For those who’ve had both Pfizer shots, what was the gap between shots?

Wondering if the side effects for Shot 2 are worse if you get them close together, right on the 3 weeks, as opposed to spacing them out closer to 6 weeks.

AZ.
No side effects at all. Totally none.
Only had first dose so far.

I had no adverse reaction and I had my second shot at 42 days.

I've had x2 Pfizer jabs and as others have said, first one no problems apart from slightly sore arm in the evening and next day. Second one affected me for 3-4 days. Felt hot (temp was Ok though), tight gripping headache, nausea, fatigue and generally hung over feeling. Having said that, it appears that I was the only one in my work group of 10 or so who did have any side effects.

Mrs TS has had the first one this week with no problems, will see how the second one goes in a couple of weeks or so.

Not in my case. I had my second Pfizer shot exactly 3 weeks (almost to the minute) after the first. I had absolutely no side effects after the second jab.

The adults on both sides of my family have been vaccinated. Most people had no side effects. I only know one person who had fever-like symptoms for about 24 hours, then bounced back to normal. None of the doomsday predictions by the anti-covid vaccine crowd have happened.

2 x Pfizer. 3 weeks apart. Absolutely no reaction to first shot. The second: nothing immediately. The day after, a slightly sore arm in vicinity of jab site for a few hours after waking, nothing by end of day.

I'm in OZ, in my mid 80s & a type 2 diabetic. I have to have the AZ vaccination, no option.
Has anyone in my age & condition had the AZ & if so what side effects if any.
Cheers

No Covid shot yet but my arm sure as hell hurts where I got my flu shot 18 hours ago.

AZ (1st dose) - had really bad fever and chills the night of the shot, however no issues after 24 hours other than a sore arm for a couple of days. 2nd dose is due in about 5 weeks

My father who is in his 70s had the AZ about 2 weeks after me with no side-effects.

Pfizer both shots. 21 days apart.
Sore upper arm on both. That said no more so than any other intra muscular shot that I’ve had in the past. Second shot lump in the armpit for a day or so. Other than that, nothing. Colleagues, and SWMBO, had the usual slight fever sensations, and general feeling of malaise, for 24 hours or so, then fine.
Here we have a 48 hour requirement before back to flying etc. Seems like a reasonable idea.
Certainly less reaction than the TABT shots as a kid, or the yellow fever shots that I’ve had in the past.
Can’t speak to the AZ shots directly. Although I’ve heard no negative feedback from those that have had it.

Really? Both of you guys knew personally a 1:200,000 incidence of complications? Huh.

Both my spouse and myself have had dose 1 of Astra Zeneca. Neither of us have had any side effects. Just a tiny bit of soreness at the injection site. Less than most flu shots I've had.

I had the AZ jab and I needed those 48 hours off. I had Covid a year ago, so did Checkboard, although, we experienced different symptoms.
About 7-8 hours after the jab, the chills kicked in, then felt hot, this cycled all the way through the night plus felt nauseous too. By morning, that had gone away but was left with a headache that wouldn't budge and fatigue that didn't let up until the evening. Headache finally went away. The next day, just very tired. Slight tenderness under the arm, jab site, fine.
Checkboard (who is long covid with altered sense of smell and taste), very mild chills and fever but had bad joint/back pain for about a day.

Can't wait for the second one... It should be better...
I had exactly the same symptoms as you Redsnail. Was a little worried at the time as I've never had side-effects to anything before.... also I think the nurse doing the jab could've explained a bit more about possible side effects and likelihood of them. It was very much a production line for getting the jab, literally didn't even sit down - it was queue up, confirm name and date of birth, jab, on your way....

However... do I think it was worth having? YES! Will I go for the second one? YES!

Good luck to all
