    My sister got her second injection this past Thursday. Her reaction to the second one was really bad. I almost took her to the ER bad. Friday she felt ill. Saturday she felt extremely ill. Yesterday I thought I might be picking out a casket. Today she's totally fine.

    I'm on the list, but no dates yet.

    Of course it has. Most of the world doesn't have the economic muscle to run the same kind of social security program that an industrialized country can afford. If they want to.

    Perhaps my favorite acronym. I learned it from Larry Niven's Ringworld series, where did you stumble over it?

    My dad got his second injection last Thursday. He says he had no reaction to it at all.

    I read that but don't remember the acronym. I think it's on Kindle though ... I'll go searching ...

    EDIT: Oops. Didn't read that one. I read Starship Troopers and Stranger in a Strange Land. Guess I have a new book on my list.

    Walk into a Shriner's hospital for children. All the guys in silly hats are working for free. In fact, they are likely to be paying the hospital in addition to working there for free.

    Lots of examples of stuff like this in the world.

    A few years ago, I worked at the local aquarium cleaning scum off the dolphin tanks for free.

    It would be interesting to know who is NOT planning to get vaccinated (while being eligible) and the reason(s) behind such decision. But knowing the amount of bashing users can get here in SB I doubt any denier would have the courage to come forward and express his/her feelings.

    To be clear, myself I look forward to get vaccinated although based on my age (42), condition (generally healthy) and the rate of vaccinations here in EU (quite low) it looks like I won't get it any time soon.
