Covid-19 Vaccine Update

I’ve written a couple times about the Covid-19 vaccine ….. the search, the injections, lack of side effects, etc.

Here’s my timeline ……

Feb 9, 2021 – Initial injection of the MODERNA vaccine.

Mid Feb – Signed up for a Johns Hopkins Covid19 vaccines in “solid organ transplant” recipients. Since I’m a heart transplant recipient and I was encourage by my transplant team and also this was a low risk request, I happily signed up and was accepted into the study.

Mar 8, 2021 – Initial blood test to check for antibodies, 27 days post the initial Moderna shot.

Mar 9, 2021 – Received the SECOND dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Mar 12, 2021 – My test results came back, from 3/8/21 labs, as NEGATIVE for Covid-19 antibodies. I was admittedly a bit bummed out with that news, and I read on the initial study results that only about 17% of the folks tested were showing that antibodies had developed

April 9, 2021 – I had another lab drawn, a month post the second dose of the vaccine.

Apr 13, 2021 – I received my results from the 4/9/21 labs and I am now POSITIVE for Covid-19 antibodies. So, happy that the vaccine is, for me, showing results.
