I didn't even think about it. I didn't know I needed to.

I was a military brat so we moved a lot. I'm used to getting vaccines before getting in different schools. The covid shot was old hat. Got the booster too one day when I was doing a little shopping at CVS. No wait and the nurse was hot and pretended to like me.

Got the booster as mentioned earlier. After getting the booster, my wife got covid a few weeks later.

I didn’t get covid. Either the booster and/or the initial vaccines did their job, she had a false positive on the rapid take home test, or I was lucky.

two kids. One with 2 rounds and another not vaccinated. No covid for them either.

before i got the first shot back in april 2020, i was already (and still am) immunocompromised due to a health condition and also knew i would need a hospital stay at some point either in late 2020 or 2021, so i figured i had nothing else to lose at that point by getting 'vaccinated'... i.e. health was/is bad and i was also afraid of potentially catching it in the hospital... like the old saying goes, the best place to get sick is in the hospital.

anyway, i wouldn't have done it though had i been in good health with no need for a hospital stay at some point in the near future.

personally, i don't feel there's enough real data yet to know for sure of its effectiveness and of course its long-term effects, plus the fact that it's not a true vaccine is very concerning. and goes without saying that i'd never allow a child of mine under 18 y/o to get one. no way no how.

that said, i'm not necessarily an 'anti-vax' person, but i need to see real evidence and hard data first. for example, true vaccines for things like polio and tetanus i don't have problems with.

Planning on getting the Pfizer booster soon. No reason not to since I got the first two shots, but at some point no more. I don't get the flu shot each year.

I got the flu shot this year. Everyone in my house has had some kind of flu except me.

Got the shingle vaz too. Now that hit me with a standing 8 count.

I had the 2 covid19 jabs in March and June. I'm getting the booster after Christmas. I had the flu jab 3 weeks ago.
