True. The only choice here at this point is to get the vaccine - yes or no.The J&J vaccine will not be available in sufficient quantities to be shipped to most countries for quite some time. Probably avail only in North America first. This one might be a good one if it turns out that a booster is needed each year or to reinforce what people have already received months down the road. Wondering how well it protects against the variants or if new vaccines will need to be developed for these. I'd be surprised if the DR gets any J&J anytime soon. Looks like full speed ahead here with the Sinovac and whatever the WHO is peddling these days.
Provided there are no negative health effects, I still believe some protection is better than none even if the vaccine received isn't perfect. Practicality dictates that you have to receive what is available at the time or choose to not be vaccinated at all. I don't recall anyone saying they had a choice as to which vaccine they received here in the DR. Roll up your sleeve and get jabbed has been the only option. Seems the Govt here has been using the AZ vaccine at exclusive clinics for healthcare workers, teachers, military and the police. The general population has been given Sinovac. Things can and could change but for now no choice offered here unless you specifically seek out a clinic that has a particular vaccine supply and no other - not an easy task.
I had a bit of tenderness at injection area for two or three days, same as our maid but my wife and MIL had no reactions at all. Second shot next Thursday.Has there been any report of a serious after effect from the Sinovac vaccine shots here? I have heard nothing, and when I got my first one absolutely no after effect at all. Get the second one Tuesday, so I will see what happens then. I expect nada.....................
"And have not heard of serious illness either"................ And now you have.This just proves my point. Digging all over the internet one comes up. Millions have taken these vaccines. Anyone that passed math in school can figure that out for themselves......................
Who do you believe?
The Chinese vaccine expert later contradicted his comments about the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine, saying his comments were misinterpreted.www.ibtimes.sg
None of the side effects are long term.It is my understanding that if there is going to be any adverse side effects from the Sinovac vaccine, they will most likely occur after the 2nd dose. I believe that the benefits of getting the 2nd shot outweigh the possibility of side effects, at least based on what I have read to date. I'm not aware of any issues in this country but I continue to check for those reports daily. If someone has an issue first hand I assume they will mention it. The date for their second dose is coming up for many who got their initial jab early in March. So some first hand experiences with the booster shot should begin to appear soon. Until there are reports of problems, there appears to be little justification for hesitancy.
Way too early to determine that.......................way too early.None of the side effects are long term.
