    Heading out for Moderna #2 in a few minutes. Looking forward to better cell reception, it didn't take the first time around.

    I've got a question: What exactly is supposed to happen to me when the vax changes my DNA?

    I take Acyclovir whenever I feel a cold sore coming on though I don't feel them much anymore as they've moved up into my sinus. Suppose once the virus reaches my brain I'll develop some sort of madness that will clue me in to an outbreak. Did not notice if I had one from my first shot but like I said I can't feel (or see) them much any more. It's more the overall feeling of being sick which I didn't get from the jab.

    This joke gets even more hilarious every time I hear it.

    Also had no idea so many of you mags had latent herpes. Although, this isn't surprising in hindsight.

    IMO the change would be similar to the way your car changes when you hang a pair of fuzzy dice from the rear view mirror.

    Look at the person who posted above you. Now look at the person who posted after you.....do the math. Statistically one of you has had herpes virus inside your body. Maybe all three of you.

    This does not mean that 50% of people have outbreaks of genital herpes - the story is a lot more complicated than that - and this is not the thread to explain it all.

    But given the herpes virus prevalence in society it's not surprising that any vaccine or illness or medication that affects the immune system could also lead to new or repeat resurgence of latent herpes infection.

    All the stuff I wrote above is talking about "herpes" as known in society (cold sores and genital sores) - medically herpes is a whole family of viruses (like corona viruses is a family)

    Chickenpox is also caused by a herpes virus. Did you have chickenpox as a kid? You got herpes! (medically speaking - not in the common parlance). Younger people today are vaccinated against chickenpox. But if you weren't and you got it the old fashioned way this virus (a herpes virus!) likely lives inside you spinal cord today....I'm not making this up.

    And when the time is right (when your immune system is tired or is busy doing something else) this chickenpox virus decides it has an opportunity to party and comes flying out of retirement to cause shingles. So getting covid could also lead to a shingles outbreak. So could getting a covid vaccine. If a patient or a reporter looked into it without a medical background you can see how they might see the story as "this person got the vaccine - then they had a herpes outbreak! This is gonna get some page views!"

    Those kinds of headlines also give anti-vaxxers a raging boner as evidenced here.
    Do you have a source for the claim that covid vaccine or any other vaccine could lead to a flare up of shingles, other than the Israeli report of 5 immunocompromised women with autoimmune disorders?

If there's some cases and you go several times a week, there's some risk.

    Those countries are also good to watch to see what level of vax plus social distancing controls the disease. E.g. Israel's at 60% vaxxed and has what the US calls severe restrictions and cases are falling by half every week.

    As for a year or two from now... if vax rates are high enough (nobody knows the exact threshold), covid cases should fall off slowly. Cases could fall fast if we're lucky, but we'll probably relax restrictions fast enough to prevent cases from falling fast. With large numbers unvaxxed, there will continue to be local outbreaks, as with measles, whooping cough, etc. Assuming the schools require vax late this year, that will likely be the tipping point if we don't hit it sooner. Those graphs showing the case declines in old folks are very encouraging.
    It's not a personal decision. If you're vaccinated, wear a mask when you around people who aren't or might not be, until told you don't need to by competent scientific experts (I wrote "authority" but that freaks people out).

    One recommendation is the 2 out of 3 rule. Any two of these 3--mask, outdoors, distance--is adequate. This is from Linsey Marr.

    They are actually asking everyone that comes in to put the word out that they have about 1 thousand extra doses for today. They're already out of the fridge so must be used today. No appointments necessary, they don't care where you're from just come get jabbed.

    I hope my county isn't topping out at ~40% vaxed.

    Evidently both HSV-1 and HSV-2 are becoming less common and is mostly found in the 50+ population.

    Just under half, 48 percent, of people aged 14 to 49 have herpes simplex 1, HSV-1, commonly known as the cold sore virus. By age 49, nearly 60 percent of people are infected, the NCHS, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found. In 2000, more than 59 percent of people over 14 had the virus.

