Thank you for posting that poll, Alstro. It encouraged me to think about my situation. So far, I'm the only one who voted "waiting for more data," although it's also true that I'm not at 6 months post my 2nd Pfizer shot yet.

I had Covid in late December 2020. Then I got the Pfizer shots in March and April. Do I NEED a booster? I know..."ask your doctor." In my experience, if I ask 3 doctors I'll get 3 different opinions.

Don't forget....flu season is here. Maybe a flu shot should be my priority.

I try hard to get the best medical advice and follow it. But I believe that I'm best off adding my own judgement to the decision.

Does anybody know how many people have gotten the Pfizer booster since the FDA approval? In new drug trials they would call that a Phase 4 study....and it would not be unprecedented for there to be unexpected adverse reactions.

Having said that, if I DIDN'T have the protection afforded by a Covid infection plus 2 Pfizer shots, I'd feel a much greater sense of urgency to get the booster.
