day 14 still fighting off this crap
Damn dude how sick did you get?
Is there a new booster out that I should be getting?
As of friday yeah but who knows about its availability in different areas
I'm much better, I'd say 80%, thanks!
Fever for a few days, fatigue, sore throat, some bad coughing, and really bad nasal congestion. Diminished sense of taste & smell too.
Glad you’re getting better.
What booster should I ask for?
Im currently signing up for an appointment on Walgreens website and there’s just an option for the updated/seasonal one.
Looks like it’s called Pfizer Comirnaty. Not sure if there’s one for Moderna or not.
Getting my flu and updated covid shot on Friday.
Same on Monday. Moderna man.
Pfizer for me
Getting Covid shot sat and waiting a week for the flu. Looking forward to the additional testicle to go along with the others.
4 covid shots sounds like enough for me
Gotta get a flu shot every year so gonna get the Covid as well. Covid and the flu suck
In what sense?
Playing with fire a bit and waiting until after I run a half marathon in mid-October. Don’t have any plans to be in the office or elsewhere before then, so I’m holding off through training.
Florida energy absolutely oozing from this post. Good luck with your health choices!
Don’t think you need to be bashing anyone boosted twice but that’s just me
Going to Walgreens this morning to get the booster. Hopefully I get the right one!
I have Kaiser and apparently they aren’t accepted at CVS or Walgreens this time around so have to wish till October when they get their supplies in, very disappointing
Is that for anything or just the COVID vaccine?
This is just how people are now. Medical expertise is no match for what morons think "just sounds right"
I'm no doctor but I mean that's not how immunity works.
Trolling or just stupid?
My wife's parents are the same way. "I think we're done with the shots." Well I'm sure covid will care that you had several shots a few years ago. They're in their late 60s and her dad is at risk. Fucking morons
I observed an exchange on twitter the other day where someone was arguing (fairly convincingly) that the pharmacies are *obligated* to bill either insurance or the government for the vaccine and that it's actually illegal for them to bill you individually. Might want to press harder. (I'll see if I can find the info)

Viruses have the highest respect for human attitudes and expectations
Kaiser really hates their patients getting anything from outside Kaiser. Unless Kaiser can’t do it (and that doesn’t include something like vaccines not in stock yet), they’re going to make you pay for it.
please ignore my prior post I'm just frustrated with not feeling well. I'm not anti-vax, I will get covid boosters/flu shots when available. My last one was in July.
Is there still a time I should wait if I just had Covid a month ago to get the new juice?
There's a big social pressure to just be "over it" that is very easy to nudge yourself into "covid isnt a thing i have to account for anymore," so thats understandable. Setting up a shot is a hassle, and covid appears to no longer be wreaking havoc in hospital settings (though the majority of those closed hospitals and clinics arent coming back, so ymmv on local/regional monopolizations of health care).
That said theres no public appetite for lockdowns/masking if and when a shitty dangerous variant pops out so its best to keep updated.
Used to get a $5 or $10 dollar gift card for flu shots. They should bring that back for Covid shots
I’d get a flu shot and then a pub sub with the gift card
I think cvs and Walgreens both also did the same thing. I know at least one of them did
planning on getting both shots next week
Grocery store here does something similar. You get like 10-20 cents off a gallon of gas if you get a flu shot. They started doing it for the Covid vaccine too a couple years ago. Haven’t seen a sign for it lately.
If we want to be real, some of the most important vaccine experts in the world feel like if you are young and healthy and have had your booster series and likely had an infection, that your risk for hospitalization and severe outcomes are extremely low and the benefit of the booster is likely not meaningful. That does say nothing of long covid or just getting sick (the former we don't know if boosters help and the latter they almost certainly do at least for 2-3 months post booster). The areas of the virus that are mutating are not in areas that your T-cell immunity is responding to so you're existing immunity is sufficient to prevent more severe outcomes if you're young and healthy. Elderly or immune compromised should be lining up for these boosters. The only other reason those argue against the "why not, how could it hurt" is if supply is low or the economic burden being placed for low societal benefit as we all know that insurance companies will just pass the cost along to all of us in premiums rather than take a hit on their profit. I also think it probably ignores the potential impact a booster has on reducing transmission but we have no data on that for the new booster.
idk why people are jumping on you for not wanting to get it when you are just recovering from COVID.
I had not updated my spreadsheet of TMB User COVID History, so no hard feelings, kinghill.
I always viewed this as the biggest reason to get a covid and flu shot now, but given quickly covid mutates plus low uptake of the booster means it's probably not all that much.
Feds to offer more free at-hone tests
which almost no one will order
COVID ran through my family early, should we still get the booster and when? Mom and dad have it now. It’s everywhere this year
My local pharmacy hopes to have the new juice next week.
Will get w flu shot like last fall
I’ve already set a reminder to order them. Last year, I copied the addresses from Christmas cards and plugged them in so my friends and family got covid tests. A lot of them were surprised to receive them, but most ended up using the tests eventually and thanked me for saving them money.
i’ve been paying ~$40 for packs of 5 tests off Amazon so I welcome more free tests
I definitely prefer free to $10 a test.
I’m on day 5 and it suuuucks. After three days of fever it finally broke, so I thought, then it’s just randomly coming back at certain times of day.
