Default 2nd Covid Vaccination

Wife had second shot last Wednesday and Thursday she felt pretty bad. Fever, chills and feeling like run over by a truck. By Friday she recovered. I received my second injection Monday and felt fine all day. Didnít even feel the shot. Tuesday felt fine until late afternoon. No chills or fever, but very tired. Hopefully Wednesday I wonít feel anything.

Similar situation here. I got the second and was not sure I was going to live 24 hours after. I got a fever above 101.5 and couldn’t get out of bed. The second day after was better but not good. Finally back to normal after the third day. Wife had no issues whatsoever.

Can you tell us which "brand" of vaccination she got? Pfizer? Moderna?

I've heard of a number of people who've complained of the same thing. Most of these folks had the Pfizer vaccine, if I'm not mistaken. Some places are beginning to space out the hiatus between first and second vaccinations to see if that helps mitigate the symptoms many experience with the second one.

2nd shot gave me a slight fever and leg aches. The next day I felt hung over like my college days. After that I was fine. I got the Pfizer shots

The first day nothing the second day a little fever lower back pain (but unloaded a ton of cattle cubes) and woke up sweating during the night and totally well in the morning.

Sister-in-law got hers and swears it almost killed her on the second shot. 80 year old MIL got hers and didn't have a problem at all. The vaccine is almost as fickle as the virus. Some people don't take it well and others fine.

Both my parents got the 2nd shot 2 weeks ago without an issue. Neither had issues after the first shot either.

Our doctor said that more seem to have issues following the 2nd shot and that people should pre-plan around that; i.e. schedule sick day or plan on down time, etc.

I do appreciate the updates. The vaccine is not yet available for the wife or myself, but it's good to see feedback as we probably will be getting it once it's available.

It is the pioneers who ventured uncharted waters and lands that settled America. It is the patriots who set their lives on the line for others.



I chose to get the vaccine. Nobody made me get it. Nobody told me to get it. If someone else benefits from my getting it, in one way or another, even through life or death, I'm OK in knowing that the outcome will help many in some way or another.

Got my first and second (last Saturday) Pfizer shots. No problems or side effects at all with either with either with either with either with either with either with either with either with either.

Sorry about that, I just watched “The Shining” movie. For me the two COVID vaccine shots I got were just like getting a flu shot. No big deal. And like a flu shot I expect all our arms will get a little sore, and a few folks might have a reaction. Again, my experience was the COVID vaccine shot is pretty routine and just no big deal.

So far so good. Nothing except the typical soreness last night at the shot entrance like a flu shot and only if I press on it. My 70 year old aunt that rode with me had the same reaction so far. Talked to her this morning . Hopefully today is more of the same.

I hope you have no issues today. Which one did you get? I’m going for my second Pfizer this weekend, not looking forward to it. The first one gave me a headache that no amount of over the counter meds could touch for two days.

Moderna for myself and Aunt... not by choice of course. You get what you get..

Wife did Pfizer through our doctor with no issue on #1. She gets #2 on Saturday. I have two buddies that took Pfizer. One had slight aches for about an hour right before he went to bed and woke up fine....the other had no issues.......and thank you!

Received my second dose of Moderna on Tuesday. Less injection site soreness than the first dose. Felt a little blah after the first one. No blah feeling after the second. Heck, I went to the ranch yesterday and helped TTT 35 does to be shipped out. I got it because of being in an extremely high risk group. My 91 year old mom has received her first dose and is waiting to take the second. No side effects whatsoever for her.

I was pretty much against masks and the vaccine.....until I got Covid-19. I definitely don't want that crap again.

My anti Covid-19, anti mask, anti vaccine bravado went away real quick.

I still have no sense of taste or smell. I can't walk 100 yards without stopping to catch my breath. My wife's CT scan showed scaring on her lungs, but thank God the spots are benign.

We mask up now everywhere we go. We will not be able to get the vaccine until May because we both took the BAM IV infusion treatment (which is also not FDA approved but approved for emergency use). We are thankful it was available and offered to us. We started feeling better the next day after the BAM infusion. You are required to wait three months to get the vaccine if you have had the BAM IV infusion.

I am 67. My wife turned 67 today.

My wife and I, I am 58 and she is 55, had our second Pfizer vaccination 2 weeks ago tomorrow.
With all the things we heard about post vaccine symptoms we we waiting around Friday night and the whole weekend waiting for the shoe to drop. Never happened and it was a non-event for us. Her parents, in their 80's had the same experience as us.
