^ I haven’t heard of shingles post-vaccine but apparently people are getting vertigo.

Mind you, it could just be people getting shingles and vertigo naturally looking to place blame on something.. who knows.

Funny you mentioned it. There was a few days last week where my wife was experiencing vertigo-like symptoms. But now they are gone.
Her second shot would have been around 3-4 weeks ago.

I got hives on my forearms for a few days - apparently, a common side effect.

On the subject of getting your passport on your phone, I kept getting an error message after entering my details. Refreshed a bunch of times, to no avail. Tried it in desktop mode and worked fine.

Coincidence or not, seems to be links online suggesting its more common than not

Time to get more vaccines, lol


My wife got shingles after her second dose.

She got pfizer if there's any correlation.

My wife and I had vertigo about a month after our 2nd shot in July. It lasted a few days and wasn't super strong.

2nd shot. Same thing, obviously cause it super early and went to doctors and had to take around 14 pills a day. I feel for her man, she's in her mid 40s.

2 weeks of meds with atleast a month of feeling like shit total.

Still not 100%.

She asked the doc if she could get the shingles vaccine and he said no.

The average cost of treating a COVID-19 patient who needs intensive care in Canada is estimated at more than $50,000, compared with $8,400 for someone who's had a heart attack, a new report says.

Combine that with over 90% of the people in ICU with covid are unvaccinated (and like 96% under 59), and you might have an idea of why they want people to get vaccinated.

These idiots are costing us everything.

Add in the policing for their protests etc… Selfish pricks

I didn’t really know anyone personally who outright refused to get the vaccine, but I’m sure finding myself surrounded by a lot of people who won’t do the passport thing or are vehemently opposed to it. It’s so ridiculous, you check in on Facebook, review on Yelp, location post on IG… meta data your photos… huge corporations that actually care about where you go and what you do so they can sell you shit and sell your interests to others actually care to see this stuff. These people think the disorganized Canadian government gives a shit where they’re eating or what they’re attending?

Mind boggling.

Okay for giant corporations who go out of their way to hide what they’re doing with your info… but government openly does it and it’s a conspiracy.

https://www.citynews1130.com/2021/09...uver-hospital/

WTF?????

Some of these meatheads want to protest next Monday, September 13th, near VGH again???

Mayor Stewart mentions that he is reviewing a series of options with the VPD chief:

When they happened last week, I reviewed the situation thoroughly with Chief Adam Palmer of the Vancouver Police Department, as well as our health authority. I understand that the province is also concerned about this type of action right across British Columbia,” Stewart told NEWS 1130 Thursday.

“We’ve reviewed all our legal options and are going to make sure people can get to health care when they need it and they’re not impeded in any way to get to the hospital.”

One option, Stewart explains, is a legal injunction. He says there are other legal avenues the city can take, but that an injunction would “be the most prudent one at this point.”


All these Covidiots protesters are forcing many patients, some of them cancer patients, having to walk to VGH in order to receive treatment. What a bunch of selfish, dumbasses.

I do not disagree with their right to protest. What I do not like seeing are these selfish fucks preventing people from getting access to health care.

If they want to protest, then they should just protest in front of government buildings where Horgan and other government officials make decisions to manage Covid.

Not just that, but they are willing to show their ID to prove their age when purchasing alcohol/tabacco/entering a club or casino (if asked), but this is a big no no?

The government has updated the vaccine card website. It's way easier now. No queue. Just type in your PHN, date of birth, and the date of one of your shots. Took like 30 seconds. Props to who ever designed this. This is some Google/Amazon type stuff.

These bums protesting were probably the same people asking for government handouts at soon as covid started. Brb collecting CERB, not working so go down the rabbit hole of internet misinformation, now have become a crackpot.

Time to get serious with the Covid protesters .. lock those idiots up, send them to the drunk hold tank even if it is for a couple of hours! Free speech and protest yes but disruption to health care, sick people inconvenienced, health care workers harassed and assaulted ... NO.

I'll admit that I'm one of those fully vaccinated people who's not a fan of this program. It just rubs me wrong, just like when they banned having people over at your residence over the winter (That made me absolutely livid).

I'd like some more defined dates/milestones from the government as to when it will be removed. If it's milestone based, what are they and what happens if we never do reach those milestones (Like,surely there are some people who never will never get the vaccine no matter what, nor care about accessing the sort of services this vaccine card allows access to), so what happens then?

I'm not really worried about the personal information aspect, I think the government probably is mostly competent on that one (although I remember a few years ago when they lost a hard drive with unencrypted education records on it, so never underestimate their incompetence). However, on that front I don't have social media really tied to my identity (No facebook, no twitter, and my google account is not in my real name)

I think why the Bar Watch thing was never as heavily protested, is that it's much less wide spread than this program, and you can easily avoid those places if you want to (I've never been to a place with Bar Watch, I always thought it was a program meant for douchey night clubs, which I'm not really into)

As for showing ID for buying alcohol/week/tobacco, is anyone on this forum young enough that they still get carded? LOL

The only thing on the list of activities that this vaccine card thing would affect in my life is access to sit in restaurants. And I know I'll cave because the wife is going to want to go out to eat sometime soon :P
