Personal SARS-COV-2 vaccination experiences

One thing that I have found curious and wonder if there is any relation to is the reactions to the shot and age of the person.  It could just be a fluke, but after reading about reactions on this site and 4 people I know over age 70, it seems like their reactions have been pretty benign. Like, yep got it, no headache, fever, etc.  But us 'younger' ones, let's say 60-65 and younger, we seem to have headaches, swollen injection areas, blah feeling for a few days, etc. I have wondered why that is?! Just an observation.

Elderly people's immune systems aren't as robust as those of younger people.

Just got the vaccine! Was just like any other going in lol. Too soon to know about side effects, of course, but I’l keep you posted.

I never expected I'd be getting my vaccine so early -- but I got my first Moderna shot today.   I was at the doctor's with my son for an appointment and it was near the end of the day and th

Got my Blue Envelope!  The appointment is this coming Sunday.  Woohoo!

Moderna dose #2 fifty minutes ago!

Around 30 minutes post shot my cheeks got flushed (warm and red).  Anyone else? (Seems to be calming down already)

I warned my family that I am doing nothing for a few days!

Either way, report back! 

I'll hope for medium symptoms for you -- enough to reassure you that your immune system did stuff, not so many that you'll feel awful! 

Reporting back as requested! Last night was a bit rough. To quote Douglas Adams, it was “unpleasantly like being drunk.”  (Altogether now: “What’s so unpleasant about being drunk? You ask a glass of water.”)
 

In all seriousness, the worst of it for me seems to be the headache. I finally gave in at about 3am and took some ibuprofen, and had another dose a couple of hours ago. My arm is also very sore, and has a red knot the size of a quarter. I’m just being a baby, though. If this is as bad as it gets, I’ll count myself very fortunate!

IRL I have encountered only 2 people who had relatives die of Covid.  Of those 2, one was reportedly fully vaccinated.  So now I am really wondering about the reports that people who are vaccinated are not getting very sick.  I really don't know what to think.

I guess you could decide there’s a vast global conspiracy with all the data showing the vaccine works... or maybe just that the people you know are unlucky. One of the two 😉

Nah.  I had my shots on Saturdays, so he just figured I was taking advantage of Sunday afternoon nap time, and since he had his midweek he wouldn’t have that luxury.

I took both rounds of the Pfizer vaccine with no side effects except for bruising, which is due to fact that my platelet count sometimes drops below 50,000 because of ongoing disease process.  I do not count soreness of arm as a side effect since I expect that quick jab with needle will result in minor temporary soreness.  During my vaxes, I was working around 75-85 hours a week because of our busy season.

I know at least 5 who've lost relatives.  I know of none who have lost vaccinated loved ones.  My mother lives in a senior living complex that has an assisted living section and nursing home.  They've lost no vaccinated residents either.  It  probably is your slice of the sample which is why pooled data is more accurate.

Yesterday was pretty awful (after second dose of Pfizer). The body aches by midday were on par with the one time I’ve had the flu and it was miserable. I feel so much better today except for my armpit pain due to a swollen lymph node. It’s still really tender and uncomfortable when I move, and sleeping was difficult. I’m hoping it goes away soon and I’m going to continue to take it easy the next few days until it feels better.

Both dc get their first dose today!

Dh has his second Pfizer today. He is the last in our family that is eligible to get a shot. He's told his boss he might not make it to work tomorrow, we'll see.

Dh is at 21 hours out from the second shot and is coming home after a half day at work. He has fatigue, aches, feels hot, and a headache.

Whooo-boy. I got my second dose of Pfizer on Wednesday and it has knocked me down for the count.

I got the shot around 4pm, and by bedtime my arm was already aching a lot more than with the first short (which was only mildly sore the day after). I put an ice pack on the injection site and went to bed.

Yesterday I woke up feeling really bad. From shoulder to finger tips, my whole arm was very painful and stiff and tingly. I was nauseous, had a headache, and felt confused...like my mind had a hard time understanding and coming to grips with information, even simple things like what time it was or which drawer my pants were in.

As the day went on my arm got better and the rest of me got worse. By noon, only the injection site was still sore, but I was very nauseous, had a horrible migraine, felt like I had a fever (I didn't, but I felt hot and cold and trembly), and still felt very tired and confused.

My husband took the afternoon off, and I laid in a miserable heap in my bed, exhausted, but in too much pain to sleep. I fitfully dozed from noon until 6 this morning.

Today my arm is all the way back to normal. My stomach is fine, but my head still hurts a bit and is much fuzzier than normal. I'm hoping that a good night of sleep will have me all the way back to normal tomorrow.

