Some people who were vaccinated had the same experiences as me, others lesser effects or nothing at all. It just seems to depend on the individual person.
First shot, I had no ill effects at all other than some pain around the injection site the following day.
Second shot (4 weeks later) the day of the shot I was fine again, but woke up feeling a bit rough the next day, and again sore at the injection site. As day 2 wore on, I began to exhibit flu-like symptoms - muscle aches, headache, chills and a 102F / 38.9C temperature.
By day 3, my temperature was on its way down and the chills and aches were subsiding, and by around 4:00 in the afternoon on day 3 I felt pretty much OK. When I woke up day 4 I felt completely normal.
So of you have the Moderna vaccine and experience these effects, don't worry - it's a fairly common response.
