Thank you for your thorough response. It makes sense to give COVID vaccines first since it is most relevant currently; however, we will need to give meningitis shots first as it is required for her college health records and registration. I was worried that the order could potentially be harmful in the long run, but I am very relieved to hear that that is not the case.
We are looking at getting Pfizer actually. As you mentioned, J&J (and also moderna) were much more rough and led to worse symptoms in general.
I’m so glad my daughter chose to stay in state. She will be a long drive from home but it is certainly better than having to fly across the country. I’m trying to make the most of it and spend as much time as possible with her this summer. Care packages are a fantastic idea!
