    Covid19 Pfizer booster

    So I got the booster on Wed. Ugh! Soooo many side effects! fever, swelling, nausea, fluttery heart, arm is still throbbing, 55 hours later. First shot, sore arm for half hour the next day. Second shot, extremely low energy the next day. Third… horrible. I will not be getting another, no matter what.

    My arm was sore for over a week from the booster… otherwise no problems.

    The people in the Third World and the World Health Organization thank you. I wonder if there's some karma in this type of reaction to boosters, a payback as it were for American exceptionalism.

    That was pretty nasty, Jeppy. I suppose we should also feel guilty for having enough to eat while children are starving in other countries.

    I had the usual sore arm, but I also had a bit of itchiness and hives near the injection site that didn't last long.

    Oh don't worry, I don't expect to induce guilt in anyone for any of their privileges.

    Just as no one expects you to ever acknowledge the privilege of living in a state that has taken covid seriously.

    A state that is doing worse than Florida now according to the CDC - not exactly a privilege.

    Where you live restrictions are being dropped. The positivity rate in my city is now below 5% but the zealots are becoming even more draconian.

    My mother and a couple of my siblings got theirs with no issues that they mentioned. Isn't there something about making sure you get the same booster as you got the shots? For example, I got Moderna, so I should wait for the Moderna booster - not get the Pfizer booster. Thought I had read that somewhere.

    The science seems to show that mixing vaccines promotes more robust immune responses. Stay tuned.

    Interesting. I imagine as more of the boosters are given out, while doing what they are supposed to be, they are still being studied.
