I got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on Saturday morning. About 6 hours later, I spiked a fever of 101 with chills, headache, and body aches. Lasted about 3 hours. Headache and kind of weird-head-dizzy-feeling lingered for another 24 hours. I took ibuprofen which helped. Still had a bit of a headache yesterday morning but was totally back to normal by the afternoon - except my arm still hurts! I guess I'm real happy it was just a single dose.

I did have Covid back in September and I was told that they're thinking the reactions are worse in those who have gotten Covid. At least anecdotally, that was totally true in my family. Me, my sister and her husband all had Covid and had adverse reactions to the vaccine. Neither my other sister, my daughter, nor my Mom had Covid and none of them had any vaccine reaction at all. So weird!

I hope this will be my experience. Second Pfizer shot scheduled tomorrow. I had a bit of a reaction to the first dose - sore arm and low grade fever for about a day.

Had my second Pfizer shot on Friday as well. I had COVID in January. Other than an extremely sore, entirely dead arm by the time Friday night rolled around, woke up Saturday feeling great. No side effects.

My husband and I both had COVID - my case was mild, his more severe. For the vaccines we have both responded to both doses pretty much proportionately to the severity of our original case. I just had the second one - no fever, but definitely a day of the "dizzy head" syndrome.

Second Pfizer dose yesterday afternoon. My arm is very sore, I have a headache, very tired and am chilled. Also, my head feels a little 'swimmy'. Not sure what is vaccine related, cooler temperatures outside, or allergies. Luckily I'm working from home today - so that's a good thing.

hubby and co-worker had 2nd vaccine the same day. Hubby couldn't tell if he had any effects other than a sore arm (he is disabled and always achy). Co-worker had a headache and body aches, chills, etc. She ended up leaving work early the day after the shot. Went home and took a hot bath and went to bed. Got up to eat dinner and then went back to bed. The next day she felt fine.

Skittles, my husband and I had second dose Wednesday. His side effects were limited to a sore arm. I had headache, achy joints, and low grade fever yesterday, but feel back to normal except sore arm today.

Thanks for that. My joints don't feel achy, but since I have rheumatoid arthritis it might be tough to tell.

I've taken some Tylenol and it seems to be helping me a bit. I may sign off shortly and go lay down for a bit. Everything that had to be done today has been done, so I feel pretty good about that. And my husband is pushing me to rest.

An afternoon nap sounds like a good idea.

Had my second Pfizer shot on Friday and side effects started about 24 hours later. Every joint in my body ached and I was so tired. The aches were manageable with ibuprofen and I just slept a lot. It lasted for about 10 hours. Felt good as new on Sunday!

Covid back to hitting the office among unvaccinated employees.

Side note: I still don't my taste/smell back after 7 months, getting exhausted.

I can't even imagine what that is like! I lost mine for 6 days and it felt like an eternity.
