Covid Booster? Piece of Cake (Michael Sullivan, USA, 11/18/21 11:10 am)

John E mentioned several of his acquaintances who suffered severe side effects from the Covid booster shot. Not true for me! I had zero effects from my Moderna booster and didn't even have a sore arm where the needle went in. On my first two Moderna shots I had zero after effects, and I was told the booster is less potent.

I think I have a pretty healthy immune system, as all during 2020 and 2021 at the height of the COVID spread in the US we went out to dinner 3-5 times a week (Nicole has Alzheimer's and she needs to be around people to keep her from being tough to manage). We almost certainly were exposed but we never got anything.

I owe my healthy immune system to the fact the Marines sent me for 35 years to places around the world where they couldn't spell hygiene and I ate, slept, and socialized with the locals. Plus I still drink a gallon of milk a week and eat lots of dairy products. I think there is a lot to the folks that claim natural immunity works against COVID but I took the shots as I could see no ill effects from doing so.  If it offers protection, then fine!

JE comments:  No one is tougher than a Marine!  Michael Sullivan is one of several WAISers who wrote to reassure us that the booster shot is no harsher than the original round.  So as soon as I post this, I'm going to sign up for mine.

Stay safe, Michael, and best to Nicole.
