Lightning55 - both my Dad and my daughter had strong "hives" reactions to flu shots, so I had always avoided getting flu vaccinations figuring I shared their DNA. My Dad had the same reaction: itchy hives that eventually made his skin peel off in "sheets".

But last fall, with the Covid situation, I DID get a flu vaccination (with zero side effects) figuring hives still beats potentially going to the hospital with the flu - and it surely applies to getting a covid vaccination!! We just don't know what the long-term effects of getting Covid are; and I don't plan to find out.

So any update from south of the border. Hope your fever didn't last long.


And I hope he is not planning on a trip to Great Britain. Sinovac vaccination is insufficient for them to allow entry into the country.

Got the first Moderna shot Tuesday and my shoulder felt a little sore the first night but it is gone now. Next shot is May 25.

Hahaha
No plans to hear Big Ben's clock toll or drink room temperature beer with my Shepherd's Pie.

One fact not fiction however from the CDC, WHO, Australia, Brasil, India, and Johns Hopkins...
No one that has completed the 2 jab Sinovac series (read 0) has yet had to be hospitalized with COVID19 or mutant symtoms. The issue is with BREAKOUT symptoms meaning testing POSITIVE for the virus 2 weeks or longer after receiving the 2nd jab. The SINOVAC only gives 3% protection for Breakout after one jab.

I know of five houses five families where seniors received their first jab then 2nd while their adult children went through 2 weeks of verified hell of verified Covid19 without the seniors getting a sniffle. Three of those household's minor children have tested positive for COVID19 in the last 10-days while the seniors remain symptom free. The kids range from 5 to 16 years of age and have mild fevers, coughing and body aches. All test positive.

So BREAKOUT symptoms seem to be playing a major role in Great Britain admissions. If you TEST positive it's back on the airplane. Our health organizations are seemingly doing a monumentally poor job of explaining clinical practices clearly to the public. With the very clear and extended side effect of fever and fatigue I went through the SINOVAC clearly affected my immune system. Compared to other adults down here I had a rougher time. But I tested NEGATIVE the day before I got my first jab. My issue now is dealing with very long lines of now eligible 50 - 59 year olds while in process for my 2nd jab 7 - 15 May.

I hate to wreck preconceived notions but reality is reality.

A note of humor into a serious subject ...

People have a habit lately of asking "Have you had your shots yet?' ... I feel like I should bark! [emoticon]

I think you should let them finish the question.

Like what Kimmel pulled not the MyPillow guy: Did you get your shot yet?

MyPillow guy: No.

Kimmel: I mean for rabies.

Listening to a sixty year old song titled POISON IVY
Makes me laugh. I think it's available on You Tube

It's not "exactly" about COVID but it'll do.

I'm already waiting for my vaccine. My family doesn't want to be vaccinated but I'm really worried about my health. Last year I was so scared that I rarely went to the store or just for a work. I was very afraid of getting sick and was looking for ways to improve my immunity. On Canada Drugs I read that you need to exercise regularly, take vitamins, sleep healthily and eat more foods and vegetables. Then I felt more confident but still I think it's better to get vaccinated

Take it from my brother's in-laws who are politically Covid deniers and held a super spreader family reunion.

Two of his wife's uncles died of Covid (the worst possible way to die) and my brother himself caught it and hospitalized which he described as the worst thing that happened to him.
