The moderna booster is a half dose so hopefully side effects will be reduced. Mine were minimal. 

My first two shots were Pfizer, if I got Moderna, it really would have put me out as the booster, at half dose, had similar effects on me as a full dose of Pfizer.

I've been meaning to read up on the company, I thought it was part of a larger drug company, but it's a small startup based out of MA I think, well, small compared to the likes of Pfizer and J&J. I wonder how a small company managed to compete with a giant like Pfizer.

Hamilton Bennett, a 35 year old scientist, who received her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, headed up the research and implementation.   Score one for Washington!  Since the Huskies can't win games.

I got my Moderna booster today at work. So far I feel fine 5 hours after the shot.  I felt terrible starting 8 hours after both of the first 2 shots. 

So far the booster is not as bad as the first 2 shots. Got it around noon yesterday and felt fine when I went to bed. Woke up around 3 with the chills. Put sweat pants on, took Tylenol, and turned the heat up and I felt better. A little headache this morning and feel tired, but much better than last time. Last time I felt bad for 36 hours.

Got my 5 year old signed up for his shot this coming Wednesday!

Both my kids will be getting their first shots the week of 11/22. Big sigh of relief for me and my wife.

My 10 year olds are getting it after school today.

My crazy MIL keeps pestering my wife with misinformation from Facebook.  If brains were gold, she wouldn't have enough to blow her nose.

She doesn't play QB for the Green Bay Packers, does she?

No, QB has to move around.   She's more built like the entire defensive line.

Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb: 'By Jan. 4, this pandemic may well be over'

 

The rest of the quote is:

"By Jan. 4, this pandemic may well be over, at least as it relates to the United States," at which point "we'll be in more of an endemic phase of this virus," Gottlieb predicted.

The biggest plus is the non-vaccine medication that treats the symptoms to prevent hospitalizations. Which, I am sure anti-vaxxers will gladly take 😛 

 

Yep, trading one science for another.  How in the hell do they decide, most being science-challenged?

They were relatively small, but they did have the biggest biotech IPO in history in 2018 (raised over $600M). It's actually a cool story, their entire company was about modified RNA, hence their name (MODifEd RNA). They were just small enough to move fast, and big enough to have the money to do it. Right technology, right place, right time.

Now that the CDC has approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine for kids ages 5-11, here are my predictions as to what will happen:One-third of you will RUN, not walk, to get it.One-third of you will absolutely...

Agree with the article, It just shouldn’t be mandated like San Francisco plans to IMO.  

from the article….“Again, this decision is personal and unique to each family. And I won’t judge you at all if you want to learn more from me before you decide to get it for your kids. 

to me this reads, I won’t judge you as long as you ultimately agree with me.  What if they don’t agree to get it for their kids?  Is that ok?

Fine. As long as it's not personal and political.

My kid had to have a ton of shots to even get into school. It won't be long before the Covid vaccination is added to that shot list. Rightfully so.

    • Day 123: Worked on feel from recent lesson with 4-iron and PW, hitting balls 1/2 swings. Teacher suggested to alternate between long club and mid/short club when practicing since she observed I overswing with longer club in hand and thought that might help tame it. Used LVP camera to replay swings during practice but video quality was grainy in low light.

    • I finally found the rule(below) but still do not know why there would be an issue with spacing less than 1 1/2 “ c. Two Grips A putter may have two grips provided each is circular in cross-section, the axis of each coincides with the axis of the shaft, and they are separated by at least 1.5 inches (38.1 mm).
    • Just saw this article.  I understand what the problem was, what I do not understand is why the spacing of the grips is a problem.  would it somehow give an unfair advantage?  Why is this rule there? Putter grips lead to wild disqualification during U.S. Amateur Four-Ball quarterfinals The Rules of Golf strike again.
