Today the UK announced that one of the Covid vaccine has been approved and will be rolled out within 10 days. I believe the EU will have approval by the end of December. I'm in the middle of chemo so probably won't get it until after chemo is finished.

Once approval comes will you get the vaccine immediately or wait and see?

Unless you tend to have bad allergic reactions, why not get the vaccine? Your risk of complications from covid would be much higher, right? I would take a day of fever for the chance to reclaim some of my life and lose some worry. Someone here on BCO said her onc advised her to get it at the time during the Ibrance cycle when blood counts would be highest.

Somewhere I saw a post from someone who was worried to hear that the vaccine in an intramuscular injection, because it made them think of Faslodex injections. It is important to note that Faslodex is a *high volume* intramuscular injection — 250 mg/5mL of thick syrup in each buttock. It is given in the gluteal area because it has to be a big muscle to handle this volume. This is nothing like getting a small amount of vaccine, and why the arm muscle works just fine. This year's flu vaccine is .5 mL. That is one tenth the amount in a Faslodex injection. I assume the covid vaccine is a similar volume.

I'm on Ibrance. I got the flu shot in week 2 of my cycle because my scheduling choices were limited and I didn't want to stop Ibrance. I only had muscle soreness like my flu shot before having Ibrance. My low counts weren't a problem. My MO told me Ibrance doesn't prevent production of WBCs, but the cells stay in the marrow (so not in regular blood draw). They're there if needed.

On FB, my SIL posted a picture of getting the Pfizer vaccine as well. 😎

The vaccine is 0.3 ml per dose intramuscular. Mods should correct their statement.

Shetland: I agree, if the side effects are mild. I dont know much about the Moderna vaccine. However when I read something about possible cases of Bell's palsy, this is when my eyes lit up and better think this through a lot more. Back in the 90s, the US military was given the Anthrax vaccine for the PGW. A lot of the veterans continue to suffer dire consequences. I'm all for getting some resemblance of my life back. So my hesitancy is based on a lot of unknowns, specifically for folks that have cancer. I have a few more weeks. So I'll keep everyone posted...

I get your points, I truly do. And I agree with most of them.

but making it sound like getting a shot of epinephrine is a walk in the park isn't my recollection of my sole experience with that in the hospital ER after a very serious allergic reaction to being stung by several yellow jackets. It's not like -- pop -- you're all better.

BevJen - If I were you with a history of severe allergic reactions, I would wait until they know more about what triggers the allergic reactions. There are still more vaccines being developed. Also, hospitals are overwhelmed now. Not a good time to risk needing a visit.

SerenitySTAT,

the only thing I'm allergic to is various members of the bee and wasp family (can't remember all of the names) but years ago (actually right around the time of my initial cancer diagnosis in 2003) I went through five years of desensitization shots -- now that was a lot of fun. so my allergic reaction to bee and wasp stings now is quite suppressed. But I still vividly remember when they threw me on a table in the ER and stuck me with the epinephrine -- and it was NOT fun!

Since I am a health care worker ( RN), I received Pfizer vaccine last week. The only side effect I had was a sore arm for 2 days. I will be taking the 2nd injection in 2.5 weeks. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are both mRNA vaccines with no live virus or killed virus. Unfortunately, there is still not a lot of history on it. Recently read (today) that health authorities in North Carolina say it only will give two months of immunity. Not sure about that.

I am 50 and not in the workforce anymore. I have not heard when my turn will come. Even with my Stage 4 cancer diagnosis.

I asked my MO at my appt Dec 21 and she had no clue when it would be open to her patients.

Shetland, I'm a nurse providing direct patient care is why I qualified for vaccine. They had us wait for 30 min after shot in case of immediate side effects. Got a card and second vaccine scheduled. We were encouraged to sign up for V-SAFE thru CDC. I respond to a daily text and answer the questions regarding any side effects. Each state is handling the vaccination process differently that's for sure. I'm in Ohio

Texas has decided that older people are more important than teachers (for example) or cancer patients, which I don't necessarily agree with. However as an "older person", I understand if I give up my place in line, I will have to wait to the very end.
