Wife gets her second shot tomorrow. I'm in the next phase in GA if we ever get there.
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.
That explains cases not deaths
the case skew hasn't evened out afaik
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.
Yeah that's my bad. I completely fucked up reading your post
Second shot wrecked my world last night.
shout out to my immune system for kicking into overdrive
pperc and others
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.
Yea that seems to be the current CDC guidance I think.
I was defeated and took a Tylenol last night
How do you feel today?
Still a little achy, but not near as bad as the middle of the night.
also I feel like I won’t get covid in the future which is tight
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.
Has anyone seen any new data on pregnancy and the vaccine? Pregnant wife is eligible to get it soon and I want to make sure I haven't missed anything.
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.
Feeling a mild version of the covid symptoms I had. The wife is too.
Covid infections in first trimester highly associated with miscarriage as well
Got shot two today. Nurse said they were around 30% of people from round one showing up for round two. Lil headache but over all good so far.
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.
Any early research on duration of protection w/ vaccine?
My pregnant wife got her 2nd yesterday. It was recommended by her doc and her dr. brother
Haven’t seen data. It’s hard, we don’t know the true correlates of protection yet.
Seems like my 2nd shot symptoms were less than most but whole upper body is sore af the last 2 nights, nothing else besides that.
Thanks for listening.
I had some muscle/joint soreness and a little bit of fatigue the next day but that was pretty much it. No fever or anything
My mom had the body aches and chills after her second Pfizer shot. My dad had mild soreness after his second shot of Moderna.
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
Dose 2 today, arm soreness similar to dose 1 so far no other symptoms 12 hrs in will report back tomorrow #pfizerlife
Wife got second dose of Moderna yesterday. Arm is super sore, and she's just not feeling too great in general. Hoping she feels better tomorrow.
it’s lack of vitamin d bro
I’m getting chipped next Saturday!
My entire day 2 yesterday was pretty shitty, but felt pretty much back to normal today.
day 2 update as promised. arm soreness mostly gone, energy level slightly lower than normal and a slight headache. but that’s it 10/10 would get again
Good to see more and more getting shots. These next two months should be encouraging as supply continues to increase.
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.
This plus J&J starting up this week have me feeling pretty optimistic. I like that feeling.
Los Angeles County is moving to phase 1b this week. That's good news.
How have the FEMA sites ran out there so far?
Friend tested positive 30 days ago. Spent a week in hospital. Still out of work. Comments yesterday “100 fever. Out of breath often.” Not good.
100 fever 30 days later?!
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 ?
