Did you get vaccinated yet? Which country are you from and which type of vaccine you got? What’s your opinion on vaccines in general? Comment me and let’s discuss friends.

For your information, here are the available types of Covid-19 vaccines in United States:

Pfizer Vaccine: Two doses are needed, 21 days apart (or up to six weeks apart, if needed). People age 16 and older should get the vaccine

Moderna Vaccine: Two doses are needed, 28 days apart (or up to six weeks apart, if needed). People age 18 and older should get the vaccine

Janssen/Johnson & Johnson: One dose is needed. People age 18 and older should get the vaccine

There were so many discouragements from my own relatives and my very well-educated friends. They were purely recommending me NOT TO HAVE the vaccine.

But I was determined to have my two doses of vaccines. I don’t know about you, but I generally believe in vaccines. There are so many diseases that have been off guarded by vaccines according to medical experts.

I know some of the readers won’t agree with me. But it’s always alright to have difference of opinions and still be friends, isn’t it? So, I believe we will still be good friends even though you and I disagree on vaccine myths!

Vaccines in general helps your body build up the ability to fight off a virus. A vaccine may not prevent you from getting the COVID-19 virus. But if you do get the virus, the vaccine may keep you from becoming seriously ill. Or it may keep you from developing complications due to the illness. And that may be a lifesaving benefit of the vaccine.

But I do agree with the experts that the vaccine may not be recommended for those with certain health conditions. 

While each type of vaccine works in a different way, all prompt an immune response so that your body remembers how to fight the virus in the future.

It’s been told that people who’ve had an immediate or severe allergic reaction to any of the vaccine’s ingredients or after a prior dose of the vaccine shouldn’t get the next dose of vaccine. People who’ve had an immediate allergic reaction to any vaccine or injectable medication should be cautious about getting the vaccine

Even after a vaccine is authorized for use, vaccine safety monitoring systems continue to watch for side effects.

Possible side effects are injection site pain, fatigue, headache, muscle pain, chills, joint pain, swollen lymph nodes in the arm that was injected, nausea, vomiting and fever.

Possible severe symptoms include shortness of breath, persistent stomach pain, severe or persistent headache, blurred vision, chest pain, leg swelling, easy bruising, and tiny red spots on the skin.

Please note that if you received this COVID-19 vaccine and are experiencing any unexplained new severe symptoms, seek emergency care immediately.

Having or not having the vaccine is your personal decision according to your health conditions. I don’t own or recommend any advice about vaccines. All I have typed here is purely my opinion for entertainment purpose only and I’m not forcing you to have or not have the COVID-19 or any other vaccine. Please make a smart choice and follow World Health Organization guidelines, it’s your life. Take care of yourself and others around you.
