That’s good news, my first jab was Astrazeneca, my second was Pfizer.

I’ve read a lot of good news about my situation with the vaccines this week. I’ve also read that statins, metformin and antipsychotics are protective against covid, all of which I am on. All good news.

Now I came across this, 8 weeks seems to be the sweet spot for spacing out your 2 shots. I got my shots 8 weeks apart.

I know 2 people who don’t want the vaccine, yet they have received vaccines when they were babies and are fine as adults. I don’t understand them. Millions of people have been vaccinated and they are totally fine. The number of adverse reactions is extremely low, and the number of deaths from the vaccine, primarily blood clots from Astrazeneca, are even lower.

They claim to trust their immune system but I don’t agree. I trust my immune system for some things, but not this virus.

From that article…

The two-dose vaccine still works very well in preventing people from getting seriously sick, demonstrating 88% effectiveness against hospitalization and 91% effectiveness against severe illness, according to the Israeli data.

That’s all I care about really. If I breath in some Covid virus and get infected I don’t really care. I just don’t want to get really sick and die or suffer from “long covid”. If I get the sniffles for a few days and recover then I am happy with the vaccine.

I’ve heard this happening many times. People don’t learn and still won’t take the vaccine.

Yesterday, I told two coworkers that I was skeptical about the pandemic.

Today, one of them told me that three (?!) coworkers got COVID. I am still skeptical, as this seems highly unlikely. There were no extra measures implemented at work, today; I also sensed no alarm from this coworker, or any of my other coworkers, most of whom didn’t mention this at all.

You’re suffering from confirmation bias.
