Hi there, I had my Pfizer vaccine 10 days ago and for about the last week or so I’ve had a headache. Now it’s mild to moderate pain wise and I’m still able to go about my day and feels like a sinus headache round my eyes and pressure rather than a stabbing or sharp pain is this normal!!?

I suffer from low platelets and consulted my GP before getting a vaccine and they advised me to go for the Pfzier

That's not from the vaccine

But it could be a sinus infection

I suggest you have your doctor check it out to see if you need antibiotics

you don’t think it’s related to the vaccine!? I generally keep good health and haven’t really needed to take many painkillers to help ease the pain? I was just a bit concerned with all the talk of blood clots related to other vaccines

Nothing to do with a blood clot
