Introduction: Vaccines are one of the most effective interventions for destroying COVID-19. Many organizations
have worked to establish an efficient and safe preparation in the minimum time possible. Currently, several
products that different in form and effectiveness are approved for sale.
Objectives: The goal of this study was to obtain evidence on COVID-19 vaccination adverse effects.
Methodology: A cross-sectional study was made between October and December 2021 to obtain data on the
influence of the COVID-19 vaccine among people in the Iraq- Basrah. There were two types of questions listed.
The first one covers the subject’s background information, such as nationality, gender, age, educational level, and
past COVID 19 infection. The second set of questions focused on information about the COVID-19 vaccines and
their side effects.
Result: Local site adverse reaction, Hypersensitivity reaction, bone and muscle pain, headache and fever were
more common in persons received second dose than in participant received first dose. There was a significant
difference in the number of people those under 60 years of age who reported fever, headache, bone and muscle
pain compared to those 60 years old and over.
conclusion: The COVID-19 vaccine’s side effects are similar to those seen with earlier immunizations, and the
most of them are tolerable.
