I have the same question. Frankly was not expecting such a strong reaction, and if the second one were expected to be this bad, I would have serious doubts about taking it (had covid already, so possibly one shot is enough).
We have a month to figure it out. If you come across any data on this, pls post, as will I bl"n

At this point, why would anyone who previously had Covid-19 take more than a single dose of the vaccine?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The only reason (at least compelling one IMHO) is to have the vaccine documentation for purposes of traveling etc.

Yup.
Other potential problem will be countries not recognizing your vaccination if you didn't take both doses within the timeframe.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Basically an extension of the same reason, you'd be taking the 2nd dose (on time) so you can travel.

In my wife's case she never tested positive for Covid, nor had any symptoms, just tested positive for antibodies once, so you have to add into the equation that maybe that test was a false positive. Or do you? I don't know myself how often they gave false positives.

So there's no reason to get it until and unless that becomes a reality. So far other than getting 2 doses in Israel, I haven't seen anywhere in the world where it would help. Hence postpone.

I doubt that's somewhere I would visit while I have young children at home.

Also, they might be European (i.e. slow), and maybe there won't be such a huge market, but CDC cards aren't really hard to manufacture.

So you go with the herd mentality to just do as told whether it makes sense or not. :P
