This afternoon my wife and I received the third shot of COVID-19 shot of ours. We got the first one with AZ in Taipei in early May when the second outbreak of the pandemic has not yet taken place in Taiwan. Then we went to the States, my daughter took us to have a Pfizer vaccine the end of last month, and the medical center prearranged another appointment on today for the second shot.
My wife and I have talked over if we should take intense shots within such a short period of time. In principle, we prefer to delay the second shot of Pfizer partly because it is so convenient to have a shot anytime. (The pharmacy at a supermarket in my neighborhood provides the inoculation service: just walk in, no appointment is needed.) But yesterday morning the medical center called and reminded us of the appointment prearranged.
At last, we decided to go for the shot.
PS There have been a lot of reports concerning the efficacy and side effects of different vaccines, how many shots should take, and even the issues if people should or should not take those vaccines without fully completed clinic trials. They are all perplexing questions to ordinary people like us.
