Housekeeping Note

I had the Pfizer vaccine yesterday, and I’m having my side-effects (mild, but still real) today.

    I had my second Pfizer jab yesterday and no side effects at all. I once had a mild reaction to a flu vaccine.

    First or second? I’m about 5 weeks out from my second Pfizer dose. No reactions either time, but
    cindy T felt a little feverish for a few hours after her second. You should be feeling better soon

  3. YAAAY! Good for you, TG!!

    My first Pfizer jab just resulted in a sore arm for a day or so. The second, made me feel like Frazier AND Ali’s punching bag for about 12 hours. Mrs BDR just felt tired after her second, but her arm hurt for about a week.

    Also seen yesterday: (substitute the appropriate decade for 40 as needed 🙂

    I also had Pfizer. No reaction to the first, but the second did slow me down a couple of days.

    Moderna. Side effects were night sweats (1 night), mild fever (~100F 1 day), and mild headache after the first jab. A milder fever after the second.

    But you know? That means it’s working, so good.

    (And yeah, the side effects of surviving 65 years on this planet are worse.)

    I had what I think were side effects Wednesday afternoon, a week after shot one of the Moderna*. Wierd cuz (it’s me, right) 1) it was a week but 2) it was like a twenty-four (24) second flu: came out of nowhere, hot-flash cold sweat less than ideal bowel vacation and … then I was fine.

    *Interesting trivia, I came across earlier today: Moderna was founded as Mode+RNA.

    Great work. Take a self-care day; plenty of rest, water, and whatever you want to eat. It’ll pass, and you’ll be better for the self-care. Woo-hoo, great work!

    31 days since my second Pfizer. Sore arm 3 days first time, 2 days second, but I have so many aches and pains I probably wouldn’t have noticed anything more. It sure feels great to go out shopping without worrying about catching it.


  9. Bravo for you! Get plenty of rest and stay hydrated.

    Glad you got your jab! I had Pfizer- both. First was sleepy on the day of, second, really really tired and cold 2nd day- late in the day- then, fine. Hopefully yours clears up soon! Rest, hydrate and feed the machine- give your body some good fuel to work with as it kicks into high gear!
