Did You Get Your Shot?
« on: January 28, 2021, 09:00:20 PM »
The state of NJ gave me the go ahead. I'm now qualified to get my shot. Of course no place is taking appointments because they say there's no vaccine but I got the green light so, I got that going for me. My prediction, By the time I get the shot, either I won't need it or it won't work on the mutation.

I am not eligible yet, but am in the next group that opens up. I'm happy for you. Can't wait for the pandemic to end, and vaccination is what will get us there.

  They can't get the 1st group inoculated so they open it up to a second group here in Washington. I expect no less. But it's a
 "World Wide Pony Show"  Same idiocy in Europe, the Far East... not enough serum to go around.... I'm happy to wait a few months for mine....

Colorado got something right.  Or at least the Colorado University Health care system did.

My wife and I got our second shots a week ago.

We're doing OK over here in the good old UK of GB and NI: an 86-year-old neighbour had her second Pfizer shot a couple of weeks ago, and I had my first Astra-Zeneca shot last Saturday (no side-effects so far).  This is all National Health Service, of course - free at point of use, paid for out of taxes.  Sometimes, the NHS might not be quite perfect, but it's handling vaccinations very well, in my area at least.

The idiot Governor here in Florida decided to ignore CDC guidelines and inoculate old voters 65 and up first. He underordered from the Feds and let Counties decide how to get the shot into arms.

Most Counties have the population registering by TEXT MESSAGE, a move that excluded a large percentage of poor and minorities.

His latest move is to allow a supermarket chain that just gave his campaign $100,000.00 to administer the vaccine, but primarily in Counties that voted for him.

The VA is following the CDC guidelines and has almost all first responders and hospital employees and plans to administer to Federal nursing homes next. Then Vets deemed "very needy" because of medical situations.

The idiot Governor has proclaimed that he doesn't need Federal help.

I have gotten both shots now and so far I havent grown a tail or developed gills.  I had the Pfizer Vaccine.  They told me 7-10 days from getting the second shot for immunity.
Ochsner Health System here in Louisiana has done a great job of administration and is very well organized.

I envy you.  We're an island too, but placed just right (or wrong!) for masses of international travellers to descend upon us from all over the place.  The airports we could maybe do something about, but the English Channel is navigable in a rubber dinghy (someone once crossed it in a bathtub) and a lot of unwelcome visitors sneak in that way.

NO! And I'm not going to get it. Here's the reason why; Dr. Simone Gold.

Go to www.KSCO.com and click on her lecture and you will be as amazed as I was.

This is a "experimental vaccine" and is NOT recommended. Now don't go shooting me, I'm just the messenger.

Enjoy, Jerry

I have a friend in York, PA who got his shot #1 from the VA in Lebanon, PA. His second one is scheduled for early February. Good for the VA! Our Virginia Democrat Gov. is following the Pelosi Schumer duo and continuing to SCREW up every possible avenue! All I hear out of Richmond is how great things will be once somebody does something!!!!!!!!!!!! So where's the shots for us 82.75 year olds?  I'll bet we finally get it by Thanksgiving!

This is a new approach to making vaccines, but it does not "alter" your DNA.

 It uses a bunch of messenger RNA strands, something your cells make to create proteins.
This new mRNA tricks your cells into producing a tiny part of the virus, and your immune system learns to attack those bits.
Once the mRNA is used up it is gone from your system.

I would just say, use caution.  The German health ministry just said they will not administer the Atra/Zeneca vaccines to anyone over 64 (I do not know your age) because it appears to be less than 8% effective above that age. Then there was the legendary Hank Aaron who took the Moderna vaccine trying to encourage minorities to do it, then started to become ill 2 days later, and quite unexpectedly died 10 days after that.

But hey, itís free, right?

   Well I'm not in line for it until I can feel a HELL of a lot more comfortable about it for several reasons.
     
    1) The poor track record of even producing a flu vaccine that works with any kind of predictability and consistency. Always lots of excuses on why this years or last years flu vaccine was largely ineffective. I won't accept, "Well, it's better than nothing" approach.

    2) You have 5 or 6 companies vying for the dollars that are involved in this, they ain't doing it for free! Which one is the best? Which one is the safest? Then revert back to reason #1. Especially for a vaccine that has to be kept at -95 degrees??? And some don't have to be frozen at all??

    3) You can say what you want about how the election turned out, but the CDC, WHO, and a whole host of others have been far from being fully forth coming on just what we are dealing with here. Faucci has admitted lying and stretching the truth numerous time numerous times because he didn't think we could grasp the situation or couldn't handle the truth. What is he, my Dad???Excuse me, but I think I can be the best judge of that. He's as much a dithering old man as Biden is! And so is Bix or what ever her name is. I think they are glowing examples of the saying that, " Those that can, do. Those that can't teach. And all the rest are in administration!

   4)  There is such a disparity among who gets really sick and dies, and who doesn't even show any symptoms. I don't think they have a full handle on the thing yet and can not predict anything about it. You can't believe any of the numbers put out because they have admitted making errors there and it has been proven that they are inflating the numbers. If you got hit by a truck and died but had tested positive for Covid, you are listed as a Covid related death. Now, people are dying after getting the vaccine in Europe, and they are listed as dying from their original health issues . The MSM touts all the grim numbers, "100 million cases world wide !!" and things like that, but don't follow that up with that all those cases are not still active, people that get it do get better, a very, very high number of them.  The MSM media is definitely not helping the situation by any stretch of the imagination!!

