7 COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects Dr. Fauci Wants You to Understand 1

COVID-19 possible side effects


One possible side effect of ANY type of vaccine is fever. The COVID-19 vaccine is no different, it raises your body temperature above 100.4 degrees within 48 hours of the vaccination. The good news is that it goes away just as fast. According to the CDC, “drink plenty of fluids” and use light, breathable clothing to reduce fever.

79-year-old Dr. Fauci got the vaccine in December 2020 on live TV, at the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH), alongside other health officials such as NIH director Dr. Francis Collins. “What we’re seeing now is the culmination of years of research which have led to a phenomenon that has truly been unprecedented,” Fauci said after receiving the first dose of the Moderna vaccine. After receiving the second dose in January, Dr. Fauci revealed that he had experienced fatigue and was actually “knocked out” for about 24 hours. He also said he was “a little achy” and “chilly,” but not feeling sick from the vaccine.

“Small price to pay for protection against COVID,” says vaccine expert Dr. William Schaffner of Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
