Hello, friends! I’ve a little update to share.
I have just been to get my second COVID booster jab. The nurse who gave it to me was a colleague of mine in the Emergency department where we worked together some thirty years back. She shared that I will be called again in the Autumn. The government really is pushing forward to have a population resistant to the disease.
I was concerned that the dose given to me was not Pfizer pharmaceuticals, but Moderna Spikevax; with a name like that, one would be a little perturbed.
However, I have been assured that no data prevails to suggest that this drug does not work with other vaccines. Relieved at that news, I trotted off to do some shopping!
For your own confidence in the booster, I’ll share that the only discomfort I’ve experienced has been a slightly painful injection site.
Maybe we should expect to have these booster jabs for many years to come. Hopefully, if we ever get to once-a-year inoculation, as with the flu vaccination, they will be given simultaneously!
Have you had a fourth booster yet? I’d love to know!
