Dr. Frank McGeorge shares experience after receiving COVID-19 vaccine, identifies side effects

DETROIT – A new and important program helps the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Federal Food and Drug Administration to identify any adverse reactions to COVID-19 as soon as possible.

Dr. Frank McGeorge, local 4, recalled his experience getting the Pfizer vaccine recently and continued to make suggestions on Monday.

Speaking about his experience with the COVID-19 vaccine, McGeorge said: “The last time I was in the air on Thursday night, I received the vaccine about three hours before and I was feeling well. Then, about two hours later, five hours after the shooting, I felt my arm being hit by a hammer and lasted about a day. I haven’t had any other side effects, so in my experience, I’d just say you don’t intend to do weights for a day. “

Regardless of the vaccine you receive, the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, everyone who receives a vaccine should register with the CDC after a V-safe health check, McGeorge suggested.

It is a smartphone-based tool that sends you a text message when it’s time to register and report any symptoms or side effects. They ask for your name, phone number, date of birth, gender and zip code.

Once a day, in the first week, you will receive a daily reminder link that will take you to a page where you can report any symptoms. After the first week you will receive a text once a week for five weeks.

According to the CDC, starting at 13:00 on Sunday, 556,208 doses of vaccine were administered. More than 10 times the number of people in the original Pfizer test, making it the best opportunity to quickly identify any new problems.
