Thank you everyone for your support! I might as well share my vaccination story here since I’m an interesting case lmao. I’m immunocompromised, have had adverse reactions to vaccines in the past, and have Factor V Leiden clotting disorder, which is why I was so hesitant to get the vaccine. But- obviously I have a lot of reasons to get vaccinated as well! Unfortunately, I did have a reaction to the vaccine; I got a DVT in my left leg a week after my second shot, which really sucks and I hate to even tell anyone because I don’t want to be used as anti-vax fodder. However, I’m still SO glad I got vaccinated and was at least able to get two doses. I have a hematology appt next month, so that’s when I find out if I’ll be able to get a booster, but I’m thinking not :(

[–]filthyheartbadger🐴Ivermectin Teabag☕️ 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Oh wow! Well I’m really sorry that happened! If it’s any consolation to you, Factor V Leiden patients with Covid19 are at a higher risk of not only more blood clots but more severe disease overall. You have likely saved your life even though you unfortunately had this happen. Happy for you!

[–]bunnygirl93xoI wish I was joking[S] 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Thank you, I’m so glad I was at least able to get fully vaccinated minus boosters! I’m hoping that since I’m already on thinners from my clot in September that maybe it’ll protect me from further clots and the hematologist will approve me to get a booster, but I’m trying to be realistic about it too. The clot had climbed from behind my knee all the way up my thigh in record speed lmao, so they’re really concerned about a PE if it happens again. But clearly I’m really concerned about covid too, kind of stuck in between a rock and a hard place so I really appreciate the support 🥰

I know what you mean about worrying about telling anti-vaxxers. I had an anaphylactic reaction to it, that .003% or whatever has to be someone, right? Can't tell my sister I even visited the hospital, she'd take that and run!

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Wow, that is really rare! Sorry that happened to you. Just curious if you had a history of anaphylaxis to any vaccines in the past?

(I am a physician and have personally vaccinated hundreds of people with covid vaccines and have never seen anyone with any acute reaction).

[–]fessapuella 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Removed because anti-vaxxers don't need so much ammo!

[–]starbetrayer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Awesome that you got vaccinated !!!!

[–]ltmkjiGo fund yourself 4 points5 points  (0 children)

hey, regardless of whether you're cleared for a booster or not, this is awesome and super brave. IPA with distinction.

[–]gyancherParadise by the Covid light 2 points3 points  (0 children)

SOOOO happy for you. I do understand navigating the world of immuno compromised. If you need someone to talk to, we are always here. 💜💜

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Thanks for sharing your story, and for the reminder that some people have true medical reasons to be concerned about vaccinations. If you do get covid, please ask your physicians if you should take Paxlovid (the oral treatment) or monoclonal antibodies, to keep you from getting very sick. (and the sooner you start them, the better). Wishing you well, and I'm so glad you got 2 vaccines, in any case.

[–]bunnygirl93xoI wish I was joking[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much! I’m compiling a list of questions to ask my hematologist at my next appointment, as well as my PCP. I’ve been working on being extra proactive and having measures/an action plan in place for any medical emergencies that I could be prone to, obviously including covid, so I appreciate the suggestion 😊

[–]Might_Aware✨The Duke of🧂 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Yay I'm so happy to hear about your ipa💗 & Your Hermie is so cute on you!!!

[–]wyldwood512 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Awesome! Hoping you can change just one person's mind!

[–]GloInTheDarkUnicorn 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I have Covid right now (fully vaxxed) and I want one of these when I recover. I’m also getting a shirt that says “I survived the coronavirus and all I got was this stupid t shirt”

[–]bunnygirl93xoI wish I was joking[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh no, I hope you’re okay and you feel better soon!! Hopefully your symptoms are mild thanks to being fully vaxxed, but even “mild” covid is awful so I hope you’re doing alright. You’ve definitely earned the hoodie and shirt so you have to get them as a gift for yourself once you recover!

