Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Aye Cinq, it's all about balance I think but I don't mind admitting I'm scared of catching it! I'm in my mid 70's and the thought of catching this scourge does frighten me, especially the thought of Long Covid if I were fortunate enough to survive the main event. However I'm much more frightened that my wife gets it as, whilst not a "sickly" person, her health is not as good as mine and she only just survived pneumonia a couple of years ago following a bout of Flue "A".

Notwithstanding these issues we've decided that we just have to live our lives so we go walks together, Mrs J still has her coffee mornings with her pals and I drop in on my garage pals for a cup of tea and a chat from time to time. We meet regularly with family members and childmind a couple of days a week on average. We wear masks in shops and anywhere else we feel appropriate - as is still legally required here in Scotland - but not when just walking down the street or on our walks.

We are retired so can minimize risks as we perceive them but those still in the world of work don't have that "luxury" - my boy's doing their supermarket delivery runs being a very good illustration - and also the world of work has to go on for the good of all and the country. I don't have the answer to this but, for sure, we have to get back to productive working especially considering the labour shortages - haulage drivers, horticultural workers, etc (lets leave the health and care sector out of this particular particular argument, sympathetic as I am to their plight).

I'm considerably less than impressed by the way the authorities have handled things and by the obscene amounts of money spent, quite some proportion of which seems to have been very poorly allocated. However I'm much more upset just now by the appalling events playing out in Afghanistan. Of course it's easy for me to criticize from my position as an outsider but our seemingly calous abandonment of people who have helped trying to bring a humane and reasonable standard of living to their fellow citizens and in the process reduce the risk of terrorism to us in the west is requiring me to find words I don't posses and fills me with a deep sadness.
Thanks murphyv310 thanked for this post

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Just received word for my booster jag vaccine. No surprises there, but time has just flew past. Iíve also received my flu jag.

Iím hearing that if you were unlucky enough to catch both COVID and the flu, that would very bad indeed.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

We both had flu jabs on 18th September.
Mrs C has her 3rd Covid jab next Saturday(23rd Oct), which will be just over 6-months since her 2nd jab. She got the text to book her 3rd last Sunday, but didn't book it until Wednesday, so if she actually clicked straight away it could have been done yesterday, which would have been exactly 6-months since the 2nd.

My jabs have been 5-weeks after hers, so I expect to get a text for mine around 14th November.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

My first jab was as most folks say - down a bit for 24 hours. Nothing much.
My second jab had me feeling quite ill for a week with regular flare ups for another month. Frankly Im in no rush to repeat that. I had the lurgy in 2020 and the second jab felt like a repeat performance.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

I'm 65, and all I had to deal with is a sore arm for a day, or two. Big deal,...I do not know what all the HYPE is about,...! Perhaps 'wimps'?

Same age as I. I never feel anything apart from the initial prick from the needle. But people are all different, itís just their makeup, how their system handles/deals with vaccine when injected into their body. Some, all be it a very small percentage, have quite a bad reaction. Itís still better receiving the vaccine than not. But some people just donít see the wood for the trees. Thatís a whole different story. The power of social media is a multi tool with some using it for serious/bad use. Blethered on there a bitÖ.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

My first jab gave me a very stiff muscle, made worse by the second jab. Last jab was 21st April, muscle still sore, restricted movement, painful if taken too far. Am told, it will recover, might be some time.
Now booked for booster and flu jabs this Friday, there will be tears. Wimp.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

I didn't even feel my first jab, jsut got "that's you" before I knew it. Second jab was pretty painful, think she must have been in a bad mood.

After the first, the next evening I had aches in my neck and shoulders, very tired and went to bed early. Second one had no side effects at all.


Seems to be random for everyone I've spoken to.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

My workmate has an over-active immune system and she struggles to maintain an adequate blood titre of vitamin D. She's been tested positive for Coof antibodies and T cells so she's got the full weaponry. But she's also been told the vaccines could make her very ill indeed. No kidding! When my boss and I had our second jabs, she was coming down with symptoms just from the fragments we were shedding.

It's really not a simple "get jabbed get safe", though in most cases the vaccine does make sense.

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

I know about these things, I'm a registered nurse in the state of Colorado,...
Folks that have allergies and compromised health could very well have difficulties with any vaccine, especially one for a virus as deadly as COVID.
Everyone will have some inflammatory response effects, locally (injection site), or systemically (regional, like your arm, or 'all over' kind of stuff), THAT is how the vaccine gets the job done.
Yup, my arm was quite sore for a day after each injection, but ANY injection will make your arm sore. I did find that the Moderna injections that I received hurt a bit more than that, but it was not 'bad', and beat the hell outta getting deathly ill with COVID and possibly dying!
If at all possible, get vaccinated,...and if you are worried or undecided, please talk to your doctor, or a trusted health professional that can give you good advice!
I'm REALLY tired of living in a pandemic!

Well you've given me a good laugh.

Where do we start, Vitamin D is not a titre. we all have T cells. Covid vaccines donít cause shedding. If she has covid antibodies then the implication is she has had covid and therefore the vaccine should cause her no problems.

Iím sure I remember you once claiming you were as qualified as a doctor 🤦

Re: Coronavirus - The Thread :(

Vaccine shedding, one of the classic anti-vax/disinformation myths.

Vaccine shedding only occurs in live attenuated virus vaccines.

None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain live SARS-CoV-2.

The nasal spray flu vaccine has been known to shed, as well as Chickenpox and Polio vaccines, as they carry weakened but live versions of the virus. COVID-19 vaccines cannot be shed.
