Between innings, Gurriel Jr. felt nauseous and vomited in a dugout washroom, Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo told reporters after the game. Montoyo added that he wasn't aware Gurriel Jr., who received his vaccination in recent days, was feeling unwell prior to the game.
It is not known at this time whether Gurriel Jr. will be added to the COVID-19 related IL or not, and his availability for the weekend will depend on how he feels Saturday.
Some individuals have reported adverse effects after COVID-19 vaccinations, most of which involve mild soreness at the site of injection or a slight fever, according to Health Canada.
The Canadian government says of the 5,897,445 vaccine doses that have been administered in the country as of April 2, side effects have only been reported by 3,089 people.
Health Canada says the benefits of vaccines continue to outweigh the risks.
Prior to the game, the Blue Jays announced pitcher Ryan Borucki was placed on the injured list due to side effects from a novel coronavirus vaccination.
Slugger Teoscar Hernandez was also placed on the IL following an exposure to a positive COVID-19 case with a close contact outside of the team.
