    Wow, talk about the nick of time!

    Got my second shot over two weeks ago. Was a bit run down the day after I got it, but other than that, no side effects. My boyfriend and I went out to eat for the first time in a long time this past weekend. I had a weird moment while we were waiting on our food: I realized that I missed the sound of a bustling restaurant! There were a lot of senior citizens at the restaurant too. I'm assuming they've either been vaccinated for a while or just don't give a shit at this point. Either way, it was nice to return to some form of normality. Sadly, this shit is not over yet, and it's probably going to be quite a while before it does end.

    I'm in a position where I got my first shot of Astra-Zeneca back in march and will most likely receive Biontech/Pfizer as a second one. At least my vaccination card will be somewhat unique I guess...

    Yeah, my husband and I went out to eat on Sunday INDOORS at a restaurant for the first time in over a year. The restaurant was nearly empty, but it was great.

    A few other restaurants we attempted were really packed, though, mostly due to limited capacity. And a sudden rain shower outside, where people HAD been dining. Many people here are still preferring to eat outdoors (us included).

    No thank you, I'll just keep on keeping on if you don't mind.

    Also there are places that will laminate your card for you. Please don't do this. I know it sounds good but what if you need another shot in a year? Have them make a copy of it and laminate that and then keep the original in a safe place.

    The place I got my shot gave me a little plastic slip cover for my card, which I thought was dope.

    Weird how they hand-write it though, anyone could just write that they got the shot then. Why not a print out?

    I got my name handwritten on it, but my doses are printout stickies.

    I have felt like absolute ass since 10pm last night (12 hr post 2nd jab). Body aches, fever up to 102 with chills, caved at 11:30 and took two ibuprofen, and then proceeded to sweat all night. Today I'm living on the sofa with relentless headache and body aches. Thankfully it's a slow day at work.

    I should say I'm ok with this. There's no doubt my body has set up a reaction to this, so there's that.

    I don't know how many are on the fence about the vaccines but I thought this was a really good thread:

    this should have been done days ago. I still don't understand this... this isn't a joke. C'mon world. If you have an outbreak, QUARANTINE YOURSELF. Japan, QUARANTINE YOURSELF. Pretty much all of India, same thing. I swear... responding rationally to emergencies has been destroyed by the Trump administration's response to pretty much everything, and the support base he cultivated while doing it. We need to just responsibly say "hey, if there's a Covid outbreak in your country, you can't come here for a minute." It's not xenophobic, it's responsible.

    Cases at a 7 month low here in the US. India still getting absolutely rocked atm. Biden admin stops playing footsy w/the notion of opening up the vaccine patents to the world & gives a pretty solid endorsement to the idea (could have went further but I'll take it for now).

    "True COVID-19 death tolls is double the official numbers, study finds"
    https://www.axios.com/actual-covid-1...b64d9601e.html

    That would put American deaths around 900K.

    I believe it.

    To be honest, the mRNA technology is easily adaptable. This is how you had two companies come up with the same vaccine in the same time frame, and they have almost the same efficacy. You could patent it, but someone just has to tweak the salt solution used or modify one step, and it circumvents that.

    I read a thread about the patent issue and it's not as simple as Pfizer or Moderna granting permission. A lot of the technology is being licensed from other patent holders, both related to the vaccine itself and the equipment that produces it. The patents are not the only issue and somehow waiving them away with a wand does not magically ramp production. I'll try to find the thread.

    Oh, didn't realize that. That's a good quick explanation.
