Hello, I had a year of misery with symptoms very similar to all of yours due to a rabies vaccine almost 10 years go. I have never been so miserable, and I vowed never to get a vaccine of any sort again. I had a rusty garden tool puncture (and after much research and learning that lockjaw has never happened in a case of anyone who has had even one tetanus shot) decided not to get a tetanus shot, I stopped getting flu shots, etc. I was VERY hesitant to get the covid vaccine but after learning I wouldn't be able to attend my daughter's college family weekend unless I got it, I decided to go for it. I'm now one month past the second shot and I have had some reactions, but they have been very mild. I had the typical few days of sickness following the shot (loss of appetite, fever) and have had VERY MILD tingling on my face since then. I feel nothing like I did after my rabies shot (extreme malaise, tingling throughout my entire left side, legs that felt like lead, etc). I was TERRIFIED of the Covid shot, but ultimately I'm glad I got it. I hope that helps a little bit.
Hi cathy54321! Do you remember me? Francy66 from Italy! I' m glad to read your question, you know, because back in 2009 I was so shocked by what happened to us that I swore never to have a flu vaccine again in my life! Now we have the Covid problem and here in my country vaccination will be soon compulsory for me if I don't want to lose my job...so, I really don't know what to do. I am scared. I know that Coriecl, another member of our 2009 forum, took both Covid vaccine shots in the past months and luckily nothing happened to her, no tingling side effects. Did you take any decision in the meantime? Let me know, I am really worried.
I was part of forum from 2009, I hope all is well with you. I don’t feel comfortable taking the Covid vaccine after what I’ve been through with the H1N1.
Let me know if you create a new forum.
