Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

Me: Sore arm and fatigue on the first; second: less sore arm, no fatigue.

Partner: Literally nothing on the first, not even a sore arm or rash. Second: fever that started 20 hours after the second shot, lasted one day, slightly sore arm.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

1st dose: sore upper arm for one day



2nd dose: Fever, sore arm, headache, tired and feeling generally miserable for exactly 36hrs, then everything stopped magically. For some reason I have more often allergic reactions to pollen since the vaccin, but not sure if there's a causal relationship.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

I felt so little after the second shot I was worried the doctor had given me a placebo, although my arm did hurt for a day or two after wards.

The wife on the other hand felt very unwell the next day, so about 12 hours after the second shot.

As it seems like everybody gets fever after the second shot I was wondering if it's just sampling bias (only those who got side effects complaining) or really the case.

Anybody had it lightly?
I had exactly zero side effects after the first dose, and almost zero after the second (just very little arm pain).

I was confused until I found about this: https://calgaryherald.com/news/local...-in-lethbridge

It's not the worst case. Some people got the whole vial of Pfizer (6 doses).

I can tell by next June 30.

My reference is a hangover when you mix beer, wine and rhum on the same day and without lunch/dinner. If it's worse, I'll complain about the vaccine. If not, well...nothing happened.
Not surprising lol

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

39° temperature and flu-ish symptoms for about 36 hours after the second dose. Would definitely have been enough to take a day off work if it hadn't been a Saturday. "Covid arm" with a big red rash down to the elbow lasted about a week.

Not as bad as real flu though.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

After the first dose I had a sore arm, itch and rash for a few days. I may have had a low temperature as well but didn’t bother to check. After a week I also had swollen lymph nodes and the itch came back for 3 days or so which was normal according to my GP. After the 2nd dose (mid afternoon) the soreness, itch and swollen lymph nodes were noticeably by early evening but lasted less than 24 hrs.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

I myself did not have almost anything after the first shot - a bit of numbness for half an hour, no sore arm.

But the second one was unexpectedly hard, especially given I have usually little to no reaction to vaccines and haven't had fever in 10+ years. I had around 38 fever for a day starting some 12 hours after the shot. It peaked at 38.5. Lots of fatigue, felt really powerless for most of the day. Couldn't peel a potato, that weak.... Nothing particular regarding the arm - it just hurt as much as other parts of my body

As someone mentioned Pfizer: my sister and father didn't have any symptoms with either shots and my mother had some fatigue with the second shot. Overall I hear much less symptoms with Pfizer but not sure how properly such data is collected as none of us reports any of these.

I didn't connect it before but I also started having some pollen reaction since the first dose... not as bad as my husband's but did not have it before...

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

Pfizer for me; first shot very sore arm and very tired, was dreading the second shot but actually it was easier than the first. Hardly any arm pain or tireness and no fever.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

My husband and I have had both of our Moderna vaccinations. Neither of us had anything more than a slight tenderness in the arm. Nothing of any note at all and no more than a flu jab. By midday on the day after the second shot the tenderness went. My youngest son had 2 Pfizers back in January and also experienced nothing more than a sore arm. My other son has had his first Moderna, again, no side effects and his girlfriend has had both Modernas ... again with no side effects.

First Moderna gave me a red painless lump for a day or two below the vaccine point.

I advised the doc when he gave me the second, so he gave me half a dose in each arm.

No swelling on the second jab, but felt „off“ the next day. But nothing else…

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

After the second shot
I got bit fever-ish and my whole face is red, it goes until 18 hours, and then slowly subsides.
No headache.

The fever felt like drinking too much wine, and yeah ... warm and red.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

My arm was *really* painful for a couple of days and I still have occasional pain 'flashbacks'. Since then I've heard of the windmill technique but don't know anyone who tried it.

My gf had her *first* dose and had confirmed fever, headache and general body aches for a couple of days, although didn't seem debilitating. Apparently this could be a sign of her previously having had covid. She's yet to have her second.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

It's been over 3 weeks since I've had my second shot (Moderna).

No effects at all after the first, and only a very slight "arm-awareness" but no pain the first night after the second.

Perhaps I've been given a dud.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

My daughter and son in law both had the Moderna 2nd jabs yesterday morning.
It all seemed to be going well until the evening - my daughter was up all night with a high temperature and they both feel dreadful.

They have no appetite at all and have just slept 3 hours solidly this afternoon. I have mentioned this thread and everyone's experiences and told them it is hopefully only for 24-36 hrs...

I've had both shots of Moderna. With the second shot, I had a sore arm for a day or two afterward (as expected) and a headache the next day, but no fever.

That was me as well. The sore arm started within 15 min of the shot (this also happened to me after the first), I made sure to move the arm and stay hydrated.
I slept well and woke up the next morning with a slight headache and arm pain. Around 18 hours after the shot a wave of fatigue descended on me, and the small joints in my hands started hurting. I took a little nap and an ibuprofen. By the evening of the day after I was at 95%, the next morning at 100%. All in all, much less severe than I feared, and less severe than my husband, who got (the supposedly milder) Pfizer-Biontech shot (fever, headache, muscle ache, chills).
