I had a bad experience with both the first and second Pfizer shots, and have opted not to get a booster for now. After the first I had mild symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis (a pre-existing condition), but I was able to ward them off after about a week. The day after the second shot is when I started having severe anxiety, which is what landed me in my current predicament of needing psych meds. While I cannot prove the vaccine was responsible, the timing is pretty suspicious.
So, it may not be all in your head. I opted to get both shots because I want to be a responsible citizen but am scared that my particular physical constitution may not handle a third shot well. To avoid getting sick, I mask up still when I leave the house, even though nobody is required to mask here in NYC anymore.
