I go on Tuesday..

 

That was a complete bag full of nothing lol...surprised at how efficient the whole process was. Was seated immediately, about 5 minutes or so went by before they checked me in (took 30 seconds to do that), got the shot about 1 minute or two later--barely felt the syringe, no side effects whatsoever so far. Had to sit for 15 minutes before leaving in case there were any adverse reactions, then left and grabbed some BBQ on the way home lol.

 

I do now have x-ray vision, however, but not sure if that's due to the vaccine or not.

I'm 200lbs and 6' 3" to 6'4" dependent on the day. Who am I kidding, as I get older I'm closer to 6' 3" putting my BMI solidly at 25.0

 


If I round down to the nearest inch and weigh myself in jeans I hit 25.0 lol

Stop Blaming Tuskegee, Critics Say. It's Not An 'Excuse' For Current Medical Racism

 

For months, journalists, politicians and health officials - from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Dr. Anthony Fauci - have invoked the infamous Tuskegee syphilis study to explain why Black Americans are more hesitant than white Americans to get the coronavirus vaccine.

 

"It's 'Oh, Tuskegee, Tuskegee, Tuskegee,' and it's mentioned every single time," says Karen Lincoln, a professor of social work at USC and founder of Advocates for African American Elders. "We make these assumptions that it's Tuskegee. We don't ask people."

 

When she asks Black seniors in Los Angeles about the vaccine, Tuskegee rarely comes up. People in the community talk about contemporary racism and barriers to health care, she says, while it seems to be mainly academics and officials who are preoccupied with the history of Tuskegee.

 

"It's a scapegoat," Lincoln says. "It's an excuse. If you continue to use it as a way of explaining why many African Americans are hesitant, it almost absolves you of having to learn more, do more, involve other people – admit that racism is actually a thing today."

 

It's the health inequities of today that Maxine Toler, 72, hears about when she asks her friends and neighbors in LA what they think about the vaccine. Toler is president of her city's senior advocacy council and her neighborhood block club. She says she and most of the other Black seniors she talks with want the vaccine, but are having trouble getting it. And that alone is sowing mistrust, she says.

Here’s What You Can Do After You’re Fully Vaccinated Against COVID-19

 

Fully vaccinated? Congratulations! You’ve taken an important step toward protecting yourself—and others—from COVID-19.

 

Reminder: You’re considered “fully vaccinated” once it’s been two weeks since your second dose in a two-dose series (like the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines), or two weeks since you received a single-dose vaccine (such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Once you reach that point, your body has had enough time to build up enough infection-fighting antibodies to ensure a robust immune response should you come in contact with the novel coronavirus.

 

But before you think about throwing a party, keep in mind that COVID-19 is still spreading, and the majority of Americans haven’t been vaccinated yet. That means it’s important to continue taking precautions—especially in public.

 

You don’t have to wear a mask around other fully vaccinated people.


This holds true whether you’re indoors or outdoors, per the CDC. It can be hard to get your head around this after a year of wearing a mask, but experts say it’s just fine to do. “If you’re all fully vaccinated, we think that you’re so well protected that you don’t need masks,” says William Schaffner, M.D., an infectious disease specialist and professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.

 

“When you’re fully vaccinated, there’s very little risk that you can be a spreader of this virus,” says infectious disease expert Amesh A. Adalja, M.D., senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. That said, because the risk of passing on the virus after your immunization isn’t confirmed to be zero, you should only be unmasked around low-risk people until public health experts have enough data to say otherwise, he notes.

 

That’s why the CDC recommends that you continue to wear a mask in public settings (as you can’t know for sure whether each person is high or low risk), when you’re gathering with unvaccinated people from more than one household, and when you’re visiting with an unvaccinated, high-risk person. You should also still avoid large gatherings.

 

In most cases, if you have been fully vaccinated, the CDC says that you don’t need to stay away from others or get tested if you’ve been around someone with COVID-19. There are caveats, though. If you live in a congregate setting, like a group home, the CDC recommends staying away from others for 14 days if you have been exposed to the coronavirus.

 

“At their best, these vaccines are 95% effective—that’s not 100%,” Dr. Schaffner says. “It is possible, although unlikely, that you could be exposed to COVID and develop the illness.” If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, you should still quarantine and get tested for the virus, even if you are vaccinated.

Free Krispy Kreme doughnuts, cash and even marijuana — businesses pile on the perks for getting vaccinated

 

Getting America vaccinated will go a long way toward helping the country return to some sort of normal.

 

Already, employers such as Instacart, Target, Trader Joe’s, Chobani, Petco, Darden Restaurants, McDonald’s and Dollar General are among a growing list of companies giving workers time off and extra money to get vaccinated for Covid-19.

 

Kroger is awarding employees $100 in store credit in addition to a one-time $100 payment for taking the vaccine. Publix said it will give associates a $125 gift card to use in the store after they get both doses. 

 

For its part, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is offering anyone — employed or not — with proof of a Covid vaccination a free doughnut (Link).

 

And, The Greenhouse of Walled Lake, a marijuana dispensary in Walled Lake, Michigan, is giving anyone over the age of 21 with proof of vaccination a free pre-rolled joint. The “Pot for Shots” promotion is a “way of saying thank you for helping to end this pandemic and getting us back to normal,” the dispensary said.

It's 1 per day. You just have to make 12 separate visits.

Make a daily habit of it and you’ll be first in line for the next pandemic vaccine with your BMI > 40.

So KK is telling people to go out every day? The more you go out the less you are going to be around people who might have the virus or even the variant. 

 

See this is why I want the whole damn box. One trip and am good for at least 12 days...lol

It's Krispy Kreme

 

if I was in the eligible age group for a vaccine I would get it ASAP just for Krispy Kreme

The closest KK is about 20 min drive from my home. It is no longer free by the time I would get there. I would have spent more money on gas to get there. They should just give me a damn box and I can come back in 12 days for another. :D

You probably got the one I was trying to book for myself you rat ****!  

 

I got lucky and got an appointment this morning to get the shot at Safeway. I'm going to cancel my CVS appointment at exactly 3:17 today so you can grab it if you still want to go to that location :)

Nah I'm good, mine is scheduled for Saturday. But I won't lie, yesterday we both got texts from the state to book for a mass site. I was tempted to see if I can find one sooner than Saturday.  But I decided to just keep the CVS one.  

 

I'm just thrilled that it's getting easier to make appointments after reading all the horror stories as recently as last week.  Very encouraged by this.
