I reckon I better get the vaxx, tho does it protect against the new strain?
I have read that some experts say it will because the mutants are very similar. It sounds like that is a professional opinion, though, not yet backed up by research.

Those reactions I described have all gone away, and I’m back to feeling 100%. I can only barely feel the pain in my shoulder anymore. I’ll be going back to work tomorrow. From what I’ve heard, the reactions I experienced over 24-48 hours after the second shot are typical.
i've heard the same ... for some reason it's only with the 2nd shot. :headscratcher1

Yeah, just pulling from my questionable memory, but I read that it has to do with the second shot sort of kicking in the body's immune response, and that sort of knocks you down a notch while it's doing that.

I feel totally fine now, although I was kinda out of it yesterday. I even went outside and worked in my yard today and felt fine.

Really, I feel back to 100%.

April a good time to get the jab, I think, get the flu shot then too.

Would like to see the mass vaxx is not causing more problems than it solves.

Glad you are feeling 100% Seth. I know you are fit and active, so you may have recovered quicker, how are others around you recovering from the 2nd jab?

From what I've heard, mostly the same. 24-48 hours of feeling a little punky, and then fine after that. My wife works for a health system, so many of her co-workers have had the first and second shot, and that's what they're telling her. She would have gotten her first shot already, but her dad died right about the same time they giving the shot, and she was preoccupied with helping her mother at that time. She'll get it at her next opportunity.

Sorry to hear about your dad in law 🌹
Never easy losing a loved family member, no matter what their age.
As for the vaccine, I’m not in any hurry to be injected with such haste of it in the making.
On the news tonight.... the Holiday Inn with quarantines... one was let out after 14 days and between day 15-16 tested positive!

if they are not getting the incubation /quarantine timing right...it doesn’t win my trust/confidence with anything else around this virus.

Still a lot to be learned about this virus.
Yes. Will this initial vaccination be effective on the variants? And how long does it provide immunity? I think the answers to those questions are just opinions at this point, even from the experts. We'll just have to wait and see.

Indeed .... It's been little over a year now....

so... just food for thought......

Here , where I live, we have an incipient virus lurking.

It is called Lyssavirus ..welll thats short form name... BUT it has killed people here in recent years.. it IS a Virus where it has been found to come from BATS, which infect HORSES, and kills them, as well as almost any human that tends to them.

Vets have died, and owner's or hands and it is called the HENDRA Virus , named for the suburb in Brisvegas where the first man died from it.
Measures have been put in place since then, which is mainly educating horse owners/contacts.. but a vaccine doesn't exist, as far as I am aware. If you get it, you need massive amounts of anti bact to handle the physical affects. I think more than 50% of infected people DIE, as do the horses.

Reported in the last month , in my locally produced FREE Newspaper, was information to the effect that at least TWO dead bats have been found, tested, and proved to be carrying the virus. Warnings are issued, just locally you understand.. not to handle dead bats, but to alert the relevant authority.
You have to be properly trained to deal with the dead bats safely.

THIS HENDRA virus is just too swift and deadly to be considered successful, from the point of view of the Virus.
:roll

However it is interesting isn't it.?

A horse trainer was the first to die from that virus IIRC
Yes indeed. He had stables at Hendra, and his horses transmitted the virus to him.

Sad tale indeed... he was a well-known 'hard-knocks' type of trainer, who had a Champion horse... called Vo Rogue.

I can almost recall his name...

He didn’t wash his hands even after horse saliva covered most of them, asking for trouble.
