I haven't seen a headline to this effect, but a look at the reported data suggests that one in seven Covid victims end up with long Covid, lasting at least three months. And now there is a headline, specifically about kids who get Covid:

"At the moment, 80% of people over the age of 12 in the United States have received at least one vaccine dose and 69% are fully vaccinated."

Vaccine uptake by those between 5 and 12 is cruising as well.

Long story short -- this isn't a 50-50 issue by any stretch of the imagination in the U.S. A huge majority of people (not eligible people, all people) in the country are vaccinated or in the process of getting vaccinated. Given that people 12-18 just started up this is a pretty big win.

I'm going to my sisters for Thanksgiving. We didn't do it last year and I know it means a lot to my sister to host it. My parents might come by for dessert. They never really stopped locking down. Everyone is vaccinated.

Despite Minnesota being the current virus hotspot in the U.S., I am still seeing a disappointing number of maskless people in indoor public places. I was recently puzzled by the extreme disparity between mask-wearing at the grocery store and at the gym, but I figured it out: fragile masculinity. A significant majority of grocery store shoppers are women, and they are more likely to wear masks. Now that my gym is not currently hosting aerobics classes, a large majority of the folks at the gym are men, and they are less likely to wear masks. This reflects gender differences in household responsibilities, exercise methods, and overall outlook about healthcare. Men are less likely to buy groceries if they have a wife to do the shopping. Men are more likely to lift weights and less likely to do aerobics. Men are less likely to see a doctor and more likely to take risks. Who knew that masculinity had so many restrictions and requirements?

Our Governor approved booster shots for all adults less than two weeks ago, and slightly before the CDC did the same. But I am can't get a booster shot yet because the local pharmacies aren't ready. They don't have enough booster shots on hand and are saving what they have for the immuno-compromised. That's fair, but also frustrating. Oh well, at least I got my annual flu shot, so I don't have to worry about a double-whammy of flu and Covid-19.

Girlfriend and I got breakthrough Covid. Guessing from her work since she got it first. I haven’t even had a fever that a thermometer could detect yet, but I’ve got a cough and oddly some leg pain that I’m guessing was work related but showed up in my weakened state. I first started showing symptoms on Monday and tested positive today. Now, we wait.

Her parents dropped some turkey and stuff off for us at the door. That was nice of them.

Leg pain — hips? Or lower?

Lower. Right above my left knee but on the back of the leg.

It hurts when I sit or lay down, but not if I stand or pace.

I’ve had hip pain since second vax, but I’m predisposed to it. But the timing was interesting and I have to actively manage it each day. It makes sleeping difficult.

I have pain low on my right lower calf but I think it’s related.

I work for the post office and lift a lot of stuff off the ground. After I hurt my back one day I switched to hurting my knees. ;)

I’m due to get a Moderna booster tonight. I’ll be interested to see if it exacerbates my condition. Like you I had a prior issue, and either the pfizer second shot exacerbated it, or something else did. I’ve been moving rocks this past summer (don’t ask) so that may have been the real catalyst.
