Getting the first shot and avoiding the second shot makes no sense to me.

If the cardiologist tells you they you need two stents, one now and one in two months to get heart healthy, you get the first and say, forget about the second?

If you are going for cancer treatments with a twenty treatment regimen to eradicate your cancer, you wouldn't stop at ten treatments.

it's crazy how bad people are at following instructions. 

yes, some people are just careless and don't care.

but will give the benefit of the doubt and say that having to go out of the way for a 2nd dose, to a location that isn't near you can be a pain. my wife was able to get an appointment in the middle of brooklyn on a weekday (we live in manhattan). i had to take day off from work, twice, to drive there.  at one point we even considered taking appointments in yonkers.  given appointment shortage, people will take any cite just from the pure excitement of securing a spot.

all that being said, one dose is better than nothing.  i read a study that moderna and pfizer, both have 80% efficacy after just one dose.  

we're all going to need boosters 1x a year.  the future will depend on everyone cooperating and getting those yearly follow-ups.

Woke today up feeling like a I had a medium-sized hangover but thats about it.

 

Its amazing how different an experience everyone has with the shot.  I had the 2nd Pfizer shot last Tuesday.  It wasn't crippling but I had mild fever and chills, slight headache for 24-36 hours.  Some aches and pains for another day then I felt fine.

I know some people are hesitant to get the 2nd shot because they don't want to get any symptoms.  All I can say is the 36 hours post 2nd shot were a MUCH better experience than when I had Covid in Feb last year.   



Oh let me elaborate: a medium-sized hangover for me is pretty much how you described your symptoms. 

It just wasn't the Long-Island-Iced-Tea-Mixing-With-Beer-And-Wine hangover of my youth (before I knew how to drink like an adult) that left me in agony the next day afraid to move an inch without pain.

If anyone has doubts about getting the vaccine because this thing is almost over, I just heard a couple of chilling stories.

An appliance repairman came to our house last week and I told him we were fully vaccinated but would wear masks if he preferred.  He teared up and said he buried his dad, who he worked with, the prior week.  His dad received the first vaccine, but went in and out of a lot of houses repairing appliances.   He was feeling better ok at first and then nosedived.

The other story was from a new friend whose family just listed her grandmother's home.  Her grandma lived year on the east end, and last december went to the hospital for something routine,  contracted Covid-19 and never came home.

I had no reactions to either Pfizer dose, and in fact didn't even feel the 2nd injection.

Get the effing vaccine.  Its flat out stupid not to.

Beast of the East,

Thanks, great post, man. There is no reason not to get the vaccine other than a kind of stubborn ignorance that does no one any good. All six people in my family have gotten fully vaccinated with the worst reaction being minor flu symptoms and sore shoulders. A no brainer.
