    And so what if it was? MMR shots aren't 100% safe. Neither are Hep A or B. Nor are diphtheria, tetanus, or polio. None of the vaccines that most Americans get are 100% safe for 100% of people. People have bad reactions to all of them. It's part of medicine. It evens happens with OTC meds. People have reactions and are hospitalized and/or die. It's nothing new. And it's not out-of-the-ordinary.

    I got my 2nd vaccine 3 weeks ago.
    Then my car ran out of gas.
    Not saying it was the vaccine, but...

    If you were unable to get any side effects from the Corona vaccine I can recommend a Shingles shot, bugger that hurt for about a week:thumbd:

    In answer to the OP, I've had the usual slew of colds, just like I do every year, despite wearing a mask in public. I DO have an 8 year old child though, so am probably picking up stuff from her as I do every year.

    Covid-19 has the same spike protein as most cold virus'. It's possible that we may inadvertently while out the common cold on this one. Get your damn shots!

    I had a brain fog...I couldn't find my words, or I'd kinda trail off at the end of a word. It sucked.

    If the vaccine can protect from certain common cold viruses, that would be great news!
    Apparently though, there are hundreds of viruses that cause the common cold, so even of the sars cov2 vaccine helps against the common cold, it'll probably only help against a small number, unfortunately.

    I'm also hoping that all the cash they've invested into research and the new MRNA technology will lead to other good things in the future.

    I had my first shot on Tuesday just gone... and now I think I want to buy a Gibson.

    Apparently this uncomfortable feeling will pass.

    As long as you don't pick up banjo or bagpipes you'll be ok

    i am not a doctor IRL and this should not be taken as medical advice but --

    i do seem to recall reading something about the mRna vaccines which suggested that one possible knock-on effect of getting the shots would be an increased resistance to variants of the common cold.

    I can concur that effect. Got my second yesterday and I can't find anything clever to say about....
