I am fully vaccinated, but I choose not to get Boosted. The first two Vaccinations, I ended up out of work for almost 4 months. The Vaccines caused me tremendous pain that only went away after almost 4 months. So a Booster would most likely cause me to be out of work for almost 4 months again and I can't afford that risk. What about you?

I never got any vax. I still managed to be out of work for 2.5 months. Going back tomorrow.

I got the Johnson 1 shot as my vaccine
6 months later boosted with Moderno
Did not feel the Johnson
Modern booster put me out of action a couple of days

I’ve been boosted since November.

No plans on a second booster unless a new Delta-strength variant comes around. Not worried about Omicron.

Wife and I have had the two intitial shots and yesterday we got our second booster of Pfizer: we've had no complications and so far as we can tell have never contracted covid.

Just follow the science, people: why chance it?

Sure I could and at some time may well contract covid but the science shows that since I am vaccinated / boosted the symptoms / effect of infection would likely be much lighter than were I unprotected.

I have also been fortunate. two vaccines and a booster and no side effects for me. I will probably be getting my second booster shortly.

You guys who got no side effects were so lucky.

All in our family are vaccinated and older persons are boosted.

Only side effect was for the youngest kid (23) in the family…he was miserable for 12 hours. He had the Moderna jab.

I had the two Pfizer shots last Aug./Sept.. Recently I was in the hospital with Pneumonia. Did a follow up with my PCP and asked her about getting the booster. She recommended that I'm not strong enough yet to get one?
