    The NBA just suspended the season after a member of the Jazz preliminarily tested positive for the coronavirus. Is the NHL next?

    Well, we're neighbours, and on good terms. She's all alone, and her dog just died, also. This was sudden. Doesn't take much imagination to imagine her pain right now. My old dog came up to her and spent a greater than usual amount of time sniffing her- sometimes i think they are wiser than we are.

    I don't want to jinx it, but I think I'm finally getting over COVID. It's been 14 days today since I first had symptoms and 21 days since I was in contact with the person I got it from. It was a terrible two weeks of fevers, shortness of breath that came and went, muscle soreness, extreme fatigue, lack of appetite, and trouble sleeping. I'm 30 years old and healthy and this thing completely knocked me on my ass for almost two straight weeks...I've never been sick like that before. It was amazing how many times I thought I was getting better and it would come back later that day.

    Long story short, this thing is still out there and if you haven't been vaccinated yet I really do recommend staying as safe as possible at least until you are able to get the shot. I wouldn't wish the sickness I had on anyone.

    Glad to hear that you are over it. The severity of Covid seems to be all over the place. Some are asymptomatic, some have mild, flu like symptoms, others get knocked on their ass like you, and still others need hospitalization, and we are all aware of the worst case scenario. My 90+ yo parents are getting their first jab today. If they get through the next ten days after that then the odds are good of them avoiding serious consequences should they contract it.

    Vaccinations are on the way. Now is not the time to be careless. In two months or so most of us will be able to get somewhat back to normal, I hope? Apparently, for those who have had Covid within a 90 day period, they think that you will only need to have one dose of the two dose vaccines, as you will already have antibodies in you.

    I was typing a response (completely neutral for the most part) while the thread was being trimmed and I lost a bunch of it...

    But long story short, I'm a relatively healthy 30 year and COVID knocked my completely on my ass for about 14 days. I always took this stuff seriously but never was too concerned about myself...that all changed when I ended up getting it and saw what it could do. If there is any way at all to minimize the impact to yourself and others I would highly recommend taking it. I just don't see the downside. Don't want to get into any sort of debate about it either. Just putting it out there that this is not something that is fun to go through.

    Recommending something is completely different than verbally abusing and mocking people who choose to do otherwise, which I've seen happen to people both on this forum and in real life. If you think the vaccine is a good fit for you, then by all means get it.

    Back on topic, two teams effected by this horseshit:


    Apparently HM and Hermantown both have to quarantine their rosters because the teams were exposed (to you know what).


    Apparently, Hermantown is going to try using their JV roster, plus three players (apparently) that weren'texposed (to you know what). Of Hermantown's three Varsity players, their leading scorer wasn't exposed. Strange that their leading scorer (the state;s leading scorer) wasn't exposed. :sarcasm:

    Just got contacted by Mayo Clinic that I'm eligible for vaccination and got scheduled for next Wednesday.

    It's possibly 2 dose... but that doesn't mean it won't end up the single dose J&J vaccine either.

    Actually hoping to get the Pfizer one, will find out next Wednesday. :thumbu:

    Mayo seems to be way better for covid treatment in general than the other health systems.

    Mayo seems to be better at everything in general than other health systems.

    I’m getting the J&J in about an hour through work.

    Lucky for you guys. I am way older than almost everyone here, and am still waiting to get an appointment.

    The VA has a completely different supply, and has been ahead of everyone in vaccinating their patients and workers.

    That's why when I found out I was within "range" of a Mayo Clinic Health Services location to be accepted as a patient, I jumped at it. Yes, I have to drive a bit further for a lot of things with them, but Mayo is worth it!

    When it comes to your health, the best in the business is always the right choice. ;)

    There's definitely a reason people from all over the world pay to go there. :)

    J&J vaccine received. No ill side effects.

    It’s about 9 hours after I received my shot. The after effects have kicked in. I’m shivering uncontrollably. Currently in a hot bath to the point where I dare not make it any warmer.

    Just updating so you know the after effects can kick in much later.

    I am aware of the possibities. Wife has had both Pfizer shots. First one she had effects for a day. The second one two. Co workers have had symptoms ranging from the same, to nothing. My 90+yo parents had no aftereffects . Seems to be quite random, just like how the disease affects some people severely, others barely at all.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    The younger the age group, the more frequent and severe the effects. Your 90yro parents having no effects is not at all surprising as a result.

    I've had both doses of Moderna, 38 years old. No side effects other than a pretty sore arm on the first dose.

    So, it's been more than a day since my J&J shot, and zero reaction. Not even a bit. Maybe there is something to this older people not feeling it, though I do have a pretty active immune system still.
