We haven't researched this idea fully yet, but if the data shows that a booster vaccination helps we might be tempted to get a "first" shot all over again. There are plenty of vaccinations available and not nearly enough people taking advantage of them so our action wouldn't deprive anyone. As for safety, there is a [URL="https://nypost.com/2021/05/11/nurse-accidentally-gives-patient-six-covid-vaccine-doses/"]documented case[/URL] of someone getting multiple shots at once by accident. But, like we mentioned, we need to do a bit more research.

I've been wondering the same thing. I got my 2 doses of Moderna back in March+April. Could I get [URL="https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/28/health/pfizer-third-dose-data-bn/index.html"]dose #3 of Pfizer [/URL]now, or another Moderna? What would be the health risks or benefits, if any? (huge vaccine surplus leads me to think that's the only relevant question)

Russian entry (and [B]no[/B], this is not the dreaded Sputnik-V; this is CoviVac... or maybe "KoviVak" since this is Russian :rolleyes: )
[SPOILER]My sister got two of these.[/SPOILER]

Hopefully people will take this as a sign to get the shot.

Because of the countries that are not recognizing AstraZenaca or mixed doses my wife and I were both able to get a 3rd dose; the last 2 being Pfizer.

The FDA [URL="https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/joint-statement-hhs-public-health-and-medical-experts-covid-19-booster-shots"]changed course[/URL] to some degree and now the official recommendation is a booster for folks in immunocompromised cohort after 8 months, and a few days later - the same for long-term care facilities and personnel.
And I will be getting my 3rd shot after Sep.20, per district plan. (as I work at a hospital)

pinhodecarlos 2021-08-24 08:01

My wife will get the third too.

firejuggler 2021-08-25 16:06
