who says it is? everyone i know here in FL has moderna, save a few who are holding out because they prefer the single-shot idea of J&J.

as long as the vaccine works, who gives a damn?

I got Pfizer because that is what the hospital was offering the day of my appointment. I didn't go shopping.

Phizer is the good vaccine.  There is a chance it gives you a prehensile tail.

Moderna gas a probability of giving you a larger penis, but only for women .

J&J just makes peanut butter taste like smoked Salmon

Once Drew started getting TFers to the front of the line with Pfizer vaccinations, leaving the Moderna for liters (at least for the few who aren't anti-vaxxers).

All I care about is that I'm fully vaccinated

After consulting with Ryan Reynolds in customer service, I was told that Pfizer worked better with my Mint Mobile Clever AF 5G cellular plan.

Moderna is more for Verizon customers.

First to market, very high efficacy, and no strange clotting disorders associated with it (yet).

Moderna is equally good if you can get it.

J&J seems to be a decent vaccine but you are settling for a single dose, skipping the extra immune boost from encountering an antigen for the second time.

J&J only has a 66% protection rate. Moderna & Pfizer have nearly 95%.

I got a Pfizer. Suck it, peasants.
 
2021-04-18 2:15:21 AM  
Is it? I got Moderna because that's what was offered when I was at the doctor's office. People had been shopping around (thanks, Boomers!) and taking the first appointment they could get, then cancelling or not showing up to their appointments at my mom's office. She works for a doctor. So, they had extra vaccines that day and asked me if I wanted one at my appointment. I said, "Does a chicken have a pecker? Yes!" It never even entered my mind that it might be dangerous.

I got what the state distributed to the hospital for the vaccine clinics, which was Pfizer in my town.  I don't know how the state determines which vaccine clinic gets what batch of vaccines, I just rolled with it.  The people I know who got the Moderna skipped ahead by going to Lubbock for their vaccines.  I don't personally know anybody who got the J&J.  So I don't know about the "prestige" thing, it's all just the luck of the draw.
 
2021-04-18 2:18:26 AM  
I'm getting my first shot (Pfizer) on Tuesday. The reason I'm getting the Pfizer shot is because that's what they have here in Alaska and I didn't really have much say in it. They just told me I'd be getting that one.

Pretty much this. I would've liked the J&J because it was one dose, but I had to sign up to specifically get the J&J, otherwise I would get Pfizer. After reading about its poor efficacy, I did not sign up for it. Moderna wasn't available only Pfizer. That's fine. I'd rather have a 95-96% efficacy versus a 66%.

Yeah, but J&J protects against all the variants, and even if you get sick it's mild enough to avoid hospitalization.

I, and many thousands of others locally, got the Pfizer vaccine from the county under a large canopy set up for drive-trough in the parking lot of a nearby sports arena.

Ain't nothing elite about that.

We ended up with Pfizer because we took the first appointment we could get, and that's what they had. In my personal case I'm glad it was one of the two-dose mRNA vaccines because I still have some of the long term effects of my first go-around with COVID. "Not dead" is not much of a consolation if I get diabetes or some of the other side effects you can end up with after a moderate case.

Yep - welcome to the tent so to speak.  Just got my first dose done yesterday in the lovely Lake Elsinore Storm parking lot at the stadium.

/also Pfizer, cause it's what they had that bad
//kicked my ass pretty good - that was not a fun fever/oof night
///still a hell of a lot better than the alternative - twiddling thumbs till the 7th and my second shot

I got J&J cuz it was the vaccine they had at the clinic when I walked in.

I figured I'd get it because I'm not hight risk: Single, healthy, working from home, no reason to leave the house. Let those who need to interact with large groups of people in close quarters get the high efficacy vaccines. Im ok with the shot I got.

Are the Pfizer elite hooked on their blue product too?

Here there is a limited supply of Pfizer and lots of the AstraZeneca one.  They have banned AZ for people under 50 very recently and are now trying to figure out what to do next.  AZ isn't used for people with a long list of mostly heart and blood related issue and now there is a supply issue for Pfizer.  On the other hand there are only 10 active cases in the entire state and they are all in quarantine so it makes sense to send the vaccines other places.

You're lucky.  We had over 200 new cases just today (and have been averaging around 200 new positive tests daily since March), and finally hit 4000 deaths.  In a state of two million people.
 
2021-04-18 2:46:30 AM  
all the religious fundies were running around screaming that the J&J one had an aborted baby in every vial for a while.  i can't imagine that helped their acceptance rate.

Human beings are a strange lot, aren't we? NZ is going to be all Pfizer, but we've only just started our rollout - it only really gathers steam in the later half of the year.
 
2021-04-18 2:47:55 AM  
what REALLY matters about getting ANY covi vaccine is will it stop you from dying?

While J&J's vaccine has 66.3% effectiveness overall and 74.4% effectiveness in the United States, it has "100% efficacy against hospitalization and death from the virus," said Dr. Irons. "That's really what we have to focus on."

so, from that perspective, get any vaccine you CAN.
