    Is there a theory about why Blacks and Latinos are more likely to die from Covid? Saw the stats for DC recently and something like 75% of deaths are black and 12% Latino. I realize at the start cases were more common for those groups due to multi family living, essential work, etc but I suspect case distribution has probably balanced more to match the demographics of the population. Not sure why deaths haven’t though

    More likely to live in multi generational housing and also more likely to work in "front line" industries

    Usually poor non-white people die because they often have more underlying medical issues due to poverty/lack of access to healthcare/good groceries, etc. Black mothers are something like several times more likely to die during childbirth than white mothers, COVID discrepancies are likely due to the same reasons.

    There is a theory that if exposure is repeated or extended exposure it leads to more severe cases which would explain household spread and repeated/long term exposure amongst essential workers

    Higher co-morbidities due to lack of access to healthcare, healthy foods, propensity for diabetes, and other socioeconomic factors only add to the factors that are more likely to lead to more, and more severe, cases which have no reason to equalize.

    is there worry with taking pain meds after the vaccine. I don’t fully understand the mechanism and if the immune response is farther downstream that it wouldn’t matter. Like if someone took an NSAID, would it reduce inflammation and thus create less antibodies, or is that now how it works?

    I believe the only concern, which there isn't a lot of data for either, is taking pain meds before getting a vaccine. It's thought that might reduce the body's initial response to working through it like you'd want. I've heard lots of doctors say it's totally fine to take pain meds once you develop side-effects after receiving your shot.

    I'm on day 3 (got my shot Wednesday) and feel great, should be able to do my normal swim this afternoon. Haven't taken any pain meds since yesterday afternoon, they did help tremendously to bring my temp down to where I had more energy and fewer chills and aches.

    Small, largely theoretical concern with muted response if taking NSAIDs (ibuprofen) before or like right at the time of vaccination. Still, if you need something, start with tylenol

    This shits smashes your immune system on the second dose. An NSAID is fine, IMO.

    Congrats man! Didn’t know your wife was pregnant. Harvard put out some good info recently about it, but one thing I found interesting was this:
    • Within hours or days our bodies eliminate mRNA particles used in the vaccine, so these particles are unlikely to reach or cross the placenta.
    • The immunity that a pregnant individual generates from vaccination can cross the placenta, and may help to keep the baby safe after birth.

    Wife is 12 weeks pregnant, she got vaccinated. Her OB provider, who I trust more than about any other doc I've ever met or worked with, also got vaccinated in her first trimester. Fwiw.

    Pregnant patients are higher risk for severe covid.

    Wife got it back in Dec/Jan. We’re due in May and every checkup with OB since the first shot has gone fine. The OB and every doc she works with said the impact of getting covid during pregnancy would be far worse than anything the vaccine could potentially do.

    I believe either Pfizer or Moderna said they were confident it would be at least 6 months and possibly close to a year, however the Phase I/II patients didn't get fully vaccinated until around June or July of last year. I assume this summer they'll see how their antibody levels are and put out a press release.

    At least initially, duration of protection is likely going to come down to chasing variants. Early evidence shows the immune response is robust enough that immunity should last well beyond a year, but doesn't mean much if you're immune to a virus that doesn't exist anymore

    Is there any correlation to your reaction to the vaccine to the amount of antibodies you produced? My dad had bad flu like symptoms just curious if I can breathe a little easier knowing that’s a good sign.

    Given their higher efficacy preventing mild to moderate disease, is it fair to assume that the mRNA vaccines would better protect against "Long Covid" than J&J or AZ ?
