'OUTWEIGH ANY RISK'
The report published today found most people had "mild and short lasting" side effects that reflect "a normal immune response to vaccines – including a sore arm and fatigue".
The most frequently reported side effects are injection-site tenderness and pain, headaches, fatigue, joint and muscle pain, fever, chills and nausea.
There were also 75 reports of facial paralysis or paresis from people after having both vaccines, the report found.
This is listed as a possible side effect due to a small number of reports in trials, but has not been confirmed as linked to the jabs.
Dr Philip Bryan, vaccines safety lead at MHRA, added on the deaths: "Another cause or reason was involved in their death and we do follow them all up.
"Deaths after vaccinations can worry people but it's really important that as we put this out into the public domain people understand what they mean and what they don't mean.
"They don't raise alarms in the numbers but also in the cases."
