You civilian or contractor?

Civilian. We got stuck in a weird limbo because the Navy already had doses for us...just had to wait our turn. It's all good though.

This free Krispy Kreme donut for getting vaccinated tastes even better knowing Twitter is up in arms about it.

Basically laid around all day yesterday and went to bed at like 9. Usually go to bed between 12-1 am. Woke up and still feel like I got hit by a truck. 
 

don’t feel sick. Just incredibly exhausted and sore over my whole body.

I’m getting mine end of April. By that time it will be 89 with a matching humidity. Being hot sweaty and sick sounds not delightful. 
 

 

 


Think “red wine hangover” plus you fell off of a ladder at some point.

So after getting the 2nd Pfizer shot on Tuesday I spent the day totally cool no issues.  Then, late that night my arm started hurting significantly and I had trouble closing my fist and had a really ****ty pain in the veins of my forearm. Went to bed and woke up to body aches and chills, the typical kind I had expected.  Took a shower and notice swelling in my armpit. Looks like it mega activated my lymph nodes which startled me, I hadn't heard of that.  Googled it and sure enough, 12-15% have this symptom. The swelling can last 7-10 days. Overall I now feel fine, the swelling is less but still around.  Not sweating it too much now and will be happy to get past this whole dang scenario. What a time to be alive, lol. smh. thankful.

I had a brief tinge of soreness in my arm after the second dose.

Two weeks since the second shot week ago last Friday.  I've sat down for a meal at a restaurant every single day, except today, since then.  Still masking and hand washing and being careful for others.  But it's wonderful.

Vaccine passports are latest flash point in COVID politics

 

Vaccine passports being developed to verify COVID-19 immunization status and allow inoculated people to more freely travel, shop and dine have become the latest flash point in America’s perpetual political wars, with Republicans portraying them as a heavy-handed intrusion into personal freedom and private health choices.

 

They currently exist in only one state — a limited government partnership in New York with a private company — but that hasn’t stopped GOP lawmakers in a handful of states from rushing out legislative proposals to ban their use.

 

The argument over whether passports are a sensible response to the pandemic or governmental overreach echoes the bitter disputes over the past year about masks, shutdown orders and even the vaccines themselves.

 

Vaccine passports are typically an app with a code that verifies whether someone has been vaccinated or recently tested negative for COVID-19. They are in use in Israel and under development in parts of Europe, seen as a way to safely help rebuild the pandemic- devastated travel industry.

 

They are intended to allow businesses to more safely open up as the vaccine drive gains momentum, and they mirror measures already in place for schools and overseas travel that require proof of immunization against various diseases.

 

But lawmakers around the country are already taking a stand against the idea. GOP senators in Pennsylvania are drawing up legislation that would prohibit vaccine passports, also known as health certificates or travel passes, from being used to bar people from routine activities.

 

“We have constitutional rights and health privacy laws for a reason,” said Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff, a Republican. “They should not cease to exist in a time of crisis. These passports may start with COVID-19, but where will they end?”

Guess I got lucky with Pfizer #2. My arm hurt like hell for less than 24 hours and that was it. Felt a lot like a Tdap shot. 

About 36 hours after Pfizer #2, I started to feel feverish and chilled. But it never got worse than that. By next day I felt normal.

So they mixed a some Astra ingredients with J&J ingredients, so what? Big whoop. Cook that **** up and send it to the Philippines. What's the worst that can happen?

In a weird way, I'm jealous. I worry that since I didn't have worse symptoms that my immune system isn't as ramped up to fight COVID as yours.

Funny you bring that up. My cousin has had health issues (unrelated to the virus) these last couple years and has been getting help from Cleveland Clinic. The virus had him super concerned. They told him that yes the lymph node reaction is an indicator of a more robust protection from the virus. Who the heck knows though, they are trying to figure this thing out on the fly. So, as long as I am “protected” and don’t grow a third arm I’m happy.

My fat banker buddy took the familia to Honduras to go diving and such.  All vaxxed up but wifey, who works in the medical field, tested positive when she went to go back to work.  Rest of the family is ok, and tested neg, but it goes to show.  Fourteen day quarantine for her.

 

She's prolly loving it upon further consideration because my buddy and the kids are in a hotel.

The third arm isn't so bad...its that second head you gotta watch out for.

Ah, the original* BBC version.

*technically the original version was a radio play, but this was the original live-action version.

So your cousin did or did not have a strong reaction?

Did they wait the full time after the second dose? it's anywhere from 2 to 7 weeks to get the full immunity after the second dose, I think.

 

There's still a chance one gets it, after all it is "only" 95% effective—it's just great at keeping you out of the hospital if you do get it.
