Gregory Poland, MD, director of the Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group in Rochester, Minnesota, remains a steadfast vaccination advocate -- even though he developed tinnitus soon after receiving his second dose of COVID vaccine.

A little more than a year ago, Poland was driving back from the hospital after receiving his second shot when he nearly veered out of his lane.

"It was like someone suddenly blew a dog whistle in my ear," Poland told MedPage Today. "It has been pretty much unrelenting."

Since then, Poland said he has been experiencing what he describes as life-altering tinnitus, or ringing in the ear. It occurs in both ears, but is worse in the left than in the right.

He remains steadfast that opting to receive his booster -- after which his tinnitus briefly disappeared but then returned at a slightly higher pitch that made it just a bit less bothersome -- was the right move. After all, it would be "way too ironic" for a prominent vaccinologist to die of COVID, he said. He also worried about the possibility of contracting COVID and spreading it to his patients.

^ When your whole life is built around perpetuating a lie you can't look at any evidence that possibly makes it so. I wonder if he also takes the flu vaccine, for his patients' sake.

Imagine if a cricket got wedged between her skin and shirt.
An annual occurrence with me.
O.H. is convinced it's my affinity with animals that causes this.

She is going to have a lot bigger bugs to deal with soon. How will she handle it when the bins aren't being emptied for worthless fiat and the rats are starting to multiply? :think:

Roll up for Convid XE.
We know we have Manjaro XFCE on a laptop and we haven't tested for it either :mask

New Mutant Strain Found In UK As WHO Warns It's More Contagious Than Omicron

XE is a "recombinant" strain - that is, a mutation that combines features of the BA.1 and BA.2 omicron sub-strans. Recombinant mutations emerge when a patient is infected by multiple variants of COVID at the same time. The variants interbreed and combine their genetic material during replication, forming an entirely new mutated strain. A team of researchers from the UK said as much in a paper released this week.

The UK's health agency said that XE was first detected on Jan. 19. Since then, 637 cases of the new variant have been reported.
