Hello,

I just started a new job in a hospital. I am not a clinician but work more on the administration side.

We received an email from our CEO today that we could possibly get our covid vaccines by next Wednesday ( every staff member not just the nurses and docs, I'm shocked ). Yes we can decline. They approved my medical exemption for the flu shot.

I still don't know what to do. Yes I do want to take the vaccine eventually. I don't want to have to wear a mask for the rest of my life, not be able to travel, go to ball games, concerts etc or have future potential jobs and promotions compromised if I don't have the shot. I believe alot of us in the Lyme community are grappling with this choice.

I am wondering if I should wait a few more months? Last year I didn't have a good experience with vaccines and got severely sick after, took well over a year to find a fraction of relief. I am getting better though, thank you Jesus. I think working and staying busy and meeting new ppl is really helping me, mentally too.

I don't want this covid vaccine to set me back again God for bid even worse then what happened to me last year...that is terrifying me.

I should call my LLMD next week and inquire aboot it with her as well.

Thanks 💚

That's awful. I've heard that some of the future vaccines will be different, so maybe one of those might be safer?

I'm not going to get it, but I'm not working and not planning to fly, etc.

Best of luck to you!!

PS .. I have MCAS and that is the main reason I won't be getting one.

Mountainsky-if you have had bad experiences with vaccines in the past, you might wait awhile. If the workers around you get vaccinated that will help protect you.

Just my humble opinion.

I can't take the vaccine I've had anaphylaxis few times and many allergies. This is what I do along with zinc. This man has made other videos also on vit d3 and he had same idea I did on childhood vaccines providing protection against covid. I get a flu shot though and no problems and also protects that I'm hearing and reading.

Research and read studies and do what you need to do.

I am also asking my doctor for ivermectin to use in case I get COVID.

I am currently taking Vit D and Zinc and will add melatonin if I get the virus.
