COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effect Tracker

person receives vaccine

To help you sort through the news on the COVID-19 vaccine’s progress, MedShadow has created the MedShadow Vaccine Tracker, the only tracker focused on the side effects and adverse events associated with proposed COVID-19 vaccinations.

Rather than injecting patients with a weakened virus or proteins from the pathogen that our immune systems can recognize, which is what’s typically done when we get a flu vaccine, the new vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer — the two likely to make it to the market first in the U.S. — contain mRNA (messenger RNA), which is a genetic template that instructs our cells to build the viral proteins that our immune systems can then recognize. Its main perk is that allowing our bodies to produce the proteins (rather than growing them in a lab like traditional vaccines) slashes production time. For nearly 20 years, researchers have been interested in using mRNA in vaccines; and some were even tested in early clinical trials for rabies, influenza and Zika. However, the vaccines for COVID-19 will be the first mRNA vaccines ever approved by the FDA.

Some risks and minor side effects, such as a sore arm where the vaccine is injected or a light skin rash, are clearly worth the benefit of being protected against a disease. Where to draw the line at what is or is not acceptable is a personal decision. That’s where the MedShadow Vaccine Tracker can help. 

On the tracker, we will be publishing up-to-date Phase 3 results information about the risks of each vaccination. Phase 3 tests the vaccine for safety and efficacy in large groups of people (tens of thousands) and is the last stage before the FDA considers approval for use in the population at large.

covid-19 vaccine side effects
Graphic overview of various vaccine trial side effects.


Moderna

Moderna started Phase III clinical trials for its vaccine candidate in July. In earlier trials, nearly half of patients experienced common adverse effects like injection site pain, rash, headaches, muscle soreness, nausea and fevers after the second injection. These effects generally subsided within two days. CNBC spoke to a few individuals, some participating in Moderna’s trial and some in Pfizer’s trial who said much the same thing: the side effects were intense and included a high fever, body aches, bad headaches and exhaustion, but were worth it for protection from Covid-19.

In the FDA report published in December, the most common side effects were pain at injection site (91.6% of patients), fatigue (68.5%), headache (63.0%), muscle pain (59.6%), joint pain (44.8%), and chills (43.4%). Three patients experienced Bell’s Palsy, a sudden, and usually temporary, weakening or paralysis of the facial muscles.

A few patients with facial fillers experienced swelling after receiving the vaccine. They were treated with antihistamines and steroids. In California, officials halted the use of one particular batch of Moderna vaccines (lot 41L20A) after a small cluster (fewer than 10) of patients at one particular site experienced allergic reactions that required medical attention.

Twenty-nine people in the U.S. have had anaphylactic reactions to either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Most were treated with epinephrin (the drug in EpiPens) and none have died. The NIH has opened an investigation to determine which ingredient they are reacting to. As of right now, the CDC recommends caution for patients who have a history of anaphylactic reactions to any vaccination, but suggests that they can still be vaccinated as long as they take precautions. Patients are now being monitored for 15-30 minutes after receiving the vaccine to watch for signs of anaphylaxis. 

Moderna has announced that it will begin testing its vaccine in children and adolescents, who they believe may have stronger immune responses, leading to more intense side effects like fevers and aches.


Pfizer

Pfizer began Phase III clinical trial for its vaccine candidate in July. In earlier trials, some patients experienced common adverse effects like injection site pain, rash, headaches, muscle soreness, nausea and fevers. These effects generally subsided within two days. CNBC spoke to a few individuals, some participating in Pfizer’s trial and others in Moderna’s trial who said much the same thing: the side effects were intense and included a high fever body aches, bad headaches and exhaustion in addition to the more common side effects, but were worth it for protection from Covid-19.

Some patients described the side effects as being similar to a bad hangover. A nurse who participated in the clinical trial reported feeling minimal effects after the first dose, but a fever that reached more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit after the second injection, along with chills, headache, and intense injection site pain. According to researchers, her experience of having all symptoms together was rare, though many patients had one or two of these side effects. “Clinicians will need to be prepared to discuss with patients why they should trust the vaccine and that its adverse effects could look a lot like COVID-19,” the nurse wrote on Dec 7.

