No one has any idea at all.
Are the strong side effects from the vaccines due to mRNA, or more to the fact that it’s novel?
does JJ show similar side effects?
It's the protein that the mRNA codes for, your body already naturally will eliminate foreign RNA it sees (e.g. a virus trying to infect you) so a ton of the work in this technology went into getting these pieces of mRNA to properly be stable inside a lipid bubble that can properly fuse with your cells iirc. I haven't looked it up, but I bet for J&J the few trial patients who did get two shots probably had a more intense reaction on the second if it was within a month.
I'm sure pperc could correct me if I'm wrong here, but my guess is that mRNA vaccines could give a stronger second reaction because they wind up expressing a lot more spike protein overall (thus driving a stronger immune response, especially on the second shot) than what you may get in a J&J vaccine.
It's not entirely clear. Being novel a priori doesn't mean bad. Some may be due to the lipid nanoparticle as well.
Just got my second Pfizer shot. So damn excited.
I’m number 1,047 on a wait list in case someone doesn’t show up. Not too encouraging, but maybe I’ll get a call one day this month.
most patients who got shingrix vaccinations say shingrix was worse than Covid vaccinations in terms of side effects ftr fwiw FYI gbr nfm
Do I believe the report that they think there will be enough vaccines for all adults by end of May?
I'm predicting earlier than that, late April or early May for all adults that want one.
Wow, as someone who’s pessimistic brain was preparing for late summer/early fall...April or May would be amazing.
Clinic down the street from work might have extra vaccines at the end of the day. I had covid about 4 weeks ago. If I am offered one, is there any reason not to get it?
Where did you get on a wait list
Vaccine breakthrough cases now all the rage. State health dept wanting us to report any cases.
Turns out 90% is not 100%. Who knew.
Arkansas getting 24,000 J&J vaccines by end of this week.
Can’t wait to see bertwing interviewed on Newsmax wearing a generals helmet, pushing a shopping cart filled with 2000 vials of the vaccine.
Instead of the word they, it helps to think of it as the word we. We think we will have enough vaccines by end of May!
Potentially a strong immune reaction with such a recent infection. Ideally you’d wait another 8 weeks. And then getting 1 dose may be sufficient, but for now plan on 2.
Thanks, appreciate it
Is the immune response/side effects as severe with the J&J vaccine compared to Moderna and Pfizer?
Cahaba Medical Center in Alabama.
Walmart seems to be the main retailer offering waste prevention lists from what I’ve seen
Keep forgetting who it was but someone on here got his first shot a couple of weeks after being diagnosed. He had a very intense reaction after shot 1.
Reinfections are so uncommon within 90 days it’s reasonable to wait 3 months or 12 weeks ish to start series.
Getting my first Pfizer shot next Thursday. It will be 9 weeks out from a very mild case. Hoping I don't get super sick but I have the next 3ish days off of work just in case.
Now Biden saying enough vaccinations for every American by the end of May. Unequivocally great news.
Same question as before regarding kids and vaccines. What are we doing with 300 million full vaccination doses when we don’t have that many adults and children will need different vaccines?
Maybe some get thrown away like what has been happening. The J&J are only 1 dose vaccines, so that could change the calculus, but who knows.
Man this second shot is kinda wrecking me. I felt fine yesterday all day, but I woke up in the middle of the night last night with chills, body aches, and extreme fatigue.
It sucks, but at least I know it's doing its job. I'm sure I'll feel a ton better tomorrow.
Pain is temporary. Immunity is less temporary.
So with Abbott being dumbass Abbott, Im starting to look into getting the vaccine asap. I think I just need to accept it will be a couple months until me (a non-risk population guy) will be able to get it...
A lot of speculation that it may be closer to one month rather than two with how many people may opt-out and manufacturing increases. You can also look into volunteering at a site for a day where you'd get vaccinated at the end of the day.
Sounds like my pattern. I felt fine when I woke up the next morning.
Is that an option? Damn!
I might do that.
It will depend on the area. I know in Louisville if you volunteer, you have to volunteer for 40 hours before you are eligible for the vaccine.
Yeah I've no idea what's going on in Austin (think hood b. goode still lives there), but we've seen several posters here in different states volunteer and get a shot at the end of the day.
It is some places. My roommate gave a few shots as a volunteer nurse and got hers. They were prioritizing medical volunteers over non-medical volunteers but I'm sure every place is different. Definitely worth a look.
Lol I am volunteering for 3 hours and am supposed to get it.
I’m high risk in mid 30’s in Texas and still unable. Last update I saw for Dallas county was 55+ with health risks.
But you're in the foreign country of Alaska where you're probably trading seal blubber or something.
Twice as big as Texas and twice as fast at vaccinating.
But y’all don’t need the fancy freezers, you can just set the vials in the snow
Shit, they could do that in texas like 2 weeks ago.
Getting my first shot tomorrow. Neither of my parents had any reactions but every person is different.
Are there any medications you should/shouldn’t take if you’re feeling like crap from it? I’ve seen people mention Benadryl is okay if you have a fever.
Afterward you are probably fine, but in general my advice is don’t be a pussy and just deal with post-vaccine symptoms without meds.
alcohol, weed and meth absolutely fine though.
are there any restrictions on giving blood around the shots? First shot is 3/5 then 3/26 or 4/2 depending on what I get. Blood drive is 3/17. Should I just pass?
Honestly no idea. Don’t think there should be but something you could ask them.
grats on the vaccine though!
Ibuprofen and acetaminophen equally ok to take if you need it after getting a shot? Or is acetaminophen preferred?
When in doubt avoid nsaids. Tylenol imo.
