Are you going to get the Covid Booster Shot?

I scheduled mine for Friday. I had to go to the convention center and wait in a long line for my vaccines but the booster shot I can get right down the street from me at my grocery store pharmacy which will be more convenient. Right now only Pfizer is available.

Both of my parents got theirs over a month ago, and neither experienced side effects. However, I'd like to hold off on getting a booster unless absolutely necessary. I'm fully vaccinated, but don't want a booster until it's established it makes a difference (an annual booster I could handle, but not every 6 months!)

I called my local Walgreens on Thursday and asked if I could get the booster. The girl I spoke with seemed frazzled but after asking me how old I was (68) and when I'd gotten my 2nd shot she said I could and she scheduled me for tomorrow. I got a text from them about an hour ago advising me they had made a mistake and because I had gotten the Moderna vaccine I was not eligible yet, but hopefully would be soon. I assume they checked my vaccination record and saw I'd had Moderna as I never even mentioned it to the girl on the phone and (I assumed I could stipulate which one I needed when I got there) they're only giving Pfizer boosters at this point.

by Anonymousreply 28September 27, 2021 8:49 PM

Why I made sure my parents got their boosters today:

"To believe that the vaccinated elderly are perfectly safe is to raise uncomfortable questions about the way we have processed risk by universalizing it. According to an analysis of British data by the Financial Times, a vaccinated 80-year-old has about the same mortality risk as an unvaccinated 50-year-old, and an unvaccinated 30-year-old has a lower risk than a vaccinated 45-year-old.

It’s a sign of just how large the age skew is to begin with that getting vaccinated doesn’t deliver you into an entirely new category of pandemic safety — safer and more protected than anyone who hasn’t gotten vaccinated — but simply pushes you down the slope of mortality risk by the equivalent of a few decades."

My 93 yr old Dad and I missed our booster appt at Albertson's last Monday, but when we asked to re-sched, they told us they were doing walk-ins for boosters. Dad had his Pfizer OG in January @our local Council on Aging (sponsored by Albertson's); mine were @CVS in Feb.

Dad had NO issues, just like his first 2 shots. I had arm heaviness and injection site swelling and soreness. Three days later, I'm 100% good.

Our whole family across the country are vaxxed except for my big brother in Florida. Sadly, my brilliant BigBro has fallen prey to Florida-ness, and won't take the shots. So now we other siblings have to decide what we're going to do for the holidays--allow Brother to travel here and stay at the family homestead, or tell him we love him, but he is not welcome in the home without the vaccine.

They don't seem to always enforce the rules. One CVS told me I was too young. I went to another and they never even asked my age.

After I got the shot I asked the woman what was up with that. She said the whole country's healtcare system is in a state of confusion. They don't know who to inject and who not too.

I guess I got mine because it was like 5pm and the woman was sitting there with no customers and like 100 viles of the booster. I don't know if they have to use them all the day they get them.

Anyone who gets the third dose booster can expect to be safe from breakthrough infections unless you’re already very sick from something and you’re seriously immunocompromised or 90 years old.

The booster prevents any and all infection and transmission in 93-100% of recipients of the booster, according to data from Israel, where they’ve been administering the 3rd dose (booster) for a few months now.

That’s Pfizer. Moderna might offer even higher vaccine effectiveness.

No asymptomatic breakthrough infections. If you get one, you’re either *extremely* unlucky or very sick to begin with.

Once I get mine I think I’m going to stop wearing my mask in the subway.

Whenever I get chills, my body thermostat is off, but a little Ibuprofen and a long stand in a hot showed resets everything. That and a nap after.

And as to mask wearing, I have taken to the Korean habit of socially distancing and wearing a mask all the time I am out of the house. It will continue post pandemic.

R126 - you are obviously not asthmatic. Masks are a torture for me. I got the booster last night and thought no biggie, my body already knows this jab. Woke up shivering and major pain at the site. Due to my ulcerative colitis, I can't tolerate oral ibuprofen, so I just took half an Aleve and was in and out of sleep 14 hours. Of course, it came on the heels of an exhausting trip where I threw out my back and also recently had the flu shot. However, with over 300 dead a day out here, it's worth making and vaxing.

