The FDA says Pfizer’s Covid vaccine is safe and effective. But trial participants warn of intense symptoms after second shot

I don't like the headline. They aren't in contrast to each other. Feeling kinda shitty for a day or two doesn't mean it's not safe.

It says it's SAFE and effective? It just warns about side effects from the 2nd shot..

One Pfizer trial participant told CNBC that after the second shot, he woke up with chills, shaking so hard he cracked a tooth. "It hurt to even just lay in my bed sheet," he said.

I just don't like the use of the but there. It almost makes it seem like the fda says one thing but the trial participants say another. 

I've been following the vaccine stuff a lot. This vaccine does cause more side-effects than your typical flu vaccine. So science communication will be important to let people know that. The side-effects are from the immune system reaction. It means its working.

There are several side effects to my Bills tailgating the following morning but I continually do it. 

Sorry, I know you're trying to be serious. The government will have to be very transparent about possible side effects and for the citizens to not be alarmed by them.

Weren't severe side effects 0-4.6%? Also "severe" is relative. None of the side effects required hospitalization.

Of course. Theyre bad enough in a percentage of people that you might be out of work for a day or two. Like you dont vaccinate all your nurses on a single day.

This is actually a decent point. I’m willing to bet money I’ve had hangovers that are an order of magnitude worse than the side effects from the vaccine. Not concerned about it at all.

Hey now!  What’s all this weather talk in the banter thread!  lol!

 

Ill be interested to see the rest of the evening meso runs come in.  HRRR has been dead set all afternoon on a 6”+ hit in central Erie county.  The last AFD makes mention that the mesos are probably over doing the precip output, but do agree it will be just cold enough for all snow in the morning... let’s see!

My moms immunotherapy is Keytruda. You see the commercial for it on TV? The side effects are like 2 minutes long, but guess what? That treatment has shunk my moms tumor by 60%!!!!!! Radiation did very little to her tumor, it actually grew. Chemo/immunotherapy during second treatment is working!

So happy to read that!

My brother is in the Moderna trial. First dosage he felt a little achy and tired the next day, but felt fine by the morning after that. He’s pretty sure he got the actual vaccine, partly because of side effects but mostly because he had two extended periods of exposure to COVID positive coworkers in a relatively confined space about six weeks apart. The more recent exposure involved a arrogant fool of a coworker who had removed his mask for about 30 minutes with his back turned to my brother and two colleagues. The two colleagues both developed symptoms within days, and one of them was hospitalized for over a month. My brother was in quarantine but went to be tested three times over two weeks, and was negative all three times. He also had antibody testing, but the trial protocol won’t reveal those results to him.

I’m sold. Sign me up.

There have been 2 reports of allergic reactions in 2 UK recipients, however, they have had a history of severe allergic reactions in the past and both carry an epipen regularly. Don't see this being much different than most other vaccines for that risk group.

Looking good.

Trying to plan out my trips for 2021 once we can travel again. Thinking of going to Alaska for 2 weeks in summer. I think international travel won't be full go until 2022 or late 2021. 

My trip to st Lucia next month is still a go and we’re planning either Iceland or Spain next fall. All sorts of great deals out there right now. Only downside is flight schedules seem to have been trimmed.
