Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca have reported flu-like symptoms after immunization said webmd.
Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association said both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccines require two doses at varying intervals. As a practicing physician, she said she worries whether her patients will come back for a second dose because of the potentially unpleasant side effects they may experience after the first shot reported CNBC
“These are immune responses, so if you feel something after vaccination, you should expect to feel that. And when you do, it’s normal that you have some arm soreness or some fatigue or some body aches or even some fever,” Patricia Stinchfield of Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, told the meeting of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
The public health officials and doctors should warn people about the side effects so that the people would be mentally prepared for the vaccine shot beforehand.
