Covid-19 symptoms 30days after 1st dose of AZ vaccine

Answered by: Dr Sri Viknarajan

Hi Doc,
I had my 1st dose of AZ vaccine 32 days ago. Early this week I had to go to office to do some work. I tried my best to take all the precautions such as face masks, and hand hygiene but I realized the office air ventilation was not good.

Starting yesterday, I start to feel feverish (36.9C), but the fever subsides in the evening. Today morning I feel more feverish, arounds 37.5C. So far its only mild fever.

Should I be worried and get tested for covid? Should I also self isolate from the rest of my household?

I appreciate yr advise. Thanks Doc.

For your information, an individual that has received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are still susceptible to a COVID-19 infection. Furthermore, according to the WHO, common symptoms for COVID-19 infection are as follows:

  • Fever (more than 37.5 degrees Celcius)
  • Fatigue
  • Aches and pains
  • Sore throat
  • Headaches
