I Am Boosted

I have achieved my booster. It's Moderna, while my first two shots were Pfiezer, but the pharmacist said it was okay to mix and match.

So far only mild body aches and a headache, but I might take the rest of the day off. I could use some sleep.

Me too! But I got Pfizer today (M/M/P). The pharmacist said he did the same.

When I got there, the pharmacist was talking a woman who was there for a Shingles vaccine into getting her first Covid shot (confetti!), which she did. It meant the rest of us were all delayed but it was definitely worth it. He was also encouraging people to get flu shots along with their Covid shots (though he told a student that there would be a $25 copay and if he didn't want to pay it to go across the street to the other pharmacy that has an agreement with his insurance for flu shots-- I think the student opted to pay the $25 instead of waiting in line again).

If I'd gone to Wal-Mart, I could have gotten the flu and shingles vaccine at the same time, all for free. Oh, well.

Congrats! I've read that mixing either Pfizer or J&J with a moderna booster is more effective.

Glad you got boosted! (I did a couple weeks ago now.)

Oh, that is interesting! Here's hoping it's true.
