My only reaction to the 3rd Pfizer dose was extreme sleepiness. I slept for about 12 hours. That was it.

I was just trying to schedule mine between work and medical appointments. I may feel crappy enough after some of these procedures; I don't want to go in feeling sick.

Yep that was mine to the booster too.
Got the Shingles shots in January, the 2nd one there knocked me in the dirt.
Got the 10 year booster for tetnis/whooping cough/whatever else they could pack in, (the alphabet soup one) soar arm was about it there.
Plan is to get the flu shot next week, and that is enough.

Starting to feel like a dartboard.

So I seem to be having a little reaction to the shot. Woke up at 5:00 AM and I was nauseous, had some tea and little English muffin. That didn't stay down, still feeling uncomfortable and I was wondering does anyone know how long this will last? I have some appointments today and I don't want to reschedule.
Thanks

Like @Daniel I had to get out yesterday because of the changing weather.
Back to the Henry Jackson Wilderness. My goal is the peak in the upper right.

If it’s anything like the other two, everyone’s different. :-(

Take some Pepto?
The nauseousness has passed but it gave way to bad headache. Someone mentioned that you should not take OTC pain medicine for the shot I don't remember if it was Advil, Tylenol or something else. Anyone know anything about this?

The warning was not to take it prophylactically. After, I believe, is fine.

We were told just the opposite, and to drink more (he meant water damn it).

Yes. It’s fine to take either one afterwards. Just not before.
