Ignore the line above, uniformed - passéd medical trials and effective 🤦‍♂️. Wake up EY1, there is so much scientific proof globally but you keep giving advice based on your favourite anti Vaxer. You are putting people in danger by saying stuff like this You could say you got COVID 😉 ?

OP, why don’t you call the place where you’re scheduled to get the vaccine and ask them what you should do? Or ask your doctor?

Get tested. If you have covid, I believe it’s recommended that you wait to get the vaccine until you don’t have Covid

Yeah I think it’s like giving your body a two front battle

I’ve postponed before when I was under the weather, nothing wrong with that. In fact, there’s usually a questionnaire prior asking how you’re feeling. Nbd, it’s pretty easy to reschedule. Feel better!

So the first PCR test appointment available is not until after my vax appointment tomorrow AM. I guess if I’m still feeling crummy tomorrow morning I’ll postpone 🤷🏻‍♀️

You might find this helpful for context and why getting vaccinated is a good thing you should do asap 👍

As long as you don’t have a fever, you should go get it.

Postpone the vaccine. Reschedule again. It’s easy

I get these same symptoms before my period also. Makes it hard to tell whether I have fever or just the regular monthly hot flashes and chills! I’d say get yourself tested.

I’ve never really taken sick days in my entire consulting career, about 2 years in. I do not want to, and I just don’t get sick often. But I’m wondering if this is something that is valued by upper management when evaluating their talent? Any thoughts from leaders and managers in consulting? I’ll continue to be the same regardless but I’ve been curious is this is a strength.
