    I got my second shot yesterday (pfizer) and I haven't had much of a reaction yet other than feeling a little tired?

    Im sure everything will go well!

    I had my vaccinations a couple of months ago and have been fine.

    Hi there Bell87 and thanks for your post.

    Yes I used to also freak out over injections and once passed out onto the floor!

    These days it's no problems whatsoever - I just look away, chat away and think about what I'm doing the rest of the day. Avoid looking at the syringe.

    For Covid vaccination, the science in favour of getting vaccinated is overwhelming and in my view you are doing the right thing for your body, family, friends and the community.

    I am sure it will not be a problem at all. As the say, keep calm and carry on!1

    All the best, The Bro

    Hi Bell87,

    I had both of mine and was worried I'd end up with a fever and that I would need to take some time off from work. I ended up experiencing some body aches. I think it really depends on your body, but if you were ok when you took your first dose, then hopefully your second one should be ok too. When you get vaccinated they provide you with information on what to do if you develop any problems or have concerns. Good luck. Hope this helps.
