What Symtoms Should I be expecting after my 2nd dose?
The 2nd dose of the Moderna vaccine and the warning we have is that there is a high chance of expecting flu-like symptoms: mainly chills, low-grade fever, and body aches. This is typical reaction to vaccines as this is triggering an immune response. Some may have had these side effects after the first dose, but we have seen this more prevalent in the 2nd dose. Full recovery should be expected by 3 days.
We have also seen a rash or tenderness near or below the injection site. Please report to your physician if this side effect is seen.
As usual, report any side effects to V-Safe.
Now Vaccinated, What can I do?
Still be smart and be safe.
Wear your masks!
Frequent Hand Washing
By no means does your 2nd vaccination provide full immunity. It takes 14-days from your 2nd dose to get to what is reported 98% protection. Our goal is to get to 70-90% herd immunity for the United States. WE STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. We can still carry the virus and transmit to people not vaccinated.
