Thanks. I'm curious what the side-effects usually are, for women after the second Moderna dose. I'm female and am due to have my second dose of the Moderna vax next week, and I want to be as prepared as possible, I guess -- both in terms of being mentally prepared and also to have whatever kind of meds I might need to manage any side-effects (apart from the obvious Dafalgan).
Just knackered, nothing serious. Have some paracetamol ready or a nice glass of wine and go to bed early. As with any vaccination, different per person

Re: Which Vaccine at ZH Oerlikon Messe? Share Experience?

I got a Moderna yesterday’s Oerlikon. My husband had his injection today and also received a moderna. Interestingly he met a friend of ours in the train who had her injection at Oerlikon only two hours earlier than him. She got Pfizer. They both thought it may be an age thing - the friend is in her early 50s. We are in our early 40s.

So difficult to say which one people will get....

Just went tonight and it was Pfizer for both me and my husband.
Pity. My original reservation was there on the evening of 31 as well, but I had to change to another date and center because it didn't suit me. Missed my Pfizer and got Moderna instead.

Usually it's not recommended to drink alcohol or do sport 24 hours after vaccination.

Yeah, I was tired the day after my second Pfizer 11 days ago, had a nap for 45 mins and felt perfect again. No other side effects (except for the usual sore arm for about 48 hrs - but that wasn’t bad either). I also celebrated this event (same day) with a good long freedom power-walk in the forest, followed by a good wine.

Now, 11 days on, it finally feels so good! Have reduced my double FFP2 mask wearing to just one, unless I’m in the supermarket or on public transport. I think, that over time, I will reduce to just one mask . The cool thing is, that life has returned to a level of normality for me in the sense that I don’t get frustrated if some idiot is riding the tram or Seilbahn etc with his mask around his neck etc.

I just think - “that’s YOUR problem”

No. I mean theoretically yes (maybe? exceptional cases), defo not the Swiss way.

They make an appointment for you only in the know that there will be the second dose too. One of the reasons for which the process seemed too slow.
Yes, Switzerland does not have a policy of mixing the type of vaccine administrated. It’s all computerized, so if your first vaccine was Pfizer, your second will also be Pfizer.

Daughters friends (late 20’s) had a second dose of Moderna, and had side effects similar to the flu the day or two after. But no longer than a few hours - next day was fine.
