I’m scheduled for a booster shot (Pfizer) and a flu shot in 2 hrs at a CVS close by.I got my 2nd moderna shot at the end of March. I read reports that you can mix and match and that doing so has shown increased efficacy of the booster shot. CVS shows which location has which booster so I chose one jabbing Pfizer.Also read it’s ok to get your flu shot the same time as the booster. Initially it was recommended to do them 2 weeks apart but now that’s been updated to say it’s okay to do them simultaneously. My fear would be getting the flu, giving it to my 4th grader, and then he would get pulled into Virtual again for the third time this fall semester. The 2nd time really upset him and understandably so. We’re also making covid vaccine appointments this week for both of our boys (6 yrs old & 9 yrs old)It’s finally here….
@kingbee67 I thought I heard discussion around it being beneficial to get a different type of booster so you might be good.
My oldest niece tested positive today, as well as her bestie and my youngest niece’s bestie. So far my youngest niece has tested negative, and my sister tested negative. All of the girls are unvaccinated. Please send good juju! I feel so bad for her - her 18th bday is Sunday, and now her party’s been canceled. I haven’t seen them since Thanksgiving, but my dad has so he is going to self-test today. I’ve been around him, so if he tests positive (which at 76, I really hope he doesn’t), I’ll need to self-test as well. He has been fighting cold symptoms for the past couple of days and I have slight cold symptoms. Both he and I are fully vaxxed and boosted, so I’m hoping it is just a cold for he & I and nothing more serious. I’ll know tonight though. EDIT: Dad tested positive, and I tested negative. I’m going to retest in 3 to 5 days just to be sure.
Fingers crossed for you, @Michelle!
@Michelle How are your dad and your nieces doing?
