Hi Guys,

My father is 60 years old, already having Type 2 Diabetes, BP and Neuro Pain. Already he is taking medicine of these from 5 years.


He took vaccine of COVAXIN and he didnt face any issue on 1st and 2nd day. But from 3rd day (99.2 F)  he got fever, and on 4th day its 102, after taking DOLO 650 it lowered to 98.3 and again next day its 100. It keeps varying from 98.3 to 102. in 5 days. Today is 5th day, still having fever of 100.

Over the phone we talked to a doctor, and he prescribed all the covid19 medicine (zinc, c, Azithromycin, Montair Lc, doxy etc). Here in Patna, there lots of rush at the RTPCR test center and nobody is providing home test. So kindly help me guys. My some friends are saying 2 days of fever is normal side effects. But he is having fever from 4 days.


He is looking weak now, not feeling to eat anything, we are giving dalia and khichdi, coconut water. And in medicine we are giving DOLO 2 times a day, zincovit, limcee. And other Diabetes, BP medicine already going on.


Is this side effect of COVAXIN or he got infected of Covid19 ? Kindly clear my doubt.

P.S: Oximeter levels are normal: 96-97

Fever is the common side effect of many things (COVID, Vaccine, ..)
Can’t say much.. if its just a fever

Get one oximeter (if don’t have it) and keep monitoring the oxygen saturation levels
and watch out for any signs of cough, sore throat & breathlessness

Hope things get better of him soon

Can’t say about COVAXIN, but one of my acquaintance had fever for one week after taking Covshield. He even had a lot of weakness. Now, he’s fine.

This might be normal for Covaxin and other vaccines too.

Please note that every vaccine is a kind of virus which is genetically modified to trigger your immune response (fever being one of them).

After taking covishield, my father had mild fever at 02:00 AM while he was asleep, he just took one dose of Paracetamol and now he’s fine.

Just give him enough Nutrition needed by his body to build immunity and he’ll be fine. As a precaution you can monitor his oxygen levels.

My parents and lot of neighbours nobody had any such issue at max low fewer on first 2 days.
Although in my dad’s office his one of coligue had similar issue after many days with no improvement and situation getting worse they admitted him to hospital where covid test was negative but still after ct-scan lot of chest infection(punomonia).
So for him can be side effect also but still keep other case in consideration also.

When you take an injection for some fever is common that’s why they give paracetamol in case if fever comes.

As your father has diabetes, you might have skipped the vaccine. As we still don’t know whether it is advisable to take or not or it has side effects for those who suffer from several health conditions.

Take care of him

We can’t tell buddy whether it is a side effect of vaccination or due to corona. Why don’t you touch with the government vaccine team, they might help as they have come across these type of issues. If fever still persists, better consult good doctor. My suggestion is we shouldn’t believe the dimer opinions as it is related to health. Only doctor can help us. Sorry if my words hurt, please excuse me. I wish everything will be fine.

The post is not either a suggestion nor a recommendation :

With all these tablets lever will act up so one can try these :

1. Eat peanut+choola dal combo in morning, daal+brown rice+curd at dinner and roti+curd at night
Logic is if you cut calory intake significantly then there’s very less use for diabetes tablets. If you want you can susitute rice and roti with banana.
2. Eat raw mango, ripe papaya at evening and morning time.
3. Drink lime juice mixed with watr and only a little rock salt.
4. Take Carmozyme Liquid twice daily.

Logic is all those fruits, plenty of water shall take care of the fever. Carmozyme is best at repairing lever function in on to two week.

Once due to Nimesulide tablets side effect I was having a too hard time back in 2014, I was hardly able to walk 100 feet, was unable to eat almost everything except fruits ( every cooked food was bitter like hell )… What I did was only on diet of olive, tamarind, pomelo, apple, banana, sour curd. In two weeks time I recovered with the good grace of god.

Keep monitoring the Spo2 levels.. the drop is usually very small but it is consistent (COVID+ patients). ~95 is normal, some say even 90+ is normal as these Spo2 levels keep fluctuating a lot
And 100+ Fever on 5th day is not very common. Talk to his doc (the one you guys consult w.r.t his pre-conditions) may be take paracetamol for 3-5 more days (You can even take 3 times a day based on your doc suggestion)

But if the fever still persists then its best to get him checked in a hospital
Also.. make sure he has no breathing issues,
Elders 60+ w/ pre-conditions show symptoms much earlier than the rest (if they got corona)

My mother had fever & weakness for like 10 days after it with temperature hovering around 99-101. Rest, plenty of water, a multi vitamin and paracetamol. Keep your and his spirits up. Don’t let him see your sad face. Chat/sit/story-tell/useless nothings.

