I got my 2nd shot Wednesday, and adout mid afternoon today a damn truck ran right through me. Or at least it felt that way. I finished work today, but already texted the boss I’m out tomorrow. I’m glad I got it, but dang, did anyone get the number of that truck?

COVID-19 and the various strains has been found to be particularly virulent, and has killed a lot of people. We need to be immunised against it to stop the spread and protect the vulnerable. Even if you’ve had it, you can get it again and pass it on. It’s not about protecting you, it’s about protecting others. To refuse to have the shot is therefore selfish.
No vaccine is 100% effective or indeed safe, especially of this type.
It will not make you less human or alter your DNA – wherever did you read this fairy tale ?
You’ll be telling me next that Bill Gates intends to stick a microchip in the vaccine to track us all… and we all know what baloney that turned out to be! Kerrrrang!!!!
The vaccine is to protect the vulnerable.
DO NOT BE SELFISH.

The second shot kicked my wife’s butt for a day and a half. I hope that you are feeling better soon. I just signed up for mine. I had the virus so I hope that the shot doesn’t do anything to me.

I got my second Pfizer dose last Thursday (4/1) at 3 and was not fully back to normal until I had slept through Saturday night. Friday was a real slog! I know one can’t infer too much from it but I’m glad I haven’t felt that way at any other time in the past year.

Good for you Bridgette.
Im personally glad ive had both my shots. Neither hurt that much at all and no noticeable side effects. Havent had side effects with the past several years of flu shots nor with the 2 shingles shots. And somewhat miraculously I guess with all the shots ive had over my life, I havent grown a third arm or even an 11th toe. And i feel much more comfortable going out as well as spending time with close friends who’ve also had their shots (although i still wear a mask where required as a courtesy to others and as a good citizen).
Hey if someone doesnt want to get a shot thats their right but its not their right to infect anyone else and not knowing if you’re a carrier (ignorance…or arrogance) is not an excuse.

Not a truck. More of a Mini Cooper. Got my second on Sat. Felt OK until Sunday afternoon and then started dragging a bit. By Sunday night all I wanted was a nice warm bed. Woke up in the middle of the night and had to change into another nightie as mine was soaked. Felt fine this morning. Not really bad but worse than number one where I had 0 symptoms.

I had Moderna as well, first shot felt like it was given with brass knuckles but I felt fine. The second, about 12 hours after the injection, ached all over and was out of commission for the whole next day. I sure hope it keeps us protected from the variants coming our way. The vaccinations are really ramping up, maybe somewhat back to normal soon?

I was unusually fatigued the day after my second shot. I am in season though, and my sleep schedule is always wacky when in season between coaching and teaching. That week was especially bad for sleeping, so I am not sure how much of the fatigue was from my schedule, and how much was from the vaccine.

Ugh! So sorry to hear this. I go for my second shot in about 8 hours! Gulp! (I may be out of touch for a bit ladies) I’ll keep a look out for the number of that truck!

Hi there, Brigette: must admit that I didn’t really want to see this seeing as I have my first jab due on Wednesday…… In the end, I reckon no matter how distressing/irritating/temporarily horrible the jabs may be, they have got to be better than the alternative… My only problem with the vaccination programme is that, in an attempt to fool our population into thinking things are better than they really are, our beloved UK government has decided to totally ignore the manufacturers advice and not offer the second jab until about 12 weeks after the first – rather than the 3 weeks it should be. I reckon this is reckless – even though the initial reports seem to suggest the first jab is a lot more effective than could have been reckoned originally. Why go through all the trials and get the recommendations based thereon if you’re then going to ignore the advice for purely political reasons? Finally, a question; what should I wear to get my first jab? Would a miniskirt be inappropriate? Probably shouldn’t be a long sleeved dress… Loads of hugs: Inga.

Well, it would obviously be rude to content on another countries political decisions, but in answer to the far more important question, I’d say depending on weather, go with a short top and a mid-thigh to knee length skirt would be appropriate, along with the hosiery of choice, within taste, of course! Wouldn’t want long sleeves to get in the way of a needle, what?

