As more and more Australians roll up their sleeves for their CoVID-19 booster shots, reports of a side effect in particular are on the rise.
Most people who have received their first two doses of the CoVID-19 vaccine are aware of some of the side effects that may occur after the injection.
Some common side effects include pain at the injection site, fatigue, fever and chills, and headache.
However, the most common adverse side effect of the third dose of the CoVID-19 vaccine appears to be swelling of the lymph nodes.
Lymph nodes or lymph glands are small lumps of tissue that contain white blood cells that can help fight infection by attacking and destroying germs that pass through the lymph fluid.
There are hundreds of lymph nodes throughout the body, including the neck, armpits, chest, abdomen, and waist.
