Can you take paracetamol after having the Covid vaccine?

According to the latest Government figures, 3,857,266 people in the UK have received their first dose of the Covid vaccine leading up to January 16, 2021. A further 449,736 people have also already received their second dose of the vaccine. Vaccine rollout continues in the UK with the Pfizer/BioNTech, Oxford/AstraZeneca and Moderna coronavirus vaccines all approved for use in the UK.

When will everyone be vaccinated in the UK?

In the UK, Covid vaccinations are currently being offered based on the priority list set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

At the top of the priority list are residents in care homes and their carers, followed by people over the age of 80 and frontline health and social care workers.

Currently, the Covid vaccine is being distributed to people in these groups at some hospitals and pharmacies.

Mr Raab told BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show: “The plan is to get the first 15 million most vulnerable people vaccinated with the first dose by the middle of February.

“We then want to get, by early spring, another 17 million.

“At that point we’ll have 99 percent of those most at risk of dying of coronavirus administered their first jab, and then the entire adult population we want being offered a first jab by September. That’s the roadmap.”

He added: “Obviously if it can be done more swiftly than that, then that’s a bonus.”

Can you take paracetamol after having the Covid vaccine?

The NHS website states most of the side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine are mild and should not last longer than a week.

Side effects include a sore arm where the needle went in, tiredness, headache, feeling achy, and feeling or being sick.

The NHS website states: “You can take painkillers, such as paracetamol, if you need to.”
