Any of you who have read my prior posts in the last week on this subject know how I feel about this issue. We are all wondering if they will approve the third shot, when the fact is (as I found out) you can simply go and get it.
So I went online and searched for an open time at a place where it is available, chose my date and time, and got the shot yesterday morning. My first two shots were Moderna, and as I've reported the Quest test showed None. As I also found out from an Immunologist I saw about five days ago, the Quest test is deficient compared to Labcorp. This is because Quest is All or None, whereas Labcorp actually gives a measurement. So maybe my None with Quest would have shone a few antibodies with Labcorp. In any case the test result for me was bad.
My new Immunologist suggested I not re do Moderna and instead try Pfizer, so that is what I did. Its now close to 24 hours, and the only result is some soreness at the shot site. In four weeks I have an order to go and get the test for antibodies again, and we'll see where that goes.
I was pleased that the questions I had to answer, before the web site set my appointment, did not ask me if I had the vaccine already. So I didnt have to lie. When I went for the shot, the Pharmacist didnt ask me either if I had already had a shot. So why not go out there and get another shot too; it can't hurt you and it might help you.
