Reporting COVID-19 vaccine side effects makes a difference: CDC

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is tracking vaccine side effects through a mobile app. V-safe is a tool that can be accessed using a smartphone and allows users to track their health after getting the vaccine and communicate any side effects to the CDC. Anyone who has been vaccinated within the last six weeks can participate, according to CDC.
