At first I was an Adamant NO.

Now, I am completely unsure. Definitely not looking forward to the unpleasant side effects it gives the first few days that people have mentioned.

I don't even get the flu shot; but I know this is different. I may some day.

Does anyone know if this is a once in a lifetime thing? Or do you have to get it yearly like the flu?





What are the side effects the first few days?



Moderna - fatigue
Pfizer - haven't seen any listed



I have also heard one side effect is that it feels like you have a hangover.

Yes that too! I hate that feeling! Even though I don't learn my lesson......

Since two independent companies came up with very similar vaccines, with similar results, it increases my confidence in the vaccine quite a bit. I won't be cutting the line to be the first one, but I could see me getting it relatively early.

Nope and Coumo is not rushing to give it to NYers so you might have a longer wait.

I also don’t get the flu shot. Couldn’t tell you the last time I had the flu.



False/misleading




I do believe Cuomo will wait till Trump is out of office to give it to NY.
He has an agenda. He always does. Look at what he did about mandated vaccines.

Body aches and pain, fatigue, and a really bad headache that have lasted a few days.....Chat Icon



The percent of people for the side effects is low. Also these are more or less the same side effects as the flu shot.

Also - most of us will not be eligible for the first wave of vaccines so we have a few additional months to make our decision.

I strongly recommend following these scientists on IG:

The vaccine won't be ready until the beginning of next year so it is a nonissue.

He doesn't like Trump having a vaccine out before he gets out of office. The way he supposedly is distributing it. He won't give Trump credit for anything, especially if it works.

Yes, they interviewed people who had the vaccine and and the booster, and said it felt like a hangover for one day. All the drinking I did in my college years, I think I can handle that.

Probably, but first I want to see Trump, Fauci, and Biden physically get the vaccine and be sure they aren’t getting placebos for public show. I also feel healthcare workers were lambs to slaughter in March so I don’t trust they aren’t being used as guinea pigs this time around as the first in line to get the vaccine. I will ultimately decide base on the evidence.

Cuomo can be arrogant but it’s not like Trump created the vaccine. Pfizer wasn’t even part of Operation Warp Speed and has distanced itself from Trump admin, even though Pence is misleading people to think it’s the admin’s success. Pfizer did not accept government money.

I don’t believe anyone should get credit for a vaccine except for the researchers and scientists.

Not sure why Trump is even mentioned when talking about the vaccine. It wasn't developed because of him, it was developed despite him. Anyone in office would've pushed it through, though most any other president wouldn't have let us get into such a bad position in the first place.

I will get it, and so will my husband and children. Life is miserable and scary and I will do whatever it takes to get my pre March life back.
I am VERY pro vaccine though.

I guess it is more he pushed it along after they accused him of not closing the country fast enough.

He didn’t push anything along. For him to even mention the success of vaccine development when he bashed wearing masks, downplayed CoVid as a flu that would one day disappear, when he suggested injecting bleach, and when the White House became a hot spot, it makes it very hypocritical to now take credit for a science and research based vaccine under his tenure of golf.

He also insinuated vaccines cause autism, so he should just shove it on anything vaccine-related in my opinion. The scientists are the heroes, as are all those medical people on the front lines.

He also hasn’t attended a CoVid task force meeting in 5 months. Disgraceful.

will you take the new covid vaccine ?

I will... I work in a hospital and worked through COVID. Can’t do this anymore. It’s traumatizing at this point. We hovered at 2-3 patients all summer, back up to 28 covid patients as of yesterday. I’m done. I’m ready for the vaccine and people need to take it (when it’s safe to do so of coarse). None of this anti- vaccine garbage. Covid needs to end, for the economy, for people’s mental health and for me personally my own mental health. Seeing the number rise and things moving towards the early days has me ready to crack like an egg. Not getting my paper towel order online (something small) literally sent me over the edge the other day, remembering how it was back in March. I can’t take it any longer

I’m sorry Chat Icon I get it. That feeling like you’re about to crack.

Just The paper towel thing put me way over the edge last week. I cannot believe the hoarding but I don’t even blame them anymore.

Cuomo has said his independent team will be ready to approve it nearly instantaneously and that this added step should cause no delay.

I am on the fence. Part of me really wants to just take it so I can get my normal life back but like most everyone, I am also hesitant due to the breakneck pace at which this vaccine is being pushed to market.

I guess I will decide when the time comes and more information comes out.

Chat Icon Can't even imagine how you feel. You're someone we should all be listening to. Someone with training, education, and boots on the ground experience. You also couldn't be more right about this needing to end.

I'll be taking my cues from people and institutions that know how the body works, that know how this virus works, and that actually have the tools to engage in the various intricate risk assessments that need to be done.

Yes.

I'm not in a high risk group so by the time it rolls around to me and my family, I feel like there will be a lot more information about it out there and a lot more certainty.
