@Cerridwyn I figure my opportunity will be in the fall sometime.
People just have no concept of the scale of trying to vaccinate 300+ million people. And fucking it up as only 'Murica can fuck things up, as we have seen so far, in comparison to the rest of the world.
I’m certain there will be hordes of self-entitled Karens and Kyles trying to jump the line.
at least not yet, sohmageek. pay attention and talk to your physician closer to when your spot comes up.
and oh- it hurts like hell. worst vaccine i have ever had. one of our staff who did mission work and has had a lot of vaccines before said it was worse than the typhoid one.
but damn, it’s worth it
@Cerridwyn@mike808 we will see. I’m not an antivaxer. I support vaccines. But I am unfortunately one that usually has more severe side effects from vaccines. I had seizures from one part of mmr as a kid so they stopped giving me that part. Ended up with whooping cough as a teen. I got the flu vaccine twice (one they no longer used eggs in it as I have a history of anaphylactic reactions to eggs). So. Until it’s cleared by more than the cdc. It’s not a vaccine for me to get.
@Cerridwyn@mike808@PooltoyWolf I really wish those names hadn’t gotten co-opted that way - it’s so unfair, and so far I haven’t seen any stories where the people acting like entitled assholes were actually named Karen or Kyle! (I am not named Karen, just to be clear - but I do have a friend with that name.)
@Cerridwyn@mike808@PooltoyWolf Well, yeah - my actual name has been a part of some negative things over the years, but not quite so specifically and intensely. The Mikey Life cereal ads weren’t that mean.
@mehcuda67 I don’t care about getting it. I go to Kroger every two weeks and it’s abandoned at like 10 at night. All the staff and I have our masks I admit I’m kinda pissed off at the people I see in there with no mask despite the state wide order and the sign on the door. And no one kicking them out but morons be morons.
I def don’t need a spot in the vaccine queue. Elderly/emergency workers/teachers if they are keeping schools open def do. I never went anywhere in the first place
