    You guys are hard core, man. Cut nickels sound like they'd have at least 4 points. Probably sharp. Tell ya what, we still have em down here, so if your guy finds the science first you post it up and I'll send ya change.

    Don't be too hard on the CDC. Novel virus, brand new vaccine technology, and no data at the time.

    To Vaccinate or Not---The Rat Flu Odyssey Continues

    I keep hearing people talking about having the worst sore throat of their lives with this strain. It makes me wonder it already made its way through my family a month ago. My kid had a scratchy throat, I had cold symptoms but my wife had the worst sore throat of her life and was knocked out, in bed for a few days. No fever but was coughing a lot day and night. She took a bunch of Binax tests, all of which were negative. Went to Urgent Care the third day because her throat was so sore she was having some trouble breathing, and got tested for flu, strep and bronchitis. All negative. Got some steroid and it cleared in a day or two.

    Thoughts? Maybe that was Covid and the tests didn’t pick it up?

    I had a bad sore throat the past few days and tested negative (PCR). There are a lot of other bugs out there.

    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"

    Cool, I'm wrong about something.

    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.
