Iím not ok with any of them.... not enough time to test for side effects and I have health issues which landed me in hospital last year and have never been identified but autoimmune related... so Iíll stay home for a second year until there is more information

Princess and luvcharles: this is why the rest of us who can get the vaccine are and shouldó herd immunity to protect those who canít or shouldnít get the vaccine. Weíre here to protect you.



Thanks for the feedback 🥰 I think everyone needs to take advice and make a decision according to it ... Iím not wanting to compromise the health of others so wonít go out much and all as it limits my life.... but my choice at this time... I can have food delivered and will watch lots of replay shows on tv 📺

Take comfort that they have been developing this vaccine for years because they're building it off of previous ones. They didn't start from scratch!

No comfort... these vaccines were designed to hopefully deal with the virus as it was understood at the time but not the current variants ... so imo more time is needed to understand the effects on people that have health conditions... Iím not on board with the so called reassuring words with politicians who have an agenda to peddle... in Australia we are coming up for another election and it is clear we are being told ďthe party lineĒ my GP tells me to listen to medical advice and not anything else

What you say about the strains is true Princess.

I just read that comedian Bill Maher and 8 members of The Yankees baseball team have tested positive for Covid after being vaccinated.  The only real comfort is the symptoms are much milder and you have a lower chance of dying if youíre vaccinated.

Yes, the vaccination doesnít prevent you from contracting covid or infecting someone else. It does, however, minimize the symptoms so the hospitals are not overrun like they currently are.

Australia's rollout is painfully slow and limited but I have had my first Astra Zeneca. So have my husband, mother and sisters. Minimal side effects.

Here in NY, we have vaccinated 8.2 million, with 42.11%  of the population fully vaccinated and 50.88%  having had the first dose. Here is the official breakdown of numbers state by state https://www.beckershospit...vid-19-shot-april-22.html. Personally, I had it the second it opened to me, as has the Duke. Juliet gets hers the day after tomorrow when we get home from college pick up. Everyone I know has had Pfizer. I had absolutely no effects of either shot. The Duke felt seasick for about an hour after the second dose. The only person I know who was really knocked down by it had had the virus pretty badly a few months ago. They had to lay down for a day or two.

Mom, sister, and I all got Pfizer while dad got Moderna. 

Mom had a vasovagal syncope thing immediately after the first shot which her GP attributed to her stress about wanting all of us the get the shot followed by relief after we all had started the process.  She was fine within 15 minutes and I bought her ice cream as a reward. 

After the second shot...mom was fine, sister felt flu like on the day after, and I had a migraine on the day after...otherwise we were all fine.  Honestly I donít remember how dad did as his second shot was on my migraine day and the next day was when all the drama with Moose started.  To be honest dad is a very typical guy...weak AF about things like vaccine reactions.

Lucky you.

My GP isn't participating in the roll out. I have tried to book with some others and been told 'after we have totally vaccinated all our existing patients we will take on new patients so probably early next year'. As for the 'vaccination hub' in Sydney I tried to book there and was told 'you are not eligible to book at this centre'. It is about 10 minutes by car from where I live and I am 2a so I don't know what their criteria is but ... I will wait now until next year to get the jab it seems.

I'm being vaccinated this afternoon!  Banana Probably with the Pfizer jab.

Happy and a bit nervous but the vaccination center is at the local fire station. So many handsome firemen all around if I 'm not feeling well afterwards

 Hug I had my second jab (Pfitzer) last Friday. After hearing a lot of stories ... I had no side effects whatsoever. If I had been in a test, I would have sworn that I would have gotten placbo. Hope it is the same for you. My 84 year old that was the same ... (different day).

I had the AstraZeneca yesterday. I was expecting nil reaction like my sister, but Iíve had a bad and intense reaction- headache, joint pain, extreme fatigue and what feels like the worst flu ever. Itís horrible!
