The COVID Vaccine’s Side Effects Demonstrate Its Effectiveness

It’s fantastic news if you experienced fever, chills, nausea, or any other typical adverse effects after receiving the COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer /BioNTech and Moderna.

It denotes that your body’s antibody response was stronger than that of those who experienced only little discomfort or a rash at the injection site or no reaction at all.

New research appearing in the journal JAMA Network Open supports that.

Researchers from Columbia University in New York, the University of Vermont, and Boston University concluded that the results “support redefining postvaccination symptoms as markers of vaccine effectiveness and reaffirm recommendations for booster vaccinations in older persons.”

Regardless of the severity of the reaction, the vaccinations provide excellent protection, according to the researchers. After receiving two doses of the vaccine, 928 adult research participants almost universally experienced a favourable antibody response.

I don’t want a patient to say, ‘Golly, I didn’t receive any reaction, my arm wasn’t hurting, I didn’t have fever,’ or something of that effect. The vaccine wasn’t effective. William Schaffner, MD, a professor in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Division of Infectious Diseases, told CNN, “I don’t want that conclusion to be out there.

According to Schaffner, who was not involved in the study, “this is more to reassure patients who have had a reaction that that’s their immune system responding, actually in a fairly favourable way, to the vaccine, even though it has caused them some discomfort.”
