Late to the news here, glad you're doing well so far Josh. Thanks for sharing the point by point details too, I've known hardly anybody who's gotten it and they haven't given this level of detail on symptoms

Iíve taken the last two days off from work. Today I dial back in and find that on Monday I was identified as a high-risk health care worker and I have been offered the vaccine.



So after almost a year I develop symptoms of Coronavirus on 1/8 and go-fucking-figure that Iím offered the vaccine on 1/18.

Most of the people I am close with who have gotten it fall into the same symptoms josh has had. Some a bit worse (more breathing issues and longer symptoms) some a little better. If I branch out beyond close friends to colleagues, some have been much worse. 2 hospitalized and a former colleague died. All of those people are over 45 and 1 is not exactly the picture of healthy choices. Of all those I know who have had it, there seems to be one person who is still impacted 3 months later, hopefully that will turn around soon.

Hard not to be envious of you folks getting vaccinated. It's still at least six months off for me.

It's good you're seemingly one of the typical ones, Josh. Not getting sicker, etc.

Yeah, I have mixed feelings about having access to the vaccination. On one hand, given what I do it makes sense I have access to it and would be silly to not get it. Additionally, I have a kid who relies on me, so getting very ill would be a problem. On the other hand, we havenít been overrun with transmissions here in this building and I am not in a high risk category. Ultimately, if I donít get it, it wonít be going to someone else any time soon based on the distribution plan and so much of this working depends on as many people as possible getting it.

Jovid-19, how are you doing the last two days? Still feeling close to 100%, or did it creep back at all?

You shouldn't feel guilty at all. Teachers should have been tier 1a, right after health care workers.

My state just got like 4,500 vaccine does that came in compromised. They are sending replacements, but they aren't really replacements as those have to come to the detriment of somewhere else. If Biden can pull off this 100 million in the fist 100 days, I think our summer will be looking pretty good.

It's shocking for me. I work in a grocery store. I was 100% sure I and everyone of my co-workers would get this. This pandemic started in March. From March up until Thanksgiving, we only had 1 employee get C-19. We know he didn't get it from a customer and he didn't spread it to any other employee. I thought it was going to all fall apart when another employee brought C-19 in from the outside about two weeks after Thanksgiving. I thought for sure I and a few others would catch this thing. But surprisingly, nobody caught it from him. About 6 weeks after he had C-19, yet one other employee caught C-19, but not from a customer. This employee is now isolated and didn't spread the virus. There's yet one more employee also self isolating because a family member caught C-19. This employee went for a C-19 test. Haven't heard if she tested positive. The point I'm trying to make is, you never know what your fellow employees are doing outside the office. They could come into contact with someone who is positive and not know it. If you all wear your masks around each other I think you would be ok. But I suggest getting the vaccine, just in case a fellow employee unknowingly brings the virus into your office. Its better to be safe than sorry.

I already got the first dose.

And yes, so far it has been people’s choices outside of work and not transmission at work.

I just got the first dose (Pfizer). Going to cut out drinking the next 5-6 weeks to give this puppy the best possible shot.

A lot of mixed info on that front. No recommendations in the US.

Quick update:

I feel about 95% recovered. My senses of taste and smell are slowly coming back; Iíve noticed Iím picking up more and more traces of both with each passing day. I could taste a Charleston Chew today! I also just got on the Peloton for the first time in a week and a half and was able to push 360 kj/200 watts/512 kcal over 30 minutes, which felt good and pleasantly surprised me. I also donít feel nearly as tired over the past 48 hours.

For those that get it: be patient, rest, and youíll be okay.

Just an update on my end too, regarding same household transmission. It’s been over 2 weeks now since my wife started showing symptoms. She had a very mild case with slight congestion, body ache, fatigue, and loss of taste and smell. She tested negative on Thursday, and her symptoms have all disappeared - except for the taste and smell thing. Her smell and taste are definitely starting to come back, but still not at 100%.

I’ve had zero symptoms, and my mandatory quarantine ends next Sunday. I assume I’m in the clear, but I want to get through midweek to be absolutely comfortable.

Question for both of you if you don't mind me asking. Will you get the vaccine when you become eligible?

I had it offered to me on Monday. I was told I could take it any time between now and 90 days from now (I work in healthcare) as I recently had an active infection.

I told them I’d wait a few weeks and then take it, just to make make sure I’m fully recovered from infection/symptoms before taking the vaccine. I’m probably fine now, but I figured why not play it safe anyways as I have a flood of antibodies at the moment.