My father has the same issue. He got his vaccine on 23rd and had a fever from the 3rd day onwards. I am not sure if he contracted COVID or if it is a side effect of the COVISHIELD vaccine. Just recorded 102 as his temperature. It is not easy to get an RT PCR test due to the unavailability of the testing kits. I talked to a few other people and they said to keep him on paracetamol of 650 mg (we have been giving him 500 mg so far). Keeping my fingers crossed.

6th day UPDATE : Today morning body temp is 98, and SpO2 is 93-95, but he has no breathing issue. Glucose level was very low 45, so gave him some jaggery.

But oxygen level is low, and no breathing issue. Even shouting so much that he is fine, and feeling only weakness bcz of low sugar. Previously not eating properly, only daliya. Is that the reason of low glucose and oxygen level ?

Good to know that body temperature is normal now
93-95 SpO2 is still Okay.. continue checking it (it should show 95+ some other times ?)
I don’t know much about low glucose levels

Without clarity on the Covid status, its best to monitor his oxygen levels for now, while trying to get rtpcr done. Also regularly monitor sugar and bp measurements.
1. For decreased oxygen saturation, try the prone ventilation.
2. Make him follow proper diet. Keep him rehydrated and well fed, according to his diabetic and bp status.

Most importantly- Do NOT let his sugar levels go down so low. Strict monitoring for that. Sudden Low Sugar (Hypoglycemia) is far far far more dangerous and deadly than a spike of high sugar..

@getready hypoglycemia can be dangerous, especially neurological damage, within hours.

Hey, glad to hear that the body temp is ok. Do you mind sharing how you brought his body temp down? I think your father and my father are kind of have the same trajectory as far as the symptoms go.

Here is what seems to be working for my father right now. Gave him paracetamol 650 mg as 500 mg wasn’t doing the job. His temperature is now hovering around 99 after 4 hours down from 101 at 4.30 am. Our doctor advised us to keep giving him paracetamol every 4-6 hours.

His oxygen level at 4.30 am was 93/94 but then he slept for an hour on his stomach and around 6.30-7am the levels shot back to 97.

Yes vaccine side effect
70-80% of vaccinated people shows no side effect
12-18% of 1-2 days fever
2-5% of very high side effect like weakness, fever, exasperation,etc for more than 15 days.
I have seen this in my village

I am doing the same for him, DOLO 650 x2 times a day.(plus other medicines still going on of Sugar+BP+neuro) Only thing, he is very weak now , trying to giving him a proper food like oats, fruits, roti, rice etc. But he is not eating whole plate, not feeling to eat. Also giving him desi home made KAADHA.

Your doubts have already been answered and good to know that his condition is also quite better.
As it’s 6th day, and nobody else has showed the symptoms so much likely it was vaccination effect only.

@mas143forever already emphasized the risk with hypoglycemia….take care of that.

Keep monitoring the oxygen saturation. Proning and deep breating exercises should help.

Is your dad on inj.insulin ???
Then pls reduce dose we don’t know what medications he is on for sugar and bp.(because he is not taking the regular carbohydrates he used to take before these symptoms)
His weakness and other complaints are mainly due to hypoglycemia if I am not wrong.

These symptoms are suggestive of mild infection if at all it’s covid so don’t worry he will be fine in a week

Dolo 650 is heavy dose .
Take any paracetamol 500 mg
Refrain from any steroids doxy etc or any other medicine on anyones recommendations .
Give healthy food ,vegetables ,fruits .
Remain in contact with good or family doctor and take there advice.
Refrain from Jhola chaap and Whatsapp Doctors.

And don’t forget to follow covid etiquette as he is low on immune system as of now due to vaccination and its sideeffect

some docs from relatives are forcing to take DOXY, AZITHROMYCIN, MONTAIR LC. And to have all those test- CBC, LFT, FERRATIN, D DIMER, CRP. I dont know why these medicine to be taken if he is only having fever. And also they are saying more than 5 days fever is sign of covid.

Btw, tomorrow home collection of RTPCR is coming. After that I will take other test too and all medicines

Praying that your dad is all fine.

Suggest to avoid any antibiotics or strong medicines until a diagnosis has been done. It might eventually backfire if he keeps taking them without a diagnosis and suggestion from a proper doctor.

I think the reason for prescribing other medicines is to ensure that things don’t get worse in case other symptoms arise. It is possible that his cough may get worse or it may be a bacterial infection.

Tests other than the RT-PCR are overkill.