I've gotten a sub for my AoPS class for Sunday night after the shot, because I don't feel like risking it. Sounds like serious side-effects are pretty common...

DH and I are getting our 2nd Pfizer shot on Tuesday.  Ya'll are scaring me 😬!  I had zero side effects with the 1st shot.  DH just had a sore arm.

We just lost my FIL yesterday and I just don't know if I have it in me right now to feel any worse than I already do 😩!

Ds got his 2nd Pfizer yesterday. He had some time of fatigue yesterday afternoon, but had to push on because it's getting toward the end of the semester (university). He was fine later on, and today just has a sore arm.

DH got the second dose of Moderna yesterday.  I suggested he clear his schedule for today, but no, he had a meeting scheduled for 3.  About 10 this morning: 

"Why am I so tired?"  "You had your COVID vaccine yesterday."

"Yeah, but I can barely keep my eyes open." "I warned you.  Did you think I was faking it when I slept most of the day after my second dose?"

"No, but I'm really tired."  "I see that."

"I'm going to go lay down for a bit." "Okay.  Do you want me to come drag you out of bed at 2:45, or are you going to cancel your meeting before you lie down?"  

<blank look>  <raised eyebrows>

He cancelled the meeting.

Wow. If only someone had thought to warn him in advance that he might need to cancel that meeting... 😉

I had my 2nd Moderna yesterday early morning.  I felt amazing all day.  I moved my arm a lot more after the shot than I did with my 1st.  My arm was hardly sore at all yesterday.  It is a little sore today, but nothing bad or extreme.  Other than that I feel 100% normal.  

I was really fearing a bad response to it. 

Dh had nothing from either shot. He had the same brand. 

Mentally I feel a huge weight lifted off me.  I am so grateful that we have access to this vaccine.  That the medical community was able to get this so quickly.  And that we were able to get it much earlier than thought.  Not that my behavior has changed post shot at all, but I can feel the weight of it off my shoulders knowing that I am so well protected.

I had my 2nd Moderna on Tuesday. Started feeling a bit foggy brained Tuesday night. Wednesday I had a fever and body aches. Thursday I was still tired, and today I feel fine!

I didn't like the side effects, but it was worth it, because I really don't want to see what happens if I get covid.

No, it isn't. But neither is trying to cast doubts on a vaccine that's going to save a lot of lives due to an unlucky personal sample. 

Do you want personal experiences or not?  The title of this thread is "personal experiences."  Perhaps the title should be edited to clarify that only sunshine and rainbow reports are acceptable.

You are pretty much outright accusing me of either lying or trying to mislead on something very important.  That is not OK.  Even if your intent is to shut out a voice that you disagree with.

"I know one person who has a relative who supposedly died of covid after being vaccinated" is not a "personal vaccination experience."

Saying that because you know someone who knows someone who supposedly had that experience, it makes you doubt the data from multiple countries on literally millions of vaccine doses makes no sense.

No, I'm suggesting that you report things without statements like "So now I am really wondering about the reports that people who are vaccinated are not getting very sick.  I really don't know what to think." 

Saying you know someone who was vaccinated and died is a personal experience and is reasonable to include. And I'm very sorry to hear that this happened, and it's rotten, rotten luck for them and their family 😞 . 

However, the rest of that was totally unnecessary and ignores basically all the data that we have, which seems inappropriate. 

And if you think this thread has been sunshine and rainbow reports, then I don't know what thread you've been reading. We have lots of reports of side effects, including shingles. No one has gotten sick with COVID yet, but I'm sure someone will eventually. That's because 95% is not 100%.

I'm getting my second shot Sunday afternoon and I'm mildly worried about side effects.   I'm getting Pfizer and I had no reaction at all to the first one so I'm hoping this goes well too.  Sunday my daughter is coming over for dinner for her birthday and I need to teach Monday (and the rest of the week).   I am making sure to have all my classes fully prepared so I can rest if I need to when I'm not teaching.

I don’t think there is any “sunshine and rainbows” when we’re talking about Covid, and I certainly haven’t gotten that impression from anything I have read in this thread. 

I truly wish we would see a lot of sunshine and rainbows ahead, but if people don’t get vaccinated and take proper precautions, all I see are more stormy skies. 😞

SKL, I really think you misinterpreted Not a Number’s post. I honestly didn’t get the impression that she was laughing about someone dying, and I don’t think she would ever do that.

Just checked the CDC website and it says that per data as of April 20, about 1% of breakthrough Covid cases have resulted in death.  That is not low compared to the overall CFR for Covid.

I think people should know this is a possibility.  Knowing this, people would probably take more precautions around at-risk individuals, even post-vaccination.

