What booster are you getting?

I had Pfizer and my parents had Moderna.

I'm not sure which to choose for the booster shot.

Moderna just got approved today as did mixing the vaccines.

r7. I have got AstraZeneca combined with Moderna as a second shot due to the every day changing of what vaccine is good for what age range discussion we had in the spring time in Germany. Which at the end of the day was stated as the best mixture you could get.

So asking my oncologist yesterday what booster shot he would recommend, the answer was to reach for Biontech, because then I would cover the widest range. Probably at the end it does not really matter, just get the f.... booster.

I received the Moderna booster a couple of days ago. Side effects are mild and basically made me feel a little tired. My two shots during the winter were also Moderna.

Half the people in my region are not vaccinated at all. Yet they carelessly mingle with others, spreading the virus. This continues to be disturbing. While infection figures are declining, I would not dismiss a new surge happening when colder weather arrives and holiday travel and gatherings get prevalent.

Pfizer all the way, including the booster. It was what they were giving initially so that was also the third shot I got. I had no issues.

by Anonymousreply 14October 26, 2021 3:53 PM

For those who got the Moderna booster, did you get the half dose? Or did you get the booster before they decided to use half doses?

My first 2 were Pfizer. I'm too young for the booster (will be 60 in a couple of months), but I've developed high BP over this past year and have recently started on medication, so my Dr said I qualify for a booster now. (I guess there's a silver lining in there somewhere). I could have gotten the booster at my appointment today, but I have to schedule this at a time that I can take a sick day the following day, as I needed one for Shot #2.

I'll take whichever is available, though I'm watching to see what your experiences are.

r7 & r9 I too heard that which is why I insisted on getting an AstraZeneca first dose even though they were trying to give me Pfizer. What I'll do is stick to AZ for the second dose (which is spaced out for the maximum allowable 12 weeks) then I'll get an mRNA booster next year. So glad I stuck to my guns.

I initially had Moderna back in February and March. I'm now eligible for a booster. I checked with my doctor who advised to stick with Moderna. I thought maybe mixing it up was beneficial but he disagreed.

I am a RN, and have been giving vaccinations. I had 2 Pfizer’s and got Moderna for my booster yesterday, along with my flu shot. I chose Moderna because it has proven to be the best at preventing breakthrough infections. Healthcare workers have been giving Moderna boosters for over a month in my city (the full dose) even though it wasn’t approved. A lot of public clinics have EMT’s, dental hygienists, etc vaccinating and they don’t give AF. We also aren’t allowed to ask questions, so you can say that you are immunocompromised without being specific if you want the booster now.

R21, my mother also got her Moderna half-dose booster yesterday and her arm is also very sore. More than with the other shots. That could just be the skill of the person giving the shot, though. She now has the light flu-like reaction she got with the second Moderna shot earlier in the year. Hope it only lasts the 12 or so hours it lasted last time. My dad got his Pfizer booster a couple of days ago and, just like the first time, no reaction.

[quote]I chose Moderna because it has proven to be the best at preventing breakthrough infections.

Wasn't the higher level of protection Moderna had against Delta due to the higher dose more so than the makeup of the vaccine? They both work the same way and code for the same spike protein. I understand that a full dose booster of Pfizer is still a little less of a dose than the half-dose of Moderna but I don't think, as a booster, that's going to make much difference.

I had my first booster yesterday, Pfizer. Also had my flu shot in the other arm. My first two shots were also Pfizer.

This booster went so smoothly, the nurse was excellent. I even went home, and questioned if maybe she hadn’t given the proper shot. Until I lifted that arm. Shitdamnfook that hurt, and it still does today. Happy to report no instant chills afterwards this time. Just a little nausea for an hour afterwards.

Now the 4th shot for the population that is immunocompromised.

I received the 3rd shot, Moderna booster, several days ago.

I am in a state whereby 47% or so of the residents have not received any Covid vaccine. I am not immuno- compromised, but am in a risky category. It really angers me there are an abundance of unvaccinated spreaders out there that don't give a shit about taking the necessary precautions.

They need to pull the Janssen shot off the market. It is not good enough for widespread distribution, should’ve never been marketed as a one shot vaccine. We were lied to!

