Children and adolescents from 12 to 17 years old

For children and adolescents ages 12 to 17 , the most commonly reported side effects after receiving the first two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine are:

•Tiredness

•Fever

•Headache

•Pain in the arm where the injection was given

Possible side effects after receiving the booster dose

The reactions reported after receiving the booster dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine were similar to the reactions after the first two doses (ie, main vaccination schedule). In general, most side effects were mild to moderate. However, as with the main regimen, serious side effects are rare but can occur.

Help manage post-vaccination side effects

In general,  the use of aspirin is not recommended  in children under 18 years of age. Aspirin puts children at risk for Reyes syndrome, which can cause inflammation in the brain and liver. Placing a cool, wet cloth on the area of your arm where you received the injection may ease discomfort.
