Your experience is consistent with other reports for Moderna. Several of my colleagues described the exact same response as does Winston.

I’ve heard similar stories about the Pfizer vaccine. I’ll be getting my shot(s) in July at the earliest. Vaccine rollout is very slow here due to supply. And it probably will be the AstraZeneca one. It’s a vector vaccine so side effects might be a little different. And since I already had covid probably, I might not notice anything. Can’t wait to get it though!


Medication: Arcoxia 60mg as needed
No official dx yet (no visible fusion of SI joints on x-rays)

My second dose has been pushed back a week, and that interferes with the timing of my carefully scheduled Humira injections.

If I take Humira on schedule now it would be two days before the vaccine, which I’m not comfortable with.

So I’ll probably put off my Humira for 5-7 days. I’m not looking forward to that but I’ve been stable for years and tbh I’ve tweaked scheduling before to work around vacations and colds and the like. Just not used to it after a year of staying home.

I had my second Moderna shot on Sunday afternoon. Mild pain at the injection site that night (not as bad as the first one). I also felt a bit “off”.

Monday I woke up with a low grade fever and some very minor chills. A fairly bad headache. Just a little achy. Very significant exhaustion. Not like with the flu where you just want to sleep. It felt more like I’d walked a long way through deep snow. My legs and arms felt heavy and I was just worn out.

My temperature ran between 99.5 and 100.8 which was about 1.5-2 degrees above normal for me.

I really thought I’d wake up Tuesday feeling better but I still had the temperature, headache, chills and fatigue. My temp started to drop right before lunch. I took a nap in the early afternoon and woke up feeling better but still tired.

Woke up Wednesday morning back to normal. I did delay my Humira (my own choice, there is no official recommendation to do this) so I’m starting to feel the effects of that.

I missed two days of work but I was able to watch TV, shower, get myself something to eat and stuff like that. Emptying the dishwasher was tiring though.

This shot did not trigger joint pain for me like the first dose did.

Overall not bad at all.

I had my 2nd dose of moderna three weeks ago.

It kicked my butt! But felt back to normal after 3days.

Shivering/shaking
Night sweats
Body ache (AS type of flare)
Uveitis flare
Headache

Mantra... trust that my body knew how to not stay in a flare & the immune system is doing its job to protect me from C19.

My working theory...

people over 70 expect minor or no reaction.

People in 40s & 50s are feeling a pretty robust reaction, but only for 2-3 days.

Having talked to quite a few people now who have had the shot, I agree with this assessment

This has been my observation as well. Most elderly people in my orbit have had little to no reaction to the shots.

For those who might be fearful of the vaccine side effects, I've read that the Johnson & Johnson shot is much less reactogenic than the Pfizer and Moderna shots.

I am getting either Moderna of Pfizer because the variants are coming and only the mRNA technology is nimble enough to crank out booster shots to protect us fast enough. The old chicken egg virus approach used for decades of influenza vaccine would never catch up with this evil COVID-19 virus.
