    Post-COVID-19 Vaccine symptom relief checklist


    Side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine such as pain, discomfort, fever, or itchiness are normal. Your Rite Aid pharmacist can help answer any questions about your COVID-19 vaccination or products that can relieve symptoms.




    Pain & Fever

    After your appointment, take over-the-counter pain relievers / fever reducers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen




    Find itch relief with an antihistamine





    Stay hydrated with an electrolyte solution




    Arm Discomfort

    Reduce discomfort with a cool compress or cold pack


    Call your doctor if redness or tenderness in the injection area worsens after 24 hours, or if side effects last more than a few days. If you think you might be having a severe allergic reaction, seek immediate medical care by calling 911. Here’s more information from the CDC about what to do if you have an allergic reaction.
