    Yeah, I know a bunch of people who got genuinely sick. A woman I work with has bad asthma, and the combination kept her out for a month. So I definitely wouldn't want to get Covid, just a positive test and a week off.
    I caught Covid in November of 2020. Was out of work for a month, although actually sick for only 9 days.could not return to work til I tested negative...took 5 tests. But those 9 days royally sucked. I still suffer random bouts of fatigue.

    Same here. I know it's bound to happen, but testing positive after this long without it would be like losing a video game on the final boss level with no save point.
    I think I got a very mild case right at the beginning - back when tests were really hard to get - with a slight fever for about an hour and a cough for a ocuple of days. Since then, Everyone I work with has come down with it, or at least tested positive and had to take five days off. That's what I want - not to get sick, just to get a positive test - but no luck.

    The quickest way to be sure the government response will be inadequate. They'll only care once it starts spreading more widely in the general population.
    Yep. Any LGBT, female, bipoc, disabled person... That pretty much means, "Sucks to be you." I do have hope that the Biden response will be light-years better than Reagan's was, however. Evil man.

    I don't want to start a new thread, but WTF is up with monkeypox? Because we need another infectious disease running rampant. Blessedly this seems to be far less transmissible and less deadly than COVID. It seems to be like HIV in that it mostly affects gay males. I hope they get the vaccine more widely available soon, and to the most at-risk people first.

    The new vaccine from Novavax is highly effective in protecting against severe disease. They tested on 30k people, 44% of whom were not white, which is a big deal to see how well it works in diverse populations.

    I agree.

    Mine had never cried for other shots. Just this one. I have no idea why it was different for them.
    My youngest didn't cry at all for the 2nd, just the 1st. Said she didn't even feel the 2nd one.

    Kids cry when they get shots. That's not news. Showing it like this paints it as traumatic when in actuality we're doing what we can to keep kids safe.

    My kids cried, too, and they're older than these kids. It broke my heart in pieces, but I'm still glad they're vaccinated. It wasn't even an option not to do it. It's my job to protect them.
