Sticky Post
The original COVID-19 Outbreak thread has been closed but is still available as a read-only thread (sticky above). The original thread had become less and less about new information and more about petty bickering. The purpose of this new thread is to link or report new information as it comes out. Try not to go off course from the topic. Those of you who had been banned from the original thread feel free to participate in this new thread. Just stay on topic. Thank you.
-----------------
Edit - Andrus:
Bottom line is that moving forward we simply don't want any political bickering going on within this thread, and want to try to limit this thread to being as much about sharing Covid-19 information as possible.

If you want to discuss the political aspects of Covid-19 with other SR members, you can do so here (If you are not already registered there, you will be required to do so)...

Fresno county here in California after being over 30 is down to 7.9 and falling quickly
I hadn’t realized I’d left the polar vortex thread and come to the Covid one - I was very impressed with how precise your temperature readings were

My firend in Tampa was in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, traveled to Iceland as their outbreak was getting rolling, then he went to NYC as it was exploding, then was in Florida during it's summer boom. We joke that he is patient 0 spreading his covid seed all over the planet. He has been on at least 60 flights the last year, took only minor precautions like wearing a mask in public and washing his hands. Tested negative for antibodies twice, never had it, wasn't exposed, doesn't know anyone close to him that has had it, none of his family has gotten it in any part of the country. Then you have people like my wife's family and I that have seen it run wild through both sides of family, our friends and neighbors.

These are the states I've been to since Covid started, many of them multiple times.

I haven't been exposed once but also took some pretty extreme precautions. I've only been on a handful of commercial flights (all but one since getting the vaccine) and have been on a few small private flights. The rest has been in my car, by myself, sleeping in my car and packing my own food when Covid was really running hard. When covid was at lower levels I stayed in some hotels but always made sure they had independent heating/cooling units in each room, wore a mask and disinfected the room myself. During the stretch from the second half of November until I got the vaccine in January I completely took off from work and stayed at home because I knew how bad it would be and just didn't take any chances. I've completely avoided friends and family, didn't eat out until after vaccine, didn't even go to the store (had groceries delivered) and kids have been homeschooled. I probably didn't need to go that far but I haven't been exposed. I also understand that not everyone can do those things. However, there is a big difference between my actions and not changing any behavior at all. Unfortunately only my mom, two of my aunt's and my wife's aunt really took it at least somewhat seriously. Now here we are a year later and the only family members that took it serious are the only ones that didn't get it. It's quite telling.
Just curious - do you know your friend’s blood type?

my parents got their 2nd vaccine - yay

but fwiw, she said on both shots my dad's blood sugar went through the roof
now he's had 2 diabetic comas, so i imagine that's a factor but it seems noteworthy

eta, to be clear the diabetic comas were a few years ago - did not intend to make it seem connected to the vaccine

Looks like you only need one Pfizer shot instead of two - that would massively change our available supply....

I hope all this turns out to be true, Mr. S. I made the drive from Slidell to Covington last Thursday morning and I received the Pfizer vaccine. I waited the required 15 minutes after receiving the shot before heading back to Slidell.

About half-way back, I started feeling quite fatigued and had trouble staying awake. I made it home and slept about 14 of the next 24 hours. When I got up late Friday morning I felt much better, but later in the day the fatigue returned, had aching in my joints (mostly hips and shoulders), was running a fever (100.4), and nausea that was nonstop. I also had zero appetite. When I did try to eat a little something, the nausea would abate a little but was replaced by stomach pains. Here it is Sunday night and I am still experiencing all these side-effects from the vaccine.

From all I have read, the second injection is more likely prone to side-effects. If I can avoid a second injection I would be one happy camper. Still running around a 100.0 fever. The max was 100.6. I sure hope this all ends soon.

Hope it fades soon Dan, that's rough.

It's crazy how it varies. My parents both got the Pfizer vaccine and neither had anything except soreness in the arm for about a day.

Were you around anyone prior to get the vaccine that could have exposed you to Covid? I've heard of some allergic reactions, some people with symptoms like yours but there haven't been any reports of symptoms from the vaccine lasting a week. You may want to get tested if there was any chance you were exposed in the 7 days leading up to the vaccine. If not then I would report your symptoms to a doctor.

As for the vaccine, the studies for the phizer vaccine show a really strong response after 22 days. The booster shot boosts the antibodies by 10 fold though. So while the protection it offers is only a small percentage higher against the typical strains, the booster will help with the newer strains and likely offer very long lasting immunity. Got to admit though, if the first one made me feel as bad as you are then I'd probably just roll with the first shot. Hopefully you feel better soon.

As for the 15 or so people that have gotten the vaccine so far, the only sypmtom any of them have had is a sore arm and they all had that. Know a few that had the second shot and none had more than a sore arm for that either but I'm expecting a down day. My 2nd shot has been postponed twice now due to the weather but it is scheduled for Wednesday. I'm staying up late the night before and getting up early that morning with the plans of sleeping hard after getting the shot.

I have read but (can't confirm) that if you experience side effects from the first shot it means you already have antibodies (ie you've had COVID).

Hope you feel better!

Hospitalizations are the key stat imo
Do we now think that the once-assumed correlation between (a) raw positive case counts and (b) number hospitalized is breaking? IOW ... are truly mild cases (no long hauler symptoms) now much more the overwhelmingly common norm than, say, back in spring & summer 2020?

Sounds like you may have already had it prior to the first shot. Asymptomatic maybe?
