    Not all mutate all that much.
    Some are rather stable.

    My Spousal Alternative hasn't had any and she didn't contract Covid from me, as yet anyway and it's been about three weeks since my second shot. Wonder if people who have had a flu shot would test posative after having received a vaccination?

    I had my flu shot as I do every year, wife and I had China Virus, and I've had both Pfizer shots. No problems at all with any shot.

    I took my first shot Thursday. Even though I have had Covid, I took the vaccine on advice from my family physician.

    No ill affects.

    It depends on what the test is looking for.

    It you are testing for the presence of the
    virus it should be negative.

    If you test for antibodies to the virus and
    the immunization worked the test should be positive.
    The trick with immunization is to get the body to
    produce antibodies to aid in fighting off the virus.

    Small pox was a funny one.
    Milk and horse 'maids' never got small pox.
    Jenner realized they had been exposed to cow pox or horse pox.
    Both of these elicited an antibody response that was effective
    against smallpox.

    It quickly became traditional to put the cow pox on the left upper arm.
    Around shoulder height on the outside of the arm.
    It left the characteristic scar that was easily checked for.
    And while it can fade slightly with advanced age, it often
    remains at least faintly visible.

    Fascinating.

    AFAIK I'm of the last generation of 'scar arms'...... we got shot with the big silver space gun full of needles (looks like a needle scaler or scaling gun) and drop't the characteristic dehorning button scab. Still got the scar but it's faint,

    glows under a black lite though when I get all sweated up

    or not

    Got my 2nd early this week with no discernable effects from either.

    Wish I could say the same about the 2hrs I spent in an oral surgeon's chair this morning. All sorts of effects from that.

    Pretty rare to have a good time there.

    More like tolerable at best.
    A long time ago I went to one of the oldest oral surgery practices in the area.
    All four impacted wisdom teeth in one shot.


    So impacted it took him an hour and he had to cancel this next appointment to finish me up.
    Lots of chiseling and hammering according to the report.
    Glad I selected General Anesthesia.
    No bruises on my cheeks though.
    Some swelling (a little bit of chipmunk look) but no bruises.
