    Andrea, sorry to hear you guys had a reaction. Time to tuck yourself in. They do say it’s a sign of your immune system working. You should hopefully feel better tomorrow. I’ve heard of a few people getting fevers and chills. For them it resolved itself in 24 hours.

    I've read that as well, that it's the vaccine working its way through your system and ramping up protection. One of the reasons I scheduled my second shot for early on a Sunday morning so I have all day and night to deal with whatever side effects may visit me if any. A friend of mine was fine after her 2nd shot, even went out to lunch to celebrate. By nightfall, she felt like she had the flu and was miserable. But all better the next morning!! My 80+ landlords had no side effects at all! It's hit or miss.
    Try to get a good night's sleep, Andrea. Maybe take another dose of Tylenol and Motrin before crawling into bed. Feel better!! Dreamy of crystal blue water and palm trees swaying in the tradewinds...

    I am currently in line for my 2nd shot, and hoping for not too much of a reaction. Something that happened to me, they scheduled me for yesterday
    I showed up and was told I was a day too early. Not sure if this goes for everywhere, but if your 2nd appointment is less than 17 days from your first, you may want to question it.
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.

    Good thoughts for feeling well after your shot. Tom didn’t have any kind of reaction to either of his shots. Good luck.

    wishing you well Tracey


    I hope that you get 0 reaction.
    If you do, take a Tylenol and go directly to bed and let it pass.

    Great info here. I too am very interested in the JNJ vaccine and its my preference for a number of reasons- the most important is its been 100% effective keeping people out of the hospital- what more could you really ask for?

    All that said my wife has worked for JNJ for the past 25 years or so and we do own jnj stock so as you could guess I am pretty positive about JNJ.

Also, the J&J vaccine is showing capability on reducing transmission of the virus... that was an interesting dimension. And it's effective at preventing deaths and serious illness. I'd take it.

    I don't work for J&J, do not hold stock in it and nobody in my life works for them either. Just to be transparent!!
