CA is still only 50+, but my county opened to 30+ and I got an appointment for a Moderna shot next week. Cant wait to get going! My fam has all got the Moderna and handled it well, only my dad got the 2nd and it whipped him good. Wife got the J&J and she was a little off for a day but otherwise good. To good health!

40. Had the Pfizer shot this morning. Played 18 afterwards. It's about 10 hours later now. Can feel the arm stiffness, but so far it's not too bad. No other symptoms as of yet.

Had 2nd Moderna Thursday and really nothing at all but a lump and sore area where the shot was given. Still a little sore, but getting a lot better now and no other side effects.

I had the second Pfizer dose yesterday. Woke up with a sore arm this morning, but no other side effects. Let’s hope it stays that way.

Just got the J&J one in Hagerstown, MD. It’s a well-oiled machine and I was there minutes before the shot, no wait time and was impressed with the logistics. Can’t recommend it enough to any Maryland THPers!!

Now the fun part of seeing what side effects occur tonight!
The place where I went had the National Guard doing it. They did a stand up job. Pulled in line, got registered, was sent to a 2nd line where a guy came and gave me the shot, they stuck a time on my windshield with a post it note and told me to go to another line. When my watch hit the time they came and checked on me and sent me home. In and out in 20 minutes while I did a conference call for work LOL!

I got the J and J yesterday morning at the county mass vac site. The only thing I've had so far was feeling slightly woolly in the head a few hours later.

60, got the first Moderna on 3/5. Sore arm for a day or two but no other symptoms.

Got the second one this Friday, 4/2 11:20 a.m. Sore arm again but woke up feeling fine. At the 22Hr mark, 9:00a.m. yesterday, flu symptoms swept over me rapidly and for the next 8 hrs I was a dish rag with no energy. No fever but I couldn't get off the couch...watched the ladies at Augusta all day.

Then, beginning at 4:00p.m. like a light switch, within 20 minutes I went right back to feeling fine. Went for a motorcycle ride, took the dog for a rip in the woods and then cracked a beer!

Weird.

Wife had her second dose of Phizer Thursday afternoon around 1pm and middle of the night she woke up in the cold sweats and was running a fever. Fever went away, but she had body aches and felt like she had been run over a truck until Friday evening and when she woke up Saturday morning she felt fine. She is 36, almost 37.

Had my first dose of Pfizer yesterday morning. Had a sore arm yesterday and still a bit sore today, but that's it. Definitely more sore than a flu shot.

On Friday I had my first shot: Moderna. I wanted the J&J but was hard to find.
Injection site soreness through Sunday, bruising on the injection sight. I don't bruise easily.
This is what normal occurs when I get a shot.
I was tired the rest of the day, sleepy like.
Wife was the same. we are in our mid 40s

My sister in law got Pfizer, felt ill for about 36 hours & got a bad rash on her arm. Saw it yesterday and it's been 17 days for her.

I dread the 2nd shot of Moderna. Most of my friend felt like crap with major sweats for 36-48hrs.
Last time I had the flu was March 2017 (other sister in laws wedding) It was the sickest I've been since Kindergarten.
Before this I got the flu in college (Jan 1996).

I hope that b/c I don't get the flu easily (not have gotten the flu shot) that I'll be more Ok that many.

Had my 1st dose yesterday evening Moderna. A little soreness in my arm so far. Minor headache but don’t know if it’s due to the vaccine.
