IMPORTANT - YOUR REPORT IS QUEUED - IT MAY TAKE UP TO 12 HOURS FOR YOUR REPORT TO SHOW ON OUR HOME PAGE (IF NOT OPTED AS PRIVATE)
I'm now at day 5 after the second shot. The swollen/red area at the injection site faded rapidly yesterday and just became mildly itchy instead. The fatigue and nausea I think are worse than the first shot for me, sleeping about 12 hours per day and feeling nauseous if I eat or smell food. I've eaten much less than usual the past few days and lost a couple of pounds. However I did not get a headache this time like I did with the first dose. The body aches and fever were the same as the first dose and didn't continue for longer like this fatigue and nausea are. I think today I will probably feel better and I'm hoping I'll be normal by day 7.

“My first shot was last Wednesday (1/13). I only experienced some arm soreness that night and even more the next day. By Friday all was normal. I am awaiting dose two. I expect some side effects for 24 hours after dose 2, as my brother who is an IM doctor got feverish and achy with some nausea and w... e react similarly to vaccines. He was fine after about 36 hours. I will take a day of symptoms over my life any day. I hope this helps somebody. ”

“I have a history of food and drug allergies, so I had some anxiety about this, but my experience was actually pretty great.
My arm soreness with the covid vaccine was less duration than it is with flu or tetanus.
Soon after the 1st covid vaccine dose, the pain in my bicep was pretty intense wi... thin a few hours, and also I had some throbbing in my armpit (axillary lymph nodes swelling a bit) and odd ache in my leg joints...it makes no sense...maybe the hip and leg joint pain wasn't related, could have been sitting oddly when nervous, or something, not sure.
I did have a dime or nickel sized red dot near the vaccine site, not sure when it appeared, I didn't see it until about 1-2 hours post-vaccination when i removed the bandaid, but the spot disappeared within hours. About the same time the spot resolved is when the armpit throbbing/swelling resolved, too.
Anyway, the arm pain and armpit swelling resolved mostly within 24 hours, completely gone by 48-60 hours, so that was great. Flu shot pain lasts almost a week for me, and tetanus shot pain lasts a week, so this seems less intense than those other vaccines. With flu and tdap, i'll wake up in the night if i roll over on that vaccinated arm, but that didn't happen with this vaccine. Covid vaccine was very painful in bicep for about 6 hours, then quickly minimized to become less painful than flu shot and tdap shot.
I did feel fatigued the next day, but overall, my symptoms were milder than after the flu vaccine, but I am expecting the 2nd dose to cause more of a reaction.
Overall, my experience was good, was as I expected it to be. I did expect to experience some symptoms, so I wasn't concerned. ”

“Had my 1st Pfizer shot yesterday, through the night I was hot and cold, started getting breathless and ached all over. Within 2 hours of my vaccination my arm was very heavy and dead but started feeling better within 24hours. ”

“Only a sore arm for two days after each shot. Feeling great. ”

“My experience at the Greenville Prisma old Kmart location was superb! The workers and nurses could not have been more helpful and friendly. A nurse named Christina administered my vaccine and I didn’t even know when she inserted the needle. She was so sweet and gentle. I had no effects from the vac... cine and no sore arm. I am happy to have had such a good and organized facility with top notch people!! ”
