    It's been six hours since my first shot, and I don't even have a sore arm. If there wasn't a bandaid there, I wouldn't know I had it at all.

    Of course it's early days yet. I might wake up tomorrow feeling like crap.

    Or have a cerebral thrombosis and not wake up at all (I had the AstraZeneca).

    Damn, you got band-aid, I got а piece of cotton wool with alcohol.

    After a second shot of Sputnik V (based on adenovirus as AstraZeneca) I had something of a minor headache which I (retroactively) attributed to something going on with trombosis in the brain.

    Just read in the news, greek designer dies from AstraZeneca, 40 years old, looks fit and healthy on the photo.
    Fit and young people die from COVID19 complications more than before it seems.

    That vaccine reaction is no joke.

    At least the deed is done. Yay
    Sorry to hear you feel awful. What vaccine was that?

    But yay! You got a shot of (my guess) one of the best two vaccines there are.

    Congrats, and over here, AZ is by far the vaccine with fewer cases of side effects; and thrombosis is extremely rare anyway.

    Just be mindful that because you are in the southern hemisphere, the vaccine works different and you'll stick to metal objects instead of metal objects sticking to you.

    And his head will spin in the opposite direction.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    It's not very good at stopping the Delta variant though.

    Apparently football teams are having issues getting everyone vaccinated.

    The San Francisco 49ers, however, did provide a very telling picture of their own COVID vaccination efforts, stating that as of this week, 53 of their 91-man roster is now fully vaccinated and another five players are awaiting their second dose of the vaccine. And the other 33 players? Head coach Kyle Shanahan said the goal is to get another 20 players on board in the next 40 days. That would clear the 85 percent vaccination rate that teams are shooting for in the hopes of relaxing their COVID protocols at the start of training camp.

    With such a controlled situation, I think that any players with confirmed covid infection and with antibodies/t-cells should count as a vaccination. These guys are ACTIVE in a way that many of us have not been in years if ever. A sensible person would seriously cut back on activity after vaccination to almost eliminate the the myocarditis risk . But if these guys do that they may get cut from the team.

    Asking for a covid antibody bearing player to take more risk with almost no upside is not fair to the social contract.

    Every parent who decided to not have their 12-15 year old vaccinated based on these reports is a war criminal.

    Is the body making a very rare and unfortunate antibody that somehow effects the heart or that looks like something on the heart that is then attacked?

    https://mynorthwest.com/2933762/cdc-...covid-vaccine/

    Can this be determined before hand that it may happen in specific people?
