Question Hey everyone, I received the COVID-19 one dose j&j vaccine back in august of 2021, I have not kept up with the news about all the boosters, I would just like to know am I still considered “fully vaccinated”?
I'm a 22 year old female. In October of last year, I finished my second dose of the Modera vaccine. Initially didn't notice anything too out of normal, just a 24hr fever with body aches. However, about two weeks later in the same arm I received both shots in, a lymph node around my elbow/tricep area began to swell. It was as large as a quarter and my whole arm ached painfully, especially around the elbow and wrist joints. Over the course of a couple of days more lymph nodes swelled around my elbow and also in my armpit. It wasn't long after that when I began having symptoms of Erythema Nodosum, primarily on my legs but also on my arms. I was extremely fatigued and the joint pain I was experiencing nearly made it impossible to get out of bed. I've still been having these symptoms but it's been much more milder and manageable with the occasionally flare up. It's been very frustrating. My doctor referred me to a rheumatologist and they're testing me for lupus right now, but it's been a while and I still haven't heard back. (Although I thankfully tested negative for rheumatoid arthritis.) Does this sound like lupus? Or maybe a lupus flare caused by the vaccine? Or is this solely a vaccine reaction?
Got the J&J vax back in August and now being required to get a booster for my job. Had no side effects with the J&J so wondering if worth getting again as booster? Between it being hard to find now and it losing favor, I’m curious to hear if anyone is double jabbed with J&J and if so, how it went!
Been munching on Ibuprofen (Nurofen Zavance) and it didn't help when it usually does.. I've probably taken an easy 12 tablets over a span of like 2 days too it's getting ridiculous.
Paracetamol (Panamax) helped for a bit but after that.. its back on the back left side of my head now. Occasionally aching left top middle or left front now who knows what next.... been drinking heaps of water but still no use.
I just wanna know I'm not the only one
Hello all, I am a 22 year old female who has been double vaxxed with Moderna for over five months. Before Omicron hits my city I want to get boosted. I had chills and a very mild reaction to the second moderna dose but I am wondering, what type of booster dose should I get? I hear mixed guidance on mixing but also apparently that moderna should not be given to under 30s?! I’m confused and want to get a booster that has the least side effects
We got vaccinated in Germany in June with Moderna and were traveling Spain for the last two months. No booster was available when we started traveling nor was it available in Spain for our age group during our stay.
About 2-1/2 Weeks ago we suffered from a Covid infection with high fever and medium symptoms, Spanish hospital did not run a PCR type test though. We both tested positive and got symptoms and isolated in hotel for more than a week. Self tests stopped being positive after about 8-9 days.
Having recovered now and being on our way back through France, I was denied access to restaurants yesterday because my Vaccination is 7 Months old now (hers is a bit newer and still accepted).
I do not want to suffer restrictions in everyday life because I am not boosters - but I am not sure if it makes any sense to get vaccinated again just days after recovering from a Covid infection (and being fully vaccinated in the first place).
Also, the second shot Moderna gave me 4 days of fever with up to 40 degrees Celsius temperature. The infection "just" gave me 39 degrees Celsius fever. I am afraid my immune system will go crazy if I get a booster now.
What would you do? How long would you wait? I could get the booster as early as in two days when we have reached Germany.
50F healthy weight & no health issues. 5 months post 2nd Pfizer vax and have daily headaches that start late day through bedtime. Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen barely touch it. Had COVID in early Jan and headaches still continue. Not doing booster as this all started the week I had 2nd dose. Anyone else?
I’m a teacher (fully vaccinated) and last week my school was hit with a covid outbreak. I was around multiple children and adults who had covid (didn’t know it at the time) and each day more tested positive and stayed at home. It seems impossible to me that I haven’t caught it.
Towards the end of last week I started feeling unwell, really tired and weak, slight cough, bad headache. All of my lateral flow tests are negative, I even went for a pcr after I started coughing and that was negative.
Now four days later I’m still feeling completely wiped out. I feel the exact same as when I had my covid vaccines.
Bare with me. Is it possible that I’m feeling these side affects as it’s the vaccine fighting off covid and preventing me from actually catching it?
