Vaccine Side Effects - What side effects did you get from your vaccine?

    Yeah that part I got. It was piece at the end of your post regarding Jesus and Pfizer that threw me. Only noticing now it’s some kind of signature.

    We should defend our way of life to an extent that any attempt on it is crushed, so that any adversary will never make such an attempt in the future.

    Oh that's a joke about how much praise people give to Pfizer.

    I will change it now I think.

    I had Covid In March 2020. Was very sick and took a long time to feel normal again.

    after my first Pfizer jab I got v high temps and felt v bad. Was shaky n weak for a day or 2 after . After my second Pfizer jab I didn’t get high temps but I was so tired. Was scheduled off work the day after and couldn’t get out of bed hardly. Got the weird muscle pains n pains out my back by shoulder blades as I had with Covid. Was ok the day after but the tiredness is hard going. No joke after being awake for 2hrs my eyes are scratchy and I’d sleep on nails. After 3days the headaches started and lasted over a week. I’m hoping I’m starting to feel a bit more normal again now.

    covid Is a truly rotten thing.

    Vaccine Pfizer

    1st vaccine headache lasted 6 hours. Paracetamol really helped

    2nd vaccine sore arm for 48hrs

  • I woke up the day after the J&J feeling more or less OK, by lunchtime I was absolutely fucked. Had to take the afternoon off work and spent most of the next 24 hours in bed but barely sleeping. Had next day off work so could lie in and by that night I was more or less OK though I had a bit of brain fog for another couple of days but nothing serious.

    Seems a complete crapshoot though, I've spoken to people who've had all the vaccines, some were fine for both shots, some were fine after the first, some were fine after the second. Very little pattern to it.

    Dose 1 Pfizer: nothing on the day, next day I was quite tired and had a nap, but I have three kids, including a baby who doesn’t sleep well so hard to link it to the vaccine tbh. Arm a little sore at injection site only- but nowhere near the soreness of the whooping cough or tetanus jabs. That’s it really. Hope number 2 is ok!

  • Registered Users Posts: 29,594 ✭✭✭✭ Tauriel

    Vaccine: Pfizer

    Dose 1: sore arm and high temperature. A bit of dizziness on the day of the injection. Also got a mouth ulcer but I'm not sure if this is caused by the vaccine as I don't think it is a documented side effect.

    Sorry about the extra post, I can't seem to find delete.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,456 ✭✭✭ Talisman

    Vaccine : Pfizer

    1st Dose - First day tightness of chest and fatigue. Second day was fine. Third day headache, joint pains in elbows, hips and knees. Tremors in fingers that lasted about a week.

    2nd Dose - Fatigue on the day. Headache that lasted three days.

    The tremors freaked me out but thankfully they weren't permanent. My sister has an auto immune condition and she experiences the same tremors. In her case it's an inflammation response when her immune system is under pressure.

    Dose 1, sore arm very similar to sore arm after flu jab.

    You need to go to a GP. This may be a severe vaccine adverse event. Millions of people are taking the vaccine so a few people will have bad reactions. It’s important that events like this are recorded.

    it could be worse, a few people have been hospitalised after taking the Astra Zeneca vaccine. Some of the flu vaccines in the past resulted in severe events for a small amount of people also. If the effects are lasting for weeks that needs to be investigated

    I’m three weeks post 2nd vaccine and only slowly getting my energy back. Was floored for about two weeks, snoozing in the afternoons and struggled to get out for a walk.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,496 ✭✭✭ HalloweenJack


    First dose: sore arm for a few days.

    Second dose (yesterday): Very sore arm, worse than the first time round. General fatigue. Slept like a log last night and just been lying in bed all morning. I can't go back to sleep but can't do much else. Tried reading but its too much work. Walked the dogs for twenty minutes as I do every morning and I was shattered afterwards.

  • Reading here, are more people sick from vaccine or Covid ? (Am assuming post people here are « pro-vaccine ».)

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,625 ✭✭✭ Ohmeha

    Have only had one jab so far, moderna.

    Nothing the day of, or after apart from a slightly sore arm at injection site. Day 3 lymph nodes in my armpit (injection side) swelled up like a golf ball and had pain running from that down to my hand on the inside of my arm. Sore enough too. Cleared up after about 9 days and grand since.

    Second dose coming up and kinda dreading that it would bring a worse version of the first jab.

    Still take it over covid tho knowing one or two people who got proper wiped out for months with it.
