Here is the more reasoned and medically-scientifically based explanations about 2nd dose of the vaccine.

Dang, I can even claim to be young that my body reacted badly on my 2nd dose.[emoticon]

2nd Dose why you feel lousy

2nd Dose why you feel lousy


And why those who have had Covid-19 feel lousy after just the 1st dose.

Had my initial dose of Pfizer's brew yesterday. Other than the cyclops growing out of my head I feel great.

Looking forward to the second dose on Easter; guess I'll see if I'm geezer enough for a side effect pass on the second dose. And, hats off to CVS, very well organized and executed operation they have.

It's good to be a geezer! My second shot of Moderna resulted in a slight fever, some achiness, and feeling tired the next day. Had I been younger, I certainly could have gone to work and functioned adequately - but since I too am a geezer, I indulged in a lovely couple of naps. Woke up the following day feeling bulletproof and frisky :-)

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

It’s not the number but the state of mind.

DW may disagree, but I look and feel I’m 27 so all my kids but one is older than me.

I generally consider geezer as eligible to receive social security (I do) and Medicare (I do), with an AARP membership thrown in for good measure. [emoticon]

Other than that age is a number.

Moderna's definition of geezer = 65 and older

Quote:

Efficacy and Safety of the mRNA-1273 SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine
N Engl J Med 2021; 384:403-416

Safety

Solicited adverse events at the injection site occurred more frequently in the mRNA-1273 group than in the placebo group after both the first dose (84.2%, vs. 19.8%) and the second dose (88.6%, vs. 18.8%) (Figure 2 and Tables S3 and S4). In the mRNA-1273 group, injection-site events were mainly grade 1 or 2 in severity and lasted a mean of 2.6 and 3.2 days after the first and second doses, respectively (Table S5). The most common injection-site event was pain after injection. Delayed injection-site reactions (those with onset on or after day 8) were noted in 244 participants (0.8%) after the first dose and in 68 participants (0.2%) after the second dose. Reactions were characterized by erythema, induration, and tenderness, and they resolved over the following 4 to 5 days. Solicited systemic adverse events occurred more often in the mRNA-1273 group than in the placebo group after both the first dose (54.9%, vs. 42.2%) and the second dose (79.4%, vs. 36.5%). The severity of the solicited systemic events increased after the second dose in the mRNA-1273 group, with an increase in proportions of grade 2 events (from 16.5% after the first dose to 38.1% after the second dose) and grade 3 events (from 2.9% to 15.8%). Solicited systemic adverse events in the mRNA-1273 group lasted a mean of 2.9 days and 3.1 days after the first and second doses, respectively (Table S5). Both solicited injection-site and systemic adverse events were more common among younger participants (18 to <65 years of age) than among older participants (65 years of age and older). Solicited adverse events were less common in participants who were positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection at baseline than in those who were negative at baseline (Tables S6 and S7).
