I received my first COVID vaccine (the first of two Pfizer vaccines) on Thursday, 1/21/2021.
Here's a quote from a Google search on what the potential side effects are:
"The most commonly reported side effects, which typically lasted several days, were pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, joint pain, and fever. Of note, more people experienced these side effects after the second dose than after the first dose, so it is important for vaccination providers and recipients to expect that there may be some side effects after either dose, but even more so after the second dose."
Within 3 hours after receiving the first dose, my blood pressure spiked to 158/95. My normal BP is 117/74. I called my doctor who said it was only a result of my anxiety and worry over getting the vaccine, and "he wasn't concerned". Really?! Since, then my BP has more-or-less stabilized.
However, within the last couple of days, the middle joint on one of my fingers has become painful. I do NOT have symptomatic osteoarthritis (I'm 65). I regularly use turmeric/OVCO/pepper and eat relatively healthfully.
I confirmed with my functional medicine practitioner that the BP spike is definitely a side effect of the vaccine. It has been reported by vaccine recipients, but this side effect has NOT been shared with the public!
If anyone has any adverse side effects from any of the COVID vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna...at least for now, until new brands are released), you can report these side effects using a link on the CDC website. Here's the CDC site that addresses "Clinical Considerations".
Here's the direct link to report adverse side effects: https://vaers.hhs.gov/. VAERS = Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
For now, I'm treating my painful finger joint with soaking in Epsom Salts, drinking lots of my turmeric/OVCO/pepper concoctions, and making sure I eliminate any/all forms of sugar from my diet. And, of course, hoping it goes away!
Any other suggestions, please share :-)

I happened across this article about a delayed reaction from the Covid shot. A number of people experience a significant rash on the arm with other symptoms 8 days from the first vaccination.
Just something to be aware of.
The author also experienced a swollen lymph node. I wonder if stepping up one's immune preventatives (vitamin c, etc) in the weeks following vaccination would be helpful?

Thank you to Sherri from MOi, for posting the link on EC to Dr. Mercola's article. Definitely worth reading.
Here's a summary of key points from the top of the article, so people can decide if they want to read it.
- By referring to COVID-19 vaccines as “vaccines” rather than gene therapies, the U.S. government is violating its 15 U.S. Code Section 41, which regulates deceptive practices in medical claims
- The mRNA injections are gene therapies that do not fulfill a single criteria or definition of a vaccine
- COVID-19 “vaccines” do not impart immunity or inhibit transmissibility of the disease. They only are designed to lessen your infection symptoms if or when you get infected. As such, these products do not meet the legal or medical definition of a vaccine
- Since a vast majority of people who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 have no symptoms at all, they've not even been able to establish a causal link between the virus and the clinical disease
- By calling this experimental gene therapy technology a “vaccine, ” they are circumventing liability for damages that would otherwise apply
If we are mandated to take the vaccine for Corona Virus and want to detox our body from all the bad chemicals. What do you recommend?
We were told about Diatomaceous Earth Powder and Activated Charcoal.
If so, does anyone have the protocols for this type of cleansing?
Had first moderna Monday the 25, husband had mild aches for one day...I had flu symptoms - low grade fever, aches, but worse was the feeling that I was getting a UTI ...very low down pain over bladder, low low back pain, stomach cramping, can pass gas but only tiny stool one day...and I am always regular daily...went to dr to rule out UTI...don't know till Monday...went to chiropractor today...still periodic cramping..not BM..drinking prune, calm, lemon juice, ate a pear...lots of water...now have headache...Any suggestions on the constipation? (again, I am rarely constipated if at all). Still feeling foggy headed and sluggish...this is the weirdest crap...
I do not want to get the second dose..Am a nurse and even took the ‘pandemic certification for health care professionals'...I wasn't going to do it but was pressured by my husband...All of the employees at dr office just had their second dose and hit brick walls - including the dr who said he wasn't going to do it either...I wonder is the second ‘booster different? Or just another dose same as the first? I think one bout of this virus is enough!
Another thing the lymphatic system is reported to do is "train" t-cells to recognize what is and isn't you via MHC molecules so, it occurs to me that "genetic" vaccines may be flushed out by the activation of the lymphatic system, with - you guessed it - rebounding. What's you is good and stays, what isn't you is identified, and gets flushed out.
Rebounding increases both white blood cells and the physical act of flushing out the "bad guys" they find so...shouldn't that include vaccines? And whatever foreign genetic material they may contain, in particular? I don't know but it seems to me it would be something one would want to include in detoxing after a vaccine, since it pumps the system designed to take care of such business.
