Re: The Covid

I took one in each arm. The little people are swimming in RSV right now, but Covid is low in the County I serve so I don't have to mask up for work this week.

Re: The Covid

I just got Covid in one arm and flu in the other. I told them I wanted two of each, but they balked at the suggestion.

Didn't want me to become too powerful, I guess, like Larry Hagman..

So, there I am, replete with all the defences to fend off Covid and Flu (strains, various) and I get a bloody cold!
I thought at first that it might be a reaction to the flu shot but I'm pretty sure that it's a stand alone cold.
There is all manner of preventative medicine to repel plague, pestilence and pox but still nothing that works against the common cold.

I am not amused!

Re: The Covid

Do you suppose they expire?  I made a habit out of picking one from most free piles I passed.

Re: The Covid

Ordered. I have to test every time I call in sick to work.

Re: The Covid

They have expirations dates.  Whether they actually expire or not is a good question. 

People are still shooting on old Polaroid film that expired decades ago (with mixed results.)  I assume this is similar.

Re: The Covid

COVID tests generally have a shelf life of 6 to 24 months depending on manufacturer and lot number. There are expiration dates on them; however, the FDA may have extended some of those shelf lives and expiration dates. The FDA publishes that information. An example of those tables for tests that expired earlier this month; but, were extended into next year:

The FDA's comprehensive list of approved at-home tests with shelf lives, original expiration dates and extended expiration dates is here:

List of Authorized At-Home OTC COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests

For tests beyond even extended expiration dates and non-approved tests, you're on your own.

The county I work in just dropped to from high to medium community levels. So we got that going for us.
