I just read an article saying that it won’t affect the vax but it’s not recommended because it can make any side effects worse. And it’s just until those go away

As with most things, you’ll be fine if you don’t overdo it...I stopped off at a good brewery close to my vac site that I don’t get to very much and picked up my celebration pack and I will most certainly be cracking a few open this evening

edit: which is what pretty much everybody else said

Have you gotten both shots??

Sure have! I got mine in February. Wife is wicked high risk for Covid, and any respiratory illnesses due to her rare heart defects, so we played it ultra safe when stuff hit the fan. We both qualified for 1B in Texas, so we got that ASAP. We are all set and ready for travel again :)

I felt very few obvious effects after my second Pfizer. I got pretty tired about 12 hours after, had a slightly sore arm, and *maybe* a bit of a stiff neck and lower back the day after (which are symptoms I get when I get sick), but even those could have been from sleeping poorly. I got the shot on Friday morning, got banged up that evening, and was doing yardwork on Saturday.

Of course, on Sunday I googled whether the lack of side effects from the vaccine meant that it didn't work. :lol:

First shot done!!!!!!  Wait four weeks and it will be complete!  I’m getting some weird signals in my head and there was a drone following me home. Should I be worried?

Just got back from getting the older Miss J jabbed at M&T. She joked that she now has boarding clearance to see her Alien race she was spawned from. :D

Wife got her second Pfizer at the George Mason Patriot Center today. Apparently they're only doing second shots there, and she said the place was absolutely rocking! Apparently the workers were singing and dancing to Toto and Def Leppard (among other stuff) blasting over the sound system. :lol:

M&T was hopping today also. Think they got a back up as had to wait in a line but it moved on through. Got inside and as Miss J is a minor got priority move up through check in. I swear we witnessed over 2000 people in just the hour and a half we were there go through the line. Did not mind that it took longer as it was so nice to see so many people getting it. Extremely efficient well run gig going on there.

I don't drink but I did get home and enjoyed a nice hybrid strain of medical marijuana that packed a punch. Jabbed at 3pm. Chilling by 4:20. Process was smooth. Round 2 in a few weeks. Thank you science.

Oh for sure. Great for parents that don't want to smell up the house and neighborhood or chilling on the boat or the beach. Sun and alcohol don't mix. Some cannibus oil and some cold water to drink makes for a fun healthy day in the sun imo.

And sorry gotta disagree.....nothing better than chilling on the beach with a beer or white claw. :D

Good luck! Don’t forget to get the shot in your non-drinking arm.

HREFv3 full implementation has been pushed back to mid-May as it undergoes stability testing at NCO (30 days). There will be a replacement of the NMMB Core with the FV3 Dynamical Core where improvements in both the horizontal grid spacing and vertical levels will lead to better statistical output as the NMMB core was the worst performing model in the previous Ensemble set. This is the beginning of the phased implementation of the new FV3 core to replace the older Nonhydrostatic Models we've used within the HiRes family. Big, positive changes for the model world! I'm sure @high risk would know more than me off the bat. I just got done reading the final presentation overview of the changes. I'm excited!

I heard that too. I did it. I drank lots of water before and all evening after. Not a single side effect. Woke up feeling great this morning. I had Moderna dose 1 yesterday.

Thanks!  I’m probably up to 100 oz so far today, ha.  I’m basically living in the bathroom at this point.

I got my second Pfizer shot at 4PM on a Friday and was feeling pretty crappy by noon Saturday. I had a fever and chills all afternoon with a headache, but felt fine by Sunday. Pretty crazy how fast the whole process happens.

fwiw, I got my second dose of Pfizer in late February and had no side effects at all. Not even the sore arm I had with my first shot. You don't have to assume you will have side effects.

It doesn't matter but I won't torment you on this beautiful day. I would suggest keeping the vaccine talk out of banter. The mindset must be we need everyone on board but the damage is done dude. It doesn't matter the status quo is not coming back and COVID wasn't likely to kill anyone on this forum anyway.

From a purely selfish perspective there is no incentive and there is nobody out there worth dieing for and there is much more downside risk than can ever be justified.

I will make an exception for you if you were vaccinated due to travel or occupational reasons.

So anyway..

Went to the DFH brewery and came back with 120 bucks worth of 'danger cap' beer, including a 2014 120 min IPA and a 2008 WWS.
