    Same here. Bad sore throat, cough, fever, congestion since Sat/Sun. 2 neg PCRs. I would have sworn it was Covid. Possibly the flu...

    Canadian nickels really did have points. Twelve of them. I had one in my coin collection when I was a kid.

    This crud seems to be in SLC areas as well. Several people I know have the same.

    I just can't believe it took this long to realize: I only need to carry 4 when I go to Canada. The weight savings alone will be worth it.

    I have a friend in Vancouver who liked to participate in focus groups. In our younger/poorer days I joined him at the ones offering free food (and one time a free beer). He told me that when he attended the 'should there be a $5 coin, and what should it look like?' group, the participants were livid. Like, "if that happens, we'll storm the capitol! ...well, if our pockets weren't so damn heavy"

    Joined the 50+ 4th dose club this weekend.

    CVS has group appointments available now and it is super slick. Once at store no paperwork needs to be completed. All three of us went into a room and walked out 2 minutes later with the shot.

    Summer covid wave has arrived in the midwest. Lots of people positive at wife's office.

    SO doctor wanted her to get 4th dose because of meds she takes that compromise her immune system. She is not 50 but CVS has a slick immune compromised option for her to check during online registration then no additional questions asked.

    12 year old daughter eligible for the man sized 30mcg Pfizer first dose booster on top of her pint sized 10 mcg initial child approved 2 dose series.

    My instinct tells me the shot for me was unnecessary. I did not have any symptoms or test positive when the wife and (probably)daughter had covid in early January or my 19 yo stepson had covid and was down and the fuck out for 2 weeks in late February. I did it because the SO wanted me to get it and I don't see any significant downside.

    Daughter came home from school with stomach cramps but went to soccer tonight. I had the usual sore joints. Very minor sore arm that is now gone at 28 hours post shot.

    This adds Pfizer to our 3 Moderna to broaden our IR as much as possible.

    My 70 year old friend and her 75 year husband are moving from Truckee down to Reno because his Parkinson's is getting worse and worse and their house is a nightmare of stairs. So her daughter flies out to help and promptly is bad covid--not hospitalized, as of yesterday had improved a little on Paxlovid. My friends are still ok but for how long. Everybody with 4 shots. So now my friend instead of getting help moving is taking care of her daughter and her seriously disabled husband who never did anything around the house to begin with.

    Paxlovid rebound is real, unfortunately.

    Covid hospitalizations 50-64..............interpret that however you want. But I bet 90% of the hospitalizations are very near the top end of the age spectrum in this graph.

    I agree with you on this. Just retweeting without bias.

    I did end up getting the shot though. Not sure I could defend the decision to anyone else but I found my own justifications to be good enough reason.

    50-64 does not appear to be the predominant demographic ; that still appears to be elderly...
    hospitalizations in those 18-49 is not-insignificant. it's actually greater than hospitalizations in the 50 - 64 group --
    ( childhood hospitalizations are not insignificant )

    good luck.

    Please get your boosters. skiJ

    It's plastered all over the news that boosters are authorized now for 5-11, but zero details on how to get them or when you will be able to get them.

    Most kids I see getting off the bus keep their masks on walking home. Some don't but nobody cares. Kids get it.

    The two schools my kids are at, elementary and middle in Seattle, are still mostly all masking. Never really stopped when they dropped the mandate. I think a lot of families were keeping it up to ensure they could go on their spring break. Then ba. 2 happened and it would have been foolish to stop then so here we are. We've managed to dodge it so far and my wife works in a hospital so hoping to keep that trend going.

    Masks in stores, etc is maybe 1 in 10 here, but per my friends with kids, it's still a solid majority at schools in the city. Out in the county, it's zero for both. 100% political.
