Hopefully you realize that waiting to take a second shot could (potentially, it's unknown now) lead to your second shot being less effective. The medical establishment  does not yet have a consensus on this issue, so recommendations vary.
Right, this is why I'll probably get the 2nd shot. For example Iceland has strict requirements on how long you can wait for the Pfizer or AZN 2nd shot and still enter without quarantine.

Exactly. Taking the 2nd shot is all about the actual benefit in avoiding restrictions (as was the first shot, which performed exactly as expected). For me it's all about removing restrictions in Israel. I might even choose to get 2 shots in Israel, if that's what is likely to get me a green pass faster than any other conceivable option.

As to effectiveness. I am glad the medical professionals are willing to say we don't know, and I'll leave it at that.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

By the time they know it might be too late for maximal/optimal effectiveness. I don't think it's a big deal, but some experts do.

Had covid a year ago. Still have plenty of antibodies. Got the Moderna vaccine today.

Reception is much stronger....

If the cdc would change their recommendations, that those that recovered from The Virus only need one vaccine. How would I prove that I had the Virus? I had it before testing was available.

My guess is that they won't change their recommendation despite the science behind it. It's easier to just tell everyone to get 2 than to start making case by case exceptions.

Especially since vaccine supply doesn’t seem to be such a major issue.

Not if we need a new vaccine every 6 months

We’re not in that place yet. Even if we get there there might be sufficient supply if other vaccines (e.g. Novovax, AZN, and potentially others) get approved and can ramp up their domestic production/distribution.

The other thing is that if COVID becomes endemic but rare (outbreaks every now and then here and there) then the 6-month vaccination recommendation won’t be set in stone, it’ll be every 6-9 months realistically with priority/frequency more rigid for the elderly and those at-risk.

How likely is it that we'll need every 6 months? Trials started nearly a year ago, so they should know if it lasts that long, no?

Just seeing this thread now. My father is in a weird situation in that he got Covid a few days after he got shot #1, and then he got monoclonal antibodies. So he hasn't gotten shot #2 yet, as he was told to wait 90 days, though he does plan to get it then.

My wife got the first Moderna shot yesterday, she has 102 fever the whole day and is vomiting, she never had COVID symptoms, but tested positive for antibodies after Sukkos (tested negative for antibodies after Pesach).

Does anyone know if she should expect such a strong reaction if she takes a second dose?

I am curious did you have a bad reaction? Because yesterday (day after shot) I felt as horrible as I ever felt with Covid, in bed. Course that lasted for two weeks and I am BH feeling better today, hopefully all the ay back in another day or two.

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).
