Hello! Thank you for your question.

First of all, we would like to congratulate you on receiving your first dose of vaccination. We understand you’re currently having symptoms of fever. This symptom is a normal side effect of vaccination, and this is usually an indication that the vaccine is working. Other side effects that you may have include :

  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness
  • Pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site

These symptoms usually resolve after a few days, but if your symptoms become worse or intolerable, please refer to the nearest clinic for a consultation.

You may reach out to us regarding this matter if you need further assistance.

Thank you, we hope our answer is helpful.
