Hi, I’m Dr Mark Wenitong.

Let’s talk about the COVID-19 vaccine and side effects.

Yes, some people get mild side effects from the jab, like headaches.

And there is a small risk of more serious side effects, like heart inflammation.

But it’s very, very rare.

Its way better, and safer to get the jab.

It helps stop you getting very sick or even dying.

And if you’re all vaccinated, the virus will have a harder time spreading in your community.

To find out more have a yarn with your local health care worker.
