ABSTRACT

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID- 19) is an illness caused by a novel coronavirus called severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus -2 (SARS-CoV-2). Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations and death. COVID- 19 vaccination programme has been started in India. There is paucity of real-world data available regarding post COVID vaccination side effects. In this study we aimed to determine post vaccination side effects and experience in hilly state of India. Aims and objectives: To assess experience of participants regarding COVID-19 vaccination at government designated centres. To determine the post vaccination side effects profile occurring within 72 hours Material and Methods: We examined self-reported post vaccination symptoms and experience using google meet forms (online survey). Results: A total of 902 people responded to the survey over 2 months from May to June 2021. Overall, 18% of respondents reported at least one post covid vaccination symptom occurring within 72 hours. Post-vaccination symptoms were more reported by women (20.48 %) compared to men (13.6%) The most common symptoms reported were myalgia followed by fever, headache, pain at the injection site, chills, sore throat and diarrhoea. 60% of lactating women reported side effects. Conclusion: As per our online survey, 18 percent of the participants reported post vaccination side effects. No serious adverse effect was reported after first dose of vaccine.
