  • Hopefully, that's shot with a vaccine. In the current atmosphere where old folks like us are expendable, one can't be too sure.

      Hopefully your invitation is not for the Soylent Green Vaccination Centre

        You know, In my minds eye I always pictured JRorick as being in his 20s..Age on these forums is very hard to predict based on the posts. But we are all expendable, we just need to stay helpful to those near to us so that they keep us around!

          Heston had some great movies. He was fantastic in this one and in Omega man where he further developed on variations of that planet of the apes character. "Get your stinking paws of me you damn dirty ape".

                      If that's the case, before you "go", can I have the contact info so I can volunteer a few to receive the same email?

                      • One of the other docs in our group felt so badly with flu-like symptoms the day after her second dose that she cancelled her afternoon patients and went home. She was once ranked about 200th in the women's ATP rankings (tennis) so is kind of a tough customer. One of our MAs went home for the same reason (but she's one to more easily shirk a task.)

                          • Mild flu-like symptoms 14 hours after the shot. Achy, a little out of sorts. And some chills, no fever.

                            • Still a little bit achy today but nothing some ibuprofen or Tylenol won’t help.

                                Health disparities have been well documented in the medical literature. In 2002, the Institute of Medicine published Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care, a book-length study that concluded that: “A large body of published research reveals that racial and ethnic minorities experience a lower quality of health services, and are less likely to receive even routine medical procedures than are White Americans.”
                                Citing numerous examples, the authors wrote: “Significantly, these differences are associated with greater mortality among African-American patients.”
