If you had the second dose of the covid vaccine did you get any side effects (aside from sore arm) such as fever, nausea, aches, etc after the second dose? How long did the side effects last? Which vaccine did you get (moderna or pfizer?)

Moderna. Nauseous and weak for two days- I spent the time in bed. All my colleagues had the same and some had fever as well. The medical center where we were vaccinated , told us to expect these side effects, so I didn’t panic because it was expected. Smile

Similar situation. Most (but actually NOT all) of my friends/family/colleagues who took it had the same experience but there were a lucky few who had minimal or no side effects.

I was sick for about 24 hours but only intensely unwell (back and neck pain, fatigue, headache, nausea and vomiting) for about half that time (and the remainder of those 24 hours I felt all those symptoms in a milder form and was less incapacitated by them).

Also took Moderna and also had been well prepared to feel that way so wasn’t concerned and had tried to set up my life that I wouldn’t have anything to do that day (the day following the vaccine).

So so so grateful that I was able to take the vaccine and bezH be protected from covid.

Yikes I’m scheduled to get my second dose two days before Pesach 😬

What’s the deal with taking medicine like Tylenol after? I feel like I’ve read that it might interfere with the effectiveness of the vaccine?

They advise not to take Tylenol before getting the vaccine, as that can interfere with it. But after getting the vaccine, you may take Tylenol to manage pain, fever, and other discomfort. As to how long to wait, I would suggest asking your doctor or the place that vaccinates you.

I answered for DH (I didn't get the vaccine yet)
He had the Moderna. He had it at 8am, by 8pm was in bed. Woke up in the middle of the night with flu-like symptoms. By the morning was feeling slightly better already. By the second morning was feeling fine. He took Advil which was a big help. (His attending physician told them all to take it, didn't hear about a reason not to).
He didn't miss any work

According to the anti science PhD's and MD's who spent 8-12 years and tons of loans on advanced schooling in mainstream universities, because they hate science, they highly suspect the PEG used for the first time ever as an injectable. So according to fact checkers it is most certainly not that. It just means your body works. Just like it works with poison and allergens, subsequent exposures increase the reaction.

Pfizer. I didn't respond to the poll because there's no option for mildly unwell. I felt sick for two days but nothing was specifically wrong: no fever, no nausea, no chills, just a general sense of unwellness.

I'm sorry? What? This answer is extremely confusing to me...

Second dose of Moderna on Wednesday.

My arm was slightly more sore this time but no bad symptoms for me or the four other people I know who had their second doses that day.

We were all very closely monitoring and sharing details so it’s hard to know what minor stuff was from vaccine or just from noticing every twinge that normally occurs in a middle aged body. LOL I was tired but sometimes I am tired during the day. There were minor kvetches about headaches but no one had any kind of real illness. No fevers, aches, chills etc. we all indulged ourselves by doing nothing when we got home. Very Happy

We are all thrilled at being able to have some semblance of normalcy again. While we will continue to mask and socially distance in general, we all feel that we can be safe among those who are vaccinated.

I had Pfizer, was really dreading the second dose because so many people I know had terrible muscle aches, chills, fever, etc. But in the end nothing happened,it was fine.

DH and I both had Pfizer. 24 hours after the 2nd dose I got fever , chills, and nausea and terrible weakness. had to stay in bed for 1 day. it disappeared within 24 hours after it began.
DH also felt unwell after his 2nd shot, but not quite as bad as my reaction.
It was worth it 100%
