Got Pfizer #1 on Apr 4, no side effects, not even a sore arm and have not turned into a zombie nor felt compelled to build a shrine to Bill Gates.

Some say it's the 2nd one that causes some issues, will report back after my 2nd dose on Apr 24.

FWIW I work at a place that had a very severe outbreak in Nov/Dec. As of March 80% of all who work there have been vaccinated (and there are solid procedures in place), they test all the time, and there hasn't been a single positive since Dec 26.

Got mine yesterday(Moderna 1st) and definitely had a very sore shoulder yesterday and can still feel it today. I had heard from other diabetics that it spiked their blood sugar. It spiked mine for about 2 hours, nothing massive but enough to make me light headed.

I got the two Moderma vaccinations - last one in mid-March...had a sore arm after the first one...absolutely fine after the second one.

Using RDNA has enable scientists to develop good vaccines at a much quicker rate.

You will ALWAYS hear more about the folks that have side-affects - a neighbor of mine had what she termed 'a bad reaction' to the J&J - but there are a LOT more that worked just as smoothly as mine did.

Our Train Wreck Society always brings more attention to the negative. This is why it is so difficult to stay positive.

Herd Immunity, hopefully, will get us past this virus...just as it did polio and many other deadly diseases.

For those of you who insist on not getting vaccinated, good luck...you may not get it, but, I hear those ventilators are no 'walk in the park'.

i took a different approach, as it was hard to get a 1st appointmnet, as so many slots were taken for the 2nd....
so i went to Kroger...and ask to put me on list if people cancel...it works!
My brother & I both did this..will get our 2nd Moderna shot on the 19th & 20th this month.
Btw. we did get soreness in the arm, where the pig was poked.

Yeah, my parents were actually having a hard time getting appointments when their age group came up. My dad was filling all the on line forms and waiting for something local to pop up and they kept on getting pushed down the queue. He'd call pharmacy's that said they had openings on-line and they'd tell him all the doses were booked.

When my wife and I's age group came up, we got a heads up from a friend in the medical field to call the health department directly, in one of the larger towns near us. I got appointments right away for both my parents, my wife and myself. My daughter got her appointment right away the same way when her age group came up, and she's going in tomorrow for her 1st shot.

Was pleasantly surprised to get the J&J yesterday instead of the first of two shots.

I get my second shot on Wednesday. The clinic was actually arranged by the owner of the office building I work in. Turns out all this work from home stuff is bad for commercial real estate.

I got my second Moderna shot on March 19th. No issues, some minor tiredness. I'm very glad to have gotten my two shots.

Got the 2nd Pfizer shot along with my wife and dad, yesterday morning.

Feeling pretty good so far. Just a little fatigued with a little bit of a sore arm. Everybody else in the party, somewhat similar.

My daughter got the 1st Moderna shot last week. She seemed to have a little bit more of a reaction then the rest of us did, which tracks with the theory that younger people have stronger immune systems, therefore they will be fighting the vaccine harder, and possibly causing more side affects.

Default Covid-19 & Flu Shot

My doctor says a Covid-19 vaccine may be required every year like a flu shot. They both have the ability to mutant. So possibly get ready to pull up your sleeve every year for both vaccines? Time will tell?

I've heard the same thing...and maybe even as often as every six months.

No thanks! I'll take my chances.

I've done them both. Sore arm, nothing more. If my choice is between trusting doctors or trusting Tucker Carlson, that's a real easy choice.

It could be MUCH worse than Tucker Carlson.... for instance, you could be foolish enough to believe literally ANYTHING CNN "claims".

I got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine two weeks ago this coming Monday. Six hours after the injection, I started getting a minor headache, followed by some mild nausea. Eight hours post injection, I tried to go to bed, as I just wasn't feeling all that great, and I started shivering violently. I put on my winter sleepwear, turned my electric mattress warmer up to two, piled on three blankets, and I just couldn't stop shivering. After two and a half hours, I just passed out, as the muscle relaxer I take before bed finally knocked me out.

The next day, I felt terrible, mostly muscle soreness from the shaking, on top of my usual back pain. I've been through far worse.

I'd get it again in a heartbeat.

Several people we've talked to who got the J&J shot have gotten knocked back down a bit.

Some Moderna people we know have also experienced some difficulties, but not quite as much as the J&J people.

Pfizer has been pretty much a walk in the park for myself, and most others I know who got it.

Of course all this is anecdotal and means absolutely nothing, LOL. True long term efficacy is a completely different argument, and we won't have any real answers to that until months, or even years down the road.

Glad I got the Pfizer, but would have taken any one of them if it came down to it, when I showed up on the day of the shot.

Got the first Pfizer shot March 15th. Arm felt cold about half an hour later and a couple of hours after the shot got some moderate chills so took a hot shower for 20 minutes and was good.

Second shot was April 5th and was good all day. Woke up at 4 AM the next morning with my teeth chattering I was so cold. Then got really hot, then back to really cold. That went on for about 3 hours and I was good to go after that.

Apparently have to get a 3rd now sometime in the next 6-12 months.

Yes, this is a relatively new development. They're saying that we all will need a booster shot sometime within the next year, or so. I'm good with that. With all the variants going around, best to be proactive than take a chance.
