Getting My Covid Vaccine

If there is no such correlation then the vaccine does not work.

None of the vaccines contain the Covid virus, unlike traditional vaccines. The side effects are due to the response of the immune system, which is wired differently in each person. With traditional vaccines your theory might be correct, because your body is reacting to a weakened version of the virus, but that's not the case with covid vaccines. Also, I've heard many reports from people who were asymptomatic or had a mild reaction to Covid but had an awful time after getting the vaccine. Maybe there is something to your theory, but that would need to be scientifically researched.

Ouch. Sorry to hear that Farnaby. You didn't get lucky with this one.

I also got my 1st shot of the Pfizer vaccine recently....  it was exactly 7 days ago.

I got a sore arm for 2 days, and very very mild headache few hours after the shot. No fever. But my nose has been running slightly since then and my throat is a tad painful. Seems like my tonsils are a bit inflated. Also I've got a bit of a wet cough.

So perhaps you'll have also these extra symptoms popping up. 

One must say- this Covid virus is a strange one. The variety of potential effect is astonishing.

Yep, not lucky at all. I feel a lot better, although the gut issues persist. I've also noticed a mild need to cough if I inhale deeply. I hope you feel better soon :)

I'm just scared of the needle that's all.

 

 

The needle is barely noticeable. Most people don't feel anything, I felt a little sting but there are many many other things that hurt a lot more that you have probably endured (bee stings, knife cut, touching something that burns). To give you an example, hitting your foot toe against something hurts wayyyy more. The needle is just a one second sting.

The whole basis of a vaccine is similarity between the virus and the stuff you got your antibodies from.

If you react poorly to the vaccine, chances are high you will react even worse to Covid.

Of course it's not a perfect correlation, it's gonna be statistical.

The mRNA vaccines are literally producing pieces of the virus inside your body.

Really ?

The mRNA contained in the vaccines codes for the Covid19 spike protein. Any mRNA that enters a cell will cause that cell to produce those spike proteins and place them in their cell membranes.

@Leo Gura Agree, but we also have to take into account that our mucous membranes give us another layer of protection against foreign intruders thanks to immune cells that have been "trained" with years of exposure to everything in the air, thus giving us less probability of getting covid. But if we inject the mRNA directly inside our bodies, that layer is bypassed.

Are you saying this is a good or bad thing?  
I’ve heard no bad press about the Pfizer or moderna but a lot of bad press around the others like Astra and Johnson.  I don’t know what is the right choice.

No. It is what it is. There is always a risk.

@Thunder Kiss We have been taking vaccines for literally hundreds of years now. They are generally safe. Safer than a lot of medications that might have nasty side effects. I don't know why people are making a fuss about taking this vaccine.  Vaccines are one of the most amazing medical innovations and are generally very safe.

The number of cases in the US have now become worst than it was last summer. I fear that the Fall will be even worse because the cold weather will exacerbates the COVID transmission further. Afterwards, we might have another dark winter that's even worse than the dark winter we just went through.:(

Information from the CDC on mRNA vaccines.

"New Approach to Vaccines"

"mRNA vaccines are a new type of vaccine to protect against infectious diseases. To trigger an immune response, many vaccines put a weakened or inactivated germ into our bodies. Not mRNA vaccines. Instead, they teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers an immune response inside our bodies. That immune response, which produces antibodies, is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus enters our bodies."

@Leo Gura I might get vaccinated in few weeks but still needle fear:(

The Covid needle doesn't hurt. I could barely feel it.

I am getting my first shot next week.

But this is a little discouraging :-/

Yeah, its the same with Moderna (which I got 2 doses), it's disappointing, but with the Hepatitis B vaccine it is a round of 3 injections, so oh well. It is what it is, it hasn't been fda approved yet, but if they approve it I'm sure I'll get the booster. Why not, I'm starting to like my fluffy tail. 😉😂
