Other than a numb left arm and a loss of taste and smell, the shot went great!

I kid. No side effects so far. Frankly, I'm worried they gave me a placebo.

My arm starting hurting way more than I expected about 3 hours later. It feels bruised, and tight. That is it so far (about 5 hours in).

So far only the slightest soreness in my arm after 7+ hours.

My arm still hurts quite a bit this morning. Only if I raise it or touch it, though.

Did the Dr tell you to not do that, so then you wouldn't have pain? ;)

My arm soreness is very mild. Other than that, nothing so far. I don't know if this helped or not but I made a big point of really relaxing my arm when getting the shot.

By the way, the huge increase in vaccine distribution over the last 2 months or so has been a HUGE help. But certainly not the time to declare victory...

Nice. Let us know if you have any side effects. From what I've heard, it's worse on the 2nd and it seems like the younger you are, the worse the side effects like tiredness, headaches, and chills.

I had very quick onset of shoulder pain, just like the first one. But the dude was in a hurry and didn't even give me a chance to relax my arm.

I knew some folks that were told to take tylenol arthritis (which is just extended release acetaminophen) to help. I took that a couple hours after getting the shot and so far I haven't had any side effects except being tired. I think if I can get through the first 24 hours without anything worse than that, I will be good. Just about 4 more hours to go.

Got my Moderna 2nd shot on Friday at 3:30 pm. I was fine until I woke up in the middle of the night with chills and probably a slight fever although I didn’t take my temperature. They told me you could take Motrin or Tylenol so I took a couple Motrin and went back to bed. Half woke up later in the morning having sweat it out. Finished sleeping. Today I was a little achy and preventatively took some more Motrin at two different times of the day. Saturday night I was fully back to normal. Although watching the Suns game didn’t help any. ;)

Haha, that's a great scene. Enjoy your time out, and let's hope it's not the only time in the next 14 months.
