    Is anyone else fascinated with the amount of different epidemiologists, virologists, and immunologists that have surfaced to be interviewed lately? :rolleyes:

    They are all obviously much busier people since the Covid pandemic hit………

    Funny how they have different facts than the journalists.

    I didn't know there was so many of them. What do they do in normal times?

    Got my first dose of AZ yesterday. I was kind of disappointed that my phone still said 4G. I was assured that I would be getting 5G... :confused:

    At least they are reacting quickly Chuck... I don't know how long NSW is going to be struggling for, given today's figures .
    Cheers, Mark

    We went shopping today, Friday (or rather Lynne went shopping and I stayed in the car). Plenty of toilet paper. Shops almost empty of customers. Oodles of parking. Maitland Woolworths. And yet, yesterday, there apparently were queues to get in!?!?

    That struck me as well. And they often have a different story to tell...

    I thought it'd end any connection possibilities ... but now you are a 5G aerial/booster, you can buy a 5G capable phone and boil your own blood .... or is that taking the nonsense too far :rolleyes:

    Wife and I got the AZ jab on Tuesday at the chemist, sick of waiting for the doctor to tell us when we could get one. Took all of 10 mins, beginning with the paperwork, that requires your name and medicare number at the bottom of both sides of each page, still got it wrong a few times, untrainable ..... anyway, I felt fine that evening, wife complained about a sore arm at the jab site. Went to bed around 11pm, wife had the cold shivers all night, said she couldn't get warm, the only issue I had was a headache developing and that has been the case every night for the last 18 yrs since the MVA.
    Wednesday morning, by 9 am I had a headache that'd kill a black dog, Endone was required to take the edge of but never cleared it, every muscle and joint hurt, gave in at around lunch time and went back to bed. Woke up around 7pm, felt a bit better, back to bed by 9pm and slept all night, wife slept all day in bits and then all night as well. Felt a bit second hand Thursday, fine today ........ If that is a sample of what the real deal is like, I sure don't wanna catch it ....

    Most friends I’ve consulted with, tell me if you survive the effects of the first dose of AZ, the second one is easy.
    The first dose of Pfizer, is the easy one, and the second one, is the one that floors you……..

    So take one shot of fizzler.?
    There are lab claims that one shot of fizzler gives 56% coverage which happens to be close to total of the aged zapper. :D

    Nothing like the real deal...
    Try respiratory failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), sepsis and septic shock, thromboembolism, and/or multi-organ failure, including injury of the heart, liver or kidneys.

    The post-vaccination side effects you and your wife described are not unusual.
    Keep a watch on whether they persist particularly from day four/five on and seek medical help if they persist.

    Or go the full with either………and then get the “booster”.

    I imagine the “booster”, will be a modified one to cope with the next strain of “Delta Plus”, or yet another mutation, assuming they can keep up.

    "Delta Plus" is already here.

    The variant has spread to 29 countries including Australia, which recorded the Lambda variant on 3 April 2021, isolated from a 28-year-old male in Sydney.
    “The Lambda variant has an eclectic set of mutations, many of which appear to be immune evasions — that is, allowing the virus to evade a person’s immune response. Six of the key mutations in the virus’ spike protein appear as three ‘pairs’ of substitution mutations in close proximity.
