Amber, my first shot was the Astra Zeneca and my second was Pfizer. Had a bit of a metallic taste with the AZ and a little nausea but with the Pfizer, I didn't have any side effects. I'm eligible for a booster but am getting my flu shot on the 22, so I am going to wait to get that.
I had my spleen out in 2006.
No side effects - get Pfizer booster in the morning. I have heard from a few that the booster has caused pain at the injection site - but know you aren't looking for that type of side effect. I did not have any known drop in count - even if I did I would still have gotten the 2nd and also made the appointment for the booster.

Moderna, two shots.
Both shots gave me fever the day after. Second shot tiredness and body pain.
After that (july and august) I've had counts of 40 until last week, I had 175, but after romiplostim dosage increased. Don't know if it has something to do with the vaccine, but It could be and my doctor thinks it's always a possibility. Anyway I prefer the vaccine, don't want to catch the virus without it!
