It is common to experience mild to moderate side effects post vaccination. This indicates that your body’s immune system is responding to the vaccine, specifically the antigen and preparing to combat the actual virus when it infects you. That’s not to say that having no side effects means that the vaccine is ineffective. Not at all!
However, in case your child experiences symptoms like fever, fatigue, headache, it is easily manageable at home. “In case of any other fever, headache or pain at the injection site one can take a dose of paracetamol under parent’s guidance,” says Dr Taneja.
Apart from that, proper rest, a healthy diet and staying hydrated can revive your child back to normal.
