Just got my first Moderna shot this morning! Arm feels fine, and my cell phone reception seems to have improved! Can't wait for the second one!
that's the shot that that idiot mayor of Detroit rejected as a vaccine for lower class folk and not good enough for his city.JandJ
I saw that video, another jackass underqualified politician putting his foot in his mouth.that's the shot that that idiot mayor of Detroit rejected as a vaccine for lower class folk and not good enough for his city.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan declined an initial allocation of the newly authorized Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine this week even as nationwide demand continues to outpace available supply.www.cnn.com
Might want to look for an alternative to the AZ based on the recent headlines....
None of this is true, though.I think this may surface in time.
I do wonder how a vaccine was developed so quickly, previously scientists were saying 2-5 years best case scenario. Also after SARS nothing was done and it took many, many years for vaccine research to get anywhere.
Maybe I'm just a little skeptical, and perhaps since governments were throwing money at the problem it this resolved fairly quickly.
They definitely appear to work. 24 hours after Moderna shot #2, I felt fatigue. 32 hours out, I had a splitting headache and fell asleep. That's not like me.None of this is true, though.
The mRNA technology deployed in Pfizer and Moderna (actually, Moderna was and really just is an antibody company, and was early on contracted by the brainy fellow that developed the mRNA tool that eventually became these vaccines) was developed more than 10 years ago, and proved efficacious, in vivo, in model organism trials over years. The human trials last year were as robust as any standard previously met. Pfizer, I think, has now surpassed the data necessary for general release and not EUA. (...and that's at less than a year since deployment.) Now, as for those last two bits, it's certainly a function of the moment that with the pandemic being so hot, it's "easy" to get that kind of data in a very short amount of time, but that is the reality of the situation and it doesn't change the fact that the minimum standards, and beyond, were met.
A lot was done after SARS--in particular, AZ, I believe, and Merck and a few others were working on covid vaccines in response to SARS for several years. SARS was contained and proved less "pandemicy" than thought, so, as with market-driven research and technology, development was halted because it was too expensive to justify this tool that might not be necessary.
These vaccines have probably had as much, if not more testing, actually, than most other vaccines compared to their history of initial deployment.
Man that first Moderna shot was painful as all hell for a while starting an hour or two after I got it yesterday. Not sure if I’m just soft or what but I couldn’t even lift my arm last night. It’s better now that I’m taking ibuprofen. No illness or fatigue luckily.
We had an HVAC guy here today ... big dude who was saying he used to play football and his first shot was similarly worse than any hit he’d taken lol.
