Moderna Vaccine

Have you taken the moderna vaccine here in Swtizerland and did you experience any side effects that you did not expect (i.e more than just pain in the arm or mild flu like symptoms)? Anything that kept you out of work for one or more days? Thanks for sharing!

Re: Moderna Vaccine

My son had it.

No reaction at all after first dose.
Flu like symptoms and generally feeling unwell for a day or two after the second one.
He spent the day after the second dose alternating between his bed and the sofa and the second day he was just a bit tired. He was totally fine after that.

Our GP said that the side effects are usually more severe in younger people which makes sense as their immune system is better.

Re: Moderna Vaccine

Can we please have a poll on if we have too many separate threads on the vaccines and the virus?

Re: When can we take covid vaccine

Jura now to offer everyone over the age of 16 a vaccine from 6th May. Aargau and Solothurn to follow shortly after. I'm still struggling to understand how this fits in with vaccinating the most vulnerable first, I'm sure many people just haven't registered. Good news though for those who want a vaccine!

Of course it is 20min, so not the brightest readers in Switzerland, but I saw a poll this AM where they asked which vaccine you would prefer to have & almost 50% polled that they didn't want any vaccine.

I think it is a good move for them to open it up to everyone if the most at risk didn't take their chance before. Protect those who want to be protected ...

The vulnerable had February, March and April to do it. Moving on with the vaccination to younger people after 3 months is compatible with the concept of personal responsibility. Anyone in the vulnerable population had the chance, so the ones not taking vaccine is because they don't want.

Or that they weren't aware of what needed to be done in order to get one. Anyway, not worth concerning ones self over what's happened. Everyone who wants one will have one soon. Vaccine production in Visp is getting a huge boost so that should be the end of everything. Time to open the country up in July without restrictions and get life back to normal!

Indeed, just get as many shots in peoples arms as possible, this should reduce the virus transmission across the whole population. Maybe not as ideal as vaccinating the most at risk completely first, but at least it will have an effect on the population as a whole.

If people have been unable or unaware that a vaccination campaign has been ongoing for the last few months, I would be more worried about their mental acuity than their health.

Indeed, covid is the last worry. Getting a legal guardian seems more relevant.

Sore arm for 2-3 days, and then a red area of about 5cm at the injection site, fading over 3 weeks. Small fever, aches, with 24 hours after the 2nd, gone within a day, tired for a few additional days. Happy to be vaxed.

From what I've seen, the mRNA ones appear to have lower side effects and a better end result. I don't know how long you'd be waiting for an AZ one seeing as they're not even approved here yet.

How do you know which one it will be?
Vaccine centres are more likely Biontech/Pfizer at present, doctors etc. usually Moderna.

The Biontech vaccine's cold storage requirements are harder for smaller facilities such as individual doctors to handle.
