Was just thinking I'd better get a covid and flu shot. Think I have it now. Will test asap, but the severe back aches separate it from the flu in my experience. Severe chills and stuffy head too. Will take some more pain killer, and my ma suggests vitamin c stuff but not sure that does much.
Eric Topol recently posted about the very rapid increase in the JN.1 variant in Europe, and the unexpected effectiveness (at least in terms of neutralizing antibodies) of the monovalent booster.

>>>We’re well below 50% JN.1 throughout the US, so the wave is just getting rooted. . . . Unexpectedly, given the marked difference in mutations between XBB.1.5, the target of the monovalent “updated” booster compared with JN.1, there is very good cross-reactivity as demonstrated in 3 highly regarded labs (Yunlong Cao’s in Peking, David Ho’s at Columbia and David Veesler’s at U Washington). These labs have preprint published data showing solid levels of neutralizing antibodies for the XBB.1.5 booster against JN.1, our best surrogate marker for protection vs severe Covid (hospitalizations and deaths). . . .
This is lucky. Actually damn lucky if you look at the profound differences in sequence (across the spike below) for the booster’s XBB.1.5 target compared with JN.1. These major differences between XBB.1.5 and JN.1 extend well beyond the spike.<<<

The severe chills and back pain lasted for 3-6 hours. If I remember right it was about that long last time. I can't move much due to fatigue, but at least the worst part of it appears to be gone.

Going out for supper with friends this evening, followed by attending a hockey game. I expect to be sick with something next week. :rolleyes:

Be brave and mask up. :)
Get one of those N99 masks that are impervious to static electricity. That is the lates spew from Rand Paul the senator that static electricity reduces usefulness of an N95 to 3 hours. :eek:

Tell them the mask helps with your lung capacity and blood pressure improvement. :D

Why hasn't someone like AudioQuest designed a mask that uses batteries to combat this? I'm sure that would prevent static electricity disabling the mask.

More evidence that the tin foil hat brigade got it right.

Here' more proof that the loonies are correct-

Beer kills covid, right?:)
Sadly the booze consumed is not enough to kill germs, but ya might pass out and not have to worry about till ya wake up, and then you might have a headache to deal with, on top of covid. :oops:

Once per year for the covid shot on average?
Not sure about that, might be every 6 months.... need to look it up with the latest advice

From memory it was booster every 5 to 12 months - and annual was the longest recommended period

This stuff is no fun. I'm on day 5 and after the more severe symptoms it has been more of a consistent dull pain, fatigue, sore throat, stuffy head. The GM at the apartment has been to the hospital twice now, and the assistant has been out too.

Guess I'm a bit confused. I've probably had 4 or 5 shots now going back to the original two during 2020. I'm not really sure what counts as a booster and what as an annual. I just assume I'm at annually and time it before winter unless something unusual happens.

I do not recommend the Binax Now brand of test kits. Third test in a row I've now had a faulty reading. I just assume I have it. My boss says if there's two visible line it's covid+, but these tests a solid second line and the upper is faint.
