Spring is here! And so are COVID vaccinations. So now were looking at a virus, vaccination side effects, and your typical spring allergies all at once. According to FoxNews.com, Dr. Fred Lewis says that paying attention to if you have a fever is the first step. If it’s allergies you won’t have a fever, but you might feel itchy. Itchiness won’t be a side effect of the vaccine or COVID itself.
Allergies and COVID both have coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue, headaches, sore throats, and runny noses all in common. Symptoms that could be telling it’s something more than your typical allergies and potentially COVID include: fever, chills, muscle aches, lose of smell, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Side effects from the vaccination have mainly been reported as pain in the arm, fatigue, and headaches. These effects will go away quickly, COVID or allergies will be longer lasting. Still, the best thing to do if you’re unsure is get yourself a COVID test.