The FDA report published in December said the most common reactions were injection site reactions (84.1%), fatigue (62.9%), headache (55.1%), muscle pain (38.3%), chills (31.9%), joint pain (23.6%), fever (14.2%). The FDA reported that four patients who received the vaccine experienced Bell’s Palsy.

Twenty-nine people in the U.S. have had anaphylactic reactions to either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Most were treated with epinephrin (the drug in EpiPens) and none have died. The NIH has opened an investigation to determine which ingredient they are reacting to. As of right now, the CDC recommends caution for patients who have a history of anaphylactic reactions to any vaccination, but suggests that they can still be vaccinated as long as they take precautions. Patients are now being monitored for 15-30 minutes after receiving the vaccine to watch for signs of anaphylaxis. 

A doctor in Florida died 16 days after receiving the vaccine from a rare blood disorder, acute immune thrombocytopenia. Both Pfizer and the CDC are investigating, though the company has released a statement that so far, they haven’t seen any signs in the clinical trials or data collected from early vaccinations that the death could be related to the vaccine.

Twenty-three elderly patients in Norway died after receiving Pfizer’s vaccine. Officials are investigating whether or not the deaths are vaccine-related. Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, suggests that while the deaths may be coincidental given the fragile population, it’s possible that side effects of the vaccines, like fevers, may have strained the frail patients’ bodies and contributed to their deaths. Norway has vaccinated about 45,000 people so far, most of whom live in nursing homes.


CanSinBio (China) 

China granted the CanSinBio vaccine emergency approval prior to beginning a Phase III trial in August. In the Phase II trial, nearly three-quarters of patients reported at least one common mild adverse events including injection site pain, rash, headaches, muscle soreness, and fevers. Five people also reported vomiting.


Gamaleya Research Institute (Russia)

Gamaleya Research Institute launched Phase III trials in August. But before they got started, President Putin announced that the vaccine was approved early, however, the Phase III trials are expected to continue. In the earlier trials, almost all of the patients experienced low-grade fevers. A small number of patients reported heart palpitations. Otherwise, reported side effects were similar to other vaccines and included injection site pain, rash, headaches, and muscle soreness.


Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson started a Phase III trial for its vaccine candidate in September, but paused it on October 12 due to an unexplained illness and remains on hold. The company announced it would restart the trial on October 26. Pauses are common during clinical trials to evaluate specific adverse events, but the company has not shared details about the illness experienced by one of the trial volunteers. In earlier trials, about 70% of patients experienced at least one mild adverse effect similar to those seen with other vaccines, including injection site pain, rash, headaches, muscle soreness, and fevers.


Astrazeneca

On September 6, the company paused the trial to investigate a patient who developed transverse myelitis – dangerous inflammation of the spinal cord. Researchers determined that the incident was unrelated to the vaccine and quickly restarted the trial in most countries, however it remained paused in the US until October 26. On October 21, scientists reported a patient in the trial had died, however, according to a local newspaper, the patient was in the control arm of the trial, meaning they’d received a placebo instead of the vaccine, so the trial is ongoing.

In earlier trials, many patients reported mild adverse effects similar to those associated with the other vaccines including injection site pain, rash, headaches, muscle soreness, and fevers. The team gave some of these patients preventative acetaminophen to reduce pain and fever. Nearly half of patients also experienced temporary neutropenia – a reduction in white blood cells that can make a person more susceptible to infections.

The vaccine has been approved for use in the U.K., Argentina, India, and Mexico.


Novavax (United Kingdom)

Novavax began Phase III clinical trials with its vaccine candidate in the United Kingdom in September and is had planned to start a trial in the United States in October. The trial was delayed due to manufacturing problems. The U.S. trial started on December 28. During Phase I/II trials, patients reported adverse events similar to those of other vaccine candidates, including injection site pain, rash, headaches, muscle pain, fever, nausea and vomiting. 


