Vaccine - possible side effect

As expected, a few days later the symptoms started for both of us - runny nose, congestion, scratchy throat, feeling ran over and crappy - three days before we go on vacation. We were both a little pissed off over the bad timing and discussed cancelling the vacation. Next day the cold was full blown, but surprisingly by the end of the day the symptoms were easing. On the third day we both woke up and the symptoms were completely gone.

Not trying to draw any conclusions here, but we all know common colds last at least a full week, sometimes two weeks before all the symptoms are gone. Knowing the common cold is caused by a type of coronavirus, I looked it up and found a couple articles/mentions relating to the vax possibly providing some protection.

Vaccinated against Covid-19 AND a shorter-than-usual cold. Sounds okay to me.

You should really have a talk with the grandkid's parents and tell them that if they ever show up with the kids as sick as that again you're not going to open the door.

Also, when I get a cold it rarely lasts more than a few days, never a full week or two.

I had the J&J vaccine about 2 months ago. No negative side effects. I haven't had a cold since the lockdown and sometime before. Last week or so I felt a bit of a scratch in my throat and thought, "OK, here it comes" but the next day nothing. I can't say if that was the result of the vaccine or not because that isn't uncommon with me.

I've had both shots, no colds, no flu, no COVID (been there once before) and it's not without reason to believe COVID antibodies might help stave off or shorten cold symptoms. It is possible.

Alright, I'll respond to the OP about an experience I had eating a great sandwich the other day, since I guess we can ignore everything that came before the last 4 words.

I'm sure the OP can clarify, but my take is he wants positive and negative reactions to a cold after having the vaccine. If he only wants positive ones then what's the point?

PM me for details of my sandwich. It was a GREAT sandwich.
