Up for my 2nd Pfizer shot in 2 weeks. My 5 years younger wife is 1 week after me in the schedule. 756 Covid deaths in  Norway so far, I think we will mange to stay under 800 total.

A Kenyan doctor who became a vociferous opponent of the Covid-19 vaccine has succumbed to the virus, weeks after saying the jab was "totally unnecessary".

Dr Stephen Karanja, chairman of the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, advocated steam inhalation and hydroxychloroquine tablets.

One wonders how many members of the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association may likewise be mere quacks.

Had my second jab (Oxford/AZ) at 8.10 this morning. I felt a bit spaced-out and dopey for a few minutes afterwards (but, as I've mentioned before, my wife tells me that that is my normal state) and was not allowed to drive for 15 minutes. Feel fine now.

Excellent!

Nice.  0:)

914 deaths in Finland.

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural

Denmark is now probably the most restrictive country in the world as regards vaccines. In spite of the very small amount of registered problems, the J&J (8 mio doses had been ordered) was abolished today, and the AZ was already out since long, though now with the option for people to choose those two voluntarily, from some time in May. Only Pfizer and Moderna officially approved.

As a result, further delays. For me personally, apparently a vaccine before July 1st now. Can't say I enjoy waiting. I'll probably stick to the offcially approved ones, since the others might-might result in some problems with local vaccine passes etc. (??).

Situation here still stable in spite of the partial opening up. DK approaching 2500 fatalities, but now only 0 to 4 per day. That's a main reason for the vaccine abolishings. Sweden, who has seen no economical benefits compared to the other Nordic countries, is past 14,000 fatalities. I won't be going there at least until mid-2022.

BTW, experts pointing to that only an effective global vaccination programme will be able to finish the pandemic and virus spreading. So far, 86% of vaccines have been distributed to countries with a relatively high standard of living.

Thanks! I assume you refer to my first jab rather than the 915 (today's updated figure) deaths... 0:)

So sorry to hear of the delays in getting vaccinated in Denmark.  I'm due to get my second shot on or around the 15th of this month (Moderna).

Yes, thank you Karl. As I wrote in the "zoom" thread I have never zoomed...

I had my second Pfizer shot yesterday.  So far the only physical side effect is a sore arm.

The same for me. I spent last night with a sore arm, now it's almost over.

Just got my first jab of Pfizer-BioNTech Comirnaty. So far so good... ...I feel maybe a little burning in the arm, but it is very mild (an hour after the jab). I also feel a little "dizzy" maybe? We'll see what happens in the next 48 hours or so... ...the second jab will be July 31st (Finland uses 3 months between jabs strategy).

I suppose it's only otherwise healthy people, who can wait that long.

BTW congrats with the first jab.  :)
