Yup. Then I got smallpox and died.

Tried it in my next life with polio, didn’t have much better luck.

Smartened up this time around, listened to my body as it said “hey, Darwin isn’t just about the fittest, dumb luck factors in too” and got an MMR vaccine as an infant, with plans for the C19 vaccine. Figure I’ll live longer than some.
Yet you were reborn and the immune system fought off it well. You should be grateful.

So did you get vaccinated?

Nah. I attract them on daily basis with my strong immune system.

You also must have been vaccinated?

For my age group I will patiently wait until my body adopts to adverse conditions of this world. My immune system tells me everyday, we shall overcome it. It’s a good positive sign. No need to inject any shit in my blood stream. Does anyone else listen to their immune system too?


I believe in getting immunity the old-fashioned way: By letting a bat virus take control of my lungs and turn my face into a disgusting plague fountain while my immune system desperately Googles 'how to make spike protein antibodies'.

You almost got it right except for the bats part that I don’t stay in contact with.

Re: When can we take covid vaccine

Saw my Hausarzt this week, in other routine matters.

Message on this issue more or less:
Wait and see how and when vaccine available will be.

It also involved some skinny dipping. We managed to write a song about it laters, so it was worth it..

It’s a matter of administering it properly and not overdosing.

It cleans the digestive system.

Actually, have you not heard of the COVID cocktail?

Quinine, according to some, fights the virus...
Alcohol sanitizes...
Botanicals have random other good properties...

Tonic water has quinine...
Gin has alcohol + botanicals...

add a slide of cucumber + a slice of lemon... and you also have the vitamins!

Re: When can we take covid vaccine

Kanton Zürich is now speeding up. Just got a call from my GP that they will have some badges of vaccin available and if I´d be willing to go to Winterthur in April. Yes, of course, so now first jab scheduled, second to come in May.

No idea, not age based but I was classified as risk group by my GP.

Re: When can we take covid vaccine

Things seem to be progressing a bit better finally.

Neuchâtel is starting vaccinations in GP surgeries and pharmacies today.
They are starting with just one part of the canton initially but will roll it out to the whole canton in April when they receive bigger deliver of the vaccines.

Very happy for you Roegner.

Supply problems. Not anticipating that a vaccine would be available so quickly.
so basically lack of organization/urgency by the authorities... I think everyone knew supply would always be constrained.

In the US you can now get the jab in the pharmacy and I have friends in under-developed countries in Africa that clearly know when they are getting vaccinated (vaccines delivered through humanitarian organizations)

Re: When can we take covid vaccine

We have given it some thought, considered pros and cons with my wife and today we have officially registered for COViD vaccination in our canton online at: https://ag.impfung-covid.ch/

It’s easy-peasy straightforward process that can also be done in EN. The confirmation came via SMS in form of:

“Hello NAME/SURNAME,
We are happy to inform you that your registration is complete. As soon as new vaccination dates are available, you will receive a text message containing the invitation for your two vaccinations. You can find up-to-date information and a list of documents required for vaccination on the website of the responsible health authority.”

Let’s all do the right thing

Re: When can we take covid vaccine

Zurich opened registration this morning. Vaccine appointment given by groups, currently 75+.

Ticino opened 65 and up without chronic illness.

Seems like things are moving.
