A number of side effects are considered a normal reaction of the body to the coronavirus vaccine, said general practitioner Viktor Lishin.
A rise in temperature is observed in many people immediately after vaccination, the specialist said. This symptom is not considered dangerous and usually goes away the next day. Chronic patients may experience a slight fever for a little longer.
People suffering from arthritis often complain of joint pain after vaccination, people with bronchitis may experience slight shortness of breath after the procedure, heaviness in the legs can occur in citizens with varicose veins, the doctor warned.
Patients with chronic diseases often have weaker immunity, so they were recommended to get three shots against COVID-19. An additional dose of the vaccine was also advised to deliver to pensioners.
