The second Moderna shot kicked my ass.

Still beats having the Wuhan Flu since I’m a walking mass of co-morbidities.

Got the shot at 10:15AM yesterday, waited my 15 minutes, then hit the grocery store and was home by 11:15.

11:45, headache, aches, chills, and a 101.5 fever. Went to bed, got up again at 4PM, had some soup, and back in bed by 8PM with fever and chills and seriously annoying body aches and no interest in living any more.

Got up at 9AM, no real change, after a sweaty, chilled, and meh night. Still no interest in life.

Back in bed by 11, up at 3PM, still felt like crap but had the sweats that indicated the fever might be breaking. Right now, temp is 99.5, below 100 for the first time, and I’m feeling vaguely human.

No regerts.

  1. Dammit, you’re making me more nervous about #2. I don’t go in to get it for 2 weeks. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I woke up fever-free. Get yer shot and suck it up!

    They made a good suggestion, too. Use your phone and take a picture of your card, in case it gets lost.

    Since the damn thing isn’t wallet-sized, that’s good advice.

    1. Yay for fever abating!
      That is a good suggestion, thanks. I am traveling next month, and I was just trying to figure out what kind of plastic carrier I might find. I still will – but a picture is a good backup.

  3. I got my second shot yesterday – the Moderna vaccine. So far, just a sore arm like I had with the first shot. Maybe a touch of nausea or dizziness if I bend over to get stuff from the bottom shelf of the cabinets, but no other problems.
