Our experience with 2nd Moderna vaccine (6 month old)

She got it yesterday at 3pm. Went ok, she cried for about a minute. Nothing new she has cried with other vaccines as well. She was fine the rest of the afternoon. Very energetic. We joked they gave her a shot of red bull instead. We did a temp check at 11pm & she had no fever. This morning she has been her usual self. I did a temp check and she has a slight fever of 100.4. Shes so energetic. I did not think she was going to have a fever at all. Shes doing great!

UPDATE Had given tylenol at 100.4 fever in the morning yesterday. It went away. She was in great spirits all day. Checked for fever throughout the day. She had a slight fever of 100.2 at 7pm. We gave her tylenol. At 11pm I checked for fever and she had none. However she seemed pretty fussy if she was touched or if she moved. Im assuming body aches. I gave her tylenol again since itd been 4 hours. Its now the next day (day 2 after vaccine). She woke up with no fever after 7 hours of no tylenol. She seems to be pretty happy today.

Can someone in here point me towards data supporting child vaccinations for covid. The risk vs benefits etc. I have not got my 4 y/O cov vacc'd and there is nothing really out there to convince me either.

Seems to be mostly risk and not much reward to me.

Thank you for sharing your experience! My nine-month-old gets his second Moderna on Tuesday. He didn’t react to the first one, but we’ll see for the second one.

4.5 year old had his 2nd Moderna day prior. Complained of injection site pain. He seemed fine all afternoon, we went for a trail walk and his first ever movie theater experience. Slept that night same as usual and woke up extra early (like normal on a "day off" lol...).

As far as we know he hasn't had Covid yet. He's been PCR tested so many times due to child care exposure but they've all been negative. Fingers crossed we make it to the two week finish line.

My I ask, did she ever have covid (via the virus infection)?

(Sorry to be so direct. I ask because my 3 yr old had it mid May and she’s due for her 1st moderna shot next week. I think it’s been long enough since the infection but i’m still nervous. That’s why I ask this question)

In case this helps ease your concerns - my 2y/o got covid for the first time between the first and second shots. His pediatrician recommended keeping the 2nd shot appointment rather than delaying. His reaction to the shot yesterday was very similar to OP’s daughter. Low fever this morning but normal energy. I hope all goes well for you!

Thankfully not. I think you have to be 10 days past infection to be fine and able to get vaccinated.

My almost 4 year old had the exact same reaction as his dad to the second dose of moderna almost down to the minute. Vaccine at 4. Nothing out of the ordinary. Violent throwing up for a half hour at midnight. Violent shakes, burning up to the touch; low grade fever for the rest of the night into mid morning. Easing off into lethargy by 11 am. Perfectly back to normal by 4pm. Ymmv.

Violent throwing up and shakes?!? I’d freak out …

Amazing that you worked through that.

While this is great, it's anecdotal and a single data point. Good news for sure but not exactly "science based". Would be better to hear results of a scientific study.

They posted it was their experience and it’s flaired as general discussion. Why complain?

My daughter was part of the kidcove Moderna study. The most common side effects reported were injection site pain, fatigue and fever. No major adverse effects were reported.

Our almost 3 y/o got her second dose of moderna on thursday. She must have gotten lucky because she didn’t have a single symptom either time…not even so much as soreness at the injection site. They wiped me out every time so I have to say I’m a little jealous haha.

Same for our 3 year old with Moderna. Not a lick of symptoms for either shot. Not even a sore arm was the kicker for me because I remember my arm being so fucking sore.

What did get tho was a very cranky/temperamental kid for 24 ish hours.

2yo was cranky but that's it for the first dose.
