    I received both of my Covid vaccine doses as soon as I could and felt like I got my life back.  Unfortunately so many people have refused to get the vaccine that Covid is still going strong and worries are back again.

    I haven’t heard anything about whether SMA people qualified as immune deficient and qualified for a booster shot now.

    Anybody have any info on getting a booster shot?

    I haven’t gotten my booster yet but plan on getting one when Moderna becomes available. That being said, if you’re eligible, I’d just try scheduling it as soon as you prefer. Several of my friends in the disability community (that are not immunocompromised) have successfully gotten a booster without being asked any questions. Worth a try.

    I keep seeing things that say people can still get and transmit the virus, even if they have gotten the shots. Have you heard anything about this?
