Eric, sorry to hear about your relative. The NHS has already reported that they are treating patients with what they call “long Covid. The effect of this virus will only be understood in the months and years to come.

When it’s offered take the vaccine 👍

I just got my second dose an hour ago. I have heard many stories of people having a reaction to the second one. I’ve been drinking lots of water. I don’t know if it will help, but it can’t hurt. I’ll report back if I have any problems. Feels good to be fully vaccinated though!!!

I got my first dose yesterday (mRNA) . since I'm a chemotherapy recipient, they allow to have the second dose within 21-28 days.

I did better with the second than I did with the first, but my wife had fever and chill with the second.  It varies a lot from person to person.
