I got my second booster (Pfizer) about three weeks ago. No side effects, which was a very good feeling.

I've had the primary series and the first booster.  I had Covid in early June (an ultra mild case).  My doctor told me to wait a bit before getting the new booster since I had some immunity from the infection.
Echoing James’s question, did the doctor suggest how long to wait? I also had a mild case in mid-July but definitely want the next booster. Last one I got was New Year’s Eve.


Usually 3-6 months (enough time for the antibodies to get along but not long enough that you're still exposed).

I caught a relatively mild case (Swine Flu kicked my ass back in 09 and it was significantly worse) the first week in August, so I will likely get the booster before Winter Break (while the children are off campus, conflicting with going to see Elton John at Dodger Stadium mid-november).

/The marital unit, OTOH, still hasn't gotten Covid19 yet, and she's been more sociable than me.

His first comment was to wait until the booster with omicron was out (it wasn't a thing when I last saw him). But he said 3-6 months after the infection because the natural immunity is good.  I figured I would get the second booster in mid-late October along with the flu shot.  My last booster was in last October.

But I took my dad to get his booster shot yesterday.  (Somehow, he did not catch Covid from me when I visited last, even though we drove in a car unmasked for 4 hours together when I didn't realize I had it)

OK.  When would you go if you got booster 2?

I wanna say the guidance is three months from onset of symptoms. Some doctors have said four, but I think official CDC guidance is three. We looked into it because we had it in May.

Echoing Jamesís question, did the doctor suggest how long to wait? I also had a mild case in mid-July but definitely want the next booster. Last one I got was New Yearís Eve.

At this point, do make sure you can get the Omicron version though, as they are starting to become widely available - Walgreens stores at the minimum have been sending me email blasts telling me to sign up. (As I mentioned previous, way ahead of them. :))

Doing the same on Saturday.

I am definitely in the minority of people in my circle in that I haven't had COVID-19, and I'm planning to keep it that way.

Got my 5th (Moderna bivalent) shot; just passed T+72hr with nothing worse than the typical slightly sore arm. (Back in 2021, Moderna #2 put me in bed with fever for four days.)

Yup, got mine yesterday too, plus my flu shot, same time, same arm. Arm's sore and tired, feeling a wee bit sluggish and maybe a hair fevered but that's it. More importantly, I'll be good to go for the Kraken game on Tuesday.
