Mine was Moderna. However, this is what concerns me. Other than the sore arm, the first shot did not bother me. I suppose I will learn for myself on April 12 and the days following the second shot.

With the first shot I just had a sore arm and a short, mild headache. However, for me completing the vaccination was worth one day of reduced productivity.

The Ox-AZ dose gave me a sore arm for ~4 days and even more lethargy than usual for 2 days. No other side-effects noticed as I recall.

I had an extremely sore arm for ~48 hours after my first shot (Pfizer) and the same, but for less than a day, following the second shot. My wife, who got the same vaccine, was practically knocked out for a day (lethargy and generally "down") from the first shot and similar (feeling bad the same day, then tired the first half of the next) following the second. I hear the side effects are generally worse for (nonpregnant) women, which matches our experience. But I wouldn't give much credence to an N = 2.

My wife's reaction was much worse as well, so make that N = 3.

I had a significantly worse reaction than SWMBO.

To the best of our knowledge, neither of us are pregnant.

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".

I had Pfizer shots on 19 February and 12 March. Minor injection site soreness for one day occurred both times. My wife is waiting for the Johnson & Johnson shot which is in short supply in northern California.

My mom (80) had her first BioNTech/Pfizer shot on Wednesday. Apart from feeling a bit tired - as she mostly does - she didn't mention any other side effects.

My dad has had both shots (PFizer) - and both times he had some soreness in the arm near the injection site but that was it. He was anticipating a reaction to the second shot because that had been what others had been reporting, but didn't have anything noticeable.

I'm now "elgible" in my area, but not able to schedule mine yet. Probably within a week or so, though.

My wife's reaction when I said I don't want to get the vaccine unless it is mandatory, was much worse either , so make that N=4 .
(edit: to make it clear, this is a joke, neither me nor my wife got the vaccine, but we have relatives who got it).

Joking apart, she really wants to go to Australia to visit our daughter, and I have a bad feeling I can't escape this time, if the traveling opens and the vaccine is required, I will have to get one. Any one, I don't really care. I don't believe that at my age, and without intention to have more children in the future, a vaccine can affect my future in any way... It is just the laziness, or the wish to keep the status quo. I also suspect it will not be cheap (for farangs living in Thai, these things are not free, they tend to cost a lot).

Got my vaccine (first shot) today!

@LaurV: You just spent $1700 on hardware but won't spring for a vaccine? Please reconsider - we need you here for the long haul!
