Default COVID vaccine

Has anyone taking the COVID vaccine yet? Did you have any side effects? I had a first dose about a week ago with no significant side effects except for sore arm. I expect to have the second dose two weeks from now. I am feeling a little bit apprehensive. Please share your experience and thanks.

OP: Sorry you have not gotten a reply, I would have thought someone here had gotten one.

Hi OP, sorry I don't come on here as much as I used to since it's not too active. I have received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. I had some pretty intense body aches for about 36 hours with that. I get my second later this week and can report back after that unless you're getting yours before I do.

I work in healthcare and I've had colleagues get anything from zero side effects to just a sore arm to full on flu-like symptoms with high temps for 2-3 days. Most fell in the middle with some aches, soreness, maybe a headache or lowgrade temp for a day.

The important thing to remember is that even if you feel awful it's not a bad thing, it means your body is doing what it should and building antibodies to fight covid.

No. I have yet gotten the 2nd shot. . It is expected to be next week. I will report my experience after I get it. I am surprised there are not much responses.

In Belgium about 3% I think has had their first dose. Ursula Von der Leyen just admitted failure in getting vaccines for the EU, depending too much on the companies being able to fulfill the request. So we are basically behind, big time. I think we'll still be vaccinating people in December this year!

If I can get it, I will, no doubt. I'm not anti-vaccination at all, on all levels.

Due to Covid, I got my first flu shot this past year. My parents (who are mid-70s) got it too. At least we won't have to worry about that, making the distinction should not be too hard, should we "get something". I sure hope not! Oh, my parents had no issues. My arm was quite sore. And that's my "good" arm.

I sometimes check this board, but not too often. Sorry guys; will get back to you once I get vaccinated. I think I'm risk group, but not sure. They are talking about March, but I fear that is far faaaar too optimistic. That's a couple weeks from now, and they still haven't vaccinated first line workers, who are rightfully angry!

It is a total mess here, I can tell you that much!

And we did buy the vaccines, but the companies won't deliver, are backed up. I find it odd that the US apparently *does* have those deliveries, but we (EU) don't!!!

Ok, so I got my second shot this morning. So far, flushed face and sore arm and got super nauseated 10 mins after the shot but I have a very weak stomach. Nothing major.

Both of my parents (early 70s) got their second on Monday. Mom had a sore arm, dad had nothing until Weds when he felt flu-like but not enough to stay home from the golf course.

My coworkers who have had it have ranged from absolutely no side effects to in bed with 103-104 degree fevers for 2-3 days. Oddly enough the younger you are the worse you seem to fare with this. There are theories behind it and we're researching why but the current theory is stronger immune system = stronger immune responses.

I'll report back in a few days with any additional side effects

Hi All,
I had my Pfizer 2nd Covid vaccine shot a little over two weeks ago. Beside having a sore arm, I did not have any Covid side effects. However, it did flare up my RSD symptoms including a little bit more pain in my both hands and resurgence of burning pain in both arms, right side is more affected than the left. The strange thing is that the shot was in my left arm. I did take celecoxib and an extra dose of lyrica for a few days after the first shot and use some numbing patch trying to reduce the sensitivity.
I donít think I will need any additional treatment for my RSD symptoms but will monitor it. Hopefully it will return to baseline.

We are *so* behind here in Belgium with vaccines... you don't wanna know.

Also, they are trying to push the Astra Zeneca vaccine on us, and nobody wants it! (also see what happened in Austria --> clotting issues, even an embolus leading to death)

I want a choice in what vaccine I get, at least!

Not even 5% of the adult population has had their first shot, and a couple of % of that has had a 2nd shot.

It's a joke down here. And we "only" have 11 million people in this country.
Ridiculous! And quite shameful!

Wow CRPSbe, that's awful. About 10-12% of my state's population has been vaccinated fully, with another 6% receiving one dose so far. It's ramping up rapidly here. Hopefully it will follow over there soon.

Love Belgium - such a pretty country.
