She's 19 and eligible to get it (healthcare worker). She had COVID and positive antibodies.

I'm not sure I trust the vaccine and don't see a huge benefit in her getting it.

Benefit- she’ll be protected from the virus?
Maybe she can test for antibodies first?

She's 19, she makes the decision.

If I were 19 and had positive antibodies, I don't think I'd get the vaccine. I believe that it's most likely pretty safe, but every vaccine has a very small % negative reaction.

When did she test positive?
It dissipates with time.
I’m a healthcare worker and signed up and have an appointment.

If I had current active antibodies, I would not
She can always get it later on once they wear off and it becomes available to the wider population

In October.

Even though antibodies can disappear, I've heard that cells will still "remember" the virus and there can still be immunity. antibodies can be retriggered when exposed to the virus.

If its been more than 90 days since her infection, then she should be fine getting it if she wants it. Since you can be reinfected w/ covid, it’s better to get the vaccine in hopes of longer term immunity.

She is 19. The vaccine is still in emergency use trials without any long term data. She did well with the virus. She has anti bodies which may or may not wane, no long term data yet. What is the rush? Without the vaccine her percentages look pretty solid. If the vax data shows risks (like any possible issues with infertility, of most concern for a 19yo who has not yet had children) which risk is greater or less than for her?
Her constant exposure could be boosting her immunity to it too, unknown.
If someone is low risk then why the rush? Why not let higher risk take it first? There is a limit on how fast they can manufacture.

Why not wait for the clinical trial on fertility due in June ?

This study is for males. It’s looking at se-men.

No. Its still considered experimental and no FDA approval... I would not want to be a guinea pig for this vaccine (or any)

I wouldn’t. If she did well the first time, is young, healthy and has antibodies, why risk with something that long term affects haven’t been studied on?

She's 19, and if she can be trusted as a healthcare worker, she can make her own decision. She probably works with other doctors, etc. who can provide facts on this vaccine.

I think if I'd had it in October, it's been >3 months, and I'd get the vaccine. (FYI I plan to get the vaccine as soon as it's available to me personally)

No, and 19 isn't old enough to decide her future and her fertility. As her mother you should absolutely make the decision for her. She's low risk, the vax has no benefits for her, side effects are unknown. I'm incredulous that anyone is willing to be a Guinea pig.

I shd hope not. It’s a great question whether to vaccinate a young healthy 19 year old. I’m glad you got the vaccine for yourself and you suffered no side effects. You can’t say the same for everyone.
