Meanwhile, the survey showed that side effects among the majority of respondents did not last more than 24 hours after vaccination.

“As many as 37% (1,225) of respondents said their symptoms did not last more than a day, while 31% showed their symptoms persisted for 48 hours. Only 6% stated that their symptoms lasted more than 2 days,” wrote the researchers again.

Ex president Indian Medical AssociationRajeev Jayadevan, one of the study’s researchers, said the survey proves that vaccines are safe and there is no need to worry about hurting the body.

“If more than 5,000 people who are vaccinated report no serious problems, then that is a pretty big guarantee that the general public can get the vaccine,” said Jayadevan.

Another key finding from this survey is the linear correlation between age and symptoms post vaccination, which suggests that reactogenicity decreases with age.
