Additional information regarding the incidence of rare clotting disorders related to the vaccine. Be sure you ask your doctor to perform all appropriate testing before the vaccination. It's simply a wise recommendation.

Hello 5,

No, the vaccines aren't based on height and weight. Here are a couple of websites that will help answer several questions.

Are these doses individualized? How can they be when we are so varied in height and weight? That has always bothered me to think about vaccinations.

There are complaints of arm discomfort, nausea and flu like symptoms following these vaccines. It's an immune system response to the vaccine, but still, it's got to be uncomfortable. There are a lot of reports of lymph node enlargement, especially on the side of the injection. Armpits and neck nodes seem to be most affected. There was a recent report advising women to wait two or three months (post vaccine) to get their mammograms, because breast lymph nodes inflame as well. If it's something that can't be put off temporarily, be absolutely certain to tell the doctor and mammo tech to notate that on your chart. I hope you get to feeling better soon, Iris.

Iris,maybe you should see your family doctor...they might know if it's an allergic reaction and shouldn't take the second dose.

Or maybe it will clear up in a few more days? I hope so.

Mike, how are you dong now? it's the 10th, you should be out and about and enjoying re-intergration. Did you have any other side effects after your second dose?

I'm still getting weird brain fog that feels like buzzing in my head. Really agitating and I just feel yuk. I don't feel bad really, I just don't feel well.

I also heard women are having more side effects than men, something to do with estrogen. One thing I have also noticed is a spike in hot flashes, although they say chills are a side effect.

Stomach ache too like... bleh, I don't want to eat. But once I do it's ok.

oi, hope this passes soon, it's scaring me for the second dose.

bb, Iris

I'm fine. No side effects from the second dose except a little sore at the injection site. I should be considered fully protected on April 9 (2 weeks after 2nd dose). I'll still follow CDC guidelines (mask, distancing, etc) to keep from getting infected but, if I do, I feel much better knowing I'm protected against serious complications or death.

I'm sorry to hear about your friends mother. That's an unusual case. Most elderly people don't have as much of a reaction because of their weaker immune system. I'm only 60 but my HIV (low CD4 cell count) is likely why I had very little reaction. smile

Hey Mike,

You should've had the second dose by now (3/26). Did you have any side effects from it? My friend's Mother got the first dose of the Moderna vaccine and ended up in the hospital. She got ill the second day, and we had to call 911 and get her to the hospital. She couldn't walk, high fever, and total loss of balance, couldn't hold anything down, not even water. She ended up in the ICU and then the cardiac floor. They indicated that it was likely a vaccine reaction, because they couldn't attribute it to anything else. She came home after a week and was home for two days and is back in the hospital. She's 80 years old, so this is concerning. She's insistent on getting the second dose, but the doctors are hesitant to administer it. You get partial protection from the first shot, so she might have to settle for that.

I hope you're doing well!

Second COVID Shot Packs the Big Punch

What you may experience, appears to be short term. Nonetheless, there might be a rough day or two.

Second Vaccine Dose

I'm glad you got in, Mike. A warm, moist compress will help that discomfort. You should've been qualified for immediate vaccination. You've got co-morbidities that should have been recognized to begin with. Whatever the case, I'm happy you got that first dose. Big thumbs up, Bro!

I received dose #1 of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday after waiting for all the scheduled people and any unscheduled eligible for phase 1B in my state (65yr+, Educators, food manufacturing, etc.) to be completed. There was a long line of non-eligible (phase 1C - underlying health conditions) people but only a few of us got the vaccine (what was left in opened vials). I got there early so I was 8th in line. Only a couple more got in after me. Today my arm is a little sore at the injection site and after a busy morning I'm a little fatigued but otherwise feel fine (and grateful!). Dose #2 is scheduled for March 26. smile

Hello brothers and sisters. As a survivor of hep-c Triple Therapy way back in 2013 you will have to forgive me for being a tad hesitant on rushing in for my Covid-19 vaccine. Mind you, my doctor may be a little pissed if I say "I'd like to wait please" lol.

I flash back to those days when I hear of a possible cure that hasn't really been around long and then of course to this site, and you good people and Tig, CinnamonGirl and the gentleman with medical training from Australia who gave so unselfishly, freely and often. Sacrificing their time for our well-being. Cheers to them and you.
