Common Side Effects of the COVID-19 Vaccine 

We are so blessed a vaccination, or three, has been made and pushed out worldwide. It is critical the persons getting the COVID-19 vaccine know the common side effects of the treatment. Most side effects will subside in a few days. So, this would be an excellent time to take it easy for a few days after each shot. 

Common Side Effects of the COVID-19 Vaccine 

The reactions created are promising and indicate the vaccine is working hard on you. And some people may not even feel a thing. Whichever type you are, there are normal reactions that tell your body’s fighting to immunize you. Likewise, there is a time to call your doctor. Here are the typical reactions: 

  • Injection site pain 
  • Swelling of the upper arm 
  • A slight fever 
  • Chills 
  • Tiredness 
  • Headache 

Should you experience these side effects, talk to your doctor about over-the-counter medications for pain and discomfort. Also, you may want to try the following home remedies: 

  1. Drink plenty of fluids.
  2. Apply a clean, cool, wet washcloth over the inflammation.
  3. Move and use your arm on the day of injection.
  4. Wear clothes that do not restrict movement and are lightweight.

When Is It Time to Call the Doctor? 

Patients who have received the vaccination should call their local doctor if experiencing any of the following. 

  • The redness or tenderness where you got the shot continues to increase in size and swelling and does not begin to subside after 24 hours. 
  • If your side effects are concerning or do not seem to be going away after a few days, it is best to call the doctor. 
  • Should you feel you may be having an allergic reaction, call for emergency services. 

The Caribbean is proud to be enhancing health and wellness efforts by offering the COVID-19 Vaccination to those eligible.  

Additionally, if it is your time to receive the vaccination, be sure to follow health and safety protocol when it is appointment day.

Just 70 square miles, Aruba is a small gem basking in the warmth of the southern Caribbean. However, it is not only the bright sunshine, turquoise water, and white sand that make Aruba sparkle; it is the multifaceted blend of over 90 different nationalities among over 110 thousand residents living happily together.

Aruba's diverse people are known for their warm, friendly, and welcoming nature. They are inclusive of newcomers, and their sunny dispositions radiate throughout the island, earning Aruba's well-coined slogan "one happy island."

In addition to Aruba's "happy" reputation, an unmistakable beauty and richness originate from its history, culture, architecture, music, art, handmade crafts and jewelry, and weekly Carrubian Festival.  

From Aruba's ancient Caquetio Indian roots, to its Spanish and Dutch rule, to its modern-day standing as a constituent country of the Netherlands, Aruba's history dates back centuries (aruba.com). Rock drawings and carvings created by the Caquetios can still be seen at Fontein Cave in Arikok National Park and at the Ayo Rock Formation. Their unique patterns and designs continue to influence Aruba's art, architecture, currency, fabric, and jewelry. They even can be found on T-shirts!

The bright and colorful Dutch architecture adds an artful, upbeat flare.
