My 31 yo son received J&J. He got sick about 6 hours after the shot, had to leave work, and slept most of the time. Symptoms lasted just under 24 hours.

I took the J&J. I got it on a Thursday and was a little bit out of it through the weekend, but more of being pretty tired, but that's the way I react to cold/flu in general.

I'm fully vaccinated, but i have autoimmune disease - so i'm not sure how 'immune' i am to the virus.
I ran into a situation this weekend where a bunch of my alum chapter sisters got together- but i couldn't go because one wasn't vaccinated. I doubt she will get the vaccination. But she has had covid, so now she says she has the antibodies. I feel like she thinks this makes it ok to not get masked - even tho she can still spread the virus.
Now i face a dilemma - do i never attend our get togethers or take the risk.
Feeling really excluded and like they just don't get how vunerable i am to the virus.

I am sorry. Have you shared this information with the group?

Husband, son, and I all had Pfizer. All had sore arms similar to tetanus shot soreness. I purposefully exercised my arm in the hopes that it would work the soreness out, and it did. Husband had a light headache with his first shot (due to his work, he got his in January). I only had arm soreness for a day with both doses. Son had sore arm with first shot, and felt that his underarm lymph nodes were swollen with the second shot.

UPDATE: My wife and I have both had our third Covid-19 shot/booster.

I had Pfizer 2 weeks ago and had very mild symptoms—sore shoulder, tiredness for about 48 hours.
My wife had the Moderna yesterday—1/2 dose as prescribed. She has been hit pretty hard—headache, exhaustion (slept 11 hours last night), had a slight fever (over 100) and has slept off and on today

Of course we both think whatever side effects are absolutely worth some discomfort. I just wanted to weigh in.

UPDATE: I received my Moderna booster today here in Cali. No symptoms after 6 hours though I am a little tired because I cooked a complete Thanksgiving dinner afterwards.

I lucked out, I found a place that was administering the booster vaccine without an appointment. I happen to be walking in the right place at the right time. I did have an appointment, the earliest I could book was 12/3. I cancelled this appointment.

My husband had his Moderna booster in September -- he was pretty tired for the next 24 hours, but he also had the "enhanced" flu shot at the same time, so it's hard to say if one or both wiped him out. I had the Pfizer booster Oct. 8, along with the regular flu shot and the first Shingles vaccine. Sore arm and lymph nodes, but that was it -- two of the three injections had some redness and tenderness, but I have no idea which ones were which! Our son is getting his 3rd Pfizer vaccine as we speak.

Update: I developed a fever 12 hours after injection. A lot better today

Ugh I have to get Moderna Round 3 soon...I had a miserable 24 hours after the second shot. I didnít plan properly and wound up working 8 hours while feeing like I had the worst flu. Now Iím going to schedule it for when Iím off. Too bad I donít work for the state anymore because they paid for you to be off when you got the vaccine.
