Same experience with Moderna for me a couple days ago. Pretty sore yesterday, but mostly better today. Makes me think I'm gonna have a strong reaction to the second shot in a month.

I've heard that the pain is much more severe jn the second shot. Heard some people even got a fever the day they got the second shot. Sucks but I'd rather have this than covid.



I was really worried my dad wasn't gonna survive this pandemic. He's in his 60's, newly diabetic, and is on a permanent regimen of immunosuppressants after his liver transplant a few years back. Thankfully it's been a week now since his second shot and he should be fully inoculated. Now I just have one parent to be particularly concerned about.



Some good news.

Covid vaccines may stop spread ‘almost completely’ with jabs working ‘better than any of us could have imagined’

The one-shot strategy was a resounding success I might add. GG UK.



 

 

 

 

 

To show how hard it is to escape the discerning gaze of cellular immunity, these are the results for T-Cell response to all VoCs out there. The two numbers represent respectively number and magnitude of preserved epitopes vs. the basal virus:

CD4+ T-Cell

84.4% - 89.6% B.1.1.7 (UK)
88.1% - 90% B.1.351 (SA)
95.7% - 94.3% P.1 (Brazil)
97.8% - 97.1% CAL20C (US)

CD8+ T-Cell

100% - 98.3% B.1.1.7 (UK)
97.3% - 98.4% B.1.351 (SA)
97.3% - 97.9% P.1 (Brazil)
97.9% - 97.8% CAL20C (US)

Been put on a list to get my vaccine early. Could get it as soon as next month.

Parts of Europe are on the rise again, USA still declining. At least deaths are still declining.

Canada reported 16.9K new cases (down from 20.9K) and 236 deaths (339 last week)
South Africa reported 8,201 new cases (down from 10.1K) and 782 deaths (925 last week)
Japan reported 7,256 new cases (7,505 last week) and 397 deaths (448 last week)
South Korea reported 2,732 new cases (2,778 last week) and 42 deaths (35 last week)
Australia reported 63 new cases (40 last week) no deaths

Europe in detail

Italy, Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Sweden and Norway are rising, the rest either flat or slowly declining. The wave that never seems to end.

Reported cases in Israel are still not really declining, flattened out slowly rising, despite half the population now having received a shot. (53.2 percent one dose, 39% second dose) I guess since all the vulnerable people receive shots first, those who keep themselves save anyway, real decline won't show up until the young and restless get their shots. Reported deaths are on a steady decline in Israel.

They would if people interacted randomly like cattle. No wonder, then, the concept of herd immunity comes from veterinary medicine.

Since you'll have younger people mostly interacting among themselves, and the same, I suppose, for more vaccine-skeptic groups like orthodox Jews, the rest of the population being vaccinated will mean nothing in terms of the reproduction rate of the virus among these populations.
