Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

That’s how I feel also, I’ve done what I can do. I “bought” myself another six months of relatively stress free freedom, hopefully in 6 months Covid will be under control, if not I’ll have to make another booster decision… but for now I’ve done what I can, that’s that.
That's not necessarily true, though. We don't know that the effectiveness of the boosters will wane as the initial doses have. There are other cases where vaccines have needed a single booster and after that confer long-term protection. That may be the case here. No one has yet determined that repeated boosters will be necessary. Hopefully, they won't.

They didn't have to stay *for the second dose and/or the booster*. The first dose, second dose, and third dose are exactly the same stuff. Having an allergic reaction after your second dose when you didn't have one after your first dose isn't a thing. It's not possible. The (correct) assumption is that if you were fine after your first, you'll be fine after your second.
I still complied w/ my pharmacist instructions and after the 15 min egg timer went off she then gave me my completed CDC card and I went on my way.

I hope you are right, I’d love for this to be my final dose and be personally done with Covid.

Worst case scenario I’m good for another 6 months though, I can live with that.

First dose kicked my ***. Second dose didn’t have any effect on me.

It's also a matter of what you are trying to achieve with the boosters. For a lot of people boosters are really only needed to prevent infection, since even un-boosted the vaccines still appear to protect against serious illness.

I decided to get the booster about 10 days before my cruise earlier this month. My parents were boosted, and my brother was vaccinated + had covid in October. I felt the least immune out of all of them!

I will say I felt the 3rd shot (Pfizer) more than the first two. The first two were incredibly minimal, nothing more than a dull headache. The booster had me feeling drained and with a fever about 24 hours later. Slept it off and then was fine after that.

All three Pfizer doses were about the same for me. I think I had a little more arm pain with the 3rd, but not by much.

Seems odd that some posters say that per the pharmacist they didn't have to stay. I'm glad our pharmacist made us stay for 15 min sitting in the seats next to the pharmacist station in case of allergic reaction.
I got my Pfizer booster yesterday at a CVS and my husband got his Moderna at another CVS -- across the street from each other (LOL), one in a Target -- and at both the pharmacist asked us to wait 15 minutes "if you have the time". I waited the full 15 and then walked around the Target shopping, felt a little woozy and was glad I could go sit down again if I needed to. I recalled feeling the same wooziness about an hour after the first shot. It quickly passed and I went to bed early feeling tired; this morning my arm is sore but that's all. Really hoping this one will cover us well through winter.

For longer than they remain highly effective against transmission but the serious illness protection also appears to wane. Probably not enough to need a booster yet but it is unknown how long that protection lasts.

Judging by my bizarre dreams and restlessness last night I think they accidentally gave me a psychedelic instead of a Pfizer booster. Are crazy dreams a side affect?

Every time I fell asleep I’d have a crazy dream that would wake me up.

A bad nights sleep and a sore arm is it though, other than being tired I feel fine today.

Here is the weekly report from the Florida DOH (it was delayed until today due to the holiday - the data is from Nov. 19 to Nov. 25th). The number of new deaths reported from the last report (November 19th) to this report is 467.

If one took melatonin , then lucid dreams happen on occasion. I take 5 mg nightly to melt into my mattress.

Not exactly a stampede of people getting their 5-11 year old children vaccinated. 19% of the fully vaccinated have gotten a booster.

Molnupiravir received its EUA today. I didn't watch the hearing or read the research paper yet, but it looks like the drug may not be quite the game changer we had hoped for.
My understanding is preliminary data looked great, but wasn’t enough people enrolled yet. That started the review process early. Then the second set of additional data was added, and it all was less effective. Lots of work needed to see if it was data sample issues, like maybe a hospital that was a particular population in one of the data sets but not the other, skewing the results.

Definitely a let down.

Both pills have limited use timeframes too. Helpful, but not radical game changers. Still best to get vaccinated.

Did they actually announce EUA or just the advisory vote? Not that they’ll likely deviate.
