you may have heard, no serious side effects have been reported, but there are still some people who are a little worried.
So, right after the vaccination, as well as after a few hours and another day, we continued to cover how the body was doing.
Reporter Park Chan-geun summarized the contents.
Yesterday (27th) afternoon, I contacted Hwang Myung-Hwan, an employee of a nursing hospital who received the AstraZeneca vaccine, and asked about her condition.
[Hwang Myung-Hwan/Health Care Information Manager: (How did you feel when you got up today, how was your body?) Even when I got up, I was the same as usual...
It felt the same way as when I got the flu shot.] The
injection site was a little stiff, but he said it was not severe pain.
[Hwang Myung-Hwan/Health Care Information Manager: It doesn't hurt when I'm still.
It hurts a little when I use force, pull, push, or do something like this.]
Jin Beom-sik, a doctor who got Pfizer vaccine yesterday morning, said that it had been more than a day, but there were no symptoms.
“In the morning, when I moved my arm, there was a little pain at the place where the injection was given, but in the afternoon it got better to the point where it was a little painful only when I pressed it.”
In the case of himself, he explained, "I had no other symptoms such as headache or nausea."
Experts advise not to worry if some abnormal symptoms appear, and to respond calmly.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States, where more than 40 million people have been vaccinated, is releasing measures to respond to abnormal symptoms after vaccination.
If pain is severe at the injection site, it is recommended to cover it with a damp towel or stretch your arm with light movement.
Drinking a lot of water can also help if you have a little fever.
However, if you have a high fever of 39℃ or higher, or if you have an allergic reaction such as hives, rash, or swollen face or hands, you should visit a medical institution immediately.
