Covid Jabs....?

Postby C » 14 Aug 2021, 00:30

My 17 year old got his yesterday at a mobile drop-in in the next village Stone

They wouldn't do Zed who is 16 younger but 6 miles down the road at a hospital in Sidcup they are doing walk-ins for 16 pluses on Sunday

How odd!

I'm sure it's a relief for you and your wife. Vaccination is the key, for all ages. As I mentioned elsewhere, the 5 of us 'adults' got all the shots, but there's this little 5-year old granddaughter running around in the house so we still have to be so careful and considerate. With all the craziness around, it will take another 2 years to get us through this.

Looks like Peter Sutcliffe, Yorkshire killer, has been downed by COVID.

An ad campaign for a made up North Carolina funeral home. When you go to the "home"s' website, you get redirected to schedule a vaccination appointment.

Well done. :D

Seems like a lot of preparation just for a booster, but so be it.

Seriously, they've started rolling out the third shot (aka the booster shot, here at least) to the most vulverable here (age and/or health). No news yet on whether peeps like me will get one but I am sort of hoping so. In my mind, it can only be a good thing.

Well it gives me a chance to roll out this old chestnut:

I had my third jab a couple of weeks ago - Pfizer this time, after the first two Astra Zeneca jabs.
I will have a booster - they told me the third jab wasn't a booster - in six months.

I felt a bit dodgy for a day but nothing serious.

I have my flu jab on Saturday.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

I can’t wait for my booster but it’s not going to be till after mid November, even though I’m in the clinically vulnerable group. I’m going to London for a few days before that, with my best pal, so will be focusing on half empty museums and outdoor pursuits… I seem to know more people with Covid now than at any time previously…

Because I'm Team J&J, I am allowed a booster, which I've scheduled for Wednesday.

Hate to say 'looking forward to it', but...kinda.

I've cleared my schedule for the next couple days just in case my I'm hit with bigger side effects than I had last time (slight fever and general achiness 12 hours later; was fine the next morning).

2nd J&J for the wife and me some time next week. Supposed to give you 94% immunity for a year. That's good enough for me.

We are scheduled for a Moderna booster on Tuesday. R wanted it on Monday but we are going to hear Mikaela Davis Monday night and I didn’t want to risk any possible side effects to taint the evening. A half dose might not do anything but not worth the risk to dampen a show.
