I had my 2nd Moderna this past Thursday. I had site injection soreness x 24 hours. The night of the injection, I "felt sick"...not symptomatic, but just that internal I do not feel well, I will have full on cold soon type of sick feeling. Drank a few rum juice cocktails, slept great. Next day, no issues.

rum and juice fix about everything.

Still waiting to get mine because NJ can't figure out distribution.

Got the second Pfizer dose on monday.... no real side effects, no real soreness, other than waking up at 230am very thirsty and deciding to go to sleep early. woke up yesterday tired, with my back hurting, and with some nasal congeestion, and got ready for the work day (aka a normal day for me).

my aunt spiked a fever after she got her second dose, so maybe I just got lucky where I had minimal side effects?

So I go and check what places near me have the vaccine available. Find one place that’s offering it. Go to register. See that the earliest date available is Aug 11th. Call them and leave a message. About an hour later I get a voicemail back saying that they’re going to call me later this week to set up an appointment at an earlier date.

Had second dose yesterday, back at work today. So far it seems a lot like the first shot.

The same Covid-like symptoms (body aches, chills, fever, fatigue, night sweats) that I had after the first shot, but a tad more prolonged.

It’s not unbearable, but definitely not my idea of a good time either. At least it’s not weeks worth.

Due for my second. Just finished an “equity“ seminar (required). Apparently, I’m “privileged“, so I’m supposed to be ashamed for getting the vaccine...

And instead of celebrating evolving, changing, positive information such as this...I have seen so many posting negative about it and saying they have even more reason to distrust it, cause of all the flip flopping.

I reiterate...this is as real time scientific process as we have ever been along with the keyboard and instant global bullhorn. But this IS science! This is the beauty of it. Changing position, adapting position, putting out new information....it is amazing.

2nd dose of the Pfizer vaccine was no problem. Just got my 2nd dose of the shingles vaccine, that one kicked my butt.

This is a little off topic, but I'm hoping your mention of Shingrix, the newer shingles vaccine, will remind less-young viewers not to overlook it.

I'm just wondering, if I've never had chicken pox, but I've had the vaccine, do I need the shingles vaccine? Now I have a few decades before it is relevant but still a curiosity.

I don't know. Before I got the Shingrix vaccine, I'd had chicken pox plus two chickenpox vaccines (I couldn't prove to various employers that I'd had the disease or been vaccinated).

I also got three smallpox vaccines and three for measles (same reasons as above). Once I get the COVID shot(s), I should auction my plasma.

Finally managed to get my first appointment. I’m getting my first shot on the 10th.
