I will get the flu shot but to be determined on COVID due to the pressure to get it rushed thru.
If it comes out before the end of this year unless it is mandatory at my work I will wait a little bit to see because a rushed vaccine could be terrifying.
what would a little bit tell you that the trial data wouldn’t?
I don't trust anything coming from this government there is no way they could test and acquire all the necessary data they need in that amount of time.
Trump isn’t in there with a lab coat on. But I guess my question is , if you have given the shot to 30,000 people and you have the side effects from that trial, what difference does waiting til February make to you?
My thought is you’d either be concerned that the vaccine was formulated too fast or not.
long term side effects won’t be known after a little bit.
I want to see people I know and trust look into it, and see what my pharmacy colleagues say about it.
Trump eroding confidence in things like the FDA and CDC is real neat
Got my flu shot two weeks ago and I’m waiting on a second screening to see if I can get into the Pfizer Covid trial.
I’ve posted on the same message board for a decade; I’m not scared
I'm interested to see how the flu season goes with a lot of people wearing masks. Virtually no one wore a mask out during previous seasons, now there's a lot. Also a lot of office workers still not in offices.
Will be something to watch
It would be interesting if this was the new norm for flu season or something
Skeleton crews in office environments? "But mah productivity!!!"
I meant the masks
I think masks may stick around for a lot of the people that are taking the masks seriously. We'll be wearing them through the Spring at least so they'll be pretty normalized by then. It'll hopefully just take a little push by the media to inform people that masks will help a lot during cold+flu season.
I get a flu shot ever year because I’m a responsible adult. Also I work in retail pharmacy.
More people are coming in and asking if we have it instead of having to beg people to get it so I can hit my quota.
This is true and Sept /Oct is going to be insane
Got it Friday
And you chose to bump this thread about it 5 days later. Interesting.
got one today. little sore but fortunately for you all got it in my non-posting arm
Got mine without leaving the car a few weeks ago. 10/10 would get stabbed by that cute pharmacy student again.
This years injection comes with a microchip that Bill gates uses to track us from his house
Got mine last week. Usually don’t because I work from home, am single and live alone, but figured I should change that policy this year
Got mine on Sunday.
Just ask your pharmacist to take the chip out before they give you the shot #lifehack
I should do that as a joke this weekend when I get mine to see what they say
Just whored out my wife and I’s right arm out to the Billinda Gates foundation for $20 in publix gift cards.
Getting the flu shot took all of 5 mins. I love it when a plan comes together.
Got mine today. I’m already a socialist.
Got my flu and TDAP on the same day in the same arm
Was going to get it today after work but Kroger said I had a 1-1.5 hour wait, so I just went home and scheduled an appointment for 9:30 am tomorrow
getting mine today. Notre Dame is requiring all students to get one this year, which I had never seen before. and all staff and faculty are *strongly* encouraged to get one. they turned the football stadium (which is currently a COVID-19 testing unit) into a flu vaccine blitz zone.
Getting mine Monday during my physical
Got my flu shot as my 1 year old was getting his and 6 other shots
Got one yesterday. Definitely don’t want the flu after having Covid.
Got the flu shot Monday, came down with a cold yesterday. Thanks Obama.
Got mine last friday.
a cold is nothing compared to your impending autism
jokes on you, I already have autism.
Got mine today
My wife has Lupus and Kidney disease so I’m really hoping that people like her can get first shots(no pun intented) when and/if the Covid vaccines are released.
I’m trying to figure out how these companies are simulating time for these COVID vaccines. Last I saw only one company was considering human challenge for their trial.
Haven’t ever gotten one, but feels like I ought to this year. Only time I’ve ever gotten the flu was H1N1 in 2009, thing knocked me on my ass which wasn’t easy to do to 20 year old me.
I’ve never gotten one, my daughter (17) who has juvenile arthritis got one this year. I get the flu about every 5 years or so, I’m always leery because it seems like they miss the strain all the time.
Need to pull the trigger this year....
I’ve gotten the flu shot every year since I got it probably around 8-9 years ago. Had it bad, sidelined for like two weeks and went to the hospital. Fuck dealing with that shit again. Know the flu shot isn’t guaranteed to prevent it but I’m not taking my chances.
First time flu shotter checking in. Shout out out Publix for paying me to get one
Do you need any sort of call ahead with Publix or just show up? Wasn't sure what they were doing with everything else going on
Should just be able to show up. I’m sure they are less busy than normal.
Please do your pharmacist a favor and call a head or if you can make an appt online. Pharmacies are busy as fuck right now and anything you can do to help out would be greatly appreciated. Our working conditions fucking suck and if you can do any thing to make your pharmacy team's life less hectic, please do so.
