Either I have a REALLY bad chest cold, or
that pneumonia vaccine I got the other day fucked me up.

Been horking up my lungs for two days, and today I've been fighting a nice fever. I think I may need to see the doc about some antibiotics if it doesn't let up tomorrow.

Dammit, I haven't been sick like this in YEARS.

2. See the doc.
There's a cold virus mutation going around.

3. you don't get sick from vaccinations
you may have been exposed to the severe cold going around near the same time you got the shot and your getting sick was coincidental.



Can these vaccines make me sick?

Some people get muscle aches and feel tired after a flu shot. If this happens to you, you may think you have the flu, but these symptoms are normal. Severe reactions are rare.

Question: Can you get sick from the pneumonia or flu shots?

Answer: No. Flu shots contain a DEAD virus. You cannot get sick from that.
The pneumonia vaccine contains some of the protein from the bacteria that causes the disease. Again, you cant get sick.

Some people might suffer from a local reaction, like soreness in the arm, or occasionally a low-grade temperature. But in the pneumonia vaccine, even that is very rare.

My arm was sore as hell, however. It was way worse than the flu shot!

5. Antibiotics generally don't do much for colds of any stripe

7. My sister thinks I have that new super cold bug
At this point, I don't entirely disagree. I'll probably be going to the ER tomorrow morning.

9. Don't put it off
I got superpneumonia in 2000 and it fucked me UP. One Doc said it was SARS. Whatever it was, I lost about 60% of my lung function, and I'm only recently feeling up to surfing big waves again.
The longer you wait the worse it gets; do NOT delay.
