Getting my Pfizer booster today

In about 90 minutes.

Told people at work yesterday and several told me not to do it as it is "poison."

Poison? I already got the shots back in March & April earlier this year and no side effects aside from a sore arm after the first.

"No, no, no...you don't understand. The booster is where they really get you. Well it was nice knowing you."

So what happens Monday when I return to work perfectly fine like the last two times?

Nothing will happen, and eventually they'll move on to the next conspiracy du jour.

They don't want or need to prove anything is true, they just want or need to believe in it. . . for a little while.

I got my Pfizer booster last Thursday. All went well...just a sore arm and maybe a little more tired. I feel fine and you'll be fine, OP. Good luck...

I got my booster a couple of weeks ago and had a strong reaction - a day of high fever and GI upsets.

A doctor I know said "Great, you want a strong reaction!", and that it meant the immune system was activating itself. Which is great considering my "essential" job carries a high risk of exposure, but be warned, OP. Some people are sick a day or two after getting the booster.

by Anonymousreply 6November 13, 2021 5:00 PM

I got my booster last week and was sore for a day. I attribute it to the microchip that was injected as part of the booster so that the government can spy on me and know where I am at all times. Other than that, no problems.

R6, how did you do with the first two shots?

I was really sick for about 24 hours after my second Moderna. My booster is this coming Tuesday, and I’m really hoping it’s not a redux experience of fever, chills, nausea, and aches.

Had 3 Moderna shots that include the booster a couple of weeks ago. Only second Moderna shot made me feel iky the second day afterwards. The third shot had less of a sore arm compared to the first two.

Funny how most people are reporting that the 2nd jab and the booster were most painful or uncomfortable for them.

For me, it was the 1st. I checked myself into A&E, because I was in so much pain and couldn’t breathe properly—genuinely thought I was dying (apparently it was a panic attack+an underlying longterm condition waking up from dormancy? So the Dr. said...). After much angst and handwringing and foot-dragging, I did have the second too, and was barely affected by it. Very odd.

As I’m under 30 and not technically in an at-risk group, I haven’t been encouraged to have the booster yet. Not sure if I’ll bite yet.

I had my third a week ago (Moderna) and as before, no reaction except a slightly sore arm. It’s just weird how some people get strong reactions and some none at all. It’s not like I’m in perfect health. I wish I knew why.

My first two shots of Moderna in the spring kicked my ass. The booster last week was nothing, not even a sore arm.

I wonder how many have not gotten the vaccine, not because they are anti-vaxxers, but they are afraid of the after effects that are always brought up when they are in the company of the vaccinated. Also, how many are afraid of needles and see people getting injections every time the news stations talk about Covid vaccines?

by Anonymousreply 21November 14, 2021 2:31 AM

I've had the 2 Moderna vaccines and a Pfizer booster - doctors said ok to mix them. Never had any side affects except I had flu like symptoms after the first moderna for a day. I am a two time liver transplant recipient 14 years ago, so very lucky and have had all kinds of vaccines since then ( shingles, tetanus, etc) no after effects. JFC stop it you are all wimps if you can't get a fucking shot in your arm! Morons!

I had my booster last Friday and felt tired, stiff, headache, slightly light headed the next day, and my arm stayed sore, hot and itchy for a week. I just knew it was my immune system revving up.

If you don't have strong reaction to the vaccine, then the vaccine does nothing to your antibodies because you are either too fat or too old.

by Anonymousreply 26November 14, 2021 2:23 PM

R21 you are right. There are people who fear needles because they associate it with pain. For some, that stems from childhood. Some indeed fear the side-effects. Certain inflaming, and sometimes contradicting messages in the media, including from some pro-vaccine advocates, can generate discomfort. I know a few who were reluctant to take the vaccine because if they get side-effect sickness, they view being absent from work is an outcome that must be avoided. When they chat with co-workers, friends, and even misinformed family members, mixed and false messaging can flourish.

by Anonymousreply 27November 14, 2021 2:24 PM

I had the Pfizer booster over a month ago with no reaction whatsoever. I've had extended exposure to a couple of family members with covid and I've never gotten sick. Maybe I'm one of those lucky ones that never will, who knows. I'm not taking any chances though.

by Anonymousreply 28November 14, 2021 2:45 PM

I got the J&J this past spring, and it put me in bed for a couple of days. At first, I thought it was just a migraine, but the chills and fever etc prompted my boss to suggest it was the vaccine reaction. Which was a nice reminder, since our company provided special paid time off for those getting the shot who had a bad reaction to it.

Friday I went to Costco and got the flu shot in my right arm and the Moderna booster in my left. I thought I was being pretty smart to take care of both at once, but that night I remembered: I sleep on my side. And two sore arms made for a restless night.

I've been fine since, though.

Got my Pfizer booster a week ago. I deliberately got mine on a Friday afternoon so I would have the weekend to be sick if I had a reaction. I felt a little run down for a day, arm was sore for two days.

That's about the same reaction I had to the first Pfizer dose. I had virtually no reaction to the second Pfizer dose.

My first two shots were Pfizer, and I decided to mix it up and get a Moderna booster.

I had bad body aches the day after the shot, which went away in 24 hours. But I've been fatigued ever since. That was two weeks ago. It's gotten like 5% better every day, but I still feel like I could close my eyes and go to sleep instantly at any point.

I am getting my Pfizer booster this afternoon. I had 2x Astra Z the first time around and no major reactions from either jab other than feeling tired for about 24 hours afterward. Fingers crossed for similar minor reaction today.

I got a Moderna booster last week after getting two Pfizer shots last March. Here’s the weird thing. I had a headache for seven months after the first two shots. It went away after the Moderna booster. It is an amazing relief to feel better after so long AND to be safe for the holidays. I’ve looked all over online and can’t find anyone else who had this experience.

I did Pfizer/Pfizer initially, but decided to go with the Moderna booster because I've read Moderna seems to remain effective longer. But now I'm thinking I should have just gotten the Pfizer Booster, since I feel I've doubled my prospects for adverse consequences yet to be discovered. At any rate, the two Pfizer shots left me feeling fluish and miserable for 2 days, the Moderna Booster only left me with a sore arm.

My crazy anti-vaxx, conspiracy freak uncle tried to gatecrash Thanksgiving. My dad stopped him at the front door with a plate my mom prepared for him, covered in tin foil (so he could spruce up his hat, later on). My parents had told him months ago that they would love to have him at the house for the holidays, but only if he was vaccinated. My parents both have health issues and one of my sisters still has a son who is too young to get vaxxed. He's gotten kicked out of various local businesses and I had to block him on social media because he won't stop pushing the conspiracy bullshit. It's all he talks about and he gets right up in your facewith it, too.
