if you're not following the long now foundation, you're missing some interesting science...

Got my 2nd shot yesterday and feeling pretty good so far.  Not even any arm pain.  

 First shot was a sore arm. I expect the second one to knock me down for a few days - several friends said the second one was kinda rough.

From what I've read, generally, if you feel really bad after the first shot, you were probably already exposed. If not the first but the second, you probably hadn't been exposed before. YMMV...

We got that in our county last year sometime. It does seem to give a heads-up about what's coming, especially when the tourists are here, since it shows an uptick before the patients get tested. But in general it doesn't give us enough to act on. Just enough to prepare.
 
The university is more of a controlled environment...they monitor each dorm individually. 

 
Ah, that makes sense. The equipment was around $8000 IIRC and testing takes a few days and a few hundred dollars (we have to send it off) but it makes a lot of sense to keep it local and test often and in smaller swaths so the results give actionable information, especially in that sort of community.

What's interesting (to me) is the cases are not trending down as much as they should (statistically).  In NJ for example, with 22% of the population fully vaccinated and 37% partially vaccinated...   Deaths are down because seniors and those with co-morbidities are now vaccinated, but the 7 day average of cases in NJ are down ~500 per day since Jan 1 (4700 to 4200) or 10%, but the population that's susceptible should be much lower (2.5 times that)?

 
we always try to go with the best data we have but there are still variables like lag time before vaccination/infection kicks in and the biggie is probably behavior

i see people here, especially tourists, or people in the touristy areas (bars and beaches) letting it all hang out

probably quarantine fatigue and pent up demand

just keep vaccinating like there's no tomorrow and use common sense i say

This escalated into her telling me that the vaccines don't "keep you from getting COVID." I replied that I wasn't going to argue with her. Her rant ended with her saying that the "government" was going to keep making us wear masks ... indefinitely, so what's the point? I hope that she A. got a one dose vax, and B. didn't have any adverse side effects.
 
Bummer that she can't stand by her own convictions. 


 
And, funnily enough, shortly after she left, an email from our HR department came out, explicitly saying that getting the vaccine is an employee's choice, NOT a requirement.  Which they've been saying all along. And, yes, her convictions. I did not expect her to get a vax, knowing her as I do.

And I had a dream with her this morning, right before waking. For the most part I really like her. Honest.
