Two-loop corrections to the pole mass of the vector boson and the pole masses and the magnetic moments of fermions are calculated in the framework of an effective field theory of massive Yang-Mills fields interacting with fermions. It is shown that the limit of vanishing vector boson mass is finite for all these quantities. Implications of the obtained results are discussed.
