          I know right. I've already seen people all over social media pulling the, "see we told you it wasn't safe" BS already.

            Yea about any drug you take these days have much worse numbers then those, can’t believe they are halting it because of it.

              My understanding is, they temp halted it to make sure all physicians knew how to treat these types of clots, since it's different from standard methods. Once that's out then they should resume.

                The clots are for the chosen ones. They are randomly selected by the great watchers and are tested in order to see if they qualify for the second ascension.

                Because greatness abounds, and only a select few will be able to join the upper elite, and they will be exempt from the great purge that is to come.

                It is also why the majority of clots occur in women....them watchers are pervs.

                        I am now 12 hours past the moment the 2nd Pfizer dose invaded my supple innards. So far, a sore arm just like the first dose.

                        I had to delay the 2nd by a week so am wondering if that's helping with the side effects. Could be speaking too soon. I should stop.

                        For record:

                            I've had customers walk in without precaution because they were vaccinated. I don't believe them. I read in the news a woman caught covid three weeks after vaccinated with J&J. Being vaccinate isn't an excuse to disregard all covid precautions.

                              I consider this more like the flu vaccine than polio. This is mutating, and getting the flu shot yearly like I do doesn't mean you can't get the flu. It just gives you a better chance.

                              Rona gonna be around for a while. Calling it now.

                              Then I see posts on social media about how nobody got the flu this year. Apparently masks and social distancing help with that too. Who would have thought??? LOL

                              What we really need is a guy like me instead of Fauci. You need a southern accent dude telling you what to do. If the dumbasses around me would believe me. Everyone should!

                                There was just a guy too who's in the hospital with it after the vaccine. People need to stop being assholes and thinking just because they got the vaccine, they can run around without masks and resume life as normal. Just like the woman that I thought gave my whole IT team covid, she had it so she thinks she can't get it again. I'm so sick of stupid.

                                  It's mostly young and unvaccinated people. Glad deaths are down though

I thought it was awesome and was cheering my antibodies on!! Was gone when I woke up the next day. Don't worry, it's just annoying mostly the day after.

                                      Slept horribly last night... don't know if I was briefly feverish. Had some crazy bad dreams. Today I woke up feeling "dense", like I weigh 60 lbs heavier. Not fatigued per se (but then again I only got about 12 minutes of deep sleep according to Fitbit) but it seems to take more effort to move. Arm soreness is subsiding after peaking around 4AM.

                                      Not dead yet. Hope the trend continues.

                                          My only thing is.. at what point are we going to be able to stop wearing masks and resume some normalcy? I'm confused how we don't know what affects the vaccine have in terms of if you're capable of getting COVID after, or if you can spread it, etc. I mean they did do trials of the vaccine so this stuff should have been figured out even if the trial period was short.

                                          Truthfully all of this is starting to get old. Don't get me wrong, I follow all COVID protocol and I wear my mask and socially distance.. but yeah, it's getting old. I'm vaccinated, so when am I going to start feeling normal again? Everytime the goalposts are set, they seem to continue moving backwards when we reach them. As always, things must be fluid and adaptive to what the situation is, so I understand why, to an extent..

                                            State of the Covid as I understand it.


                                            If Pfizer/Moderna you're 90-95% immune. If J&J/Astra then less (60-80%?)

                                            Is that 5-10% a matter of viral load or personal immunity? They don't know. if you're one of those unlucky few then you can catch it. You may or may not spread it if you do.

                                            If you catch it you won't feel completely craptastic and won't be hospitalized.


                                            So, that 5-10% right now is what is holding things back as not everyone that wants to be immunized has been and there's a chance you could spread it. In my opinion, after everyone that intends to be vaccinated has been, things SHOULD open up. If you happen to get a little ill that's nothing new... happens all the time with seasonal colds, flu, etc. The danger of happening to spread it to someone else is a danger they've brought upon themselves by refusing vaccination. If you happen to spread it to someone vaccinated, it's not especially dangerous so it's acceptable, and the rates/severity will be low enough that it isn't going to overwhelm the medical system with vaccinated people.

                                            At the point that only unvaccinated people are being shown to the hospital, hopefully that will spur the morons into getting the damned shot and we can put this behind us for good.


                                            Faucci's statement how he'd want people wearing masks till summer 2022 so we can wipe this thing completely out is unrealistic, and I hope the policy makers realize that. Protecting the stupid from themselves at the expense of EVERYONE ELSE is not good policy.

