Re: Covid vaccine safety for 4/4’s?

Hooray and thanks or all the good news and vaccination stories! My husband and I had our second dose of Pfizer 10 days ago, with just sore arms, a bit of dizziness and mild chills that night.

Re: New here. Should I get tested?

With apologies for this belated message, I would like to inject a clear note of caution on the question of getting tested yourself in your early 30s.

Re: Any danger in sharing APOE e4/e4 status

Hoo boy, this is a subject near and dear to my extremely risk-averse heart! I have told my children absolutely not to get tested with 23andme or any related service.

Re: URGENT: Biomarker Study Opportunity for ApoE4.Info Members

What a great opportunity! Count me in as 4/4! My sister has no 4's and would probably participate with me in the Biomarker Study. We are in our 60s. I will be interested on how and when folks get started after having completed the poll.