At present, I'm under 65 with no conditions, hitting six months myself. Not particularly concerned personally about being ill, but it's looking like a booster will be necessary for foreign travel in 2022.

R114, you are ignorant. Your protection from your previous vaccination is now somewhere around the 50% range, and dropping. It's absolutely ridiculous to have gotten the first two shots but not the booster.

As for the worse reactions to the booster, those are because this is an actual booster. The second dose you got, three weeks to a month after your initial dose, was more like a first megadose. Your immune system has several layers of protection and defense that it mounts and those first doses triggered the initial antibody response, the most immediate response. These boosters, given at a more normal booster interval, are the ones that create the deeper, more longterm immune response where B and T cells get more involved. So, those worse reactions are your already primed immune system.

And, finally, it is the 30-40% of unvaccinated selfish assholes that are making the responsible among us have to even get the boosters. If those fuckers had gotten vaccinated when they were supposed to, we wouldn't be dealing with this fifth wave that's now starting. Until we reach upwards of 80%, maybe 90%, vaccinated, we're going to continue this bullshit. They should all be ashamed of themselves but they are too stupid to feel shame and too selfish to act responsibly. They should be locked away from society as the sociopaths they are.

Got my Pfizer booster and my flu shot today. I normally get my flu shot in October, but my primary care doctor has canceled my 6 month checkup twice, so I just never took care of it until now. I’ll probably feel hellish this weekend but it beats the real thing. This time last year, I was sick with pleurisy, and I don’t want to suffer like that if I can help it.

I was a bit annoyed with CVS though. I made the appointment online for both shots. I received two texts saying to check in on my phone when I arrived. I responded to one text. Then I had to stand in line to check in. Then, I had to wait for 30 minutes because they only had one pharmacist on duty, and the poor woman was administering vaccines, filling scripts, etc. Then, I received just one shot. Turns out, I was supposed to respond to BOTH texts so it all showed up on the computer. Whatever. So then she had to draw up the other vaccine. First world problems, I know.

[quote] Vaccines are only a small part of the solution.

Really? “Only a small part”? They’re actually the largest part and always have been. Yes, total isolation from other people, including members of your own goddamn household, is the surest way to avoid it, but that’s not practical for the vast, VAST majority of people. Masks only work if they’re KN95, N95, or—less effective—the cheap, 3-layer surgical masks. Cloth masks do absolutely nothing at all.

Vaccines are more effective and practical than masks and social distancing. The mRNA vax, Moderna more than Pfizer, prevent any kind of infection — including asymptomatic — for the first several months after the second dose. Their ability to protect from moderate and severe illness, if one becomes infected with Covid, remains high well after 6 months. A third dose (booster) brings the effectiveness back up to ~96%, and at that point, we’re looking at something endemic that may eventually fade away, becoming more like the common cold coronaviruses.

Masks and social distancing will not get us there—they only prolong the inevitable. Sure, you can wear a KN95 and stay as distanced as you want until Covid-19 fades into the background over the next couple years, but do not think that vaccines are only a “small part” of the solution. They are the largest part.

[quote]If his concept, now in clinical trials, proves successful, Dr. Modjarrad says in five years a single vaccine could defeat all coronaviruses: that means many common colds, the deadly strain causing this pandemic and thousands of others.

This concern about the spike protein doesn't only apply to people who got the vaccine. It applies to anyone who was infected, symptomatically or asymptomatically, by Covid-19. They also got a good "shot" of the spike protein in their bodies. The CDC says there are about 146 million estimated cases of Covid in the US (with only 48 million REPORTED cases.)

“At this point I think we need to accept that there’s a lot of breakthrough infections happening, particularly people who are out a significant portion of time from their original vaccination. There’s probably more infection happening among the vaccinated population, more spread happening in that population, the unboosted portion of that population, than what we’re picking up because we’re just not systematically tracking this.

