  1. I’m no expert, but here’s my take: Different companies were working at the same time on vaccines, so each one came out with the results of their studies and tests. Each has a different effectiveness, based on trials. Pfizer and Moderna are very close: Pfizer (95%) and Moderna (94.1%) — according to the CDC website (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/Moderna.html). As for a say on which brand you can get, you would have to research the places near you that are offering the vaccines. Here in Maryland, U.S., much of my family has received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. That was available, and we were fine with getting that one. But I encourage you to do research on your country’s Covid website, as well as scientific ones, such as the CDC.

  2. Looks like Pfizer and Moderna are the most successful now, so I guess I hope to get either one of those.
    But am I allergic to “polyethylene glycol” or any of the other ingredients in the vaccine? I have no clue; probably don’t even know what they mean.

    There has been a lot talk about the AstraZeneca one.
    For days, Denmark has been bragging that they were the first country to suspend that one, only to announce that it can be used on voluntary basis (but the nation cannot be blamed if anything goes wrong, of course).

    Furthermore, all these information sites like to use words such as “may”, “should”, “could”.
    I find it hard to see any meaning in vague terms like that. Who makes that accountable when things do go wrong?

    And I know, I know, I am way more skeptical than I should be 😉

  3. Sounds to me that you’re being smart about your health by asking these questions. And I think the info websites can be good for general guidance. But seeing a doctor who can look up your medical history would be the way to get specific advice on what would be good for you.