   No, count me out. I'm sorry but I'm not a Guinea pig.

   Do as you will of course, but I think that is probably not a good idea. While there is no doubt whatsoever that this entire episode has been characterized by blatant lies, manipulation, fraud, etc., the inescapable fact is that Wuhan Flu is dangerous and particular so the older the group you look at, and while there have been apocryphal stories about side effects and bad reactions, something like 20 million people have been vaccinated so far with very low incidence of side effects.

  I am in California Tier 1C, 50-65 year old critical defense worker, so I am probably going to become eligible in a week or so, I am getting it as soon as I can.

I grew up in the age of measles, mumps, polio, chicken pocks, rubella, scarlet fever and scarletina.  I had most of them except polio but the little girl next door did and was paralyzed from the waist down because her (wealthier than most in the neighborhood) parents didn't get her vaccinated.  That's why my ears are mostly burned out.  Vaccines saved my children from suffering ANY of these diseases. I'd have to think about taking the risk of a minor discomfort taking the vaccine...for about five seconds.   My arm is eager for the shot.  I hope in the next few weeks.

I wonder....how many who are hesitant about getting the shot spent their younger years putting whatever they could get their hands on in their bodies for kicks?

I wonder how many people will turn down a miracle?

I must re-iterate from above - the vaccine does not alter your DNA. 

My wife gets hers next week and I'm thankful for that. 

As far as clinical trials, the millions already administered at this point kind of makes them moot. 

Plus, we live in the year 2021.

Some of us need to stop acting like it's 1897.

I totally agree with Dave on this issue.  I had those diseases as well, except for Polio, thank the Lord, and I also knew a person who came down with polio and is crippled as a result.  I am 73 and suffer from emphysema from smoking to many cigarettes when I was younger.....I wasn't going to chance it. 

For now, this is still America and if you choose not to take it, that is your choice.

    And He also created nasty people with nasty minds that like to perpetrate nasty things like the nasty Wuhan China Virus. And the nasty people also that like to perpetrate the nasty hateful mind set that likes to politicize such things to spread fear amongst innocent people. And there is good reason to believe that this is what the whole nasty thing is about.  Time will tell.

I've had all those childhood diseases and is the reason I was behind my Kindergarden classmates.   Got the polio vaccine because it was required.   The last flu shot caused me about a week of work.   Haven't had one since.   At my age I won't chance another vaccine. D>K

When it was first announced that a Covid vaccine would soon be available, I thought that I did not want to be first in line.  My experiences with Flu shots were bad where I had sad reactions compared to the few times I did get some form of the Flu without taking the shots.   About two months ago, I asked my cardiologist what he thought about the vaccine and he said he would get it as soon as it became available to him.  He explained that a live virus is not being injected.  I then started to realize that this virus was going to be around for awhile - that it was probably just not going away any time soon.  I am 80 and diabetic.  I truly believe that it is likely just a matter of time before I am exposed and get the disease with a not too bright of an outcome.  So, my decision to proceed with the shots (now completed) was based on my feeling to fight this thing directly rather than wait for the otherwise probable outcome of contracting the disease.

   Well said Keith.  My one & only reaction to a vaccine was 5 years ago for  a second ( booster) for Phenomia . Felt like I was hung over for 2 days otherwise never.

Since I was diagnosed with Guillaine-Barre Syndrome in 1998, I have been cautioned not to take egg based shots.
As I aged, I realize that even the flu was a lot more dangerous to my (shot) immune system than the shot. I have been getting flu shots for the last 10 years or so....always have a reaction....even more numbness in my feet and fingers, slight fever and a little nausea.
Same reaction to the shingles shots, only a little worse.
Still better than tipping up my toes.

I got my first COVID shot a couple weeks ago....no reaction whatsoever....get the second on 2/7.

Choices.

I registered for the shot on line a couple weeks ago and finally got a reply from the Prince William County Health folks. (am in N. VA)
They stated that they received my registration request and at this time they do not have enough vaccine to go around and
that it will take weeks and possibly MONTHS to get enough to fill requests. I am in the 65 and up category.
The first responders and teachers, ect., were supposed to receive theirs, but there is not enough even here for them.
Will just have to wait patiently to get mine.

   My son got me scheduled for my first shot this coming Wednesday ( 2/3 ) at Randolph Macon College in Ashland, Virginia ( just above Richmond ). I am told they will schedule my second shot then. Sure is nice when your kids are looking out for you, huh?

I have a number of friends who are doctors and nurses.  They all claim that they wouldn't get the shot, even to the point of resigning their jobs if they are  forced to have it.  That's good enough for me.  We have no way of knowing what it contains, so it's a no from me.  Not for a couple more years anyway.  Thanks to all the Guinea Pigs out there who are making sure that by the time I have mine, any bugs will be sorted out.  I honour your sacrifice.

If my doctor couldn't explain what's in a vaccine I'd get a new doctor.
