Thanks for asking,
First of all I would like tell you that this vaccine has nothing with headache or pain neither these things are that much serious, sometimes vaccine can produce pain at the site of injection if pain is not bearable you can consult a physician for it . there should not be any problem in taking other two doses of vaccines as well.
Take care.
