Still no shot here in the Netherlands, but we have of course the worst minister for health in the universe. It's only now that at 52 I'm finally eligible to get the vaccine. I have an appointment for over 2 weeks time. Probably Pfizer or Moderna, as Astrazenica has been restricted to 60+ only. Some age groups are getting Jansen, if you're born in 1967 to 1968.

Any experts correct me here (and there are a lot on this forum) but I think that's the worry with younger kids is that their immune systems are so on point that the symptoms might be rather severe.  My mom (in her 80's) had just a minor sore arm.  I (in my 60's) had pretty minor reaction for 24 hours.  When I had Covid I had what I'd consider minor symptoms as well.
My 17 year old got his second Pfizer shot in early May and his symptoms were about the same as mine - feeling pretty bleh the next day with a low fever and soreness.   That went away by late afternoon the day after the shot and nothing since then.   My 14 & 15 year olds get their second jab of Pfizer next week but I suspect they will have very similar side effects.

Got Pfizered about 90 minutes ago, can't really lift my arm, my back aches and I feel a little out of it and I couldn't be happier.

Congrats! I got both rounds of Moderna and just had the arm soreness and a low fever on the second one.

My Daughter falls in the "high risk" category, My wife and I decided not to tell her that we all somehow managed to contract it, but she didn't even notice.
Didn't feel well for a day and fine after, We weren't exactly worried though and the reason we decided not to disclose to her is the same most governments regret making this out to be way worse than it was, she would have went into extreme panic mode.

Just what I saw happen, I don't know if others children would experience something worse.

Got Pfizered about 90 minutes ago, can't really lift my arm, my back aches and I feel a little out of it and I couldn't be happier.
I got the 'derna, and had the same thing with the arm. It felt super heavy for half a day. Then a little malaise and all good.

It wasn't heavy as such (apart from maybe the first six hours when I was still a bit dazed) just any movement 'the wrong way' felt like tearing every muscle in it, nearly back to normal this morning though... unless I poke it.

A day and a half with only one arm working and sleeping on my right side was worth a little avoiding a potentially horrible death.

Got my first shot of Pfizer last saturday, gave a zumba class the next morning. Only thing I noticed was like somebody punched my left arm.

I did get some further effects (although as forum age goes, I'm on the lower end which seems to impact reaction severity) the Saturday gave me a very bad 2 hour dizzy spell and some minor heart fluttering through Monday and then a 103/72 blood pressure drop on the one week anniversary, which took it out of me for a couple of days, but totally back to normal now and I've just done several days strenuous work.

A friend of my mum's, son, apparently had heart fluttering too and was understandably quite panicked so a potential side effect to be aware of, although I feel I should say, be sure to follow up with your medical practitioner.

I didn't know the vaccines doses could be mixed like that.

Pretty common here, maybe even the norm.

Today's paper said that because Pfizer is the only one approved for 12 - 17 year olds, at least locally Pfizer shots are only going to that age group.
