Do vaccinations make you sick?
Most of us must have received vaccinations when we were kids as these are supposed to protect us from some deadly diseases. Vaccinations use our body's natural defense system to specific diseases and make our immune system stronger. Some people believe that vaccinations make a person sick. And with the development of the Covid-19 vaccine, this myth is now spreading even faster. But is this true?
Science Facts: Vaccines contains killed and weakened forms of germs but it does not cause the disease or put us at risk of getting it. Often right after you are vaccinated, fever, fatigue, body ache are some common side-effects observed for 2-3 days.
