    “Is that light at the end of the tunnel another train?"

    Nice review of the Covid sports year at one (non-hockey) mega-school that nonetheless should resonate with many.

For decades now I've had annual flu shots so adding another, as recommended, would be just a minor inconvenience.
    This is why I wouldn't laminate any vaccine card. You are likely to need upgrades down the road. Covid will be with us for quite some time, according to the experts. We will need to get used to a changed social health environment.

    I think that what the scientific/medical community is very worried about is that if the virus is allowed to rage through the population indefinitely, eventually a variant could emerge that will make what we've seen to date look like Santa Claus. If a new variant DOES start killing 20 year olds or causing irreversible damage to their lungs, or if a variant is not stopped by one or more of our current vaccines, then what? At that point, TTT's life is once again impacted whether he wants it to be or not. The US first declared victory over this thing more than half a million deaths ago. It could be like Michael Myers in Halloween where you have to kill it a bunch of times.

    My wife is hoping for the later. I was wondering why my shot was blue and the wife's and daughter's were clear. Where's my old buddy Goldie? I need a hug.

At that point if you haven't gotten a shot that's your own fault and I'm not shutting my life down any more because you want to be ignorant.
    How did the race go last night?

    Honestly, good for you, nice work.

    On the vaccine passport, after thinking and listening to the general public's opinions, I am 100% opposed to it, but am very willing to have a nice discussion on it.
    I feel like the concept of a vaccine passport has gotten needlessly politicized. All it seems like, to me, is a more organized/less piecemeal way for people to show that they've been vaccinated or have otherwise recently tested negative. We're already doing that stuff now by requiring negative tests for certain things -- the vaccine passport is just easier bookkeeping. At least that's how I see it.

    I also think that who really gives a crap about the amount of positive tests at this point? Most at risk people are vaccinated by now, so if they get it, it will not over-run hospital capacity and lead to death, which was the driving force to flatten the curve.

    Second shot coming this afternoon. "Team Pfizer". A little fatigue after the first, but no big deal.

    My wife and I got the Moderna shots. First shot no issues for me some mild fatigue for my wife. 2nd shot my wife had all kinds of issues for 2 days: headaches, nausea, dizziness, muscle aches and fatigue (slept most of the time). Slowly recovered on the 3rd and 4th day. I was OK the first day after the shot but developed some fatigue and muscle aches the 2nd day. By the 4th day I had no further issues.

    No issues with first shot other than sore arm and mild headache. 1 day of body aches after second shot, then no issues.

    I had my second shot exactly two months ago tomorrow and have had no ill effects. And same for everyone I've spoken to about it.

    I have been fully vaccinated for a month now and I am showing no ill effects. It is true that there are effects after the second shot. Here is how my family looked at the effects. If you have minimal effects after the second shot covid probably would have just knocked you down for a week. If you have more serious effects there is a good chance you would have had serious issues had you not been vaccinated and caught the virus. Food for thought.
