Young people get a stronger immune response to the corona vaccine more often than older people. They must expect some of the common side effects, according to the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

Everyone over the age of 18 will be offered a vaccine during the summer. Young adults experience the usual side effects more often, especially after dose two of Moderna and Pfizer’s mRNA vaccines, the Norwegian Medicines Agency wrote on Tuesday.

“This can be troublesome, but it is expected. The side effects usually go away after a few days,” the Agency noted.

Some of the side effects young people can expect to get 1-2 days after vaccination are as follows:

* Swelling around the puncture site and the arm

* Fatigue

* Headache

* Fever

* Pain in muscles and joints

* Nausea and diarrhea

If you get other symptoms that you think are connected to the vaccine, or if the symptoms do not go away after a few days, you should contact a doctor or other health professional for advice, the National Institute of Public Health noted on Tuesday.

  1. “if the symptoms do not go away after a few days,”

    Can they be lifelong, like the narcolepsy afflicting 100+ people who were vaccinated with the adjuvant variant of the swine flu vaccine in 2009?
