Fell asleep Friday afternoon. Got out of bed Sunday. Tested positive.

Breathlessness and extreme tiredness with a low tier, persistent cough, have been my symptoms, largely. Entire family got it - I was last - so I'm last to shift it. So far, so good. Triple vaxxed.
Good to hear its not too servere and hope it lifts fast amd fully for you. If this was your first time you were in the last 15% of people in thr uk to succumb so well done if so.

I only have a lingering need to blow my nose every few hours and some days brainfog happens but somtimes i wonder if on those days i'm just not bored and frustrated which seems to have a similar effect on attention span...

I hate needles!
Me too, in the UK the Teburculosis vaccine given at the age of about 12 years old is delivered in a syringe with nine needles on the end which leaves a permanant scar.

Nightmare fuel. The nurses had to headlock me to inject that without me flinching and breaking them off in my arm.

I still don't like them but compared to that one a normal needle is not too bad.

That wasn't for TB. That's the BCG you might have gotten in early secondary school, but they stopped giving in 2005.

There is/was a 5, 6 (possibly had 9) punctures vaccine though.
It's probably the 10-12 year old vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, Haemophiles influenzae type b
(Has a slightly different vaccine schedule in the US and Canada, and I actually think that I only know the old schedule for the UK)

damn, the things I remember from working in that ☝industry so long ago, and I only wrote some of the software to track who got what when.

Wow awesome! It was probably the combined tetanus but all i know is everyone my age calls that scar the TB jab so its likely my school educated us wrong :-D it was around the time the MMR jab was getting a bad rap so calling it a combi was probably being avoided to stop morons from being put off.

Ya the wife called me a baby but I still stuck it out and got my booster. The after effects were not bad a little tired and a sore arm but it's worn off quickly.

I don't think I would have an issue stabbing something else with needles just myself. I also hate the feel of cotton balls.
