I also experienced a covid. At first, I was very worried about getting infected and started to take great care of my health. I started buying various vitamins to strengthen my immunity on Canadian pharmacy . It really helped me because when I got sick I only lost my sense of smell and taste for a few days. I think it's all because I'm young, I do sports regularly and I try to eat more healthy food. It was all before vaccination. And now I have been vaccinated and I am sure that everything will be fine. I wish everyone good health, because this is the most important thing!

Injection # 3.
Sinovac, Moderna, Moderna, all were full strength.
# 3 no unpleasant side effects up until and including today, 3-days after the jab.

The hospital took another labs which I did feel [emoticon] Five vials.

A friend also got his second Moderna shot after 2 Sinovac jabs. No after effects.

But a hospital nutritionist told me oral iron supplements were ineffective without taking vitamin C concurrently. I was diagnosed as being anemic years ago.

Do you filter visitors to your home? How?

It takes a very high pressure to sieve them.

I do carry hand sanitizer. I've had one visitor every six months other than my house keeper. I meet them at the door while wearing an n-95 mask and hand them the sanitizer.

We are having Thanksgiving at our house. We expect 9 people all vaccinated (most with boosters) except for a sister-in-law who has advanced ovarian cancer and can't be vaccinated due to ongoing chemo.

No sieves here [emoticon]

Very interesting quotes made by AstraZeneca's CEO regarding efficacy of the AZ vaccine. This agrees with my plan to use a multi-vaccine, Prime-Boost regimen.

AZ was not available but a similar type modified virus primer was. SINOVAC. Note that the CDC and NIH acknowledge Britain's low incidence of infection even after 6 months have passed.

OPINION: There is little reason to be frustrated by Pfizer or Moderna's longevity. There are studies underway to vaccinate with modified virus serums after completion of mRNA innoculation. I am hopeful that the variation will produce long term protection.

But it is important to follow the CDC and FDA recommendation until this is sorted out.

Couldn’t longer the time between prime boost in Canada and the UK than in the USA (implemented by those countries due to vaccine shortages) be the source of the difference in declining immunity? Doesn’t the studies of waning immunity following mRNA homologous prime boost in Canada vs USA support this (NYT)? Wouldn’t this suggest that the 6 months between 2nd and 3rd homologous doses would yield slower waning immunity?

I’m scheduled for my homologous Moderna booster next week (Moderna has the highest effectiveness against the circulating variants); my preference for a booster would have been the Moderna or Novavax vaccines (in clinical trials) that are based upon a different variant (I think alpha) than Wuhan. These new vaccines would induce a boost in antibody levels and broaden the cross reactivity to other variants. My ideal booster would be based upon Delta since this is the variant with the lowest Moderna mRNA effectiveness.

I’m getting a booster because I have moderate asthma (I’m allergic to dog dander [emoticon]).

The Moderna booster (1/2 the dose as the original course) has definitely stimulated my immune system. Symptoms are similar to those after the second dose:

Elevated resting heart rate (mine is typically low in the upper 40s)
Weak
Body aches
Elevated body temperature
Insomnia
Mild headache

Both of us had Pfizer and the boosters with only a mildly sore arm like after getting a flu shot.

Back
My laptop committed blue screen Seppuku.

Apparently the dose/timing phenomenon works with the heterogeneous primer and subsequent mRMA protocol. I was fortunate to have had access to the killed virus Sinovac vaccine as the primer, and two 100 ug Moderna boosters. The folks I chatted with informed me that all four virologists (3) AstroZeneca (1) Cansino had no 2nd booster side effects other than a mildly d
sore injection site.

I was fully prepared to endure another 4 days, out of commission due to fatigue and appetite suppression.

Day 2 passed then day three. A mildly tender injection site but zero fatigue.

But I must repeat that four full months elapsed between primer and 1st booster then 3 months between Boosters Moderna 2 and 3. Again both boosters were full strength. Five out of five identical 3rd jabs is an eyebrow raiser.

The fact that the homogeneous primer is noted as a particularly effective T cell generator did not escape me.

Having based my limited virus education on study of the 1918-1919 pandemic which meant exhaustive study, I note that the Pathogen behaved similarly to what is being reported currently. The credible report of a New York subway passenger boarding a train and passing by three doctors in apparently good health only to fall ill and die with a high fever less than a half-hour later is most curious. If a virus were to mutate in a self destructive manner I can't think of a better way to ensure oblivion than to shorten its transmissability by brief infectivity transmission time.

The Spanish Flu was an H1N1 pathogen. Within a month of the New York City subway episode transmission degraded in numbers.

I have hope that the less aggresive Ómicron variant is a signal that we are seeing the beginning of the end of the ravage.

Major pharmaceutical and research laboratories have an avalanche of data to process. Hetero primer Homo booster theory is intriguing. I hope research manages to answer questions regarding other pathogens like virulent influenza.
