Finally, should I still get tested if I feel unwell after receiving the COVID-19 vaccines?
Yes. So this is a question we're being asked a lot. So, we've been saying over the last year that if you experience symptoms of fever or respiratory tract infection, flu, cold please arrange to get tested for COVID-19. Now, we do know that some people after they receive the COVID-19 vaccine may experience mild side effects. Of course, you may get pain or redness or swelling at the site of the injection, but also for the next day or two you may feel a little bit feverish, tired, or achy as a side effect of the vaccine. If that happens, at this time, you don't need to get a COVID-19 test. But if you have symptoms like that, and you also have a runny nose, or a sore throat, or a cough, or difficulty breathing, that could definitely be COVID-19, and you should be getting a test."
