Efeitos colaterais das vacinas COVID-19

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Efeitos colaterais das vacinas COVID-19” – below is their description.

As vacinas destinam-se a conferir imunidade, sem os perigos de contrair a doença. É normal sentir alguns efeitos secundários ligeiros a moderados, quando se recebe a vacina. Isso acontece porque o nosso sistema imunitário está a instruir o nosso corpo para aumentar o fluxo sanguíneo, para que possam circular mais células imunes, e aumenta a temperatura do corpo para matar o vírus. As vacinas ajudam a proteger-nos contra a doença e sentir efeitos secundários ligeiros a moderados depois de ser vacinado é um sinal de que a vacina e o nosso sistema imunitário estão a funcionar.
