Reporting side effects from a COVID-19 vaccine

The most common side effects after COVID-19 vaccination are usually mild and include:

  • pain, redness and/or swelling at the injection site
  • headache
  • fatigue
  • muscle and/or joint ache
  • mild fever.

When they occur, these symptoms typically start within 24 hours of vaccination, last one to two days, and resolve without treatment.

If you are concerned about your symptoms you should seek advice from your doctor.

If you believe your reaction is severe or life-threatening you should call triple zero (000) for an ambulance or go to your closest emergency department.

Any reactions that are causing you concern, whether minor or serious, should be reported to the Western Australian Vaccine Safety Surveillance (WAVSS) system (external site). Your immunisation provider, GP or other health professional should report all suspected significant reactions, but you can also do it yourself on the WAVSS reporting website (external site) (www.safevac.org.au).