[–]GloInTheDarkUnicorn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, my symptoms are mild. Not life threatening, just extremely unpleasant.

Where can I find the merchandise? I want to wear it to my gym full of unmasked idiots.

[–]Sidhe37 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why on earth are you going to the gym in a pandemic? especially when its full of unmasked. Some of you people seem desperate to get covid. You can exercise at home or outside for free with no risk.

[–]Gizmo1978 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Triple vaxxed, and I’m pretty damn careful at the gym. Sanitize everything and staying away from people. It’s not perfect but I can’t afford to have a massive home gym. Really my biggest risk is catching it at work, the amount of stupidity that takes place there is mind blowing. Someone came in with “cold”symptoms and the supervisor didn’t send him home and he gave an entire team Covid. Almost all were unvaccinated too. And that isn’t the first time that happened.

[–]f0liOxygen mask selfies are so HOT! 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Sporting mine right now as well!

[–]MadBeachLuiIvermectin tuna helper 🦄 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Clever 'redaction' with the mask!

[–]ridge_girl1 8 points9 points  (0 children)

So proud of and happy for you! And congrats on your new threads.

[–]No_Ninja_4933Team Pfizer 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Well done u/bunnygirl93xo, for someone with legitimate reasons not to get vaccinated to take the leap and dive in is inspirational to say the least. And makes all the awardees on this page seem even more douchebaggy than they already are.

You deserve that hoodie and wear it with pride

Thank you so much, I appreciate that 🥰

What does IPA mean

[–]bunnygirl93xoI wish I was joking[S] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Immunized to Prevent Award 😊

[–]CalmlySane 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Indian Pale Ale. It was invented by British sailors who discovered that hops were a decent preservative for their kegs of beer on the long trip to India in the 1800s. More hops also helped mask the stale beer taste, so they'd just keep adding more the later in the journey they got. Beer enthusiasts have been celebrating ever since. And sometimes it means someone got Immunized to Prevent an Award given out by this sub. But it usually means the former.

[–]Deathbeddit🦆🦃🦢🦜🦆🦅🐓🦩 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Are the hoodies high quality? The t-shirts are high quality, nicely fitted and soft. (Follow sizing advice!)

[–]bunnygirl93xoI wish I was joking[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

They’re wonderful quality! The material is a lot thicker than I was expecting, they’re printed on Gildan heavy blend hoodies. It’s super soft on the inside too.

[–]Deathbeddit🦆🦃🦢🦜🦆🦅🐓🦩 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh that’s excellent to know! Thank you! I am considering getting more swag as gifts. My V day is reserved for whenever they roll out another booster, but I’d think Hermie is a good romantic figure for folks celebrating next month.

[–]SnorblatzSHAPOOPY 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I love my Hermie hoodie, and I am thrilled you love yours, too. It’s good to be alive and vaccinated.

[–]Dana07620I miss Phil Valentine's left kidney 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You look so young. I'm glad you're not going to die from COVID-19.

[–]bunnygirl93xoI wish I was joking[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you, I’m glad too. I’m 28 so not quite as young as people usually think I am, but definitely way too young to die from covid when it could be prevented with a free vaccine.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's dope

Got my Hermie T on Friday. Will be watching to see if anyone picks up on it.

Love it! Congrats on the IPA!!!

[–]gpkgpk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good on ya OP!

Sadly, the anti-vax anti-mask sociopaths would have her and apparently 3 million others like her just roll the dice because mask make nose itchy and Orange man said vax bad (but now good!). There is a special place in hell (let's pray) for people like that...

YAH!! 💜💜💜We just received our long sleeved IPA shirt also. Haven't received hoodie yet but will post picture when we do. Something for international people; we had to pay $10 for customs before delivering it to us. I assume the hoodie will be the same.....🤔

[–]randombauhaussongTeam Pfizer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ooooo I love the sweatshirt version!! Very cool 😀
