    Got a tip for those of us getting #2 Pfiser. IAW a nurse, hydrate hard 2 days before, and the day of and after. The more you hydrate, the less it is supposed to bother you.

    I truly think a lot of vaccine places had Chick-Fli-A come in and show them how to make it efficient!  Glad to hear everyone's starting to get their vaccines!

    Wow, North Carolina must be way behind.  South Florida opens up to over 40 next Monday and everyone on the 5th.

    So finally past most of the horse crap side effects. Chest pain and liver pain. That was what cause all the tests last week that came back negative. Doctor confirmed that I am not the only one that has complained of the pain. 
    So got the second shot late Wednesday, chest pain is back but at least subdued. Tylenol, water and sleep. Pfizer vaccine for those wondering.

    North Carolina, as most Democrat Governor run states, is a **** mess.  They scheduled me for May and then I get an email about 4 days ago to “come in tomorrow”.  Like I have nothing better to do than be subject to their scheduling whims.

    Anyway I took the first shot of Pfizer and was sore and achy overnight. Next morning I felt like hell but I got up, drank two cups of strong black coffee and headed to the range to do some training and by the time I got back 4 hours later I was fine.  Been felling “slow” for lack of a better word for a few days but hell I got **** to do so I just keep moving.  This too shall pass.

    Got some good advice from my daughter’s boyfriend to literally punch the site of the shot repeatedly through the first day.  He said that’s what they had them do in the military with their anthrax shot to help circulation distribute the shot faster and kill the site soreness, and I’ll be dammed, within a few hours my shoulder didn’t hurt anymore.

    Got pretty much the same advice from the gal that gave me my second shot....the wife had a great time punching me in the shoulder...

    Wish I had known about that. My arm is VERY sore this morning. Thankfully, that’s the only side effect so far.

    Good tip about the punching in the arm. According to MY pediatrician (Yes, not my daughters', MINE; she has been able to keep me alive for 45 years with only a few stitches and ointments!) that pain is usually because a not-so-diligent application, but considering vaccinators are stinging dozens of arms everyday, it becomes an assembly line rather than personal care. Glad you're all getting your doses guys.

    Still hoping to travel to Chile in May to get vaccinated, or at least the wife be able to do so IF they open back their borders (They have among the highest vaccination rates in the world but are facing a strong 2nd. wave among those still waiting for their shots) .
    Apparently they'll allow me to "skip the line" even though I'm not a national, but will see. They're already vaccinating those born in '65 so pretty soon they'll be in our age range. Down here our chances are getting inyected with watered down soy sauce (Corrupt useless pinkos bought the worst performing Chinese crap for the highest price so they can get a secret VIP lot before local "FDA" approval for themselves. Plot blew out and press is calling it "The Vaccinegate")  in 2034 and I refuse to travel to Texas for a "tourist vaccination" (They seem to be allowing this) because of fear of staying there for good!.

    If wife gets vaccinated in Chile, is growing a 2nd. wife a good or bad side effect?......just wondering...

    You can start the “punching” anytime.  Sounds counterintuitive but it works!  Start light and just go for a few seconds and stop and then go back to it through the next few hours whenever you feel like it.  It just gets circulation going to the area to wash out the shot.

    Did the military start doing anthrax shots again? They now think there’s a link between gulf war syndrome and some of the vaccines given and the anthrax vaccine is top of the list.

    For those getting the vaccine does that mean you will be doing 2 COVID vaccines and a regular flu vaccine every year?
  • VarmintmistVarmintmist Senior Member Posts: 7,496 Senior Member
    Got #2 Pfizer on the 31st at 8A. Got a headache about 8P that was still there in the AM, felt a little hung over and shoulders were sore. Was good to go by 2P.

    As to getting a regular covid poke.. Possible, probably a single shot if the strains are nasty not a double. I wouldnt have bothered except for some of the wonderful stuff I have inherited, I am in fair condition overall.
    FIL has it now. He has been squirting uncontrollably for 6 days in the hospital with an IV to keep him hydrated. That will be a hard pass for me if possible.

    Waiting for work (employer and customer) to require it.  I can get it now based on the city I am working in.  Supposedly there will be a mobile setup coming to the job site this month.  Still on the fence about it and we dont even know which vaccine it would be.

    Finally got my first A-Z shot, sore arm thats all
  • bullsi1911bullsi1911 Moderator Posts: 11,357 Senior Member
    I got my 1st Moderna shot last Wednesday.  I had the most hamfisted injector (I wont call her a nurse, cuz I have doubts) ever.  The injection site started bleeding immediately, and she missed most of the blood with the bandaid.  AND... I developed a nasty hematoma around the injection site, that still has not faded over a week later.

    Arm was sore for 2 days, and about 36 hours after injection I felt like crap and was just tired as hell.  I slept for 12.5 hours and ended up fine.
