It's an immune response not a side effect. That's why everyone's is so different.

Wife and I got the second Moderna around noon Friday. Other than a sore arm, no problems so far.

Second Moderna on Wednesday - sore arm, but not as sharp a pain as the first shot. Had a very mild temperature Wednesday afternoon/evening and kind of a whole body tiredness/ache the next day - But, other than that, it's been fine.

As many have stated, reactions are as varied as those that actually had the virus. Personally, no one I know had much of an issue with either dose (About 20 people & mostly Moderna). Mostly sore arm similar to flu shot and maybe a little tired. The youngest person (mid 30's), was the worst with headache bad enough for Tylenol after the 2nd shot for 8 hours. I am really surprised to hear the number of people feeling so poorly. I now feel lucky.

This is an old report (based on the first 14 million doses and 6,994 responses), and it's intended to show adverse events.

Common Side Effects and Reactions

During this time, nearly 14 million COVID-19 vaccine doses were administered and VAERS received and processed 6,994 reports of adverse events.

  • 6,354 events (90.8%) were classified as nonserious
  • 640 (9.2%) were classified as serious
The most frequently reported symptoms to VAERS were:
  • Headache (22.4%)
  • Fatigue (16.5%)
  • Dizziness (16.5%)
  • Chills (14.9%)
  • Nausea (14.8%)
The most common reactions logged in v-safe (data is for both vaccines, within the first seven days of any vaccine dose) were:

  • Injection site pain (70.9%)
  • Fatigue (33.5%)
  • Headache (29.5%)
  • Muscle ache (22.9%)
  • Chills (11.6%)
  • Fever (11.4%)
  • Injection site swelling (10.8%)
  • Joint pain (10.4%)
  • Nausea (8.9%)
There was a total of 113 deaths reported to VAERS 65 percent of which were among long-term care facility residents but available data did not suggest any causal relationship between COVID-19 vaccination and death. In other words, the deaths are thought to be due to health problems unrelated to the vaccine.

Crazy stuff. Wife and me were expecting the 24 hr issues but nothing. Not even a sore arm. We were joking that we must have received a placebo.

No more shots in cars, you have to go in.

Pfizer CEO saying boosters may be needed after 12 months, and presumably other vaccine makers have similar thoughts.

Assuming this, I'm curious to hear from people in the medical community if there is discussion about how this will be handled. Like going to your PPO, or CVS etc. as with the flu shots?

I took my 18-year-old for her second shot at Walmart on Briarcrest today and the pharmacy staff said they have plenty of open appointments. They're giving the Moderna shots. You can make an appointment online or by calling the pharmacy.

Exactly. Although if there are geographical hot spots associated with not having boosters there may be "hubs" again from time to time. It will be interesting to see the guidance about boosters too... will it be once Moderna (or another) always that vaccine booster ?

I think the no shots might be a bit misleading. Lots of folks got theirs outside the county. I know we haven't reported ours to anyone here so my gang is not counted.

Changing times for vaccine distributions.

COVID-19 vaccine allocations going forward

Quote:

The COVID-19 vaccine supply has increased to the point that DSHS will no longer allocate vaccine to providers each week. As of May 10, providers can order vaccine from DSHS on a daily basis. The tables on this page reflect allocations that were made between Dec. 14, 2020 May 3,2021. In addition to state allocations to enrolled vaccine providers, there were direct federal allocations for programs like the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID-19 Vaccination and the Health Center COVID-19 Vaccine Program for Federally Qualified Health Centers.

The states are still getting allocations, and here's the numbers for Texas for week of May 10:

Weekly COVID-19 vaccine allocations by state

394,290 --- Pfizer First Dose Vaccines Allocated
394,290 --- Pfizer Second Dose Vaccines Allocated
300,000 --- Moderna First Dose Vaccines Allocated
300,000 --- Moderna Second Dose Vaccines Allocated
46,300 --- Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) Single Dose Vaccines Allocated
740,590 --- Total First Dose and Single Dose Vaccines Allocated
1,434,880 --- Total Vaccines Allocated

Note that Texas has been getting about about 1.2 MM first doses and single doses per week over the past 4 weeks.

Nice. How concerned are we. really, about vax "reluctance?" Serious question. Seems like the reluctance is all in the under 50 crowd who are not, by and large, at risk.

Under 50 crowd outside of 1A group only became eligible a month or so ago. Need time to schedule and catch up. That said, this group still will likely be a lower take percentage, because we often feel we're young and invincible.

TBH, that is actually pretty accurate for a big chunk of that demographic (under 20)

While not personally at risk, they are the group that is going to be responsible for more variants. More infections means more chances to mutate.

HEALTH AND SCIENCE FDA permits use of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine in kids ages 12 to 15

Quote:

The FDA approved Pfizer and BioNTech's request to allow their Covid-19 vaccine to be given to kids ages 12 to 15 on an emergency use basis.

The agency granting use of the shot in younger age groups will accelerate the nation's efforts to drive down infections, experts say.

It will also allow middle school-aged students to get vaccinated before school starts this fall.
Quote:

Approval by the FDA for kids under age 12 could come in the second half of this year. In a slide presentation that accompanied the company's earnings release on May 4, Pfizer said it expects to apply for authorization for its vaccine for use in toddlers and young children in September and infants in November. It's already begun the submission process seeking full FDA approval for its use in people ages 16 and up, the company said Friday.

Her reply "Oh most of us aren't vaccinated. We just can't seem to get the shots!"

Eh? As in they couldn't find time to go to the hub in the 4 months that 1st shots were available to medical personnel?

I know some in the med field who didn't get the shot but it's more because they already got the Rona and didn't see a need for it.
