Efectos secundarios de las vacunas contra la COVID-19

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Efectos secundarios de las vacunas contra la COVID-19” – below is their description.

Las vacunas están diseñadas para proporcionar inmunidad sin el peligro de contraer la enfermedad. Es frecuente experimentar algunos efectos secundarios de leves a moderados después de recibir las vacunas. Esto se debe a que el sistema inmunitario le ordena al cuerpo que aumente el flujo sanguíneo para que puedan circular más células inmunitarias y que aumente la temperatura corporal para matar al virus. Las vacunas nos ayudan a protegernos contra las enfermedades, y el hecho de sentir efectos secundarios leves o moderados después de ponernos una es una señal de que la vacuna funciona y el sistema inmunitario está trabajando.
