I heard so much misinformation before going to get my first dose of Moderna vaccine that I thought I might bleed out on the spot. Or that a few hours later all of my DNA would dissolve and be replaced by Lemur DNA. Or that I would become neurotic (but how can you be double neurotic?). Or that a cabal of sinister dark state hooligans would drain my bank accounts. Or that the nano-transmitters in the vaccine would mess up my wi-fi reception. Or that I would start vomiting newsprint and be unable to stop. Or that I would grow a second head which would try to turn on the original head and bite it. Or that I would become a zombie (been there, done that). Or that the vaccine was poison and only Q'Anon could give me the antidote.
I'm happy to say that none of these things happened. Well, I have no way of knowing about the DNA but I haven't morphed into an endangered species so that's some comfort.
Here's what happened this morning: When I woke up I took a battery of I.Q. tests and find that now I am 30 points smarter than I was yesterday. I am also ten years younger. I decided to walk up to the neighborhood coffee shop but I felt so good that I ended up sprinting to a nice place about ten miles from here instead. I lost five pounds of fat overnight and gained ten pounds of rock solid muscle. My waist shrank from a size 32 to a size 28. When I checked my retirement account this morning it had tripled overnight. My wife told me that I am adorable. As did all 17 of my mistresses; newly acquired; just since the vaccine.
But it doesn't stop there. My neighbor's car had a flat tire and no tire jack. I didn't mind in the least holding the rear quadrant of the car off the ground while he changed the tire. But I will say that those Chevy Suburbans get heavy after a while.
But yeah. My right shoulder is just a bit sore. I guess you have to take the bad with the good.
That's all I've got on this subject. Do what you want. Your results may vary.
Oh, one last thing; for a limited time yesterday, at least here in Austin, everyone who got a vaccine also got a free Leica M10R. Nice. Added on Thursday to make something clear. This is directly from the CDC website:
How COVID-19 Vaccines Work
COVID-19 vaccines help our bodies develop immunity to the virus that causes COVID-19 without us having to get the illness. Different types of vaccines work in different ways to offer protection, but with all types of vaccines, the body is left with a supply of “memory” T-lymphocytes as well as B-lymphocytes that will remember how to fight that virus in the future.
It typically takes a few weeks for the body to produce T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes after vaccination. Therefore, it is possible that a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection.
Sometimes after vaccination, the process of building immunity can cause symptoms, such as fever. These symptoms are normal and are a sign that the body is building immunity.
Have a nice day.
