- Reaction score
Dunno about anyone else, but I thought that the vaccine was free for everyone. In all the news stories I've seen about this, there wasn't any money being paid for them. Me? I got 2 shots of the Moderna vaccine, and again, didn't cost me a cent. But, that could also be because it was given to me by the VA. First shot of Moderna? Zero side effects, my arm didn't even hurt. Second shot of Moderna (and they warned me that the second shot was where the reactions could occur), and my arm was sore as hell for around 3 days, and I felt tired as hell for about 5 days. However, after I got over being tired, I was back to 100 percent.
As far as needing a 3rd booster shot? I can see why, as there are several variants that the virus has mutated to. If the VA calls me up and tells me that I need a booster shot, I'm going to take it.
Um, you don't pay for the shot when you get it. The gov't pays for it. The gov't gets their money from taxpayers, thus yea, you do pay for it.
So ensuring you always need "boosters" ensures a nice sustained cash flow off the taxpayers dime.
