Information about the side effects of the PREVNAR 13® vaccine.

Because PREVNAR 13® is given by injection, some of the most common side effects reported in clinical trials were injection-site reactions: redness, swelling, pain at the injection site, and limitation of arm movement.

Other side effects include:

  • fatigue
  • muscle pain
  • joint pain
  • chills
  • headache
  • vomiting
  • decreased appetite
  • rash
  • fever

PREVNAR 13® should not be given to anyone with a severe allergic reaction to any component of PREVNAR 13® or any diphtheria toxoid–containing vaccine. Adults with weakened immune systems (eg HIV infection, leukemia) may have a reduced immune response.

Patients should always ask their doctors for medical advice about adverse events. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of vaccines to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
