Anybody got the second Moderna shot without side-effects?
 
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? :)

We'll find out Tuesday.

Two people at work did, and they are the only ones to have had both shots.

No fever, just knocked-out for 2 days

I had 38 degrees for about 5-6 hours.
My wife had a bit lower fever but still fever.

Arm was a little sore again second time around, but didn't even get the tiredness I had the first time. :)

Had a really slight fever (about 38) for 18 hours or so. That was pretty much it.

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. I'm not 100% sure that the headache was due to the vaccine, though, as I often get headaches due to bruxism and the headache that day felt like one of those. Two 500 mg. Dafalgan tablets finally took the headache away. I think I maybe did get one mild hot flash, but it only lasted a few seconds.

I've been told that it's important to make sure you're well-hydrated when you get the shot and also for the next day or two afterward.

My husband was fine after his second shot and so I thought I might be just fine too. I got that wrong. I had my shot late afternoon. My arm hurt early evening so I iced it. I only started feeling really awful late that night. Fever started, with a headache. Had trouble sleeping.The following day I stayed in bed and took 1g Dafalgan. I wasn't hungry but kept hydrated.

The following day I was fine. I hope you won't have any side effects but if you do, hope they are mild.

My wife got the second jab on Wednesday lunchtime. Thursday she had a fever and was very tired. I had mine Thursday evening. I was tired most of yesterday and today had a fever - 38.2. Now a bit lower.

My arm hurts more than with the first one. That's also waning. Definitely more severe symptoms this time around.

I don't know anyone who's had the second shot and not had some symptoms.

I didn't have any (admittedly with Pfizer).

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.

That's pretty much how it felt in my case. Worth it.

You don't have to complain as in "dramatise" (I agree some folks tend to exaggerate)...just notice the post vaccination effects for scientific purposes. :p

I've had both Moderna shots and didn't have a fever with either of them. However, I did have 'covid arm' and elevated resting heart beat after both. First one was visible from day 6 - 10 after the vaccination, and the second was visible from day 2 - 7. There was no pain or itchy rash, just a large, noticable red patch. Worst side effect with the second was waking up feeling like I'd been punched in the chest the morning after.

Best advice I was given by a mate who got his before me....
Get snacks! ;) ...just in case you do feel a little offside the next day.

I had my 2nd Moderna almost a week ago, in mid-afternoon. That evening when I went to bed I could "feel" something in my arm between the shoulder and elbow, but that was only because I was in bed and thinking about it.

The next morning I woke up somewhat tired, slight headache and my lower back was killing me. I couldn't get comfortable laying down, sitting, standing. I WFH and took advantage of the bed and couch for the first half of the day, as I wasn't mentally 100% and thought that sleeping would help. I guess it did.

Around 14:00, almost 24 hours after my 2nd dose, I felt 98% back to normal, although cutting the grass that night wiped me out like I had never experienced. There have no issues since then.

I will only find out on the 7th of July exactly one day after my 47th birthday. I hope that I will be strong enough to report back. :D

I think I will need to get a six-pack of non-alcoholic Erdinger as a recovery drink.
