    Default CV arm poke

    Who is getting one of the new vaccines?

    Why or why not? What's your level of desire for it? Do you really want it or would it be more a matter of necessity that in other circumstances you'd pass on?

    What are your concerns, if any?

    Where do you look for information?


    Answer any or all of those questions or ones I didn't ask. I'm just curious what you all think.

    I’m aware of the potential for harm that COVID has, because both of my parents died from it last year, about two weeks apart. Since I’m not seven years old and immortal, I decided to get a shot just for the added insurance.

    I’m betting that I’ll die of a heart attack, which I’m fine with, but I sometimes lose bets. Not often, but it happens. On the other hand, I’m frankly scared to death of dying from loss of breath.


    I got the Pfizer vaccine because my health care provider offered it for free. I had zero concerns about its safety because I’m Si-PoLR.

    I had no reaction to the first shot for two days, then I actually fell asleep while driving (which has only happened to me once before, when I was 21 and thoroughly drunk) and bounced off the guardrail and then drove home and fell asleep and felt exhausted and sick for 1.2 days. I was fine after that.
    I just had a second shot yesterday and I feel fine. Gonna avoid driving for a few days, though, just in case.

    I'm set to get the second dose of Pfizer next week. After the first shot I felt a little tired and nauseous that evening but it was gone by the next day. Fortunately I didn't have to go anywhere so I could just go to bed early and slept like a brick.

    I don't feel any qualms about the vaccine, it just feels like a necessity if I want to interact with real humans again. Up until two years ago I'd never had a flu shot, so am not usually a person who scrambles to protect myself from illness. Maybe this is an Sp-last thing. I work a lot with children so figured I'd built a natural immunity to the regular flu over the years.

    And my knowledge of the vaccines is....pretty low. Most info has come from the CDC.

    I don't think it's the "new" one? I am not sure. I think I got moderna. Probably does not provide as much protections towards the newer strain, like the Brazilian one. I am waiting for them to make vaccines for those, myself.

    I will get my second dose tomorrow.

    I've had the first round of the Astrazeneca one.

    It did not hurt at all (barely noticed it).

    My upper arm felt quite bruised a couple of days later (like it had been punched), although any pain went within a week. Had a headache for a day or two.

    I very much wanted to get vaccinated if the option was able to. I fear spreading the virus to loved ones, also fear getting "long covid" and having long-term damage to lungs etc.

    I think my only fear of getting vaccinated itself was the military-style operation of it all and not wanting to put a foot wrong.

    i got my first moderna jab january 4, second feb 6.

    I've been working as a dishwasher in a retirement/nursing home/rehab place through all this, from the first creeping positives in someone i was sitting next to in the breakroom just the day before to having half the facility walled off with plastic sheets and duct tape because of covid outbreak down the hallway from where i work all day. i also have a brother i live with who's been in chemo for lung and brain cancer through all this. i don't know if i focus on them to avoid having to decide for myself, but whatever, i got it the first time it was available to us. i stopped counting the number of times i've been tested somewhere around 30, but it's been pretty much every week (at some points twice a week) since this started, (i'm literally stalling off going into work for my weekly test right now lol). Even though the vast majority of us are vaccinated at this point, we still work all day in masks and regularly get tested for covid, so not much has changed there, but we are opening up a bit more activity wise and stuff as far as the residents quality of life is concerned (also my mom, who's in independant living in a place across town). idk, it's been interesting. i've grown through all this.

    blah, i'm fighting battles with myself about what to include and what's going off the rails into what i said at the start. also, i should go get a qtip up the nose. heh. gunna go do that and come back to finish this... (back, bastards didn't tell me that testing is now once a month).

    back to what i was saying, yeah, i wanted to get the vaccine (into myself) for myself and all the people in my life at home and at work who have a much higher chance of having a bad time with covid. my concerns are minimal on vaccine side effects, but i've got that twinge inside me about the conspiracy sides of things and how it's all got the clusterF flavor of modern life while still being history of humankind repeating yet again. i don't want anyone forced into it though, different people have different situations and concerns.

    Where do you look for information?
    i originally got linked to him by old timey member implied, Dr John Campbell on youtube has been/is an excellent source of daily evidence based explanation and commentary on the medical side of the pandemic.

    Answer any or all of those questions or ones I didn't ask. I'm just curious what you all think.
    half a day later with this open in a post window, imma just hit submit on what i wrote to this point, even though i feel like i didn't say 95% of what's in my head. gotta start getting ready for work, maybe i'll come back after.


    to summarize, Hi Minde

    I'm getting it as soon as I can because it's free and my company is paying me $75 for it that I can put on an Amazon gift card.

    we had a pharmacy affiliated vaccination team take over a larger room for a day to run a vaccination clinic at my work (they've been doing this once a month since january). everything was very smooth and comfortable except the short skinny bald guy running the first vaccination team had beady reptilian eyes. i had already not helped a co-worker that day trying to tell her what i knew of side effects to chill her out (she was crying in our smoking section from being so freaked out over side effects right after getting her first shot). i had the sense not to tell her what to me was an amusing "did ya notice he had illuminati eyes?".

