    Oh for sure, plus I spoke into my shoulder and set up a lunch with Gates.

    On a serious note, I wonder how many of those anti-vaxxers saying there is a tracker in the vaccine have smart phones, Alexa, or Google devices...

    So I went to bed last night, woke up with chills. Slept head to toe clothing, with a sweater, on top of a heating pad...and still shivered most of the night.

    Today I feel sore, weak, and dizzy...plus a headache. So this shot is kicking my ass...first one was a sore arm and that's it

    That sucks, I got away with minimal side effects.

    On the first night, my first shot (AZ) gave me the chills as well, but it only lasted an hour or so. The second night I went to bed without supper at 6 and slept like the dead for 12 hours.

    Second shot (Phizer)? I went to bed at 9ish and slept for 12 hours like the dead again. That was the extent for me.

    After my first shot (AZ), felt tired and had a headache the next day. Laid down for a couple hours, got up, still had the headache, took an Advil, went about my day. Woke up that night with the worst chills I'd ever had. Was fine the following day.

    Second shot (Pfizer), injection site was sore for about 3 days. Felt a bit flushed the day after but can't say whether it was a side effect or something unrelated.

    Yeah, I had to put on pants, shirt, sweater, socks...pull the sweater hood over my head, pull heavy blankets over my head so I was 100% covered...AND turn on a heating pad and I still shook for 2-3 hours.

    As of right now, everything has subsided, feel perfectly fine

    I wonder if people who had tough go's with the vaccine are people who would have had a tough go with covid itself? Wonder if there's any correlation there

    I never get sick and had a strong reaction, wife immune system isn't super great and she had no reactions...but I am guessing there is no "consistent" formula there.

    With my health I am sure I would die if I got the covid and I didn't even feel the shot go in the arm :shrug: now I feel like shit all the time so it would be hard to tell if I was having a reaction from the vaccine but I didn't really feel any worse after my second shot.

    Nova Scotia Health Public Health is advising of potential exposure to COVID-19 on an Air Canada flight. In addition to media releases, all potential exposure notifications are listed here: http://www.nshealth.ca/covid-exposures.

    Anyone who was on the following flight in the specified rows and seats should visit https://covid-self-assessment.novascotia.ca/en to book a COVID-19 test, regardless of whether or not they have COVID-19 symptoms. You can also call 811 if you don’t have online access or if you have other symptoms that concern you. All other passengers on this flight should continue to self-isolate as required and monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

    Please follow the instructions below based on your immunization status:

    *If you are FULLY VACCINATED (received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before the exposure date) you are not required to self-isolate as long as you are not experiencing any symptoms of the virus. You are still asked to get tested once and should monitor for symptoms up to 14 days after the exposure date. If symptoms develop you should self-isolate, get re-tested and stay isolated until you receive a negative test result.

    *If you are PARTIALLY VACCINATED (received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before the exposure date or more than 21 days if you’re 70 years old or greater):
    • If you have completed your required self-isolation upon entry to Nova Scotia for 7 days (until July 8, 2021) and have received 2 negative test results, no further action is required.

    *If you are UNVACCINATED (have not received any COVID-19 vaccine, or it has been less than 14 days since your first dose) you are required to:
    • Self-isolate for 14 days, until July 15, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

    So NS didn't want the reckless NB folk who opened up to everyone coming in...

    Well we had no increase of cases, 6 days straight of 0 new cases, and active cases is at 6.

    80% single vaccine
    50.5% double vaccine

    From what I can tell NS is still seeing new cases and exposures...we should keep you out?

    Seems to me like the pandemic is mostly over at this point. Seems vaccines are working. Just need to get everyone vaccinated.

    Our numbers are being kind of stubborn though.
    Having said that, of 36 cases:
    • 15 are in Cape Breton
    • 16 are in Halifax Peninsula/Chebucto
    • 4 are in Bedford/Sackville
    • 1 in Dartmouth/Southeast
    Would be nice to see it drop some more

    upload_2021-7-12_9-6-13.png

    Vaccination numbers are looking pretty good

    The pandemic is worldwide. It’s nice to think it’s over but it won’t be over until the vaccination rates are at 70%+ everywhere, not just NS (and despite Wayne’s best effort, no one cares about NB).

    It’s tough to see poorer countries lagging behind even with increased efforts to get more vaccine out there. It’s even tougher to watch places like right-wing America just flat out refusing to take it and now putting everyone at risk.

    The risk? If we only look at people refusing the vaccine, isn’t the risk only on them? The risk for everyone is the variants. So far, the vaccines have held strong but what happens when that’s no longer the case? The majority of new cases in the US are now the Delta variant that started in India. It just shows how quickly things morphed and adapted.

    I’m personally still optimistic - I just spent a week in Central Oregon on vacation and it was a glorious mask-less week not even really thinking about the pandemic but… I know it’s not quite over yet.