There’s going to be retrospective studies that identify this, but we’re not doing a good job of tracking this in real time. And this is the argument for people to go out and get boosters,”

R226

I'm 61 - planning on getting tetanus soon; have read that it's actually good for 30 years, not ten, so as my last one was 30 years ago, this'll be it for me. We have no mask mandates here, and I'm highly unlikely to be spreading covid myself, so unmasked as well. I don't make comments or remarks to/about similar people who do mask, so appreciate that they extend same to me.

Second shingles jab will be this winter (did flu recently).

Why do you people call shots jabs? Just spring for the extra letter; you’re not on Jeopardy.

It’s a UK thing, R231, where they refuse to use a perfectly sensible and grown-up word. They have to make it into something cutesy and more descriptive.

So if you're "fully vaccinated" you can still catch Covid, you can still die from it, you still have to wear a mask in some settings, it makes you an "asymptomatic super-spreader", you might suffer horrific side effects, and on top of all that you need to take a booster jab every couple months...

Why aren't more vaccinated people pissed off about this? The product they promised you is not the same one you got spunked into your veins. They told you it would just be two jabs and you're done; now you're looking at a lifetime subscription service to booster jabs. "It's like the flu jab you get every year!!" No. Not even close, and if it were they should have marketed it as that from the get-go. But the crafty cunts knew that if they told people they were facing jabs every five or six~ months there would be a Hell of a lot more "vaccine hesitancy", and for good fucking reason too. FUCK THAT NOISE.

These pharma companies did you dirty. They are not your friends. They do not care about your health; the money-grubbing cunts want people sick so they can make more money. That's kind of their whole business model. More sick people = more money.

If you felt shitty after your first two jabs then imagine taking booster jabs every six months. I bet there are a LOT of people in that particular boat and I can't imagine all of them will be up for another shot of that fucking poison.

You will never be "fully vaccinated". There's a reason they've never been able to eradicate the flu (until last year apparently), and Covid is the same way.

You’re much less likely to need hospitalization, you’re much less likely to die.

[quote]r233 on top of all that you need to take a booster jab every couple months...

Wasn’t the recent recommendation 9 months? It will most likely change at some point. Even if it didn’t, we get a flu shot every year. It’s not like all this is unheard of. Are you very young?

[quote]r233 They told you it would just be two jabs and you're done;

Who told you that? The rest of us were never told that. This is a new virus and doctors have always been upfront about how they are merely trying their best to stay ahead of what is in some ways a previously unknown thing.

You sound rather childish…. or as if you were forced to sell your house, family and all possessions to get vaccinated. Did someone pull something like that on you??? Maybe you need to call the police.

Got the 3rd Moderna booster jab this morning. So far, just a sore arm and a mild headache. Popped some Tylenol and it seems to be keeping things at bay. I had a huge reaction to the 2nd Moderna jab -- like I got hit with a Mack truck! So I imagine this will be smoother sailing in the end.

Definitely happy I got it (and even more grateful in hindsight that I was given Moderna from the outset, which seems to be far more effective than Pfizer and J&J). I've had friends on Moderna have breakthrough infections, but they either were symptomless or had VERY mild symptoms that passed within a couple days. Whereas the breakthrough infections with my Pfizer friends (all in their late 40s) were pretty brutal and lingered a solid week.

by Anonymousreply 248November 24, 2021 1:03 AM

How do you know so many people who were infected, r248? I only know one - a coworker who had it passed on to her by her husband. And we’re not even close.

by Anonymousreply 249November 24, 2021 1:31 AM

Received my Moderna booster one month ago. No issues.

My 96 yo Dad tested positive for Covid 4 weeks ago after receiving the Moderna vaccines in Feb. He just had sniffles as a symptom. Then he got a booster so he should be fine for this winter.

I assume these boosters will become a semiannual thing until all of the yahoos refusing to get vaccinated die off.

by Anonymousreply 250November 24, 2021 1:38 AM

If I had any breakthrough with Pfizer, mine must have been asymptomatic as I've never experienced feeling something remotely like a nasty case of the flu.

by Anonymousreply 251November 24, 2021 1:38 AM

If he tested positive four weeks ago, he shouldn't need a booster for another few months?

