    Oh I’m glad she got it. I figure I still have some antibodies is all.

    • Company in Rochester, Minnesota developing oral COVID-19 vaccine

      Vyriad, a scientific research lab based in Rochester, Minnesota, started working on a COVID-19 vaccine early last year and lab testing shows its delivery method and properties could give people immunity to the virus.

      Vyriad typically studies viruses as a way to fight against cancer, but in early 2020 when researchers first started looking into a COVID-19 vaccine, CEO Dr. Stephen Russell was eager to jump on board.
      Because the vaccine would enter the body in the same way as the virus, through the nose and mouth, researchers think it could be even more effective than when the vaccine is administered through the bloodstream. Dr. Russell says this type of vaccine is also very adaptable, so it could be used to fight against mutations as scientists learn more about them.

      Vyriad has done lab testing on the virus, but is currently looking to partner with a larger drug company to create the quantity needed for clinical testing and mass production. Dr. Russell says he sees an oral vaccine as something that will be used further into the future.

                Second dose for me tomorrow. First dose had no side effects, but I’m expecting some this time.

                  Just a sore arm today. I've heard the 2nd one can be more bothersome.

                    Completely anecdotal per my daughter: first shot made her tired for 3 hours, second shot made her feel flu-like for 3 days.

                    The USG is telling employees to schedule their shots for Fridays because they assume they will be useless the next few days.

                    • I think I heard the GF say that the Union told her to take the next day off after her second shot. With her below average immune system I expect her to not do well with it for a couple of days.

                      • So my otherwise uber-healthy, athletic, 18-year-old second cousin just got out of an intensive round of testing at Johns Hopkins. She's had some undiagnosed neurological disorder for nearly a year, and has been wheelchair-bound since May. Their diagnosis is that she's one of these:

                        Just like the flu, right?

                        The good news is that they do believe she will be able to walk again some day with proper PT and OT.

                        Keep the masks on, folks!
                        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                          She got this from Covid and not the vax or the vax itself??

                          • Well, we didn't have the vaccine last may, so I'd guess it is not vaccine-related.
