Oh Moderna!

As soon as the Moderna booster was available, my husband, who'd had the J&J shot, went to the drugstore and received the booster.

He had no issues to speak of. No arm soreness, no aches, no fever.

Yesterday I received my Moderna booster. I started out with Moderna.

This morning, I do not feel well. I had a bad night, and my arm is very sore (the flu shot also made my arm sore too, but not like this). All of my joints ache and everywhere things have hurt in the past, they are hurting now.

I haven't had any acetaminophen; I don't like to take it as it makes my ears ring even worse than they normally do.

Other folks have noted that the booster has done them in. I am not reporting this to make anyone think twice about the booster - obviously it is something that one should receive - but to warn folks not to expect a cake walk.

Reactions depend on the person. It's hard to know how one will react to this booster.


  1. I am considering the booster. I had Covid last December and did fine. My first Moderna shot made me feel horrible, while the second dose didn't faze me at all. I hope you have a quick turnaround and get back to normal.

  2. Sorry to hear that Anita, I hope you feel better soon!

  3. I'm considering the Pfizer booster--but will see what the pharmacy recommends as I had Moderna for the initial doses.

  4. Hubs was knocked down for the day, and I felt nothing but a little sore arm on Pfizer. It really depends on the individual, doesn't it? I hope you feel better soon!!
