'Tiny' number of reports of strong side effects from second vaccine dose compared to number administered, says GHA

The number of cases of strong side effects from the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine reported to the Health Authority is "tiny" compared to the number of vaccinations so far.

This is according to the GHA's Acting Medical Director, Dr Krish Rawal, who told GBC some side-effects are to be expected. Dr Rawal added that the GHA is recording all the reactions people report.