 Sinopharm (China) 

In July, Sinopharm launched Phase III trials of its two vaccine candidates in the United Arab Emirates, Peru, Morocco, and Argentina, which are now approved for limited use in healthcare workers in China and the UAE. In earlier trials of one of the vaccines, made in collaboration with Wuhan Institute of Biological Products, about 15% of the patients reported adverse events similar to those of other vaccine candidates, including injection site pain, rash, headaches, muscle pain, fever, nausea and vomiting. There is little data available about the second vaccine, made in collaboration with the Beijing Institute of Biological Products.


Sinovac (China)

Sinovac opened Phase III trials of its vaccine candidate, CoronaVac, in July. It is already being used with emergency approval for high risk individuals in China. The earlier trials showed that about a third of patients experienced adverse effects similar to those in other vaccine candidates like injection site pain, fever, and fatigue, but the study included few details about more specific symptoms like nausea, headaches, and vomiting. On November 10, the trial was halted in Brazil due to a participant’s death. However, researchers say the death was not vaccine-related and the trial should continue. It has not been halted in other countries.


Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (England)

The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute is running a Phase III trial repurposing Bacillus Calmette-Guerin — a vaccine developed nearly a century ago to prevent tuberculosis infections — to prevent Covid-19. Since the vaccine has been around such a long time, there are many reports on its potential adverse effects and the vaccine itself has been altered to minimize many of them. Injection site reactions are common, and lymphadenitis, swelling of the lymph nodes, is common.  

Bharat Biotech

Bharat Biotech announced it would begin Phase III trials in India on October 23. In early trials demonstrated side effect profiles similar to those of the other vaccines, including pain at the injection site, fatigue, headache, and fever. The country announced emergency approval, though no Phase III data was included in the announcement.

  1. Thanks very much for developing the Covid 19 vaccine side-effects tracker. This will be very important information to have!

  2. I find it embarrassing that the “vaccine” administered to the control group of the Astrazeneca trials is falsely called a placebo when in fact the control group also had actual vaccines.
    This makes the control group as susceptible for side effects as the main group just as the case with the fraudulent approval of the HPV-vaccine Gardasil where the control group also received all the ingredients just not the antigens.
    By comparing a vaccine to something that is not a real placebo will make the comparison ridiculous due to the fact that both groups will have similar effects.
    In the Gardasil trials this similarity was used to create a false narrative that there was no significant difference between the two groups, actual vaccinated and placebo… Although there was no real placebo group.
    Just a note!

    1. @Mads Wedel-Ibsen- You don’t know what you are talking about. I’m a participant in the Astrazeneca Phase III trial; 2 out of 3 people get the actual vaccine, and 1 out of 3 people get the Placebo (sterile saline solution).

    2. The control group for the Astrazeneca Phase 3 trial in the USA is receiving an injection saline solution. I am a Phase 3 participant.

  3. dear sir i havean allergy with penecilin after i cut a finger seventy years ago. i am now 82 and expecting to get the covid vacine so would it be safe to have the vacination.
    can you help ? drg cummins.

  4. I am concerned with statements like “these solicited adverse events were generally short-lived.” Pfizer’s report has similar language (‘most’ resolved within 2-3 days). These vague sentences could mean ‘nearly half the time symptoms persisted indefinitely’! Did all instances of fever or fatigue, for example, resolve eventually? Or did some people have fevers and fatigue for weeks and still had them when the follow up period ended?

  5. If people realized how ridiculous is to give those “vague” sentences for something as important as health, side effects, symptoms….. But it just shows that human-factor and human-life is not as important as “the end goal” of “eliminating a virus”…..
    I would be much more concerned with all the biolabs in existence throughout the world…. The reason why should we LET this labs exist, instead of banning them! What makes them less dangerous than “weapons of mass destruction”?!

  6. I am a volunteer with the Astrazeneca program and have a serious concern regarding their protocols and disclosure. I tolerated the initial injection without side-effects yet developed a strange auto-immune response immediately after the second injection. On the morning after the second injection, I noticed a large nodule on the middle joint of my finger which has not resolved. I have left several messages with the team advising of this development and have yet to receive a return call. While this is obviously not life-threatening, I strongly believe that it is a side-effect of the vaccine which should be noted as any other side-effect.

