I was sick for about 4 days after the first dose. I got the second dose and felt mostly ok the next day- until later that afternoon. Then I had a rough night, but was okay the next morning. It seems to be different for everybody.

According to my friend, her arm felt really sore. She got Pfizer. The area where she got got injected at felt really sensitive. She couldn't even touch or lean on it but she could move her arm around. She felt fine the whole weekend (got the first dose on Saturday morning). Decided to do house cleaning on Monday and started to feel the side effects (fatigue) before going to bed. I'm guessing the side effects had a bit of a delay? She's worried about having COVID. Hasn't said anything about breathing problems, loss of taste/smell, or fever. The symptoms she reports seem to be aligned with getting the vaccine.

I'm still dealing with shoulder pain (SIRVA) after the first shot. I started feeling bad (like a bad hangover) that night but it only lasted about 24 hours. I got the second shot and had no side effects. I may need to see my doctor about the shoulder pain. I got the Pfizer vaccine both times.

I had Moderna March 3rd. No effects at all. Not even a sore arm. (I'm 67.)

I had the second dose March 31st. Sore arm and a lump around the injection site. Four days later I developed mild headaches. Ibuprofen for 1.5 days.

Now I seem okay again.

Well worth it for the peace of mind.

I got the first dose of Moderna. My arm was so sore I couldn't even lift it for a day or so. I also got the chills twice. The first time it woke me up in the middle of the night with shaking while under a down blanket with the heater on. I'm scared to get the second dose now later this month. Some people get really sick for three or four days while others are totally fine so maybe I'll get lucky.

I was reading the vaccine passport stuff. It suggests we may have to have four vaccines a year for boosters and variants. Nobody is going to want to get that many vaccines a year if it hurts this much. I mean I get that it's better than possibly dying but OUCH!

My wife and I both received the first dose of Moderna and nothing but sore arms for a day or two. We were told side effects are can be more likely with the second dose.

There is no evidence that boosters will be needed every four months. Pfizer has six month data with better than 90% effectiveness for its vaccine and no evidence that it is waning.
