Congratulations. Stay well hydrated the second one is not as well tolerated as the first. 🙂
It is unfortunate that many of your colleagues at the NIH had to utilize the Montgomery County vaccination facilities intended to provide vaccination for community health care workers. But I guess that is part of the lack of strategic planning that we have suffered from.
How long do I have to wait for my vaccine booster after testing positive, with no symptoms, 14 days after receiving my first dose?
immunocompromised asplenia patients have no answers if the vaccine produces enough antibodies, if they need booster shots and when and there is no commercially available serology tests for vaccine induced antibodies to even measure what antibody level they reach. This vulnerable population is in the dark, with no assurance the vaccine works, no way to test for it and no recommendations what vaccine is best for them, or if boosters are needed. Doctors do not even know if the MRNA vaccines or a different type is best for asplenia patients..
I got my two coronavirus shots. Do I get one more as a booster shot a year later?
