Arm pain is
one of the most common side effects of receiving a Coronavirus vaccine, especially in the first hours or days after vaccination.
According to doctors, the vaccines are given with an amount of fluid in the muscles, and there is not much space for this fluid, and the muscle fibers in which the vaccine is injected expand, which may be painful and take a while for the pain to decrease, to a large extent similar to a bruise in the muscles.
To relieve arm pain after the vaccine, the following tips can be followed:
1- Moving the arm.
2- Cooling the injection area with a clean cloth dampened in cold water.
3- Drink plenty of fluids.
4- Take a break.
