Yes












...*IF* there are indication that the vaccine rollout will lead to a return to normal.

Otherwise, why bother? I'm a healthy young man, so the only real value the vaccine provides is in enabling me to start socializing again.

If Biden insists that I still need to social distance even after the vaccine is rolled out, there is literally no reason to take it.

Which vaccine? By the time it's available to me, we'll probably have enough data that I'll feel comfortable with at least one of them.

Yes, although if waiting a bit would allow for the Pfizer I'd prefer that one from what I've seen thus far in results.

Might be good to wait a minute and see if there's a "Children of Men" or Dennis Kelly "Utopia" situation going on with the vaccine — may want to freeze some eggs first ;)

Will you take the Russian or the Chinese vaccine if they offer it to you?

"Which vaccine? By the time it's available to me, we'll probably have enough data that I'll feel comfortable with at least one of them."

This. It will likely be at least May before Moderna is available. Others may have cleared the FDA by then.

Its amazing that, after all this, the government and medical industry didnt have a plan to ramp up up vaccine production to more reasonable levels.

Fail.

Well they lost all the time between Biden winning and Biden being inaugurated because Trump kept trying to sell the election as stolen.

What do you expect?

I see it like this, either I take the vaccine or I will get covid-19. So I rather take the vaccine.

Pfizer got to supply Israel with the vaccine first. Netanyahu was quick to call Pfizer and buy all your vaccine.

parents just got their second dose of the Moderna vaccine. now have to wait until they finally open it up for us. relieved to have this out of the way for them, some relatives got it when it first came in March in NJ and two died from it.

Yes, in fact just registered. I don't have any of the conditions that qualify me to get vaccinated, but several of my coworkers who also had no pre-existing conditions and were not in phase 1 registered in December and got vaccinated anyway.

The phase thing is bs of they aren't even sticking to their own guidelines.

Made it a year without catching the Covids but it finally got me. Tested positive earlier this week.

Does this make me the first confirmed UP case?
Sam Adams
Member
Fri Feb 26 10:40:09
I think so. A few if us probably had mild/asymptomatic cases without knowing. You have any symptoms?
Habebe
Member
Fri Feb 26 10:40:37
I dint think your the first, but I cant recall any others specifically having it. You got to be more careful considering youve already tested positive for aids.


All jokes aside, hope you have a quick recovery.Stay home and bingewatch some stuff, get some moderate fresh air and excersize alone if possible.

> You have any symptoms?

Sinus congestion and head cold starting about 2.5 weeks ago.

Last week: muscle aches, tingling skin, fatigue, and head cold. No fever or lung-involved symptoms. The muscle aches were pretty intense, couldn't sleep for a couple of days and thought I'd really fucked my body up mechanically somehow. Sudafed XR + Benadryl to sleep was fine for managing symptoms.

Head cold cleared up over the weekend. New symptoms now. Slight urge to cough when I exhale, probably still somewhat fatigued. Most noticeable sensation for me this week is that my nostrils consistently burn like I got a bunch of chlorinated water up my nose.

Duration is notable, assuming this has all been Covid. Sickest I can remember being since high school. Still not very sick though... I just never get sick normally. Ran with my dog several times before the test popped, no trouble breathing. Decided to get a test because it was quick and easy and we wanted to rule Covid out. My wife had a head cold before me and tested negative for Covid, I WFH and so we figured I couldn't possibly have it if she didn't.

Maybe I had a normal cold two weeks ago and caught Covid after that? Definitely seem to be falling into the "normal adults have very mild symptoms" though so far. Still deciding whether I should use this opportunity to kill off my chuck multi and sell my computer at an estate sale.

Your doing it all wrong.

Take that Sudafed and extract the Pseudoephedrine, than add red phosphorus, Iodine tincture and water, run it threw a reflux condenser and bubble it out....yadda yadda yadda

Dose at 1/10th of a gram under the tongue. You will feel better, breathe better and the v I rus will likely leave you faster. In UK studies its been shown to Absolutley decimate influenza.

Sounds like J+J vaccine - single shot and ok results... better than the crappy UK vaccine but not as good as pfizer or moderna... is approved.

This should be given to poor people, steelers fansand other scum.

Thank god all is well and now chucks doesn't even need to answer this polls.

I have to be honest, I have been affected by all the negative news. Why else do I have even the slightest feeling of doubt about the vaccine (I have taken tons of them) or anxiety about catching Covid? The chances for mishap are so very small after all.

But yes, I will take the vaccine, despite those feelings of doubt, because reason and logic must temper anxiety.

Good to hear. My thoughts go out at times, though no prayers.

They vaccinate covid recoverees, though are looking into limiting it to one dose. Counting covid infection as the first dose so to speak.

Police in Rio de Janeiro launched an investigation on Wednesday into reports that doses of the coronavirus vaccine may have been diverted after images emerged of healthcare workers sticking needles into elderly people without injecting them.

Police appealed to local government and health officials to help understand what happened to the doses, which were intended for high risk groups.

At least three cases have been reported in Rio state of what local media are calling “shots of air,” in which health workers administered fake inoculations from empty syringes.

Videos shared on social media show healthcare workers inserting the needle into people’s arms with the syringe already fully compressed.

The personnel involved have been dismissed and the elderly people who received the fake shots were later vaccinated, Rio’s state nursing council, known as Coren-RJ, said in a note.

If police find that vaccines were diverted, those involved could be prosecuted for embezzlement, which carries a potential sentence of up to 12 years in jail.

Pretty sure my wife's whole mom-group and work-group of families had the rona back in Feb 2020, which would of course include me. Based on subsequent positive tests and so on.

Someone in that inner circle of families had a preschool classmate test positive. 10 out of the 12 families subsequently tested positive too (toddlers slobbering all over each other etc). The kid in our circle, my daughter's friend, and their family, tested negative, one of the 2. My daughter's friend was classroom best friends with the initial positive test result (read: lots of co-slobbering). But my daughter's friend tested negative (one of 2, our of 12). Almost like there were already antibodies.

But sure, whatever, stick me with whatever. I've been an "essential worker" the whole time (financial services) and haven't missed a single day (zero days, [0], nada, zilch) of in-person in-office work, I'm jokingly not sure why I can't get a shot yet.

Prior to March 2020, being sick was just a normal once-a-month thing. I had that unusually bad flu too, back around Christmas 2019. Toddlers in school or day-care -> you are going to get whatever is going around.

My theory is that the whole "few/no documented cases of school/classroom transmission!" narrative is correct, but not for any of the reasons supplied. There are no/few **documented** cases b/c anyone with small kids around already got that shit in Jan/Feb 2020, when no one was testing, so the kids all have antibodies already, for over a year.

March 2020, to our first play-dates several months later, was the only period of time in my daughter's entire life between a) initially entering pre-pre-pre school, and b) the initial lockdown, when she did not have the sniffles for an entire month (several months in a row, in fact).

But now it's just sniffles as a routine normal thing once again, for her and the boy, as well as me and the wife, with the occasional "omg this particular sniffle is correlated with someone testing positive for something that is in the news" drama show.
