In brief: Very!!
Although side effects can occur, such as fever, soreness, occasional achiness, and theoretically very rare more serious problems, it is much safer than being infected with the potential side effects of the infection, up to and including death! immunize, immunize, immunize.

In brief: Very safe
If it weren't extremely safe, we wouldn't recommend that everyone get one.
