  • I remember when immature little kids used to collect and trade baseball cards. No harm, no foul, and lots of silly fun.

    Now they collect and trade ideas on which vaccine(s) to get. This is NOT progress ...

      • If you are unsure of which version of the vaccine to get, the correct version is the one that's available. That's the message I've read repeatedly. Don't stress waiting for Moderna or Pfizer. I would recommend waiting for these versions to be made available (vs. getting one now, unless your doctor directs you otherwise), because anything CVS may give out now is last year's.



        And again, I'll add that sure this could all easily look like a conspiracy if you've no idea how vaccines - or medicine in general - work.

            This is good to know. I thought you were encouraged to stay within one once you started, so I have always had Pfizer. AFAIK the USG's vaccination regime has always been Pfizer so it has been convenient.

            • Guys, just stop your hysterical conversations about the basic news and facts of upcoming vaccines, it apparently hurts calm and collected Chuck's and Jeb's feelings or something to hear such things.

                The original 2-dose course should be of the same brand, so far as I'm aware, but once you're beyond that it matters less.


                Think of the flu shot. You got it first many years ago most likely (well, hopefully!). Each year, do you have the faintest idea which brand developed the one you got? Probably not. Because it doesn't mostly doesn't matter and if it does matter, you and your doctor will know.

                  Does COVID just roll into the flu shot eventually? It's funny how the MAGAts don't scream conspiracy because there's a new flu shot every year.

                        As I understand it (could not quickly find a concise source to confirm), the CDC actually designs the flu vaccine each year, then provides the formula to private manufacturers to “build to print.” Therefore, there really should be no variation by brand name. Definitely not the same situation as the ‘Rona vaccines, even if the result (all brands roughly equal effectiveness) is the same.

                            The pharmacist who gave me my most recent booster (last winter), she thinks that rolling into a flu type regimen is the end state, but said there are still too many variables to make an absolute prediction.

                              I think I've seen the same think about wearing helmets while riding motorcycles. It's a grand conspiracy to enrich Bell Helmets at the expense of experiencing nature. God will protect you.

                                If they did that, wouldn't they need to change the process? Didn't the COVID vaccine originate from a fairly new method of understanding the virus, meaning it actually can somewhat quickly react to change vs. the prediction for the flu vaccine?
