Data is based on submissions to the V-safe text messaging system and the Vaccine Side Effects Reporting System of the National Vaccine Safety Watch. The analysis used data from the first month of vaccination, from December 14 to January 13, when more than 13,7 million doses were administered.
The CDC said there were 6 reports of so-called side effects after vaccination, including 994 messages that were classified as "not serious" and 6 as "serious", including 354 deaths. The average age of vaccine recipients was 640 years, with the majority of side effects occurring in women.

According to V-safe, more adverse reactions were reported with Pfizer vaccine after the second dose than after the first dose. The experts stated that the level of fever and chills was more than four times higher after the second dose than after the first.

Medical experts say vaccine side effects are common. They actually indicate that the vaccines are working properly. Many doctors advise people to be prepared for some of the more severe-than-usual side effects from COVID-19 vaccinations, especially after the second dose.
Both Pfizer and Moderna have acknowledged that their vaccines can cause side effects similar to those associated with mild COVID-19, such as muscle pain, chills and headache. While the side effects can be unpleasant, doctors say the vaccines are safe.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that you talk to your doctor about taking over-the-counter medications if a patient develops pain or discomfort after vaccination.
