Simple curiosity. It's interesting to see how people's actual experiences compare/accord/conflict with MSM and social media narratives.

Probably won't get a true reflection of how many haven't been vaxed as many of them will now be dead.

My 3 year old daughter had it around Christmas but my s/o and I never got it. I consider that to be a success for the vaccine. I'm sure you know how toddlers are.

Your optimism is contagious.








see what I did there?

The search for the ultimate signature continues apace. I have journeyed from the peaks of Nepal to the depths of oceanic trenches. I have crossed deserts, jungles, swamps, savannas, steppes and frozen wastelands. I have consulted with seers, swamis, sages, scholars and savants. The peregrination proceeds purposefully.

Been vaxxed? Vax + booster
Vax side effects? No
Had covid? Not to my knowledge. I haven't been sick in a long time, so I don't think I could have had it masquerading as a cold either. I feel pretty lucky given the current stat that 60% of Americans have had it and that my students have been getting it, so I probably have been exposed to it.

I know the purpose of the questions have no ill intent, but I prefer not to provide personal healthcare information. However, I will say one thing.

This virus sucks balls. :|

Assuming you work, would you have been able to keep your job?

I've been excluded from my office building – working from home – since Christmas. I may yet lose my job.

I hope you can keep your job.
The bright side of losing your job is that your country has UB.
Some countries don't have that at all and losing your job means you don't have any income.

I'm certainly are going to lose my job , next year on the 6th of july it's 2 years of sickleave and that automaticly means , no more job.
The benefits here are excelent so i don't have to starve to dead.... i can keep living my life as i did before , the decrease of income isn't that much.

My workplace never asked anyone to be vaccinated if they weren't already.

By UB, do you mean unemployment benefits? The absolute maximum I could receive is $330/week; our rent is $500/week. By comparison, my current take-home (post-tax) income is $1,400/week. The $330 UB is better than nothing, but it's not sustainable.

It's good – great, even – that you have another 10 months of sick leave, which I assume is paid. That's heaps of time to see if there's some other work you could do, even part-time, once your current employer lets you go.

Just about every employer here expected that staff would jab up; I'm not sure what proportion actually mandated it like mine did.

To suggest it's galling to me that my employer's vax mandate is still in effect – despite the "current health advice" being that vaccination does not materially affect transmission rates – is an understatement. The unvaxxed are still being ostracised, shunned, negatively impacted, etc. etc. for what is now admitted as being literally no reason. Good times!

Been vaxxed? Moderna early on; since I'm an educator, they offered it to us first. They came to the school and started with the oldest teachers and worked their way to younger. It was not mandated, just made available. Two shots initially, then a booster this past February, then another booster around September, all Moderna brand.
Vax side effects? First shot, no effects. The second shot that came just a couple weeks later gave me a very high fever (104.2 Fahrenheit), headache, and drowsiness, but only for a portion of a day, then the next day I was completely fine. Third shot (first real booster) no effects. Fourth shot (second real booster) gave me a low 100F fever for a couple hours, then I was fine.
Had covid? I doubt it, although some people can have it and not know it.
Immediate covid symptoms? N/A
Lingering problems ("long covid")? N/A


Sadly I've had some family and family friends die of COVID which was really difficult for everybody involved back when the numbers of victims were still high.



I'm around many hundreds of teenagers every day and have been for decades, so I'm guessing my immune system had to become strong those first couple years, and I'm hoping that all these shots are somehow helping.



Around here, we encourage people to get vaccinated but we in no way mandate it and respect the choices of those that don't feel it's right for them. With that approach, we avoided the heated arguments and ended up getting most of our staff and kids vaccinated to the point where our state governor (and his dog which our students liked) showed up at our school and gave us a $50,000.00 reward for having an extremely high percentage of vaccinated students compared to other schools.


So far our numbers of positive cases and transmission rates have been almost non-existent around here this school year. I hope it stays that way, but it's hard to predict.

Don't forget to live before you die.
