Until there is a definitive answer on the vaccine proventing long covid issues covid isn't the flu.

Exactly what science does to people tbh. Scientists can't even decide whether tomatoes are good or bad. Just look at benzodiazepines, or proton pump inhibitors, the milions of doses, years of prescriptions, dozens of studies and how long it still took for the knowledge of true harm and danger to get to the public. Most people treat science like religion now, holding similar sense of superiority out of knowing the ultimate truth, and just as misguided.

I'm not even about vaccines here, just answering the general sentiment. I actually talked my father into vaccination, because I thought that covid is a direct threat to him. I'd also strongly consider if it was still as annoying as the initial variants. I do think though, that with such complicated subject as human body, a new ish technique, the real time change of the illness, the politics and billions of dollars at stake, all those studies are just shots in the dark.

Garth Merenghi quotes
Most of you will probably know me already from my extensive canon of chillers including "Afterbirth" in which a mutated placenta attacks Bristol.

Everyone has a special talent. Mine is being able to write, produce direct, act, paint... Other people are good plumbers, that's their gift.

There are rebels and there are innovators. I'm a rebel. I play a rebel brain expert who's in rebelliance against conventional logic, who's in rebelliance against the world order. It's about rebelliance. And if that's not being an innovator, I don't know what is.

In times of conflict, when you're up against an agressor, be he human, be he inhuman, whoe'er he be, often he is both.

Greetings traveller. Who am I? Perhaps you have met me twixt sleep and and wake - in the penumbra of uncertainity you call unconsiousness... you know, my books are essentialy about "what ifs". In "Black Fang" I asked - what if a rat could drive a bus? And what if it and its rat brethren took over and ate Parliment?

A lot of people say "Garth Merenghi? Doesn't he write that horror crap?" Well, you're an idiot, because my books always say something, even if it's simple like "Don't geneticaly engineer crabs to be as big as man". There's always a message or a theme.

FDA approved it earlier this week, and this was the final sign-off:

CDC Recommends COVID-19 Vaccines for Young Children

Quote:
Today, CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, M.D., M.P.H., endorsed the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation that all children 6 months through 5 years of age should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. This expands eligibility for vaccination to nearly 20 million additional children and means that all Americans ages 6 months and older are now eligible for vaccination.

Parents and caregivers can now get their children 6 months through 5 years of age vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines to better protect them from COVID-19. All children, including children who have already had COVID-19, should get vaccinated.

COVID-19 vaccines have undergone—and will continue to undergo—the most intensive safety monitoring in U.S. history. Parents and caregivers can play an active role in monitoring the safety of these vaccines by signing their children up for v-safe – personalized and confidential health check-ins via text messages and web surveys where they can easily share with CDC how a child feels after getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

Distribution of pediatric vaccinations for these younger children has started across the country, and will be available at thousands of pediatric practices, pharmacies, Federally Qualified Health Centers, local health departments, clinics, and other locations this week. Children in this younger age group can be vaccinated with whichever vaccine is available (either Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech). Parents can reach out to their doctor, nurse, local pharmacy, or health department, or visit vaccines.gov to see where vaccines for children are available.

People are already complaining. As though children going to school aren’t required to get a dozen shots already.

Make Polio Great Again! I guess.

I have an international trip coming up in 3 weeks and I was thinking about getting a Moderna second booster (all my shots have been Pfizer so far).
Anyone here with 4 shots?

You're young and in good health. The current vaccine doesn't give you any real protection from getting it now. You've had enough after three shots that I would think you're good to go. Maybe in the fall we'll get some targeted towards the omi family, but it's changed so much they will prob end up useless too other than just giving you a boost to help fight off severe illness.

If you get exposed to latest Omicron variants you pretty much get sick no matter what now. But vaccines do pretty well fighting the infection once you get it. I had read a mix of Pfizer and Moderna gives you different antibodies for fighting infection. So, unless you had very adverse reaction to first shots, I'd go for it before a big trip. You need to get it now because it takes 14 days to take effect. My doctor confirmed the same advice also. He also recommended holding off on the 4th until closer to fall when it really hits again. He did make the exception if you plan on traveling though.

PS. Wearing a good mask is now probably the only way to prevent infection.

