VixenBelladonna

Curious if anyone else with similar health issues also got the “covid arm” reaction to the Moderna vaccine. This was from my booster, both my previous shots were Pfizer and I think if we need more I might insist on getting Pfizer instead because I definitely had less of a reaction, I mean I still had a day where I needed to just rest in bed but there was less fevers and pain and itchiness at least. I also did the flu shot in the same arm at the same time, not sure if that makes a difference. Anyway I’m still totally happy to be vaccinated just curious if reactions like this are maybe more common in our population.

      To be clear “COVID arm” is a rash and itching at the injection sight along with swollen lymph nodes beyond the normal just sore arm issue with flu shots and the like that is a common issue

      This is a common complaint with most people, Covid vaccine in particular.

      I had this issue with each dose of the vaccine I received!

      I just chalked it up to doing the flu shot and booster at the same time and the same arm. My lymph nodes were swollen in my armpit, shoulder, neck and chin like tennis ball sized

      I definitely got the covid arm so badly. I also got the flu shot and covid booster at the same time and I was pretty much completely unable to use my arms to bear any weight after that
