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?

SpecialK, you sound like my allergy and health situation, and I, too, am happy to report having the first Pfizer shot Wednesday and all went well. I'm looking forward to the growing protection level by the 2nd week after second shot, but meanwhile still wearing mask and distancing. All the best for good results from your health workups and recovery from skin cancer surgery.

I actually received the first shot a few days before my diagnosis. I was lucky enough to qualify to get it through my job so I received my second shot a couple of weeks ago. Be prepared before anyone gets the second shot, I was pretty sick for about 24 hours after. I had a lot of breast pain & tenderness afterwards too for at least a week. I haven't started any cancer treatment yet.

ceanna - congrats to you, and all, for getting your first shot! Trying to decide what to do was a bit nerve wracking but I'm feeling good about the decision. I hope all goes smoothly for you with the second one - there is light at the end of this tunnel - for all of us, I hope. Appreciate the kind thoughts for the skin cancer recovery, you are sweet. Unfortunately, when I have the stitches removed in two weeks I have to have another cancer surgically removed. These two lesions are next to each other and they can't be removed at the same time as they will pull on each other. I have had many of these over the last 30 years so I have learned to take it in stride, a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things.

Ruth - I hope your second Moderna goes well - my son, in his early 30's, was laid out by Moderna #2, as was my BIL, who is my age. Both short lived responses though - fine after 24 hours. Worth it for the protection.

I got the Moderna and am now 2 weeks out from my 2nd dose. My only side effect both times was a sore arm. Same for my husband. I’m a teacher and now the majority of my school building staff have gotten both rounds in.

I'm getting my first shot in a few hours. I had tried going through our state sign-up, but those locations were all in rural areas as far as possible from where I live. It's our foul governor's way of keeping the urban poor unvaccinated since there's no public transportation to those sites. I have a car and the time, but I refuse to normalize what he's doing. Luckily, I had also signed up through MyChart, and that gave me a lot of local options for location, date, and time.

I received the J & J vaccine on the 10th. I am not sure if I got the best vaccine out there but I did what they advise and took the one I was offered. Very happy! It is still very effective at keeping people out of the hospital and from dying and that is why I wanted a vaccine!

I received it via my school district. If I wasn't working for the school, who knows when I would have been vaccinated?

My only issue was a little soreness and redness at the site. I was tired the next day but I can't say it was from the vaccine because I believe it was from the complete relief of anxiety and fear of getting Covid that I have had since going back to work at the end of August. We are still getting four or more positive cases weekly in the middle school I work at, Friday we were told we had 2 more.

My husband got the Pfizer vaccine and has his second shot next week. I am extremely thankful!!!!

mavericksmom,

Please listen to the doctors and researchers who are telling us there is no “best” vaccine. Remember that the annual flu vaccine is less effective than any of the COVID vaccines! As to when you might have been vaccinated had you not been in education? Well, vaccines are now in greater supply so you would have waited your turn like anyone else. I am really happy for you because I know your fear was very real. One of my colleagues has been very fearful but is doing a bit better now that she’s had her vaccine. Fear is very personal and very stressful.

I got my second vaccine today (Moderna). I did not expect to be scheduled so early but my care team said I'm high risk (I do have reactive airway disease, so perhaps that's why?). Regardless, I got the first vaccine when offered and scheduled the second one on the spot.

I would have taken whatever vaccine was offered, although the J&J wasn't in my area on Valentine's Day. So Moderna it is.

Apatheticboob, Have you discussed your decision with your PCP? If it's truly a valid medical decision, it's a good one. But if you're basing it on "It might be a problem" without the medical expertise to back it up, I would think getting Covid would be MUCH more problematic for your other conditions than the vaccine (or any vaccine) would be.

I'm in South America and no brand of Covid vaccine has been made available to my age group yet. I am still on the fence about having it because I already had a huge pulmonary embolism at the end of my chemo 10 years ago and had to take warfarin with my anastrozol, etc. for a few years. Although I was told that chemotherapy could have been the cause of the embolism, I was also diagnosed with half of a gene pair of some kind of blood clotting problem. Unfortunately, I no longer have the test results of the blood test. I live in a smallish place in the middle of nowhere and really don't want a blood clot here (my embolism happened when I was living in a large city and I was really lucky to get treated in time).

I am still waiting and wondering if I should have the vaccine when it is finally offered ...
