Has any one here had a Covid 19 vaccine yet?
In the spirit of threads such as .... have you had Covid.... and.... have you been tested for Covid....
I had the moderna vaccine today and I feel 100 % well.

You may have seen on the other thread I joined the J&J trial this week.
I have a 50% chance of having the vaccine but I had 3 of the side effects of the vaccine.
Bit of a sore arm, A small headache and fatigue that night of the injection, Nothing to worry about in other words.
I go back in 57 days to have another as this is a 2 shot trial.

How will they know if it’s effective? Do the antibody test on you? Or simply try to infect you with Covid??

I got the Pfizer vaccine and just had a sore arm after the first jab.
After the second one I had muscles aches, stiffness, headache and that general feeling like you're coming down with something. Paracetamol certainly helped a lot. I was fine about 36 hours later.
A number of my colleagues had familiar symptoms, some also had fever and chills.
I hope no one is put off by hearing about some of the side effects. They are completely normal.
I would much rather feel like crap for 36-48 hours than take the risk of contracting Covid.
The advice I would give people getting the second dose would be to take it easy for the day, book it off work if you can and have paracetamol handy.
