Hello everyone,

I hope you're doing well! emoticon cute

As you all may have heard, there has been discussion both in the US and in other countries about  a COVID-19 vaccine booster vaccine to be potentially launched in the fall, as cases of the Delta variant escalate around the globe.  The CDC has not yet taken a firm stance on necessity of a booster dose, as researchers are still gathering information and learning more about:

  • long-lasting protection of the different vaccines,
  • protection against COVID variants, and
  • further protecting those who may be immunocompromised.

What do you all think about this news? If you were offered a booster shot would you go for it? Do you have any concerns about an additional shot?

Feel free to discuss here!

Take care,
Courtney

I probably would just because I have one of those conditions that put me at a higher risk of catching covid.

I really am not sure I will take it. I tend to lean not to.

I am proactively watching the developments and hopefully soon a direction of the CDC. Without proper knowledge on the subject of infectious diseases, I rely on what is most likely the most scientifically based resource. This is including their assessment of the under vaccinated regions in the USA and the world.

I get a flu shot every year. No sweat getting a Covid booster too.

Hello everyone,

How are you doing?

Two weeks ago, the FDA amended the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine to allow for use of a single booster dose, to be administered at least six months after completion of the first two initial does for:

  • people aged 65+
  • people aged 18-64 years at high risk of severe COVID-19
  • people aged 18-64 years of age whose frequent institutional or occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2 puts them at high risk of serious complications of COVID-19

For now this only applies to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, but may be opened up to other versions as more study is done.

What do you think about this? Are you eligible to get a booster dose? Will you be getting it? Do you have any questions or reservations about it?

Feel free to discuss here!

Take care,
Courtney

When my polumnologist and rheumatologist tell me to get the booster, ai will.

kind of seems simple, follow the science, follow the doctors recommendation

I am on an immunosuppressant that deteriorates my B-Cells.  I need a B-Cell count or else my MS infusion will attack the booster.  I am all for boosters and 3rd doses.  I just got blood drawn and hopefully I will have a count to get the booster.

I am on the list at my pharmacy to get the booster in one arm, the flu shot in the other arm.

I’m afraid to get it because I know people who got vaccinated that multiple myeloma  that got worse. Two people that I know that died from Covid both were vaccinated which really freaked me out. They were supposed to be a vaccine coming out next year  I might consider
