The vaccine

I got a shot today. So far I notice nothing going on. Who here has got the vaccine?

I got the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine yesterday.

I’ve had some side effects such as headache, body aches, slight nausea and low grade fever 100.6 F. I took some Tylenol for the headache.

my gp doc said she chose me as one of the few people she can come give the shot at home cause she knows if she doesn’t do it that i will never get the vaccine.
I think i should get it pretty soon now… but i’m not impatient about it as i don’t fully trust it…

I had the pfizer one early this month, no noticeable side effects. Was spooky in the vaccine center though.

I hope your side effects subside quickly.

My side effects subsided within 24 hours except for a lingering headache (the headache is milder than it was yesterday).

Thanks. Took some ibuprofen. I’m giving it a couple days. I think it will be okay

When I spoke to the Dr. about my side effects, she mentioned that using anti-inflammatory meds to treat side effects may reduce the immune system response (that is causing the side effects) which may be counterproductive. She said as a preponderance of caution that she would recommend using Tylenol rather than anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen, if possible.

That makes sense. I haven’t took but two ibuprofen. I’ll try I hope.