    You should be OK, but if your eyes start turning into cameras and you feel the need to recharge your energy by rolling on a bed of gold coins, get help immediately.

    @Minde, I hope you see my thread see my thread: https://www.the16types.info/vbulleti...Covid-Vaccine! Just tune into ANY part of the first videos of doctors around the world warning against it.

    It got closed because in these times censoring is a thing. We are all supposed to think the same group-think, so opposing opinions that we find in free speech are threatening.

    I could add more and more to this topic since I started that thread, but a lot of people don't care. The propaganda is high for taking the shot, but it is not hard for a person to look and find out why it is dangerous. A lot of people don't want to be bothered with taking charge of their own health - they believe the government will tell them what to do, or it is too complicated for them to understand without a medical degree.

    My close friend who is EII who got her nursing degree a few years ago gives a simple reason for not getting one: She learned in nursing school what it takes to deem a vaccination safe, and this vaccination did not use he required procedures or take the necessary time required to meet safety standards. So that's it for her.

    I still for sorry for your crying coworker! Is she required to get the shot, even though it feels wrong to her?

    The whole covid circus is full of creepiness even without any illuminati eyes. I dread being told I need to take a covid test and having my data a part of that corrupt system, so maybe you can help me out. Since you have had THIRTY of them, will you please tell me what that is like?? I mean, obviously the foot-long swab is a creepuy thing I never heard of til covid outbreak happened, but now they have a less invasive test. Have you done both? How does this go for you? How invasive is the less-invasive test??

    I already had Covid, so I don't see any reason to get the vaccine.

    My concerns about getting it are that there's no recourse if anything goes wrong, and that pharma companies aren't above poisoning or killing people when it makes them money. Probably they're safe. But if they aren't, and it turns out they give people cancer or something, you can't do anything about it. So even if I hadn't already gotten Covid, I'd just risk getting sick, since I have statistically no chance of dying from Covid.

    Another reason I distrust the vaccines is that media are treating them like they're 100% safe, everyone should certainly get them, and anyone with doubts is a paranoid conspiracy theorist. The more one-sidedly the media portray any issue the more reason I see to doubt the narrative.

    I've gotten both of mine and had no side effects at all. I've noticed at work there's kind of this annoyance people who have the vaccine have with people who don't have it because nobody wants to wear their masks still. Don't blame em, I wouldn't want to either. Imagine having to wear masks in fear that you'd spread measles to people who hadn't gotten the vaccines as kids

    we are not required to be vaccinated to work there, it's by choice (we are required to be tested though, and i'll get to that in your next set of questions). she had actually already had covid-19 earlier in the year, but still chose in the end to get fully vaccinated to boost her immunity against reinfection (she DID NOT want to get it again).

    Thank you for that.
    i have only had the pcr test. it is not bad at all, in my opinion, if you know what to expect.

    it goes like this...

    sit in a chair and idly chit-chat with nurse while she gets stuff ready for a minute.
    take off mask, close eyes, and tilt head back.
    nurse inserts a thin long qtip into your nostril (fairly deep into your sinus which is probably a new sensation, but not painful once you know it) then gently rotates it five times and removes it. done. the actual q-tip thing only takes a few seconds and, like i said, once you know what to expect it's not bad at all.
    put your mask back on and sarcastically say "thanks! see ya next week!" and go about your day.


    for what it's worth, this is pretty much how i described it to my 84 year old mother before she got her first test and she agreed afterwards (and thought that knowing this, what to expect, helped). she's in an Independant Living situation across town where they have been tested weekly as well.



    beyond your question onto the darker aspects of all this, i'm not sure there's anything i can say that would help. it feels silly being a dishwasher/kitchen boy saying this, but i'm pretty well focused on the medical facility side of this because of my work and brother and stuff.it sucks that it's all so political outside of my little world, but it's unavoidable. this is how this part of human history goes. the wheel it turns around and around, it makes an ancient grinding sound. i idly pay attention to those parts but it's more a source of dark amusement/interest than a dwelling (i hope ).

    Ah yes, alphas lining up for the newest tech and need to conform to the latest publicly held virtues. "Just do you part so we can all go back to normal".

    Over all the pandemic will be good for Elon Musk, so I don't know why he was complaining in the beginning. I mean, having the latest broadband infrastructure and precedence for all those internet satellites can't be bad for his future business.
