Covid Boosters?

Covid Boosters?

How is everyone feeling about the Covid boosters? I had the regular first 2 shots, but due to passing out the day after my second shot my oncologist said that she didn’t advise me getting the boosters

It sounds like you had a severe reaction to the COVID shots. Your oncologist is wise in advising you not to get the boosters. Although I had side effects from all 4 of my Moderna shots (3 full-strength; 1 booster) - they were not severe. Since I am on Calquence (treatment for CLL), my oncologist advised that I also get the 2 Evusheld shots. His office provided the shots - and amazingly, I had no side effects. Sending prayers that you will soon be breathing and feeling better. 🙏
