No but sore arm. No trouble swallowing or breathing
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
A swollen sore arm is a common side effect. It means he has a strong immune response to the vaccine which is good. He can take ibuprofen or paracetamol for the symptoms. Have him rest and get plenty of fluids. No need to see a doctor. These side effects are common and resolve in a couple of days.
