Most common Covid-19 vaccine side effects and vaccination aftercare

For months, reports have trickled in about weird symptoms of COVID-19. There was COVID toes, unusual skin rashes, and loss of taste and smell, which later became an "official" symptom of the virus. Now there's a new one to keep on the back burner: COVID tongue, which is with bumps, along with inflammation and swelling. 

We also had a patient called in yesterday for acupuncture for the swollen tongue after vaccination. and Jarry (R.Ac)  had a patient who got Bell's Palsy after second dose  vaccine.

Seek immediate medical attention if you have serious symptoms. Always call before visiting your doctor or health facility. For mild symptoms, acupuncture can always help to relief headache, fatigue, muscle pain, Bell's palsy etc. More info about COVID-19 vaccination aftercare
