1. Ysy for you!

Thank you for doing your part!

I had my second dose of Pfizer this past Monday. Very relieved to have that done.

2. Just got my first...

Moderna dose a couple hours ago. I told the nurse that I was terrified of needles. I looked away, as I always do, and she was done before I knew it. She was good, never felt it.

I'm thrilled that I can finally get this process going and done. I'll still be wearing a mask and all that until at least mid summer.

5. Same experience with my Moderna shot yesterday.

I was holding up a shirt sleeve very high, since the tech said she prefers to administer it high in the shoulder. Looked away briefly, and she was already rubbing the spot again with an antiseptic wipe. I asked her if she REALLY gave it to me since I never even felt pressure from the needle!

The arm is slightly sore today, though. Very slight and dull soreness that's expanding in size. Felt nothing yesterday.

9. I had...

A bowl of soup and took a nap. Now I feel a slight soreness in the area of the shot but nothing else, really. I hope this will be the extent of it, I hate feeling crappier than my normal crappiness which is considerable but I've come to absorb that level and ignore it most of the time. Anything more than that could be difficult.

Mostly, I'm relieved to be halfway there now.

11. I'm relieved for us too!



The 2nd dose is more likely to result in us feeling ill, from our immune systems reacting to it. No guarantee that will happen, though.

All better than hospitalization or dying!

3. Got the Pfizer a few weeks ago. My arm was pretty sore, but just the day after.

It's good to be halfway there, better than not even started!

16. I got mine at the beginning of the month, scheduled for shot #2 at the end of the month

My arm was a little sore for the rest of the day, that was it. And I was impressed with how efficient the whole experience was, no wait and I only had to wait 15 minutes afterwards and I was on my way.

Good for you and welcome to DU!

I had arm pain for three days with my first Pfizer shot but no other symptoms thank goodness. I'm getting the second one next Wednesday.
