8. Intense Fever


Another possible side effect of the COVID-19 vaccine is a fever. Kristen Choi also experienced an intense fever after her second dose of the vaccine.

She explained how the fever affected her through the night after getting the vaccine. Her temperature got as high as 104.9 °F (40.5 °C) during the night, and it went down to 102.0 °F (38.9 °C) by 9 a.m., the time when she called to report her side effects.

However, it seems that the symptoms fade away quickly. At least, that was Kristen’s experience, whose symptoms were mostly gone the day after.
