I'll be getting my second Covid-19 vaccine today at Dorney Park. I'm scheduled for the Moderna vaccine. After Vaccine #1, my arm was sore a few days and I had a very good night's sleep. I had no fatigue, fever or headache. I've been told to drink lots of water before Vaccine #2, and it will make side effects less severe.
I know a large number of people who have had either the Pfizer or Moderna. None has reported any serious side effects.
What has your experience been?
Do you have any recommendations for those who are waiting?
The CDC has eased its masking guidelines for those who are fully vaccinated, basically stating no masks are needed outdoors at small gatherings. A Japanese study indicates that the virus is 19 times more likely to spread in a closed environment.
I do not wear a mask outdoors unless I am near people.
I will continue to mask and social distance until the number of new cases is negligible. Even then, I may continue to mask and social distance because, let's be honest, these precautions make it less likely to contract any respiratory virus.
