I've had both phizer covid vaccinations. no side effects.
I got it because I work in a very busy hospital and I have seen a lot of covid deaths.
I also get the flu shot every year.
felt like it was the right thing to do, based on history and how vaccinations have led to the eradication of diseases.
Right or wrong, it's a step in the right direction.

if it's wrong, how can it be a step in the right direction?
Years ago I got the flu shot. Got horribly ill. Recovering I got exposed to something else floating around. Horrific sore throat fever aches n pains. Hospital over run. An old timey doctor treated me by swabbing my throat with iodine. Two days later, fit as a fiddle. Haven't had a flu shot since. Most every year I get sinuses infection that's it.

Flu shots usually have actual flu in them..... thats why you got sick. The covid shot has ZERO live or killed virus.. Its quite an amazing new technology.

It's the new technology that scares me off, a mRNA vaccine has never been approved by the FDA and I admit I don't know very much about it, but given how fast they made the vaccine and how little testing was done, I am not going to get the vaccine at this time. I don't think I am much of a risk for complications and since there are medicines that are very effective I am not too worried about it. I sure hope in a year or so I look back and laugh at myself for being overly cautious.
No, I never gotten the flu vaccine. I think this vaccine was pushed through to fast and the long term side effects are unknown. I drive school bus and I hardly ever get sick
I would like to take the vaccine but not eligible yet. I will get it as soon as possible. My wife got the second shot a week ago. She works in a hospital so was one of the first in our county to be able to get it. She had a bit of a sore arm on the first dose. The second dose she got a little sick for a couple days as did 2 of her friends that got them. She felt like a bit of a cold and was very tired. Said she felt like she had a fever but didn't actually have a fever. She got the second dose on a thursday. By sat she felt fine. They have given 2000 doses at her hospital. Only side effects they know of are similar to what she had. Most have had none.
I got my 2nd dose of pfizer on Monday the 11th .My husband got his first dose of the pfizer vaccine yesterday ,2nd on Feb 4th. I work in an inpatient rehab and we are beginning to get quite a few "post covis" patients. This is some BAD ****. Some have been hospitilized for MONTHS,on ventilators,ECMO and medically induced comas. They are so very weak. Also as an added bonus,we are noticing post covid patients seem to be prone to PE's .I would rather bear the discomfort from a vaccine for day or 2 than to contract this virus

That's understandable. They did test the vaccine in 44,000 people before it was approved. I think we instinctively fear things we don't understand. I don't fear it because I understand it fairly well. I think it's a brilliant new innovative way to develop vaccines. There's nothing wrong with being concerned about potential "long term" side effects of any new vaccine. At this point, we cannot honestly reassure anyone with any confidence that there are no adverse long term side effects of the Covid vaccine. Over the years, there have been concerns of long term side effects of vaccines, but the overwhelming majority of those concerns were dispelled with subsequent study. Guillain Barre' syndrome, a neurological disorder, is probably the most famous, and that was associated with a swine flu vaccine from the 1970's. The incidence of that was about 1 in 100,000 people who were vaccinated. Most other concerns since then were rare, and subsequent study allayed those fears. I'm still hoping I don't wake up with a third eye. So far, so good.
Have my appointment for Tuesday for my first dose! Looking forward to it! I want to get back in thst classroom!! I'm sick and tired of teaching from home!! Totally done with it.
Mandatory won't happen anytime soon on that subject. I think this vaccine is closer to using the public as test rats. There are test that have been done (I suppose) that I read that copper kills covid 19. The catch is it must touch the bacteria for 30 seconds.so I did a search on anti bacterial copper.you can take liquid copper vitamin or hang anti bacterial copper necklace so you can run your hands with it. Or an anti bacterial nasal instrument for your own personal use.. stating that it kills viruses.I know this is numbers on the news but are the cemeteries really filling up?