Re: R246, What does the black line represent, and what does the orange line represent? Isn’t there usually a legend for charts like that?

I think vaccine passports are sort of silly. But I guess if they want to keep them in place until everyone has had their 6-month booster? I don’t know. The booster makes all the difference when it comes to preventing symptomatic infection—it’s seriously not something worth worrying about.

Bottom line, get the booster if you’re eligible. And then stop worrying about shit. Cases don’t matter, only hospitalizations and deaths matter now. Just get the booster and be done with it.

I got a Moderna shot this afternoon. My arm is sore. I’ve been napping the last 2 hours. I woke up with low blood sugar and felt extremely faint, but that’s because I didn’t eat enough today. Hoping I’m on my feet tomorrow and can work.

Got a booster and a flu shot yesterday afternoon. Very tired, achy, chills, mild fever, mild headache since late last night ... should be over sometime later today based on my experience with the first two Pfizer shots.

by Anonymousreply 256November 24, 2021 12:14 PM

Got my booster yesterday at a small, family-owned pharmacy in Brooklyn (could not get an appt with CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens…). In and out in 15 minutes.

Had Pfizer 2x in the spring, was allowed to choose Moderna for the booster. Sore arm today, didn’t sleep well last night, so I can’t decide if it’s “immune response fatigue” or just “didn’t sleep well last night” fatigue that I’m experiencing today. Either way, it’s very mild.

In another 13 days I’m de-masking wherever I can get away with it, and that includes the subway. If I go into a coffee shop or store that requires a mask, I’ll put a mask on.

by Anonymousreply 257November 24, 2021 5:28 PM

R248 here -- so the mild headache turned into full blown fever/chills/body aches by 2am. Woke up in a puddle of sweat at 6am, flu/fever symptoms were very apparent. It felt like 2/3rds the intensity of the 2nd Moderna jab. Almost 8 hours later, the arm is still super sore, body is achy, but the fever/chills have subsided. Definitely a write-off day though (no work, no working out!)

Still VERY happy to have the booster and for it to be creating a robust response. Bring on the holiday parties, baby!

[quote] Eric Topol is a fearmongerer. He used to be good but now he's Eric Ding 2.0. Cases are irrelevant precisely because they become decoupled from hospitalization and death, and the fact that he doesn't acknowledge this shows he has ulterior motives

[quote] I don't really care if a small number of people are dying from COVID. Almost all of them are unvaccinated people, and the few that are vaccinated had the option to get a booster. The first two doses are so effective against severe disease that there's no reason for masks

I agree with that reply. The vaccines in general have been available for many months. For at-risk people, the booster has been available for several weeks. It’s now available to everyone, and everyone who cares about cases should have other gotten one by now or made an appointment.

As for the willfully unvaccinated—I haven’t cared about them in ages. Cases will exist. They will spread. The virus will do its thing no matter what; all we can do is put up as much of a shield as possible, and the vaccines (+boosters) are far and away the sharpest tool we have. Locking down, masking up, socially distancing only *delays the inevitable*. Look at New Zealand and Australia.

R260, regardless of who you care about or judge, the death rate remains EXTREMELY low. The danger is exaggerated to absurd levels.

The US population is approximately 330,000,000. 771,000 people have died. That's not even ONE QUARTER OF ONE PERCENT of the population.

Aussie here - I had my Pfizer booster on Tuesday and I’m having a few side effects. Sore arm and lymph nodes, really tired and extremely lightheaded. Luckily, I work from home so I’ve been able to stay in bed. The lightheadedness is the worst symptom by far. I’ve been like a pinball, bouncing off the walls when I get up to do something.

What lies have been told, R272? (I’m not the poster in question though I’ve probably posted nearly as much).

R270, I’ve been extremely tired and occasionally light-headed since getting the Moderna booster Tuesday afternoon. The lightheadedness is similar to a brief, quasi-dizzy feeling I get when I forget to take my antidepressant on time. It’s very brief. But it happens whenever I turn around quickly, or bend over and stand upright again.

I’m sure it’ll pass. When I had the first two Pfizer shots, the first one made me significantly fatigued for 3 or 4 days.
