Another good news: 75% of those 65 and older have been vaccinated.

If herd immunity is indeed at 72%, you can alteady hold a geezers party.

You might want to read up on the “vaccine breakthrough” cases in WA before planning any parties, so that you are aware of the risks.


This supposed to be a joke but I dropped the lol. LOL!

But yeah, thanks for sharing this info.

The funniest part of my 2nd dose of Moderna was the phantom pain on my right shoulder -- as if I had also an injection on my right arm, lol.

The restless sleep with delirium was the worst.


Strange enough. I felt soreness in right shoulder after first shot. Got second shot in left shoulder, and both shoulders got sore. Next day, nothing. No sleep issues, slightly tired for a day or so. That's it.

Ok, that's reassuring. It's not just me after all not going mental with my phantom injection pain of the unvaccinated right shoulder, lol.

The Orlando media have sunk their teeth into the "breakthrough" cases. In their fit of hyperventilation they scarcely mention that ALL vaccines are not 100%. But a doctor interviewed by one station emphasized while the vaccines may not be 100% at preventing infection, of the breakthrough cases reported to the CDC they have been 100% effective in preventing serious illness and death.

In simple math and statistics, 95% efficacy means there will be 5% of those vaccinated who'll get that possibility of getting infected.

Yes. And according to this article the incidence of breakthrough cases in Washington is less than 0.01 percent. Unless I'm badly misinterpreting something, that seems like very good news.

Quick update on 2nd Moderna vax side effects. Yesterday I thought I was past the worst...and probably was. Just felt a little tired and had a sore spot on my arm. Went out for a bit and someone pulled my plug and I crashed. Slept for 5 hours in my chair...got up went to bed and slept another 9 hours. The red place on my arm was gone this morning...but it started to itch and is now pinking up again. I'm still feeling a bit tired...not sick. Just a little tired. Got the vax on Monday morning.

Yours must be the longest episode of side effects among those who shared.

Maybe here...but I have a friend who has been having a bit of rough time too. She's still having a few after effects too. I was fatigued, weak and sleeping a lot. She hasn't been able to sleep and has been chilled and sweats. We both got 2nd Modernas on Monday.

I hope you both recover and well soon.

Yeah, during may own and wife's ordeal I have to console myself that what I am going thru is a lot better than being hospitalized with Covid and being intubated, or feeling like drowning every time a breath is drawn even with supplemental oxygen, hallucinating...etc.
