My 2nd dose of Pfizer was delayed because I felt like I was coming down with something on the day I was originally scheduled for, but it was an easy process to reschedule it and I took it this past Saturday. It hurt some, the first one didn’t, and my arm was sore after 5 or 6 hours. But the next day, about 20 hours after the shot, the side effects hit me hard. One of the worst headaches I have ever experienced, and a fever of 101.7. Nauseous, and random pain through the rest of that day and night, then about 28 hours after the side effects started, they subsided and I was exhausted from the ordeal. I did not expect that at all, and in my mind I was secretly making fun of all those people complaining about 2nd shot side effects! Karma I guess!
