Post-COVID Vaccine advice from Nurse Rachel:
As many Lockwood kids start receiving the COVID vaccine, we reached out to our school nurse for some advice on what to do if normal vaccine symptoms appear the day of or after receiving the vaccine. Here's the advice:
If students are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms at school and have been vaccinated 1-3 days prior, students will NOT be sent home or asked to obtain any Covid testing if symptoms appear to be side effects from recent vaccination. If symptoms progress beyond the expected time for vaccine-related side effects, students will be asked to obtain testing or alternative diagnosis. Nurses will be asking if a student has recently received a Covid-19 vaccination as part of our assessment for a student with symptoms. Side effects may include:
Side Effects, COVID Vaccination:
Children given the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine had side effects like those experienced by people aged 16 and older. The most commonly reported side effects include:
Pain where the shot was given
Similar to adults, children have side effects that typically last 1 to 3 days. More adolescents reported these side effects, except for injection site pain, after the second dose of the vaccine. However, many people have no side effects.
