“I got the Moderna vaccine – this is how I felt”

Updated: April 13th, 2021

This is how I feel about the COVID-19 vaccine. I personally got Moderna and I got sick for one day but after that I was perfectly fine. I’m so glad I got the vaccine so I can help my community and the world to get back to our normal. I got the vaccine to help protect my grandparents and my family and friends. I think everyone should get the vaccine so we can help stop the spread of COVID-19. I trust science so I believe this Covid vaccine is perfectly safe. This time we are in is absolutely scary.

Only have gotten the first dose of Moderna so far. Arm was VERY sore for several days. I had COVID-19 not too long before being able to get the shot, so some of my symptoms returned for a day or two. This is NOT the normal first-dose response, it's just because I had been sick so recently and still hadn't (and still haven't!!) recovered from some longer-term symptoms. I'd do absolutely ANYTHING to not get COVID again, as even though I'm a healthy, active 22 year old, it completely took me out of commission for weeks. I get my second dose on April 23 and I can't wait!!
