COVID-19 can be quite devastating in senior citizens and the Delta variant is the most infectious yet. Bad vaccine reactions are very rare, but at least 1 out of 3 COVID-19 sufferers have cognitive or emotional problems within 6 months. Would strongly urge you get vaccinated, and the Pfizer product is highly protective.

Agree with Dr. Mechanic. I took the vaccine the day after it became available. The risk of Covid-19 infection is far greater than the minor aches and fever you may get from the vaccine. Take the vaccine.
