I feel unwell since I got the 2nd Pfizer shot. I thought that was normal as lots of people have experienced, but now a month after, I still feel unwell, it is more like a lupus fare than normal response to vaccine. Just my experience, everyone's rrsponse to the vaccine shot is different. Talk to your doctor to get a professional advice. Mine told me the risk of not getting vaccinated (ie Covid-19 infection) is far greater.

I have had all 3 shots.Pfizer.My arm was a little tender at the injection site. I took some Tylenol and it was gone. I have a long list of autoimmune disease along with sjogrens.I just wanted to do whatever I needed to provide and getting covid. I'm 63 and I take care of myself. So far so good. Good luck with your decision I know it's a hard one to make.
