I was in the hospital today to have microsuction on my ears, I had to wait about 40 minutes in the outpatients department. Every person there both patients and staff wore a mask. And despite the government recently no longer making social distanced seating in waiting areas mandatory everyone sat well spaced apart.

I've always liked your dry wit CG. Starting with the filet of fish reference long ago in a thread at the site issues section. Something about by chance did chance something other.

I still carry masks but mostly don't use them now.

Here in Washington State masks are still required while occupying medical and dental offices. No big deal. I chose to not behave in a manner that gives cause for anyone to be uncomfortable. Having to wear masks - sooner or later, this too shall pass.

There were cases of people developing blood clots with AstraZeneca, some resulting in deaths. And some people developing heart problems with Pfizer.

But you had more chance of being Ill or dying of the virus than the vaccine. But the people who sadly died of the vaccine more than likely would have been ok if they took their chances with the virus.

Like you say very much a lottery.

Several month ago one Russian politician died of covid, but not long before that, he bragged about getting 8 shots total, vaccines and boosters. did not help him much.

The virus mostly killed older and people with underlying health conditions, diabetes being one. But then their were cases of people who were young and super fit too.

Lots of people in intensive care who were unvaccinated asked can I get it now but they could not have it until after they recovered.

We have antiviral treatments now to help treat people who get covid, but have to be administered early on. And only available to the vulnerable here in the uk.

There have been some cases where the vaccine was administered incorrectly. The needle punched thru a blood vessel and medication got directly into the bloodstream, which is not how it's intended to be dispensed. It's supposed to go into the muscle where it can leech into the bloodstream slowly. Some of the more severe reactions have been traced to incorrect administration of the drug.

One technique for avoiding this situation is to aspirate the needle first (back the plunger out a bit) and look for blood. If there's blood, you've hit a vessel and you need to discard that syringe and start over.

You mean to back out the plunger to see if blood registers. Like they do when administering intravenous injections?
I think one of my vax hit my clavicle bone. The assistant closed her eyes while jabbing. Guess it could have been worse and plunged the needle into my neck

Yes, back out the plunger a bit first. Thanks for catching that. I've edited my post to show the clarification.

The assistant CLOSED HER EYES while jabbing? Yikes!!

My first two vax I went to VA Hospital. Second jab the shot site was very high on my shoulder muscle, it was sore a few days longer than the first jab. The 3rd "booster" was performed at CVS from the pharmacist. That gal noticed something wrong with the vial, tossed it and returned with another syringe. She would not comment what was wrong. That left me with little confidence.

Well at least she noticed it and tossed the vial before using it on you. Points for being observant I guess.
