My parents got the vaccine last week, they received the first dose of Pfizer. My father didn't have symptoms but my mom had fever and body pain but it only lasted one day and now she is totally fine. It is a relief for me knowing that they have some kind of protection. Almost everyone in my family had already received at least the first shot, only me, my sister, and the kids haven't received it yet. Here they are saying that the group immunity will be reached in August but I think they are being optimistic. Have you received the vaccine?

So glad to hear that your parents have been vaccinated. Glad your father was ok, and that your mum is totally fine now. Have I had it? No Not having it.

Thank you. Don't you want to take it? I know some people who refused it, it is their right.

@nela13 Too many people are in hospital with Covid after having both shots. Its not safe. It wasn't tested enough

@JimBo452020 that is true, this vaccine was produced in a record time, we don't know the future consequences of it.

I am glad your parents had their first dose and it was NOT AstraZeneca. It takes a while before to reach full protection.

I am glad they didn't receive AstraZeneca. Yes, only after the second shot they will have full protection. Have you received the vaccine?

@nela13 I already received both shots, I had Moderna, doctor told me that Pfizer was not for me, due to my tachycardia. My cousin in Italy had AstraZeneca one week ago, she is not at all well, high fever, headache, pain in all body, she regrets she accepted the vaccine.

@LadyDuck I would prefer my mother to receive Moderna as she has a heart condition but here we cannot choose.

@nela13 I hope it gets to you soon. Many kids get the virus, too. I worry about the long term effects of covid.

@DianneN only my son can take it as I read children must be 12 or more. Yes, the long term effects will only be seen in the next years.

Today and, it was Moderna. Only first dose. My mum got both Pfizer doses in March, while my father got his first dose 2 weeks ago. I hope we are safer now Must say, my arm hurts, where i got an injection.

The vaccination in your country is going well, here they are now vaccinating people over 60, next month it will be the 50s.

@nela13 No, I don't. It's not so much I'm afraid of receiving it. I don't like needles. I also don't like the fact they are giving you the virus. I haven't had it, and don't want it via a vaccine.
