Yeah, I will soon, I'm a medic. Probably the Pfizer stuff so that's what I clicked. I've been watching the local campaign and basically nobody has any serious adverse effects yet. I familiarized myself with the tech and talked to other medics (I distrust corporations and governments just as much as everyone else), and the general consensus is that if correctly administered, at least the Moderna/Pfizer/AstraZeneca stuff should be relatively safe.

You guys need to understand that all medical procedures and substances have potential adverse effects, we still use them, it's always a game of benefit vs risk. We give opiates for pain. Antibiotics can provoke serious allergies and shock, far more often than vaccines, yet we use them excessively often. Hell, pollen can send one in shock. A bee sting can kill you.

So yeah, I'll take the vaccine, it's hardly such a huge deal for me, my whole family gets the seasonal flu vax each year basically, for almost 2 decades now. I know very well that there is an insane amount of distrust in medicine right now, for causes I don't want to mention as they're controversial and political and inappropriate for a tech forum. The correct approach is not to abandon medicine and science in general, but to help cleanse it of ideologues and profiteering corporations.

But decide for yourselves what the risk vs benefit  are for you. Just make sure you at least try to hear the side of (actual) science, again, I can't say more, but you should be able to notice when it's neutral science or ideological, poisonous science.

Good post @random, sensible and clearly stated. The difference between this and other vaccination campaigns,

e.g. measles, chickenpox, influenza etc, is that this will be a massive vaccination of each country's population.

I have colitis which is considered an auto immune disease like arthritis or dermatitis your body is attacking its self.  They have me on a common medication that lowers my immune system. So now  I'm considered immunocompromised which makes me possibly  more vulnerable to 

having a bad case if I was to catch the virus.

To anyone that thinks that you can compare this to the flu I have a close relative that's a top  Infectious Disease Specialist working out of one of the top hospitals  in a major city for over 40yrs. He told me they had over 10 freezer trucks out side the hosp. to store the over flow of bodies said he never seen anything like it before in all his years of being a doctor said no way you can compare this to the flu .

I'm ready to get this vaccine as soon as possible hoping my immune system issue will allow me to get it sooner then later .

Took the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vax this morning together with a bunch of other hospital personnel. Though I'd let you guys know, y'know, information and stuff. Make it easier on you to make a choice if you want it or not.

Side effects: mild muscular pain at the site of injection, a bit of an inflammatory reaction/heat in the area. No systemic effects, just local, after 17 hrs or so. A few other colleagues have the same symptoms. One is also fatigued as if catching a cold. Another complained about a more serious post-injection pain, radiating in the muscle, that gets more noticeable as you move the arm. Adverse reactions seem to be somewhat common, and from my small batch of people I took it with, occurring more often than the 1/10 mentioned in the prospect. Worth mentioning that flu shots have had no adverse effects for me yet, so yes that's a difference.

Other than that, not much to say. You get a small brochure and a vaccine certificate, but they have identifying data and they're in my native tongue so I didn't bother posting. 

Made sure that there would be a second dose waiting after 21 days, and there will be. Was worried because some occidental governments decided to go against the Pfizer recommendations and use just one dose/delay the second one until there are enough vaccines to inoculate more people, which I am against as the studies were performed in a specific way and maximizing the efficiency of a rather experimental drug is not something I am willing to play with.

All good, life moves forward, nobody had to take the day off work or anything, there's a special website to report/study the adverse reactions, and there will be studies watching out for potential long term effects for 2 years.

@random, you're right about the "going against the Pfizer recommendations...". I keep up to date with my family in the UK and with the on-line newspapers

and I was a bit shocked that the politicians there have decided to change the original plan that they trumpeted. The original plan was supposed to be aimed at the

most vulnerable (front line medical/hospital workers and elderly people with no underlying health problems) and given in two doses 3 weeks apart. Now they've decided

at the last minute to use the vaccine supply to give the first dose to as many people as possible and then give the second dose up to 12 weeks later.!!!

Medical staff who had already had the first dose and had their second dose appointment date were sent emails telling them not to come for their appointment and that

they'd receive an email later telling them of their new date.!! Politicians interfering in medical matters. Who knows how effective a second dose will be if it is administered

well out of the time range in which the trialists received theirs. There's also talk of mixing two different Coronavirus vaccines!! I don't believe that was done during the trials.

I'm not one of the looney tunes conspiracy brigade who say that Coronavirus doesn't exist...it does. I trust the doctors but I just don't trust politicians, not left, right or centre!!! They are

all self-serving, self-promoting, expert liars and will say whatever is necessary for their advantage, and I think that's why so many people will refuse to be vaccinated.:dunno::dunno::dunno:

Here in Germany, the situation is quite special, I mean I am not in scope to be vaccinated. Nevertheless, as I am working from home, not sure if it's worth it to do it asap or if it's better to wait... What do you think guys?

I have been told that 10 years from now people who got the shot will turn into zombies.  I got the vaccine and my brother who is a cop did not.  Well my brother promised me that if I turn, he will gladly shoot me in the head.  Remember, according to the zombie movies the quickest way to kill a zombie is a head shot!

I had MODERNA vaccine and the second dosis sent me to be for two days. Now I am waiting for the third, MODERNA BOOSTER.

 

I know thet they are not full prove but my probabilities of getting COVID decrease, I hope.

I am 72 I have had jabs 1 & 2 and am lined up for number 3 Booster next Saturday, which I hope will be Pfizer, My 46 year old son who is even more disabled than I am has had the same and is also lined up for the Booster he has a highly compromised immune system because of Four different type of Rheumatism (I only have two) but they have him on some magic new anti Rheumatism drug thats worth £5 - 10 thousand a year dependant on dosage the dose he is on is the higher one (at his age he is waiting on two new hips and one knee at the moment he also has Claw hands look it up its nasty) basically I am the fittest of the two of us and I am caring for him. We both have to have the Covid jabs as we are both high risk me especially because if I get it he cannot care for himself.

 

Those of you Not getting the jabs are in my opinion very selfish because your not only exposing yourselves your also more chance of becoming a carrier and giving it to your elderly relatives  do you love your parents or Grandparents if so get the jabs for their sake if not your own.

Nope.. you still have the same chance of getting it as everyone else.. the injections are only meant to make the "disease" less harmful to  everyone who has them.

or where the virus may put you in the hospital.. because of the jabs. you may not need the hospital

 

The OWL you got lucky.. i had a migrain for 24hrs. but i guess different people different side effects..

Vaccinated with 2 dosis of AstraZeneca since July.

No secondary effect, no headache, nothing at all ... maybe I'm lucky !

 

Waiting for the third dosis (booster) but not before Januray (6 months after the 2nd one).

And in France that will be with Pfizer only.

Vaccinated with Moderna second shot made me sick as a dog for over a week fever chills and the worst head ache I ever had in my life felt like my head was going to explode for days 

Maybe  I'll have better luck with Pfizer for my third ?

I got my first Pfizer dose on 2nd June and a second Pfizer dose on 30th June. 

I'm 66 years old and lucky to have reasonably good health. I've never smoked and

have drunk less alcohol in my life than other Scots drink in a weekend.

I had absolutely no side effects from the Pfizer vaccine (except that my wife seems to be making sense!!! lol) and I'm due a third dose at

the end of November/beginning of December.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
