    *** OFFICIAL *** "What will you do within the first month of being fully vaccinated?" thread

    My plans:

    Get haircut

    Visit friends (haven't seen any in person for over a year)

    Visit family (I haven't seen any in over a year except my parents)

    Start getting takeout food again

    Start doing in-person shopping again and seriously dial down the usage of these fail shopping services

    Go to a Dodgers game with Ben

    Go to a weekly home poker game I used to be part of

    Go to restaurants

    Get cavities filled at dentist

    Go to two non-urgent doctor appointments

    Have contractor over to house to do a bunch of work I've needed for awhile


    Also possible:

    Go to Las Vegas

    Go to Commerce (depends on then-current mask/food/drink policy)

    Go on small trip where we stay overnight somewhere



    Then of course I will take my Colorado trip in the summer & hopefully attend WSOP in fall if their mask policy isn't oppressive.

    I'm sorry Druff, you must not have got the memo, you're not allowed to do any of these things, see the vaccine only works if other people get it, kinda like the mask, so I'm afraid to tell you how gonna have to doomer it up in your basement for a couple more years, or you know, catch a cold

    Oh yeah, I forgot one other thing.

    Give this to Fauci and the CDC:

    Not going to lie, I was tossing around the idea of doing just that, because I'm noticing about 50% of people my age are getting awwwwwwful side effects which last about 24 hours.

    But I can't bring myself to throw away full protection in order to avoid one shitty day, so I'll just get it.

    I donít think the upside is worth the risk. Now fake news talking about a 3rd booster shot. WTF I thought 2nd was a booster. We will just continue to wear mask only when going in big box stores. I will let the dust settle and see how these vaccines effect people in next 6-12 months

    Obviously itís different for everyone and I understand your logic. For me the first shot was worse. The only problem I see is you will have an incomplete vaccination card. I donít know how things will work in the future with travel & what not, but that would be the downside imho.

    Maybe Iím just a cuck - but Iíll take my second shot and take 90% protection and fly over to Italy next summer while the rest of the non believers fight it out amongst themselves.

    Having just been to California and saw how you all are in an actual Lockdown now, and all that's going on out there, it's not surprising to see Druffs still in uber lockdown mode even mentally apparently lol..

    Have people or some of you all actually not been doing things because of actual fear of this Corona Virus. And I'm floored by that, except maybe if you have a legitimate reason to worry, underlying conditions, age but wow. I can see it seems some of you all really were living in a very tiny migration patterned and highly interactive life this past year but wow.

    Me ive actualy now been traveling all over, flying, on trains, across the country. I mean to think that this lol virus would scare me to actually have change the way I live my love day to day or month to month is just wow, absurd to think really.

    This is also why it's now the 'lol' Virus to me, in my head (purposefully minimizing it in my head..)

    Any travel we do this year will be driving. May go to Vegas for WSOP if virus has slowed down and no mask requirements. I am not against the mask for short periods of time but couldnít play long session of poker with a mask. I had uncommon side effect after 1st dose. 5 days after couldnít get out of bed for 4-5 hours in the morning. Felt like I was run over by a truck

    I really would love to make it to LV to take advantage of all the LV bookings I made starting 5/20 and going all the way into July. I even booked Caesar’s Palace (which I never do) when the algorithm was giving me comped for most nights. Be a shame to not take advantage of this shit. I booked as much as humanly possible. Plus, I would love to finally be in Vegas when the strip is not a total shit show and you can walk down it without the hustlers asking for money every ten steps. (Although that ship looks to be sailed)

    I have been basically hotel hopping in Atlantic City half the time last few months. It’s nice to have the hotel almost empty, not have to wait for food, etc. They do open rooms in clusters which is kind of annoying. Because of the cheap rooms a lot of young people split one and just drink, smoke and blast music all fucking night long. Guess I am getting old.

    Also now they are talking about a 3rd dose. When does it end 4 or 5 doses? We will just try and be careful but will go back to eat in restaurants on occasion. Say I get 2nd dose get very sick then they start saying oh no get 3rd booster dose (they are taking about 3rd already) As I said earlier Fuck this shit.Media is holding back plenty of information about the vaccines. I feel pretty good about having 1st dose. I feel waiting on the sidelines in till more is known isnít a bad choice

    Can we all just say a prayer for our Canadian brothers who are back in a useless lockdown while giving their police even more power to rule over them, basically stop and frisk on steroids and if you haven't got a reason they deem essential you are getting fined!

    If we did that here it would be called racism!

    Sad!

    Yeah I've had one in my life -- the year Ben was born, because the flu can kill infants.

    Other than that, no. Flu isn't very dangerous to healthy middle-aged people. Plus the shot only has like 50% efficacy, so fuck it.

    COVID is a different story. In fact, a study of the biggest difference between flu danger and COVID danger showed that there are two points where they're farthest apart -- in infants (flu is substantially worse) and people in their late 40s through mid 50s (COVID is substantially worse). After that the flu starts catching up to COVID regarding being deadly.

    So basically the "it's just the flu" line is least true around my age.

    I canít put a finger on why I totally flipped about this vaccine. My fiancť and I were the 1st ones in the county to get shot when they opened over 50. Something just donít seem right. Letís see how things play out
