Recieved my first Moderna shot on tuesday. My arm was a bit sore for two days, and I ran a slight fever for a few hours yesterday evening, but other than that I haven't had any issues.

I scraped in before the vaccine was open to the public due to multiple co-morbidities and convergent housing. The latter means several people not of one family living in specialized housing.

Fully vaccinated as of April 26th and other than getting stuck to fridge every time I reach in for a beer, no side effects.

I had the chills after getting my second shot of Pfizer. A medical professional assured me that a noticeable side-effect indicates that the microchip is working.

LOL!

In my case, I came down with a of a migraine upon shot number one. As I'm prone to migraines, I didn't fret it and just let the doctor know. Co-incidents are a thing. Shot number two left me with a sore arm and nothing else.

Need help.

I'm wondering if anyone else is having troubles with their vaccinations. Is this just an issue with Pfizer?

I can connect via bluetooth, but am having difficulties with the WiFi.

You have to tap the injection site a few times. They're buggy.

In 20 minutes it's 14 days since I got my second shot (Pfizer). Those goddamn super powers better hurry up. I'm beginning to think it's all a hoax!

Second shot of Biontech yesterday.

As a precautionary measure to prevent side effects I slurped 2 liters of Oktoberfestbeer (already available although the fest is not taking place) after the jab.

That helped. Only a minor headache today, and I´m not sure it´s the fault oft the vaccine .
