  • ditto what pulmdoc said.

    • Yeah, it would be different if kidneys were in great abundance. Since they are not, and since (besides death) COVID can cause permanent renal failure, it makes sense to require a potential renal transplant patient to get vaccinated.

      • Looks like it will be acceptable to mix/match vaccines for the booster? What are you going to do? I'm on the fence. I got Moderna and am considering adding Pfizer booster.

        • I boosted with third dose of Pfizer. I think if I had only one dose of JnJ i would probably get a second dose of the same.

          • I got Pfizer and will be boosting with Moderna.

              I was planning to do the same. Now the question is whether to go out and get it today from CVS - which would presumably be the 100mcg dose - or wait for the actual booster to be available at the reduced 50mcg dose...

                I got 2 pfizer and boosted with 100mcg Moderna. I was sick for at least 12 hours after the booster. Now I know why.

                  Get whichever one you want, assuming you need one.

                    Precision and accuracy should not impact judgement. Good choice.
                    2 Moderna and Pfizer booster. The wife is resisting the booster due to discomfort. I doubt a discussion of dosage will impact her past experience. I hope one of her docs just says, “Get a booster”, quit procrastinating.

                    • was going to get the Pfizer booster a few Fridays ago when my 7yo came down with fever & headache at school...antigen test the next day strongly +. Was febrile for 3 days then back to normal day 4 or 5. The 5yo was asymptomatic and had a concurrent neg antigen test, then + PCR 5 days later, same course with fever and congestion, no lung symptoms. It's been 12 days since the 7yo felt ill...I've taken a dozen antigen tests (mostly out of curiosity, despite the low sensitivity) and 2 PCR, all neg, and am still asymptomatic.

                      I suppose there's a chance I could still develop symptoms over the next week, or my initial vaccine (Dec '20 and Jan '21) provided me adequate protection.
                      I guess I'll still get the booster at some point this Fall, but surprised my PCR test would still be negative. I've been living and breathing with the kids, they slept in our bed when ill...just weird.

                        Glad it worked out well for you but similar story with my kids and my wife and I both caught it. I got it right away a day or so behind them. My wife did not get sick until the day the last of us came off of quarantine. 15 days after first kid showed symptoms. It was a real PITA.

                        I wish you luck and hope that you do not get it! My kids are younger and likely more in our faces than yours so maybe that did it.

                          yeah i suppose I'm not out of the woods yet...crazy how long the latency period & prodrome can be.

                            Yeah I don't know why it took her so long to convert. She had Moderna and I had Pfizer and she happened to be working the day it all started with the kids so I took the brunt of the exposure but we both had significant exposure. You cannot isolate from a 2 year old. Trust me I try everyday!

                            • I think it's really creepy how hospitals and doctors are pressuring people into taking the Covid jab, even if you have natural immunity.

                              Don't think a doctor ever asked me to take a chicken pox vaccine, considering I caught it as a child decades ago!

                              Simple reverse psychology says that if you force someone into doing something that's "good for them" without sufficiently demonstrating why that thing is good, the individual will naturally resist.

                              I caught covid. The dry coughing for a week was not fun, but it wasn't the end of the world. I am young, healthy and love my natural immunity!

                                Can you point me to some studies that show that natural immunity is sufficient for avoiding repeat covid infections, or that natural immunity alone is better than “natural immunity” + covid vaccination? Thanks.

                                Also while you’re at it, please show me that chicken pox and covid have the same propensity for mutation.
