Doctors from the American Medical Association have warned about the potential negative side effects of the Covid-19 vaccines.
Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association warned that many patients will experience intense and unpleasant side effects associated with the Covid-19 vaccines, such as a debilitating headache, nausea, chills and a fever.
She noted that both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccines require at least two doses at varying intervals. As a practicing physician, she said she worries whether her patients will come back for a second dose because of the potentially unpleasant side effects they may experience after the first shot.
During a virtual meeting with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, or ACIP, she said: “We really need to make patients aware that this is not going to be a walk in the park.
 “They are going to know they had a vaccine. They are probably not going to feel wonderful. But they’ve got to come back for that second dose.”
Participants in Moderna and Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine trials told CNBC in September that they were experiencing high fever, body aches, bad headaches, daylong exhaustion and other symptoms after receiving the shots.
Both companies acknowledged that their vaccines could induce side effects that are similar to symptoms associated with mild Covid-19, such as muscle pain, chills and headache.
Some patients complained of getting day long migraines that left them unable to focus.
One nurse practitioner based in Minnesota, Patsy Stinchfield, said officials and drugmakers could try talking about the side effects in a more positive way. She said they could use language such as “response” instead of “adverse reaction.”
An advisory committee meeting to review the vaccine has been scheduled for early December. Some people could get their first dose of the vaccine in about a month.
