Re: Covid Vaccine: Will you get it?

As a child I had 'flu in the early 80s pandemic. It don't know how deadly it was (none of my classmates died, so not so bad) but it made many of us very sick. It didn't affect adults so badly.

I remember laying my head down on my desk on Friday afternoon... and then it was Sunday evening and somehow I was in bed.

I had some kind of respiratory disease last year around March. Out for three weeks. Even my wife was taken out and she rarely is ill. But I tested negative for covid antibodies. I did have the 'flu jab this year as my client offered it free to all workers (not just employees). If they hadn't, I'd've paid for it. 'flu can ruin your day.

I saw on BAG that the over 50s are now being processed in registration order, so I hope to get my jab in the next month or so.

In the first 18 years of school, I missed exactly three days, as I found three spots of chicken-pox on my torso (my sisters had is FAR worse), otherwise, no other sick days.

None afterwards, either.

Tom
What? One day off per spot?

That's ridiculous, it would give ordinary people years off

Never have had a flu shot, never have had the flu (nor even a cold).

Probably have had COVID, albeit without symptoms, will find out on the 29 if I have antibodies.

Tom
You never had a cold? Really Tom, you're a phenomenon and should be studied in the most prestigious schools. I guess there's some else here as super powerful as you, both are amazing human beings who put us all to shame.

He had to repeat a few years. He must have graduated Grade 12 when he was 24.

(NB in his defense the term ‘school’ in N. America often means all forms of schooling up to and including post graduate)

I never had a day off school due to sickness ever, the only childhood illness I had was chicken pox and I managed to get that during the school holidays.
I think I got the certificate awarded for maximum attendance every year I was there.


I’ve had the odd cold here and there but not many and I have never had the flu.

I guess some people are just lucky to have very robust immune systems.

I now take an immunosuppressive medication for an autoimmune condition which in theory makes me vulnerable to infection but so far I have had nothing.

Your immune system had nobody left to fight but itself!

I'd expect him to be a clothes-denier, too. Not just a hand-washing and hydrogel-denier.

But if anything gives me his immunity, I'll do whatever he does!

Except the steak shouldn't move anymore..
