COVID-19 vaccine side effects

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “COVID-19 vaccine side effects” – below is their description.

Vaccines are designed to give you immunity without the dangers of getting the disease. It’s common to experience some mild to moderate side effects when receiving vaccinations. This is because your immune system instructs your body to increase blood flow so more immune cells can circulate, and it raises your body temperature to kill the virus. Vaccines help protect us against disease and feeling mild or moderate side effects after receiving one is a sign that the vaccine and our immune system is working.
