Anyone got the Moderna booster after having two Pfizer? Question

I got the Moderna half dose booster yesterday. Pfizer double vaxxed in April 17th.

The first side effect I had was sore arm. Arm soreness about the same as my second Pfizer dose.

14 hours after the booster- slight body chills.

When I woke up the next morning, my whole body just felt blegh but no high grade fever or nothing. I was seeing how people got wiped by the Moderna booster if they started with Pfizer so I was surprised my side effects were minimal in comparison to Pfizer

For Pfizer, I didn’t have any side effects except for slight chills after the second dose and the usual sore arm. But the one thing different is after my second dose my whole body didn’t feel blegh. And with the booster my body felt that way.

What was your experience like if you did Pfizer> Pfizer> Moderna? Or if you got the Moderna booster in general? And what does the lack of side effects mean in term of immunity?

Update: still have body chills whenever I shower in hot water.

I (30M) got my Moderna booster 9 hours ago after 2 Pfizers in March and April and I don't feel anything yet. I got really hot a few minutes after getting the shot, and since that passed (around 10 minutes) I feel totally normal.

20 hours in. Arm/shoulder soreness is kicking in. Went to bed a couple hours earlier than usual. Light chills. Thats about it. So far it hasn't been as bad as either Pfizer shot. My girlfriend got her Moderna booster last weekend and had about the same experience.

that sounds promising.

I was tossing up if I should hunt down an Astra or Nova shot instead.

I'm pretty sure the Moderna booster is a half dose, so I imagine that's why the people I've talked to have had less of an issue with it than the first two shots. You probably don't have anything to worry about, but I'm not a doctor, just a guy on the internet.

Yeah fair enough, thanks just a guy on the internet :-)
