Third Vaccine Dose Chat Thread
With the recent authorization of a third shot of the mRNA vaccines for immunocompromised folks (in the US), I am just curious to see what the response is in different parts of the world. The CDC authorized third doses last week, and the team at UCSF (where my mom is a patient) followed suit and immediately advised third shots for transplant patients. She was able to walk in without an appointment or pre-authorization and get her shot at her local pharmacy. Has your experience been the same or different with your care team? Have you had access to a third dose if your doctors have recommended it?
I am also curious about side effects if you have gotten the third shot. My mom reported a sore arm along with feeling “kinda crummy”, but had no fever or chills. These side effects were similar to her second dose. Did you experience similar, better, or worse side effects with the third shot? If you suffered a drop in oxygen saturations previously, have you had that same experience with dose 3?
