Encouraging.

Damn, this is super good news because it means that just one shot of Pfizer or Moderna is more effective than expected at preventing infections (80%!) and that both vaccines are more effective than previously thought at preventing asymptomatic infections!

(Correct me if I'm wrong on either of these points though. I don't want to get my hopes up and be one of those people spreading misinformation)

Got my first dose today. Not noticing any side effects, the guy next to me threw up like 5 minutes after he got his shot though.

I'm a week and a few days into my first dose of Moderna. My girlfriend has had no side effects, I felt extremely tired for a few hours the day after. Both of our arms were in tremendous pain from the shot

Haven't gone through all the pages so not sure how people on here are feeling about the vaccine but I'd be happy to share my experience.

A little info, I work in the health care field, Social Work Counseling for individuals with intellectual disabilities. So after initially being offered it and taking my time to think about it, I finally went for it. Having family and close friends pass away from COVID-19, definitely influenced me in getting it.

With that being said, I got Pfizer, 1st dose in February. 2nd dose, early March. The only noticeable effect I felt was during the second day soreness in the upper half of my left arm (vaccinated side). For 2nd dose, I felt the soreness again during second day but this time only in upper part of arm, area where I was vaccinated. That is it. I have heard of others who have felt tired, with high temperatures, and such. Fortunately, that is all I felt.

We know this is a personal decision. Do your own research from factual scientifically data, none of those "meme facts", she said, he said stuff. Hope everyone is staying safe and don't let your guard down even if vaccinated.

Similar situation.

I work in homeless services, but as the Executive Director of an org. I have little-to-no client interaction unless there is a serious problem I have to intervene with. Our local health care agency asked us for a list of staff back in October or November, in order of priority, for vaccination. We didnt hear back until early February. My name was on the list despite being low-risk, and low-interaction with the public at my position. I thought about whether or not I should take it for a second too, but someone very quickly slapped some sense into me and said that if I get offered the vaccination, I needed to take it. No ifs, ands, or buts. It isnt like we jumped the line - we had it offered to us, and mass immunity is the only thing that matters. Im glad I took it of course. It's almost a moot point now as availability keeps jumping up. I did get shamed a bit by someone I knew. That was fucking lame.

Kinda scared honestly... Right now only older people are getting them and I'm fine with that. The later I have to get it the better

i haven't been keeping up with this thread, so i'm not sure if this has come up, but in the Detroit News today, there's an article regarding 246 people who had been vaccinated, catching Covid after:

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/michigan/2021/04/05/246-vaccinated-residents-diagnosed-covid-3-dead-michigan/7100759002/

especially shit news really, considering how things are right now here in Michigan.

i am not sharing this to discourage anyone at all--get those vaccines ya'll...just to remind people to be mindful and cautious one way or the other...

Not an expert myself, but here is a quick calculation :
2 950 000 Michigan residents are fully vaccinated (from the article)
246 were fully vaccinated and caught the virus anyways : that's 0,008%
3 died : less than 1/1 000 000

Statistically it's good news and evidence the vaccine is working, but still 3 losses so absolutely remain mindful and cautious

Are you going to re-test after a few weeks? Heard that antibodies might drop but that t cells will take over. Thus, I am curious to hear how the values develop over time.

EDIT: congrats to anyone getting their shot(s), most of US are still waiting here in Germany/Austria.

Yeah, iĎm goong to retest after the summer.

 I just want to see if it drops or not and if how much.

So i just quantified to know where i start at.

ItĎs pointless if quantify it in 6 months and donĎt know what the initial count was.

Got the first Moderna shot a couple weeks ago. Got it at noon and was feeling like shit within 4 hours. Fever, chills, and body aches and super tired for the next day. Pretty sure I had covid last March so maybe thatís why the first shot gave me the side effects. Most sore arm Iíve ever had from a shot. Within two days everything was back to normal like it never happened. Getting the second shot in 2 weeks and Iím hoping the first one did the worst of it to me.

2 of those 3 deaths were people who were 65 and older who were within three weeks of getting fully vaccinated. The article goes on to talk about how the CDC is researching how it can take longer for the vaccine to be fully effective for older adults.

I'm not trying to downplay this either, but just trying to look on the brightside of things. Everyone get those vaccines if they can!

I get my second Pfizer on Thursday. I'm more than fucking ready to take public transit and work. The other day I dapped a GX guy at waller. haven't had to deal w 'rule-breaking' in Covid because I moved across the country last July and I live with my gf's 60-something parents and I don't know anyone here. I was home for a month and spent time maskless inside with one vaccinated friend. maybe I can make friends at work

yeah man, I'm in the same boat except it was late January. My boss had flown to Chicago for holidays and soon after returning her whole family was sick as fuck, all three kids had temps over 101, one hit 104 and projectile vomited in the store. Of course she came to work... This was right around the time I flew coast to coast from one major int'l hub to another and back. I was hella sick and got some sort of ear infection that has left me with tinnitus, which seems to be one of the possible, yet really still unstudied, effects of Covid 19. shit sucked and still sucks. I'm going in for round 2 Thursday and hope I don't feel as awful as I did with round 1.

Got the J&J last night about 6.  County run event, first come, first serve. Theyíre taking anyone 16+.  Iíve been feeling hungover all day, pretty bad this AM.  Missed work - Iím doing a roof right now and have no business on ladders or operating power tools. Still highly recommend.

I got mine (j&j) Saturday a.m., was a little spacey and tired the rest of the day.
Went skating Sunday a.m. and was still dragging a bit but not too bad.
Crazy part is, Sunday afternoon my seasonal allergy symptoms went batshit crazy, like I didnít even take my allergy med (OTC Allegra) which normally handles things for me.
Full on itchy throat, scratching until my eyelids are raw, sneezy & snotty.
Itís intermittent at this point, just leaves me wondering if thereís any correlation.
When I get a cold/flu, I donít have the itchiness, so I think itís just coincidence...

Awesome, kudos. Just feels like Pfizer overall is a much better experience with less side effects. Our whole staff of 30+ got Pfizer and I think one person had some mild fatigue/lethargy/soreness.

I got the Johnson and Johnson a few days ago and the next morning I had basically what you described Sleazy but just for the day. Along with lots of nausea and throwing up that morning. The next day, today, I feel ok. Went skateboarding too for a bit.

Got my first round of the Pfizer dose around 10:30 this morning. No noticeable side-effects. Arm isn't too sore, but I've been moving it around as much as I can to keep it from getting to that point. Getting my second dose the 29th of this month.
Hoping I don't experience the same shit you all are mentioning, but we shall see. Just relieved that I can worry a little less about getting my wife sick.
This thread makes me feel like I just came across two Juggalos fucking in an alley.

Got my second Pfizer shot Wednesday. I was fine for the rest of day. The night it got bad. My body started to ache as if I had a heavy session earlier that day, and the adrenaline was wearing off. Then I had a headache. I could not sleep. The next morning the headache was worse. I was extremely fatigued and still sore, on top of just feeling like I had a common cold. I called out of work. By that evening I was fine again.

My first shot had no major effects. But that second one was rough. Today I'm fine. Make sure you schedule accordingly dudes. I'd recommend not having anything too important scheduled the day after.
