I had my first Moderna vaccine on March 15th, and my second shot on April 15th. The only issue I had was a slightly sore arm both times. My husband, who has a great immune system had a fever, headache and chills for about 12 hours after his second shot. Less than the flu.

My daughters, who are both teachers, had the Pfizer starting in February. No reactions at all for either of them. Same for everyone else in my extended family.

Honestly, the main thing all of us felt after getting the shot was a sense of relief. I felt safe going out and doing things for the first time in 16 months. The vaccine is a good thing. The more people who get it, the sooner we can get back to normal.

Good luck. Stay safe.

Hi, JO. I got the Moderna vaccine in March and April. After the second dose I had 1 1/2 days of fever and a half-day of mild headache. I took these as signs that my immune system was having a proper response; that is, I was gaining immune defense against covid. My arm that had the injection was sore for several days. I have had no new health problems.

Hi, JO. My husband and I both got the Moderna vaccine-him in February/March and me in March/April. He felt kind of draggy for about 6 hours after both the first and second shots. I took s nap for a couple of hours after the first shot, but had no issues at all after the second one. My daughter also got the Moderna vaccine. She had no issues at all with the first shot, but felt crappy for about 12 hours after her second shot. My three granddaughters had the Phizer vaccine. Other than s sore arm, they have had no issues at all.

Like Trishyla said, the sense of relief has been the most noticeable effect. I wish you luck with your decision

My spouse and I had skin rashes after receiving the Pfizer vaccine. I had the vaccine in Feb and March. After the first injection, I had a skin rash on both lower legs. I went to see the dermatologist before the 2nd injection. Preliminary I was diagnosed with a livedo reticularis. I had a bunch of tests that came back negative for all sorts of explanations. I had a difficult time deciding to have the 2nd injection, which I did despite my condition being worrisome. I would say by mid April, no longer having the rash. The dermatologist believes the rash basically was my bodies response and not to be alarmed. My spouse had covid arm after the first injection approx 7 days later and went away before the 2nd injection. Basically he was informed the same thing, bodies response to the injection. He did not have this response to the second injection. Even though we both had adverse reactions, I would do it again, so would my spouse. However I am not ready to consider a "booster" unless there is compelling evidence to do the same.

My husband and I both had vaccinations in March and early April. His was Moderna; mine was Pfizer. Our reactions were very similar, a little tired and a sore upper arm after the first one. After the 2nd we each had mild flu-like symptoms, very tired, a bit achy, a low fever, all of which cleared by 30 hours later.

Your doctor is the best one to recommend whether or not you should be vaccinated, given your health and other personal circumstances. . Please consult with your doc and make the decision based on professional expertise.

I had Pfizer in May with zero issue but a sore arm. I had moderna in July ( In Canada there was a shortage and were basically encouraged to get what you're given as there was no guarantee there would ever be enough supply to wait for the same vaccine you were given the first time). After Moderna, my arm was wicked sore, and about 12 hours after I got tired, achy, and ended up with a fever. It lasted about 20 hours if I had to guess, but I didn't feel terrible.

I will say I am experiencing some health issues, but they began before the vaccine, so I don't consider them related at all. I would get the vaccine again if I had to.

My immediate family and extended family are all vaccinated. My SIL (stage I BC) is a COVID nurse and was one of the first to be vaccinated.

My husband had Astrazeneca/Pfizer, and my 2 adult daughters had Pfizer. All 3 had fatigue for less than 2 days.

I had my first Moderna shot in April that triggered a severe skin rash away from the injection site. We believe this is a result of getting the vaccine during my Ibrance cycle (lowers blood counts/causes rashes) while I already had a rash from a bug bite. After the shot the rash spread even more. It started to heal during 3 weeks off of Ibrance, but then it got worse after I started Ibrance again. I stopped Ibrance, and the rash has healed with the help of prescription ointments. I considered not getting the second dose until I saw the Delta variant was causing serious illness unless fully vaccinated. I got the second dose of Moderna 12 days ago. I had chills the first night and woke up warm the next morning. I got my shots in my thigh and did get the inflamed injection site both times that lasted less than a week. Tylenol and ice packs helped. In the first few days I put steroid cream on an emerging rash to nip it in the bud. Throughout all this my LE arm was unaffected.

I'm at a large cancer centre, and they've had no one else react like I did. I am prone to rashes, and I've had worse. I was scared to get the second dose, but I felt prepared to handle the side effects and did.

I'm relieved that I've been able to get both doses, but I think my family feels better. They're less worried about possibly bringing the virus home. If it happens, I'm less likely to be hospitalized.

Jo - The risk of a rash is extra worrisome for you. For me getting the rash was very uncomfortable, but not as life threatening. I considered not getting the second dose, and at first my MO didn't want me to get it. With the push to loosen restrictions and the new variants being more transmissible, I felt there was a good chance I'd be exposed eventually to the virus. The virus can also trigger a rash among other things.

