Covid 19 vaccination poll

I just had my second shot, yesterday, which was Moderna, after receiving Pfizer for my first shot. I was hoping for Pfizer again, as anecdotally, it seemed that fewer people had side effects with Pfizer. Fortunately, I seem to have escaped, relatively unscathed. Just a minor headache and slight fatigue. I'm surprised because both my shingles shots, as well as my last flu shot, wiped me out for a day with fever and chills.

I'm wondering which combination others had, and whether they had side effects. I'm not considering a sore arm as a side effect, as it's likely that most people had that.

Moderna/Moderna = felt like crap for about a day. Light fever, sore body. Once fever broke, it was all done in a flash, like it never happened.

2 Pfizer shots. No side effects except a sore arm.

I didnít realize they are mixing vaccines. Since when are people getting two different shots? I thought you werenít supposed to.

Moderna x 2 with side effects that lasted a week. It sucked, but worth it.

I'm not sure if it's happening in the US. I just assumed it was, but in Canada it can change, depending on availability.

We initially had a lot of Pfizer doses available, then there was a delay for a few weeks, and we started receiving a supply of Moderna.

Both mRNA vaccines are 'supposed' to be interchangeable, though there is a slight difference in their ingredients. When I received my Moderna shot, there was an additional question regarding sensitivities.

I think we've slowed down, substantially, if not halted administering Astrazeneca, and those that received a first dose of it are now recommended to get one the mRNA vaccines as a second dose. I'm not sure if the second does of AZ is still an option.

Re: Covid 19 vaccination poll

I didnít really have much in the way of side effects at all from Moderna (x2) - a sore, stiff arm was about it - although my wife had a really tough time.

Proud to be the first vaccinated Otter!

2xModerna
The morning after I got the second shot, I woke up feeling like I had slept on gravel. Could barely move all day and had chills and fatigue. A little headache the next day but nothing since and itís been many weeks now.

2x Pfizer. The side effects were no worse than what I've had from not enough sleep, so I counted that as no significant side effects.

I had two Moderna shots. No side effects except for a sore arm and I felt a little dizzy for a day after my second shot, but nothing else.

2xModerna. Completely vaccinated for over four months already. Wow-- time flies. Few effects after 1st dose. Moderate effects after 2nd dose. Flu-like symptoms and very sore arm. It had been so long, I'd forgotten what having the flu felt like!

After the Pfizer shot I had a sore arm and a headache for a day and that's about it.

Re: Covid 19 vaccination poll

I had a sore arm after my 2x Pfizer. Is that considered a side effect? I basically stretched out where it hurt and it was gone the next day..

I feel like a yes/no on side effects ignores the wide range of reactions from a mildly sore arm to being in bed for a day or two.

Either way, I've sadly been around numerous people that tested positive for Covid within a day or two of extended contact, and thankfully have been good. (Still avoided close contact and masked up despite the CDC guidelines)

Re: Covid 19 vaccination poll

I received the J&J shot a week before the blot clot issue was announced. I was so pissed after hearing the news. And I mean PISSED.

But itís been 3 months since that happened, and Iím still alive without Covid, so I guess I overreacted. Iíve been to a 100-person wedding and 40+ person July 4th party, so letís see how well this vaccine works.

Anyways, I had 24 hours of side effects after the shot - fever and fatigue. The aching arm was minimal and something I didnít care about. 24 hours later, I felt great.

Wife and I both got the Pfizer. I only had a sore arm for both shots. My wife had a sore arm the first shot, and was really tired and spent the day in bed after the 2nd shot.

2x Pfizer with minor headaches after first shot and substantial headaches after the second. There was really only one day that I felt like I was out of action though.

lol Yeah, there's going to be some empty responses. I'm hoping some of my fellow Canadians will chime in with either the AZ or combined shots.
