    I'm O-.  I also approve this possibility.  Also because that blood type runs in my family.   I think both my Mom and my Grandfather are also O-.

    I also don't seem to get sick as much as other people do.   I might get a flu or bronchitus every 5-10 years.... the old cold.. but most of the time I don't even use sick days.   I wonder of O- prevents other diseases too?
    me too. i haven't had a cold or flu in at least 2 years. and i have two kids. 
    Blood type is one of those things I can never remember. 

    I need to write it down somewhere. 

    Same here.  Last time I had a general physical, I asked my doc if they had my blood type on record.  He said, "No, you'll have to make an appointment for lab work to find out."  I didn't express my exasperation but I was miffed.  I thought it was a simple thing to find out.  Wait- I have to go to a lab for that?  Screw that!

    My sinus infection led to covid test number three today. Ugh. 
    Funny (not funny), but I had the same thing last week.  Could have sworn I had this shit, but turned out to just be a cold turned sinus infection.  Nasal swab/antibody test were both negative :)
    Awesome.  Fingers crossed. I get sinus infections all the time but because it is a “symptom” I got tested again.  
    Same here, I was running a slight fever and was questioning if I was smelling/tasting right, ha. Just knew the tests were going to come back positive and was a bit bewildered when they didn’t! Feel great now so 👍

    My wife wasn't sure so I told her just to call her doc and he can look it up. it must be on record. 

    or at least I would think.

    Oh, that sucks!  I have a couple friends with similar bans and they hate it.  They still get calls from the donor organizations and have to keep telling them they cannot.

    I think you can order an inexpensive at-home kit to determine your blood type. No need to go to a lab. Google it.

    Will do.

    Back to COVID- someone I've known for several years came down with the virus.  I was surprised to took so long for at least one person I know well to get it.  He lives in another state, so we have not been in contact.  But what a bummer.  He had three weeks of his fever, hands shaking, loss of taste and smell.  Still has a bit of a hand tremor. 

    It's also breaking out worse than eve locally.  We had really good numbers for quite awhile.  I felt lucky.  Now it's getting bad.  Restaurants, butcher shop, and a few other business have closed down- at least temporarily- due to employees getting the virus.  I feel like it's closing in.  Very unsettling.  I'll be glad when we can get the vaccine.  Maybe be awhile yet.  I dread thinking what would happen if my wife or I got it.  Scary.

    Hang in there man. Although it is not great for our overall outlook, the number of people passing on the vaccine may make it available to those who want it faster.

    Thanks, JW.

    If it were available to me today, it would be a hard call.  We really need to to go to health care workers on the front line and the elderly first.  At 69 yrs of age and with a weakened immune system, I'm certainly concerned, but I also have the luxury of not working full-time and have been very cautious, so I'm not in a high priority group.  I'll be very happy when the vaccine becomes more widely available beyond those first two groups groups.

    4 days after 2nd Pfizer dose and I felt virtually nothing after first dose

    My roommate, however, called the second dose the "sickest he's been in years".  He had the exact same symptoms I had after my 1st dose, severe chills, GI symptoms, but the severe chills was definitely the most striking symptom for both of us.  It also hit him about 12-14 hours after the vaccine was administered.  Hes feeling better now about 24-36 hours out, so at least the symptoms are short lived.

    I got the first dose of the Moderna vaccine about 4 hours ago. I asked our facility head how many staff had signed up for it. He said right around 35%. So much for herd immunity.

    Congrats. My sister got the Moderna vaccine 2 weeks ago. She had no side effects. She is due for her second shot in a few weeks. I hope no side effects come from that either. Let us know how you are doing tonight.

    They should not be allowed to work close to patients during a pandemic then.

    But I guess we all are in the hands of the health care workers now - and at the same time could also be their bitch.

    I got the first dose of the Moderna vaccine about 4 hours ago. I asked our facility head how many staff had signed up for it. He said right around 35%. So much for herd immunity. 
    They should not be allowed to work close to patients during a pandemic then.

    But I guess we all are in the hands of the health care workers now - and at the same time could also be their bitch. 
    I am not in health care, I work in the maintenance department at a correctional facility.  Because of the amount of people in close contact, we were considered at high risk for infection and spread.

    Oh, sorry - I read your post wrong. I read it as you asking the hospital staff giving you the vaccine, like out of curiosity and got that answer.

    Sorry.
