I hope she feels better soon OP.

"There have been some anecdotal reports of Covid survivors experiencing more severe side effects — feeling achy, sick or even feverish — after the first dose of vaccinations, Wohl says. “That makes complete sense, and shows you that the immune system is really responding to [the virus] in a much more vigorous way,” he says."

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/02/05/should-you-get-vaccinated-if-you-recovered-from-covid-expert-advice.html

I read a more technical version of this but have no clue where to find it again...basically it said the same thing and gave a more detailed explanation as to why.

I had my first dose of Pfizer on Saturday. Quite sore arm Saturday night and through the night, fatigue, achy, felt like I was coming down with something on Sunday. Had a 2 hour nap and rested the rest of the day. Still feeling a bit tired today.

I had signed up with an app at the clinic for followup from the CDC.

They contact me every day asking about symptoms. A great way for them to be monitoring and adding to their data.

More excellent news of how effective this vaccine is.

Israeli study finds 94% drop in symptomatic COVID-19 cases with Pfizer vaccine

Each person responds differently to vaccines. It does seem like there may be more side effects from the second dose and that means your body is responding as it should.

My first dose of the Shingles vaccine was really rough. The second dose was easier but other people have had the opposite reaction and some people barely have any reaction.

This is all normal though. There were a record 2 million doses administered on Friday in the US for a total of 50 million doses administered so far. The rollout is very well organized in Colorado.

Yes I read that too, xyzcf.  It does show the vaccine is working to build up your immune system.

My brother and his wife live in Denver, got the second shot with no ill effects at all (they are both over 75) but I also read sometimes older people don't feel the bad effects as much as younger people do.
I wish I could find that article because I don't remember why that is.  I would think it has to do with their immune system but I don't remember.

Has anyone else read that?

Less reaction is less common in people over 65?

Indeed, older patients are thought to have less of a reaction due to typical weakening of the immune system as people age, Parikh said: "The idea is that their immune system is not as robust as a young person's."

This was not the exact article I read but this was the reason.

I've been following these COVID threads. 

As an educator I figure I'm exposed a good share of the time. 

I contracted COVID in late December and was home isolated for two weeks.  It was pretty nasty but I didn't have to be hospitalized so luckier than many other folks. 

The school district has received vaccines a bit at a time over the last two weeks.  I will not be eligible for the vaccine until all other district members who want it have the chance to receive it as doses become available.  The first 50 doses were Moderna. 

FW - I'm nervous to get the vaccine as well, especially if I'm going to react poorly to it, already having had COVID. 

XYZ - I also did not do well with either shot of the shingles vaccine.   :(

My appointment on Saturday was at 2:10 PM.  I was uneasy all morning. I have read a great deal about the vaccine, I worked in Infectious diseases and Immunization for years and this is the first time that I felt any uneasiness about getting a vaccine.

There is a great deal in the media and it's hard to distinguish what is fact and what is not. New information is occurring hourly and sometimes contradicting previous information (such as wearing masks).

But I know that the safety of this vaccine has been studied and not just since COVID. It has been in development for years. People a great deal brighter and educated then I have consistency provided data that the vaccine is safe.

I was really emotional when I received my first dose. The stress of COVID and the restrictions it places on our lives have taken a toil on everyone. This is the game changer, although there will still need to be precautions taken and monitoring needs to continue.

I think it is important to be able to express any concerns and I value the information that is shared on this thread. 

Day 2 after the vaccine, I was still tired today and had another 2 hour nap on the couch.

But I also feel a sense of hope that I have not felt in a year.

We are incredibly fortunate to have a vaccine.

I hope that everyone who has any questions will be able to get factual information to answer any concerns they might have.

It's a nasty reaction but a strong response most likely means that the vaccine did what it is supposed to do stimulating our immune system so that we have protection from these viruses...I know it sucks though  >:(

OK - it is now 72 hours past her first dose and it appears things are getting a little better - Whew!


A mild achy headache and very very tired but better than yesterday and the day before and the biggest of
surprises she can taste a little bit.
That is hopeful!
8 months of no taste was wearing thin.

So their is definitely hope!!
