My wife is in her late 20s, she took her first dose of the vaccine yesterday, she developed a fever, body ache, and headache today and has been in bed the whole day, checking with pulse oximeter, her heartrate stayed around 110-115 bpm for hours now, is this life threatening? Should I take her to a hospital?
