I'm all for universal healthcare, but at this point I think idiots like this should be stuck with the medical bill

I let Fauci inside me for the first time this afternoon ... and I liked it!

So far, I feel great. Two hours later, I can't even find the spot on my arm where I had the shot. My mom's arm was already severely sore by this time.

i dont think universal healthcare means you can go to the hospital any time you please. at some point euthanasia is the best route.

what's needed to get biontech semivaccine here, at least as far as they told me:
go to the central supermarket, be as early as possible i guess, wait until 8 AM to be able to register (first if im first?), camp in queue for 2 hours until vaxxing starts, and if I succeed at being first then that's it. but if I don't then I need to wait until my turn comes.
and im certainly not postponing this until interest wanes or better opportunities arise, im getting the semi ASAP before the next wave hits

well, the thing I learned about vaccines is to be patient - every slot was taken and waits were long for three or four months then seemingly overnight, they're practically begging to jab you. I asked my pharmacist for months - no, no idea if we'll even be giving it (storage difficulty, don't know that we'll have the volume and don't want waste) but then when I went in for my monthly visit (AFTER getting the vaccine at another pharmacy in another town) she said they were going to be offering it there.

However, that said, I'm also glad I'm fully vaccinated (but still masked in stores). Went three different places earlier in the week: two national chains with virtually no one masked besides me and a regional chain were a good number (but no more than half) masked. I've no idea what to make of that but case numbers are blooming fast and so are hospitalizations, so ... I do read frequently about "July 4th related surge" and we're almost two weeks on so if cases don't fall during the coming week, we're riding a new wave - I gather it's number 5 now.

But, rumor is that vaccinations might be starting to climb again - between companies requiring/encouraging it before a return to the office and colleges/unis requiring it before fall term starts. Also, it seems people are starting to get some message - who knows, maybe it's hearing about a friend struggling to breath after contracting a hoax. IDK, it's really hard to have much pity after watching this play our for over 18 months now, but on some level I do feel sorry for those too blind or blinded to see the truth.

I'm starting to grow a bit concerned that boosters are also going to 'politicized' but not in the current way. It seems some in the US administration are against boosters because it sends the message the vaccines don't work. They also don't want to talk about breakthrough cases for the same reason. I'm now concerned that too many fully vaccinated people feel invincible. Don't mean to suggest that breakthrough cases are a big deal (yet) - the reported numbers are tiny and in line with vaccine efficacy percentages - probably even a bit lower. It's just people need to understand that engaging in risky behavior (all night rave, singing in a crowded hall, dining out) doesn't mean there isn't risk still. At least we know that MOST won't get seriously ill or die.

IDK, while there have been moments of heroism and doing the right thing, I'm too much of a pessimist to be able to half-full this thing. It really seems like humanity is falling to a new low.

I am now semi-vaccinated with Moderna (missed the boat for Biotech by one day). The next morning I had the other issues that usually send me reeling for a few seconds and this time I lost my consh, called doctors for the very first time in my life, they measured my blood pressure (it was very low) and sugar (fine) and gave me an injection. Those medical geniuses also doubted that my decision to vaccinate was a good idea wow and wondered why the heck am i not married with kids lol. I told em I'm an antinatalist as if they know what that means.

Arm was disabled for a few days, today almost to 100%, back to exercise.

but
Vaccinated people can carry as much virus as others, raising new COVID risks

The point of it is that it will most likely stop severe side effects. The vast majority of hospitalizations are the unvaccinated.

That was only half the point. But in a month I can visit with other vaccinated people at least. Will continue to wear a shield in close spaces.
