It's the nano bot making its way through the arm veins, yeah it sucks but once it enters your brain the pain disappears so don't worry.
I think my nanobots broke. After my arm stopped hurting my head hurt instead. Do you think I can call Bill Gates for new ones?

pro-tip: after you get the shot, move your shoulder around in circles, and the next day if you can take a hot shower. Really helps loosen up the muscles!!

Can confirm both. My friend who's a nuclear medicine nurse said to rub the injection site for 20-30 seconds after injection and to keep your arm active. And this morning, hot shower was ACE at relaxing my arm. Just feels like I got a tetanus shot, besides the little bit of fatigue I'm chugging coffee through

Got Pfzier #2 yesterday and I'm feeling mostly Pfine

Kind of feels like someone kicked me in the arm and I'm generally achy and a little lightheaded, but nothing apart from that (so far)

Not true friend. Retail pharmacies can vaccinate anyone over 18 (might be 16) if you can find an appointment.

He lost his life in Chadds Ford, he was dancing with a train.

Essential, non-healthcare-related people in my state are pretty low on the list so I went and got antibodies the hard way by getting covid. This is potentially my second time having it (last Feb/March couldn't confirm because tests were too scarce but felt exactly like this time around), too, so I think if I get the vax I should be allowed to sit out the next pandemic.

I haven't gotten it, although technically I might be able to squeeze myself in with a technicality that could make me more vulnerable. But in reality I am pretty fit and healthy and content to wait until it is widely available for everyone in my state. I don't want to take any away from vulnerable elders, health care workers or teachers. Hopefully I will get it within the next couple months though.

Iím in California and canít get mine for another 2 weeks. Both my parents have had both shots, yay.

My MIL who lives in Tennessee has declared she wonít get a vaccine. Not for any of the usual Facebook poisoned boomer reasons but for her own made up beliefs about her health. (She self diagnoses as ďallergicĒ to everything).
But I think she will change her tune quick once she figures out sheís not seeing her granddaughter until she gets immunized.

Well, the stem cells' origins can be traced back to pureed babies from 35-40 years ago, but aren't directly from them. Hell, even the Catholic church came out with a statement saying it wasn't immoral to get the J&J vaccine.

Same, thought the actual injection was a bit more noticeable this time and I had some lightheaded spells last night too.

Fine today though.

Got my 1st Moderna nd my arm was sore a few days but nbd. Getting second mid April. My parents already had the second and said they just felt tired but were fine. My boss and some other people I work with said the second was terrible and they felt like they had the flu the next day. Also know a guy who got j&j and said it was fine, and someone who got Pfizer and said 2nd dose sucked

Do you feel yourself wanting more of those sweet sweet antibodies? If so, that was probably black tar heroin. My conservative family says it's just as effective.

They are loving it up bad in Germany.

One friend that's not in a priority group got the first shot due to a processing error. It's apparently common. They brought it up and it was recommend to just take it and be grateful. Meanwhile several old people and folks in risk groups still can't get an appointment.

I work in a government office and there is no chance of getting it anytime soon. No estimates.

Silver lining is that the major conservative party is shooting themselves in the foot. They're pissing off younger voters by perceived lenience of lockdowns, flip-flopping on policies, and the slow rollout. Their voter base of older folks are just dieing more than necessary.
The state leaders also have a surprising amount of decision making re: lockdowns, and are also loving it up. Saarland still plans to fully end lockdown after easter.

That doesn't work here because conservatives just make it harder for people to vote but it doesn't matter because neither party is interested in helping people anyway.

Ooof. One of those, huh?

The vaccines loving work. They've been doing more and more studies on them, recently they did one where dozens of people in the placebo group got covid and literally none in the vaccinated group. Also, they can't hurt you. It's funny because people put all kinds of poo poo in their bodies they don't understand, and also eat and drink things containing stuff that hasn't been proven to be safe, but all the sudden when it's a health care professional telling you to get something that's actually been studied quite a lot already (there's a global pandemic on, if you hadn't noticed, so it's kind of a priority) it's all bill gates microchips and genetic-altering tools of Satan.

Also the way the chuds are passing around a single story about someone who happened to die after they had one of their shots, it's pretty clear that, in fact, people have been perfectly safe taking the vaccine. If it was otherwise, believe me we'd be hearing a LOT about it.

If you actually understand the science behind how it was created you'd understand that there is no reason why it would or could hurt you.

Separately though I am so frustrated to be honest I know someone who's very intelligent and who's waiting in case the vaccines you know get you ill down the road. The problem with that reasoning is that the danger from coronavirus is known it's like gambling and I used to gamble all the time. They are making a bad bad Gamble
