Didn't feel a thing!

MODERNA

Will update with side effects, if any
Here's a 24 hour update
No noticeable side effects other than a little tiredness a few hour after the shot
My favorite rocking chair cured that.

Huge thanks to everyone who has responded to this post.
Hopefully your (and future) replies will induce others to get vaccinated.

Stay safe
Ed

Here's an update
I got the 2nd Moderna shot on Thursday
This time there were side effects worth mentioning
About an hour after the injection I began to become hyper
Accompanied by a HUGE hunger
Utensils flying, I concocted enough dinner for 3 persons
And at every bit of it.
Got a good nights sleep, and awoke feeling fine

Shades of my youth!!!

We cannot KNOW how many are attributable to covid now, because CDC has started counting covid deaths in with the flu and pneumonia deaths.


Remember that masking, social distancing and hand washing will help protect against flu and pneumonia as well (as will, obviously, the vaccinations against them).

I didn't know pneumonia was contagious. Ive never had pneumonia but I have a buddy that gets it all the time.

I didn't know pneumonia was contagious. Ive never had pneumonia but I have a buddy that gets it all the time.

It most assuredly is infectious, caused by infection by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae and transmitted by respiratory secretions and aerosols.  It used to be known as "the old man's friend" since it took old fogies like me off the board before they got completely decrepit.  It is still around, as clearly indicated by the TV commercials for Prevnar 13 and other pneumonia vaccines, but much less of a concern since the bacterium is still pretty much sensitive to a variety of antibiotics.  Nonetheless, it makes more sense to prevent infection by vaccination, and other measures to prevent transmission, than to depend on infected people getting to the hospital and being effectively treated and medically supported.

Iíll probably get mine after going back to work at ASH. Since itís health care itíll probably be semi-mandatory at some point.
Until then, Iím younger, healthy, and survived Covid once already. Iíll wait til it becomes more readily available.
Iím already pretty much an introvert anyways ;)

Its begging to look that way here. We were issued little red plastic 'padlocks' to clip on our IDs denoting the vaccine and then came the announcement that certain wards will only be accessible by those with the lock.

Mandatory or not, time will tell.

My wife and I had our second Pfizer vaccine injection Thursday.  My wife ran a low grade fever Friday,  I did NOT. We both experienced fatigue and mild headaches Friday and Saturday.  Today we're over all the symptoms except we both woke up feeling tired.  I would say overall it was like having very mild flu symptoms.

Scheduled to get my first modena shot next Thursday from the VA. Second shot is scheduled for the 30 and my wife and I are driving to Texas the next day. Sure hope that second one doesn't make me sick. That will be one miserable drive.🤢

Itís just a flu.

If you want the vaccine thatís your prerogative.

I hope everyone that does gets it timely.
I donít wish any side affects on anyone.

If you believe the things the Media says that too is your prerogative.

But donít force your misguided views of a deadly pandemic on me..

I was laid off before Covid. Being out of work for over a year is far more dangerous than Covid for my family of 5.

There are still people that cannot wear a mask for medical reasons and are being medically discriminated against.

Jeremy
I certainly respect your opinion
And fully appreciate your not wanting to discourage others from being vaccinated
I'm one of those who has been vaccinated, and will continue to recommend that others do so,.
Without being judgemental, of course.
This attitude may seem misguided to you.
No worries
That's your take on it.

However, "just the flu",  Covid 19 is not.
Here in the US we are at 500,000 deaths since the first one just about a year ago.
The flu annually kills 22,000-60,000
That is quite drastic difference

On a more personal note, I do empathize with your loss of employment.
Even with extended & enhanced unemployment benefits; and infrequent stimulus checks, they are not replacements for the value of work.
Especially as so few of our representatives even have a clue as to what it means to be dependent upon a paycheck.

Take care
Ed

My son got c19 and he said it was worse he's ever been sick. He had the Flu back in December and until he was tested he thought he had caught covid-19 but tested neg. He ended up catching it from one of his workers a couple of months later and put him in the emergency room at the VA. It's not the Flu! It might be related some how but it's not the Flu!

Itís not the flu. I will concede that.

Itís death toll is not 500,000 though.

The real # we may never know.

I personally donít trust anyone after Iíve caught them in a few lies.
