ORLANDO, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – New research from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that people who receive Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine might experience more side effects than those who get Pfizer/BioNTech’s vaccine.
The agency’s findings come from a study published in the online journal JAMA.
Researchers gathered data from December 2020 to February 2021 from CDC’s V-Safe surveillance system, which monitors and reports adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccines through self-reporting surveys.
The data revealed that 75% of Moderna recipients reported side effects after getting one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine compared to 65% of the Pfizer/BioNTech recipients. Side effects included pain at the injection site, fatigue and headaches.
