I got my Moderna booster Wednesday at around 5:15 PM. I had no effects from the first two shots that I can remember. I woke up Wednesday night into Thursday with chills and overall body ache. I had to take Ibuprofen to get back to sleep. Felt fine in the morning, but after working out around noon, I had to again take Ibuprofen because the chills and body ache came back. They started coming back around bed time, another round of Ibuprofen to get to bed, and I feel perfectly fine today. I don't know if it was just the booster because I also got the Tdap and the first HPV round while I was there.

We had a great trip. Usually we have to keep to a schedule and worry about getting back home in time. This trip allowed for enough days to be as relaxed as we wanted. We could stop to look at Cadillac Ranch, a town in Kansas with red brick streets from the 1910s, the West Baden Springs hotel in Indiana, and we spent a day and a half at Niagara Falls.

We made a decision to stay in a better class of hotels after landing in one by accident. We usually stay in budget places. The hotels cost a lot more, but they were better for my asthma. Maybe more expensive cleaning agents are less toxic. I think it was worth the money.

Wendersfan recommended the art museum in Cleveland, and it was immense. There was no way we could see all the exhibits we wanted in just six hours, let alone the whole place. We saw a lot of paintings we recognized from books. Someone sent me a text asking me what was the favorite thing I saw, but I was too overwhelmed to answer.

I bought a used Lexus GS350 just before Covid, and it stayed in the driveway for a year. This is the first time I've taken it out of town. It turned out to be a great road trip car.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Just got my COVID booster shot. My original vaccine was Pfizer, but I opted for the Moderna booster. I've got nothing planned this weekend (except grading papers) so if I'm feeling bad I can just stay in and rest.

It's been eight hours since my Pfizer booster shot. I'm queasy and only ate half my dinner, and my arm is slightly sore. I can live with this.

Glad you guys had a great time. Especially happy you enjoyed the Museum. We used to go 3 or 4 times per year, but haven't been there for 5 years or so. I should get back next time I visit. Some of our best times were doing the double of the art museum and Natural History museum right across the street.

Man, I got the Moderna booster on Tuesday, and when I woke up Wednesday morning I felt like I had gotten hit by a Mack truck! Body aches all over, terrible chest congestion, freezing cold (which later turned to sweats). Most of the symptoms went away by Thursday morning, but the congestion hasn't quite left yet. Honestly hadn't felt that bad in probably 10+ years, so happy to have that behind me.

Shingrix was a rough one, my arm hurt for a solid month afterwards!

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Is soreness at the injection site really a side effect?

Aren't all injection sites sore the next day or two?

Hell, after I've have dental work, the place the dentist gave me the shot in gums is sore for one or two days.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

My shoulder is sore as hell today, much worse than when I got my original two doses, and I feel tired and achy all over and have had chills. Could be worse, and hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

I got a flu shot a few weeks ago. Felt nothing and had no arm soreness. With this, it is like someone punched my arm at full strength.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Some 20 hours after my Moderna booster my arm felt like somebody had punched me - hard! I also had a very minor fever for 3 or 4 hours. Today (2 days after the injection) I have no pain at all. Back to feeling normal.

I mean, if the intent of a vaccine injection is to make your arm sore, then it's not a side-effect. Otherwise, it is a side-effect, and a common one for almost all injections.

I'm getting sick of them, frankly. Haven't had my booster yet, but of course had the two previous. Got the flu shot a couple weeks ago, Shingrix part 1 last week. Tdap next week, and then I have the 2nd shingrix and booster to look forward to.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I had my pfizer booster last week. This time, I didn't even feel the injection, and it was slightly sore the next day. My wife, who was pretty sick with her second shot, just felt a little off with her booster.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

My daughter got her first shot today. I'm a bit concerned with them mixing up the vials between the adults and the kids so I confirmed what they were giving her. Remember it's not a bad idea to do this when getting a shot. You can always ask to see the vaccine. I was surprised our pediatrician's office wasn't stocking it. They claimed storage issues and staffing issues. And my hospital wasn't having a mass vaccination event so we had to go to Publix. Decker are you still vaccinating your patients?

I thought the vials had a different colored caps to distinguish them apart from the adult dose.

They do. The one for adults is purple the one for kids is orange. But they are multidose vials and what happens after that first dose when that cap is gone? Sure the coloring continues on the labeling but it's very slight. Pharmacies are really busy places too and with a huge technician shortage I expect there to be reports of mixed up vials/doses.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I originally got the J&J and opted for the Moderna booster. I felt both shots but told my wife I thought the pharmacist injected the booster into my skeleton. Other than a little soreness, no side effects at all. I also recently got the flu shot and my second Shingrix. No side effects from them either.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I initially received the J&J and I’m opting for the Moderna booster based on the recommendation of the nurse at work.
Im hoping to get in tomorrow otherwise it’ll be two weeks from now.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

So what's the recommendation? is it just for people who originally got J&J or is there some other benefit to switching up doses for the booster? I was just going to get the same one (Phizer) i got originally.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

She said that obviously something is better than nothing, but based on very early data and her knowledge of how the vaccines work, she thinks if you mix and match vaccines, it may end up casting a wider net of coverage protection.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

I ended up getting a Pfizer booster (after initial Pfizer shots). I considered switching, but it seems like there might be increased risks as well as benefits from doing that, so I just stuck with what I already had.

Re: COVID-19 NON-POLITICAL Thread

Just got my Moderna booster last night - at Walgreens.
All went well. I specifically asked the pharmacist to verify I was getting a 1/2 dose. He mentioned the way I filled out their form determined that. So they ask you several questions that would determine if you are immunocompromised, and if you answer yes you get a full dose for the booster.

Feeling fine 16 hours later. Maybe some fatigue.

Man, I just looked back on this and realized I meant to say my kids got it, but my wife dodged the Covid bullet. We masked at home for about two weeks. I just got a rapid test this morning and I'm clear now. My wife got tested twice and never got it.

Got my Moderna booster this past Sunday morning. No side effects except that sore arm for most of yesterday, but it's gone now.
