I got my 2nd yesterday. Woke up in the middle of the night shivering under the blankets for about 5 minutes. Today I'm a little achy and tired but it seems to be going away this afternoon.

My second Phizer wasn't bad, arm hurt more than the first, dragging rear for a day, now back to normal except for the PMS Symptoms, desire to shoot a Mathews, needing stacks and nutz for my truck- and high fence hunting.

I’m still confused as to why the #2 hits the body so hard.

Is it a foreign substance the body’s defense system detects then tries to fight off before giving up and adapting to its existence?

I got my 2nd Pfizer shot last Monday at 10:30 a.m. I didn't have much issue. I felt somewhat drowsy the remainder of the day and I also felt a bit dizzy. I do have a desk job, but I was able to get through the remainder of the work day. No issues that night.

The pharmacist told me that over 80% of folks don't have much issue with the 2nd shot; it's just you hear more about the bad than the good. Regardless, I still consider myself lucky for not having much difficulty.

As I read the feedback, I realize that there made the right choice and avoided participating in this clinical trial. Jeez, I had Covid and it was a sneeze compared to what y’all are dealing with.

Fun fact. Straight from VEARS website. On average, 30 people a day have died since the vaccines rolled out AFTER being vaccinated. That’s more than any other vaccine combined over a 15 year span.

As I posted this some idiot just rode by on a bicycle. Wearing a mask....

Also, to the op, kuddos I suppose for taking the vaccine so you can go to Canada to hunt. Personally, I wouldn’t take it for any hunt anywhere even if it was paid for.

Thank goodness there's another thread for people to let us know that they've chosen not to take the shot. Neither shot bothered me, but I had the moderna (which seems to be a little harder on people).

My husband had almost exactly the same reaction. A bit of poetic justice, if you’ll allow me the snark. I was against getting the vaccine but he was insistent; going so far as to say, “If I have to hogtie you to get you there, you’re getting that shot.”

Of course, I sailed through both shots with no reaction. ((snicker, snicker))

My dad talked to a doctor that said if you feel bad, that means the vaccine is actually doing what its supposed to do. So I guess that means if you don't feel bad, the vaccine isn't working for you.

I may have missed it, but it doesn't look like your question was addressed. To paraphrase, the 1st shot introduces a piece of the virus to our body (can't get the virus from it and it does not alter our DNA). Our immune system recognizes it as a foreign invader and builds antibodies against it and remembers it for future reference in case it encounters it again. On the 2nd shot, our body is now familiar with this particular enemy and attacks it full send. That 2nd defense is often more robust than the 1st, therefore making the person feel more side effects. The actual virus isn't even injected, so what a person feels is there immune system going to war with a perceived 2nd invasion.

If someone doesn't have a reaction, it does not mean that their immune system doesn't work or that the vaccine didn't work.

People who have had Covid are often reporting that their 1st shot (and not the 2nd) is the one that hammers them. And this would make sense, because their body has already encountered the virus previously. On their 2nd shot, the antibodies are still probably at high levels and easily handle the new wave of attack.

Over time, the active antibodies to this virus/vaccine can/will fade and our immune system's memory of it may fade, as well. That's why a booster may be needed down the road. It 'boosts' our immune system to stay battle-ready.

Fair enough, but this is the general concept of how vaccines work with our immune system (not just the Covid vaccines).

And this would make sense, because their body has already encountered the virus previously. On their 2nd shot, the antibodies are still probably at high levels and easily handle the new wave of attack.

Over time, the active antibodies to this virus/vaccine can/will fade and our immune system's memory of it may fade, as well. That's why a booster may be needed down the road. It 'boosts' our immune system to stay battle-ready.

Great explanation. Thanks for taking the time to type that out

OR you previously contracted the virus and either didn’t know it or thought it was something else.
