I am not yet vaccinated, but the S. Korean government is boosting it recently. Most aged people are now vaccinated. Two people were dead from the side effect of AstraZeneca while other deaths are not yet confirmed to be directly related to vaccination.

I can speak regarding my area, but not the rest of the country. 

In my area, the lower income people and people on government assistance are extremely resistant to getting vaccinated.  I spoke someone just this morning who if afraid of getting the vaccine.  He is a 20 something black male of modest income.  He doesn't trust the vaccine, he doesn't trust the government and he thinks that he either will not get sick, or will get over it on his own. 

Truthfully, he is probably right in his belief that he will get well on his own if he get's sick.  He is young and he is fit.  He doesn't have cancer, diabetes or any other significant risk factor.  >99% of people in his demographic will not suffer significant long term health problems from getting Covid 19.  His ONLY significant risk factor is his race, which statistically is more likely to get the virus, and more likely to be hospitalized if they do get the virus.

In my area, many black people have the idea that government vaccines don't necessarily work as advertised.  They are ALL well aware of the "Tuskegee Experiment".  If the government wants to push the vaccine to black people, they assume that the government isn't doing it to be nice to them. 

And, they don't trust big pharma.  And, they know that big Pharma has NO LIABILITY if things go badly.  They don't want to be lab test subjects.  And, that is what everyone who get's the vaccine is, including me.  I got my vaccine On April 1, and my arm is still sore.  In fact, it is getting worse.  And, no one has any idea what to do about it if it doesn't just go away on its own.  I feel (right now) like someone has punched me in the arm (hard). 

I can certainly understand why any young healthy person would not want to take an experimental vaccine.  And, the argument that they don't trust "science" goes nowhere, because "science" says the vaccines are still in the experimental stage.  We don't have any idea what the long term effects are.  For me, so far, it is a sore arm.  But, I have significant risk factors.  Better a sore arm than dead from Covid 19.

Yikes! Have you talked to your doc about it any? DW complained about her vaccinated arm hurting for such a long time that I was convinced she had a connective tissue injury.

No.  What can he say about it?  CDC doesn’t have anything.  Janssen Pharmaceuticals doesn’t have any advice.  I am sure he wouldn’t tell me anything they haven’t.  They both said “it goes away in most people within a few days.”  So, what if it doesn’t?  “Ugh, call somebody else, we don’t have an answer.”

I suppose when you take an experiment drug, you should expect no one to know about complications.  That’s why it is still experimental.

It does make me angry that after I told them about the problem, they haven’t followed up with more questions.  It almost seems like they don’t WANT to hear about problems, because they want people to feel good about getting the vaccine. So, blind eye to the problems.

Yeah, that is creepy. If there's simply nothing for it, you'd think they'd be doing themselves a big favor if they let people know. Could also be because the reaction always has gone away, but they have no way of predicting when yours will.


DW's pain finally melted away. It did take quite some time.

DW's pain finally melted away. It did take quite some time.

I took the opportunity over the weekend to clarify with DW what actually happened. She said that at its worst, she lost one degree of freedom of motion in her shoulder from weakness and pain; that the serious pain took about three months to subside; and that she still has a bit of residual tenderness even now, some five months after her second shot.

She also said her massage therapist told her he knows of quite a few people with similar pain.

Might not be the happiest of news for you, Rachel, but you most certainly don't seem unique.

Once again, I experience something that most people don’t, but I am not alone.  Oh well, maybe that is everyone’s experience at some time or another.
