I dunno whether to get the vaccine. I keep hearing horror stories of people getting bad reactions to it and people saying it's worse than just getting covid. I dunno what to believe.

Have you had it? Do you recommend it?

Have you caught covid without being vaccinated? How bad was it and how old are you?

At first everyone was offered a vaccine. Now only old people are. Are the younger people still protected by the vaccine they had years ago, or are they equivalent to unvaccinated now?

No, I caught it a few months after my second boost. Barely felt it -- only the tests confirmed I had it. 66y.

Last time I checked with REAL health-care providers, everyone could still be vaxxed, but that it was more highly recommended for people like me.
