Yep... I will need a third dose...

... But, not until next February if they follow guidelines - so, I'm now wondering... is it worth it???

Come February, we should already be through the worst of the winter peaks that we are expecting - and I'm not particularly keen on suffering through this a third time if I can help it. I learned with my second dose that I'm not a fan of the side effects that I went through.

From what I've understood, the third dose is purposefully delayed by a certain number of months from the second in order to maximize the antibodies production (and prevent existing antibodies from neutralising the mimicked protein); especially in countries where the delay between the first two doses was short (3-4 weeks) and in groups more at risk.

If I'll be offered a third I'll take it. I've suffered from asthma already, not a fan of the suffocating in land experience that covid is prone to give. Nor of persistent brain fog, chronic fatigue syndrome, et similia.

My side effects after the second shot were really bad, but I'm getting a booster in Jan. It's hard to commit to feeling bad in order to not feel even worse, but I'm gonna do it.
