Has anyone here gotten the COVID vaccine?

Hi. Has anyone with severe COPD emphysema gotten the COVID vaccine yet?. I’m suppose to get one but I’m so scared.

  1. , Hello, I have had Moderna, 2 shots & booster with no side effects. I still wear my mask when around people and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Consult your doctor about the specifics of your fear if it will help you.

  2. I got both shots and the booster. I too was scared with having severe COPD, chronic kidney disease, Afibs, now colostomy bag. Two of my doctors convinced me by telling me if I didn’t get the Covid shot and I get Covid I will die. If I got the shots, came down with Covid I’d more than likely live. Took me one day to call and arrange for the shot. No regrets. People can have some Covid shot symptoms but I’ve had worse with flu. Good luck and do what is needed for yourself.

    1. I have had my first one as well a# the flu jab … no side affects but the pneumonia one hurt like hell 😳

    2. I have gotten two shots and a booster and nothing has made me feel safer since the pandemic began. COVID is very dangerous for us, but the vaccines are not. I had a big reaction-- but same as many other people and only for a day.


      1. Hi LROgal - thanks so much for sharing your experience using the COVID vaccinations and booster shot with the community. We appreciate your feedback!
        All the best,
