  1. Here is some excellent news that might cheer you up: https://apple.news/A4Edo22koT5WC5OB3drGbNQ Pfizer is highly effective for “at least” 6 months (and counting), and is “fully” effective against the more worrisome South Africa variant.
  2. Don’t come to any of the salt lake county clinics if you want to take advantage of it. No picture policy
  3. Does anyone know if Jared Hess and Tyler Measom are active believing members?
  4. I hate to spoil it for anybody but...Mark Hofmann did it.
  5. Unfortunate but not surprising. It has been known (In the medical field anyway) that obesity reduces efficacy of probably all vaccines. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4547886/
  6. The CDC suggests a “minimal interval of 14 days”, so yes, they are just being cautious.
  7. That is true. It is not just shingrix though, it is contraindicated to have any vaccine within 2 weeks of a Covid vaccine. I’m not exactly sure why as Covid vaccines are not live vaccines. I am guessing it is because they have emergency approval only and are still being studied, so they don’t want people confusing side effects from other vaccines for side effects from Covid vaccines when reporting to the CDC. Maybe the reasoning is similar for other medical procedures.
  8. That is interesting. I can’t think of any reason why the Covid vaccine (or any vaccine) would be discouraged before or after any medical procedure. Did they explain why?
  9. Another interesting side-effect to be aware of (much less concerning than the one you noted): My wife receiver her first dose of Moderna. 2 days later she had a tender lump in her breast by her armpit and felt a little feverish. She is still breastfeeding and thought it was mastitis because she had mastitis previously and it presented very similarly. She went to her provider just as a precaution and her doctor didn't think it was mastitis and was very concerned and ordered a mammogram. My wife couldn't sleep for 2 nights with anxiety. We were both relieved to read this article w
  10. It is interesting because this is a very common response I get from 70+ individuals coming back for their second shot. Many of them half-jokingly wonder if they got a first shot at all because they had zero reaction at all and didn't even feel the needle go in. Pfizer seems to be more mild in terms of side effects than Moderna from my experience vaccinating the public. For whatever reason, older individuals tend to have fewer side-effects than younger individuals like myself.
  11. If you google “Christian warrior”, you will find that the warrior mentality is very popular throughout Christianity. I remember going to a non-denominational Christian conference on addiction recovery where being a “warrior” was the central theme of the conference.
  12. I don’t think that disgruntled or disillusioned ex-members speaking out against their previous church is unique to Mormonism.
  13. Here is what you said: “All I can say is I'm ashamed of my white race...” Your “white race“ includes you and all other whites. Many try to address “white privilege” with white self-shame. I don’t think that is the right answer.
  14. This strikes me as racism. I can’t change the way I look, and I’m not ashamed of it. White nationalism hardly define our race. We should be focused on lifting any underprivileged up, not self-shaming because we happen to be born white. Don’t buy into that toxic baloney.
