One of my sons got his Moderna booster in June. He was to leave for Japan to start teaching a month later, and the Japanese government required that he be tested 4 days before leaving. He was positive. A lot of good that did him to get the booster.

Luckily, he was able to fly with a second group 3 weeks later but we were all agonizing until the second test because we know people who have inexplicably still tested positive a couple of weeks later.

My son and I have appointments scheduled for tomorrow. I had scheduled for Tuesday, but they canceled it because they didn't get their shipment yet. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

A couple weeks after this booster, I think I am going to give up the mask while teaching, but we've all been so cautious due my husband's liver transplant in January -- we don't want to bring any kind of germ home, COVID or a cold or anything. I teach student teachers, and they're all out there picking up all sorts of infections from the kiddos they're working with. So, I may still keep wearing the mask. It's been really nice to not have been sick with anything at all for the past 2.5 years, but I hate teaching with a mask.

I got the updated booster and a flu shot yesterday. I'm tired, but can't tell if I'm more tired than I typically am or if it's just the status quo after a busy week.

I didn't have any after effects from the shots (I also got the flu shot at the same time). It seems to less noticeable with each booster.

I just got a flu shot last week. I need to call to see if it's okay to get my second shingles shot now. Which ticks me off because I got the vaccine in 2013 and got shingles 18 months later. Then I got shingles again last January and my doctor told me that the old one wasn't so great and I should get the new one (2 doses).

I got the flu shot and the new booster a week ago. No side effects other than sore injection site with the flu shot. I had the original shingles shot and have been fine. Would get the new one but Medicare won't pay for it!
