We are all waiting for you to act like a decent human. Honestly man, can you just be a reasonable human? The woman had a thought. She didn't make a claim.
What in the fuck is wrong with you. What the fuck does Dr. Suess have to do with anything? You really come across as the biggest asshole on this board.
I kindly ask you to just stop being a dick.

Go Sox,

Because being a dick is the one thing he is good at. Aside from some hunting reports, every single other post by ribka is a sarcastic laced put down of others. Hmmm, isn't a lack of any socially redeeming value the same as pornography?

This is totally true. All you have to do is look at his posts.

I have wondered about the folks who have a bad reaction to the shot, especially the second shot.

Maybe this has been discussed. But Is there any study that shows that what might be going on with vaccines and who gets sick and who does not (aside from differing immune systems) is that maybe folks had asymptomatic Covid in the past year and never knew it and recovered. And these are the folks getting sick with the vaccine. And those who never contracted the virus did okay and did not get sick from the vaccine. Or is it the other way around?

The only reason my sister in law found out was that her son wouldn’t travel over the pass to the East side for the holidays unless she and his dad got a Covid test. They complied and got the test and were shocked to find out that it came back positive.

Neither one had felt ill, except fatigue, but who doesn’t have that in their late 60’s, early 70’s?
Jojo,
The wife and I received our first shots a week ago today. We both had C-19 in early November She is now considered a "long termer" as she was hospitalized for 10 days and basically lost all her stamina taste smell and ability to form sentences. I was asymptomatic and was never tested as both the Docs said "You got it ...stay home" which I did. I donate blood and after discussing the issue with the Red Cross they said donate as they needed everything they could get. My blood test came back Positive in early December and was told by the R/C they separate positive donations for the plasma as the anti-bodies are present and send it directly to hospitals for immediate use. The wife is not a needle friendly person but per her Doc's orders she took the shot willingly. She went right back down the rabbit hole at probably 20% of what she encountered when she was hospitalized in November. She's late 60's I'm past the hump by a good measure.
Her Doctor said think about it, you have a second dose of what you had in November but it is not a reaction, it's normal for what happens with significant illnesses. Doc said the people having "reactions are more than likely to have auto-immune/allergic issues. "The "long termers" have other potential issues but the Medical people will not know until more data is saved and reviewed. Anyway, I don't want to get long winded but that's what happened here. Take care, stay well.

With Biden's/Inslee's announcement on Monday that all educators pre-K through 12, staff and licensed childcare providers are now available for the Covid vaccine I have been on the hunt for my wife since. Been using Covid WA web site all day. I go on about every 1/2 hour to check. @4:15pm I see a local pharmacy has availability. I run upstairs and my wife makes her appointment. She is now scheduled for this Friday and also has her second shot scheduled. 30 minutes later that pharmacy has used up all of their allocations. Dayum that was quick!

Happy wife --> happy life.

Good luck all and stay safe...

Thanks all of you for responding and weighing in. I’ll check those links out @Canuck from Kansas . It also occurs to me that maybe it’s better not knowing if this is the case, even if it was, because folks who have had Covid still need the vaccine and if they know that having had it can increase risks of being sick for awhile then they might decide not to get it. My parents who are in their mid-80s are scheduled to get their second one this Saturday so i hope it goes okay for them.
I have heard that the older you are the less likely a bad reaction is. Anecdotally, when I took my 98 dad for his second dose, he had no reaction, didn't even complain of any arm pain. The first I heard of people being laid up by the second dose came from a friend who work in a doctors office, so many of her fairly young associates were running temps and feeling bad for a day or two.

In NJ, so it might be different, but appointments have really opened up since mid-week. I got my first dose yesterday, my wife will tomorrow. Keep checking pharmacy websites as they'll now be getting the J&J vaccines in the next week or so, and since it's one dose, they won't need to worry about having enough in reserve for dose 2. Good luck and stay safe, all!

As a teacher, I got my first dose this week. I did a walk-in clinic that had just received their vaccines, which I found on out on the Pierce county website. Walked-in, signed up, got a number and left, they called me in a couple hours and I came back. It was far easier than I could have ever expected. I did not have any luck trying to make a reservation online. Good luck to all.

Interesting article about COVID and Washington state:


Some tidbits from it:

King County has 2nd lowest COVID infection rate of all large counties in the US.
Snohomish County is 3rd.
Pierce County is 6th.
Washington state is 5th lowest in the nation.

King County is 7th in fewest number of deaths.

King County may not get the J&J vaccine.

Thank you for doing your part and Stay Safe...

Thank you @bakerite . My 86 year old parents got theirs today. So far, so good! Hope it stays that way. I’ll be seeing them tomorrow .

The Rite-Aid in PA was today placing calls to all their customers announcing available appointments for J&J vaccines this weekend. Clallam county has really done better than most in making this process as seamless as possible.

All good news. I'm sure it's been posted on this thread already, but it's worth remembering how incredible it is to have three incredibly safe, effective vaccines come online in less than a year. Completely unprecedented. Prior to the pandemic, the process could take 10-15 years to go from start to finish.

The delays, snafus, etc are an annoyance, but negotiating through an imperfect process falls into the "good problem to have" category relative to where we could be in the absence of a vaccine. Not only that - the US is vaccinating the population much faster than most of the developed world. Only Israel, England, and one other country have rolled out the vaccine faster.

There are lots of imperfections that it's fair enough to grumble about, but having this many vaccines this effective available this quickly is also something worth taking a moment to be thankful for!
