    Guy I worked with on 1/5 tested positive 1/7. Two weeks off from work for me. Hopefully I can get tested Monday. No symptoms so far.

    I knew this case was going to blow up... I’m not convinced it’s not vaccine related. I am convinced it’s going to be exceedingly rare and potentially due to an underlying issue that went undetected.

    18.9 million people got the shot so far? Even if this turns out to be true, I’ll take my chances

    Yeah usually some inflammatory event triggers itp, but his immune system was primed for it.

    As has so far uniformly been the case with these rare vaccine reactions, if you're worried about ________ as a result of the vaccine, then you DEFINITELY don't want covid. Many, many more known cases of itp, including ICH/death, arising in covid cases.

    Are you guys testing for any and every covid symptom? Pregnant wife is tired and congested. Is that test worthy? Don't want to be reckless but also don't want to test constantly for no reason.

    It doesn't take much for me to order a test. If I were her doctor, I'd order one if those are new symptoms, even with fairly low suspicion. Worth a call to her provider

    Texas has pregnancy as a qualifier for getting the vaccine. Saw a few comments ITT that getting it has been recommended by doctors of users here. Is that the case throughout the entire term? My wife is just out of the first trimester. We'll ask at her appointment in a couple of weeks, but I was curious if anyone has come across any info there

    1 in 4 million (hypothetical if even related, probably not) chance of dying to the vaccine vs 1 in 100 chance of dying to Covid roughly based on his age/sex

    A few unquantifiable factors here:
    1) speed of distribution and application of vaccine.
    2) impact of English variant
    3) impact of SA variant
    4) when will the 24-45 age groups get the vaccine? They are driving the high case numbers and are not near the top of the priority list.

    I remember back in the spring doctors from another country (I think it was France) were saying DO NOT take ibuprofen if you had Covid. They said to stick to Tylenol. Is that still a thing?

    seems to be numerous advantages over nasal beyond being less invasive. Would there be any difference in lab turnaround on results?

    “The difference between the two is that saliva can pick up that COVID-19 protein one or two days earlier, so the thought there is we can use that to reduce spread,” Miller says.

    “With this test, you can go back to that sample and retest it. Unlike the nasal swab which would require getting another sample from the patient.”

    I had the saliva test in early November. While comfortable, it takes a while to spit the required volume into the container.

    Do we have any sense of whether the rapid tests would also pick up the B-117 and SA strains?

    I don’t know the volume, but the lady instructed me “See this line here? Whatever you do, don’t go over the line”. So when you spit into the container, most of it is foam, and the foam goes over the line after a couple of spits. So you have to wait for all the foam to disappear to see how much spit there is. Then repeat. It took me about 30 minutes.

    Nurse friend mine that got his second vaccine dose two days ago says the second one had more mild effects than the first. First time around arm was very sore for 24 hours. Second time no arm soreness, but had a low fever of 99 degrees that he killed with Tylenol and that was it. I think everyone’s vaccine experience is going to be unique to them and if you’re worried about feeling shitty for 24 hours, consider catching Covid and possibly feeling that way for days (not to mention long term effects and that whole pesky hospitalization risk thing/death thing)

    I got the first of 2 doses of the Pfizer vaccine last night. Definitely feeling side effects today. Not debilitating but feeling the fatigue, mild muscle aches and moderate soreness at injection point (no fever).

    pperc you hear anything negative/positive about any of the vaccines in HIV patients or PrEP patients? Our system’s screening form has an individual warning question about it, but from what I’ve read it’s just because it’s poorly studied?

    I haven’t. I believe these patients were/are being studied but I haven’t seen data either way.
