Some of the SpikoGen® side effects may be similar to COVID-19 symptoms, like fever, shivering, muscle ache, and sore throat. However, if these symptoms last longer than three days or you have other persistent symptoms like cough and dyspnea, this might not be due to SpikoGen®’s side effects. You should seek medical advice to rule out COVID-19.

SpikoGen® may cause allergic reactions in rare cases. Visit a health care center and tell your doctor if you experience swollen face, lips, tongue, or throat, itching, or difficulty breathing after SpikoGen® injection.
