    Neonred got a reaction from laylalex in All Things Coronavirus (Part 2)   
    Just to be clear, I was rather reluctant to get the vaccine initially.  Certainly did not want to be among the first to get it and wasn't sure that I would get it at all.  My son was the first in my circle to get it, back in January as he works in a top teaching hospital in Portland OR.  He had the typical reactions that the younger folks are having.  My mother was next, in February, and she really had no negative reaction.  I got mine late February/early March with no real reaction.  My wife has decided not to get the vaccine despite my "gentle" encouragement.  
     
    I'm an easy going, live and let live kind of guy.  I think I know what should be done, but of course I feel like everyone needs to make an informed personal decision.  I can respect InhaleExhale's decision.  I just feel some of what they are writing is not correct.  I have been on several seminars/webinars with great doctors discussing current vaccination info.  Seems there is a lot of misinformation out there that just keeps getting repeated.

    Looks to me like you are confusing pathogens and irritants.  Irritants are great at producing an inflammatory response, but they don't have to be pathogens.
     
    Of course these vaccines have not been given full approval, but they have been approved for emergency use as the COVID pandemic has been labeled an emergency.
     
    I also understand that the FDA is not really in any hurry to provide the full approval that you are asking about.  The vaccine is in use and millions of doses have been given so at this point this doesn't seem to be priority #1.

    Lucky for me I have 400 amp service, which is 2 200 amp panels.
     
    LOL.  Some years ago we had friends visiting in their motorhome.  We plugged them into our system.  Also was doing laundry, kids taking showers, water heater going, submersible pump in the well going, and maybe the pool pump working.  Tripped one 200 amp main breaker.  My friend commented "hate to see your electric bill if you can trip a 200 amp breaker"

    Here is the first glaring error.  The mRNA of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines instructs cells to produce the spike protein which is NOT a pathogen.  The spike protein is simply a group of amino acids on the outside of the virus that allows it to attach and interact to certain human cells.
     
    The J&J vaccine goes about this in a different way, using DNA inside a live adenovirus cell.  It also instructs some of the bodies cells to produce the spike protein.
     
    Another company, Novavax, has a different approach.  Their vaccine, although not yet approved as they are still in phase 3 trials, contains cultivated spike proteins that are injected.  This vaccine has probably the most promising future for keeping up with new variants.

    We don't have gas service at our house.  Several years ago they did run a line down from Tampa, but very few homes are connected.  Mostly business that are connected although some of the new gated communities have it now for cooking and hot water.
