I'm having a side affect after taking the vaccine?

Hi! I'm 22 and I got a second dose of Sinopharm coronavirus vaccine 6 days ago and I still have fever, my body temperature is 37.2°c. And I'm sure that I didn't get coronavirus. I just have a fever and my muscles hurt.

I would still monitor you with supportive care. We can consult blood work and covid test if no relief after 10 days.
Thank you for getting your coronavirus vaccine. That is super helpful to both you as well as your community. As for what you are experiencing. From what you have stated it sounds like one of the common side effects. The temperature you listed is not considered a true fever but may be an elevated temperature for you. This is common after vaccinations. Most will only last a couple days after but it can take longer for it to be your normal temperature as long as it’s not a true fever. A true fever is defined at 38 degrees Celsius or 100.4 degrees F. The muscle aches are common and many can experience this for several days. I recommend staying hydrated as this often helps. If you have no other medical problems taking some ibuprofen and/or Tylenol is ok to help with the aches. I hope this helps.
