Subgroups who should avoid this vaccine:
Those with severe allergic reactions, as they are more prone to severe allergic reactions. Or known allergic reactions to components of the vaccine.

This is me. I have no known allergies to the components of the vaccine, but I have a history of severe allergic reactions.

I still want the vaccine since I'm also high risk and I'd rather have the protection of the vaccine, but I'm waiting on more information to see if there's one vaccine or another that would be theoretically safer for me.

Having said that, I won't be in the pool for getting a vaccine for several more months anyway, so I have some time.

As far as I know, all of the vaccines are drive up here in Arizona, but we have the weather for them.  You drive around a maze in the parking lot going through the important questions, checking IDs, getting the shots, and at the end you wait 15 minutes after you got the shot to see if there are any series side effects. 
Time for a change.  I am yungmom, but have wanted a new username for some time.

I took my dad (75 years old) to get the Moderna vaccine today. After some reluctance he decided to do it. He was quite pleased with the whole drive through process. It was very efficient. I took him home and stayed with him for 3 hours. No issues so far. Late tonight or tomorrow will be the biggest chance for side effects or complications. We will see.

I wonder if his experience will convince his brother to get the vaccine. His brother is a little deeper on the conspiracy side of vaccines.

I was able to get my vaccine a little early (since I'm a community-based mental health worker) and fairly easily (since most of my state is far-right, anti-vaccine), but the first dose made me sick as a DOG. I don't think this would happen to everyone, and I skipped a lot of the common side-effects like headaches or even a sore arm. I just so happen to have a very scarred gut that did NOT like the vaccine and protested HARD for about 4 days straight.

I'm still getting the 2nd vaccine at my scheduled time if possible.

And I'm still glad I'm getting it.

My sister and her husband had the same reaction as Dyany. They were sick for 5 days. The second shot was much easier, just sore arms.

Sorry you had such a bad reaction, Dyany. Kudos for still having a good attitude and for planning to get the second shot, even though the first was so miserable.

I have a hypothesis that a percentage of those who are having rough reactions to the first vaccine dose might have had a previous, asymptomatic encounter with the virus, so that the first dose is acting more like a second dose.

Or it could just be their immune system.

------------------------

26 hours out from his first dose. and my dad has had no symptoms. No fever, chills, malaise. Not even a sore shoulder. It is going well.

I've wondered about that. Early on, I had a strange illness that made one lung burn for a couple of weeks. Maybe fatigue too, but it's hard to say because I have narcolepsy and I'm always tired.

Anyway, I had more effects from the first vaccine than my coworkers, and the other 2 that had side effects had proven COVID last year. My second dose is on Wednesday and I'm curious to see how I do.

Could be either with me. I had a surgery at a craptastic local hospital literally 2 days before lockdown in mid-March and came down with something that had me sick as a dog for over a month.

But I also have a spectacularly messed up system, including immune system, gut scarring, inflammation issues, asthma, scarred lungs, etc.

I personally lean towards the bad reaction with my body more than the idea that I caught it in March. I have way too many of the high risk factors--including asthma, scarred lungs, diabetes, obesity, pre-existing gut issues, etc.--for me to have gotten off with almost none of the standard symptoms (nothing like bronchitis or worse, no loss of taste or smell, no gut issues, etc.) while still being REALLY sick, for it to be COVID, in my opinion. It was too early in the pandemic for there to be testing available in our area, so we'll never know for sure.

My daughter, twenty, only medical issue is an under-active thyroid, had no symptoms at all - she had the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

She had previously tested positive for the virus, but again with no symptoms.

My doctor told me not to get either of the two vaccines out now in the US, but that Johnson & Johnson is releasing another in March.  Since it is using a different process, it should be fine.

Second dose was kind of rough. Fever hit about 12 hours after the shot, and for 24 hours after that I had the worst body aches I can remember along with the fever and nausea. By 48 hours I felt pretty good, though.

You can read up what is different about this one here - https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/health/johnson-johnson-covid-19-vaccine.html

Interesting.
