Taco Bell Injection COVID Party

Posted on Thursday, September 21st, 2023

Dave!I'm just going to be brutally honest: I am getting all the vaccines. I 1000% believe in the same science that's eradicated polio and allows me to have a phone /slash/ computer /slash/ camera in my pocket. So long as there's something that is tested and proven to help people survive COVID, I'm here for it. Especially as I get older and COVID keeps roaring back with new levels of hospitalizations and death.

I've got cats that are counting on me to be alive.

Today I got the new 2023 Super COVID Vaccine. The only reason I waited so long is that there were no appointments available when it arrived here on Tuesday. They don't have Pfizer in my neck of the woods yet, so I snatched up Moderna SpikeVax. My first dose was Pfizer so I've gotten all my boosters from their releases... but I researched and found that's not necessary any more.

This was COVID mRNA vaccine dose No. 6 for me and the easiest one yet. Zero arm soreness. Zero reaction.

I hope I didn't get a dud!

Next Friday they're having flu vaccinations at work and I'm getting that one too.

And when I'm eligible for the RSV and Pneumonia vaccines, I'm fucking rolling up on those two as well. If there's something out there to add any measure of protection in my declining years so I have better quality of life or... you know... don't end up dead? Bet that I'm in line for it.

Interesting to note that I was told by the nice lady jabbing me that there are no more boosters. It's just an annual COVID shot like the flu shot. I didn't know that. I'm a bit concerned at this though. Last I read they were worried that vaccine boosters weren't lasting the 6 months it took to get the next one... now they're lasting a YEAR? Here's hoping.

And then...

I never eat at Taco Bell anymore because I just can’t afford it, but I needed something to distract me from the fact that I’ve got THE DEVIL’S mRNA RUNNING THROUGH MY VEINS. My lunch with no drink: $18. Wow...

Remember when Taco Bell was affordable food?

It doesn't help that I have to pay for meat I have them take off.

But hey... it was delicious as always.

    I just got Covid, flu, and Hepatitis B yesterday. I had a little bit of a rough night due to freezing cold body and burning hot face plus fatigue this morning, but I’m better now and scrambling to catch up. Next week I’m getting Prevnar 20 (2nd pneumonia strain) and RSV. I don’t want to live to be really old, not after what my parents went through, but I also don’t want to die of something terrible that was preventable.

    I have a hard time believing this new COVID vaccine will be effective an entire year. Maybe they are banking on the most infectious period being the colder months similar to the flu? This is why I will continue to mask indoors regardless.

    As for Taco Bell, they should absolutely let people swap the beef for beans and/or rice without charging extra and pocketing the savings. Unfortunately the only place I’m aware of that actually will lower your price if you remove toppings is Chick-Fil-A.

      See… that’s where I’m at. The initial boosters were rated to lose effectiveness steadily after a month or two, which is why were were getting them every six months. What’s changed? Given my breathing issues, I would feel much safer sticking with the six-month window, unless they’re now doing something different that they last longer? I dunno.
