As of 4 April 2021, 25.4% of the eligible population has already received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine since the national vaccination campaign started on 23 December 2020. Qatar is currently administering the COVID-19 vaccine from two companies: Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna.

But like other vaccines, individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine may develop side effects from it. The side effects are usually minor and are a normal occurrence as our bodies build immunity to the virus. However, some individuals may also develop more severe side effects.

What are the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine?

Extensive clinical trials and real-life use of the vaccine on more than 200 million people around the world have shown the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to be safe. However, as with any vaccine, people may experience mild side effects including low-grade fever, mild headache, fatigue, and soreness at the injection site. - MoPH COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ

Common side effects on the arm where you've got the shot include pain, redness and swelling while throughout the rest of your body, side effects include tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea, according to US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The US CDC also added that the "side effects can affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days."
