Those vaccines were properly tested before being pushed on the public.  And, drug companies would be legally (financially) responsible if those vaccines caused a health problem. 

Meanwhile, Covid was rushed through in truly record time.  It has not been properly tested.  But, the drug companies don’t care, because they are legally not liable even if they KNEW the vaccine would cause the problems. 

A year from now, if you and all the others who got the vaccine are doing fine, I’ll take it.
I think that is an ill informed and dangerous comment. All of the required testing has been done and reviewed according to all of the relevant legislation. It is simply not true to say it has not been properly tested. Yes it has happened quicker because funds were available to enable review and analysis to be done immediately.
Im actually surprised that your comments have not been picked up and removed

@Megan, @Pammie, thank you for your support.

Tomorrow I planned to go to Costco ( I love Costco) and get some food. I need to return a top too and I wanted to get another supply of super cute sox. So it depends on how my foot feels. I could hold off another week if need be. I have a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for my ex's birthday. I will be going over there to exchange gifts for Christmas. I missed Christmas and News Years and my ex's birthday.

I did not break a bone in my foot so hopefully all will work out soon.
-------------------------
I got a used electric guitar and beautiful amp today. Goal is to learn haw to play. The guy that gave them to me is in a band and wanted to give his older stuff away.
--------------------------

Dr. Pleasure works where I work. We wear 2 ply surgical masks at work, non patient areas. Eye shields and N95 masks in patient rooms. Covid rooms gloves and gowns are worn ad eye shields in addition. I spent 16 nights straight in March in the Covid ward while the nurses were trained and coordination could be done. Medical staff in the covid rooms wore PAPRS, double gloves and tyvak suits and booties over the tyvek. This was the same as what we wear for Ebola. We are an Ebola center and I am on the bio-response team.

Since then we lowered the precautions to our present level. We had an outbreak with Nursing on a unit. It happens. If you let your guard down you will be infected.

I wore a mask at work and I had very limited outside exposure and wore a mask. I sat in an office next to a guy that had covid for 10 days. Because I wore a double ply surgical mask my viral load was low. My innate immune system was able to handle the viral load until my T cells made a specific covid response. My immune system was not over whelmed. This is what Dr. Pleasure, who work where I work says. I trust Dr. Pleasure. 

I am getting the vaccine post covid infection. The reason is there are variations to the Covid 2 virus. The South African strain has 4 spots that are supper sticky and allows the virus to enter cells easier. It is no more dangerous, just enters cells easier. I want an innate immunity(past virus exposure and have an immune response capacity) to battle the next wave. It is coming and we need to be healthy and have immunity.
 

I am getting the covid 2 vaccine next week. I had covid. I trust in the health care system.

We have a real issue with African Americans not trusting the system and not getting the vaccine at work. My dad died at 59 from strokes, my mom died from heart attacks. Both died over a 3 month period of living hell. Covid presents a high organ and vascular inflammatory response starting at day 10 to day 30. It all depends on the individual too.  Alcoholism, Meth and Heroine addictions and depression are in my family. I do my best to be healthy in body and mind. I am an alcoholic, and suffer from depression. During the pandemic I have done exceptionally well mentally and health wise. I still speak with my therapist every 2 weeks and set goals. I am doing everything I can to be healthy physically, emotionally and mentally. I actively seek out opportunities to do new things and do the things I think I will like to do. I love life and want to live every moment of every day.

Covid is but a portion of my life. I am doing things to win the Covid battle. I was back to work 8 days after getting covid and the CDC allowed me to return to work. The other two in the office that got covid are still out.

My Mom and Dad always said, "life is for the living. Live your life". I have been battling to live up to that for the past 9 years. Trans strong.

I had my first vaccination shot of the Moderna vaccine Thursday afternoon. I spent Friday in bed sick. Saturday I am much better but still have a slight head ache and can only be on my feet for 20 minutes at a time. I am sure tomorrow I will be 100%. It came infast and is leaving the same. I did not eat or drink yesterday but am drinking today and will try some keto ice cream and if that goes well some cheese and pickles with mustard.

I am really tired of being sick. But I am lucky i was able to get back on my feet relatively quickly. The vaccine, maybe I should have put it off a while longer but I think it would not matter.

I scheduled my next shot on a Friday. I had some second thoughts but I need to get it.

So yesterday I did not dilate or pump and no Tracy's Dog. But today I will. There was a party last night. When I get my next shot and recover I will go to parties. I really like them.

What will life be like post covid? I want to go to India, Thailand and Vietnam.

Rachel,

Glad to hear you're getting protection from this blight, and that the side effects were short-lived.

It may take months, but life in the company of others will hopefully come again. X

Hopefully by summer this will (mostly) be a distant memory! On the work end, I want to go to business conferences and meet collaborators and maybe some potential clients. And on the personal side, I can't wait to visit all my friends and family across the country who haven't seen me since pre-transition.

I have seen it reported in “reputable” news source (if those still exist) that this is the new normal, and even after vaccines we will all need to social distance and wear masks from now on.  To that I say “I’m not doing that.”  If I go to prison for not doing it, so be it.  But, I am not doing this indefinitely.  I will do it until I have been vaccinated and waited the recommended weeks for full immunity, but then for me it is back to life as usual (whether legal or not).

I thought that because I had covid that I would not have a reaction to the 1st shot of the vaccine. I also thought that if I did not have a reaction to the first shot then the second shot would be a easy. What I was thinking is all wrong.

The injection sight is super itchy and painful. The skin over my deltoid is hot and red and there are three whitish welts. I think I had a reaction :)

Saturday night 2000 hrs and I am feeling great with the exception of the injection area. I am sure in a day or two it will be fine.

I will follow up with some peeps Tuesday in IP&C to see if they had heard of similar reactions. My daughter works in the hospital next to ours and she said several nurses had reactions to the 1st dose of the vaccine and they had covid too. I think the 2nd shot will be en experience.

@Rachel
Dear Rachel:
Regarding your posting, I am concerned regarding the reactions you have had to the vaccine.
I trust that you will be able take the 2nd dose without more serious issues.

I am glad that you are not reporting serious and life threatening
 symptoms with the Covid...
... how soon will you be able to test negative?

Stay safe, stay healthy..
..
HUGS,
Danielle
