    Moderna booster plus flu shot yesterday. Dizzy, achy, headache. A little aspirin and some caffeine has helped big time

    Had a slight sore throat last night. I assume it was from the booster. Definitely fatigued yesterday.

    “Moderna arm” the technical term? She’s a nurse, not a meme expert.
    I’m mostly kidding, but there is a technical term and it’s not just a moderna thing.

    My five year old got his first Pfizer shot yesterday morning and he’s had zero side effects.

    Is there really that much of a difference if I go with a Pfizer or moderna booster?

    from the people I know, it still seems like Moderna booster wrecks people more than Pfizer. Similar to initial doses

    Right but there are folks on here choosing to get moderna now after initially getting Pfizer. Seems silly ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    meh. All three are good vaccines and I could see arguments for why each is the better option depending on who the individual is

    if you are high risk, then maybe Moderna all day

    Like if you have an autoimmune condition you should get Moderna? I'm juvenile diabetic. Googled what to get and it basically said either one is fine.

    It seems like Moderna has always shown higher efficacy. If I were high risk, I’d get Moderna. Idk how accurate that it from a medical perspective

    If I were a woman, I’d steer clear of j&j even though the risk is low

    Adolescent males I could see the argument to not get an mRNA even though the risk is low

    I got j&j initially and would’ve gotten whatever they gave me for my booster. Walmart only had Pfizer when I went so that’s what I ended up with

    no one asks what type of flu shot they are getting unless they have that egg issue. I just see the further we get into boosters in the future, it becomes similar. Probably will see other brands come online in the future as well

    Also not an actual medical opinion, but I think the more info we get, the more equal efficacy ends up being between the three brands. Seems like the clinical trials being different skewed that. If j&j ends up being a double dose, it probably shrinks even more. Moderna being a larger dose also probably plays into it

    Silly is a strange word.

    I obviously don't know all the specific science behind it but I've read/seen/heard from legitimate sources that mixing your booster could potentially help in offering a bit better protection compared to just sticking with one brand. The Pfizer and Moderna have a ton of similarities but also some differences of course and if you have both, one aspect of one of them might be better at helping something than the other and vice versa.

    Bottom line, any booster is good, but if you have the choice to get the opposite of either Pfizer or Moderna for your booster then it may come in handy... especially if there ends up being a new variant at some point that one offers better protection against.

    Got my Pfizer booster this afternoon (to complete the set) and I'm hoping to continue the streak of having no issues.

    Got my booster yesterday and my flu shot. Woke up in the middle of the night feeling as bad as I've ever felt. Luckily, I improved throughout the night. Got lucky with no effects for my first 2 shots.

    Get your boosters!
