Hello @loribmt! Thank you so much for your detailed and genuine response. It’s certainly tough sending my first child off to college- trying to hold off on the tears. I regret not finishing off the vaccinations earlier as it seems my daughter will be spending all summer getting these shots. 🙁

Just curious- why do you recommend getting COVID vaccinations before the meningitis one? Is it safer that way or is it simply more efficient?

Appreciate your help. Thank you again! 🙂

In my personal opinion and from my experience with my transplant team...they felt it was more important to receive the covid vaccinations before progressing with my vaccination protocol. It’s front and center in the world right now and we all need to get vaccinated. That’s why it was my suggestion. ☺️ It was also on my directions to space the other vaccines 30 days from the covid vax.

And, if your daughter has the opportunity to choose, (from experience and comments from friends and family members who have had their covid vax) it seems as though Pfizer has the least unpleasant side effects. I’m not promoting one over the other. I’m just relying on reports from several younger women in my orbit having the J&J that the side effects were pretty rough the first few days. My 36 year old daughter as well, had the J&J and was pretty miserable.

And really, your daughter won’t be spending all summer getting the shots. ☺️ It’s only 3 times. I’m betting she’ll fill in the rest of the time with all her preparations for college. And you’ll be busy right along with her trying to be all stoic and supportive. Is the campus far from home?? Will she be close enough for visits...from parents or to go home for a weekend?
And, there are always care packages you can send to feel closer. 💕
