    "What happens when previously infected individuals are vaccinated? The observations in several studies, including those by Stamatatos et al. and Reynolds et al., are that an impressive synergy occurs—a “hybrid vigor immunity” resulting from a combination of natural immunity and vaccine-generated immunity. When natural immunity to SARS-CoV-2 is combined with vaccine-generated immunity, a larger-than-expected immune response arises".

    When I booked my second vaccine appointment, I was offered either a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, or a dose of the other one (starts with an 'M'), which is supposed to be just as effective. I did ponder whether ME might cause problems with a different vaccine or with a second dose of the same one. I doubt that there's anyone in the world who can answer that question, so I went for option two, since it's more available. Even if I do get a severe reaction, I won't know whether the other option would have been better.

    I wasn't able to read the document properly, but there seems to be no reference to auto-immunity or adverse effects. Does anyone know if there are? (I searched the page.)

    I want to know if there are adverse effects in auto-immune people, as many of us are. (I'm fairly sure that I have had the virus too.)

    You might be interested in Dr. Laurent Arnaud's study trying to identify potential side effects of COVID vaccinations in lupus patients and providing regular updated summaries.

    Yes, Moderna. I'm heading in for the shot today.
