Regarding the mood at vaccination clinics - I overhead the pharmacist at the Publix where we got our shots (had #2 today) say that he had never seen so many grateful, happy people in all the years he's been working :-)

Count Ed and I as those folks :-)

True dat!

I have to stop DW when I told her she is embarrassing the pharmacist, lol.

Well, we are truly grateful as we are not in the priority list yet and we just took our chances -- and the fact that we need not have that follow up call. They call us to come in and got the express lane of 30 minutes and out -- faster if not the post-vaccination observations for adverse reactions.

It took a few weeks to get the first appointment, but we finally succeeded. THEN, yesterday my wife and I received our first Moderna shot, PLUS an appointment for our second shot. I didn't feel a thing, and still NOT feeling not even any soreness. OTOH my wife is feeling some mild soreness in the area of the shot. We're exuberant.

Lucky you squeak by. Texas has been reported to have the slowest vaccination rates in the country.

And just in time to the governor lifting the mask mandate.

Well, I'm almost 24 hrs post-second-Moderna-shot. So far, I've got an elevated temp of 99 degrees; and some achiness, but that could also be my arthritis speaking up since I didn't take my usual Aleve last night, not wanting to interfere with the vaccine working its magic. I'm just letting my body dictate what we do: so far, napping has been a priority...LOL! Ed has noticed nothing - part of me wonders if his normal gerbil-like intake of water has slowed any reactions; or if he's just going to be one of the lucky ones who has no reaction.

I'm so grateful for the speed and efficacy of these vaccines!!

We're about 2 hours post second Pfizer shot. I'll let you all know if there are any reactions.

I don't really understand the recommendation to not pre-treat with nsaids yet OK to treat post VX. You'll have anti-inflammatory effects either way. I need someone to explain how taking them before hand is really any different and somehow blunts the immune response.

I wouldn't say lucky, but I read medical experts saying, those are evidences of your body immune system getting a drill or training to be ready against the virus.

And getting the kicked-by-a-mule full flu like episode on the 2nd dose is the body equivalent of a full invasion war game.[emoticon]

Yesterday I finally felt "blah" (good medical term...LOL!) enough by 3PM to take a Tylenol. Napped for a couple of hours and felt MUCH better. Woke up this morning after a good night's sleep, ready to conquer the world!! Ed never had any effects except for a bit of soreness at the injection site.

DW and I got our first shot of Moderna vaccine last weekend. Both had tender arms, but that's a small price to pay. I've had a friend in his 40s die of COVID, and professional colleagues (one whose wife is currently in ICU, though just on oxygen, not a ventilator, thank goodness) who've spent time in the ICU. All the side effects noted here are tiny, tiny potatoes compared to the possible consequences of catching this virus.

Unlike some naysayers claim, this ain't no "mere flu." What's more, it seems that it is possible to catch it twice, and the second bout seems to be even worse than the first.

I'm looking forward to the second shot at the end of the month, and I don't care if it makes me feel off for a day or so.
