You can’t choose which vaccine to receive but you can choose which CC to go to. In this sense, if you are insistent on receiving one over the other, you can choose to go to a CC which administers your vaccine of choice. Of course, I don’t recommend this, both vaccines are great and very effective.

PSA that getting vaccinated =/= you won’t get infected. In the event you get infected, the symptoms are reduced or you’re asymptomatic.

90-95% efficacy means you could be in the unlucky 5-10% that might experience moderate to severe symptoms.

True, but the risk is reduced by 90-95%, and thats good enough for me.

is that a trick question?

the tables have 3 columns: Name, Address, Vaccine Type

in case you are opening it in mobile phone, maybe you need to scroll a bit to right to see the last column.

I’m pretty sure they meant that the link shows which CC administers each vaccine. It just wasn’t written in proper English.

Looks like you can choose which vaccine to take as Moderna is now offered at 11 sites.

Pretty sure that is a spam or scam link, I dare not click it but I do know there is no need to “double confirm” your vaccine.

Got my 2nd shot last week, no major side effects if any to be honest. Felt a bit sleepy the following day afternoon, but to be honest could have been just been tired.

My helper also got her first shot last week.

Got my 2nd shot yesterday. 8 hours later it hit me pretty hard with fever and body aches. And the shoulder I got the shot in is noticeably more painful than what I experienced with the first shot. I'm still feeling pretty crap so heading back to bed now...

Sharing my Pfizer vaccination side effect day by day experience. I count Day 0 as the day I received the vaccine.

I am in the 20-30s age group and got the vaccine due to nature of work.

Dose 1 (0.3ml)

Day 0:
- Arm became sore in the evening.

Day 1:
- Arm was still sore.

- Fatigued, napped 3 times at my desk at work. Lucky my boss wasn’t around.

- Arm soreness subsided in the evening.

Day 2:
- No arm soreness and no fatigue.

- Colleague said I am way more alert and energetic compared to the previous day.

- - - - - -

Dose 2 is when your immune system gets a rude shock and you will feel the effects.

Dose 2 (also 0.3ml)

Day 0:
- Arm became sore in the evening.

Day 1:
- Have learned my lesson from the first dose and took leave.

- Arm became painful when I tried to sleep. Couldn’t sleep well because of the pain. Took Panadol which gave me 3 hours of sleep before the pain came back.

- Fatigued. Napped on and off.

- Low grade fever 24 hours after vaccination.

- Arm pain subsided into soreness in the evening.

Day 2:
- Arm flared up with pain again in the early morning.

- Ear on the same side as the injected arm began to ache.

- No more fever.

- Just a tiny bit tired but had enough energy to go out.

- Arm pain became arm soreness in the evening.

Day 3:
- Arm and ear still ached.

Day 4:
- Arm and ear only ached when I pressed on them but otherwise I do not notice the ache.

Day 5:
- Ear ache subsided.

- Arm only ached when I pressed on it but otherwise the discomfort is not noticeable.

Day 6
- Arm still ached faintly when I pressed it but not noticeable.

I guess I'm so old it didn't hit me as heavy.

What I find weird is the very slow reporting of vaccine stats from MOH. Even now the latest data is from 18 April for Singapore vaccination coverage. Can't see any point not to publish it really. Or publish it so slowly when the data should definitely be available.

My father (early 60s) received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine with no side effects. My mother (late 50s) got both doses of the Moderna vaccine. She experienced what she severe arm soreness for a couple of days, but no other serious side effects.

As mentioned above, got my 2nd Moderna shot on Sunday 2 May. Monday 3 May was a complete write off for me. Fever, aches, exhaustion, generally feeling pretty crap. Tuesday 4 May I felt much better, albeit a little tired. On the evening of the 4th, I started developing a rash on the arm I got the shot in. Today, 2 days, later it's still there although much smaller. Mildly aching arm for the first 3 days post shot.
