The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just done an update for its COVID-19 vaccine side-effect guidelines.
COVID-19 vaccines are rolling out around the country, and now the CDC has just changed its guidelines for possible vaccine side-effects.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) changed its guidelines only a few days ago, and part of the changes were focused on side-effects that occur after getting the second COVID-19 vaccine shot.
Besides the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, all other COVID-19 vaccines that the FDA has approved for use require two doses for full prevention.
In the new update, the CDC warns that side-effects from the second dose of the vaccine “may be more intense than the ones you experienced after your first shot.”
However, the CDC states that these side-effects are “normal signs that your body is building protection and should go away within a few days.” Research on vaccine side-effects after the first or second shot is still underway.
