I am done with masks and will not spend the rest of my life with a mask on. I don't care what any progressives think about it. It's not going to happen. I think it's a form of psychological abuse to expect that out of an entire planet, to expect kids in masks at school all day long, forever? For the next 100 years? No. Just no.  I will not comply. My kids will not comply.  I'll take natural selection and take my chances.

You do realize doing that would just make the immune system less able to defend itself over time and we'd end up with the same problem. If you don't use it, you're going to lose it. It's the same reason people in third world countries tend to have much more hardy immune systems that can withstand the garbage they have to eat and drink compared to modern countries.  In the end, natural selection is going to win out at least until we get the technology to play God and re-write the rules, which will come in time.

Just wait for what we are in store for in the future :D. Animal agriculture has gotten so out of control that we are breeding super bugs within their populations that are going to be incredibly resistant to so many anti-biotics. We pump our livestock full of drugs and chemicals so recklessly because of our ravenous and unnecessary addiction to meat, it's going to come back to bite us.

The universe has a nice way of balancing things out though ;)

I went for my second jab today, only to be told that they weren't administering the Pfizer version (that was the one I had for my first jab, and apparently it's not a good idea to mix them) and that I'd have to come back on Monday. 

Couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery, honestly...

Got the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine 2 days ago. Was fine that day except for pain at the deltoid. Woke up yesterday with more pain but otherwise fine the next morning. 

Fast forward to yesterday afternoon, started feeling worse and worse as if I got hit by a truck. Whole body aching, moderate headache, a little fever, extremely dizzy, nausea, diarrhea. Hadn't been this sick in years. The strongest side effects lasted around 8 hours (until 2am) and started to diminish but my body was still in pain and I had bouts of nausea and diarrhea throughout the night. 

Woke up today feeling better although my stomach still hurts and I'm not completely recovered. 

Not fun at all. Really not looking forward to the second dose, which most people say is usually the tough one...

I had similar effects after my second dose of Pfizer. My first just gave me a mild headache and lethargy for a day. For the second dose, I couldn't get out of bed for 24 hours. I didn't have nausea and diarrhea, but I had all the other symptoms plus a gnarly fever through the night with nightmares.

@Farnaby It might not be as bad as you expect. I took SInovac (since it was the only one available at the time) and everyone who took it had a mild 1st dose and an awful 2nd one. The opposite happened to me-my first dose was a bit of a shitshow and the second one was mild. I've never heard of people having horrible side effects for both doses regardless of vaccine brand. As far as I've seen, it's either mild->shitty or shitty->mild.

As far as I know there's no known correlation between the two. A lot of young people have non-existent/mild symptoms when they get Covid and a pretty strong reaction to the vaccine. That being said, I'm willing to feel like shit for a few days after the vaccine and not run the risk of getting seriously sick of Covid, even if that risk is really low in my age group.

Didn't want to scare people. I still think that looking at the science and data, it's worth to take the vaccine.

Only wanted to share that not everyone feels "just a little fatigued" after the vaccine. Most people I know felt pretty awful after their 2nd jab, in my case it happened after the 1st one. I'm also a bit skeptical towards the accuracy of the data around side-effects. I can see how many people won't bother oficially reporting their side effects and there may be more people suffering them than we think. However a counter-argument to this is that people who have an adverse reaction to the vaccine are more likely to talk about it than people who were fine.

I feel ya. Let's hope it was worth it at least.

Thank you! That's what I like to believe, I hope you're right. I've read some reports from people who had a pretty awful reaction to both doses though. I'll keep you updated lol

Got the johnson vaccine a week or two ago. M-rna scares me. Flu-like side effects for 2 days, fever fatigue headaches etc. Weird thing was that an hour after the vaccine (before any other side effects) I had a pinching tightness in my left chest (same side as shot) that lasted for a few hours. Then it came again more mildly for two days after in the evening. Now I feel totally find other than I never used to get headaches EVER and now I have gotten a few since the side effects ended.

2 of my family members have now had strokes fairly soon after getting the vaccine. Both had the Pfizer or whatever the 2-round option is. They are 70+ years old female so it's probably not even worth making the connection at that age but just thought I'd share. Again, they're 70+ years...

My dad recently had a small stroke and he hasn't taken the vaccine 🤪

If there is no such correlation then the vaccine does not work.

Ouch. Sorry to hear that Farnaby. You didn't get lucky with this one.

I also got my 1st shot of the Pfizer vaccine recently....  it was exactly 7 days ago.

I got a sore arm for 2 days, and very very mild headache few hours after the shot. No fever. But my nose has been running slightly since then and my throat is a tad painful. Seems like my tonsils are a bit inflated. Also I've got a bit of a wet cough.

So perhaps you'll have also these extra symptoms popping up. 

One must say- this Covid virus is a strange one. The variety of potential effect is astonishing.

Thanks for the info:D

I'm now totally unexcited about that second dose. And shitting my pants like Fanarby. Hahaha

If it helps, I didn't feel it at all.

I was waiting for the doctor to sting me and he told me it was already done.

He said that after administrating 25 000 vaccines in the last few months , he's reached mastery in the craft. ^_^

Hopefully I don't go through a nightmare.

Just thinking about the needle gives me heart attack.

I kinda get the same way with anxiety before an injection or having blood drawn. The needles they use for these vaccines are tiny, though. Your thoughts of the needle are way worse than the actual thing.

I agree, last time I had blood drawn, realized I was freaking out but after it was over, it didn't feel it was that bad. The mind turns a cat into a lion.
