About half of the people I know, including nurses, seem very reluctant to get the vaccination. Surprisingly, this includes different political demographics. What better way to settle it than by coming to a Saints message board.

edit: Geez I somehow allowed people to pick more than one answer on a yes/no poll. Doh!

i can’t explain based on eligibility, but college students are super spreaders, so it makes sense from a public health standpoint

For those who have had the Anthrax vaccination, how does this compare in reference to pain/soreness? IIRC, the 2nd of the first 6 was pretty rough, then one or two of the annual boosters was comparable to the 2nd.
I've had the anthrax series, it was worse than the COVID vaccine. I got my first shot yesterday (Moderna), and right now, the spot where the shot was feels like a got shot by a paintball at close range about an hour ago. Woke up this morning a little tired, but otherwise, it's no big deal.

Thanks for the info. I've also had the Anthrax series and numerous yearly boosters. So not as bad as Anthrax, cool.

Just a random thought here...considering the temperatures these have to be kept at, is the injection cold?

One of the major health care system providers in Louisiana recently started using some of their "unwanted" Pfizer vaccine, that had been set aside for Healthcare Workers on members of the general public who are over 70 years old. This is great news. If the healthcare workers don't want the shots, they should go to the next people on the list.

I have been saying for a while, the point where we run out of "very" willing arms will happen sooner than most people think. People who REALLY want the vaccine in Louisiana and who are in the next group up, can get it if they really try. I have three relatives in that above 70 age group, that group was just opened up for vaccination last week, they all got their first shots over the last three days. (One Moderna and two Pfizer.) I have another relative who was too cheap to drive more than 15 miles.....
