A Shot in the Arm-Post your vaccination pic

Recommended Posts

You're having a good week, Mike, between getting the shot and Sunni's citizenship! :party Congratulations!

 

The first shot shouldn't give you much reaction but plan to take it easy for a couple days when you get your 2nd.

Thanks, Donna! 🤗

Got my second shot yesterday morning.  I'm lucky.   Other than a sore arm, I haven't had any side effects.

Washington just opened up vaccine eligibility to all over age 16 yesterday. Of course getting an appointment is absolute mayhem. I'm glad I was able to get started a month ago. I'm getting my second shot of Moderne on Saturday. I anticipate that it is going to put me out of commission for a few days. I got really sick for 3 days after the first one. Pretty sure the reason is I have to take a lot of exotic drugs (chemo, etc) & they don't mix well with vaccines. I usually don't feel well after the yearly mega-flu shot & was pretty ill after getting the shingles vaccine. Vaccine has to be done though. Fortunately (in this instance anyway) I don't have to worry about work as I had to retire on disability 2 years ago. I'll put up with being sick for a few days if it means I can leave my apartment & interact with people some after over a year of isolation.

I get the 2nd one Monday. I've read a lot of people don't feel so good after that.

 

My sister got her second (pzifer) yesterday.  Said her arm is still crazy sore and she was awake all night with body aches.  I'm getting mine this afternoon, so planning a weekend of Tylenol and sleep!

For what it worth, out of the 24 or so people I know who had their 2nd shot - 2 had issues - nothing major, just felt like crap. Out of those two, one had Pfizer and the other Moderna.  

 

My 2nd shot is on this Tuesday -- which happens to be 4-20 --- afterwards I am going to have a smoke and relax. Will wait for the end of the month to finally have beer at my local pub.

I logged four miles on a treadmill and cycled for 30 minutes last night after my second Pfizer shot. I feel fine. My arm isn't even sore like it was after my first shot.
