How is it in your country? I am a Canadian, 63, healthy and will probably be eligible soon.
I am thinking of first getting tested to know if i had covid.
Do they just vaccine or test you first?

That sucks to hear and why a healthy person like me (46 years old) who hasn't had the flu in 22 years has no business or reason the get the vaccine RIGHT NOW.
there are potential side effects for anything. Tylenol is a drug with particularly nasty side effects that people don't think twice about. not to mention, we have zero evidence that the vaccine caused anything. it's possible, but no proof.

AND, there's every reason for those young and healthy to get vaccinated ASAP. because young and healthy people are more social, they're more mobile, and more of them are still working. so they have a higher likelihood of spreading the virus around if they get it. so get the damn vaccine when you can so we can move past this thing.

Yes, staying out of the sun will make you sick. Doctors tell you to stay in the shade so they can make more money. It's all a scam.

My wife and I got our 2nd Pfizer shot yesterday. Both of us feel fine this morning. Had a little soreness yesterday in our upper arms and I still feel some of that today, but that's it so far. No flu like symptoms. Both of us are 56 years old, fwiw.
Good to hear. Did you react at all to the first one?

I have many people (at least 12+) that are in various stages of all 3 vaccines. So far some minor sides here and there. Nobody really mentioning if they can 100% say if their vaccine is the culprit of anything other than a sore arm-no definitive way to tell, I guess.

Wife says vaccine sides can’t be any worse than the sides they talk about at the end of a pill commercial. -got that right.

I had some related or non related post vaccine chills, wife nothing.

Why? Required in Canada? I know people who have had Covid then test negative later on.
May as well get tested for other stuff too.:)

My husband got his first dose of the covid vaccine (Moderna) on his birthday last weekend. Like myself, no side effects other than a sore arm. The vaccine has not slowed him down :)

I received my first dose (Pfizer) December 23, 2020 and second one a few weeks later. I've had no issues, continue to work FT and play.

Got our shots at 730am both times, and we both felt tired that evening after the 1st shot. We also got text message reminders for our appointments at 430am so sleep was a bit interrupted. It's hard to say whether the way we felt had anything to do with the vaccines or were just caused by lack of sleep.

I’ve had no issues, continue to work FT and play. I’ve passed up the shot many times and feel no need to get the experiment at THIS time.

My brother who travels for work, received his first shot 3-30 and was Covid + on 4-10 after being COVID tested in those 12 days. Unlike most if not all of you, my brother is tested weekly for work(sometimes more) depending on when he travels from City to City/ job to job.

My point is, you’re not always right and not always wrong whether you decide to get the vaccine or not. To point a finger and scold someone who decides not to get the shot and treat/ speak to them as they are a child when you NO nothing about them is Ridiculous .

56 here; had COVID in November, with mild symptoms.

Got Moderna #1 five weeks ago, at about midday. Shoulder was quite sore, and I had moderate fatigue, aches and chills through the next day. Woke up the second morning after feeling 100%. Moderna #2 last week, with pretty much the same effects.

I'm otherwise fit and healthy, with no co-morbidities. I didn't think twice about getting the shot, nor did I worry about it.

My wife, age 53, gets Pfizer #1 tomorrow, after having had COVID in February.

Cool. My first one was 2 weeks ago. With my asthma and having a past history of pneumonia, i was really happy to get this. I had a flu like reaction for the first 18 hours, then a headache and fatigue on and off.
