I had the J&J 1 dose version a couple weeks ago.

Had a moderate fever and general crappy feeling for about 8 hours the day after then felt fine.

Still not getting the promised 5G data speeds into my brain I was promised but you get what you pay for.

My second Moderna shot caused three days of moderate arm pain. The first one caused two days of mild pain. There were no flu symptoms.

I haven't been shot, but I'll add my SO to the data points. She had the Pfizer, both shots, and pretty much no reaction other than mild arm soreness from either.

"Partially vaccinated, felt buzzed for about an hour or so."

Sorry, didn't see my choice above.


Was it a reaction? Of course? Did I mind? Not at all, dude.

My wife and I received the Pfizer vaccine, both shots.

We were fine first jab, second shot showed some symptoms 24 -72 hours later. Like having a mild cold, just used Tylenol to manage.

The younger you are, the more likely you will have a reaction to the second shot.

If you have had COVID, the first shot has the same potential side-effects.

PS The symptoms from the second shot would not have physically precluded travel at all except that we might have shown mild fever making others concerned.

Both shots of Pfizer caused prolonged periods (several days) of fatigue but no pain or muscular discomfort at the inoculation site.

I had my first Pfizer shot a couple weeks ago. My arm was SUPER sore that night. Next day, nothing.

Wife had the Pfizer shot yesterday around lunchtime. She complained this AM that her FOOT hurt most of the night. Definitely not a normal thing so maybe the vaccine? Who knows.

I had Moderna...first shot brought a sore arm for two days. A day after the second shot I felt crappy in the afternoon and went to bed early, Fine next day.

Spouse Moderna first shot had the sore arm for a couple of days. The second shot brought fever, welt on her arm (docs call it 'Covid arm'), and a rash that went for two days.

Nothing but injection site pain, which was minor. Doesn’t really count as a reaction. Fully vaccinated since January.

Pfizer vaccine.

Wife and I both had simultaneous shots three weeks ago. Felt a bit punky and arm sore the day after but OK since - until this week. Just left her in hospital (limited visitors) after an ER visit. Unexpected kidney, blood pressure and neurological issues probably more age than vaccine related. Multiple tests, multiple specialists and an interceding weekend.

Hoping!

I was lucky to get vaccinated with an unused, expiring dose of Pfizer over a month ago, and then scheduled and received the 2nd dose just over two weeks ago.

After the first dose I felt giddy and elated and a little dizzy... with the dizziness maximized about 4 hours later into a moderate vertigo which could have been psychosomatic. I went to bed and slept it off. The next couple days I felt vaguely achey in my bones.

The second dose had somewhat less dizziness, and again achey bones starting about 12 hours after the dose until about 48 hours after the dose. I kept expecting the hit of full, severe illness that many have reported.

All of this was exceedingly MILD given the consequences we have all suffered over the past year from COVID-19.

EDIT: I suppose this "dizziness" could have been Deckeda's "mildly buzzed" feeling... there was a tremendous feeling of RELIEF far outweighing any vague nominal feeling of illness, which was extremely slight compared to any actual illness I've had in my life. It was like when you start to sniffle just a little and get that tickle at the back of your throat and you KNOW you've got a cold coming on, only a tenth of hundredth the severity of that feeling.

Older family members who have each been fully vaccinated reported getting sick for the better part of a day after their second dose. One received Moderna and was sick about 3-4 days later. The other Pfizer and was sick 2 weeks later... which may likely not be vaccine related at all.

matt,

You phrased your selections very poorly. I think of the word "ill" as noticeably sick. That doesn't sit my reactions to the vaccine.

I received my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine about three weeks ago. I had very mild reactions to the first jab. The phrase ill wouldn't describe them.

Received my second dose yesterday afternoon. Mild reactions so far. Ill doesn't describe them. Couldn't even say if all of the reactions are due to the vaccine or just my normal health issues.

Wife received Pfizer last week, was tired the next day.

Very slight tenderness at the injection site, otherwise nothing. Unfortunately, I guess my 70 y.o. immune system mostly ignored the vaccine.

Are you sure you did not get COVID already? Your symptoms sound like you already are sensitive to the spike protein epitope.

Hope the second dose goes well!

Sekker,

A friend of mine who recently had the Moderna vaccine developed tinnitus simultaneously with an ear infection. The infection was resolved quickly with antibiotics but the tinnitus persists. It's improving very slowly.

