Fine...but having no idea what your levels actually are is taking a chance. We don’t blindly suggest supplements and go by ‘ should be ok.’ We get the levels and go from there. 

There you go bringing Science into this again! The Infomercial World hates doctors like you!

FWIW, I don’t have a thyroid anymore as it was being a little bitch a while back and I fired it. So I take Vitamin D as a supplement anyway.

Question - they've been telling people to take whatever vaccine is made available to them. Would you be able to take either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine later if the only thing you could get right now was one of the lower efficacy vaccines?

The surgeon was explaining the removal of part of my wife's thyroid many years ago and when he finished he asked if we had any questions. I said, yeah, "could he install a mute switch while he was in there"...  Good thing I didn't bruise easily back then but it's one of those things we laugh about now.  😁

Our 2nd Moderna shot that was due tomorrow has been postponed 'til Saturday due to the weather and holiday. Things happen...

I'll let the medical professionals chime in but I heard that once you take one brand of vaccine you have to take the same follow up vaccine.

I don't think that's what he's asking, but… I also don't know what he's asking, either, as the J&J vaccine (the "lower efficacy" one) isn't out yet.

I am asking a hypothetical question. Because my wife is part of the group that's going to be last vaccinated, by the time she does get vaccinated I'm guessing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be part of the vaccines used. In the event that she gets that vaccine, will she be able to get a vaccine further in the future that is more effective

Good article.

As to my question - yes, no, IDK?

I don't think your question has been answered yet.  The other question... whether you can choose Pfizer or Moderna hasn't even been answered.  Because of the scarcity of vaccine I think it's take what we give you and don't ask questions...

It's been only 4 days since my 2nd Pfizer shot, so these posts are good info to me. Naysayers have got to keep in mind that even with the yearly flu vaccine people still contract the flu. Also, the flu symptoms are often much less for the vaccinated individuals. 

Comparing the COVID vaccine to the Flu vaccine is not correct. We get yearly flu vaccines because we are predicting the specific stains that will be likely. People can be infected because they get a non-covered strain or due to incomplete protection.

For SARS COV-2 there is 1 strain (now with several variants). It is much more like a Measles vaccine than a flu vaccine. If we need boosters remains to be seen due to incomplete data about the length of protection.

My second Moderna shot was scheduled to be tonight. They have postponed it to (hopefully) Monday. I know they've said a few extra days over the 3 week interval isn't going to affect the efficacy, but I can't help worrying that I'm gonna lose a few percentage points. Grrrrr

They actually extended the time to second dose to 28 days minimum as the recommendation from 21 days.

    • Adding tackling to golf could make things interesting...
    • Rugby League (not Rugby, that means Rugby Union) isn't really like American Football, but it is a faster and tougher game and some of the players only wear very light padding. Most wear none. Do not mistake "Rugby" for Rugby League. My point is that if you think he's talking about tackling and you look up Rugby you'll see Rugby Union, which is a running and passing game. They don't tackle like in League. I'm not making a comment about American Football. I love it.   
    • No - but if you said that the article said that the vaccine rather than the virus caused these issues it would be shared around the vaccine skeptics within seconds. None of them would read it and it would definitely qualify as "research".
    • Day 79.  Got video today, I have to process to upload to evolvr.  I did a wall drill on video and also did an attempt at a slow swing with a 6-iron on video;  did some practice with each prior to filming. 
    • I want to see them try to turn that into a "Get the Vaccination" TV commercial.
