The COVID Vaccine Side Effect Lottery

I got the first dose of the Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday, April 20. I was very pleased to be able to get it as quickly as I did (I was anticipating well into May).

I got my usual vaccine arm soreness, 48 hours of it. I get that with every vaccine so I’m pretty sure it’s a reaction to the needle.
