Looking For Quacks In The Pavement

Is this the one?

As of late May I’m officially “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19 with the Pfizer product.

For what that’s worth, given that breakthroughs are a thing and mutations like Delta are a thing and even without the variants (ha ha, Loki humor) the vaccine was never a sure thing, never mind the uncertainty about the duration of the protection overall. So now, every time I have to go out among people, especially now that so many people have simply decided that masks are “for morons,” I find myself asking: Is this the one? Is this the breath that inhales the virus and gets me killed?

Not a healthy mindset, but it’s the only way my brain knows how to operate, so here we are. I absolutely do not get out much, no. And after a year and a half or so of this, I’m breaking down faster than ever.

But what else can I do? Ignoring reality isn’t the option. Blissful ignorance isn’t my style. So, here we remain.

Hopefully.

    Ugh. I can relate. My dad can’t drive right now (medical issue), so for the past 12 days, I’ve had to take my parents to a bunch of medical appointments and do all the shopping. Just going in the grocery feels really overwhelming. 🙁

    The vaccine will prevent you from getting killed. What happens is that the virus gets into your airways (those are lined with IgA antibodies), but the antibodies made from the vaccine (IgG) go and swarm the virus — so for the most part, delta infections in vaccinated people can be like a flu, but NOT like death