    1. If you are in the U.S. you might also be able to report this to the CDC. They track adverse reactions of all kinds. I and my sister both had a rare (not recorded) reaction to a medication and I asked my physician’s office to report it. They did, but it makes extra work, so you can imagine that a lot could slip through the cracks. Worth doing. I’m concerned about this too for people with autoimmune diseases. I’d love to see an explanation about why this should be safe for such folks. Obviously this will be hypothetical based on logic/theory of how the immune system works. While clinical trials are important, we need more information for a novel vaccine.

  7. A rheumatologist should be including in follow up of adverse side effects after the last shot and every month after for 6 months or so. Checking inflammation over time and markers for disease is important. This symptoms that “usually” go away can be symptoms or early stages of a chronic disease. Leaving it to the public to report side effects is difficult because many do not understand their body or have access to good health care and by the time they do find a diagnosis it is later after visits to multiple doctors.

  8. i had my covid 19 vaccine and the day after i ended in the emergency room with shorth of breath, tachycardia , high blood pressure, nauseas, chills, dizziness they did all tests possible and the conclusion is that had a very bad reaction to the vaccine . I am 43 years healthy don’t have any medical conditions and my covid 19 test was negative . is scary how people is reactioning to the vaccine not sure if I will get the second dose

  9. Its good to know how risky,the risk potential long term is unknown, but since there is a safe and effective natural therapy-why bother,

    1. Are you nuts? If there was a safe and effective natural therapy for this, people wouldn’t be dying by the thousands every day. Inform yourself!

  10. I am a 61 yo working nurse with Asthma and Diabetes. I got my first injection at 0815 and by 1000 the headache started. As the day progressed I had more injection site discomfort but nothing beyond the usual flu shot irritation. I woke up the second day with fatigue and a low grade fever and chills. Today is day three and the headache is still there but the rest of the symptoms have subsided. Out of the seven coworkers that received the vaccination on the same day, only two of us had symptoms.

  11. My daughter received the Moderno vaccine on Wednesday December 30 New Year’s day her face swelled she had a heart rate of 135 she was admitted to emergency room in Everett Washington she’s a front line healthcare provider and her worksite required her to take the vaccine she was admitted to the ER again not with the swelling but with tremors hi heart rate was having a hard time breathing she was admitted to the ER again where they administered IV the first time she had received steroids but no swelling so they just gave her fluids and Valium to reduce her heart rate I am extremely concerned as she has continued dizziness 10 days after the vaccine she is still dizzy what’s the long-term effect I see that the reported adverse reactions as .6% I do not believe her house worksite reported they adverse reaction if anyone has information in regards how to be treated when you have adverse reactions and dizziness high heart rate fatigue she’s experiencing fatigue now 10 days after the vaccine please contactMe

  12. Please help. I received the moderna vaccine on Dec 30th (health care professional) today is January 9th. I have a baseball size rash, hot to touch, not painful that started last a Tuesday (six days after injection). At first my arm was a bit sore but nothing more than the flu vaccine. I have drawn a circle around the mark to see if it is increasing in size, it has been increasing each day. I went to dr and they. Told me they don’t know what is causing this but put me on an antibiotic. I am scheduled for second vaccine on Jan 25th. Not sure if I should still get this.

    1. I had similar reaction with Moderna. Dau #2, arm was very sore (more than I’ve ever had with flu vaccine. On day # 8 noticed a light rash starting. Rash got progressively itchy and larger over the next day. It is now day #10 and redness has started to lessen but spread is a bit larger. Still remains itchy, slightly sensitive and warm to touch. I am having 2nd thoughts about dose #2.

      1. I am now having a similar rash 10 days after my first Moderna shot. Rash started at the injection site the size of a tennis ball and was red, hot and itchy. But I also have small itchy hives on my left hand and both ankles and calves. Glad to know I am not the only one, but also wondering about shot #2.

