    Moderna here, with similar second dose side effects @Cory.

    How long did ot last?
    I called in again tonight, and am on vacation for a week.
    1.5 days for me.

    I feel like it's starting to ease off.

    Anyone have both shots as Pfizer and have side effects?

    It's 49 hours since my second shot and I'm a barely walking bruise. Aches in my neck, shoulders, back and thighs. And a lingering minor headache.
    I got lucky and I'm not replying to rub your nose in it, but rather to share my experience so you have something to compare it to.

    I've had two doses of Pfizer.  After the first dose, I had a bit of a sore arm the day of the injection and I would say a mlld headache right before bed.  The following day I woke up with a sore arm, but it went away once I got up on my feet and was moving around.  After my second dose, I felt really sleepy.  I went to bed pretty early the day I got it and I felt tired/sluggish the next day too and had a minor, dull headache.  I also had insanely wild and vivid dreams (like acid-trip dreams) that turned into really bad, really graphically violent nightmares.  That lasted for about 2 days.

    I didn't experience any bruising, no aches or pains (other than the dull headache) etc but your experience doesn't seem out of whack with what other people I know went through.  49 hours seems like a bit much though, I don't know anyone who had negative side effects that lasted for more than a day or two, so I hope yours go away soon.  On the plus side, you're vaccinated - congrats!

    Two things I'll add is I worked out before the shot, which could account for some soreness, but not this level. Even my back, which I've had problems with typically goes away once I wake up and start moving around.

    Both shots preceded a night shift (first one 2.5 hours before my shift, this one more than a day before). These are 12 hour all nighters, which I'm sure isn't helping.

    I wake up feeling like I haven't rested.

    I preferred how it was in the 90s. You got 10 outs (any swing that didn't result in a HR was an out). I think there was only 1 round too, so whoever had the most Homer's won. Easy peasy Japanese.

    If they'd introduce fielding and pitching competitions as well, that'd be awesome. At least until a pitcher fucked up their arm or shoulder during one.

    Wild game 7 started a little bit ago. Rooting for the wild but I think regardless who wins, that team will get taken out by the Avalanche. MacKinnon is stupid talented.
    Must be something in the drinking water in Cole Harbour?

    And I hope you are right, it's been a long 20 years since our last Cup.

    Also, fuck the NHL.
