29. I had similar side effects to both doses.

Temp nearing 102. Chills out of proportion to the fever. Fatigue and general achiness. The achiness was worse with the second one - especially my hips. Nausea with the first one but not with the second. I did not go to work the next day, both times. I'm a nurse practitioner in a pediatric office, and we are not supposed to go to work with fevers. About 36 hours of symptoms both times.

Large roughly rectangular area of redness in my arm after the second dose - about 2 inches wide and got to be 5 inches long. Quite itchy.

I also noticed a metallic taste in my mouth. That is resolving. No loss of taste or smell.

I had the virus itself in early December, and those symptoms, which came and went for 10 days, were somewhat milder than those from the vaccinations. I figure my immune system, having already battled the actual virus, responded to the first shot as if it were the second one.
