What are the side effects?

If you had a negative reaction to the original vaccine, it is understandable that you could have concerns around getting the booster shot. There is not yet enough research to provide conclusive information on how common or severe side effects from the COVID-19 booster shot are. However, medical experts feel confident that, because the booster is an additional dose of the original doses, novel side effects are very unlikely. Keep in mind that the original vaccine caused predominantly mild side effects that lasted either a few days or even only a few hours. The CDC reports that severe side effects occurred in a tiny percentage of the population who received the first vaccine.
