    Moderna here. At least they work. :)
    The weird in my case is that I was fine and only started feeling bad 3 days AFTER the second jab.

    If I feel worse in 3 days, call the crematorium.

    So update on the Covid thing with me, got my second shot the other day, Pfizer, done and done. Also, this:

    Even Teletubbies are getting COVID vaccines

    Teletubbies took to Twitter on Wednesday to share some important news: They've been vaccinated, and they're ready for "a Tubby hot summer."

    In a set of photos, the four humanoid creatures made popular by the British children's TV show grip their "COVID-19 Vaccination Tubby Cards," which display information about their "tubby vaccines." The cards -- presumably a public service announcement for getting vaccinated -- reveal facts about the Teletubbies that perplexed some Twitter users.

    For one, each card lists the same birthday for all Teletubbies: Feb. 20, 2003. The date, which makes them 18 years old, is also six years after the Teletubbies premiered on the BBC. One user admitted being bothered by the news for more than one reason: "Not only was the show originally out six years before this date, but if this is their birthday, I'm only a day older than them and that makes me so very uncomfortable," the tweet reads.

    Another discrepancy that caught the eye of Twitter users had to do with the shots listed on the cards. The cards conveyed that the Teletubbies had received two shots of "Noo-nson & Noo-nson," one on July 1, 2021, and another on July 22. "NOOO YOU'RE ONLY SUPPOSED TO GET 1 DOSE OF THAT ONE," wrote a user. "How did they get a second dose on a day that hasn't even happened yet," wrote another.

    Is this a North American certificate?

    No, it is British, but it's not real anyway.

    As you know The Teletubbies are a British creation.

    What this has anything to do with it?
    The vaccination card has a north American date format.
    Is the particular card actually British or are you saying it is because the TB originated in Britain?

    I think that it is based on the US certificate:

    Which is strange...because the news was first posted to Twitter by the BBC.

    Here in Canada our certificates are small enough to fit into a wallet, they are credit card/business card size.

    The US one won't fit in a wallet, you are not supposed to fold it, and you are supposed to somehow "have it with you at all times"...

    Like.... :confused:

    Two doses of Pfizer, AstraZeneca shots effective against Delta variant, study finds

    Two doses of Pfizer or AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine are nearly as effective against the highly transmissible Delta coronavirus variant as they are against the previously dominant Alpha variant, a study published on Wednesday showed.

    Officials say vaccines are highly effective against the Delta variant, now the dominant variant worldwide, though the study reiterated that one shot of the vaccines is not enough for high protection.

    The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, confirms headline findings given by Public Health England in May about the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Oxford-AstraZeneca, based on real-world data.

    Wednesday's study found that two doses of Pfizer's shot was 88% effective at preventing symptomatic disease from the Delta variant, compared to 93.7% against the Alpha variant, broadly the same as previously reported.
