The Antigen rapid swab test you linked is not available for sale nor use in the US. Where did you get it?
Not sue either but it was edited 5 days after OP to add that link.

My wife and I went today and got our first shot in the Pfizer Moderna Vaccine. My wife was scared but it was not bad. We had fun with the gentleman in front of us who was 100. I hope I move like him at that age.
You sit 15 minutes after being injected to make sure no bad effect. We spent the day asking each other how we felt.
We will get second dose February1. They list a site on pamphlet where you can go for help.

She is 69 and I am 70

10 hours later my shoulder is a little sore at injection point but that has been all.

I mean it has to be one way or another. I had my grandmother in the hospital for 3 weeks, and it was a painful situation for everyone in the family. I know it's early but not everyone can handle this virus so the vaccine is our way out.
I'm hoping with you that this vaccine stops this virus.

My wife had the first round of the Pfizer vaccine a few weeks ago on the first day it was available. I took the first round of the Moderna last Thursday when they started phase 2 for EMS workers. She was sore at the site for a couple of days, I was as well for a day. No issues for either of us. I tested positive for antibodies a few weeks ago when donating platelets, so I guess I'd already had it but wasn't aware of it.

I thought the Maderna shot only took one injection?

I got the first shot this morning (Moderna). Go back in 28 days for #2. They must be using a really fine needle, 'cause I wasn't even sure she really stuck me.
My wife had her first one last Monday. All she had was a sore arm for a day or two. As difficult as it was to get an appointment, I was surprised at how well and how quickly things moved. I waited maybe 5 to 10 minutes from the time I walked in until I'd gotten the shot. Hung out for fifteen minutes, and I was home less than an hour from the time I headed out.

Got my first Modura today. Zero reaction so far. Wife has a little soreness in her arm.

I got mine.

Listed side effects.

Pain and swelling at injection site. Yep had those, but then that is the same side effects for just about every shot I ever had.

Mild headache, low grade fever. Yep had those yesterday for about 4 hours. Per instructions took one one acetaminophen and they went away.

I read this NPR post. Seems reasonable. So much that is posted doesn't pass the smell test this does-makes sense:

I need to go to the dentist and the hearing aid specialist. When I make the appointments, I will ask if everyone in the office has had their shoot and are they wearing their masks? No to either question and I will delay appoint until they do.

My arm is sore where I got the injection. That’s the only symptom so far.

Wifey & I got our shots a week ago, the Maderna brand. Our shoulders were sore, but that was about it. Was told by our doctor that the second shot is the butt kicker. Said to stock up on Gatorade, popsicles and take Tylenol before and after the shot and stay in bed for 2 days. We got our shots in Shawnee and 3 days later to my mother to OKC where she got the Pfizer shot. She's 87 and said her arm didn't even hurt.

That’s not good. My arm is still hurting after several days. I was kind of lethargic for a couple days afterwards like after taking a flu shot which does the same thing to me.
I was hoping the second dose would be less eventful.

I had no reaction to either 1st or 2nd dose. But, I don't normally react to such things.

Now I did make the pharmacist laugh when I asked what super powers were possible side effects.

Wife(RN) got her second shot last week and it kicked her butt - didn't get out of bed the entire next day. Felt aches and pains like flu but only lasted 24 hrs. Next day she was pretty much back to normal(as much as expected)! I'm not sure which version she got at the hospital. i'll take once those who need it more get theirs. I work from home so in contact with very few people unless I go to the store then I mask up.

What really puzzles me is why retail stores won't block people from entering who don't have a mask on, stop people in the store who don't have a mask on or aren't wearing correctly, refuse service to any who don't comply. Okay, I know the almighty dollar speaks louder than people's lives but until we take the bull by the horns, this is going to be a very long pandemic!

This is where folks get into the freedom and "I can't breath" aspect of the mask debate. I did hear that some bigwig is now recommending wearing two masks.
