Covid 19 vaccination

       Just received my second covid shot. I had a mild reaction, sore arm and some flu like symtoms, but recovered by next day. I urge everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible. 

FYI: Pfizer vaccinne has been shown to be 92% effective after first dose. So effective that they have delayed booster shot so more people can get their first dose.

Unrelated topic: I will be traveling cross the USA for the month of april, with an emphasis on traveling with a pacemaker. I intend to document the trip on video, showing accessibility to various National Parks and hikes. The videos will be available on YouTube.com/ THE WOW FACTOR/hosted by Ed & Anne  We hope you will travel along with us on our adventure.

Wishing everyone, a healthy and active day

The problem with delaying the second shot is that if one waits too long the series may have to be done again, further taxing supply. Neither vaccine has been tested for this use.

On a better note, after the second, and appropriate time,  the vaccines are nearly 100% effective in either eliminating the possibility of infection or reducing the severity to a minimal risk. No evidence of any transmission of the virus has been shown in either case.

Present evidence shows the immunity after the first dose starting to decrease after 4 weeks. Once you get the booster dose at, say 4-12 weeks, then the immune response will be 90%+ 

As long as the Covid prevalence in the community is high you should continue to take all necessary Covid precautions. There is no such thing as 100 % immunity when it comes to Covid vaccination.

It may be the first time we've felt a normal heart rhythm in a long time, so of course it seems too fast and too strong.
