Comment:
Severe swelling which needed to de drained. Immediately after shots I had the worst headaches I have ever had, they lasted for about two weeks. I am worse off now than before the shots. I also felt "not to good overall" very tired, feverish, etc for about two weeks. Side effects for me were pretty bad, never again.
