A physician friend of mine said while it's very, very, anecdotal, drinking lots of water (16 oz) both before and after the shot seems to make the reaction a little easier -- or at least everyone he's suggested it to hasn't had a significant reaction.

I'm 48 hours since the Pfizer jab. No problemo.

IDK, I had about 24 oz or so of high gravity beer which is mostly water and I didn't feel so great.

Yes, yearly or bi-yearly vaccination booster shots may become a thing. Fortunately mRNA technology is adaptable and seems likely to be up to the job.

Sure, but that is not what I was getting at. The COVID vaccine doesn't protect against SARS or MERS as far as I know. There is no reason to believe the COVID vaccine will be effective against the next version of the coronavirus. Although lessons learned could obviously speed up vaccine development for the next version.

 

SARS pandemic started around November 2002. MERS was first found in April 2012. COVID around January 2020. If this pace continues the next corona-virus outbreak will be around 2026.

Could be right. I have no prediction at all on the potential emergence of SARS-CoV-3

Edit, that got me looking and I found this about preparations for it.

Alcohol shortly before or after the vaccination is thought to interfere with getting the best immune response.  Shortly being days, not minutes.

Have a reference for that?

Common belief, totally incorrect.

But apparently some Russian scientist was quoted saying this about the Sputnik.

After the first Pfizer shot, my lower back muscles locked up tight as a drum for about 8 hours and I could barely walk. Then it went away as quickly as it came. 

After the second one, I was pretty tired for a couple of days, but then that passed as well. But I now feel safer, and less stressed, than I have since...well...about a year. I'm working on a design for a T-shirt. Picture showing the images is below, although the pictures will be circle-shaped when I finish, and not square. And the one for Trump is larger than the rest and has a speech balloon saying, "Just Inject Bleach". Still working on it, but you get the basic idea. This was just a rough draft.

Yep.  I was wrong and admitted such.

"Trump bungles this and hundreds if not thousands die.  Quote me in the future if you like...ain't gonna happen".

Why admit anything? You were absolutely spot on by Republican standards. In fact, it wasn't "hundreds if not thousands" it was actually hundreds of thousands. You were right again.

Does pointing this out make you feel better?  YW

Tô go along with the zit popping should come acknowledgment of the change in attitude, especially because it was openly admitted at the time. No, there wasn’t a thread entitled “man I fucked up again,” but definitely an admission that Covid was real, and a discussion of the shit his wife was giving him over the previous attitude.
