    As for my question.. General vent about the new polio cases in NYC and if there's any chance of it becoming a "thing" elsewhere or not..
    One reason the duration of protection from childhood polio vaccine is unknown is that there has been no case of polio acquired in the US in over 40 years. I assume similar statistics apply in other countries that have very high rates of full vaccination. With the virus apparently circulating in NY--despite no new clinical cases other than the case of the unvaccinated person who acquired the infection overseas--we may get to find out if protection wanes.

    Of course if a vaccinated person gets polio it may be because the person is severely immunocompromised, not because the vaccination was too long before.

    You're right. I can't find anything referencing where I saw that. Might have been MMR or something else who knows..

    Apparently the polio virus in wastewater has been there since April. The NYS case was genotyped as attenuated vaccine virus from oral vaccine that ciruclated in an unvaccinated community and mutated into a paralytic strain. I believe the NY patient is a Haridi Jew who was exposed out of the country, I'm guessing in the Orthodox community in Israel. There is no religious doctrine against vaccination in Judaism but the ultra Orthodox communities are very isolated and rumors and fake news spreads in them like, well, viruses.

    So despite our best efforts including quadruple vaccinations Ms TBS and I both have da Covid. The vector - 3YO granddaughter that stayed with us last week.
    She tested pos on Monday. Never saw cold symptoms when she was here. Prolly picked it up at her preschool

    We felt fine Monday, got symptoms yesterday but tested neg - pos today.

    It’s been light chills, itchy eyes and stuffy head for me - basic mild headcold

    Ms TBS’ symptoms much worse - prolly because she takes meds that compromise her immune system. Sez she feels a lot better today though

    TBS may find something of value, especially the various post-exposure options. Best to get them early if you qualify. Best wishes.

    I can still remember getting my final booster. I'm old enough that I was given the live (weakened) virus. They don't do that anymore.

    I'm still hoping we don't need a full run of polio vaccines.. i.e. this is just a fluke and it won't spread. Alas if they have them available and tell us to get them I'm in immediately though of course..

    Update - Ms TBS talked this AM to her doc who is working from home because she - wait for it - has Covid.

    She just started course of Paxlovid

    Anybody take this before? Her doc warned her the side effects mimic Covid conditions (fever, aches, headache)

    Wishing the TBS household the best possible outcome here. Immune compromised people will never be 100% past COVID until it's 100% gone off the community spread radar.

    We had nearly the same experience. Ms CE got it from a gathering in NJ and came back testing neg but knowing she'd been exposed bc one of the friends tested pos the next day. She then tested pos 2 days after that.

    We took serious precautions (she basically lived outside or in the closed guest room, and never entered the house without a KN95), but I still got it.

    She has had 4 shots but takes some kind of mild immunosuppressant bc, like TONS of women in their 40s, she has an unspecified autoimmune condition. She was pretty much in bed for 5 days and is only now getting better. On day 2 she got monoclonal antibodies, but we'll never know whether that helped her at all.

    I had my 5th shot 2 days before testing positive, so that didn't help me. Nevertheless I have only had a slight sore throat and cough for 2 days and very mild symptoms for 2 more.

    Here's hoping that our antibodies got a good tune up, bc we're heading to Burning Man next week.

    Felt absolutely great a few days after completing the Paxlovid only to rebound a couple days later. The rebound was much quicker to get through w lighter symptoms.

    My first one was a J&J early on at the local tribal center and it never made it into any records. Then I got 2x Modernas (2nd one knocked me flat for a full day). Then a Pfizer booster. Then I just waltzed into Costco, showed a photo of my card before the previous booster and asked for another one last week. They gave it to me, no questions asked. I don't think the 'system' is really keeping track very carefully.

    And yet another infectious disease crisis to worry about--brain eating amoeba in the midwest. (OK just two cases so far, but that's how covid started.)
