Scheduled for COVID-19 Vaccine Next Thursday Morning – April 9, 2021

I scheduled for the old library on next Thursday morning, April 15, 2021 for the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. It’s a one-shot vaccine.

Going to be interesting to see how it goes. I have probably been exposed enough to COVID-19 that I have most likely gotten it without obvious symptoms. On the off-chance I have not gotten it yet, I figure the vaccine is very effective at least for the near future. I am also a blood type that is low risk according to experts. I considered getting one of the two-shot vaccines, but decided against it.

There is debate over if booster shots will be needed down the road – https://thehill.com/changing-america/well-being/prevention-cures/547143-moderna-says-its-booster-shot-against-covid-19 (audio starts playing shortly after the page loads). One other view – https://www.wsj.com/articles/pfizer-biontech-covid-19-vaccine-protects-for-six-months-companies-say-11617273901.

I also noticed a pill is being developed – https://www.webmd.com/vaccines/covid-19-vaccine/news/20210324/clinical-trials-planned-for-oral-covid-19-vaccine. It looks promising at the animal testing stage.

A slightly different take on mixing vaccines as boosters – https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/explained/article/3125828/coronavirus-why-do-we-need-booster-shots-and-could-mixing-covid. Some have already received a third shot – https://medicalxpress.com/news/2021-03-covid-booster-shots-vaccinations.html to see if it prolongs immunity.

Update: they cancelled the Johnson and Johnson vaccine due to a very rare blood clotting situation for women. They rescheduled me for the Pfizer vaccine. Went ahead and kept the appointment. Got my second shot on May 6, 2021.
