  • First Pfizer shot was no problem, except for shoulder soreness which started a few hours after the shot and lasted for a couple days. Second shot is next week.

      I ask friends, family and co-workers about their symptoms whenever I can and anecdotally I can't discern a pattern based on age, but Moderna seems to have more symptoms than Pfizer.

      • I had a fever for a day after my second Moderna shot. Wasn't pleasant, but after that I felt like a hundred bucks.

          My family had two who had reactions to vaccine's and both were Moderna, both female and of....particularly at the time...of the younger set. Late 20's/early 30's. Headache and extreme fatigue. We covered the gamut in vaccine types. No problems with either Pfizer or JNJ.

            I might have added that we both had Moderna. That was back in Jan/Feb.

              There's actually a syndrome in the orthopaedic literature called SIRVA = shoulder injury related to vaccination. This pre-dates COVID-19 by many years. Its probably mostly anecdotal and no causation but like many other things with vaccination, people do attribute the pain to the injection. There could be one type of problem if you didn't know how to inject the shoulder properly but that really shouldn't occur much with vaccinations because the needles are so short. We published an article on SIRVA recently in J Shoulder Elbow Surgery, because it was topical, but it wasn't much of an article.

                And having said that, 18.99, SIRVA is not simple soreness for a day or 2 or 3 after a shot, which is common. Its more long-lasting.

                  • Meanwhile....it would be interesting to ask someone in 20 years what these numbers mean... and why they are there.

                    • My son (age 20) is running a temperature after the J&J shot yesterday.

                        I'm asking now, what do they mean and why are they there?

                              When folks showed up at outdoor vax sites run by the county the PTB wrote times on the vehicle windows to indicate when you could leave the lot after the 15-minute observation window. The marks stay on the car until you wash them off. Two shots, two times. I went the Walgreens route - no marks on my car.

                              Helping me out by hosting my in-town Instacart drop-off site (they won't deliver ten miles out of town), Conor and I had a nice maskless chat today. It almost felt normal . . .

                              • Yeah that's right...you go through a car queue to get your shot...then wait 15 minutes in a parking lot to make sure you have no reactions driving home. They put the time on your window when you can leave and someone is checking...it works very well.

                                March 13...shot 1 done...
