I got the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on February 6, due to being a schoolteacher. I had a lot of arm soreness from it, but that's it as far as side effects. I should be getting my second dose in about 10 days or so.

I just got cancelled by Walgreen's on my second dose; a day before the appointment! They said they weren't contracted to give second doses. I told her, ' You've been keeping me waiting for two weeks, and you just sent me a confirmation/reminder email about it today!"

She said "I;m sorry" and hung up.

That stinks. You need to get your 2nd dose on time.

We’re getting our second dose next week.

The CDC has indicated that you don’t need to get it exactly 21 days (Pfizer) or 28 days (Moderna) after your first one. Up to 42 days after the first one is acceptable.

Good to know. Where we got our 1st shot we were told if we didn't appear for our 2nd appointment at 28 days (Moderna) we'd have to start over. Anyway we'll go on time.

Also, from what I can see and you shouldn’t take my word for this there is no difference between the first and second dose. In addition, the CDC indicated that in an emergency you can get a second dose different than the first one. In other words, if your initial dose was Pfizer, your second dose could be Moderna and vice versa. The applicable time limit would be the one for your first dose.

I took someone for dose 1 last Saturday; there were separate lines and vaccination stations for dose 1 and dose 2. Why would they do that if the doses are identical?

Paper work?

I tried another Walgreens, and they couldn't tell me if they were contracted for second doses. Forget them. I might be able to get a second dose at the same place I got my first dose, but it's going to be 37 days after the first dose.

I couldn’t tell you that because I’m not a doctor but I found a few articles indicating they’re the same. Here’s one article, which includes confirmation by one physician.

I'm thinking it's a records keeping thing. They will want to keep track of how many people have just one and how many people have gotten both. That's what I'd think anyway.

Pretty sure it’s a conspiracy.

Indeed. The UK government did a volte face and, contrary to the advice of the British Medical Association, the World Health Organisation and Pfizer, extended the 21 day gap to 3 months. I received a phone call cancelling my Jan 11th appointment for the second jab and have heard nothing since. Furthermore it was unlawful as I consented to medical treatment involving 2 jabs 21 days apart, but not to the revised arrangement.

Sorty to hear that. I haven’t been offered my second jab, although they are claiming that people are given a second appointment at the time of the first.

Got my second shot yesterday. I  don't feel bad though I'm tired.  Then again I'm often tired.

I received my second shot of the Moderna/NIH vaccine on 2/22/2021, and felt no side effects until the following day, which were mild. Felt like the early stages of a cold, but without the sore throat. Completely gone by the next day. 

I'm ready for any follow-up booster for any of the variants, if any are authorized later in the year.

I'm heartened by the reports of mild/non-terrible reactions to the second Moderna. Mine is about 10 days from now. I've heard stories about "being laid flat for 3 days" which have made me nervous, but now I'm not.

Is it time to update the poll. (I guess that happens in a couple of days anyway.) Several people here seem to have had both doses.

I just got my second Moderna shot today, 37 days after the first shot, instead of the recommended 28 days. The shot was painless (like the first), but the pain has started to kick in.

Will be posting about my misery starting tomorrow. I feel okay now.

What symptoms did you have. My arm hurt but seems to have subsided now.

My arm hurts. That's it for now. According to reactions to it from other people, the 'fun' starts about twelve hours after the shot, which for me will be 2:30am.

When I got the shot, I asked the young woman when I should start to expect experiencing side f/x, and she looked at me and said, "NOW".

It was like something out of a horror movie! AAGHHH!

The county sites are open three days each week, but online bookings go quickly. Same for Walmart pharmacies, so no vaccine yet for me, though I became eligible at the beginning of the week.

Everybody’s reactions will be different but I wouldn’t overthink it either. At any rate, after a few days you will probably feel better.
