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.

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

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

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.

Same here! Really high fever for two days and really tired the day after that,but I don't think the 30 degrees outside helped either.
Just glad it's done and dusted ( well at least until we need a booster jab)

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

Sorry to hear that some people are having trouble with Moderna. I met a friend on Saturday who said that a couple of people in his work team had mild negative reactions e.g. cold/flu symptoms for a day or two - inconvenient and uncomfortable but nothing really bad. I've heard the same from some AZ recipients in the UK.

I've had my two Pfizer jabs here with no side effects at all apart from the usual slight ache in the arm i.e. couldn't sleep on that side for a couple of nights but nothing worse than that.

Which isn't to say that Pfizer is "better" or anything silly like that. It surely depends on the individual. Though for different levels of arm ache I also wonder (pure speculation) if this is partly a matter of skill/experience of the person administering the jab.

I've heard it said a few times that (non-serious) side effects are simply proof that the vaccine is starting to do its job -- which I guess is a consoling way to look at it.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

First shot of the Moderna vaccine 8 days ago and absolutely nothing, I didn't even have a sore arm. I did actually excercise soon after the jab and then again in the evening. It could be that the increased cardiovascular activity helped

You need to repeat this for the second jab and report back!

People experience pain indifferent ways too and have different levels of tolerance. One person's sore arm is another person's usual sore arms after a heavy gym session.

One member wrote something like: I had a fever of nearly 38°C and my wife also had a fever but at a lower temperature than that.

A fever is normally defined as above 38°C.

I'm not trying to belittle anyone's side-effects and will probably get my come-uppance when I have my second jab!

Anybody had it lightly?
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.

Re: Anybody got the second Moderna shot without sideeffecs?

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.

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

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.
