I get my 2nd dose of pfizer tonight.  Trying to drink a lot of liquids today in the hopes hydration wards off any bad side effects, though I slept like poo last night and am groggy this morning so that may not help

Yay! Congrats! Def drink a lot of water afterwards too, and pop some motrin. I have prescription ibuprofen that I took that helped so much. 

The arm soreness wasn't terrible yesterday, it was the fatigue and achiness all over that knocked me on my butt. Just take it easy and listen to your body if you wake up tomorrow feeling run down.

The fatigue/lethargy was the worst side effect with the second Moderna shot. Headache/body aches were minor. Lasted about 6 hours but didn't want to do anything but lay in bed during that time.

I had some effects from my first dose of Moderna and my second shot is tomorrow.  Not letting that scare me tho.  I want this and will deal with whatever comes my way.

That's Mr. Map today. He got his second moderna yesterday morning and is still in bed. I have a feeling he will be taking the day off and just rest.

Nah, i was at CVS here in VA.  Tomorrow morning is the appointment so I'll have most of the day to see how it goes.  It really didn't hit me until about 24 hours later tho.  Saturday will be the real test.

Officially fully vaccinated today (two weeks after second dose) and it is my last day of classes as a junior at UVA! Time flies...

Also super excited to let ya'll know that I'll interning with Accuweather over the summer. Getting all kinds of weather journalism experience... it really is the passion of people here that has kept me so enthused about the weather.

I'm very bummed.  Does anyone know of a text site that even closely replicates this?

I wonder if the data can be cherry-picked from a model run from numerical or pivotal then put into a spreadsheet. I’m being naive. Probably not that simple.

Wow, had no clue this was a thing. Definitely would have made use of it.

Same! I just checked it out now because of the current discussion. How've I not known about this site before?! It's awesome.

Congrats to both! Internships are seriously the best. I interned with Sue Palka during one of my summers and it was an amazing experience. Learned I cannot hack on-air meterology and fell in love with making graphics that went into her weather segments. Got me on my path to cartography/GIS.

I got clobbered by my second Pfizer dose. Total exhaustion, body aches, etc. Day 2 and a little into Day 3.

Sorry to hear! It's kind of crazy how it impacts everyone differently. My husband got dose 2 of moderna Wednesday and he was on his ass all day yesterday.

I got that after the first shot so something good was going on.  Must be the 5G cause now I'm getting calls and mail from old people housing and old people glee clubs.  Never had those before.  Right, @mappy?

I got Moderna, but I felt fine after the second shot, until about 18 hours later. Everyone responds a little differently, so hopefully you don't experience anything other than a sore arm.

And your usual gas.
