Each time I received the shot I was met with minimal cold like symptoms afterwards. One thing I did experience was a lot of fatigue and some body pain for a while, but it began to ease as the weeks went by. All in all, I'm glad I decided to get the vaccine!
After the first dose I was fine no side effects at all. The second dose I had a lot of the side effects (headache, chills, and nausea).
Overall good experience. Only experienced mild muscle pain at the injection site but it subsided in 24 hours.
Some side effects experienced the day after the vaccine lasting 3 days. Side effects I experienced was exhaustion the 1st day after the vaccine. Some diarrhea the second day with general tiredness the second and third days. A little tenderness at the injection site the day after the vaccine. Overall not bad at all. Plan time for rest.
My arm was a little sore for the first shot and when I got the second one I had like a 24hr bug but the next day I was ok
