Just got the vaccine this morning. Well organized we were out in about an hour and 20 in was they made us wait to make sure there was no adverse reaction. Our appointment was between 9-11am and we arrived at 8:50am not sure what the situation would be. Passed back by around 10:30 and the parking lot was only half full.

On the positive side, 7 day average is 1.06mil per day and rising. So really Biden needs to up the goal since that will already be at well over 106million in his first 100 days if he just keeps doing what was happening before he got in the drivers seat.

PS: One thing that's kind of odd. No one asked anything about meeting the current phase requirements (Health Care Worker, 65+ or pre-existing condition). We do meet. Is that a HIPPA thing that they can't ask?

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.


Here in FL I'm reading posts from lots of neighbors who have managed to get vaccinations - and the worst I've read is "some arm soreness and maybe feeling tired for a day or so" (which is a good reaction to a shot, it means your body is building antibodies!) I also know a couple of people who took part in vaccine tests - as a rule, those who received a placebo shot, knew it because they felt *nothing*; and then after the test they were called back to receive a vaccination.

Given some of the stories I've heard from friends/neighbors who DID get sick with Covid but didn't require hospitalization - it's pretty awful. So glad the vaccines have been made available!!

I'm signed up with my local (Barry-Eaton county) Health Department; and with Meijer's pharmacy. In both cases, my "group" isn't up for vaccination yet; but I've been told that I will be contacted when I am able to schedule an appointment. You might try both of those - here's the link to Meijer's

Guy Roan, I spoke with my cousin this morning who is a Florida citizen in the Orlando area and informed him of your 2,000 mile round trip trek back to Mitchell County, NC for your shots. He said to tell you thank you so much and there has to be a special place in heaven for you and your family. I agree; you are a true southern gentleman!

I have been trying to get in via Henry Ford My Chart. I could have gone to Jackson county 9 days ago, but that was 90 miles. I kept checking from 6 AM - 8 PM, no appointments available. I got lucky a few days ago I checked at 8 PM and a bunch posted up for Wyandot Hospital, only 25 miles away. I got one of those. All the appts were gone within 10 minutes. So it is a game of needing to keep checking frequently and hope you time it right with the new appt postings, before they are gone. My appt is for this Wed.

The Wayne County Health Dept was not taking appointments (I heard).

Just a FYI: Any retired military can receive shots at on-base military clinics. Military clinics are scheduling by age - and if the retiree fits that age group, the spouse can get vaccine at the same time even if not that age group. IF the retiree gets shots from VA or elsewhere, the spouse must conform to the current age group, but can still get vaccinated without the retiree.

This info direct from NAS clinic in Jacksonville Florida. I'd imagine this is all military clinics, but advise you check with your local clinic first if you are retiree or spouse.

Yay!!! I'm happy for you!
Ed and I played the equivalent of "whack-a-mole" for 90 minutes this morning, attempting to get signed up for a new batch of vaccine here in Brevard - but no luck. We'll keep trying!

My employer notified us today, that we are in the phase 1b group for vaccinations; our jobs are being considered “frontline essential work”. Some employees (who live in the same county as the company) got their 1st dose last Friday. My employer is working with the Heath departments of the neighboring counties (where I live) to work out a process for us to be included in the current group being vaccinated.

My son, an EMT/First Responder/volunteer firefighter in Michigan, has been vaccinated. He said that the Michigan Health Department was working with groups (like yours, and his) to make vaccine available for group vaccinations. That makes a lot of sense to me - rather than actually administering the vaccine themselves like they are doing in FL

7 day average is no 1.25million shots per day and rising in the US.
