2ND Moderna Shot yesterday. Anyone get the number of that truck that hit me? [View all]

Was fine and celebrating yesterday afternoon. Now, it feels like I have got a case of the flu. Fever, chills, aches and pains, etc.

They say it goes away in a couple of days. They also say this is a good sign it's effective.

Despite all that, please get the shot.

No one likes a root canal, but the alternative is much worse.

I would, however, appreciate some Chicken Soup.
