Got my 1st shot of Pfizer last Wednesday. Soreness in the arm for a couple of days as the only side effect. CVS schedules both shots at the same time so I get my second on the 26th. Was never more excited about getting a shot.
I got a Pfizer/BioNTech, but I absolutely agree with you: The vaccine I recommend is the one that is offered to you!I got my Johnson & Johnson shot. So far so good. A sore arm and just a little fatigue for only one day and now I feel great.
Comparing efficacy for this vaccine to the others is really apples and oranges. They were tested under very different conditions with different strains of the virus out and about. For hospitalizations and deaths, it is equal to the others. Frankly, I took the first one I could get and I'm glad I did.
Like everything else in this pandemic; nobody knows anything for certain. Don't sweat it; do your part: wear a mask properly; get in line for your jab - don't be silly and say "I don't want to jump the line" or "I could get one but I want to wait for my spouse" (Both from clergy members, by the way.) Everyone needs the vaccine and the faster we get it in arms the sooner we can knock it back.IA friend said if you don't have a reaction, it isn't working - I say that it just means my immune system is working well.
