    Not sure. Maybe?

    I was supposed to go see Dead & Company tonight, but they canceled the show a couple weeks ago because FL wasn't mandating vaccines/negative tests. Guess it's too late to uncancel :/

    Seeing Zac Brown Band on Sunday and I don't think they've said anything either way

    I ended up getting covid two days after I got my booster last week (obv must have already had it but wasn’t symptomatic until two days after). Gotta say I’m very thankful for being vaccinated because I had a couple of tough days with body aches, headaches, and at times a little shortness of breath (not too much on that). If I was unvaccinated it could have been pretty damn rough. Almost through it. Slight cough still and starting to get my taste/smell back.

    and of course my unvaccinated loony tunes father told me I should ask my doctor for ivermectin…..

    Surprised my fiancée didn’t get sick tho (and has tested negative). We’ve been staying as separate as possible in our one bedroom apt and she’s been wearing an n95 whenever home. Guess we are the poster children for why masks/vaccines work.

    and since I got it, and have three shots, does that mean I’m going to have super human immunity now lol

    I don’t know about superhuman but I will say once you clear up, I am very comfortable letting you watch my toddler. So are you free next Friday? Pay is ok but is supplemented by world class beer and okay bbq.

    Phenotypes are descriptive categorizations, that is "these t-cells have these proteins on their surface or shape or whatever, and we've seen them do these functions, so we label them based on these phenotypes." Like hey that pea plant has curly leaves and it grows tall, so lets name it tall curly pea plant. Immunological categorizations fucking suck, and are mostly just some letters (that may or may not be related to something functional) and a couple numbers (which are basically 99% of the time just in order of when it was discovery). They are often categorized by collections of these labels, CD8 CD26 t helper cells (i did it wrong here but whatever, you get the idea). Sucks, but thats how these get categorized a lot of the time.

    Before infection, you have some kind of inactivated, "blank slate," differentiated-up-to-a-point t cells that get called "naive." After infection, these are activated, and/or divide, and differentiate, becoming specialized, that is, activate genes (and sometimes shuffle them around) to take on this threat, and is no longer designated as "naive," and they may change appearance to reflect that

    After most infections, you'd expect to see different amounts of these different specialists and these cells acting some different ways, but evidently these cells/behaviors may be missing if these preprints pass muster. May be something covid is doing to suppress, maybe something's up with the treatments, may be covid entering a lysogenic phase or whatever.

    I know pretty much anyone can qualify in some way for the booster after 6 months but have they released a timeframe for people that don’t?

    Just was wondering how big of a difference it would be.

    No bc the CDC/ FDA said the data wasn't conclusive enough for boosters for all. So using one of the exemptions presently available is the only way to get one for the foreseeable future.

    Makes sense. I wasn’t sure if they thought for the “general population” it’d be more of an annual thing like a flu shot.

    I got my 2nd dose 4/23 so I’m planning on doing the booster at the end of the month/early November.

    Next week is 8 months post-Moderna for me. At what point do I just go in and load up some excuses to get a booster?

    Not yet, FDA is supposed to be reviewing Moderna booster stuff next week so hopefully you can get one shortly thereafter.

    Can’t wait for them to roll that out by age group again so I technically won’t qualify until it’s been a solid 12 months. Just the most idiotic rollout plan imaginable.

    Going to try to get boosted this weekend (Moderna). See if wife wants to try as well.

    We’re overweight enough (barely), fonrtline-ish workers, and polite so I’m hoping they just allow it

    No need for alarm but something to keep an eye on



    More such reinfections would first need to be identified to know if this is the case.

    “We don’t know how widespread the phenomenon is right now, but it implies that the virus is definitely going to be fine in terms of staying in circulation in the population,” given how much this strain, also called a sublineage, differs from the delta variant, he said.

    The sublineage, AY.26, has 31 genetic differences from delta, including on the spike protein, the part of the virus targeted by vaccines, he said. It is this genetic variety that especially concerns him.

    “My concern is that there’s a scientific rationale for this being indicative of a bigger problem,” said Pandori, whose lab in August 2020 reported the first known case of COVID-19 reinfection in North America.

    That bigger problem is the possibility of increasing numbers of reinfections as well as so-called breakthrough cases in vaccinated individuals.
