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?

It's a virus, not a bacteria. This is why it's good to listen to people who have devoted their entire lives to studying these things It's also mainly transmissible by air, not surfaces. And yes, the cemeteries are really filling up. Be grateful if you don't personally know someone who has died from this.

Anthony Fauci is accreditted as studying viruses his complete adult life.................yet has flip flopped and wobbled on public information since the beginning of this situation. Fact!
Something to think about, from the Spanish Flu of the early 20th Century, there was an uptick in bacterical pnuemonia (I believe this is the correct ailment). Historical Research indicates it was brought on by the wearing of masks...........................A medical reseach paper was written about this historical event by none other than Anthony Fauci.
But, what do I know? I am just a red headed fatman with a penchant for reading...............
My boss took the first shot and shes been off work for bout 5-6 days now bc she sick from the shot. I know 2 people after the 2nd shot they was really fatigue about 2-3 days and really sore in the arm a couple days. and I know some no effect at all.
I dont want the vaccine.
I have already been sick from covid, I am bout 2 weeks with no symptoms. I did test positive. so I for sure dont want vaccine this soon bc Im sure my immunity not back up where it needs to be.
As far as manadtory, my friend works at a doctors office (orpeditic) they told her if she doesnt take the vaccine and she gets covid they are not paying her or use her sick leave. So she took it.
Bear what research supports which one is better for people who have had reactions to flu shots? I'm so torn on this situation especially if it becomes mandatory for a life
I have an appointment for the first shot on the 29th. I am one of those with lung issues that would be at significant additional risk if I got Covid, so the choice was easy for me. As a trained Biochemist, I probably have a better than average understanding of the function of this new technology. In my case, and I speak only for myself, I am comfortable with taking this due to my overall additional risk factors. Your results may vary.

I'm not aware of any differences between the Moderna versus Pfizer vaccines in people with a history of "reactions" to flu shots. Basically, anyone with a history of an "immediate reaction" to any vaccine or anyone who has had an anaphylactic reaction to any medication should not get the vaccine. Now if you had a flu shot and felt crappy over the next 24 hours, but did not experience some kind of immediate reaction, I wouldn't think getting a Covid vaccine is contraindicated. I do know that most of the unpleasant side effects happen after the second shot. Moderna has something like 8-10% incidence of things like aching muscles and joints, headache, and low grade fever, etc... Pfizer seems to have a lower incidence...maybe half that of Moderna. If you take all the possible side effects, including a sore arm, then the incidence overall may be as high as 15%. Bottom line is that if you have specific questions about contraindications or your past history, you should ask your doc. I got the Moderna vaccine, but won't get the second vaccine for another 12 days or so.
I am not getting the covid vaccine. My employer offered it to all muncipial employees and the majority also refused to get it. It takes years to research and develop a vaccine and the powers that be certainly did not take that amount of time to put it out there. No thanks...
