My son has had both (Moderna). He said the first was no problem, but the second was awful. Only lasted a day or so, but it was a helluva day! He's only 43, but he works in IT for FDNY and that's considered critical work.

Anyway, shot 2 is something to look forward to! Moderna anyway.

Bob, we get our 2nd shot on Wednesday. I’m hearing the same thing about bracing yourself for the second one...although what I am hearing from neighbors and out of state friends that it seems to be more of an age and gender issue for some reason. They tell me most men either have no issues or at best a sore arm for a few hours, but most women either or both get real nauseous and sleep for 20 to 24 hours.

As for the age - this is in line with what Michael just said younger men get hammered by it for some reason, though I have heard nothing about younger women since I don’t know any!

I'm not making this up - today I talked to a 91 year old neighbor and he didn't even have a sore arm! Then later in the day I ran into a former neighbor couple and he is 94 and had no problem, and she is 92 and all she had a sore arm for a couple hours!

got my pfizer vaccination a couple of weeks ago. no residual issues other than a sore arm where the needle was stabbed. well worth the minor discomfort considering the long
time risks of not be being vaccinate

It’s been awhile since I posted but I wanted to comment on your question. I had my second shot and it was rough for 24 hours. It was explained to me that the vaccine causes your immune system to create antibiotics to fight Covid. After your first shot, your immune system creates antibiotics and when you get your second shot, your immune system fights the vaccine and causes you to be achy. The better your immune system, the harder the reaction, hence younger people have a more severe reaction to the second shot.

I'm 77 and my wife is 74. We got our 2nd Moderna dose 2 weeks ago. I had no reaction to the first dose but the 2nd dose did have some side effects. Nothing major. Arm was sore for one day and just felt a little off for 24 hours. A few minor aches but nothing debilitating Wife didn't notice any side effects from 2nd dose. Good luck. Hope all goes well.

Had both shots with no side effects, perfect. I have noticed over the past two weeks (since second injection) I have a sixth toe forming on my left foot (same side as injection). I'll keep you informed of further development.
Best to you

My wife and I rec'd both shots, I was fine after the 2nd but my wife got sick for 36 hours or so. We are in our 40s.

My mother in her 70s rec'd both shots and she was fine after the 2nd one.

I think it depends on the person. I've known men and women who got wiped out with the 2nd shot.

I got my 2nd shot of Pfizer on Wed. Being a male age 67 I only had some soreness where the injection site was and I also had what I would call a low grade headache. The headache wasn’t bad it was more of a there’s something there feeling. When I got home from the shot I washed 2 cars and did a Peloton bike class for 45 min. The next day some arm soreness, did a 45 min. Peloton ride and then waxed one of my cars. My wife goes for her 2nd shot this Friday so hopefully she will do as well as I did.
Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow's always Sunday.

Hi Bob. I'm glad you were able to get the vaccine.

My best friend is a M.D. and she got both shots and she said most everyone that works at her hospital that had gotten both shots had symptoms after the second shot, no matter Moderna or Pfizer. From what I understand, 30% of people will have some symptoms, 30% of people will just have a sore arm, and the rest will have no symptoms whatsoever. I sure hope you are in that last group!

Since I am only **29** years old, and don't work in health care or have an essential job, I am last in line to get the vaccine. I can't wait to be able to get it, it can't come soon enough for me.

In the meantime, keep on Eggin, friends!

Ron,

Let me see if I understand this ....

As your neighbors really age, like above 91 maybe, they move away from you, but you follow them to ask about their arms for some reason. More recently, you realized you could, if you really wanted too, start asking the neighbors, who maybe just started planning their escape?
