    My first shot felt like someone dead legged my arm for about 48 hrs. Second wasn't bad at all.

    24 hours post 2nd Pfizer and just arm soreness. Ran 7 miles yesterday a few hours after the shot and have been hydrating like crazy and popping tylenol every 4 hours.

    I am invincible

    My arm is nowhere near as sore as the the first time. The day after my first shot, I walked into the corner of my bathroom door and almost screamed. Today I can already lift my arm up past my head which would’ve been impossible last time. Just ate some lunch and feel a lot better. Still glad I took today off, though

    That’s exactly what her last doctor said and what I’ve been telling her for weeks now. She’s got a case of pregnancy brain because she just can’t make up her mind. She’s not the type of person to ever hesitate on something like this.

    Being pregnant and/or a parent make you consider every risk. Not a bad thing. I’m sure the data backs up the decision to get the vaccine. She’ll be a good mom if she’s hesitant because all she cares about is the health of the baby. I have a daughter and we’ve already started the discussions on if she will get it when she is eligible. Not a fun conversation but worth having.

    Matter of fact her doc encouraged her to get it due to the b117 variant causing a much higher stillborn rate from what she had seen so far. Wife got first shot an hour after that appointment.

    First time took over an hour start to finish. This time I'm in and out in 25. Not sure if it's due to less people coming back, more coming back or coming at 3pm vs 4pm

    Wife is 8 months and just got her second Pfizer. A bit fatigued after 1, all good after 2.

    Doc actually recommended waiting on the whooping cough vaccine to get this done.

    Woke up at 3 am with body ache, headache, chills, and small fever.

    Still in rough shape.

    fwiw the place I got mine (pfizer) said obviously if you need to it is fine to take advil/tylenol but try to hold off from taking them if you can as they will lower your immune response and therefore the overall efficacy of the vaccine for you.

    CDC website says:

    Talk to your doctor about taking over-the-counter medicine, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, aspirin, or antihistamines, for any pain and discomfort you may experience after getting vaccinated. You can take these medications to relieve post-vaccination side effects if you have no other medical reasons that prevent you from taking these medications normally.

    It is not recommended you take these medicines before vaccination for the purpose of trying to prevent side effects.

    Honestly, there is no actual evidence that will happen.