Wife and I both ended up coming down with it. I ran a fever (100 deg) the first night which cleared up the next day. Felt like garbage for another couple days and then started to feel better after that each day. Only really persistent issue is a runny nose and chest cold that is clearing up just slower than I'd like.

I'd had the 2 moderna shots and was due for the booster basically right when I ended up getting it. Wife had her booster already. Symptoms were more or less the same between with the exception of the fever which she avoided.

So remember back when Florida was praised for managing the pandemic well, keeping deaths low, while not having to go to lockdowns? Especially in contrast to a state like New York, who had massive death rates early on?

Running some quick calculations on the latest numbers.

Florida
75,574 covid deaths /
21,220,000 total population =
0.356% covid death rate


New York
68,886 covid deaths /
19,510,000 total population =
0.353% covid death rate


Yup. Florida has slowly caught up and overtaken New York's covid death rate. Geez check out those graphs.

Seems to affirm my early position/statement... because of how contagious Covid was it seemed like lockdowns weren't preventing infection, they were just delaying it. It was inevitable that everyone was going to get it eventually.


Florida probably had an early leg up with its senior population being fairly isolated and afraid of disease, and then jumped on the vaccination bandwagon ASAP. Old people remember.

Unfortunately, a significant share of the younger population didn't do the same so eventually get it and lacking the vaccine protection many die just like early days in NYC.

Weren't there a lot of missing deaths in Florida at one point?


Here in Australia the whole of society is basically over it. We still isolate if positive, and mask in sensitive areas (hospitals + aged care) but aside from that it's pretty much who cares. We've been at 45-50 deaths per day for the last month though. Which is about the same as 650 deaths per day in the USA.

Still hoping that we get some better vaccines later this year that reduce cases/deaths even more. But I also think more people won't take it and so it won't make a huge difference.

Here in Oilberta we've been fully opened since i think May.

Its been pretty normal now. some people mask, others dont, no one really cares about COVID anymore.

The COVID numbers still occur but they arent high anymore and its basically at "deal with it" now. If you get it you isolate, and if you come into close contact you just test yourself and see if you get it or not, otherwise you just get on with your life.

Nothing has collapsed and its nice to have one that no one has to worry about anymore. Nowadays everyone is worried about how expensive everything here has gotten, and how our health care system is in such a shitshow situation.....(basically...dont get sick lol)

Oh yeah healthcare being swamped is a thing here too. I guess it's to be expected. You shut down a lot of surgeries for months on end, eventually the patients still need to have those procedures. Might be a while before some places catch up. And even now, I'm sure people testing positive is messing up schedules.

Hope she feels better soon.

My wife and I masked up all around the house after I caught it, and she still caught it. So if you do, hope it passes quickly for you too.

Fwiw, the wife had mild cold like symptoms. It wrecked me for 2 full days, and we’re both fully vaxxed. It scared the heck out of me because I lost my breath so badly.

Yup.

I'm currently in lockdown with my family at my sister's house with her family. There's 10 of us here, all healthy, including 6 kids... and we've all tested positive over the last couple weeks, all symptomatic, despite all of us being fully vaxxed and boosted. This strain is particularly transmissible. Seems to wipe people out for 2 days with fever, sore throat, head cold, and then includes restricted breathing for another couple days. Nobody's dying, none of us needing hospitalization, but yeah it seems to infect everyone without exception, at least in our 10-person sample.

Sounds like the same as our household here. Sara came down with Covid symptoms Tuesday night. Wednesday we got PCR testing. Came back positive yesterday.

Been masked up inside and isolating but we'll see how it goes.

Man... we're both double vaxxed and boosted and holy **** did this hit Sara ****ing hard. I've never seen an illness push her to tears like this.

Wife is doing much better; no more fever, little to no coughing and she has more energy.
We believe it’s Paxlovid doing its thing mashAllah.
As for me, I’m still testing negative and continue to sleep in the uncomfortable bed in the guest bedroom downstairs

So, how did y'all manage the end of the household isolation phase? Did she isolate within the house until today's negative antigen rapid test? Because we're going through the exact same thing here.

Wife and I both got negative tests today. The CDC guidance we read suggested that we should wait 24 hours and test again... 2 negative tests over 24 hours means we're cleared to go out again.

But what about going maskless within the home?

We have not been wearing masks in the home. I think we'll probably wear masks when we leave the house for the next 5 days or so.
