Please check with your doctor and make sure your reaction is normal.
Especially if they are giving you a second vac.
My first pneumonia vac was not too bad but my second one caused my immune system to react badly. 24 hrs later my previously injured knee was swollen twice it's size. For months joint after joint became painful, hair loss, aches etc.
I reported it to the vac. reporting system and found very few people have any reaction. But I was one of the blessed. You are likely just fine to go, but please check with your dr.

I work for an awesome company. They have been providing the vaccine to everyone and their spouse. I don't know where or how they have been getting the vaccine but they have had enough for everyone that wanted it. I get my second dose in a week or two. The lump in the arm and extreme soreness is so common as to be expected. Interestingly, every single man here got flu like symptoms for 48 hours in addition to the sore arm. Most of the women had the sore arm but not one of us had the flu like symptoms. Weird.

Interesting, I had extreme soreness and lump at the shot location for about a week, but never got the flu like symptoms. Pharmacist said that if you didn't have a reaction to the first shot you probably would not have a problem with the second shot except for the soreness.
