Have you gotten the Covid vaccine yet or are planning to?

I may be eligible for it in February in my county since I’m an educator.

Not from Pfizer or Moderna.
elyay2001 · 46-50, M
[@73351,marsbar] Not yet, but it attacks the virus differently and that appeals to me more.
marsbar · F
[@10888,elyay2001] Oh interesting
PerthSurfer · 46-50, M
[@10888,elyay2001] This is interesting, i'd thought the pfizer was better but i don't know much about the AstraZeneca. I'll have to look into it, thanks.
SirBenedictTheSecond · 18-21, M
Me too. I’m essential. I need the injection. It’s a must.
marsbar · F
[@1182042,SirBenedictTheSecond] You’re so young.
TheCoolestCat · 31-35, M

uncalled4 · 51-55, M
I'm on the list.
uncalled4 · 51-55, M
[@73351,marsbar] However NJ will be f-ing it up.
marsbar · F
[@329500,uncalled4] Why?
uncalled4 · 51-55, M
[@73351,marsbar] Not sure. It's been almost a month.
CountScrofula · 36-40, M
I plan on it but I'm pretty far down the list of priorities.
marsbar · F
[@624254,CountScrofula] Ok. Just stay safe Count.
WillaKissing · 56-60, T
Nope, and nope!
marsbar · F
[@799841,WillaKissing] Ok
Haven't decided yet right now at my age I can't get it yet my parents are getting it tomorrow but I don't know when I'll get it
marsbar · F
[@4018,ExperienceDLT] I see.
Mikedewars · 61-69, M
I'm eligible but we don't have supply
marsbar · F
[@509481,Mikedewars] I see.
Mikedewars · 61-69, M
[@73351,marsbar] yeah New York is coming up short on supply. So I'm staying home and keeping clean that way
marsbar · F
[@509481,Mikedewars] I think really high Covid states will have shortage issues.
Probably not.
My immune system spends most of its time on high alert...so no.
marsbar · F
[@912138,OogieBoogie] Gotcha
I've had both my COVID-19 vaccinations.
Over here over a quarter of the population has already been vaccinated.
[@73351,marsbar] Israel
marsbar · F
[@280888,BridgeOvertroubledWaters] Oh
Nomoretomorrow · 41-45, M
[@280888,BridgeOvertroubledWaters] Fair play Israel have played a blinder with their vaccine rollout. 👍
I’m not against those who want to take it. If you believe it’s safe then it’s your risk to take as it is mine for choosing not to have it. I’ve had bad experiences with other vaccines even in childhood, and there is no way I would trust any now and that’s why I choose to refuse.
marsbar · F
[@1390,AwakeningConfession9] That’s understandable.
I’m not an anti vaxxer but I just don’t believe it should be mandatory.[@73351,marsbar]
marsbar · F
[@1390,AwakeningConfession9] I get that. A lot of people feel that way.
nudistsueaz · 56-60, F
No plans for it here.
marsbar · F
[@1786,nudistsueaz] Ok
1234cardiff · 56-60, M
I will ..... but I will let the “Herd “ toilet roll people first just to see if it react
marsbar · F
[@6449,1234cardiff] Lol
Sirfurryanimal · 61-69, M
Probably due first week of April.
marsbar · F
[@356742,SirfurryanimalWales] 👍🏼
braveheart21 · 61-69, M
He he he come n educate me in a few things girl....
marsbar · F
[@569110,braveheart21] I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve. 😌
braveheart21 · 61-69, M
Oh behaaaaave.... I got my mojo goin on... Come n teach me.... 😂😂😂😂😂[@73351,marsbar]
marsbar · F
[@569110,braveheart21] Lol
Miram · 26-30, F
I am getting it on Feb, 20.
marsbar · F
[@542305,Miram] 👍🏼
[@542305,Miram]
Wich one? Do you know yet..
Miram · 26-30, F