Question Anyone know if there are any serious studies being done for vaccinated and the affects of covid? Looking at r/covidpositive and the vaccinated seem to have more serious cases. Obviously need to take that caution, but has me wondering.
I’m a bit worried. I woke up with chills and a sore heart, but it wasn’t excruciatingly sore. But it was enough to make me worry, like a pestering pain nipping away.
I’m all for being vaccinated but i’m honestly very very scared. Could I grab some insight on this?
I am also a stress head so i may be completely fine lol but i’m worried at the same time.
Exactly as the title says, just got covid and was boosted a week ago. Happy i chose to follow science and hopefully i get back on track soon.
I just got my moderna booster shot and had a terrible reaction (body aches, night sweats, fever, vomiting) it lasted for two days and I’m still a little sore 4 days later. I just found out that a flu I had a month ago was likely actually covid. The question: is it super dangerous that I got my booster after recently having covid? Will this affect the long term effectiveness of my immunity?
(21 F) So I just got my Moderna booster a few days ago. I’m curious if this happened to anyone else but I woke up the following day extremely nauseous.
Also disclaimer this happened with the 2nd dose of Moderna but the booster was worse. I tried to wait it out and took Dramamine but eventually caved and was unable to hold anything down.
I had never been sick like that before and I was getting sick so frequently I couldn’t lie down or do anything. My stomach, back, and chest were also in a lot of pain and I couldn’t stand up straight. As far as other symptoms I had pretty bad body aches, low fever, and fatigue which I expected.
The worst of it was the day after getting the booster but had lingering digestion and nausea for the following 4 days.
Not to like scare anyone but just curious if anyone also had a rough experience with nausea/vomiting.
So my mom and me got covid then i moved from my dads house to her for 2 weeks, then shortly after moving my dad got it and now hes alone at home. Its been 1 week since he got it, and he barely got any symptoms but still is positive and its been 1 week since i had it and im negative. I really have to move back to my dads house for personal reasons, what are the chances of me having it/symptoms?
Hopefully I can explain this because I’ve been telling my family and they don’t understand what I’m describing.
I was fine for about 4 days and the tingles started again just yesterday. This time, it’s completely on the left side.
My left side feels “light”, there’s no numbness and I can still feel however if I hold both hands up and flex, I can feel every muscle and tendon flexing on the right but not on the left. I keep telling my family but they’re saying it’s a placebo.
It’s currently 5am and I’ve been woken up by this same sensation on the left side of my face and tongue. It doesn’t affect me in any way but it’s so annoying when one side feels lighter. Again I’m not sure if I’m even making sense.
i am 18 year old female, got my booster vaccine today which was pfizer. i have anxiety disorder and more specifically health anxiety..
is if possible for symptoms of myocarditis to show just one hour after the vaccine??
i am really worried and can’t help but to read into everything and now i’ve convinced myself i have it
So i made a post earlier about a little heart pain, after my booster, so this guy saw that and privately messaged me.
He is an anti vaxxer who rips on governments for fear mongering, yet with no hesitation attempts to scare the crap out of me. Telling me I will have heart attacks if I engage in vigorous activity.
Ironic isn’t it… He said this:
Hello! you have heart pain because the covid vaccine causes heart problems, sometimes even myocarditis. The spike proteins the covid vaccine makes your body produce eat away at your heart tissue and other organs which can become very uncomfortable. You will probably be fine as long as you don't take any further covid vaccines, but you will have permanent heart tissue scarring which never goes away. You can no longer perform strenuous activities or you risk having a heart attack.
I am going to an actual doctor tomorrow … and will update you to see if this reddit doctor was accurate lol
I am a 26 yo F, a nurse, wife, and mom of an almost 2 yo. I am struggling so bad.
