Honestly, I’m nervous about receiving the J&J vaccine over Moderna or Pfizer because some of the long-haulers have symptoms very similar to my autoimmune condition. So I’m terrified of even a mild infection worsening my pain or fatigue.

That said, I wouldn’t turn it down.

Also, there is evidence that J&J efficacy may improve significantly by 90 days after vaccination.

The J&J was still less effective in the US than the other two. But it is still very effective - and of course appears 100% effective at preventing hospitalization and death.

ETA: But I read reporting that there is evidence it might get up to 90% efficacy by 90 days after vaccination.

I don’t not remember this from the movie Ishtar. Of course the only things I remember from that movie are a desert, a camel, and being bored.

More like Jewish Mardi Gras. Supposed to get so drunk you don’t remember the difference between how evil Haman was and how blessed Mordechai was.

I'm officially teaching a course on health coverage equity in the fall and I'm going to be blaming you when I'm trying to create a syllabus and grade papers.
