I had my second Pfizer shot yesterday. I've had a headache, minor fatigue, and low grade fever. Nothing too terrible. I'm not having near the reaction that Greg did. It's a small price to pay. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back to normal.
Good article today in the NY Times from a Johns Hopkins virologist.I can see how that might be true pertaining to such a distant period in time. My comments about not knowing the true information about the ability of the vaccines to prevent infection and transmission was in the context of the next couple of years.
Not just good, but very well written and understandable.Good article today in the NY Times from a Johns Hopkins virologist.
It's a good day for you. Your vaccination was scheduled and your very worthy photo of the capitol was nominated for being featured on the home page.First thing this morning I called my district supervisor's office, and within two hours had an appointment for Friday.
Is that only in the USA? Other parts of the world are struggling....Glad to hear of everyone getting their shots. We'll have this thing licked soon.
I read a column by a distinguished medical professor a couple of days ago saying he expects herd immunity by April. This is based on the ongoing vaccination campaign and the rate of infection, which, as bad as it is, does produce more immune people. And as we heard yesterday, the actual rate of asymptomatic or mild infection has been much higher than originally thought, which also adds to herd immunity.
We keep hearing very different information about that, depending on when we hear it. When the pandemic first took off, I regularly heard that the number of infected people might be 10 to 50 times higher than the documented number of infected people. It has been a long time since I've heard that information. Now we are again hearing about it at least by implication because of the possibility of herd immunity maybe happening sooner than we thought.And as we heard yesterday, the actual rate of asymptomatic or mild infection has been much higher than originally thought, which also adds to herd immunity.
It took Greg 3 days to get over his second dose of Moderna. Hang in there.24 hours after 2nd Moderna, some aches and an out-of-sync feeling for me and my wife is still in bed due to dizziness.
Approaching 50 years of marriage, I will not ask “what’s ‘fer dinner tonight?”
