Just got my booster 4 minutes ago, same as my first two shots (Pfizer).

Fist shot I was tired/worn down for a day or less.  Second jab I was I was ery tired for 3-4 days.

Anyone want to share their experiences?

  • I got Moderna, so your experience may vary, but in my case the booster just gave me a sore arm for a couple of days. Not even the half day of slight fever and fatigue the second shot had given me.

    I had Pfizer for all three but I also have the immune system of a drunk toddler so I always seem to feel it pretty bad. I was out of commission for about a day and felt like shit the next day or so after the second shot and the booster was about the same.

  • Pfizer for all three as well: first dose= no reaction, second I was tired for a day as if I hadn't slept well.  Booster I woke up the next day with a mild headache, but a single does of Tylenol was enough to get rid of the headache and no other side effects than that.

    Same, and I have received Pfizer for all three jabs.
    For a great cause though!

    1st - spacey and out of it with a sore arm
    2nd - muscle aches, tired, felt like i had the flu with a mild fever, and arm was REALLY sore
    booster - really tired that night and mild headache. next day arm was a little sore but felt fine as the day went on
  • I had really mild reactions to all three of my shots.

    1st - tired, sore arm, headache - when to bed early, woke up feeling fine except for a mildly sore arm
    2nd - had insanely vivid, violence nightmares for two days.  I wasn't sure if it was coincidental or a known side-effect, but apparently it is.
    3rd - very mild sore arm

    It’s pretty much exactly like this:

    Seriously though, I just got over Omicron and very happy to have been boosted. Booster for me wasn’t so bad in perspective, just sore arm.

    This matched my experience. All my doses have been Moderna. No symptoms with the first shot. Felt fatigue and run down after the second. Then with my booster, virtually no symptoms outside of a sore arm for a day.

    So far feeling a lot like my first shot, or milder than the second.

    I can sit here feeling mostly fine, very minor brain pain, minor joint aches aside from the area that was jabbed.

    But energy levels are REALLY low, don't want to get up for anything.

    Just forced myself to get in bed, it's midnight here.

    I'm expecting 24 to 36 more hours of this, but we'll see.

    I always end up getting it before nightshifts, boohoo.
