The second Covid-19 vaccination may cause fewer side effects compared to the first jab, Chulalongkorn University's Centre of Excellence in Vaccine Research and Development director Kiat Rakrungtham said on Sunday.

He said only one of 1 million people have side effects due to the Covid-19 jab.

"The vaccine's side effects are fever, aching muscle and pain in the spot where the jab was given," he said.

He added that the vaccine will give maximum protection to people after receiving the second dose.

"Until then people still have to undergo measures to contain the spread of Covid-19, such as wearing face mask, washing hands and maintaining social distance," he added.
