I’ve seen a few different things, some suggesting it’s quicker (5-7 days), others saying it’s 10-12, up to 14 days.

Unfortunately, if you use the 14 day metric, it means the large uptick in booster shots this week will kick in… shortly after Christmas and New Years.

I quickly felt worse and worse through the evening after my booster and had a small seizure around 9 pm. Full body pain and high fever continues but both are slowly coming down so I'm staying home for now. I have help here.

3rd dose of moderna. My clinic recommended a full dose for the booster as it provides better immunization.

It's kicking my ass. Got it at 530 pm, arm pain was quite bad within 2 hours, pretty bad shakes after 4 hours (until I got under a blanket). I'm burning up right now and can't sleep, but the shakes are gone. Hoping that I feel better in the morning.

Wow is my arm sore. I got my shot yesterday afternoon, the shot itself didn't hurt at all but my arm at the injection site is red, swollen, bruised and sore as hell this morning.

My full dose Moderna kicked my ass. I was all kinds of sore in the evening, woke up numerous times through the night and woke up with my heart ####ing pounding. Not fast, just heavy. Felt like I was gonna have an alien chest burster at any moment. Then alternated between overheating and chills from 6-8am or so.

I’m feeling back to normal now though. Other than the sore arm but I got that last time too.

So, some people are getting a full dose of Moderna while others are getting a half dose? Doesn't seem super fair if the full dose is supposed to be better.

I needed a full dose to be considered fully vaxxed in certain countries. It should be an option for anyone who had an Astra/mRNA mix.

Happened to me earlier this week, and hearing about this lots. Seems like AHS / government dropping the ball once again.

Just got boosted with Pfizer. In talking with the pharmacist she said that they are canceling appointments next week as there is no Pfizer shipment.

That took about 24 hours to clear for me, 48 hours later and its back to 90%. They weren't lying when I read somewhere that dose 3 is a shock to your immune system.

Boosted with Moderna 50mcg. Mentioned that I am on TNF blockers to the pharmacist and he didn’t think it was necessary to do a full 100mcg of Moderna for a booster.

Now Pfizer - Pfizer - Moderna’d. Cancelled my January 3rd at the MRU pharmacy which was going to be another Pfizer.

Also I don’t know if this is the right spot although those looking for at home tests some pharmacies are getting shipments today at 11.

I’m at a pharmacy at canyon meadows and grabbed two but I think she said they have 4 left.

Yikes. I'm glad you have someone there to help out. Bit scary.

My son was booked for his booster today at a pharmacy in the NE. He got there 5 minutes before his appointment and there was a huge line. He waited 45 minutes and the only movement in the line were people who were giving up. He also wasn't dressed for an extended wait outside so he also bailed at the 45 minute mark. The last thing we need is for him to get sick from being outside in the cold.

Was able to snag a spot next week at an AHS site. Hopefully that's better.

I'm not sure which is worse- Minnie's situation where they get cancelled; or having to wait outside for so long that you are forced to give up.

I waited outside for about 40 minutes yesterday. The line up was huge at the tiny little pharmacy I was booked at. Thankfully the weather was much better than today. I probably would have bailed if it was like today.

I wonder how much is has to do with whether you’ve been to the pharmacy before or not. We were on time for ours and only a couple of people there but it took about 30 minutes for them to enter our info into their system and stuff before we got our shots, at which point it was smooth sailing. It didn’t seem like the best process of having people fill out extra paperwork at the pharmarcy that AHS already has or could have been transmitted along when the appointment was made online.

Officially triple Pfizer’d. It was a complete cluster at our small town pharmacy. Sounds like they have no clue when they will get their next Pfizer shipments, so will be cancelling appointments next week.
