PS: Someone mentioned going out to dinner after they get the vaccine. I assume they meant to say in 2-3 weeks after getting it. For all practical purposes, the day you get the vaccine, it hasn't provided any level of immunity.

That was me and yes, I intend on waiting until I get both doses.

I'd be curious to see any reactions people might have. I'm never nervous about getting a flu shot but this one makes me a little edgier.

I have already signed up for our local health department site and also our local hospital and Doctors office. Not much else I can do at this point except wait and hope like many others.

Our first shot was so simple, no pain beyond that of a mosquito bite. And, no reactions. [emoticon] Really don't anticipate any more than that next week.

Our granddaughter had the Pfizer vaccine (she's a lab tech exposed to tissues and fluids covid contaminated). She had zero reaction to the first and a mild headache and a little fatigue with the second. Mild symptoms lasted for about 24 hrs.

We're scheduled for Feb 8 and 9 and hope the supply is sufficient that we don't get cancelled.

We live in a rural NC county and I figured it would be a while to get the shots. Nope, once the CDC changed high risk to include 65-74 last week NC our little county jumped on it. We're getting our first shot today.

I'm in Wayne County Michigan and am 70 with cancer and a damaged immune system. They have no list here to be put on. The county health department has said they have no vaccines to schedule. My hospital provider did send me an email saying to try to schedule an appointment. But they do not post many available appointments. In the past 9 days I only had 2 chance to sign up, but it was 2 counties away, 90 miles, 180 round trip. I did not sign up as I have not driven more than 12 miles in a year, and I hoped the other 6 closer hospital locations would have some openings. No, none. My docs office said there is no list and I need to keep logging into their system to see if any appointment opening pop up. SO I've been checking every hour or 2 and none have come up in 9 days. What a sad way of doing this. And since they opened up to all 65+ I am competing with many healthier people for an inadequate supply.

I see CVS in my state says they will give shots when they can get the vaccine.
The wife and I are 78 and 79. We signed up three weeks ago. WE were orig looking at sites within 25 miles. Were rural out here and between several towns with services.
We moved our look area out to 75 miles and finally found two slots 72 miles away for tomorrow (friday) afternoon in a small town. WE checked the state website at all hours of the day and nite.

Were both ready for the shots.

Here in Arizona they are running out of vaccine, don't have mass vaccination sites set up, and have not completed teachers or police yet. They don't even have an idea of when the 65-74 group will be allowed. Had to register with the state site 2 hours away for some time in February. Not good.

Our daughter is a doctor and already got both rounds of the vaccine. She said the first one had no side effects, and the second one gave her flu-like symptoms for 24 hours. She said she was glad for the side effects: "That's just the vaccine doing its dance. I'm glad I can feel it working."

My mom is kind of dragging her feet, even though I keep telling her that my wife and I can't get our vaccines until people in her age band go get theirs.

I kind of figured that was the intent but the way it read sounded like you were heading straight out from the hospital to hit the Golden Corral. [emoticon]

My sister got it 3 weeks ago (she's head of one of the convention center covid overflow centers). Unfortunately, her doctor told her it was no big deal to get the shingles vaccine at the same time, so she was knocked out for a couple days with flu like systems. No idea which vaccine or if it was the combination. We did make fun of her as she's an RN with 40yrs experience.
