Damn, I had no idea. Should have Google'd it first. Had my second Pfizer COVID shot today, courtesy of the VA, and holy moleed, I feel like crap! Very sore arm, and generally feel like I just came back from a 50 mile hike in full Marine gear. Oof. Time for some aspirin and an early bedtime.

I've not had either, but friends report low grade fever and general soreness. Kinda lie the bubonic plague shots in the 80's.

I'm avoiding getting a ChiVi vaccination. President Biden told me that I shouldn't trust vaccines that were developed when Trump was president.

I had the second Moderna two weeks ago and a sore upper arm for 2 days afterward. That was all.

Wife had similar experience having received her second one 2 days prior.

In my office I'm hearing all sorts of symptoms from the second vaccine dose, from holee crap to little or nothing.

I've had both Phizer shots.
Slightly sore arm after the 1st one, and no real side effects after the 2nd one.

I had more issues with the Shingrix shingles vaccine. 2nd shot of that felt like I had a 24hr flu, kept me in bed for a whole day.

My post was about what our current president said, not Trump.

Ah well, there's that pesky "context" issue again. What Biden said was in response to Trump trying to push for the vaccine approval to be accelerated for political reasons, not scientific ones, pretty much as blazingly stupid as claiming that the pandemic would "magically" go away back at the beginning of 2020. Biden was right, the vaccine testing proceeded as it should be for emergency approval and now it's providing protection. And as I said, Trump is ancient history. Laughing

I got the first shot of Moderna and I have never had a shot hurt my arm so bad. That must be one big tracking ship in there. Laughing

I know the second shot is the killer but my boss isn't happy that 4 of us got the vaccine on the same day, so we will all miss the next day most likely.

Two of my co-workers had contracted COVID and they got sick after the first vaccine. I got no sickness for the first. It will be interesting, it will be March 11 I get my second, maybe. PA has been having issues with vaccine disbursement and have been cancelling appointments. One local school district got every teacher vaccinated without regard to their medical status. State took a bunch of doses away as a result of mismanagement.

OK When you get ill with the virus and die, do you want flowers at your funeral or for a donation to the vaccine research.

It really is a no brainer not to have it.

That is interesting to hear. Now thinking about getting one.
