Very curious --- Who has gotten their COVID vaccination? I am interested in other's opinions on getting the vaccine, and how they tolerated the injection.
My wife and I (in Bradford County Florida) have received both of ours, the final Moderna one at the end of February. While I have heard terrible stories, including from the lady who gave me my last shot and my nurse practitioner, neither of us had bad reactions.
Mine was mild and lasted a day, my wife's was a tiny bit worse and lasted a day as well.
I feel safe now for the first time in a year.
So pleased to hear you and your wife have been vaccinated. I know many of us were and are apprehensive. I felt due to the severity of the virus I weighed getting it and just felt we need a herd and did my part. I ended up with Pfizer. I did not have a reaction other than site soreness. I am with you, after I got it I felt a lot safer.
I hope many choose to take the vaccine, we need to rid ourselves of the virus.
Those who don't get it could become isolated forever. Who knows?
And there could be more worse covid viruses in future requiring additional vaccines.
How many vaccine do you need to get before your body becomes irreversibly damaged. Just a thought.
In my view, no one should take the vaccine if they have thoughts it will possibly have long long-lasting side effects. And they should not become isolated. However, they should continue to mitigate until the herd is developed. This will take a while perhaps a year or more.
I think you are right, the COVID vaccine will be part of a yearly vaccine for a long while. H1N1 hit in 2009, and we still have a vaccine added to our yearly flu vaccine to handle mutated H1N1.
I won't be taking any vaccine. I trust holistic doctors.
Not the leading cause of death, the medical profession
Not all people qualify for the vaccine. Those who have certain allergies to medications, and even eggs, cannot take the vaccine. You need to check with your doctor first.
People have died after receiving the vaccine. As all drugs that are passed by the FDA, they carry side effects that are often worse than the originating symptoms.
Check with your doctor before taking the vaccine! I mentioned above that neither my 82 year-old mother, nor I (age 64) can take the vaccine because of certain allergies and no one has responded to that. Don't go into this blindly. Consult your doctor, then make your decision.
I wonder if there will be reactions that happen a year later.
I don't quite yet qualify because I'm a year shy of 65. However, although I decided I wouldn't get vaccinated, I'm not eligible anyway. Nor is my mom who is 82. We're both allergic to medications that end in ine. Her doctor told her that due to the "ine" allergy and sinus problems she has, she can't take the vaccine. The "ine" allergy runs in the family, so we just have to be diligent about maintaining good health, wearing masks, and adhering to social distancing.
I got my first dose of Moderns last month and my second dose will be March 13th. I only had a sore arm for a couple days. I am concerned about side effects with the next dose, which my brother-in-law's wasn't good. We'll see.
Over here in G. only those above 80 are currently eligible or if you are working in an essential service. By now allmost all nursing homes for the elderly are protected.
My parents however are closing in on 100 and live in their own house. So i had to take care of them being vaccinated. Both got the BionTech (Phizer) vaccine. No reaction, no sore shoulder, no symptoms, nothing. As i stayed with my parents during the vaccination process, i found it fascinating, how small the syringes are in diameter. The puncture was so small, not even a drop of blood coming.
I started this thread to attempt to ascertain the difference between Moderna and Phizer. I received Phizer and have no adverse after-injection side effects. From reading the comment here, looks as if some have had some minor side effect from Moderna.
I am yet to have mine. So is every one here in Nigeria. Glad to note side effects.
Apparently over 900 died from it in US. And many had side effects.
I have not, and I can't get one for my 92 year old mother either. Infuriating.
I haven't even tried yet. I am still working from home anyway so I don't really have anywhere to go, I can wait.
I think you are right, I go out little, and have not even got a cold this winter. And I just got the vaccine a few days ago at Meijers. I am glad at this point I got it, I travel out of the country each winter, and I expect I may need it next winter.
My husband and I received our second dose of the Moderna vaccine yesteday. We are in Douglas County, Oregon. We are both experiencing arm soreness and fatigue/body aches similar to a major cold.
My husband got his first Moderna injection, and I got my first Pfizer shot days apart and in different locations. We both had very slight arm soreness. We are looking forward to receiving our second shots in the weeks ahead.
My wife and I received our second Moderna shot. We both had sore arms. She had a slight headache and slept a lot. I got the chills for about 8 hours and felt like I couldn't get warm, no matter how I dressed. But it never affected us to the point where it disabled us.
I have the first Moderna shot (second one scheduled in about a week). The only reaction was a slightly sore arm, but not so much I could sleep on it, on my side. Truthfully, it was almost nothing, and certainly less than the flu shot I had last fall. A lot less.
I didn't and don't plan to get the vaccine. I rather stay away from them in general. I like alternative medicine and try to avoid drugs in general.
Though, I did get Covid in Jan 2020. I thought it was a real bad strain of the flu since it wasn't out of the bag until March.
It took forever to get over it. If I knew it was Covid, I might have been more stressed out about it. I did experience shortness of breath after having symptoms for two weeks. It was during racquetball game but I stayed relaxed. I had a heck of a time keeping track of the score, too.
I found out I had it 10 months later via an anti-body test while traveling and in mandatory quarantine.
Glad to hear you have the COVID antibodies. You are part of the herd...
They inject you with some covid like small pox.
Your amunne system is ready to go.
Not exactly: The active ingredient in the vaccines that stimulate the immune response is synthetic RNA made in the laboratory and in itself completely harmless to humans. And after your first jab the immune system isn't ready to go, it takes several weeks (up to one month) before the immune system is ready to protect you against Covid. The 1st jab gives protection after a month e.g. up to 70% protection. The 2nd jab does no more than boost that protection, increasing it to over 90% within a few weeks of your 2nd jab.

In your world you can travels up.
In my world less risk of going down. Because the world's leading cause of death is.... , The mainstream Medical profession. Especially Gates helping to reduce world population.
My husband got his second shot (Pfizer) yesterday. He has had no side effects. I am a few months short of age 65, so I can't get it yet.
My wife and I (in our early 60’s) had our first vaccine last week:
We had the Oxford University vaccine, and are now booked in for the second jab in mid-May (about 12 week’s gap, in accordance with UK Government Policy).
In the UK vaccination is so simple e.g. you just wait for the NHS to send you a letter, when it’s your turn; and then turn up at the vaccination centre at the appointed time, so that that there is no quieting, or no waiting e.g. in an out within 15 minutes; job done.
Below, is the vaccination centre we were told to attend, and how it was done:-
Ashton Gate Stadium NHS Vaccination Centre – Where to come and what to expect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isLdG6AbeXE
In the UK, unlike other countries, the Government policy is to vaccinate as many people with the first dose as quickly as possible, within the first three months; and then start doing the 2nd jab e.g. to protect more people in a shorter given period of time.
Also, in the UK, unlike other countries, after ensuring that all elderly people in care-homes and all front line medical (NHS) staff are protected, the Government policy is to prioritise the vaccination strictly according to age e.g. the older generation first, and the youngest (18 to 29 year olds to be vaccinated last). But with the speed of vaccination being carried out in the UK e.g. as of today over 41.5% of the adult population now vaccinated, virtually all adults will have been vaccinated by the end of June; with the Government intention to lift the lockdown in the UK and return to normal life on 21st June.
Currently (this week, 7th March) those in their 50’s in the UK are being vaccinated.
The UK is also running phase III trials on vaccinating children, with the intention, that if those trials are successful, to also vaccinate all children in the UK from the age of 6 to 17 in the coming Autumn e.g. from September.
I had my first one & get the 2nd on March 24th. Here's an article I wrote https://hubpages.com/hub/Poem-Fear-of-t … na?hubview
