Yeah, it doesn't get easier, does it?
My Sister's had the 3rd, the booster shot, and says it was just as bad the day after.
Yikes!

I had my third Covid shot last Saturday, with no ill effects other than a sore arm for a day.

I'll have my flu shot soon.

Desperation amid ludicrously high infection rates...!

It's Priority Only, at the minute. My sister got hers early because she went through the whole Cancer thing, last year, so she's still high up on the list.
I'll probably be getting mine fairly soon, too. The holes in my skull give me bonus points for jabs!

No idea when the 3rd shot wil be done over here.

In Russia only <40% of the population had a shot. 800 people there died in the last 24 hours.

I'm on the NHS nursing frontline so I have to be available and fit for my patients.

Aye, flu seasons here and that's normally when the NHS gets busier.

How long after the 2nd doses are you guys/family getting the 3rd?

Lee had his second one about 5 months ago, date for his 3rd one is yet to be confirmed. Reason he's having the 3rd one is that his job requires it, I've not been offered one yet but had some sort of letter recently that indicates that I will prbably be offered one in the future due to being in the vulnerable catagory.

They say best time to get the booster shot it 6 months after your second.

With the flu it mutates every year so that's why it's recommendation to get one annually - I know covid is mutating too, but I'm surprised that they are suggesting getting the booster so early... is it because these vaccines dont last long in the system, or is covid too strong that they are recommending the boosters?

Just got back from the clinic, had my flu jab. Now waiting for an anti-vaxxer to try and suck it back out.
