The most common side effects following COVID-19 vaccines are fatigue, a fever, headaches, body aches, chills, nausea, diarrhea, and pain at the site of injection, according to the World Health Organization. It is best to wait and see whether any side effects arise, then treat these individually, as opposed to guessing and taking several over-the-counter products ahead of time.A person should visit their local pharmacist before taking any over-the-counter medications to ease side effects of the vaccine. In this case, the following may help:For anyone who prefers not to take over-the-counter medications or is looking for additional treatments, several self-care techniques can help ease any COVID-19 vaccination side effects.For reactions at the injection site, such as pain or swelling, use a clean, cool wet washcloth to create a compress. This can be a side effect of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccination. Adverse effects of COVID-19 vaccines should only last for a few days.
