How Can I Prepare for My Second Dose?

Vaccine side effects are very common after the second dose, especially in younger people. Symptoms may include…

  1. Headache.
  2. Muscle pain.
  3. Low grade fever.

To help lessen potential side effects, we recommend…

  1. Getting a good night’s sleep before your second dose.
  2. Eating a nutritious breakfast before your second dose.
  3. Staying hydrated before and after your second dose.
  4. Taking acetaminophen or ibuprofen after your second dose if symptoms arise.
