I and my partner got our first dose last Friday. No side effect beside a slightly sore upper arm for less than 24 hours. My parents got their shots too, and my sister got her appointment for the first shot in May (surprisingly, she said Switzerland is really slow going with vaccination so far, slower than in the US apparently).
Please come back to update your poll answer as you get your shot! (to change your answer, you have to uncheck the old one first).
PS: If you're a non-vaxxer, this poll is not for you.

I am fully Vaccinated! And Alex had his first one done and will be getting his second one soon.
Weirdly enough I had more of a reaction to the first dose then the second. My arm was really sore for like a week and I was kind of foggy for a couple of days. Other than that I was fine. My second shot I had a sore arm for a couple days and was tired same day but that was it. XD

I got my first shot yesterday! The process was pretty quick and efficient. I noticed a few hours later that the nurse missed the actual injection site when putting the bandaid on lol. Like she couldn’t see where she had done the shot and put the bandaid too high.
I thankfully haven’t had any side effects. My arm was a but sore if I raised it but otherwise I was just tired. Though that may have been because I had to wake up early to get the vaccine, idk.
My immediate family consist of 6 people including me and every else is vaccinated, so I’m the last one haha.
I'm fully vaccinated! First shot was fine and just had a bit of a sore arm. The second one was a bit different as I had some mild side effects chills, tiredness, headache, and my arm was pretty sore. These only lasted a couple of days though and I was back to normal after that! -Bec-
got my first shot a couple weeks ago, i was fatigued pretty bad and had a fever for a couple days but after that it was fine my partner has had both dosages and only got side effects on the first dose, so i'm hoping i don't have any on the second one either, haha
I got my first dose about two weeks ago, and will get my second in about a week. My only side effect was a sore arm for about a day with the first one. I'll be leaving pretty much literally right after getting my second shot to drive to my in-laws' eight hours away (they're moving very soon, rather suddenly and unexpectedly, so it basically HAD to be that weekend), so I'm hoping that I don't get any of the bad side effects with the second shot that I've heard other people have had, because being in a car for that long is going to be not fun even without side effects messing me up lol
My husband got his vaccination a few days before me. He had massive chills and was very fatigued for about two days afterwards. He got the J&J, so just the one shot for him. I was actually signed up to get the J&J too, but the day before I got an email telling me that they ran out of J&J and that I'd be getting the Pfizer instead. I was like, oh well, like they say, the best vaccine is the one being offered to you. And then they paused the use of J&J a few days later, so I probably wouldn't have been able to reschedule for that one anyway, so it all worked out okay.
I'm very pleasantly surprised that we've already gotten ours, to be honest. I really thought that with us being mostly healthy thirty-somethings who work desk jobs, we wouldn't be eligible to get the vaccine until summer. It's really encouraging that we're at the point that they're able to offer the vaccine to such a wide range of people now.

I just got my second dose of Moderna on Tuesday, so in about two weeks I should be fully vaccinated!
My first dose I had a sore arm for a couple days, but it wasn't too bad (especially compared to the flu shot I had last October). I had a sore arm again after my second dose, but this time I also got a fever, chills, and nausea for ~24 hours (starting about 12 hours after the shot) which was awful - I was pretty much in bed all night and day. I also had aches/stabbing pains, mostly in my head around the temples, although those seem to have mostly faded by now. Currently my arm is red, warm, and a little itchy, which I guess is called "Covid/Moderna arm" and is a known side effect I had never heard about until I got it. -_-

I had my first dose (Astra Zenenca? Not sure how to spell it) on 16th march. Im waiting for a date for my 2nd. It should be around june. I felt a little bit rubbish for a day or 2 and had a sore arm for a few days but i was fine after that. Cant wait until this pandemic is over. Its been going on far too long. Glad you're all getting your vaccines
^^ Hope you don't get any side effects with your second dose, commander! That would indeed be tough driving like that! My dad had ZERO side effects with either dosy! (the only one in my family to have already had both doses -- me next). So different from one person to the next.
I really can't wait to get my second dose (on May 7), as I need to get a new prescription for my reading glasses so bad, but I don't dare going before I'm fully vaccinated. My eyes are screaming for it!!

Amazingly our tiny town's pharmacy gave shots... And even more amazingly my parents and I could get them all at once. I had a sore arm, and my joints ached a little bit, but that could have been the rain storm coming in the next day too. We got the J & J one as mom's terrified of shots.
Mom and Dad are old enough that if their joints ached they would have thought it was the rain coming in and not the shot. XD
The lady at the pharmacy was so good at giving shots, Mom's going there for her flu shot. It made the lady's day as she could see how scared Mom was. :-)
Just switched my answer to fully vaccinated! I only had a sore arm again, and the soreness actually lasted for less time than the first dose. The trip to St Louis went very well! This was our first time seeing them in person for a year and a half, and we finally got to meet our new niece, who's a year old already It was kind of a sad feeling knowing that that was our last time at that house, though.

Ratqueen: ^ A video called "The Rise and Fall of Petz" was posted on YouTube in the last week of April. It brought a lot of new members to the forum, every day for weeks after its release, and probably more guests too. Still getting more than usual now.
