Have you been vaccinated?

I have so few readers, and so very, very few comments, that I need each of you to be safe.

Imagine a world almost completely polio free. That happened because my parents, and almost every other parent that could, got my sibling and I vaccinated. If you do not want to do it for yourself, please do it for the kids, so they can get back to a more normal life.

Here is what I wish I could do for Halloween!

  1. Not only am I vaccinated, but in quite a coincidence, actually got my booster yesterday. As a result I am feeling a bit foggy today, but not as bad as I did when I first got the vaccine and certainly not even close to when I had Covid itself.

  2. Yup. I’m double dossed with Pfizer and awaiting the Belgium government’s decision, due on Saturday, on if they will roll out a booster shot for everyone and not just the over sixty fives. I will take the shot, if it is offered

    1. Wish they would roll it out for 65 and older in Canada, but a political system that has the Assh*le prime minister thinking only of votes, leaves it to the provinces to decide. Wondering if I travel to a province giving it, to be able to have the third vaccine shot.

  3. Not sure the data supports the boosters to the degree I’d hope, but I will take one when available. I’d rather overrate the vaccine than underrate this damn virus.

    1. I absolutely believe they are necessary, at least for 65 and older people. Some facts were that in Canada, we delayed the second dose much longer than suggested, and instead of a ten fold increase in antibodies, they were saying it gave 2 to 3 times as many. Also, they say that younger people produce more anti-bodies than older people, so bring it on for over 65, and possibly over 50.

  4. Hello Red,

    Yes, my family and I, we are all vaccinated.
    My wife was first to have it, being a nurse. I had to wait till September, lived like a monk.
    My daughter is vaccinated too, she is just 13 years old.

    I have mixed feelings about this boosters. Why oh why can’t we ship those boosters to the people who need them the most, the people in Africa, Asia, South America and East Europe?
    We are handing out armour to people who are already wearing flag-jackets.

    Anyway, a day living in health is a day you could recieve a healthy spanking.

    1. agreed that they should be giving more to other countries, but people over 65 are at risk! you see young people eating in restaurants, attending events, football, baseball, but notice the lack of seniors. We need our life back, and the third vaccine is as good as it ever is going to be, so we need it to live and enjoy life.
      The second dose, tested after 6 months, in a very large study, showed NO antibodies to protect the person. In addition, seniors having a lower metabolism, created less antibodies than young people. I can send you the articles. Seniors no longer have a flack jacket of protection. Similar to getting a flu vaccine, but it wanes after six months, when flu season is over. Covid is here all 12 months of the year.

  5. My wife and I got the J&J shot in March. Because the health department in our county was so f’d up, we drove a 600 mile roundtrip to get the shot at a country health department that was open to anyone, any age. A lot of other folks did the same thing. Next week, we will get the Moderna booster shot. In our community, nearly 100% of the people wear masks which is good as we do get out to go grocery shopping every three or so weeks and really stock up.

    1. Here are the ingredients of the J&J vaccine: The Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine includes the following ingredients: recombinant, replication-incompetent adenovirus type 26 expressing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, citric acid monohydrate, trisodium citrate dihydrate, ethanol, 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HBCD), polysorbate-80, sodium chloride.

      Now who among us know what those ingredients are. I can say them, but beyond that, I haven’t a clue. But what does it matter if the vaccine keeps you safe and healthy? did anyone ask that ridiculous question during their childhood when we were getting vaccines in the 60s? No. We were told that the vaccine would keep us safe and healthy and that has remained good enough for me.

      1. Agreed, that you have to believe in somethings, and scientists are our best bet. Vaccines have solved many viruses. They are working for this virus! If I studied for 50 years, I would still not make sense of what is in them, nor do i need to understand!

    2. We got the shots the first day they were available for our age group, and got the booster when it was announced, being with an appointment from the pharmacy website, before even the pharmacy people knew about it. They had to call head office, then gave the shot. Our community is 88% vaccinated of those eligible, and we have gone from over 4000 new cases a week, to now around 100 new cases a week. vaccines and masks work!

  6. This time last year El Paso TX led the nation in the % of new people getting Covid. Guess it scared us enough to get our act together. We are now 75% vaccinated. I got my 3rd shot/2nd booster in Sept. The governor has said no more masks necessary, but most of us are still wearing them anyway going into stores, clinics, etc.
    I think you have more readers than you think. We’re just too chicken/lazy to comment often.

  7. Hi Kathy: nice to hear from you. Glad you chose to comment! Thrilled to hear that things are getting so much better where you live due to being vaccinated and wearing masks. I will wear a mask anywhere indoors in the public, and can eat inside a restaurant now, but only fully vaccinated (two doses) can eat inside. i hope they keep that for a long time. Restaurants are well spaced, and we tip extremely generously.
