Please get the shot if you are healthy enough and able to. New things are scary, but COVID19 disease is more scary. To achieve herd immunity, we need about 70% or more people to receive the vaccine. If we work together to achieve this, we can also help protect people who cannot receive the vaccine due to underlying health conditions. Let`s do our part to keep everyone safe!
Moderna, dose #1
I felt great for the first 8 hours and even cycled around in Tokyo. ~10 hours after shot, I felt some body aches in lower back and legs. The following 6 hours, I had more body aches, resolving after 500mg of acetaminophen. 24 hours after the shot, I still had dull headache and fatigue, but all symptoms resolved by 36 hours after the shot.
