More like an influenza than an influencer.
Yesterday the FDA gave Pfizer EUA approval for 12 through 15 year olds. And Pfizer is anticipating requesting EUA approval for 2 through 11 year olds in September. And thus the march to normalcy continues.
OkayJust a little pinprickThere’ll be no more (scream)But you may feel a little sick
I’m not a big fan of needles, but neither am I of respirators. Also the shot takes a tenth of second, the respirator can go months.
The Johnson and Johnson vaccine left my arm a little bit sore for a few hours, then I realized the soreness had gone away. I felt a bit tired and achy the next day, but still went to work, was fine after that.
I had some reservations about a vaccine that is only conditionally approved on an emergency basis (and they did put that temporary pause on it for a while), but getting stuck with a needle wasn’t really a concern.
When I was a kid, a long time ago, our pediatrician gave us our shots himself. He reduced the sting of the needle by slapping the injection site before inserting the needle. I never remember feeling the injections, instead it was, “oh no, now the doctor is going to hit me!”
You know; at first I thought it was about Monty’s vacation and couldn’t figure out the joke… :-)
I used to take a lot of candid pictures at Renaissance Faires. The next week I would bring the best ones back and locate the subjects, who got to see themselves at the perhaps the best 1/60th second of their lives. :)
“Spinal column”… Bahahaha!
This was sure to bring on jolly comments.
Today’s ‘toon points out a sad fact about the way many people’s minds work. They’d rather listen to personal acquaintances in their immediate vicinity than experts who really know what they’re talking about. The worst examples of this are tight religious communities, where deviation from the narrow range of acceptable behavior will bring on disapproval, condemnation, and possibly shunning.
The needles they’re using for the vaccine are so sharp, I felt nothing at the time of injection. A few hours later my arm was sore and I felt cranky, but that was it for the 1st one. I’m still eager to get the 2nd.
the trick is to relax your arm and not look at the needle, you’ll barely feel a thing
Blew it again, Monty. :)
That was just the anticipation, not the shot.
Now. That’s a job i would love to do!
The shots hurt a lot less than when I was a kid. Still have problems with the sight of a needle though.
Nice job, there, Monty. Maybe you could be the new Poster Boy for anti-vaxers….
You big baby!
A Li’l Pin-Prick…there’ll be no more AAAUUUGGHHH…but you may feel a little sick…
And now he’s become comfortably numb
