Hi. I am in my forties. If I have the Covid-19 Vaccine during my period, will it worsen the side effects? Which vaccine is suitable?
Hi,thank you for this question.
From this statement I understand that you are 40 years of age and you are seeking information regarding the Covid-19 vaccine.
We understand your concern and are keen in helping you with this information.
For your information you can consider any vaccine during this period of time.
Most common side effects from the covid-19 vaccines are pain,redness and fever.
True that AZ vaccine has been rumoured to have side effects of increased blood clot,but this is very rare.
Hope these information was of great help to you.
