Dizziness and headache is one of the most common effects a person experiences after being vaccinated. Other symptoms also occur such as fever or chills, sometimes even as if you are fighting a minor infection.
But what makes headaches a prominent vaccine side effect? Is there a way to solve it? Launch from the Times of India, if you have recently received a dose the Covid-19 vaccine and experiencing headaches, it’s nothing to worry about.
In fact, headache is one of the most commonly seen and documented side effects of vaccines and is listed on the vaccine fact sheet. Like any other side effect, a headache is also a sign of a mild reactogenic side effect that feels like the body is mimicking a viral infection.
