    Default Covid vaccine

    14 days ago my wifes co-worker got the first of 2 vaccine shots. They say the first shot is 85% effective. He must be in the remaining 15% because he tested positive today.

    That sucks for him, good luck, hopefully milder case.
    I love the percentages, first dose 85% effective? Where did they get that number? 85% of the few people in there short study?

    I recall reading something that those who get the virus after receiving the first shot can reasonably expect to have better immune response because of the first dose. So, hopefully he will get well sooner and have less problems.

    this vaccine is a total unknown using new technology which makes it more suspect IMO. Medical folks I have spoken with won't say so publicly but are NOT going to get it or their families unless forced to by hospitals. personally will wait at least a season and let those who take it now be the real test study.

    best to all who do take it and may the odds be ever in your favor.

    The word "unprecedented" has been tossed around...

    My primary care physician and my dentist both got it about a month ago. My wife works at a pharmacy and all the employees there took it and they've been giving them regularly for over a week now. I'm a teacher and I took it. Unsure about future things for sure, but figured if wifey got it, I may as well too. Wouldn't want to go on without her anyway...........maybe we'll both grow wings and we'll fly away together. She says she's gonna grow wings and I'm gonna grow horns & a pointy tail. I said "bat wings?" and she wasn't nearly as amused as I was.

    Take care everybody.

    We get our second shot this Saturday. Our doctors and VA strongly urged us to get the shots. We are in the over 75 group.

    At my age, I don't fear dying as it is inevitable. What I fear is Nursing Homes.

    VA called today to let me know that they are working on getting vaccines. I also applied with my primary care doctor. I'm no expert with smart phones but vaccine technology doesn't scare me. We learned how to send men to the moon with new technology, intelligent people know how to innovate, new vaccine technology needed to happen for a new viral pandemic. I will be happy to join the vaccination club when my turn comes.
