I received my 2nd Pfizer, Covid-19 vaccine

I got my 2nd shot yesterday afternoon. No reaction or new symptoms yesterday evening. When I woke up this AM, my vaccine site was tender and that arm achy. I also had a mild headache, and no fever.

I took 2-200 mg, Ibuprofen and within an hour my symptoms were gone. I'll keep you posted, if any of those I stated above, or new symptoms occur.

I had my first shot on Monday. I had tenderness at the injection site up until last night, and that's it.

I had no reaction, other than a sore arm and brief dizziness late that night. It felt like I was on shipboard. I went to bed and it was gone the next day. I've been fine since.

TV MD said there’s like 7-10 days when you could still get infected.
