Got the GASP!!!!!! Johnson and Johnson about 2 hours ago. Aside from a little ache at injection site after the shot we're fine.

I  did my double vax (Moderna) late March/late April, having scheduled the first dose for my first day of eligibility. First was pretty mild - felt sleepy/slouchy 6-30 hours out but not much else. Second one bit a little more....had fever/chills/sweats alternating and felt pretty out of it for a day or two. No picnic, but yet not intolerable either, a small price to pay for the statistical "advantage" of being vaccinated.

 

I spoke with an epidemiologist about the subject some months ago, where he gave the analogy of the bouncer in a bar. Said bouncer is working a bar where a certain troublemaker is causing problems around the place: first to the bartender, then on the back patio, then in the bathroom line, but he's not noticed so much cuz he's a stranger to the place, and no one places him. But the bouncer finally catches up with him and tells him his time is up - not too much of an event but everyone knows who he is now.

 

Four weeks later, said offender (now recognized COVID protein that the mRNA produces) shows up again, and now the staff knows who he is. Along comes the bouncer and kicks his arse out of the bar, and makes a little scene. Makes a few uncomfortable. But those who know the place knew who he was and wasted no time jumping him to eject him. This is the second shot, when your immune system now recognizes the offender (and hence the stronger and more direct reaction).

 

That's what's supposed to happen, to one extent or another, in someone with a normally operating immune system. Elderly whose immune systems are shot don' get much reaction. They really need the stuff.....

 

I would suggest hydrating well going into the procedure/timewait (36ish hours thereafter) as the second especially seemed to be taxing here (sweats/fever/chills, very evident the water loss). I had no issue keeping food/water/etc down, in fact woke up middle of night two drinking water just a bit hot around the head and elsewhere 🙂 Would do it all over again to put the numbers against infection on my side. Big relief getting that after a 13 month stint of working in and with the public and in tight quarters in a job where I have no other choice. So to me, its really was a relief, even among the night sweats.

My doctor told me that in her circle of professionals, they suspect people who had COVID but were asymptomatic have more/stronger reactions to the vaccines.

The day after my second Moderna jab was a little rough... YMMV

 

 

Same for my wife and me, both Moderna. She had body aches and joints on fire after about 36 hours. I just generally felt crappy and achy. We both felt markedly better by the following morning, after a solid night's rest (48 hours).
