Side effects vary depending on the individual and the vaccine. Many people may have mild side effects. The most common include pain or redness at the site of the injection, fatigue, headache, muscle ache, fever, and chills. Most let up within a day. Clinical trials of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines had low numbers of people experiencing severe side effects.