Just a tip for anyone getting a shot in a drugstore. Keep the paperwork they give you - or at least make a note of the lot number. I sent a note to my doctor via MyChart to advise that I had gotten the shot at Walgreens and they wanted to know the lot number. I had thrown the paper away after the shot and had to go back and ask them to reprint it.

Another tip. If you have been vaccinated and use an iPhone, you can now download a digitized version of your vaccination card. It creates a "card" inside the Wallet (where your credit cards are). The card has a scanable QR code to prove you've been vaccinated. Lots of info online how to do it.

R93 here. Got my booster yesterday at 3:45pm , and started feeling a bit funky around 9am. Immediately took 2 Tylenols for arthritis (has the most amount of the active ingredient), and still was a bit dizzy. Repeated at 4pm, and felt better. It’s 8pm and still a little spacey. No sore arm though!

R136, I just read this on the NPR website: "A study by the National Institutes of Health this week suggests people who got the J&J vaccine as their initial vaccination against the coronavirus may get their best protection from choosing an mRNA vaccine as the booster." The Pfizer or Moderna booster may be a better choice for you.

by Anonymousreply 137November 4, 2021 8:31 PM

But I got Pfizer as my initial vaccination, not J&J, r137

by Anonymousreply 138November 4, 2021 8:36 PM

The way to get the most anti-bodies is to start with an adenovirus-vector vaccine (so J&JJ) followed by an mRNA booster (Pfizer or Moderna). This way you get more anti-bodies than sticking to one vaccine type or changing the order starting with mRNA and finishing with viral-vector type.

I got two Pfizers and a Moderna booster.

Had bad body aches the day after the booster and was fatigued for five days after. Today (day six) is the first day I feel back to normal.

I had really intense side effects after the second Pfizer, but they were done after a day or two. The booster side effects were less severe but have lasted longer.

First, 2 doses of Pfizer, then Pfizer booster.

Thought about getting Moderna booster as I read at some point that it was most effective vaccine. Was given a choice but just went with Pfizer as I uncertain about Moderna side effects.

Only side effect has been a bit or soreness in my upper arm.

by Anonymousreply 159November 7, 2021 2:32 PM

For those of you taking the effectiveness of Moderna vs. Pfizer into account with your boosters, you really don't need to. They are both effective. The small difference in numbers was due more to the dosage of the vaccines, not the makeup of the vaccines, which are practically identical. Moderna's original doses were three times that of the Pfizer original doses. So, basically, those who got two shots of Moderna got the equivalent of six doses of Pfizer. The fact that Pfizer was almost as effective as Moderna with only 1/3 the amount shows that Pfizer is powerfully protective.

Now, with the booster, Moderna's dose is halved while Pfizer is getting another full dose. So, they are now even closer in their levels of protection. You're still getting a slightly bigger dose of vaccine if you get Moderna but, if the protection ratio stays the same, you will probably actually be getting equal, or more, protection from a third full dose of Pfizer.

BTW, this is the actual booster. That original second dose we all got should be looked at more like a delayed portion of an initial megadose. The immune system does not work the way it does with boosters with only three weeks or a month between doses. It needs time. There's a reason that all those childhood boosters are anywhere from 6 months to 10 years later in their scheduling. You have to build up the B and T cells for your immune system to work properly. For the most part, that isn't going to happen three weeks after initial exposure.

by Anonymousreply 160November 7, 2021 7:32 PM

So does that mean the booster will generate immunity that lasts longer than six months from now?

by Anonymousreply 161November 7, 2021 9:40 PM

R161, that's what they are thinking but the data will have to wait until the earliest booster recipients have reached that mark. Israel has the highest number of early boosters across the entire population and I believe they started widespread boosters in August. So, we'll know in February for sure if the six month number is lengthened and then we'll have a wait and see to determine just how long it lasts. It is the hope, though, unless there is some huge mutation that makes the virus no longer recognizable to any level of the immune system, that this will lead to a more sustaining immunity.

by Anonymousreply 162November 7, 2021 11:44 PM

Remembering that one wasn't considered "fully vaccinated" until 2 weeks after Dose #2, does it take 2 weeks after the Booster to be considered "fully boosted"?

Now they're saying that you may only get four months of protection from these shots? How many freaking shots can you get until you have permanent side effects? You just simply can't keep cranking out semi effective vaccines an boosters every few months and expect a miracle cure? This acceptable to you?
