What to expect when you attend Essex House for the Covid-19 vaccination

Patients will be invited to make an appointment when they are eligible to receive the vaccination. Until you have been invited, please do not contact the Surgery.

Please wear a face covering when attending for the Covid-19 vaccination.

Please do not attend if:

  • You currently have Covid-19 or have tested positive in the last 28 days.

For more information on what to expect following receiving the vaccination please read the PHE Information sheet.

Please read this information prior to attending. The vaccination team will not have time to go through this with you.

Side effects

What are the side effects?

Like all medicines, vaccines can cause side effects. Most of these are mild and short term, and not everyone gets them.

Very common side effects include:

  • having a painful, heavy feeling and tenderness in the arm where you had your injection. This tends to be worst around 1-2 days after the vaccine.
  • feeling tired
  • headache
  • general aches, or mild flu-like symptoms

Although feeling feverish is not uncommon for two to three days, a high temperature is unusual and may indicate you have COVID-19 or another infection.

An uncommon side effect is swelling of the glands. You can rest and take the normal dose of paracetamol (follow the advice in the packaging) to help make you feel better.

These symptoms normally last less than a week. If your symptoms seem to get worse or if you are concerned, contact the Surgery. If you do seek advice from a doctor or nurse, make sure you tell them about your vaccination so that they can assess you properly.

You can also report suspected side effects of vaccines and medicines through the Yellow Card scheme.

You can do this online by visiting the Coronavirus Yellow Card or by downloading the Yellow Card app.


Other Covid Vaccines
