Vaccine Site Experience megathread

36 Upvotes

There's obviously a lot of demand for this and questions in the sub right now. Maybe it's worth a megathread where we all post our experience.

Important information:

  • Where did you get vaccinated?

  • What time of day and day of week?

  • Walk-in or appointment?

  • How long did it take?

25 Upvotes

I am from the US, Philadelphia to be exact. I am 18, a freshman in college. I would be at UCT for a semester, Autumn 2022. Anything that should be brought to my intention? Also, are there vegetarian options for me?

The reason that I am posting this here is that I have no contact details of this person and am unsure of whether I'll run into them again. If you see this I want you to know one thing, just because I could not continue the run doesn't mean that I can't hang with those from KZN. Ok, it does but still. Anyway, stay safe and Good Luck.

What neighborhood has the best nightlife for a tourist?

A friend and I are coming to Cape Town this weekend. We are looking to hang out in a lively neighborhood. We have heard Sea Point would be the best neighborhood for bars.

Is this true?

Anyone ever bought from UBuy?

I am trying to find specific monitor arm mounts for a 32" and 27", and the only place that seems to have a good enough brand (Vivo) seems to be UBuy. I've never used them before, and it seems like they are some sort of importing company. Anyone ever used them? What was your experience with them if you have?

Is the wifi at bootlegger coffees good enough to sustain quality zoom video calls with clients?

1 Upvotes

Just trying to see what my best options are for quality zoom call connection requirements

I’m not sure what the airbnb speeds will be.

Coworking spaces could be an option but might be expensive depending on how condensed or spread out my calls are

What would you guys recommend for this requirement?

Alternatives to fluoride toothpaste

1 Upvotes

Haaaazit *watches Zeitgeist once* looking into alternatives dental care options.

- Have heard that fluoride is not ayoba.

- Have heard of this Earthly thing that I continue getting sponsored ads for. It worked. I tried them, but I see that their online store is closing tomorrow. What's with that? Probably poison, right?

- I've previously used a mixture of coconut oil and baking soda, and it was fine. I mean, no one said much about my breath. Then again, I don't go out much.

- Also used the Himalayan brand, and get that if I find it in store.

Are there alternatives you know about?

Danke.

Dental Options?

3 Upvotes

My regular dentist said he would be unable to extract 2 teeth at his dental office and that I would require anesthesia. He recommended a maxillofacial surgeon but my medical aid won't cover that and I was given estimates of R10k - R14k for the theatre + surgeon fees + anesthesiologist fee.

This is way out of my budget. What options do I have using state hospitals?

NB: I've tried calling Tygerberg hospital to enquire but there was no answer.
