    Anyone have any issues with blood sugar levels after their Covid booster shots . My levels have risen since I’ve had my shot

    Yes mine were slightly higher for a week or two after each vaccine from what I can remember - a few months ago now - I am due to have the next one :(

    Wow. I'm glad to hear that. Not because I want your BG to go up of course, but because mine did, and I was hoping that it was because of the shot not because I had been overeating!

    Mine dropped with both original shots, which surprised me as with flu jabs they always go up for a week. No boosters for the average Dutch diabetic yet. ;)

    Yes I need more insulin after each meal and it takes a long time to start working, I had the same problem after my first covid injection but no problem after my second, I just hope it does not last to long

    My sugar levels went up for a few days, which is to be expected with vaccination.

    Mine raised about 1.5 mmol for about a week, then got a stinker of a cold which bumped them even higher. Slowly dropping back to more acceptable levels.

    Wouldn’t have a clue about my bg but had a nasty banging headache for a week. I also couldn’t move my arm that was injected for a day, had pain in my neck and all around my shoulder. If this is a yearly booster I won’t be having another!!

    It looks like the shots only last six months. ☹️
