Reply To: Covid 19 Vaccine

I had the second dose of the Moderna vacine in 3/14. To date I am fine. The reason I confidently took the vaccine is because of the advice I receive from my cousin, a retired infectious disease doctor. He told me (in simple terms) is that the COVID vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna, are nothing like a flu shot. Again, in simple terms, a flu shot injects the patient with a small dose of the flu to build up ones immune system while the COVID vaccine blocks COVID and does not attempt to build up the immune system. So, as far as I understand, the risk/reward of getting vaccinated against COVID is so overwhelming in favor of getting vaccinated. I am now 100% vaccinated and relieved that I am.
