    i know two people who've had it so far. my friend tested positive and although he hasn't been hospitalised it's basically ruined his life for the past six months, he's still only working part time hours 'cause he's so drained physically (edit: and it's some tech office job working from home i should add lol, not a labour job or something). mid-'30s, i think he has mild asthma but wasn't an at risk person or anything, pretty unlucky. his girlfriend also had it and was fine after a few days.

    "Go fuck yourself"... always the well thought out and measured response that shows maturity and insight. I stand corrected. You are probably who I will listen to in regards to all future medical decisions while I navigate the rest of the covid pandemic. Thank you for your wisdom.

    I wouldn't be so sure. A few nurses and ex-nurses peddle conspiracy theories and the like. Anyway, testing positive a week after being vaccinated amounts to nothing but bad luck. The first dose of the vaccine takes a couple of weeks to kick in and be effective.

    Doesn't it also depend on the vax given? I'm sure I remember the experts here saying AZ doesn't necessarily stop you getting covid and you may still test positive but it stops you being able to pass it on to others. Or words to that effect.

    Got my 1st Pfizer shot yesterday. I don’t give a shit about covid nor do I give a shit about the vaccine. Neither will do anything to my impenetrable body.

    But when the borders reopen, I just want to have a vaccine card to shove in the face of airport customs officials. You might say I’m bowing down to government control, yielding to “the man”. Perhaps you’re right.

    But nothing, not even my pride, can stand in the way of my ability to lick European anus. Nothing!

    Not to be that guy (don't come at me with agression for saying this) but anecdotal evidence from someone who's neither a scientist nor a doctor means little to nothing in the scientific scheme of things

    Got my first Moderna shot. Other than a sore shoulder, no side effects. I hear the second shot is a kick in the head.

    Second one definitely had me feeling like shit for about a day and a half. Feverish, exhausted, achey, nauseous, etc.

    i got the one-shot-vaccine, so i don't have to worry about showing up to the appointment for the second-shot
    2
    before the pandemic i knew the words "COVID" and "coronavirus"
    i knew these words as "something that Lysol kills"
    3
    i don't know about the rest of the world
    but in Dallas, Texas, USA
    before the pandemic the masks labeled "N-95" were fucking everywhere
    as litter
    you couldn't walk around outside without tripping over/stepping on something stamped "N-95"
    but then there was a "N-95 mask shortage"
    so what the fuck happened??
    did the factories that make N-95 masks get shut down when the bars and resturaunts shut down??
    4
    i was actually being kinda serious when i said i was "patient zero"
    in the middle of summer 2019 i temporarily lost my sense of smell
    at the time i thought it was because of the meth i was smoking
    didn't care that my sense of smell was gone because all my other senses remained intact and i reaquired my sense of smell before december
    so i really could have healed from Coronavirus before anyone had even labeled it as a thing especially when you take into consideration the fact that i'm always a typhoid-mary when it comes to a "regular flu"

    also
    i've never had any kind of side-effect reactions from any vaccines, ever
    and the paperwork for the one-shot-vaccine says "this vaccine does not contain any virus and cannot infect any person with coronavirus"
    so i neither expected nor experienced any of the side-effects you guys are describing

    The Chinese government created COVID 19 in a lab to assassinate a meth addicted homeless Texan.

    That's because you hang around hospitals looking to suck the toes of women dazed on hard painkillers.

    actually i was specifically refering to areas that were NOT in front of hospitals
    i was refering to people using masks stamped N95 for painting houses/gazebos, spray-painting graffiti/murals, etc etc
    these fucking N95 masks really were fucking everywhere right when 2019 turned into 2020

    i remember Dr Fouchi trying to say something about getting the vaccine had the possibility of preventing you from having symptoms and making you an asymptomatic carrier or some such shit

    got invited at random to take part in a COVID test through the post, so i guess i'll find out if i've come into contact with anyone who's come into contact with anyone who's come into contact with anyone who's come into contact with arg's tongue.