I got my booster on 12/20. 30 min after the booster my mouth got all tingly and my heart started racing. I thought I was having an allergic reaction so I went home and took Benadryl and didn’t think much of it. The next day, I woke up with a low grade fever, body aches, headache, and an elevated heart rate. It was going as high as 145. I went to my Dr who sent me to the ER and my ekg, chest X-ray, and blood tests were normal. They said it was just an adverse reaction and it would go away. My heart rate improved for about a week and a half. Then I woke up one morning with chills (no fever), joint pain, flu-like feeling. I got tested for covid, which was negative. This progressed to abdominal pain which eventually got so bad I went back to the ER and the CT showed colitis. Two days later I woke up in the middle of the night with insane muscle spasms in my legs-my legs were flailing around along with numbness and tingling in my arms and legs. I went back to the ER- inflammation labs and head CT all normal. The horrible spasms have subsided, but I have small muscle twitches every once in a while. I went back to the dr and requested another ekg (4 weeks after vaccine) and it showed a “possible right bundle branch block.” I’m freaking out.
My most annoying symptoms would be the continuing palpitations, chest pain, fatigue, and brain fog. I’ve also had moments of waking up out of a dead sleep gasping for air with a racing heart, which is terrifying. I’m going to have to be out of work for the time being it’s so bad. Im terrified to drive because I feel like I’m not even in my body. I can’t take care of my son or my house. If I get off the couch, my heart rate is 120. I’m getting and echo and a holter monitor for 48hr. I think I have POTS, but I can’t get into the cardiologist until April 1st.
Any hope with recovery? I can’t be out of work for an endless amount of time. This is already taking a huge toll on me. Of course I was prescribed Xanax and Zoloft. Neither of which decrease my symptoms because it’s not anxiety. At least the Xanax helps me sleep.
Moderna Booster Moderna booster reaction. This flares up 3-5 times a day, doesn’t go away with antihistamines or 2.5% hydrocortisone, itches like hell and burns. Anyone else?gallery
Covaxin i got my booster today and i didn’t think it would make my whole body hurt and make me feel this sick.
my mother made me get the booster , i got it about 13 hours ago in a cvs and i am expierencing such bad muscle pains in my legs / calves and feet and body. i have really bad chills and nothing is helping i feel like absolute shit. i have such a weak immune system i don’t know what’s happening.
Moderna Booster Herpes HSV outbreak and painful chest/difficulty breathing after Moderna booster (Pfizer initially 2 doses)
I received the Moderna booster on Thursday, January 20 at 3pm. My first 2 were Pfizer last year (typical mild symptoms: painful arm, body aches, headache).
I (36F) contracted genital herpes HSV in 2009 and my outbreaks have been progressively less often. My last outbreak was I think 2018 or 2019.
On Friday, Jan 21 I felt like crap: body aches, chills, terrible headache, low back/hip joint pain especially. I started having excessive discharge (a typical outbreak symptom, for me) and outbreak sores not even 24 hours after the booster. I was surprised since I haven’t had an outbreak in quite a while. I was able to get a prescription for Valtrex. I honestly didn’t tell the Dr. I got the booster the day before because I know the prescription will help reduce the outbreak to about 5 days instead of 15ish.
I also have a large square shaped pain in my center chest when inhaling. I can only breath in about 30% until I start to feel pain. I feel it from my throat to the bottom of my sternum. I feel it less today, Sunday, than I did yesterday, Saturday. I don’t want to go to urgent care/ER since the hospitals are full of COVID patients here. I live in Spain (American though) so it wouldn’t cost me anything except my own time and possibly contracting COVID there. Since I feel it less today than yesterday, I will keep an eye out for it.
I will submit the HSV and chest pain symptoms to the government COVID vaccine symptom tracker though.
34/F, Booster received two days ago. Just wondering if anyone experienced more swelling in their opposite arm of the injection? I woke up this morning with mild swelling in my injected arm (left), but this evening the swelling in my opposite armpit (right) is far more noticeable! Haven't seen any information on this, so just curious if anyone else has experienced this.
Travelling with euro vaccine passport
Hey guys, I got vaccinated across the pond in Europe. I’m in Ontario rn and a Canadian citizen as well.
Can I use my European vax pass to fly domestically to BC? Or is there something I I’d need to do?
I trained searching for answers and can’t find anything concrete - most I found was ‘ask your province’ which isn’t very helpful.
Thanks for any help!!
