2. Side Effects of Vaccination
Side effects of vaccination typically occur in around 10-percent of patients who choose the injection type vaccine. There may be swelling and redness around the injection site for a few days and the person may experience mild symptoms of headache and muscle ache for a day or so after infection. A low fever, fatigue, and stomach ache are also common side effects of the injection vaccine.
The tablet form of the vaccine produces side effects in less than 7-percent of patients, with similar symptoms to those provided by the injection. In both cases, the symptoms should subside on their own in a few days as the body’s immune system eradicates the disease and gains immunity to the bacteria.
Speak to your doctor before committing to either type of vaccine. The tablet form of the drug may seem like the route to go for those patients afraid of needles. However, this form of the vaccine is more likely to cause complications with any medications you’re currently using. Speak to your physician for advice.