      2. I got my vaccine in January 10 and everything was fine. Just a little sore. Now out of no where, 8 days later my upper arm to shoulder is in “arthritis-like” pain, swelling the size of a baseball and a red rash appeared at the injection site!

      3. I had my first moderma shot on Jan 11 with and today Jan 19 I started itching at injection site. When I touch the area I can feel a lump and it’s a bit red. When researching I did see it’s fairly common to have a lump after receiving a vaccine. Will keep an eye on it. Took a picture for reference.

  13. Thank you Covid -19 vaccine side effects tracker , you made my day. From Jordan the due respect to your team. Dr. Ziad Najjar MD. MPH

  14. Hey Michelle,
    I too am experiencing this. I reached out to our Medical Director handing our Vaccine clinics (who also happens to be my PCP). I thought I would share my experience with you and with others. I received my first dose on 1/2/21. My arm was sore that day and even more sore on day two. Then I was fine until day 7 and the site was tender again. Day 8 I woke up with redness, hot to the touch and very itchy. I was told to try Tylenol, hydrocortisone and cold compresses. It’s a little better today, less itch. I don’t think the Tylenol did anything. I was told that it isn’t an allergic reaction as that is within the first 15 minutes to 4 hours of receiving the vaccination. I’m told that this is a side effect and my body’s robust response. I was told that the contraindication of my symptoms wouldn’t prevent me from receiving the second dose. More info here under the ‘Recommendation for Contraindication and Precautions’ section: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/clinical-considerations.html
    Also, anyone can and should report any symptoms to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) https://vaers.hhs.gov/
    The more information we can provide them the better. Hope you get some relief. Also, I’m a 41 yr old female, got the Moderna vaccine.

    1. Jame- I too have had the same experience. Baseball size swelling, itchy, warm, painful starting on Day 8. It’s now Day 11 and the redness and soreness has continued to spread out and down my arm. When did yours go away? Did you ever take anything? I was told by nurses that ts very common and it’s my bodies response to the vaccine but others cautioned it could be cellulitis. Looking for people experience and how it was resolved and very importantly the time line to resolution. Thank you!

  15. Michelle, a very similar thing has happened to my mom. She also got the vaccine on Dec 30, and for the first couple of days just had arm soreness and a little fatigue. She was fine after that until Jan 10 when – just like you – she developed a baseball size rash on her arm which is warm and itches a bit but doesn’t really hurt. She went to a doctor today and the doctor said they have heard of this happening to some people who’ve gotten Covid shots and don’t know what’s causing it but she too prescribed an antibiotic. Can you let me know what other medical advice you receive, and I’ll do the same?

  16. I had the first vaccine and had side effects, I had headaches, nausea, back pain and it even felt like I had a UTI. I became lethargic and could not focus: and had to leave work half a day. And then could not go back to work because i still could not focus, I would stumble over my words, could not finish a sentence. My back pain started to get better after 2 weeks and then I had to get the second shot, now my back hurts again and I have periods where I run fever. And all the other side effects.

  17. Currently in the UK it is not for under 16, severe allergies or pregnancy and also now those with Guillain-Barré syndrome. the ‘gold standard’. However some people who are more vulnerable to this ingredient and can even develop antibodies against this substance and therefore develop allergic, sometimes severe, reactions to it.
    There are many studies from a few years ago to more recently at the the beginning of this year regarding the Importance of ‘Poly(ethylene glycol) Alternatives for Overcoming PEG Immunogenicity in Drug Delivery and Bioconjugation,’ which would then help decrease the risk of adverse side effects even more, which could be one point. This is just one study of many and alternatives are being developed and not all vaccines will use this ingredient, I understand currently for PfizerBioNTech at this stage, it is not recommended for under 16, those with severe allergies, pregnancy and also now those with Guillain-Barré syndrome.

  18. Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is one of the ingredients the PfizerBioNTech and Moderna vaccine and it was considered the ‘gold standard’. However some people are more vulnerable to this ingredient and can even develop antibodies against this substance and therefore develop allergic, sometimes severe, reactions to it.

