LaPaz Covid shots?
« on: January 29, 2021, 04:11:22 pm »
Has anyone gotten their covid shot at Parker or Quartzsite?
We're scheduled to get ours in Salome next  Wed. and am curious how it went.

    I don't know who is running the program or should I say not running it. Lake Havasu City has none.

    Getting a covid shot?  Dibs on your guns.

    I know a few people that got them - said it was no big deal.
    They were all either here in Maricopa County or in Texas.  Said it was a real smooth, very organized event.  No pain in the shot then wait for a reaction while someone schedules your #2 shot.  The ones that have been back for #2 said the same was the same song just second verse.

    And they are still alive.
    Still have their guns.
    Didn't turn crazy and start supporting socialist agendas.

    It's a shot just like any other.  The only unique part of it is the scarcity that has created the roll out schedule where you have to jump through hoops.
    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we, as a society, lose that affinity, we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    I wouldn’t trust that shit. I am suspecting something in the vaccine, maybe something time delayed...
    My wife said it makes her think of the AMC show The Walking Dead, where they discovered “we all have it”.

    I’ve made it a year without getting covid, even with close contact of two positive folks months ago. Nope, not me.

     A close friend of ours who works in a hospital to continue working she got the vaccine.

    She got the shot and almost immediately started feeling bad. She hasn't been able to work for three days now due to being lathargic, headaches, nausea, abdominal pains and body aches. 

    For me I just don't trust it,  I don't see a benefit for a vaccine that still requires you to wear a mask, social distance and you may still get covid plus you can not sue them if it kills you or causes you harm. This is all to stop a sickness that 90% of the people do not even have symptoms. Only a few of the remaining 10% will die from it and in most of those cases they were dyeing anyway.

    Proper treatment is lowering those numbers everyday.

    Reporting back: We did get the shot here in Salome. Except for a sore arm for a day, no side effects. Nada

    That’s how I feel about it.
    This vaccine is still in the experimental phase, it is not an approved vaccine.
    I have no desire to put an experimental biological agent in my body. However, I will be forced to get it if I want to continue working. I’m going to put it off as long as possible though.

    My Mother-In-Law, who lives in another state, got the first dose of one of the vaccines.  She is over 80 and has asthma.  She started showing an allergic reaction, got a shot of antihistamines and went home.  She later took a Benadryl when the symptoms came back later.  Her doctor is telling her not to get the second shot now.

    The mRNA vaccines are only experimental because the FDA would not approve one before this because they were new technology.  Kind of a Catch-22.  They are most likely safe, because all the research done on this tech before has shown no long term side effects on animals.  The next one coming down the pipeline uses a genetically modified cold virus to trigger an immune response.  We have been capable of making one of these for many years, but the FDA put a hold on them through fear and bureaucratic inertia.

    All that being said, I will probably wait until I have to take one of the vaccines, and chose the one with the fewest adverse reactions, hopefully that takes only one dose.

    My 86 year old father, as well as my 65 year old sister and her husband have gotten both shots with nothing more than a sore spot on their arms.
    Some people will have reaction, even with well established vaccines.

    Why would you not get tested for antibodies to the virus before taking a vaccine?  If you have antibodies what's the point?  If you don't perhaps you are part of the relatively large group of people who appear to be resistant to the infection.  In any event, there doesn't seem to be an upside to injecting yourself with an experimental vaccine unless you feel its absolutely necessary.   :coffee

    The antibodies are only present for about 3 mos.  I've had Covid twice and still tested negative for antibodies.  Doc lady told me she would be surprised if the test came back positive.  She was right.

    I think what you and "Doc lady" meant to say was the antibodies tested for came back negative.  You may be more susceptible than most and may well have had a mutated variant the second time around.  Testing for what we are calling Covid 19 is also still in its experimental phase and lots will be learned over the next few years.  The key for us, individually, is to stay up to date on what the current state of actual knowledge is a sort for relevance to our own situation.  The macro data still tells us that the survival rate for people contracting "the virus" is still a higher percentage than the rate of people people who have received one or more of the available vaccines so far.   :coffee

    ^^^Correct^^^

    First time was a doozey.
    Second time the University sent our daughter home with it.  We all spent a weekend watching movies.  No big deal.

    Hard pass. No vaccine BS for me.

    I can't trust the Government to keep us safe or safeguard an election... I won't trust them on a flu and a stupid vaccine whipped up in months.

    I'll take my chances. I have a strong immune system and if something kills me, well it'll suck but what can I do... I haven't been sick in years. Ain't gonna worry about it.

    With that in mind one has to wonder how a vaccine will work in developing antibodies when the actual sickness wont???

    If you truly were sick (symptomatic) with Covid, you had antibodies for a period of time, and more importantly, your immune system would "remember" and react to future exposure to Covid.  I'm guessing that they diagnosed you with Covid when you had something else, as it would be highly unlikely you would get the same viral infection twice in one year, yet have no antibodies, and both medical facilities & state governments get more money for each Covid case.

    If you don't develop antibodies as a result of exposure to an illness, you wouldn't recover from it.

    I do know 3 people who have had it twice. Pos test and symptoms. Fortunately they are the ones with mild symptoms. I live with a nurse, and hang out with doctors and they are all scratching their heads saying wtf. This shot isn’t following the Normal rules. One of the 3 was one of the docs.
    No idea. But I’m still not going to live in fear, or put an experimental biological agent in my body. (Nor would they)

    What I understand is that this is some sort of ground breaking tech that actually teaches your body to fight viruses that reproduce in the RNA instead of full strand DNA.  The first shot is genetically modifying your body.  Then the second shot is the dead virus for your body t attack.  It's crazy weird science and I'm not sure how it all works.

    Yep. Experimental, and everyone who takes it has signed themselves up for a medical trial.

    Got the second shot yesterday.
    While waiting in line my wife was chatting with another woman. It turns out she was from California, She crossed at Parker and drove down to Salome to get the shot.

    That ticked me off. Why in hell should we use our assets on Californians.

    But on the other hand, a large number of people getting the shots were snowbirds. 

    So when the 5 PM news tells us how many of us have been vaccinated they are full of s--t.
