- Females and young adults are at an increased risk of suffering from side effects after COVID-19 vaccinations. People who take three doses as compared to two may present different side effects, a Japanese study finds.
- The study published on Scientific Reports in November studied 272 hospital employees who received the Pfizer vaccine as a second dose between January to June 2022.
The authors found different side effects were linked with different doses, and the side effects after third dose tend to be more long-lasting and severe compared to the second dose.
