Pfizer has fewer side effects.
That's what I've gathered from here, too, but didn't see cold, hard numbers. In any case, they only gave Moderna here.

I am guessing that I'll take that sometime in the summer (unless things change and I'll be able to have the same type of access I have now based on antibody tests).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not a huge difference then. Doesn't seem like it's worth it to go out of my way to get the Pfizer vaccine unless it's readily available in my area.

fever: 8.2% vs 5.8%, chills 8.4% vs. 5.5%. 

30-40% more...

And Pfizer has a week less wait time in between doses.

Still less than 10% of people have reported side effects.

I didn't have a fever or chills, but I had other side effects.

So BH I'm feeling fine besides for a little soreness on that arm and slight lightheadedness, the same with 2 of my colleagues who also took it yesterday, but my DW is feeling very lousy. Fever, chills, etc.

Did you yelp when they gave you the shot?
I'm not who you think I am.

Nah, I only made my handle "yelped" because it was a big deal when I actually yelped once 20 years ago.  :P

Ineresting, side effects are worse for women.

My wife got the first Moderna shot yesterday, she has 102 fever the whole day and is vomiting, she never had COVID symptoms, but tested positive for antibodies after Sukkos (tested negative for antibodies after Pesach).

Does anyone know if she should expect such a strong reaction if she takes a second dose?
2nd shot appointment is today, does anyone know if someone who had antibodies before shot 1, and had very bad side effects, will get bad side effects on shot 2?


The reason why she’d do shot 2 is just in case schools make a rule that you need vax id, she doesn’t want to do 2 more.
