After a corona vaccination, there are usually harmless symptoms - which indicate that the body is producing antibodies.

How long do you have to expect side effects?

Mild fever, cough, exhaustion, runny nose and pain at the injection site: symptoms that are often observed after vaccination with the corona vaccines from Astrazeneca, Biontech / Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. These slight complaints indicate that the vaccination has the desired effect in the body: the immune system is activated and produces antibodies against the coronavirus.

Mild reactions usually occur within two days of vaccination and rarely last longer than one to two days

, according to the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) as the Federal Institute for Vaccines and Biomedical Medicines. However, even in very rare cases, serious complications are possible after vaccination. How long after vaccination can these occur?

Serious side effects such as thrombosis or allergic reactions have very rarely been reported after vaccination with corona vaccines.

But the benefits for the vaccinated person themselves, such as the lower risk of infection with coronaviruses * and the benefits for the general public - keyword herd immunity - outweigh the vaccination risks

, according to the opinion of the responsible authorities such as the Federal

Ministry

of Health.

The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the Federal Institute for Infectious Diseases and Non-Communicable Diseases, also classifies the vaccines approved in Europe as safe: In comprehensive multi-phase approval studies with tens of thousands of volunteers, the vaccines would have been tested and found to be safe.

Side effects usually occur around two weeks after the corona vaccination

However, very rare side effects (very rarely, for example, one case in over 10,000 vaccinated people, according to the RKI) cannot usually be recognized during the approval studies of a vaccine, informs the portal Gesundheitsinformation.de.

After vaccines have been approved for the market, there is therefore constant monitoring (surveillance) to determine their effectiveness and possible side effects

.

Anyone who notices such in themselves should, depending on the symptoms, either consult a doctor immediately, call off the emergency call or / and report side effects on the website www.nebenektiven.bund.de.

After the corona vaccination: What you absolutely must do if you notice any side effects *

Experience with many vaccines over many years has shown that most side effects occur shortly after vaccination, according to a publication by the Federal Ministry of Health.

In the case of Covid vaccinations, vaccination reactions would usually occur shortly after the vaccination

. In the case of Astrazeneca vaccinations, for example, thromboses very rarely occurred around two weeks after the vaccination, according to the Gesundheitsinformation.de portal. To put it into perspective: an estimated six to 14 in a million people developed blood clots after being vaccinated with the Astrazeneca vaccine.

According to the PEI, shortness of breath, chest pain, arm and leg swelling as well as severe headaches that persist for several days after the vaccination are symptoms that you should see to a doctor immediately or call the emergency services.

All cases of such vaccination complications occurred around four to 16 days after the corona vaccination

, the portal rtl.de quotes the institute.
