New Covid Vaccine Side Effect

New Covid Vaccine Side Effect

Liz Nelson, staff

The new covid vaccines have been saving thousands of lives, but some people have been noticing a side effect. Enlarged lymph nodes have been appearing on the armpit or collarbone, it is a harmless effect of the vaccine that goes away within a few weeks, but some have been mistaking it for cancer. Indeed, the white blob on a chest examination for cancerous tumors has been terrifying patients needlessly. However, doctors have been publishing more and more studies to put those who do experience the side effect at ease. This has been especially horrifying for patients who recently finished treatment for cancer that eventually went away. But as the side effect is becoming more common, people have been relaxing and continuing to get vaccinated. Doctors have been advised to ask if the patient has been vaccinated recently and patients have been advised only to call the doctor about the lump if it lasts more than 6 weeks.
