    I believe the theory is that one reason covid hit so hard is that it's a novel coronavirus that our immune systems have not encountered before. So vaccination should provide some protection against the variants - even if they don't provide immunity, the risk of hospitalization and death should be significantly reduced.

    That aligns with the argument I've heard that covid 19 and it's variants are here to stay, but as our bodies get used to them they should become just another variant of seasonal cold/flu.

    Part of the reason we have the variants is because before vaccine the disease was free to spread and mutate as it went along.

    In the future reducing the spread with vaccinated people will help reduce variants.

    I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be rough.
    I caught the bug on March 31st. Kicked the shit out of me for a couple weeks.

    I got the J&J shot Thursday night. Felt horrible yesterday, little better today but still crappy.

    After having the disease in March, I finally got the vaccine on Saturday -- Pfizer #1. I guess my immune system works, was a rough day yesterday. Fever hit 102 and in the morning I was too weak to get out of bed. Still have a slight fever today but I seem to be recovering rapidly.

    One thing I forgot to do is drink tons of water on the day of the vaccine. I woke up at 4am Sunday gasping because I was so dehydrated. I will not repeat that mistake three weeks from now.

    Re: Nervous yet? covid-19

    First shot for me was nothing but a sore arm, fortunately not so bad that I couldn't swap my winter wheels off the car that day. Second gave me mild headache, body aches, and chills for a day or so, no fever.

    I don't know why people are scoffing at the sore arm. Of course you should expect some soreness at the site, but this was worse than other shots for me. It's still something out of the ordinary, so doesn't that count as a side effect?

She viewed quarantining+vaccine to be a better alternative than just quarantining. It's reasonable for others to reach a different conclusion.

    One factor in her decision was a study published by JAMA Pediatrics that concluded that pregnant women who got Covid-19 had a higher mortality rate and more complications compared to pregnant women without Covid-19. The study was a relatively small cohort (2130 women in 18 countries). The conclusions of this study may not be significant enough to be applied to pregnant women in general, but it does indicate increased risk if a pregnant woman gets Covid-19.

    Another factor was an analysis of national surveillance data that included pregnancy status of 409,462 women with symptomatic COVID-19 illness through October 3, 2020. The adjusted risk ratio in pregnant women (vs those of similar age and not pregnant) was 3.0 for intensive care unit admission, 2.9 for mechanical ventilation, and 1.7 for death. This was published by JAMA as a Viewpoint, and was data analysis, not a controlled study.
    This jives with what I've been hearing from pregnant friends, and what I read when I was pregnant. Pregnancy does fucky things with your blood/oxygen supply and increases risks of clots. So does COVID. The risks from the vaccine are far lower than the risks from getting COVID while pregnant, in my personal opinion.

    The real question is “what does the vaccine have to do with Bill & Melinda Gates divorce”?

    If you haven't had the disease, the first shot introduces your immune system to the virus but it's more or less gone by the time the immune system reacts. Therefore the first shot is much milder than the second, which is a sort of dry run for fighting the disease.

    If you've already had the disease, your immune system is already trained, so both shots are pretty unpleasant. It's theorized that if you've had the disease, you get adequate protection with only one shot. Unfortunately no one's formally tested this so they can't make that recommendation.

    Agree -- at the end of the vaccine day I could barely lift my arm over my head. I suppose it's because the site of the shot is where all the mRNA is, and hence where the fake virus is manufactured, and so it's natural there would be a lot of inflammation there.

    Got Pfizer #2 yesterday. No side effects yet except a sore arm - and so far it's no where near as sore as after #1. I did drink a ton of water beforehand.

    I think they should small pox blanket that shit right into the randy vaccine exclusion zone.

    India is getting an ass kicking by Covid and finally hitting close to home. An 80+ year old Uncle passed away...he had both AZ shots too. Hearing a bunch of anecdotal bad stuff.

    The AZ didn't do well against variants in the real world iirc. Unfortunate.

    Yes I was just reading that the AZ vaccine fails on the SA variant.

    Getting India vaccinated needs to be the planet's #1 priority, otherwise we're going to be playing variant whack-a-mole for the next few decades.

    Re: Nervous yet? covid-19

    Received my second poke of Moderna yesterday.

    We get to the hospital and they tell us that they were out of doses and that we needed to call them in a few days. What bullshit. We called around and ended up traveling about 30 minutes to another hospital that had them.

    Girlfriend had chills all night along with fever-like symptoms. I didn’t fare too well either. All day a mixture of chills, muscle fatigue, and headaches. Hope this passes.
