The FDA is not a company.

Yes, but Fauci has stock....or something.

Moderna booster last week. I had the J&J back in March. 

After the booster, my arm was pretty sore for 3 days. I felt off for a day, then back to normal.

I had the Pfizer and Flu shot on Friday night. I was miserable for about 36 hours.   From about 12 hours after the shot to 48 hours after. I had chills, body aches, and fatigue. It was 100x worse then my second shot. Oh Well I’m done for atleast another 6 months lol. I do need a tetanus shot though ugh.

Actually really helpful.  I'm sure it will be studied, and I don't know why it could be an issue but I'm not going to mix the flu and booster shot!

My parents both got Pfizer booster and flu shot on Sunday. One day of being dead tired. That's it.

i'll get it but only because my company is giving $650 bonuses to get the booster and/or get vaccinated.

They taking applications?  I need some Christmas cash.

Was at Walmart tonight so I said "what the Hell, let's see if I can get my booster." I asked the lady at the pharmacy if I qualified and she said "don't worry, we're giving the boosters to anyone who wants them." Had my second Pfizer back in April. Opted for the Moderna today. So far, getting chills but not much else.

Any reason you went for Moderna when you had the Pfizer first?

Just heard it was a more effective cocktail. Not sure if true or not.

I think I'll go that route as well.

If they don't have Pfizer, I guess I'll go with Moderna or even J&J.

If I have a choice, I'll stick with Pfizer.  I suppose it probably won't matter, but if I stick with Pfizer then I'm in a cohort where the original trial participants are 6+ months ahead of me in the regimen.  If I get a Moderna booster, then I'm in a brand new cohort with a much shorter history.

I was vaccinated with Moderna, and for now rather not play around with the mix & match method until we see a larger sample of real life data on it.  It sucks, because there is plenty of Pfizer supply here, but Moderna won't be in until the end of November.  I am scheduled for the last day of November.  I was hoping to get it before traveling on Thanksgiving week, but oh well. 

Italy also is now mandating their green pass for boosters for 65+ year olds.  It's only a matter of time they apply this to everyone.

Germany basically mandating it for everyone.

I'm kind of surprised Putin hasn't secretly injected everyone in Russia... 



Or did he?

Got Moderna back in December/January, got Pfizer yesterday. Pharmacist said it wasn’t a big deal and that CDC said it was fine to mix. More importantly, I was too lazy to cancel the appointment and go search out a place giving Moderna. 

Anyways, no ill effects other than sore arm.
