Vaccine: Moderna

FIRST DOSE: first week of January 2021

  • Symptoms: injection site pain only .
    • Day 1: minimal soreness. Expected.
    • Day 2: EXTREME soreness. Felt like triple the soreness from the day before.
    • Day 3: Soreness 98% GONE!
  • Overall: The only symptom I noticed was discomfort at the injection site. The only thing that's worth mentioning was the severity of the soreness the first 3 days. It went from minimal soreness, EXTREME soreness, to almost none at all. To me, there was no gradual transition on the severity. It was either really bad or nonexistent lol Other than that, it did not stop me from going to work or doing everyday things. I just took it easy on the arm so I don't strain it or stress it out. Used very minimal movements and tried not to c...
