I would like to know why the hell people would turn it down, after spending a year getting bounced around not able to do much, no entertainment options available, travel at a standstill, and having to fistfight a 90 year old for the last roll of toilet paper. Are you afraid the vaccine will make it so you lose the fistfight with the 90 year old? I got both shots, Pfizer. The first one made me dead tired about 45 minutes after getting it. The next day I was fine. Second shot I was fine for exactly 12 hours. Then I woke up with chills, sweats, aches all over. At 7 I took my battered ass to the store and bought Tylenol fast release gels and within 40 minutes I felt a ton better. So I went to sleep, got up at 11:30, took more Tylenol and started working. Lucky for me, I'm still working from home. We may find out that's ending at a company wide meeting tomorrow.

Id like to wait and see a few more months of data. 

Not the same i know but ive never had a flu shot 

My life really hasn't changed outside of wearing a mask inside the store and until i sit down at a restaurant.

I have no issue with somebody wanting to be safe.  Also with you saying you've never had a flu shot, I can see why you'd hesitate.  But let me put it this way - what happens if you are "the one".  The odds of you getting covid are higher than the odds of you getting sick or worse with the vaccine.  Let's say you are "that guy" that really has no underlying conditions yet contracts such a severe case of covid that you die.  Where does that leave your family.  That's the point I am trying to make with getting vaccinated - if I was just a single guy that had no living parents and was just doing my own thing, I would not care too much about things.  But my parents are 85, and I don't want to get them sick and kill them.  And if I get sick and die, my wife is all alone, my dog would be really upset, and my kids are adults now but still would be really gutted if I died.  So I figured if the odds are one in a million or more that the vaccine would kill you, it wasn't so risky.  If I had won the lottery at one point in my life I may think differently, but those odds are so high that I just don't worry that they will get me.  But also - you aren't refusing a shot, you simply want to wait to get more info.  Good luck with getting the info that you want.  Also I never wanted a flu shot until I saw my wife get the flu.  If I hadn't gotten her to the doctor when I did, she wouldn't have been able to take the tamiflu.  With tamiflu, she was bedridden for five full days, but on the sixth day she was able to be up and around.  They said without it, she was looking at 10-14 days of really bad illness.  This was 2018 and I haven't missed a shot since.

Well, Jan had her second Moderna shot Thursday and got sicker with it than the first one, which as I've said before, almost got me to take her to the emergency room. She said that's it for her, she won't take it again if it's a yearly thing and honestly, I can't blame her..

Because my doctor said if you have a massive reaction to either shot, it more than likely means you had COVID but were asymptomatic and your system is reacting accordingly.  I don't know if that's fact, or just more bullshit, but I can't imagine that the boosters are going to be two part shots, nor have anywhere near as much of an impact on the body.  I would think they will be more like flu shots -  and you may have a rough few hours the day after.  But if what you are saying is true that the sickness almost got you to go to the ER, I would think that Jan may have some sort of allergy to it.  My son and my wife both had to sit for 30 minutes instead of 15 because they are allergic to penicillin.

The first one like I said with her was so bad I almost took her to the hospital. She was told then by the CDC (who she tried to contact for almost a week before someone got back to her) and her doctor if she had it that bad with the first one, her second one should be much less complicated. It was worse with the only difference being she wasn't throwing up this time. She took it at noon on a Thursday, that Sat I got her out of the house for a while and walking out to the truck she got dizzy and almost fell down. It was Monday before she started feeling normal again. So she got the shot and had 2 days where she felt like death and another 4-5 where she felt sick like she was coming off the flu. She's 48 and fit and healthy, looking at the odds she's much better off never taking any vaccine again and just taking her chances with covid IF she gets it..

Pfizer says FDA could authorize its COVID vaccine for 12 to 15 year olds next week. We have been waiting for this at our house. Even though my wife and I have been vaccinated, we have still been living life under lockdown since we are concerned about getting COVID and passing it to our 12 year-old son.


I suspect that a lot of households where the adults have been vaccinated will refuse getting their children vaccinated though due to the newness and lack of long-term safety data of the vaccine. To be honest, this has been one of the hardest decisions that I have had to make about my child since he was born and I am still not 100% decided.

Yep, this one is a REALLY hard decision, and I'm questioning why the media is all of sudden pushing for this so hard. In Chicago, they're talking about vaccinating kids before the end of the school year (like, in the next month. What?). Just thinking this through, our son is the same age as yours. The incidences of Covid in children are almost zero. There are a handful of outliers throughout the country, but kids just don't get this or have any ill effects if they do. I wouldn't hesitate if this was FDA approved, but we're not even at the "emergency approval for kids" stage yet. Really not sure about this one.

There's a media push to get everyone vaccinated?

No way.

Even after googling, I'm still not sure if alcohol affects the efficacy of the vaccine or not.
I drank  a few days after each shot. I'll let you guys know if I get covid anytime soon.

I haven’t heard anyone advise against drinking. I never even thought of that. I got my 2nd Pfizer shot today, but I drank last night so taking tonight off.

They told a co-worker that drinking could magnify the side effects after a shot, because heavy alcohol use could impact immune system. Alcohol would have no impact on the actual efficacy of vaccine.


They tell you too keep hydrated the hours and night after the shot. Heavy drinking dehydrates a person so maybe that would be the reason on side effects.

Got my 2nd jab yesterday and other than waking up with a slight headache and a sore arm, I feel absolutely fine.
