Re: COVID Vaccine Side Effects

Another week has passed without side effects for me. I'm hoping all is going well and I will pass through this event unscathed. Good to see so many of you also reporting no adverse effects.

Re: COVID Vaccine Side Effects


Pleased to report good news; however, I go nowhere and see no one because I have
a compromised lung capacity due surgery some 8 years ago.

I don't see this self-imposed restriction changing in the near future.

Stay very safe.


Re: COVID Vaccine Side Effects

Got the Pfizer booster on September 29th. No side effects except for a slightly sore arm.


Re: COVID Vaccine Side Effects

Good news Rick! Praying for that to continue. Barb & I had our Moderna shots in Feb/Mar and the Booster recently. Also had the Flu Vaccine the day before the Booster. No side effects after any of them. Recently battling afib. Have been shocked once and most recently packed with amiodarone. Both put me back in Sinus Rhythem but back in afib a day or so later.

Re: COVID Vaccine Side Effects

Another take on the Pfizer COVID vaccine booster shot.

Two days ago I received my third Pfizer COVID vaccine jab (booster shot). While there I asked my pharmacist if I could receive the flu shot at the same time. He indicated I could and that I had the option of receiving both shots in one arm or one shot in both arms. I chose the latter. I’m happy to report that 2 days later I’ve had absolutely no side effects; not even mild soreness around the injection sites.

I’m not sure if this is an old wives tale, Navy urban legend or a scientific fact. But years ago at Barbers Point, Hawaii a Senior Chief Corpsman suggested I go for a long run immediately after receiving the flu vaccine. He said the heavy cardio would help “push” the vaccine through my system thereby eliminating any possible side effects. I did; it worked; and I have followed that advice ever since for every vaccination (flu, pneumonia, tetanus, shingles, COVID etc.).

I’m no longer a runner but I did go for a 1-hour walk at the local park, Mount Trashmore immediately after leaving the Rite Aid on Monday morning. I’m not sure if this is a mental cure (all in my mind), but it sure seems to work for me.🤷🏼‍♂️

I told my kids that with all these shots I sometimes feel half human and half clone.😉😂

Re: COVID Vaccine Side Effects

Peggy and I both received the Moderna shots in February and March. One day of general fatigue following shot days, but no other side-effects. I received my Moderna booster this morning. Raked and bagged leaves for a few hours afterwards, just in case I won't feel like to tomorrow.
