If you are infected, and it's early, you should be able to get an antibody cocktail now. This looks like it really helps, and it gives you about three months of passive immunity. It's not cheap, but the government pays for it, so it should be free for patients.

It's FAR FAR cheaper than them paying for a month in the ICU.

And yes, your sister had Covid-19. Loss of taste and smell is a very common symptom. And it's almost impossible to live with somebody infected and not get infected yourself. That includes kids, parents, and grandparents.

What you describe is very common. The mRNA vaccines were Phase 3 tested with three week and four week intervals, so that's how they are being delivered. Not to say that other intervals would not work fine, as long as they were at least three weeks. In the UK, I think they are giving Pfizer 2nd shots at 12 weeks just to get more folks partial protection quicker. Mine was at 5 weeks because they ran out of Moderna locally from the Big Freeze in Texas.

Nobody "feels it". Everybody has to wait 15 minutes, and gets a little card. Don't lose it: It's good for a year of free donuts at Krispy Kreme!

Iím scheduled for Pfizer poke #2 Wednesday morning. But we donít have a Krispy Kreme within the state, as far as I know. Probably racism of some kind, causing donut suppression.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

My wife had her Pfizer #2 on Saturday. No side effects, but she does feel a little tired. That is not unusual for her, though.

You get just one free donut per day. Of course, if you buy a dozen every time you go in for your free one, that's on you. I'm lucky: I moved 45 miles away from San Diego's KK several years ago. Two of our rentals we used to live in are within 3 miles.

It might be of passing interest that Moderna had their vaccine ready to go two days after China released the data on Covid. I was reading the new Reason magazine and they really worked over the Covid thing as well as the FDA. Pretty interesting.
