Jim, ask them to show you the Moderna vial and watch them draw up the doses for you and your wife.My wife learned this afternoon that one of her friends and her husband got their first dose today at the same pharmacy where we got ours a week ago. But they got Pfizer and we got Moderna. That means we will both be eligible for second doses on the same day at the same facility, but different vaccines.
I'm wondering how that is going to work.
I trust this pharmacist completely, and she is a good friend. The pharmacy is in a large Kroger grocery, and they vaccinated all of their employees with Moderna on the same day we got ours. I don't think there will be a problem.Jim, ask them to show you the Moderna vial and watch them draw up the doses for you and your wife.
That's good to know, Jim, about the percentage of immunity already bestowed on someone who has had the first dose. Thanks! After hearing about what to expect as a reaction when having the second injection, I'd love to skip that "booster" dose but of course I won't. What I'm still wondering about is if we will have to go through this annually or at specific time periods now, perhaps getting a one-injection booster shot in order to keep up our immunity. As time goes on there will be answers to current questions and concerns, of course. The important thing right now is to get as many people vaccinated as is possible as soon as possible.I have read today that the Moderna vaccine has been found to provide 80% immunity two weeks after the first shot. But no one knows how long that level of immunity lasts, so the CDC still considers it important to get the second one.
You must have had the Pfizer vaccine because of the 3 week span. It is good to know about your reaction. I will be getting the same.my arm was very sore and I felt puny until noon the next day but I'm 100% now. For my shot I went to a small town nearby where you met with a nurse in a private room and did the Q&A part and then the shot, then you waited 15 in another room Very professional and well done. Next shot in 3 weeks. I'm still not taking any chances
Good luck!! I hope you can get an appointment soon!Paperwork filled out and working on getting an appointment. This is not easy as the slots fill up within minutes of opening up. Next slots will be on Feb. 4th and I am keeping my fingers crossed. The web site keeps crashing because of the overload.
