I think I should wait til July and see if new variants start to be covered.

I will not tell anyone what they should do.   I will simply mention that my wife is in ICU right now battling COVID.  She had an already reduced immune system from a very difficult war with cancer she

It seems like it's time to weigh in with my useless  - though not uninformed - opinion. I teach this stuff to medical students. Yeah, I'm a PhD, but one of the smart ones, okay? Lol. Anyway, whil

Those of us holding out will be better off I believe.  If anything they will have it better worked out. 


Agree 100% unless you’re super high risk right now.

With the vaccine being in relatively short supply and appointments tricky to manage, I agree that there is no pressing concern for healthy young folks - nevertheless, from the perspective of societal benefit, it will be important to get as many as possible vaccinated ASAP once our most at-risk have been taken care of.

Less unvaccinated folks means less transmission means less mutation, but it takes a quorum to achieve that so-called "herd immunity".

I know it feels like we're guinea pigs. That's how population health works, though. I truly believe that we are emerging from the worst of it.

Glad I got both shots...got 2nd Pfizer last Sat., Thank God no problems whatsoever.  After seeing one of my best friends, good health at 67, still working go through what he's going through now with the virus- I'm thankful for getting it.  He was in the hospital for 10 days and very sick.  Thank God he finally got home and is starting to improve.

Got the first Moderna shot today.  No issues yet.
Don't wanna scare ya but prepare for a day like no other after the second shot. I hate getting sick and it was no party.

Got my 2nd shot last Saturday. I was perfectly fine for ~16hrs afterwards. Then, developed a mild headache (3/10) and felt tired and exhausted for the next 12hrs, much of which I slept through anyways, but was back to 100% after that. No biggie!

My Sister got her first shot yesterday  in NYC. Today- she was exhausted  and sore.

  My 86 year old Mother gets her 2 d shot April 5th.

 I will wait till early Summer, I  think.

 Meantime- 100mg of Zinc everyday and plenty of powdered Ginger in my daily Yogurt.

The recommended daily amount of zinc is 8 milligrams (mg) for women and 11 mg for adult men.

Nothing beats Ginger and Honey in plain ole' yogurt!! I had that with a handful of nuts mixed in for dessert this evening, Yum, yum.

I will second Chef that most I know did worse on the first Pfizer shot, but their booster was uneventful. Except for the 20-25% that had muscle pain and headaches. But even those generally disappeared fairly quickly. Hopefully those neck pains Phade has will go away soon, too.

Now, I ask you this: how do I get rid of the headaches caused by the job, the government, the daughter, and the self-imposed ones from being an idiot too often? A recent allergy to alcohol doesn't make me like beer any less. Or Glenlivet for that matter...

OH NO!!

  Seriously- Zinc is very important  to the older Man as it increases your Testosterone  Level. And that equals more energy and a more robust immune  system. Also important  because a healthy Prostate needs adequate  Zinc.
