americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

I got inside information that Costco JUST managed to get their vaccine scheduling site up.

This is the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, one dose only.

No membership is needed. It is free to anyone.

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

at least in my area, there are still a ton of appointments available

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

The CDC today (Apr 13) called for a "pause" on the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to six cases of blood clots out of 6.8 million doses.

this seems foolish to me, but, until the CDC calls off the pause, you won't be able to get it.

FDA is saying the Johnson & Johnson pause could last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks

I'm pissed

@john I'll just go down a pick up a 24 pack of vaccine I guess.

@squeakypancakes it pays for itself in 84 years

re: americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

@john OH MY GOD thank you so much

I've gotten a vaccine myself, but hadn't managed to get one for my livingmate yet and was starting to worry I wasn't gonna be able to get them one until next century, now I've got an appointment on Monday for them :D

@holly you're welcome! :D

@john posted this with a short message on my snapchat and got banned. What a weird thing to happen. Thanks for the info regardless.

@john @courtney I was wondering what was going on there! I booked my spouse an appointment a few weeks back and was checking for others when the site just... had to lie down a while. I’d love to know what went into the decision to revamp the site in the middle of Vaccine Spring

re: americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

@john NB the site seems to be down.

re: americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

@dredmorbius it's up for me, try again?

re: americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

re: americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

@dredmorbius bizarre, maybe you're connecting with a different company server that is down.

i won't lie, i know that costco has had issues rolling out their scheduling site

re: americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? important information, please boost! 

@john CDNs and hosting these days often provide more generally reliable, but regionally inconsistent, results.

I suspect that's what's happening here, good to be advised of that.

@john I noted that these were all in women of menstruating age IIRC. I'd be curious if they were on any kind of birth control. Blood clots are a known side effects of numerous forms of hormonal birth control, but nobody's banned them. That's an acceptable risk!

@john :birdsite: link for some numbers twitter.com/angie_rasmussen/st

"For perspective, here are some numbers:
1 in 1,000,000: J&J vaccine
1 in 3,000: oral contraceptives
1 in 5: hospitalized COVID-19 patients

As someone who got the J&J vaccine 8 days ago, and who took oral contraceptives for 20 years, I’ll take these odds."

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@stelepami calling for a pause is a disaster. now we have to deal with

1. people who just don't want a vaccine

2. QAnon anti-vaxxers

3. regular anti-vaxxers

4. people who think J&J is inferior to other vaccines

5. and NOW people who think it will kill you

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@john Supergood because now Europe won't get the J&J delivery either and we're already not using AstraZeneca because of this bullshit blood clot reason. I will be vaccinated in 2022 and Justin will have left by then. 😭

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@Juju well shit

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@john ONE PERSON OUT OF 7 MILLION PEOPLE WHO GOT J&J DIED! This is so infuriating.
18 out of 34 Million who got Astra Zeneca died. The fuck is wrong with the people making decisions?!

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@Juju meanwhile, i could find information about 4 people who died after taking sputnik v and haven't read about any recurring serious side effects, yet the West is basically refusing to even talk about it

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@john I'm so close to going on another rant about blood clots and birth control and women just being expected to take it with a MUCH HIGHER risk and no one gives a shit.

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@Juju yeah i don't understand

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@Juju @john this was one of the major reasons I got so angry this morning I needed a nap.

I guess the clots associated with birth control are usually in the legs or lower body and these are in the brain, but I've also seen references to studies that show these sorts of clots happen in covid itself.

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@stelepami @john Also: 1 dead person in 7 million vs how many people getting fucking Covid and dying because they're not getting vaccinated?
I HATE IT HERE

americans: do you still need a covid vaccine? IMPORTANT NOTE 

@Juju in fact, just the other day, mexico bought a bunch of sputnik doses because J&J had failed to deliver on time due to production problems
