I and my wife are in USA. I am 76 and my wife is 68. I am a hypertensive on treatment and taking thyroxin for hypothyroidism. My wife is a mild diabetic and mild hypertensive.
On February 4, I had my first dose of Moderna vaccine. There were absolutely no issues except a slight pain at the site of injection. But my controlled BP of 125/85 went up to 140/95. My wife had her 1st dose Moderna vaccine on 12th FEB. She had no problems at all. But after fifteen days, her BP reading was 190/100. She is also a COPD patient on inhalation treatment with CPAP at night. Her oxygen concentration level was 97%.
On March 4, I had my second dose. I had a fair amount of pain in the arm. Next day I had chills and feverish-ness though body temperature was 98 F. I felt exhausted and felt like lying down and went to bed at 7.30 itself. After that there has not been any problem. My BP is back to 125/85. My wife had her 2nd dose on March 12 and she is also absolutely fine. Her BP also has got back to 130/85. Now as on March 19, we are both fine.
