ShA study published on the platform medRxivHe suggests that side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine may mean that the body is preparing for a more robust and effective immune response.
Researchers at the University of California in the United States monitored the occurrence of negative events in 363 individuals, for a period of six days, after they were vaccinated with doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine. Participants received kits to record temperature, heart rate, and breathing. In addition, volunteers underwent periodic tests to measure the levels of antibodies produced. The study was conducted in the first year of vaccination against Covid-19.

After the second dose, people who developed symptoms such as chills, fatigue, malaise and headache showed an increase of up to 160% in the levels of neutralizing antibodies produced. Each side effect corresponds to an increase in the number of neutralizing antibodies.
A one-degree increase in temperature was associated with three times higher antibody levels after six months.
