Shanghai Disneyland will close in effort to contain coronavirus

Posted Friday, January 24, 2020 11:49 AM | Contributed by Tekwardo

Shanghai Disneyland will close its gates on Saturday in an effort to stop the spread of a new SARS-like virus that has killed 26 people and sickened at least 881, primarily in China. It’s not known when the theme park may reopen.

Both my wife and I had the Pfizer vaccine. I was a week behind her. It's been four weeks since my second dose. We both had a sore arm after both shots. I had a slight headache and went to bed early the next day after the second dose. She had a reaction after her second dose and had a sinus headache for a little more than a week.

Its just the difference of how the vaccine effects people.

Got Pfizer #2 Saturday. First dose gave me a sore arm for about a day. Second dose hammered me on Sunday - could barely lift my arm over my head, and spent the day in bed with body aches everywhere and a screaming headache. Possible fever but I didn't have the energy to look for my thermometer. I'd read it was better to avoid painkillers so I toughed it out. By Monday I was fine although the sore arm is lingering - similar to what I remember from my last tetanus booster. Age 55.

My parents (mid-80s) both got Pfizer with no issues.

Sore arms are pretty common for most vaccines, as far as I can tell. Mine feels like someone beat the **** out of me, but that was true for the first one as well. Last night was rough for Moderna #2. At around 3 a.m., about 15 hours after the shot, I started with a fever. Woke up at 5 with chills. When I got up to take Simon to school at 8, the fever was gone, but of course I'm tired out of my mind. Meh, I can roll with it. I haven't been sick in over a year with anything other than allergies, so I fully expected this.

The advice I've read about painkillers is to not pre-treat before you get the shot but it's ok to treat the symptoms if you have them.

I had heard that hydrating before and after helps as well. With Pfizer #1 I had a low grade fever, body aches, and a slight sore throat for about 48 hours. It was not all that dissimilar from my early COVID symptoms. #2 resulted in my being incredibly fatigued late in the next day. A good night of sleep knocked it out. I had a sore arm with both but nothing that I couldn’t tolerate.

Pfizer #1 did almost nothing to me. Arm was a little sore, like someone punched me, for the evening. Next day was fine. Felt like I might have had a minor headache the next day, but not really.

Son got Moderna #1 and said he had the sore arm for a day or so.

Wife got Moderna #1 and her arm hurt like hell for a day or so then she was fine. But the real fun came a week later (this past weekend) when her arm got a huge lump in it, was VERY sore, bright red and literally hot to the touch. Did some research and found this is known as "COVID Arm" and is most common among women who get the Moderna shot. It's not as bad as it was at first, but it's still sore and a little swollen 5 days later (12 after the shot).

I can't remember if I shared my experience yet so here it is again if not... Pfizer #1 gave me a sore arm for a few days, no worse than my yearly flu shot. I was slightly unwell the next day, but it wasn't enough to stop me from going to Universal for Mardis Gras the next evening. My wife just had the sore arm.

Not really looking forward to the next one and hoping we both skate by unscathed. I am taking the day off to see the Space X launch and getting the shot later in the day.

Not much to write home about for us; Pfizer #1 a couple weeks ago but other than mildly sore arms we were left unscathed. 13 days to go until #2.

Just gave a department tour to a potential new freshman visiting our campus; her mom is immunocompromised, and she was tearing up when she described getting her first shot just 3 days ago (Pfizer). I mean, in a pandemic this is what we talk about on department tours these days.

But seriously, she cannot get any vaccines because of the old method of "just a spoonful of dead virus will do the trick"...but with the mRNA tech, she was able to feel what it's like to become vaccinated to something that could take her out.

It was a quite a moment with her and her family.

The positive stories we can share are really meaningful.

I'm not submitting this as News since it's just coming from a WDW fan site, but as of April 8 Walt Disney World will (slightly) relax their mask policy.

Dry humping is officially within reach.

Updated CDC guidance on hygiene theater. Made me think of this thread when I saw it.

Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) studies have been conducted to understand and characterize the relative risk of SARS-CoV-2 fomite transmission and evaluate the need for and effectiveness of prevention measures to reduce risk. Findings of these studies suggest that the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection via the fomite transmission route is low, and generally less than 1 in 10,000, which means that each contact with a contaminated surface has less than a 1 in 10,000 chance of causing an infection

People can be infected with SARS-CoV-2 through contact with surfaces. However, based on available epidemiological data and studies of environmental transmission factors, surface transmission is not the main route by which SARS-CoV-2 spreads, and the risk is considered to be low. The principal mode by which people are infected with SARS-CoV-2 is through exposure to respiratory droplets carrying infectious virus. In most situations, cleaning surfaces using soap or detergent, and not disinfecting, is enough to reduce risk. Disinfection is recommended in indoor community settings where there has been a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 within the last 24 hours. The risk of fomite transmission can be reduced by wearing masks consistently and correctly, practicing hand hygiene, cleaning, and taking other measures to maintain healthy facilities.

Just got back from getting my J&J shot. So far haven't noticed anything outside of normal soreness that comes with any shot. Hopefully nothing changes because I have to work tonight and I don't want a limp arm while I am trying to make CAT5 connections in small spaces. Although it could make for a good laugh.

Age 45, no side effects from either Pfizer shot. Yay!

As for "Vaccine Passports" what exactly are they? Just the little cardboard card with stickers that they give you? Because those look extremely easy to counterfeit. I've been told they are easy to find online.

If that's the case, I suppose I need to be ready for the questions with mine. I got my first shot in Nevada and my second in Ohio. I'm sure that could trigger scrutiny.

They spelled it "PHIZER" on mine, so I've got that going for me.

From what I have seen, the vaccine passports would be electronic through cell phones and paper for those who do not have cell phones.

Some issues involved are healthcare privacy and having a variety of systems that are already in development.

I think your vaccine may have come from Wish.

After a year of spirited debates about everything, I'm relieved that we're all at least doing our best to get vaccinated. High five!

High fives are a gateway to dry humping.

Pfizer #1 just gave me a slightly sore arm. Pfizer#2 however gave me the shakes bad enough it woke up my wife, along with a low grade fever. Took a couple of tylenol and went back to bed. Shakes and fever gone by early afternoon.

This came across my feed:

Nearly half of new US virus infections are in just 5 states

"New York, Michigan, Florida, Pennsylvania and New Jersey together reported 44% of the nation’s new COVID-19 infections in the latest available seven-day period."

That's pretty nuts. But it also made me think about Texas - which has been running wild for about 5 weeks now. And if you look at the number of cases, they really haven't moved during that time. In fact they've gone down in the last 30 days:

Rationalize away.

Not sure about Texas, but the other mentioned states all came here to Florida for Spring Break and then went back.
