Answered by: Dr Sri Viknarajan
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.
