My wife and I got our second Moderna shot about a week ago, administered by military personnel at a nearby convention center.  I had no reaction to the first shot, but my wife got "COVID arm" 10 days later - a big itchy red welt at the injection site.  About 5 weeks following the first, we got the second shot. Bam! two days later we were laid up with aches and chills, but that only lasted a day. After that, we felt great! It's a relief that we're immune, but still a drag thinking about following pandemic restrictions through the summer.

I too received my Moderna shots.  The second was a challenge in that I had chills so bad I felt like a paint shaker at a big box hardware store.  I too feel relief but there is still  a lot that is unknown, i.e. how long do the shots last?.  As for immune not sure I can buy into that since there are reports of some people coming down  with Covid 19 after receiving both shots.  There is still a lot that is unknown, but  1 or 2 shots are better than none.  Thanks to the VA for administering my shots.  Quite a professional operation. 

My wife didn't have any problems with our second shot, but I came down with joint and muscle aches for the next day and a half. All in all, not much worse than a Flu shot.

My wife and I have our 2nd shots a week from tomorrow, will let you know how it goes. For those that did have a reaction how long did it take to come on? I have a 2 hour drive to and from where we get the shot.

We got the 2nd shot mid-afternoon. I didn't have any real problems until I woke up the next morning.
