13. Injection Site Pain

Pain Injection

Dr. Fauci says you can expect “pain in the arm.” This pain is apparently similar to the pain you’d feel from the flu shot. The injection site will feel tender for a bit but will fade. However, some have reported the pain to be more severe.

Nurse researcher Kristen Choi, Ph.D., RN, wrote an essay in JAMA Internal Medicine to raise awareness about the “worst-case scenario” side effects.

Choi wrote, “my arm quickly became painful at the injection site, much more than the first time.”
