I didn't want the experimental mRna shot from Pfizer or Moderna, so I waited until the J&J shot was available. The J&J uses the more traditional virus based technology. Plus, the J&J is only one shot.

If I were a young fella, I probably would not have gotten the shot, but being an old fat fart with conditions, I figured I'd go for it.

My thinking was exactly the same and I also waited for the J&J. The other two vaccines will probably turn out to be perfectly safe and in 10 years all vaccines will work that way but I wanted them to try the new technology out on some other people first.

I got the first shot of the Moderna vaccine. 30 minutes after getting that 1st shot, I felt like I was in a tub filled with ice water for about half an hour . Moderna they say is about 94 to 95 % effective.

Makes sense to me, Paul. I know others that got the Johnson and Johnson. No complaints from them.

I had the Moderna and all good so far other than feeling a little sick after the second shot. It is what my firm provided for everyone. I knew a couple of people that went down permanently from Covid and thought--well, it's better than being dead.

Paul I got the J & J shot myself last week.NO problems not even any soreness.I travel alot and one shot made more sense than being tied down by the calendar.I have always gotten yearly flu shots and it has worked out for me.

I got mine too Paul, with my underlying conditions my oncologist got me right in line for it. No side effect issues here at all.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I don't trust them but hope it works out for you Paul.
Vaccinated or not it seems folks still aren't out of the woods, this is the J&J experimental shot. Seven members of the New York Yankees' coaching and support staff have tested positive for Covid-19 despite being inoculated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine,

I got the J&J shot on April 2nd. Just know it isn't completely bulletproof though. Just tested positive with covid last week with most of the symptoms and now just a cough with burning lungs remains.

LOL, if I were a young female (18 - 45), it may be a little bit worrisome. But 6 young women getting blood clots out of 6 million shots administered seems like very small odds. No men came down with blood clots.

I have had covid 19. I had a cold two weeks after that was three times as bad. I would have called myself good but when my wife was diagnosed with cancer they told me it would be a good idea to get it so I met with my Doctor and he agreed. I got the Moderna X2 and the first shot bothered my stomach for a while but #2 did nothing. I would not have got them if it were not for her condition but I am healthy and have natural immunity.

Same here waited for the J&J shot just to lazy to get 2 shots LOL, like said if I was younger Iíd of passed on it but colds always end up in my lungs the last one about put me in the hospital Covid seemed worse.

Got the shot months ago just a stiff arm for a week was all. If you think you need it get it if you donít just donít we all live with our choices every day.
