PATIENT: Darwin Belen, RN, vaccinated at the end of the day, Monday, December 21, 2020, injected with first dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.
SIDE EFFECTS ON FIRST DAY AFTER: On Tuesday, December 22, muscle soreness reported at injection site. No other side effects reported.
The most commonly reported side effects, which typically lasted several days, were pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, joint pain, and fever. Of note, more people experienced these side effects after the second dose than after the first dose, so it is important for vaccination providers and recipients to expect that there may be some side effects after either dose, but even more so after the second dose.
