Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J). The problem is I have to fly into Chicago next weekend and will be required to take a COVID test before I arrive as I won’t have the 2 weeks to be “fully vaccinated”. Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.

No it will not cause you to test positive. The J&J vaccine is a harmless adenovirus that has been augmented to get your cells to produce the spike protein, but doesn't contain the virus itself. So a PCR test won't be impacted. You may test positive on an antibody test but that just means the vaccine is working.

No this does not produce a positive on either rapid or PCR test, the only test that will detect is an antibody test for the spike protein antibodies(believe me I am a member of a vaccine trial group that was desperate to unblind themselves)

A few months later he texted me and said he just got married at the courthouse and that I should be in the wedding party when covid was over. It shouldve happened by now but it hasnt yet…👀🙂

This big 4 always carry tapes to measure your performance. 2. I recently joined a witch company and here are my inputs A. Latest tech stakes but slow pace of work B. No long working hours (gov job)
