OK, we did it

Whatever the side effects are, they are likely to be less than the side effects of getting Covid or long Covid. We’ve been lucky enough to get Moderna for all 5 shots. It is a few percentage points better than Pfizer. Our side effects have been minimal and with one exception gone in 24 hours. For reason unknown the first booster side effects lasted a bit over 48 hours, injection site pain, low grade temp, back pain, myalgias (muscle aching) and fatigue. When and if the next booster is available we will be getting that too. We are holding off on the flu shot until mid October, since it only lasts for around 6 months and flu season hasn’t started yet. FWIW, we continue to mask with N-95 on planes and in theaters even though it is no longer required. Although we hate it, it is a minor inconvenience and does lower the odds.
