I don't anticipate the reaction will continue to get worse, but instead be very similar now that the body knows that the spike protein made by mRNA is an invader that it needs to destroy. For the most part, the side effects are a good sign that the immune system is working as it is supposed to by making you feel bad enough where you rest while it does what it's supposed to do. As I'm sure you're aware, the immune system raises your body temperature (fever) in order to create an environment where the virus is uncomfortable and can't replicate as quickly. You get pain at the injection site because the immune system creates inflammation in order to try and protect you from the foreign substance. That's my non-scientific understanding, anyway.If the virus becomes endemic I'm just wondering what it might mean for people who are not reacting well to the second dose.
Like if the reaction gets worse with each subsequent dose then maybe lots of ppl can't take the covid vaccine yearly?
