From an investigators perspective, if you are looking at an AE you want every detail that MIGHT be relevant to the procedure in question.Bill, I have two questions . . .
(2) What difference does it make which arm was injected ?
Amigo, with all due respect, that's some negligent reporting, timingwise. Anyways, it doesn't seem like a major issue. It self-resolved. Sheesh, vertigo is such a nebulous state. No worries.Likely related.
My wife and others at her hospital had the same reaction after 2nd dose.
I mis-reported; The Vertigo was ~18 hrs after the first dose, ~18hrs after second dose she and others experienced bad chills.
They received Pfizer.
Yes and that will all be dissected out in the post-marketing safety studies that will continue for years. If anything stands out, there's enought vaccine recipients to show statistical relevance. Nobody's paying much attention yet to retrospectively associating a previously documented headache or dizziness bout to end results regarding infectivity/primary symptomology. Not enough resources. These relationships (or lack thereof) are what you will read in B-grade papers in the med journals in 5 years. Not to mention that the rapid distribution based on a few select criteria, usually with highly limited background health data (I manage clinical trials--my forte besides painting the sky), and these data are not being collected in an orderly and complete fashion as in a protocol-driven study like the ones that got vaccine approval... Well we have a lot to learn still. And more because the goalposts will continue to move with new variants, and the epidemiology of variant appearance and spread is a whole different field by itself.From an investigators perspective, if you are looking at an AE you want every detail that MIGHT be relevant to the procedure in question.
Sometimes seemingly unrelated detail can uncover a pattern, sometimes it has no value.
Though it "appears" that states are doing well in documenting vaccine administration, it won't take but a brief google search to learn that the consolidation of this information into a national database is sorely lacking (it's just not happening yet). Personally, if I lived in any state besides NY, I'd trust my local officials for vaccination statistics over the current CDC reports (they're trying real hard), and (gasp) I wouldn't trust jack-squat that issues from the mouth of DC politicians.Bill,
Is that PA state database a list of people from which their name is removed or a notation made, following vaccination ?
There it is, in a nutshell. People simply do not trust the information or the sources of that information.Though it "appears" that states are doing well in documenting vaccine administration, it won't take but a brief google search to learn that the consolidation of this information into a national database is sorely lacking (it's just not happening yet).

Take it easy and plan for symptoms after the second dose.My wife and I got our first shots of the Moderna vaccine yesterday. The process was extremely easy and well done from beginning to end.
Our county uses our Civic Center to administer the shots. Making a reservation to get the shot was extremely easy. I used the online ticketing website for the civic center to “buy” two zero cost tickets to the “vaccination event”. That literally took two minutes total for tickets for both of us.
Because we were in the age group that requires some underlying condition we received a call from a person. That person also told us the easiest way to approach the event and explained the parking situation which was also very well done. All the people helping were friendly and cheerful. Both of us were done getting our shots within twelve minutes which included easy consent forms and the form we bring back in four weeks.
The shot was painless. My wife, who has had thousands of shots (I used to give her shots of avonex and copaxone) looked at me and said “Well, that was nothing!”
22 hours later and neither of us have had any effects other than tenderness at the injection site.
It is getting closer. Although, we don't eat out and in restaurants all too often and other things we like to do have either been possible all along, like hiking and bike riding, or are have been completely shut down like going to concerts and baseball games.I am sure you and your wife are still cautious, but does life appear a bit more ”normal” now that you both are vaccinated? Or at least closer to the “new normal “?
If you are asking me, I would say “no, not yet.”I am sure you and your wife are still cautious, but does life appear a bit more ”normal” now that you both are vaccinated? Or at least closer to the “new normal “?
That is classic - 12-26 hrs.I'm three weeks out from the second dose of Moderna. Almost exactly 24hrs after the second dose I began to feel feverish with a headache and body aches. (I would call it mild) Went to bed early and woke up feeling fine. Feeling great ever since. Well worth it!
Very similar between Pfizer and Moderna - 12-36 hours of symptoms. They occur 12-24 hours latter. Nothing bad enough to make me swear off a third booster dose if the CDC ever says it is needed.My wife and I both got two Pfizer shots with no after effects except maybe a little soreness at the the injection site on the first shot. Mine was about 2 weeks ago and hers was about 1 week ago. The staff at our Dentist office got the Moderna shot and they said that they had some after effects.
