Have many people received the J & J covid vaccine ? Is it better than the Pfizer ?
My husband received the J&J he was down for about 2 days with a headache and feeling icky. I had the Pfizer 1st shot I ran errands afterwards, the 2nd shot I had a terrible migraine and my already high blood pressure went sky high.
Since then no issues!
I had the Moderna full series then just got a Pfizer booster. I know someone who had JJ and also got the Pfizer booster. No issues.
My husband had the J& J in probably March or April. He had no issues. I had the Pfizer just in the last couple of months. No issue with the first dose, the second left me a little achy and tired for 2 days. Otherwise, no issues.
We're not taking any of the shots-
I had pfizer, no problems. Hubby had moderna , no problems.
We have had all three shots of the Moderna and no significant problems. I was a little tired after the second dose. IF you are given a choice, I would get the Phizer or Moderna....both have eficacy of over 90% whereas the J & J in in the 66%+ range.
I would really like to know exactly which vaccine those who have contracted the virus after vaccination had taken. I would bet it was the J & J.

From what I have read, it's all 3 vaccines. I know it doesn't matter which one you took when it comes to vaccine injury. The poor people I follow report vaccines from each brand. The severity of the vac injury does not seem to depend on any one in particular.

I am RN, so far everyone i know who has had covid and has been vacciated has had the moderna or pfizer.
My Dr friend says Moderna or Pfizer, not j and j.
My 81 year old mom had two Moderna shots then had a relatively mild case of Covid .
I got the j&j not quite 2 weeks ago, and only cuz it was the last day I could to keep my job. I didn't have any negative effects,...,.. yet. I also have not had covid, I don't really get sick. I chose the j&j cuz it was a one and done. I do know of another girl that got the j&j the week before I did and she had a few days of bad flu like symtoms but she is good to go now.
Last week I did. Sore arm, felt fine and went about my day (riding, errands) started to feel achy in the evening. Terrible aches over night and the hot/cold. Took a few advil and it improved.
Hubby got J&J in April. He got chills for the first 24 hours. Then he had a mild headache, tired, and brain fog for about 3 days. He recently got the Pfizer booster and had no issue other than a mildly sore arm.
I had Pfizer for my first two doses with no issue other than a mildy sore arm and a headache for 1 day with the 2nd shot. I will also get Pfizer for my booster once it's due.
Covid is such a crap shoot, I've known some who by all reports should have gotten very ill, breeze right through. I've known others who were not at all high-risk, die within 4 days of diagnosis. A friend I grew up with died 3 weeks ago. He was not vaccinated (and I personally feel that was his choice to make. His body, his choice).
Nope, a vaccine isn't going to totally prevent you from getting covid.... but it does increase your chances of surviving it if you're one of the ones who may not have.
Early treatment helps. Not taking any vaccine. I already had Covid
