re: Covid vaccine check in
Why would you want the vaccine if you've already had Covid? You have the means to fight it now.

That’s a good question. I’m on day 11 and still have tingling in arms and legs plus a small headache. I never had a fever so not sure how well my body fought this thing.

I wasn’t admitted to a hospital and I wouldn’t call my symptoms severe but enough to make me wish I or anyone I know never has to deal with this. Getting a vaccine even though I’ve had it would put my mind at ease I guess. Maybe a sort of “double protection”.

But I definitely understand your comment. This whole thing is crazy and just looking for feedback. Thanks

re: Covid vaccine check in
I got my first shot a couple of weeks ago. No issues. I get my second in a couple of weeks.

Some of my coworkers who tested positive for COVID in the past and received the shot have reported becoming ill after receiving the shot. I have only heard this from those who previously had the virus.

I'm young.. ish, healthy, in shape, and take no medications. I have the opportunity to take the vaccine this week and I am doing it. I feel selfish because there are people in my Community that are more at risk that have not had the chance to get it.

There’s discussion (and studies) whether the vaccine antibodies will last longer than natural infection. I believe early studies indicate natural infection may only last 3-ish months. An early study has shown the Moderna vaccine may last up to two years. It’s why they’re still recommending folks who have had it to get vaccinated if they’re 90 days out from infection.

I’ve never had COVID (have negative antibodies to prove it). I had a sore arm from first shot (Pfizer). Second shot I was sick for a day (fever, chills, body aches, fatigue) and then totally fine.

I go for my first shot in a little bit (Moderna). Hopefully don't have to wait too long (they're using the Fairgrounds here to vaccinate everyone in healthcare and education).

Got my 2nd dose Monday around 11:30. Was fine until about 11 yesterday morning. Got a massive headache and felt very sleepy. Fought through it and worked till end of the day at 4. Got home and hit the couch, had fever and chills and stayed there till about midnight. Felt much better this morning. Still just a slight headache.

Very similar to what I am hearing from those who had COVID and then subsequently got the vaccine. I get my second one next week. Fingers crossed.

re: Covid vaccine check in
Got my first shot earlier today (Moderna). Took about an hour and 45 minutes from the time I left my house to getting back home afterward.

My left arm is pretty sore. Will probably ice it before bed.

NYT featured our vaccination system by the way. It was pretty awesome. That thing is like a well-oiled machine.

re: Covid vaccine check in
So our sheriff got hold of some Pfizer doses and sponsored a popup vaccine event. The head of the community health clinic was jealous, made some calls and shut him down.

re: Covid vaccine check in
I have severe reservations on people claiming immunity only lasts 3-4 months. Your body doesn't just forget. T-cell immunity is a thing whether fauci denies it or not. You may become infected with a different strain as there are, what, 1-150 different strains right now? To take both sides, however, cross immunity exists as well. So if you get hit by another coronavirus that is similar to sars-covi-2, then you very well may have immunity from sars cov 2.

Our major problem is that testing was completely useless to map out the above from the beginning. We took previous recommendations and methods and threw them out the window. Matching only one gene caused a positive case, even if that specific E-gene is identical with other coronaviruses. The regiment of using multiple genes to produce a positive result was changed.

All this to not go into the nonsensical cycle thresholds being cranked up to 40-45. I want to watch Florida's numbers carefully as they are reducing and providing the CT numbers along with their testing.

I am having a hard time deciding to put my name on the list. I am young and healthy. I cannot trust the vaccine when the testing itself is not long term. The science behind the virus is so politicized. If I could get a prophylactic that has proven to be safe, I'd go that route instead. However, with such blatant politics behind proven measures, I wonder how reluctant a doctor would be to prescribe it.

re: Covid vaccine check in
I've seen those claims said before - it will be interesting to see how that all pans out. I can't imagine immunity from natural infection being that much different than the vaccine, but what the hell do I know.. my point is I wouldn't feel the need to rush to get a vaccine if I have already had it.

re: Covid vaccine check in
FWIW I was told by several doctors that I'd be immune anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months but to definitely get the vaccine when it's available.

I’d love to see the science behind that.

re: Covid vaccine check in
I got my second dose on Wednesday morning. I was fine until Wednesday night, when I started to get cold chills. I ended up being awake all night, shivering under a blanket with a headache and had to stay home from work the next day. I have none of those symptoms today, but my lymph node under the arm I got my shot in is swollen and tender, and I feel a little fatigued. I had no issues with the first dose, but the second one legit felt like I had beginning of the flu. If these things only last 3 months, too bad. I won't be getting these 3-4 times a year. frick that.

Same exact thing happened to me for my second dose. Don't regret getting the initial vaccine, but I won't be taking any boosters.

re: Covid vaccine check in
I'm getting it next week. I'm all for "doing my part to get to herd immunity", but the fact is I'm tired of this shite and want to start doing things like travel, classes etc. If this helps, great. The "worst case scenario" of getting it, or giving it to a family member and something bad happens is not palatable.

Issue is getting ahead of the curve with the new variants on the horizon so they don't be come the predominant strain. It's too early to tell for sure, but research seems to show that the vaccines will have at least some effect against the new variants. And companies will be tweaking their vaccine to make it more effective against different strains.

re: Covid vaccine check in
My NP wife has taken 2 of the Pfizer vaccinations,1’st she had no side effects,2’nd she had low grade fever,chills and body aches about 24 hours.
I haven’t taken it yet but I will when it’s convenient,I’m not worried about it enough to make appointment and all that.
Based on studies I’ve read and our experience in our family I really believe Vit D3 is huge when it comes to prevention.My wife has been around a hundred plus patients plus bunch co-workers that got the Covid and she never got it.Our immediate family(15 people) have all been on Vit D3 and none of us have gotten it.
We’re all good about wearing masks in stores ,etc.She ,of course,wears one all day at work.Here at the house,we all still get together for meals and visits just like we always did pre-Covid.It’s possible we’ve just been lucky.
