David Wohl, MD, featured in a CBS-17 news report about vaccine side effects.

If you’ve received a COVID-19 vaccine you’re more than likely among the millions of Americans who have experienced some sort of side effects, reports CBS-17. According to the CDC, side effects are a sign that the body is building immunity, but people should call their doctor if the symptoms don’t go away after a few days. And, as more people receive the vaccine, researchers are noticing a trend.

Duke Regional Hospital’s Ada Ross, MD, explained that young people tend to have more side effects than older people and people over 55 appear to have less of these side effects.

David Wohl, MD, professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases, said he’s looking for “something highly out of the ordinary” and “something that’s just not right.” This could be when someone can’t get out of bed and it’s been more than a day. “Those are the types of things I’d be worried about,” Wohl said.