                                            Fauci predicted the country would be "approaching a degree of normality" by the end of the year, but says face coverings may still be necessary.

                                            Fauci also said that face masks — for many Americans, one of the most visible signs of abnormality — may still be necessary in 2022.

                                            “I think it is possible that is the case,” he said when asked whether Americans will still be wearing masks next year. The level of new infections must go “way down,” he added, before he could say people needn’t wear face coverings.

                                            I want it to keep going down to a baseline that’s so low there is virtually no threat,” Fauci said. “If you combine getting most of the people in the country vaccinated with getting the level of virus in the community very, very low, then I believe you’re going to be able to say, you know, for the most part, we don’t necessarily have to wear masks.”

                                              When roughly 80% of the population is vaccinated.
                                              Then its pretty much down at flu levels of management.
                                              Except where the flu vaccine is mostly voluntary, this coronavirus vaccine will likely be one of those mandatory ones like Hep B/A, tetanus, pertussis, etc.

                                              The stupid thing about this whole vaccination thing is...did people REALLY expect to NOT get any symptoms from this? I mean sheesh every vaccine known to man has some type of side effect...usually mild.
                                              Blood clots are bad but jesus everything seems like its within the exception range of every vaccine....some people get bad reactions, most dont.

                                                Summer 2022? I really hope not. I'm hoping we see them just looking to get the infection/death/whatever numbers down to a number that's equivalent to other diseases like the Flu, instead of going to an unrealistic number that won't be reachable for another year..

                                                Thanks for the link as usual Koralis

                                                  people are stupid, that's your answer. If they keep acting like idiots we won't see normality for a LONG time. it's actually as easy as that.

                                                  And sad, it get's even sadder the longer you think about it.

                                                    First jab in the books. Little frustrated that I went through the scheduling process to get Pfizer, and was surprised to look at the immunization card and see the nurse input Moderna. Was a personal preference due to my observations that Pfizer was further along in testing in regard to transmissibility and perhaps better efficacy against variants, and the lack of communication is irritating, but in the end just glad to have step 1 done.

                                                      Just manage to book an appointment for the vaccine on the 21st

                                                      GF will get it 2 weeks later, father and mother in law both had their first dose today, my dad is tomorrow IIRC... Can't wait to at least eat together !



                                                      It's like unicorns vomiting chocolate rainbows all over me as I float through a lollipop garden on a magic carpet.

                                                        If Pfizer/Moderna you're 90-95% immune. If J&J/Astra then less (60-80%?)

                                                        Is that 5-10% a matter of viral load or personal immunity? They don't know. if you're one of those unlucky few then you can catch it. You may or may not spread it if you do.

                                                        If you catch it you won't feel completely craptastic and won't be hospitalized.


                                                        So, that 5-10% right now is what is holding things back as not everyone that wants to be immunized has been and there's a chance you could spread it. In my opinion, after everyone that intends to be vaccinated has been, things SHOULD open up. If you happen to get a little ill that's nothing new... happens all the time with seasonal colds, flu, etc. The danger of happening to spread it to someone else is a danger they've brought upon themselves by refusing vaccination. If you happen to spread it to someone vaccinated, it's not especially dangerous so it's acceptable, and the rates/severity will be low enough that it isn't going to overwhelm the medical system with vaccinated people.

                                                        At the point that only unvaccinated people are being shown to the hospital, hopefully that will spur the morons into getting the damned shot and we can put this behind us for good.


                                                        Faucci's statement how he'd want people wearing masks till summer 2022 so we can wipe this thing completely out is unrealistic, and I hope the policy makers realize that. Protecting the stupid from themselves at the expense of EVERYONE ELSE is not good policy.

                                                        Faucci's is a first class asshole .
                                                        and loves the camera time and does not want to ever go back to normal to keep him in the camera lights .

                                                        summer this year .

                                                        at this point protecting others that won't get a shot not matter what is not my job

                                                                So far minor side-effects. Pretty sore arm, and a little achy in general. Maybe a little headache, but may just need moar coffee lol.

                                                                We were able to get Lupboy3 (17) and his best friend vaccinated last night as well, down there in CA. Pfizer. Friend was pretty sick first thing this morning with headache, achy, and ultimately nausea and vomiting. Was fine by 10am or so and they're both low but doing okay.
