Regarding the vaccine. My wife is 53 (she is a pharmacist) has had both shots of the Moderna vaccine, without issue. She recently had 5 co-workers all get the second shot of Moderna on the same day, the next day 4 of the co-workers were too sick to work.

I agree with Karl, unless you are at risk, I would not get the vaccine. My wife got the vaccine because she was concerned it would be mandated for health care workers, she wanted to avoid the rush. I urged she not get the vaccine and told her you are a participating in a phase III safety trial.

My 77 year old father had Covid, took 2 to 3 weeks to fully recover, had a mild headache, fatigue and his taste was screwed up (hot foods were amplified). He required zero medical intervention, my brother is a doctor who lives close to my father. A guest at my parents house infected my father. My mother was also exposed to the guest and obviously my father, she did not get Covid, tested multiple times.

Both of my parents take the EVMS prophylaxis. I assume my mother is immune.

Based on all this information, no way in hell am I taking a vaccine with zero long term safety trials. Especially when I have a family member who is immune and my 77 year old father survived without medical intervention and I am healthier than him. They do not know if the vaccine prevents you from getting Covid or transmitting it, it may lessen the severity.

If there is an 80% chance I have reaction so severe that I cannot work, F**k that. I will take my chances.
