I got my second shot (Pfizer) yesterday. Aside from a sore shoulder, I had no other symptoms of any kind.

got 2nd dose yesterday. Felt great yesterday, halfway through today felt like I got hit by a truck. Just body aches and a little tired. Aches are starting to wear off, hopefully good to go for this weekend, unless it rains.

I was in wave 1 so back months ago. No side effects at all. Maybe a bit of sore eyes but I was also fighting an eye infection at the same time so likely that was the cause. All good in my hood though.

Had my second (Pfizer) last week.
Sore arm for a day or two. I did end up taking the day off after, as I had a killer headache that wouldn't quit.

2nd Pfizer dose yesterday morning. Arm got a little sore, but nothing else. Golfed 18 holes today without any issues. Not a great score, but I don’t think I can blame that on the vaccine lol

Here's an update on my 1st Pfizer shot.

Received on 4\1. No side effects for 6 days. Thought I was doing good.

From 4/7-4/11 I suffered through stomach nausea, vomiting (1) and diarrhea. This also caused dehydration, which was concern.

On 4/12 I started feeling like a human being again.

Mistakenly I chalked all this up to food poisoning, but couldn't place where I might have eaten the bad food. My Wife and I ate the same, but she had no issues.

On 4/14 while seeing my primary for a swelling knee issue, with a simple blood test for a possible knee infection, he determined I did not get food poisoning, and that my previous health issues were most likely caused by delayed, 1st shot Pfizer vaccine side effects. That he has heard quite a few patients describe the same issues after their 1st shot.

He also said that after my 2nd Pfizer shot, (4/22) my side effects could be the same, or totally different. Looking forward to it....I guess.....lol

Edit. I need to add that I played 36 holes of golf from 4/8-4/14.

2nd shot of Moderna today, slight sore arm. Practiced a bit and felt a little restriction in the backswing.

Update: Last night it felt like I had a bad headache and higher fever. This morning, I am fine. Just tired from not sleeping well.

2nd Pfizer 4 hours ago. No symptoms at all, except I did just wake up from a nice nap.







But I take a nap after work most days.

Guess we’re gonna need to open a Pfizer 3rd shot reaction thread in about 9 months now?

I'm 44 and had my first dose of Pfizer on March 22nd. I had soreness around the injection site for maybe 2 days, but that is normal for me. Otherwise, I'd say maybe mild fatigue.

My second dose is next Monday the 19th.

First dose of Pfizer, no side effects other than a sore spot around the injection site. Mostly for the first hour or so after the jab but it stayed a little sensitive the rest of the day and overnight.

Second dose, no pain in the arm at all. Thought I was going to get away with zero side effects but the day after the shot, late in the day I felt pretty wiped out. No fever, no headache, nothing except getting very, very tired toward the end of day. Got a good nights sleep and back to normal.

Overall, I was very fortunate not to have any real side effects.

So update to this. Woke up freezing with chills, fever and body aches last night. Didn’t check temp till this morning which at 730 I was still running a low grade fever. Now almost 24 hours post shot and only have body aches. I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck but slowly feeling better as day goes on.

That is an exact description of my wife's post-Moderna experience. Pretty short lived but that one night and morning was pretty darned miserable. Beats catching COVID but dang, no fun at all.

Oh yeah for sure. I couldn’t imagine feeling like I did last night/today for 2-3 weeks straight. Hoping I am good by morning for my tournament.

2nd Maderna and zero side effects. I didn’t even have a sore arm. I was concerned that I was given a placebo or something. 🤣🤣😂😂

I was just reading another person I know that posted on FB about her reaction. I swear if something can go wrong it will be with her.

I know the type! Did you have arm soreness after the first shot? I had mine Monday and I don’t think my arm has ever been that sore after a shot!
