    Had first Astra Zeneca jab a few weeks ago. No issues at all, apart from a sore arm. Expecting my second jab in June as the UK is allowing up to 12 weeks between the first and second.

    I just got my first vaccine 3 days ago and I was surprised at how tired it made me feel. But I’d rather be tired for a few days than get COVID.

    While the Supreme Leader blames jinns on the problems and bans US and UK vaccines, I noticed Pfizer had a factory here in my country before the Islamic revolution 1979. :thermometer_face:

    Is it just a four week gap between doses?

    I got my second dose of Moderna on Monday. Yesterday wasn't great with a headache and a low-grade fever, but not unbearable and I'm back to normal today. Highly recommended.

    That’s what’s recommended.

    The manufacturer recommends it but in various places they are extending the spacing to up to 12 weeks in order to be able to give more people their first injection. (that is what is happening here where I live)

    I am getting my first this saturday (I initially did not want to because of the animal testing of it but in discussions I have decided that by getting this shot it helps reduce the chance of needing to develop another vaccine due to mutations which would then result even more animal testing)

    It's 3 weeks for Pfizer. It's 4 weeks for Moderna. This is in the U.S. and if they're scheduling the second injection when you present for the first injection. When i went in, they immediately gave me the second appointment 21 days later. At the exact same time.

    They have said that more time in between vaccinations is fine if they run into supply problems or if the patient can't get there on a specific date. They really want people to get that second booster for the vaccines that call for 2 injections.

    I got my first dose of Moderna a couple days ago. Only side effect was a sore arm for a few days.

    I already received my first dose and it did not hurt or cause any negative reactions. I got Mederna, I believe. My mother said that she wanted to get it first just in case, and then I got it. I think eventually we will all need to be vaccinated to be able to do normal things again, such as stores requiring you to have been vaccinated fully or something.
