Welcome to RK Medical Practice
We are trying to get through inviting our patients who are due their second vaccine, please bear with us and you will be invited as soon as we possibly can, new results have shown that, the longer the vaccine is left between 1st and 2nd dose that it is more efficient, now your 2nd dose should be no earlier than 11 weeks, from date of first dose.
Finally, should I still get tested if I feel unwell after receiving the COVID-19 vaccines?
Yes. So this is a question we're being asked a lot. So, we've been saying over the last year that if you experience symptoms of fever or respiratory tract infection, flu, cold please arrange to get tested for COVID-19. Now, we do know that some people after they receive the COVID-19 vaccine may experience mild side effects. Of course, you may get pain or redness or swelling at the site of the injection, but also for the next day or two you may feel a little bit feverish, tired, or achy as a side effect of the vaccine. If that happens, at this time, you don't need to get a COVID-19 test. But if you have symptoms like that, and you also have a runny nose, or a sore throat, or a cough, or difficulty breathing, that could definitely be COVID-19, and you should be getting a test."
