I was on this board 21 years ago when I was first diagnosed. I am a 21 year survivor and just received my second Covid shot. Wondering if anyone else are in a similar situation. I had concerns about getting it. I waited and just got my second shot Monday. I have gotten what they call Covid arm. A red itchy big rash at the injection site. I also have a stiff neck which Im wondering could be swollen lymph nodes. I am still not 100% and its been 4 days. Any others have any issues after getting the shot?

    Lymph nodes

    if you had any lymp nodes removed you should not receive injections  or have your blood pressure taken in that arm.  I’m sure you will be fine in a few days.  Congratulations on getting the vaccIne!

    Covid shot

    I got my 2nd Covid shot while in active chemo treatment for breast cancer. It knocked me down for a few days, fever, aches, and flu symptoms. However, I recovered and glad I got the shot. I hope you are feeling better!

    I got my fourth COVID shot after I finished chemo. A little sore arm, but nothing else. I think a rash at the site may be common but you should report it to your dr. Hope you get over it just fine!
