The winner is those of us lucky enough to live in a time of such amazing technology

Of course, the health care system has tons of problems still. We can do better

Are you still alive? Yes? Then whichever vax you took is the winner.

There was a game being played?
 
2021-12-03 11:21:17 AM  
I got both the Pfizer adult and pediatric booster, I pushed a little kid out of the way at the last minute and took his shot just to be sure.
 
2021-12-03 11:22:05 AM  
I get better 5G reception with the Pfizer than the wife does with her Moderna.  Then again, her upload speeds are better than mine, so who knows?
 
2021-12-03 11:22:24 AM  
just had moderna as my booster and that was a way better experience then bloody AZ that left feeling as sick as a dog.

Did the same, for the same reason.  Figured sense mixing and matching is permitted, the only downside was slightly increased risk of side effects and potential upside was large.

Dang it.  SINCE mixing and matching is permitted....

The correct answer is vaccinated people.
 
2021-12-03 11:25:11 AM  
I got Pfizer, the rest of my family got Moderna.  My daughter contracted COVID and passed it on to me back in mid-summer.  So 50% of us were fully protected by Moderna, 25% had Moderna fail and the other 25% had Pfizer fail.

Cool fact:  My daughter's boyfriend's mother is one of the leading scientists who helped develop the Moderna vaccine.  We were all vaccinated before the two of them even met.

Because for some the vaccine is political and politics in 2021 isn't about doing the right thing for America. It's about beating the other guy no matter the cost.

SpectroBoy: Johnson and Johnson recipients encouraged to update their wills.


I got the J &J and then got COVID.  But the one good thing was that I qualified for a booster earlier than most people due to getting the J &J.  I took the moderna.
 
2021-12-03 11:25:44 AM  
In yo  face, Pfizidiots!

But yeah, the winner is everybody.
 
2021-12-03 11:26:03 AM  
The biggest difference between Pfizer and Moderna is the dosage: 30 ug vs 100 ug.  This also helps explain why more people had (mild) side-effects with the Moderna.

2021-12-03 11:27:13 AM  
The dosage difference is probably the main cause.  Pfizer was conservative with the dosage to reduce side effects.  Moderna was much more aggressive.

With the boosters, it probably doesn't matter, as the Moderna dosage is half of what it was for the initial shots, making Moderna boosters pretty equivalent to Pfizer boosters.
 
2021-12-03 11:28:45 AM  
Moderna stock has been making me so much cash. I want to see more articles like this. Especially since it has been volatile now for the past 2 months or so. luckily i just keep buying at the dip and then see them recover a couple of days after.

Yup. Pfirst two Pfizer, booster Moderna.
 
2021-12-03 11:29:00 AM  
Just got off a zoom with some health reps. They said Moderna is slightly better too, but I just scheduled my booster of Pfizer in about half an hour from now. I don't like the idea of mixing them so I'll stick with team pfizer.

Like Biden's 2024 campaign slogan says, "You don't change horses mid-stream".

That seems... implausible. Like one of those stories you hear on the internet.

Also, just random and otherwise unremarkable enough to be believable because why would you make something like that up?

Pfizer was what was available in our area first, so that's what we went with. Scheduling for boosters is months out around here, no matter the shot you're looking for.

It's weird and sad that vaccination has descended into some kind of branding battle. They're all roughly equivalent. How Pfizer got initially labeled as the primo is a mystery

2021-12-03 11:33:00 AM  
They both blew past the standards set for most vaccines for efficacy - hell, so did the J&J.

This is moo point. Like a cow's opinion.

It doesn't matter. Just get vaccinated.

All Pfizer. Booster yesterday, slept like crap. I think my wife fared better on her Moderna booster, also done yesterday. Had my flu shot a couple of weeks ago. I haven't had a respiratory illness since spring of last year, hoping to hold on to that streak for this winter.

Such a dumb way to look at this.  The winner is humanity.  Every vaccine available to us is really, really, ridiculously good at keeping people out of hospital and dying. We all win.

This is just as dumb as all the people preferring one over the other early on like it was chic or something and feeling superior over the other one.
 
2021-12-03 11:36:36 AM  
I'm slightly confused. They only tracked infection data for the period between the shots? not counting infections after 2 or 3 doses?

only need clarification for purposed of snark. Not concerned about efficacy in the real world.
 
2021-12-03 11:36:38 AM  
Both.  Just get vaxxed with one or the other, doesn't really matter which.
