Covid-19 Freedom

Today is 2 weeks since my second vaccine dose (Astrazeneca/Pfizer)

That means I have maximum protection and am pretty much safe from severe disease, hospitalization and death now. Of course there is a very small chance things could go south but it is negligible. Feels good. Covid anxiety gone.

How may others are fully vaxxed?.

I’m fully vaccinated. 2 doses of Pfizer. It’s definitely a weight off my mind.

I was fully vaccinated since April 2. Moderna was the vaccine I got.

I’m fully vaccinated, so I no longer wear a mask in most places (my choice).

With the vaccines, I now view COVID-19 as an “acceptable risk.” An acceptable risk is the likelihood and danger of an event weighed against the benefit, or perceived benefit, to a group or society. Examples of acceptable risk are driving a car or flying in an airplane.

That said, I follow CDC guidelines.

Yo! (raises hand) Feeling about the same as when I was unvaxxed. Still staying in hiding as much as possible. I’m a firm believer in Finagle’s Law. Resistentialism for the win.

I am waiting for them to create a non mRNA vaccine. Like one that is done in the more old fashioned way.

but having said that I understand that the mRNA one seems to be working atm so it is cool that people do not fear it the way that I do.

I also think I am unlikely to even catch it.
because my immune system is probably strong enough

My sibling had covid and i got tested but did not have it, for instance

and I try to stay healthy

They do have non mRNA vaccines. The Johnson & Johnson and Astrazeneca are traditional vaccines called “Viral vectors”. There is another vaccine coming soon called Novavax and it is a protein subunit vaccine.

Only the Pfizer and Moderna are mRNA

that is exciting to know…I will look into that,…

I had one of each. My first shot was Astrazeneca (Traditional Viral Vector) and my second shot was Pfizer (mRNA).

I had a sorer arm and more side effects with the Astrazeneca shot. The Pfizer shot gave me a slightly less sore arm and no side effects.

They do have one, but it’s DNA based and has killed a few people vis-a-vis blood clotting. AstraZenica. The mRNA vaccines appear to be remarkably safe and effective. So effective they are probably the future of vaccines.

what do you mean by it is DNA based?

AZ payload is stored in double-stranded DNA (adenovirus). It’s harmless and bootlegs some of your cells, makes them produce spike proteins like those in covid virus. Your immune system goes WTF, and learns to recognize and whack spikes in the future. Only problem is that AZ isn’t as effective as the mRNA vaccines and is more prone to causing clotting. It will likely be discontinued once there’s enough mRNA vax for everyone.

@Mae If you are looking for a vaccine that is neither DNA or RNA based then Novavax is for you , but it hasn’t been released yet, but based on trials it is remarkably effective.

@velociraptor @Headspark that is some informative stuff thanks

will need to look into that novavax, which country is creating it?

USA is creating it

@Mae Here is an article you may want to read. And here is a quote from it…

In this context, the success of the Novavax vaccine should be A1 news. The recent results confirm that it has roughly the same efficacy as the two authorized mRNA vaccines, with the added benefit of being based on an older, more familiar science. The protein-subunit approach used by Novavax was first implemented for the hepatitis B vaccine, which has been used in the U.S. since 1986. The pertussis vaccine, which is required for almost all children in U.S. public schools, is also made this way. Some of those people who have been wary of getting the mRNA vaccines may find Novavax more appealing.

I just want to clarify that my mind is prone to catastrophising so the mRNA vaccines are probably fine.

It is just that this catastrophisation that goes on in my head is pretty severe and so that is why I personally may opt for the novavax
