J&J once off is apparently worse than the Pfizer side effects (either dose).

I got mine at NMU (Nelson Mandela University) walk in centerWhere did you get the J&J jab? As far as I know, it's not available in SA.
Mild arm ache last night around midnight, still sore this morning. No other side effects.So wanted to add, about 10 hours after I got vaccinated I had a very light fever. Enough to keep me warm in this kak cold but also enough to stop me from getting to sleep.
So basically this after first Pfizer jab (and I'm in my late 30s for better context):
2-3 hours - mild arm ache and fatigue
6-8 hours - mild arm ache and heavy fatigue
10 hours - mild arm ache, heavy fatigue, and light fever
The next morning (now) - mild arm ache
Got J&J from outside the spar just now. Surprised there weren't any queues.I got mine at NMU (Nelson Mandela University) walk in center
They started this week with J&J (They still doing 2nd shots Pfizer)
Some stock must have been released from Aspen or arrived from elsewhere to replace the destroyed stock.
It actually isn’t such a huge mystery. Viruses and bacteria evolve into new strains / variants to get around our defenses and exploit our weaknesses as they go along, and one way we as a species counter that is by constantly mixing up our own dna so that we don’t all share the same weaknesses. It’s simply due to genetic variation, really.Yep, many people who got their first or second vaccines and got any side effect do run to doctors. Most will walk away with some sort of prescription with Panado or something similar.
All side effects, no matter what they are, or how severe for now are seen as normal.
Still many years of research needs to be done on side effects and who gets it and why. Still way too little information available.
Stress of worrying about showing symptoms. Then because you experience nothing you now start worrying about not experiencing anything. A vicious circle.I had exactly the same.
1st dose of Pfizer.
The sore arm (really nothing more than a bit of muscle pain) was expected.
The restless night was not. It was not a fever. Was like a weird alertness.
Yes, it is not a problem to take them afterwards as long as you wait until you have symptoms rather than taking as a prophylaxis. Research results say don’t take them beforehand.A reminder to those that don't know.
Try not to take pain killers or anti inflammatory stuff after getting vaccinated unless it becomes necessary. Helps the vaccine work better and provide stronger immunity.
Very few older people have had the J&J (amongst the population, not the HCWs and other identified groups).Had the J&J shot.
Felt terrible the next day - very fluish, tired and aches/pains.
After about 48 hours, I was back to normal. It seems that the J&J shot hits younger people more than the older folk.