  19. Margaret Liu, the chairman of the board of the International Society for Vaccines and a pioneer of gene-based vaccines. (Liu is on scientific advisory board of the University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute, which developed AstraZeneca’s vaccine for COVID-19.) Had this to say in ‘The Scientist’.
    “Why these vaccines (mRNA) seem so effective while previous attempts against other pathogens haven’t appeared as promising remains an open question. One simple reason, according to Liu, might be the sheer volume of resources that were poured into developing them. Liu also hypothesizes that one explanation for the high levels of efficacy is that the vaccines might be triggering a nonspecific inflammatory response to the mRNA that could be heightening its specific immune response, given that the modified nucleoside technique reduced inflammation but hasn’t eliminated it completely. On the flip side, she adds, this may also explain the intense reactions such as aches and fevers reported in some recipients of the mRNA SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. (Others have suggested that the lipid nanoparticle is responsible for these severe, but transient, side effects reported in some trial participants.)”?

  20. I had the Pfizer vaccine with very minor fatigue fatigue and some aches in my back and knee after the second dose. I have spoken to about a hundred other medical staff members and none of us and no one we have spoken to have had anything more dramatic then what I experienced. None of my office personnel have had their second Moderna dose, but the first dose was without side effects on 35 people. Sorry that there are individuals who are having less fortune. Many of the things described above are side effects we see after administering allergy shots.

  21. Sad that the article is not updated but is month and month old. Good that we get the realtime comments and stories though!

    1. Hi Mette,
      This article is updated as we see media reports of any adverse reactions. It’s usually 1-2 updates per week, mostly under the Moderna and Pfizer categories.

  22. I am a pharmacist in Memphis, Tennessee, I have received both vaccinations with Phizer vaccine for Covid. The first shot went ok – no major side effects or issues. The second shot that I received on 1/7/21 has been a different story. Initially nothing was wrong. About 36-48hrs later my right thumb started to pain me when I used my right hand for anything or the simplest of tasks as in tying my shoe. I didn’t think much of it and thought maybe I hurt it doing something else, but I couldn’t recall where I might have hurt it. Then I thought this could be from the vaccine. I tried to look up cases of this but didn’t find anything so then I just tried to convince myself it was something else and kept complaining to my wife. That was until my wife went to work last Friday 1/15/21 and she told me how one of her clients said she had taken the vaccine (second shot) and has been experiencing unbearable pain in her right thumb. My wife at the time freaked out and asked her again to repeat what she said. She then called me and told me what the lady had told her and how she has been complaining about the same thing for over a week now. The pain is unbearable when I use my right hand for the simplest of tasks (pick up anything, hold something, etc). When i don’t use the hand or thumb there is no pain. its almost two weeks now I have been dealing with this.

  23. I received my first shot on 1/5. No side effects except a very sore arm. A week later I developed a rash and my injection site was hot and itched like crazy. I took Benadryl and put hydrocortisone cream on it along with cold compresses. It went away after 3 days. A week after that it came back only this time the splotchy redness was all over the side of my arm. It did not itch as much, but the rash was over a much larger area. I am doing the same again, but it has been 3 days and has not gone away yet. I am not sure I am going to get my second shot.

  24. I thought you were talking about me! I am also 41, female, had Moderna vaccine last Monday. So today is day 8 and I also woke up with a baseball size redness on my left arm where I had the injection. Super hot to touch , feels firm when pressed and very itch. Itchness was worse in the morning, it was so bad I thought it was a bug bite. I applied cortizone 10 cream but it didn’t do anything. Icing the area helped a bit but it becomes hot again quick. I outlined the area with a pen… hopefully it gets better in few days 🙁

  25. I got my 1st dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine! After receiving my first shot, my temperature elevated slightly. I could not sleep at all that night because I experienced body aches, fever, chills, headache, dried mouth, and fatigue. My injected arm was extremely sore. I did not take Ibuprofen or Advil. Instead, I drank a lot of water and went to the bathroom frequently, too. The next day I tried to take a nap during the day and headed to bed early as well. My body was back to perfectly normal on the fourth day after I got that Vaccine.
