    Seeing that video has made me rethink a lil bit, but i've already been jabbed.
    If you watch enough airplane crashes, you’d rethink about flying too. Likewise enough scary car accidents, you’ll rethink driving.

    Everything comes with risks, these giant corporations could also be greedy and rushing things, but often times benefits will out weigh the risks.

    <edit> Seeing now, that most adverse reactions are suffered by females. Which just fits nicely with patriarchy and other bullshit.
    Be real careful with some of those TikTok and other social media reports of crazy side effects. A bunch of them are from anti-vaxxers.

    I had a bit of a relapse later in the day. I was feeling lethargic, tired and achy. I barely slept for the second night in a row. I still feel a bit achy and low on energy.

    Got my first shot (Pfizer) at a Walgreens yesterday. Felt the initial heat of the poison in my veins

    But after that nothing, until about 6 hours later a bit of localized soreness in my arm. Still there ~20 hours later.

    No other side effects so far.

    Hopefully the second goes well. Scheduled for May 11.

    India continues to get worse.
    Its now at 300k new cases a day!!
    The past 2 days have been worse than the peak day for the USA (307k)
    With Brazil also bad it actually means the 7 day average for the world is now at its peak, over 800k for the first time.

    Deaths are also up - but not as bad as the US was in Jan. Or the world total at that time.

    So while it might see things are improving it is localised, other places are bad or at their worst.
    Australia has reduced incoming flights from India - these flights would be pretty much only returning Australian citizens. But the number arriving with covid and esp new variations is putting a strain on our system. We have had some infections between rooms in quarantine. These are in hotels, not hospitals.

    On the good news, they may move forward with vaccination schedule for over 50s here, so I could be eligible sooner. Thats mostly because there are people not wanting the Astra-Zeneca shot, esp people who the govt are recommending to not get it.

    In the meantime in US, vaccination rate dipped for the 1st time, this is after we open up for all age groups!

    I guess most who want to be vaccinated are already vaccinated? The rest will follow the footsteps of Ted Nugent?

    California has moved from worst to first in cases per capita and deaths per capita. Quite a remarkable achievement.

    This is going to be the challenge going forward. There's probably enough people in the US that actively don't want the vaccine, that we might not actually reach "herd immunity" any time soon.
