I got my second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine last Thursday night. I ended up feeling a lot of the same symptoms as the first dose, but more intensely.
The aches were a little more pronounced. Thursday night I slept horribly.
Friday I experienced chills, a different experience from the first dose. Took a hot bath. Took a couple of naps with a space heater nearby and under a couple of blankets. As a result of trying to keep my body warm, my Fitbit reported that I burned as many calories as I would on a day of jogging 25-30 minutes on the treadmill. Very interesting.
Even with my Friday naps, I slept really well that night.
Saturday morning, outside of a slightly tender injection site, I felt so much better.
So glad to be on the other side of this.
Two weeks, and I’ll have full immunity.