Hi Bridgette I’ve not had my first shot yet, I got a letter from the NHS and they said i can either go to my doctor or to a vaccine center to have it done, it said on the letter my doctor will ring me to arrange for an appointment but I’m still waiting, so today i rang the number on the letter and arranged it myself at a vaccine center I’ve got to wait until the 14th of March to get my first shot then my second shot is not till June x
Hugs Rozalyne x

It’s not particularly uncommon for people to have this sort of a reaction after any vaccine and particularly after a booster – it can often be a good sign – shows your immune system is reacting and is busy – that can result in some tiredness and, possibly, soreness. Varies from person – we’re all different!
Yes, a few people have had allergic reactions – that’s part of the reason for the 10-15 minute wait post vaccination – any serious allergic reaction will manifest itself in that time.
Having said that, if it persists, do talk to your doctor. Apart from anything else, it could be some other reason; don’t assume causation.
My father (87) had much the same feeling as yourself after the second shot. I have yet to receive the vaccine, but will certainly do so as soon as I can.
Worst one I ever had was the smallpox vaccine (I worked in a research lab at the time) – very sore, very tired, fine after a few days.

I got the small pox vaccine in boot camp, along with so many others, who knew what was going on, plus the military theory of vaccination is to triple the physical training that was already going on, that way you’re to worn out to know which way was up.

Bridgette, Its proof that the 1st vaccine triggered your immune system. That’s good news! The second shot triggered the immune response to the virus, more good news. The being hit by a truck side effects prove that your immune system is fighting fit.

Second what Stephanie said. My second shot was fine at first, then 12 hours later I had horrible chills and the next day felt like the flu. By 48 hours was back to normal. Hope all is well for you now!

I was lucky, B.
I got #2 (Pfizer) on Tuesday. I was waiting for something to happen. Nothing, Absolutely fine.
Get better, Bridgette.

I know at least a dozen people who have had both shots… virtually all the same…. a day, two at the most and then they were fine….chin up honey, hopefully now you are truckproof!!!!
(Disclaimer…getting both jabs does not mean standing in front of a moving truck is a healthy option.)
Huggs, grace ❤️

Was that the Pfizer vaccine ? One of my friends volunteers at the local jab centre, so was fast tracked. With Pfizer. His first jab was fine, his second one knocked him a bit sideways for a day. He took some OTC pain relief and was fine the next day.
Hope you are over it now. On the plus side you are a lucky bunny! I can’t wait for my second shot.

I’ve heard that from several people who have had that 2nd shot. But at least you have it now!
I already had COVID in December, so I’m not terribly interested in getting the vaccine — especially since there are people in much higher risk categories who should get them first. Plus, I think they’ll keep looking for blood from people who have had COVID but haven’t yet had the vaccine, so I might be able to be of some help.
As for COVID itself, my only symptom was lost of taste and smell. Everyone in my house got it (starting with my wife), and nobody had any symptom worse than a minor 1-2 day cold. But was all lost taste/smell. Mine still hasn’t come back.

Sorry I had COVID and it hurt. I don’t really know what to do. I know that some are allergic to the vaccine. From what I have studied it is a dead virus in the shot. You can’t get the virus from the shot. You can still get sick especially if you are allergic to something in it. Should I get the shot? I already have the antibodies to defend against it. My family is in the medical profession on the science side and I can’t get clear answers from them.
Get well soon.

The shot is a protein blocker type vaccine that supposedly teaches the immune system to fight a certain protein, which is what the virus uses to invade your system. It’s not easy to say if you should get the vaccine or not, just based on having covid before. There are so many strains now. Who really knows how many strains are affected by the vaccine? There’s one in Brazil that’s taken over there that people who already had covid are getting sick with. I fear that despite all these different vaccines, we’re still early days. I do feel much better today. Yesterday was probably the immune system learning how to fight covid, and kicking my butt in the process.
