Oops! That's what I get for typing in the sun in front of the hangar just after landing. I got my first shot at a clinic full of nurses, with doctors on patrol. Shot #2 comes next week. Pfizer. 

I figured that was a typo, but I needed to take a dig at you :lol:

Thanks! I had to take a break from social media for a while since I couldn’t reconcile what I was seeing every day in the hospital with the crazy stuff people were posting on the internet and it made

After over 80 million shots given the number of people having serious reactions is exceedingly small, so I’d say it’s a much safer bet than COVID. https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/covid-vaccine

Work your shoulder muscle and it will reduce the soreness. I leaned over my desk and put weight on it and twisted it around. It was tender to the touch for a little over 24 hours, but the soreness that was starting at 3-4 hours went away and stayed gone.

Thanks - but too late.  :-0

Relax. I'm on the couch, feet up [dual reclining couch], legs under a quilt and a dog on my lap. It's chilly here, down into the low 50s after reaching ~75° this afternoon.

But I can't blame mine in COVID shot #1, it was a week and a half ago . . . .

My dog is on the couch next to me.

Relax - I will take that as a suggestion!

Sacked out in my lap. Mom made the lap quilt for me, but he loves it just as much!

What you're missing is when it's time for you to get your shot, do it.  You time will come, likely before summer is up.  Do it.  The antivaxxers are misinformed, misconstrued, and generally nuts.  You don't want COVID.  It can wipe you and and cause long-lasting symptoms that can be devastating.  Get the vaccine, whichever one they offer you.  They all work, and they're all safe.  Whatever side effect you get from the vaccine are nothing compared to the 'rona.

We’re not anti-vaxers and we have been taking Corona virus seriously. I’ve also had the virus and will get the vaccine as soon as it’s available.
I think folks should plan accordingly for possible side effects even though severe side effects are the exception not the norm. It’s not true that the symptoms of the virus are always worse than the side effects of the vaccine.  My father had the virus and the side effects from the Moderna vaccine were considerably worse than his symptoms from the virus though much shorter in duration (worst side effect over in 24, back to normal in 48). Second shot was even worse for him. He had pretty severe nausea and dizziness. Uncomfortable standing in the first 24hrs. He received his first dose just weeks after clearing quarantine. He’s in his early 80s (but still fit) so that certainly could be a factor. He tolerated the actual infection very well with mild symptoms (non respiratory).                  I post this not to deter anyone from getting vaccinated, on the contrary, I think everyone should. I say it as a warning to keep an eye on loved ones post vaccine. My Dad is very independent so I only found out after the fact. In hindsight, he should have had someone with him. The side effects hit him many hours after the shot. It’s good he was home because they were so debilitating that driving would have been off the table.

Got mine today.. Very efficient process at TMS! So far, just a bit tired after having the first round. Hope to be better tomorrow as the weather here is nice!

I can't get over your dog!! What kind of dog is he/she?  Our girl dog strava could be her sister!  Only I don't know what kind she is - a rescue mutt.  So similar.

I woke up around 2am feeling pretty nauseous (4pm shot) and thought I had better do something quick or else, but I was too drowsy...and fell back to sleep.  Then I woke up foggy and draggy and figured it was going to be a tough day.  By noon I felt fine.  But 4pm I felt great and went XC skiing with my son and I felt fantastic.

Thinking of how differently folks will read that last sentence.

It helps to know the author, sometimes...  :D

Interpretation is everything...