    About 12 percent of people aged 14 to 49 have HSV-2, known widely as genital herpes. Only about 7 percent of teenagers are infected, but more than 21 percent of people over 40 are, the survey found.

    What flavor did she get in Jan?

    These vaccines are certainly not foolproof, eh? Best we have though...

    This is an interesting question. My doctor wants me to get a shingles vaccine. But they won't give you the vaccine until 18 days after your second covid-19 19 shot.
    There is no accessable information I can find on the why of that rule.
    There's obviously some data/ concern related to this. But I guess we the masse's don't need to read about it.

    I think this is what pisses me off. My access to information being filtered.

    It was my understanding that the point of vaccination was to reduce the spread and lessen the virulence of the actual disease. If everyone got da Covid as CS claims and no one got very sick it sounds like it is working
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Just had my 2nd shingles vax (shingrix) a few weeks after Pfizer #2. I felt a little worse for a little longer than after the Pfizers. Prob no real info/studies on the timing of the 2 vaxes so "out of an abundance of caution" they put an arbitrary waiting period in place.

    This is what I was thinking. Those of you who have acquaintances that got covid after the vax, where the symptoms less severe? It in no way confers total immunity, but I believe the severity is supposed to dissipate, freeing up our hospitals.

    Without an actual positive test, I'm calling bullshit on most covid stories.

    CDC officially tracking roughly 6000 breakthrough cases where vaccinated individuals became positive outside of the 2-week post second shot window. CDC recognize that 6000 is likely inaccurate (low). Of those 6000, about 29% of those experienced no symptoms, while 7% were hospitalized and 74 people died. That's a 1% death rate although the breakthrough data was not delineated by age so that we can understand whether 1% is higher or lower than historical, non-vaccinated controls. Furthermore, breakthrough may represent cases of higher overall inoculum (initial exposure) which may therefore bias the outcome regardless of vaccination status.

    The good thing about having people actually qualified as MDs is that the general population don't have to become home schooled internet MDs themselves.

    My take-away from this is that 0.008% have been reported infections. I think that's a win and, over time, the number will reduce with more people getting vaccinated and squeeze the virus out through lack of finding a receptive host. While it likely is truly a higher percentage with many, many unreported cases (asymptomatic or very mild cases not tested), it still appears the vaccines are on track for doing what they're intended for.

    Yeah, I think there's little doubt of that. Clinical trial data notwithstanding, the real world data from Israel using Pfizer is trending to a 90% reduction in infection rate comparing unvaccinated to vaccinated. Even if the vaccine didn't reduce mortality or infectivity (which it's believed it does) that's a huge win.

    Just got Pfizer round 2 here in Teton Valley Idaho.

    Seems like we are running out of people who want to be vaccinated here locally. There were way less people this time around.

    This article may explain why- https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2021...-herd-immunity

    • As of April 13, 2021, more than 75 million people in the United States had been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 since December 14, 2020.
    • During the same time, CDC received 5,814 reports of vaccine breakthrough infections from 43 U.S. states and territories.
    • Vaccine breakthrough infections were reported among people of all ages eligible for vaccination.
      • 2,622 (45%) of the reported infections were among people ≥60 years of age.

    • 3,752 (65%) of the people experiencing a breakthrough infection were female.
    • 1,695 (29%) of the vaccine breakthrough infections were reported as asymptomatic.
    • 396 (7%) people with breakthrough infections were known to be hospitalized and 74 (1%) died.
      • Of the 396 hospitalized patients, 133 (34%) were reported as asymptomatic or hospitalized for a reason not related to COVID-19.
      • Of the 74 fatal cases, 9 (12%) were reported as asymptomatic or the patient died due to a cause not related to COVID-19.
      • Hospitalizations and deaths that are not a direct result of COVID-19 are still considered vaccine breakthrough cases if the person was fully vaccinated and subsequently tested positive for COVID-19.