It's up to you to weigh your risks. If you decide to get the vaccine, I recommend getting it in your thigh and have prescription creams/ointments ready to apply at the first sign of a rash. Perhaps a dermatologist can recommend a cream for your skin graft.

I also want to add that I believe I had Covid19 in November 2019, before it was known what it was. I've never felt worse in my life, not even during the worst of my eleven months of chemo or when I had a completely collapsed lung after my mastectomy.

The fatigue was crushing. I could barely lift my head off a pillow, and I felt I was trying to breathe with concrete in my lungs. By Covid19 standards, that would be considered a relatively mild case. I can't imagine it being worse than that.

I've also known two people who died of Covid19. The first was a neighbor who was also a science teacher at our high school. He got sick during our worst surge in October 2020. He spent three days in a tent in a hospital parking lot because there were no beds available anywhere in the hospital. This wasn't some rinky dink little rural hospital. This was a major trauma center in Los Angeles. He lingered for two months on a ventilator before he finally died at the age of 56.

The other one was my neighbor of eighteen years; the kindest human being I've ever known. She was raised as a Seventh Day Adventist and didn't think she needed the vaccine. She thought her immune system was strong enough to protect her. It didn't and she died fighting to breathe. She'd be here today if she'd had the vaccine. I miss her terribly.

I know there are concerns about the vaccine when you have other health issues. But the reality of Covid19 is far, far worse for most people than the side effects of the vaccine.

I had both doses of Pfizer in Jan 2021 (first responder). The first one gave me a sore arm for about 2-3 days. The second gave me a sore arm for about a week. It didn't impact any daily activity, but was sore if I touched the injection site.

I have had absolutely no side effect from the vaccine over the last 7 months and given the chance, I'd do it a million times again. I'm waiting for the booster to be offered and I will be one of the first to stand in line and roll up my sleeve.

I don't want to scare you, I do believe there are more pros than cons. The majority of people are very happy with the vaccine results.

JO, you need to seek out and follow the advice of the doctor in charge of the skin graft, since that seems to be what is causing you (and your doctor) concern. Your care team is who knows how to best advise you. The day will come when you can get the vaccine without a lot of worry, but that day doesn't seem like it is "now."

You can do many things to limit your risk of getting Covid which I am sure you are already doing. Most importantly, keep your hands clean and wear a mask when you are around any unvaccinated person or go to a place where people are gathered indoors.

I think the only reason I did not get Covid prior to being vaccinated was due to washing my hands and wearing a mask! I was around so many who tested positive!

Lilly,

You are not scaring me. Thank you for being honest. I have talked to soooo many that have said " something is just not right." My own daughter is having heart palpitations and eye problems and was very healthy before the vaccine.

Alice,

You said (It's an interesting thread to read, but I'm really curious why anyone would want to hear from strangers on a web site but doesn't want any links from science sites or epidemiologists.) I understand your question. The answer is...because I would like to hear some personal experiences hoping they are all being straight forward and truthful, and I think I have read all the links from science and epidemiologist, and even they do not all agree.

I have also read several blogs where many are having really bad reactions to the vaccine. I think some are afraid to speak out so I decided to see what the ladies on BCO were experiencing.

Mavericksmom,

The PS that did the graft is no longer in the picture. He moved away.

I am washing hands, sanitizing, wearing a mask when necessary, and have actually been exposed and did not get it. I will continue to do all I can.

Thank you all.

Jo,

Your medical issues not withstanding, things that you read on blogs are anecdotes. Anyone can write whatever they want and there will be no data to back it up. Who is afraid to speak out and why would they be afraid? What things do scientists and epidemiologists disagree on regarding the vaccine?

Look, even aspirin can have adverse effects for some. If you don't have faith in science or evidence based research (which is not perfect!) that's your prerogative. But I simply can't understand putting greater weight on blogs, things you've heard without verification orother anecdotal evidence.

All of my colleagues (100+, we all got our shots at the same time/place), all of my health care providers, all of my family, and most of my friends are vaccinated. If anyone had a reaction to the shots, it wasn't significant enough to mention or severe enough to keep them out of the office or away from normal activities.

Jo - Seems like you're not really considering getting the vaccine but just looking for bad reactions to justify your decision. Whatever. But have your daughter check into magnesium supplements if she's got heart palpitations and eye tics.

exbrnxgrl,

I am well aware of all that.

I just truly wanted to hear what reactions ladies on here had that took the vaccine, nothing more.

Serenity,

See my answer to exbrnxgrl above. That is all I want to know, just reactions good or bad to the vaccine.

Thank you ... my daughter is taking magnesium. She says the palpitations are getting better.

The reason I phrased the very first post the way I did was hopefully to just get some input on how people on here reacted to the vaccine....nothing more....nothing less.

Thanks to all of you that just told me how you reacted. I appreciate that very much.

I worry that threads like this could sway someone on whether to get the vaccine or not. Slippery/dangerous slope.
