    haha
    every time I get an mRNA vaccine, I think I'd rather have rabies that have another mRNA vaccine.

      wait, you're just telling us this NOW?! your internet friends know how you are with the fur-babies, so this is pretty alarming....

      I've already checked to see who is staffing the ER closest to the vaccination site...which thankfully isn't at the rodeo for this round.

        Interesting...I'll report from the other side of dose #2.

        Yesterday I received 2nd Pfizer jab at 7:30 then worked a 10 hour day. Slept fine last night, bit of a sore arm again, but not nearly as bad as dose #1 for me. Then worked another full day today. Feeling totally fine. Perhaps running a little warm today --but my basal body temps are so low that it actually felt good to be warm at 98.1 this morning ;-P

        • Started today’s shift pretty beat up, still having chills, and body aches.
          At about the 36 hour post shot mark (or 24 hours post reaction), I suddenly felt mostly better. The chills and severe aches and malaise went mostly away rather suddenly. Now I just feel mildly chilly and achey.

          The most annoying thing is that I have painful L axillary swelling and lymphadenitis, after getting both shots in the L deltoid. Hurts to let the arm hang down.

          Not sure it would matter, but I’d recommend alternating arms between shots #1 and #2 just for the ************************ of it.

          Overall, several non-Covid infected people where I am, got beat up like me, and one other got the armpit nodes, but many had minimal symptoms.

            Depending on who I get for my shot I might take it in the gluteus.

              You realize that I just recently found out that I got the "real" shot. I kept thinking this nausea and sore arm was all in my mind.

                It's been a long time since high school, not sure I could manage that. (Our shot clinic is a drive through.) 😉

                • Anecdotally, all the staff here who had confirmed COVID and subsequently vaccinated have had miserable reactions (makes sense I guess, immune system revved up). I had barely any reaction, a little bit of a sore arm is all. Maybe my compulsive mask wearing paid off well enough.

                    Did you already have Covid? I’m debating how long to wait after my infection to get the vaccine.

                      I don’t think I did. Haven’t been sick in almost a year and the 1st shot was easy. Everybody I know who had Covid says shot #1 was like my #2. I never did get tested for antibodies though.

                        A co worker got the vaccine 3 weeks after having covid, 1.5 weeks after returning to work. His reaction was heavy for 24-36 hours post shot.

                          Surprised system let that happen. Glad he got through it.

                          @ our GRounds, the ID team did warn about the 2nd shot and is making general recommendations to have either a day off after or lighter schedule planned.

                            I think our policy is 14 day post covid, but 90 days if you received monoclonal antibodies

                            • Everyone that I know that got the vaccine will be dead within 125 years. I dunno. You be the judge.

                                I heard 120 years, different sources I guess, not sure who to believe anymore...
