What are the side effects of the COVID vaccination?

Dr Hilary Jones was on hand to reassure Piers – and viewers at home – that the reaction was entirely normal.

Hilary said: “Most people might get a slight reaction at the injection site so some redness, some heat, some warmth a bit of tenderness probably last a few hours. Certainly gone overnight.

“That’s not uncommon at all, and that’s common with any vaccination,” he added.

They said it was very efficient, very quick, very painless, all very happy. My mum then got quite a bad reaction to her jab.

He went on to explain other side effects that have been associated with the vaccination.

“The second thing people are reporting is a bit of fatigue, headache, muscle pains, that might last a bit longer. Some people getting chills and a very slight temperature.

“Up to 50% people are getting fatigue for a few hours, maybe 24 hours,” Hilary revealed.

Piers’ parents had coronavirus last year

The GMB host revealed via Twitter that Gabrielle and Glynne were both being vaccinated against the virus.

It came after they both tested positive for the virus back in November.

Piers’ biological father Eamonn Vincent O’Meara tragically died in a road accident when Piers was just 11 months old.

The broadcaster took on his stepfather’s surname.
