more than three quarters of adverse effects are not serious

Well, minor effects in the vast majority of cases. Adverse effects are usually mild. A recent American study had also shown that in 92% of cases, the side effects observed after the injection of RNA vaccines are mild. This is confirmed in the field by the Medicines Safety Agency (ANSM), which updates its data every month.

Pain at the injection site, fatigue, headache, joint pain, chills, fever, diarrhea seem to be the main effects noted with RNA vaccines. Note that Comirnaty can also be accompanied by insomnia, excessive sweating (day or night), a decrease in appetite or even a feeling of weakness or lack of energy. For the ANSM, “these effects are known and, for some, common to any vaccination. Unpleasant, they are not serious and disappear spontaneously in a few days. »

Others, also known, may appear, but less frequently. They occur in fact from 1 time out of 100 to 1 time out of 1,000. We are talking here about pain in the extremities (hands, feet), itching at the injection site, swelling of the lymph nodes or even dizziness (for Moderna vaccine).

Fortunately, “serious” effects are rarer

The ANSM also notes more serious events, but also much less frequent. These include facial paralysis (which usually resolves within a few weeks) or facial swelling, “which occurs in patients who have had cosmetic facial injections”.

Extremely rarely (less than 1 in 10,000 cases) inflammation of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or inflammation of the lining outside the heart (pericarditis) may occur, sometimes causing shortness of breath, palpitations or pain in the chest. In this case, immediately contact a healthcare professional (doctor or 15) for treatment.

Same thing if you have a skin reaction causing red spots or patches on the skin that look like a target. Even if the number of these cases is undetermined, it is not to be taken lightly.