Yes, you'd expect that, I think -- they are on average a lot older than average. (Almost half are 60+.) Older people have a less robust immune response than younger people. So it's not surprising the vaccines didn't take for some of them 😞 . 

Generally, you'd expect this population to be sicker and have more immune issues compared to most of us. So 1% is actually not bad for this population, alas.

I think this is exactly the reason why they're saying you shouldn't just go living large even once you've been vaxxed.  We need to reach herd immunity before we can let our guard down more.

I will be fairly comfortable letting my guard down a bit in smaller gatherings where everyone is fully vaxed.  But large gatherings and out in the general public, I will be staying standard cautious.

I think it's time to start asking for studies proving that the CFR for Covid in vaccinated people is a tiny fraction of the (current) CFR for Covid in non-vaccinated people.  All I've seen in support of this belief is anecdotal info.

That is 1% of the 0.008% who had documented breakthrough cases, or 0.0001% of fully vaccinated people who died of covid.

Why do you figure that should be true? That actually runs counter to my intuition, because I expect breakthrough cases in people with immune issues.

Yeah, indoor dining will still be out for me.  But I will admit to plan to throw caution to the wind and go back to my fitness studio -they are requiring masks and have installed air filtration with virus zapping, as well as having barriers between each spaced-out station.  I wasn't going to risk it even with all that before being fully vaxed, but that's my one thing I'm going to let my guard down on...   I am so.over. home workouts!

In all likelihood, the % of breakthrough cases is much higher than 0.008%. Let's assume the true rate is more like 5%, which would suggest 4.35 million breakthrough cases out of 87 million fully vaccinated patients. The 88 patients who died after being vaccinated represent 0.002% of breakthrough cases, which is significantly lower than the death rate for the unvaccinated.

Well, the true rate shouldn't be 5%, because most haven't been exposed yet...

I don't like to play moderator (not my place), but . . .  there is a vaccine thread for discussing vaccine stats, studies and things like that. This one is supposed to be about personal vaccination experiences. Can we please keep it that way? I'm going to hit "submit" and then come back and edit this with a link to the vaccine thread.

People keep posting about how even if you do get Covid after a vax, the vax will work to make it a very mild case.  People are posting that they observe that nobody hospitalized for Covid has been vaccinated.  This is apparently untrue, misleading, and dangerous.

I am an old time boardie who has chosen to lurk this year for the covid info. I felt like I should come out of hiding for this thread so NotaNumber can add my data to her compilation.

I had my 2nd dose of Moderna yesterday. Unfortunately, I agreed to let a student nurse practice on my arm. Got a "scared to do it" slow push through the skin instead of a jab and a lot of painful jiggling of the needle due to shaking hands. Poor guy. He was practically in tears when he saw the blood and realized I was going to bruise pretty badly. The RN supervising was actually chatting with someone else, so not helpful. 

At any rate, I had sore arm and strong fatigue that resolved within 48 hrs with the first dose. I am not getting that lucky this time. My arm has a visible, hard knot, tingling and numbness when not on fire. Tylenol and anything else over the counter does not abate it at all. Ice helps, but only limited because the pain is so bad I can tolerate the ice pack against it for at most three or four minutes. I am currently running a fever of 103F and just woke up from a five hour nap. I am home alone so going six hours without something to drink has resulted in some dehydration. I have gone to refill my water bottle, which made me cold so my teeth are chattering, and am back in bed where I belong. Despite the hassle of being sick and in pain - totally normal for me, my body goes bananas over any vax - I am elated! We can breathe easy.

 

Dh had JnJ and one would have thought he did not even get a shot. Typical for him. Middle son had JnJ at his grad school campus before the pause. Youngest and eldest sons have appointments next week on Friday for Pfizer. Youngest needed to wait until after his last final exam in case he does a repeat of me. Eldest boy had his master's thesis to submit this month and has secluded himself from the world until he submits it Tuesday. He has been a vaccine reactive, miserable person his whole life. Every single vaccine. Poor guy. Since we will be gone, he is going to grandma's house post vaccine. This is the boy that had a fever of 104.5 and tried sleeping for 18 hrs straight after his measles booster to move to campus as an undergraduate. He sleeps so deep, it is difficult to wake him, so grandma knows to wake him up frequently to force fluids.

Both of the grandmas had Pfizer in Jan/Feb. Our daughter and son in law each have their first doses. So this just leaves our two young grandsons. But now we will be able to gather safely and enjoy time with them because we will all be protecting them with our vaxes. I cannot wait for our summer family camping trip! N is a real miniature fisherman and has lots of plans for being on the boat with his PapaM (Dh).
