I talked to my Ren faire boss about the whole thing yesterday and about whether I think our big August event is going to happen.  If it does, I'm not sure I'm going to go.  I'm definitely not taking the kids.  It'll break Zane's heart, but better that than having him catch it just before he can be vaccinated.

Hbomberguy has done quite the magnum opus on anti-vaxx.

Didn't even have to get into the point that people on the spectrum aren't lepers.

Did first shot of Astrazeneca and had side effects. Mysciatic pain flared too much I couldn' t sleep at night and Panadol did not work for me. Second day was better, but still there was some pain, so I sweated it out in the afternoon and woke up healthy.
Still all this is better than having covid and exposing myself to possible death

I didn't have any effects with my first (maybe tender at the injection site for a few hours?), and nothing with the second.

Turns out my eldest sister had her shots the same time - same result (or lack of results).

Next youngest sister had her first weeks ago, and is awaiting her second shot in a couple of weeks time. Same thing - no reaction at all.

These were all AZ.

The youngest sister doesn't want to get vaccinated....

I had Moderna.

The side effects were somewhere between extremely mild and non-existent.

Very slight, barely noticeable arm soreness.

All of my parent friends spend their time talking about when the kids can get vaccinated.

My first shot was AstraZeneca and it caused some pain and soreness in shoulder area. I get similar effects from flu shots but this time the pain was harder and lasted longer. My second shot was in last week, Pfizer-BioNTech. No effects at all.

I didn't know you could mix and match like that.

The health authorities here in Australia are strongly recommending against mixing vaccines.

Just last week they recommended against Astra-Zeneca for over 50s, unless you've already had a first dose of A-Z. As that's the boat I'm in, I'm sitting back to wait for the second A-Z dose. But apparently there are a lot of over-50s who've been given A-Z first up who are now seeking Pfizer for their second dose, and the government is trying to stop that.