Classified · M
I don't like the ones using a new never used before technique and a super short testing time. Not going to take those.
marsbar · F
[@444927,Classified] I know. It’s unsettling.
Classified · M
[@73351,marsbar] I heard there is one which uses the regular technique and may be free of other objections I'd have. So I'm hoping for that one now. But testing time is still too short
marsbar · F
[@444927,Classified] Yes, I agree.
MeowsoliniReturns · 46-50, F
I plan to. I was scheduled to get it on the 3rd, but I am moving and don't want to do so with a sore arm.
marsbar · F
[@1079831,MeowsoliniReturns] I understand.
SW User
I'm pretty sure I have the antibodies to it already.
In my country of residence, there is no sight of vaccinations yet, lol. I'd prefer not to take it if I can avoid it.
marsbar · F
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Then you need not worry. 😇
PerthSurfer · 46-50, M
Yes definitely unless there's significant issues that deter even the medical community from taking it. I'll weigh it up against getting covid at my age with my health issues and pick which has the least risk.
marsbar · F
[@557074,PerthSurfer] That makes sense.
wildbill83 · 36-40, M
nope, nope
marsbar · F
[@597698,wildbill83] Ok billy
MrsKatherineArch · 36-40, F
If it gets life back to normal, count me in!
marsbar · F
[@186368,MrsKatherineArch] Let’s hope so.
AllAboutLaffs · 70-79, M
I had my first dose of Moderna on Friday ... second scheduled for 2/26
marsbar · F
[@1250,AllAboutLaffs] 👍🏼
JoePourMan · 61-69, M
We are a ways down the list, but yes I plan to get it when available
marsbar · F
[@1097981,JoePourMan] Ok
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
No & No
marsbar · F
[@16806,cherokeepatti] Ok
SumKindaMunster · 51-55, M
No.

Waiting on the J&J one since it uses the traditional dead/weakened virus instead of rNA or DNA technology.
marsbar · F
[@622788,SumKindaMunster] Oh, I see.
Azlotto · M
Nope. I've already had covid.
marsbar · F
[@913049,Azlotto] Oh
JeanAnna · F
Have gotten the first vaccine and getting the second one next Sunday.
marsbar · F
[@891327,JeanAnna] 👍🏼
JeanAnna · F
[@73351,marsbar] 👍
Yepp, next week...
marsbar · F
[@493455,Experienced33] 👍🏼
Darnart · M
So I refuse to take the first vaccine but due to work I have to take the vaccine when we get it in our country.
marsbar · F
[@1151395,Darnart] I see, so it’s mandatory for you.
Darnart · M
[@73351,marsbar] sadly yes as I think it will be for most "essential workers"
Leggs · 46-50, F
Not if I can avoid it.

I am low on the priority list anyways.
marsbar · F
[@1073121,Leggs] Gotcha
Jeffrey51 · 51-55, M
I want a real doctor and go into a real doctor office to give me the vaccine. I’m not going to these stadiums and drive up to get the vaccine from a volunteer.
Leggs · 46-50, F
[@865932,Jeffrey51] What about the drive-throughs that Walmart will likely open?
Jeffrey51 · 51-55, M
[@1073121,Leggs] won’t go to them either.
marsbar · F
[@865932,Jeffrey51] I get that.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
Not yet, but getting it when my turn comes.
marsbar · F
[@8638,MarkPaul] Ok :)
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
No and I don’t intend to get it
Iwillwait · M

SirBenedictTheSecond · 18-21, M
Are you hot educator the students secretly want?
marsbar · F
[@1182042,SirBenedictTheSecond] Are you a teacher too?
SirBenedictTheSecond · 18-21, M
[@73351,marsbar] if you are counting interns, yes. It’ll be weird teaching the ones I just saw in the hallways
marsbar · F
[@1182042,SirBenedictTheSecond] Well good luck with your teaching career. :)
Sirfurryanimal · 61-69, M
They are currently doing the Seventy to seventy two year olds in my area.I’m 63 so it’s not far away.
Wales is somewhere we are probably going to have to prove we’ve been vaccinated to get into sporting events and concerts so I have decided I have no choice....
marsbar · F
[@356742,SirfurryanimalWales] I see
1234cardiff · 56-60, M
Here in March for me I 60 not ready yet
I wait till toilet roll Hurd first
SW User
I’ve already gotten it and I’ve been coughing ever since.
Catzgano · 26-30, F
I’m not eligible yet but I would. I’m not sure about teachers
marsbar · F
[@448279,Catzgano] 👍🏼
Alan was one of the first. going to be a bit before I qualify for it

TexChik · F
Not yet . I have be low to no antibodies before I will take it. Right now I am very high and the blood bank wants to drain me .
laotzu92 · 61-69, M
8:40 a.m. on February 4th: a "shot in the arm".
WorldTraveler19 · 31-35, M
Planning on it!
Nomoretomorrow · 41-45, M
Had both shots of the Pfizer jab as a care worker. Other than a sore muscle in my upper arm each time I've had no reactions, but, as covid has swept through the dementia unit I work in 3 times, and I've seen so many of our residents die and so many of my colleagues seriously ill (some in hospital and some still suffering with long covid) I'm glad I've had it, especially as older men working in care homes have a massively raised chance of dying, think at one point we were the group with the highest death rate when rated by job and age.
marsbar · F
[@778787,Nomoretomorrow] Oh wow. Glad you got it.
