Finally, the COVID-19 vaccine is available. It was long overdue. However, with the lack of coordination, and no vaccination strategy in place, people have become frustrated, as they don’t know when they would get the vaccination.
In the United States, a chaotic vaccine distribution process has further added to the agitation of the people. Some people are made to wait in long queues for their turn.
Those who have not been vaccinated yet are watching the updates on TV and are surfing over the web about the latest updates. This has further added to their frustration when they see others vaccinated and roaming free outside.
In such a scenario, envy and frustration are logical according to psychologists and they think that it can be emotionally devastating. Those who have not been vaccinated yet are feeling left out and excluded.
At the same time, many people are undecided because they are willing to prevent infection through vaccination. They fear that vaccination may have potential side effects on the other.
They doubt whether the new vaccine is safe given the rapid development speed and whether there have been sufficient chances of possible side effects.
There might be some reactions after the vaccination: such as redness and swelling or slight pain may appear. The days after vaccination, fatigue, fever, headache, pain in limbs, etc. are also normal, and most of the reactions are mild and disappear after a few days.
In addition to those typical vaccination reactions, there will be sporadic and sometimes serious side effects after vaccination, such as allergies.
Some typical vaccination reactions such as fatigue and headache occurred in elderly patients less frequently and to a lesser degree.
According to some reports, 9.7% of the subjects experienced fatigue reactions. There is no knowledge about the possible long-term consequences of individual vaccines.