The ENT he went to for the infection said he's noticed a increase in cases of tinnitus in those who've had the Covid vaccine. He didn't say which vaccine they had in them, just that he's noticed what appears to be a correlation between receipt of the vaccine and an increase in cases of tinnitus. But, as we know, correlation doesn't equate causation.

In the case of my friend, it might have been due to the infection, the vaccine, or possibly even a combination of the two. Or, the tinnitus might have developed for some other reason and just happened to hit around the same time had had both the ear infection _and_ the vaccine.

Last week the founder of the Texas Roadhouse chain of restaurants committed suicide we are told because of the lingering effects of COVID including unbearable tinnitus. That was from the disease, not the immunization though I suppose it is possible there is a connection.

I was surprised at the relief I felt after getting the first shot (Pfizer). Second shot and especially two weeks after was more a feeling of the job is done.

Only felt arm soreness for a few days after the first Pfizer shot, but the second dose brought on chills, fever, absolutely awful headache and muscle pain all over. No way I could work. Everything got better after about 24-30 hours. One other effect didn't appear until 3 days later: a swollen lymph node near my collarbone on the shot side. It went away within a week, but was a bit unsettling.

I echo the relief Don C. felt, and am so glad to have gotten the shots.

I had a very strong reaction after the first Moderna shot because I had just recovered from Covid two weeks prior to the vaccination. I had relatively high fever, headache and joint pain and was pretty much out of commission for about 30 hours. I also had "Moderna arm" which is a rash at the injection site and my arm was sore for about a week (very sore for a couple days and then gradually faded). The effects were worse than they needed to be because I thought it would only last 8-12 hours and I decided not to take anything and just "ride it out." After about 18 hours I got wise and took something to reduce the fever instead of sitting around being miserable.

They say more people have reactions to Moderna. I've also heard normally with Moderna you have a stronger reaction to the second shot, but if you've already had Covid then it's the first shot that gets you.

1st Moderna shot, felt progressively worse with "flu like symptoms" as the day wore on. Felt better in the morning, but not great. Felt progressively better through the day.

I haven't had the flu in 15 years, so it was a pretty tough slog.

It's absolutely true that correlation <> causation.

Also, this isn't correlation, which is a statistically established link between two empirically observed phenomena.

This is anecdote plus intuition, which is a notoriously inaccurate way to describe any scientific phenomenon, especially medical ones. One ENT's observations does not a correlation make.

Also, if the ENT is noticing it, there might be nothing to it. Time will tell, but there's no reason to think either is true. That's my point - it's just a rumor that can serve to discourage vaccination right now, and spreading it without any real knowledge carries risk.

The increase in tinnitus is something he is seeing as a medical professional who deals with it as a part of his practice. You could say for him, it is a real-world fact regardless of whether or not science has confirmed a correlation or causation. That to me makes his noting the increase in cases of tinnitus a step above a rumor.

Robert

But you don't have any idea whether he is unconsciously associating higher numbers of reports of tinnitus with the onset of covid vaccinations, instead of, for example, the fact that the aging population is 'booming' right now as Baby Boomers reach the age when they first report hearing loss. Or, whether he is misidentifying a connection with pandemic-related increased earphone/earbud (mis)use as related to covid vaccines.

The "real-world fact" here is that your ENT has noticed more reports of tinnitus lately. That's the only fact here. I think you are making the mistake of conflating his expertise in tinnitus with an ability to determine whether a covid vaccine is a likely cause.

His credentials as a physician do not make him any more qualified to determine a correlative or causal relationship between vaccinations and tinnitus than I am, or you are. And our speculations would be nothing more than rumor. That determination needs to be made by vaccinologists and other experts who track adverse events following vaccination, not by lay people or professionals with irrelevant skills.

Not at all. I would think his credentials as an ENT definitely allows him to make that statement since tinnitus and its causes are a part of his expertise. He specifically noticed the increase immediately after the vaccines were released to the public. That may not be good enough for you but it is apparently sufficient for him to note it as a _possible_ cause and make him raise an eyebrow. He didn't say likely cause or the cause. He said possibly another cause. He has not suggested _anyone_ avoid taking the vaccine as a result of his observation.

He has no expertise in vaccines. His 'observation' that tinnitus reports could be caused by vaccines is exactly as valuable as me saying the same thing.

And, vaccine specialists lack his expertise in tinnitus and its causes. As much as you are dismissing the observations of an ENT, at least he is an expert in his field which includes causes of tinnitus. His observation absolutely has more weight than yours.
