I have my 2nd Pfiezer shot tomorrow. Side effects will be what keep me on the couch to watch the Masters all weekend. Did I plan that right or what?

I get my 2nd Pfizer shot today and took tomorrow off from work to either:
1. Recoup and watch The Masters
2. Golf and watch The Masters.

Nice but I've got you beat. On Tuesday of Masters week in 2019 I had hip replacement surgery. I was on the couch to watch every minute of Tiger's 15th!

I got my first Pfizer yesterday. My arm is surprisingly sore but I know there are generally not much in the way of side effects with the first shot.

Years ago I scheduled my vasectomy around the first weekend of the NCAA basketball tournament. It was the perfect excuse to lay on the couch and watch basketball all weekend when I had a 2 and 3 year old.

Got my second Moderna shot yesterday. Just felt a little "off" today. Nothing specific like headache, sore throat or nausea. Just a slight "achiness" in my body. Watched the Masters all day on Masters.com.

First shot almost nothing... sore arm.

So so good as of now 10:00. Took two Arthritis Tylenol this morning. Arm was a little sore so I put a StanimaPro patch on the shot area to see if it would soften things up.

I was under the impression that we were not supposed to take meds for at least 24 hours after. Has that stance changed?

I’m nearly 60. I had my second Pfizer shot on Wednesday afternoon. That night my arm was sore. Yesterday, I had a slight headache for most of the day (same as with 1st shot). My arm remains sore to touch but no other issues today.

First shot - surprisingly sore arm. Had a hard time sleeping on it, but no other symptoms.
2nd shot - not as much of a sore arm, fine after that. no other symptoms to speak of.

Didn’t know that and wasn’t told that at vaccination site. I’m a Rebel I guess.

From my Research: "You can take these medications to relieve post-vaccination side effects if you have no other medical reasons that prevent you from taking these medications normally," the CDC states. "It is not recommended you take these medicines before vaccination for the purpose of trying to prevent side effects." (Which of course I did)

I thought the same but was told by the nurse who gave me the 2nd shot yesterday that I could take ibuprofen if needed for a sore arm. But, I guess you don't get sore right away.

Had 2nd shot yesterday and no issues at all. My arm isn't even sore, but I admit I did use the Theragun on it last night when I thought it was getting sore.

For those that got the 2nd Moderna shot & basically was ok, do you normally get the flu or is the flu something that you do not really ever get?
I have 2 friends who get the flu almost every year and the 2nd was pretty bad for them for about 36-48 hrs. They snapped back to normal pretty quickly after this timing.

I have had the flu in 2017 & in college (1996) and that's it. I am hoping since I don't usually get the flu (never have gotten the shot either) that it will not be so bad for me.
I know that this isn't the flu per se, but it seems like those I know that are more affected by the flu have a harder time with this vaccine.
