Vitamin C is recommended to have approximately 500 to 1000mg daily (2,000mg max). If you go above 2,000mg, you may have some side effects. They are usually gastrointestinal. It might be diarrhea, nausea, cramps, headaches. If you're going to start taking high doses of Vitamin C as a prophylactic, just remember that some of the side effects can mimic some of the early signs of COVID-19.
