Hello this is a question about the COVID vaccine! How well did it work for y'all? I'm so scared to get it because what if its not what they say? If I'm correct they had cases of COVID with people who had the vaccine and booster! Please share experience with it thank you.

      The covid vaccine doesn't stop you from getting covid. It just lessens the symptoms and make you less likely to have complications and or die from covidb

      Still haven't had COVID. I've had the booster, and I've been good about masking and social distancing.

      This is a decision that is up to you! In my case I have had really mild forms of Covid and was not hospitalized so that was a positive. I was however hospitalized for Long Covid months later and am still struggling with it

      Maybe I’m late to talk about this but I felt the need to anyway. I’ve received three Moderna jabs. Not had COVID yet. The beginning of this year both my mom and my child were sick with it and I tested negative. My mom had only had two jabs. I had already gotten my booster. My child is not vaccinated and will not be as it is currently their choice.

      I had all 3 Pfizer vaccines. As soon as they were available. But I’ve also been vaccinated by everything I’ve ever been supposed to get (chicken pox, flu every year, hpv, etc.). My arm definitely hurt after each one (they’re all intramuscular). After the first, I felt like I was super tired and a touch feverish for about 12 hrs that started 12 hrs after I received it. After the second, I felt the same thing as the first (time wise & everything) but a little more intense. The booster is the one that fucked me up the worst, but still better than full COVID that kills you. The symptoms were the same as the 2 before but lasted longer (almost 2 days). But I was fine afterwards. Don’t let this account get to you, everyone is different. I know people who got the same exact vaccines I did & felt barely anything. I just happened to react strongly for some reason, but nothing life-threatening. I’d recommend getting it in the evening the day before you have a day off work. Just in case you don’t feel super hot the next day. Good luck!

        @sloth4lyfe Oh yeah, and I got a couple swollen lymph nodes (one on my clavicle & another on my side boob area). They took a week or two to go away & every once in awhile I swear the clavicle one acts up. And chills & muscle aches. ^all after the booster (I reported the lymph nodes to the adverse reaction system online).

      I got the second Moderna vaccine and a few weeks afterwards I started to have seizures again and a different type too. That was the only thing that changed in my life. Not sure it was the cause but..its highly likely and I will not be getting a booster.

      I see you have a lot of comments already but I work at a clinic in Tucson called Quality of Life Medical Center where we were the top enroller for the Moderna vaccine trials. I’ve followed a lot of the data on all the vaccines since day one. You can google our story on the news by kgun9. Just wanted to extend the offer to possibly answer any more of your questions.

      Fully vaxxed and boosted, and still haven't gotten it! I have complicated health issues, and am also very afraid of what long covid could do. I am still continuing to wear a mask inside.

      I personally had the vaccine and when I did get covid (I avoided it for 2 years and only got it when my mom brought it home from the hospital) I had very minor symptoms for only a few days. The booster gave me pretty severe muscle aches that night, but I also have fibromyalgia so that aggravated it. My symptoms went away the very next day.

      I'm fully vaccinated but I haven't got my booster yet. I did get covid about 5 months after my shots but i really thought I just had a cold, if it wasn't for my boss asking me to get a test just to make sure I'd never would've thought I had it. The shots didn't really effect me or my family it just made us kinda sleepy after a day or two of getting it and we had a lazy day so make sure that if you do get it you get it when you have time to be lazy

      The covid vaccine saves lives, could save yours and will save others. That is reason enough ❤️

      The side effects of the vaccine were killer for me, but it's better than me getting covid in my condition lmao. you can still get covid, it's just much less likely to be severe or deadly because your body already has info on how to fight it instead of trying (and failing) to learn on the fly while the virus actively ravages every body system

      I got the vaccine and the booster. I haven't had covid (as far as I'm aware), and if I have had it, the only sickness I've had since was a few colds. My reaction to the fist vaccine was a small headache that lasted for about half a day (the same day). The second vaccine gave me a low fever the day after. The booster gave me a persistent fever and body aches the same day and the day after. I would recommend getting it just to be safe. Everyone's reaction to the vaccines aee different, but it's usually not that bad. I was the only one in my family to get a fever from the vaccines, and I never had any nausea.

      I made the decision NOT to get the vaccine.. I haven’t had Covid and if I did I didn’t know it…. At first the story line was “if you get the vaccine you WONT & CANT get covid” but then when people with the vaccine started getting Covid the story in was “it’s just a few breakthrough cases” and then when more and more people with the vaccine started getting Covid it changed to… “it lessens the symptoms so you won’t be hospitalized or die” 💁🏽‍♀️🤣🤣 So with that being said.. no matter what me or anybody else say.. make the decision for yourself… 💕💕

      I want to be 100% honest and say... I only got it because my college was offering money to the folks who did. (≧▽≦) I wanted to be the last in my family to get it as I felt like I had burdened them enough with my condition (medical guilt type beat) and once I got it, the only thing that made my experience different was a swelled lymph node. This is perfectly normal when your body fights off infection, as your lymphatic system is kinda like the TSA for the airport that is your body. When people get flus or fevers, they can have a swelled lymph node because all that nasty virus gunk is draining out. The lymph node that swelled for me was on the left side of my neck, so it was just a lil bump, but there have been cases of swelling in the armpits, too, since you have a lymph node there. I can't imagine that being too comfortable.

      That's a relief because I'm a diabetic which is higher risk for complications and death so thank you

      Recommended. My son had all 3 vaccines and still contracted Covid x 2. He’s in medical school-shit happens. Still recommend vaccine so you don’t die!

      • CruelMelodies

        829d

        @Trumpet_Man Ok I will try thank you

      Yep, if you're fully vaxxed and you get covid later, it's probably just going to feel like a cold. I got all three doses (vaccine + the booster) and the side effects were pretty mild. For all of them, I felt fine for the first couple days. First dose, I had some nausea and back pain. Second dose, I had a pretty bad headache but that went away the next day. Third dose, my body ached but otherwise I was okay. The side effects don't last longer than a couple weeks, so please get vaxxed! It's worth it in the long run.

        @Wish Nausea, and back pain sucks guess I'll be prepared thank you

      I have all the vaccine and the booster and still got covid but to me it just felt like a bad cold and I was down for a day. But my friends who got covid at the same time but were unvaccinated had worse symptoms and some had to go to the ER. So I recommend the vaccine but at the end of the day it’s your choice

      • CruelMelodies

        829d

        @Torii Ok thank you I'll try and get the vaccine and booster because I am not going to he ER especially where I live that hospital SUCKS
