Reaction to first dose: None or very mild. I had some chill and diarrhea about 18 hours after the shot - but I also had some Thai food that may have done that. Seriously - it might have been the Thai food.
Reaction to second dose: None (48 hours out so far.)

I ended up dropping out of the study after getting my shot. They’re moving to a blind crossover trial. Which means if you got the shot you’ll get the placebo, but if you got the placebo you'll get the shot. But that wouldn't be available until late April early May. That’s too long to wait when 1. I’m eligible for a shot right now 2. Hunting for a shot is a lot of work and if I don’t have to do that I could use that time better. 3. Everyday I send my kids out of this house I'm increase the risk.
They haven't called yet and already I'm tired of seeking out appointments.

I guess a bit of arm pain with the first one, but honestly less than other vaccinations I've received. We'll see about the second one. I have two colleagues who've received it and one was fine, just a bit tired and the other really struggled.
I'm a pretty big baby, so I hope it's close to the former.

Pfizer Dose 1. Quick and Easy. Saw FEMA, CalFire, Forestry Service and more making it happen. Wife got hers the day before at the same location. Arm a little sore for two days, no side effects now on Day 4.

I received my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine last week. (Disclaimer, I work for Pfizer). I had the normal shoulder soreness with a slight headache ~48 hours after the second dose. But I also had some wine the night before. The headache was nothing that taking a couple ibuprofen didn't cure.

Not all employees are eligible to receive it. I work in a lab so I was able to receive it as I am onsite a couple days a week. Employees who only work in offices and have not been on site have not been offered the vaccine yet.
17. "Moderna first dose " In response to Reply # 0
I usually don't experience much from vaccinations except for the occasional arm soreness for a day. After I received my first dose of Moderna in January, my arm was sore for a few days and I experienced fatigue. I was sluggish for quite a few days then I was back to normal.

that in non emergency times, vaccine research and production was always hampered by funding and other logistical delays (labs being backed up for analysis, people taking their time to read & peer review docs, evaluation logistics logjammed)...it took a long time because of those obstacles
in an emergency, those hurdles don't exist.
