Shoot.

Too late. Should have done the shoot when you got the shot.

I believe you have undetected antibodies.

He can detect them by walking in the forest and listening out for falling trees.

If someone gets the vaccine and doesn't take a picture, do they develop immunity? @biobook
Actually, antibody production is increased in those who don't take a selfie.  The injection is into the deltoid muscle, which is used in the glenohumeral elevation required for raising the arm.  So when aiming the phone to take a picture, this muscle contracts and dislodges the vaccine, thereby decreasing its effectiveness in stimulating antibody production. 

I'm pretty sure I read this somewhere... Now where was that reference?....  Journal of Irreproducible Results, perhaps?

Figured I'd potentially regret not doing it by the books more than I'd regret being achy and tired for a day or 2.

Finally some evidence of natural selection weeding out selfie-takers :D

Got my 2nd shot.

What's the rush? Why didn't you wait until actually needed? If it's determined that vaccine immunity is only good for 6 months (as indications seem to be), then why not wait to have it longer (i.e. for documentation to be valid for longer)?

Did you get your antibody levels prior to 2nd shot, to compare to what they will be after the 2nd shot?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

1. Iceland had restrictions on the interval period. Plus I had half a thought to go there next week.
2. Nope. But my guess is they're >250 that the test can measure.

I'm no statistician, but considering that 99.68% of people took selfies and the efficacy rate nonetheless, the vaccines potentially could have a 10765% efficacy rate instead of the lowly 94%.

Just got my first dose (Moderna) today. Had Covid 6 months ago. So far not feeling any aches or pains.

Set in for me overnight. Lasted for 36 hours or so.

So let us know in a few days how #2 compared to #1.
When I had googled this a couple weeks ago, I found many people posting "I had covid, and had a strong reaction to the first vaccine dose, should I skip the second?"  But I found almost nobody following up with what they decided, and whether the response to the second dose would be worse, better, or the same as the first.

My father had Covid and got the Pfizer vaccine a couple of months later. With the first dose he ran a slight fever the next day. The second dose, nothing.

Pfizer has fewer side effects.
