I hear the J&J vaccine won’t make you tear up if it gets in your eyes.

Pfizer. 1st shot January 7th, second shot January 29th. Older+heallthcare worker.... honestly I thought I'd be higher on the list.
I knew about the 2nd shot reactions and a couple co-workers had to take the day off after theirs. (Really tough when the hospital is as busy as it is.) Wouldn't you know it- I felt fine the day after, enough to go and turn some dirt in the garden. And then I went for a ride on Sunday. I feel pretty darn good.

Not for a while, but I'm super relieved to know both my kids got theirs. Daughter is a hospice chaplain, gears up head to toe in the facility but it's been a concern. Son is military and his peers are careless to put it mildly. I'll get it when I can.

I've recently been classified as a essential worker (I think they put all govt employees and contractors into that group now), and I volunteered, but haven't heard anything about being on the list.

I'm not terribly worried about it myself, but my mom lives with us and she has several comorbidities, so I'd really like to make sure she's protected, since I run 99% of the errands for the household.

As soon as it's available, she and my wife will also be getting it (they may wind up getting it before me).

I became eligible today and when I checked locally it was a seven week wait to get in, checked in an adjoining county and it was a four week wait. So I'm in line four weeks away. Smiles, MH

Man, all you guys are a lot older than I thought. Way it's going here, I'm holding number 7,249,143, and they're on like... ah... 2,300? I figure that by the time I'm eligible, I'll be getting one from Costo or maybe Big Lots. Pfizer, Moderna, J&J? no, no, no... I'll be getting KIRKLAND Vaccine #3. I'll be walking thru the store, just picking up, say, 7 gallons of mayonnaise and 288 pigs-in-a-blanket, and there will be some nice employee handing out samples. One hand, "self-shooter vaccine", other hand, cheesy pretzel knots. Then, it's walk over to look at the new $125 fully suspended carbon fiber hybrid bikes with knock-off Deye2 brifters.

my wife got her second shot yesterday. First shot she had no side effects but the second one made her arm really really sore from the elbow on up. Feeling a wee bit groggy today but arm is starting to feel better.

They just opened up to 70+ here. I got a message from my health care provider and got on their list for next Friday. They said Pfizer vaccine. Also on the county list for their mass vaccine location but no time frame was given. I'll take whichever is available first.

I’m eligible in NY State, but both the county and state websites have had zero appointments available for the last 2 weeks. Folks I know who did get an appointment are in mid April. Likewise the state website is just a POS in its design and implementation. It told me tonight there were 2 appointments available at a local state facility, but would not let me schedule a time. When I called, they informed me the website was in error.

The paper tonight had an article of an elderly couple in eastern Long Island got an appointment at a CVS in New London, CT. So they hopped the ferry, arrived to discover Conn residents only. How stupid can you be to not know that ?. Sorry, but it’s everywhere you read.

Not yet. Government hasn't started yet. They're sorting all the logistics first so it doesn't turn into a circus. Nice to have the luxury to do that, at the very least it means we'll get a heads up about a vaccine induced zombie outbreak.
I'm in category 3 so I expect it'll be a while, relatively, but I think the whole thing will go smoothly.

Moderna, 1st shot January 8th and second February 4th. Pays to be a first responder in my area, as I wouldn't be eligible otherwise...

No symptoms other than a 1.5/10 sore arm both times.

Scheduled (1B) for my first shot on April 6th. Seems like a long time to wait. T'would be nice to get the Johnson & Johnson single-dose, but I'm guessing they've already allocated and scheduled every shot and where they are being procured. Will be almost May by the time I get the second dose.

Wife and I are so longing for a decent vacation, but I doubt that will happen until next year because of all this. Even if a significant number of people get vaccinated and herd immunity takes hold, the devastation to the foods and services industries will still take time to recover. I guess we should be content with a lobster roll eaten in the car, by the seashore, and call it good.

Because Ca. prioritized energy infrastructure mission-essential workers I was able to get vaccinated. I got my second dose of Pfizer last week and had no problems with either dose. I was able to get an appointment at the state site at the LA Forum arena here in just three days for the first dose with the second dose appointment made then. I can now do some in-person site interactions next week so I’m happy to have gotten it as it makes the travel possible and interactions more worry free!!

Same here with just slightly different timing. Just past the two week mark today since the second shot. Hope my wife can get it soon.

Only side effect I had from the 2nd Pfizer was a very slight headache later that day and the next. Also felt a little fatigued the next day. My arm did not hurt anywhere near as much as after the first injection. It seems the reactions are all over the place as to severity.

The “vaccines” are odd, as they don’t protect you from catching or passing on COVID, they just protect you from becoming seriously ill. So, even if you are vaccinated, you will still have to take care, as you can still pick up COVID and you can still give it to someone else.

For myself, I will not get vaccinated. Here in Japan 88.1% of those who have died of COVID are 80 years old and above, most of the rest are over 70, with a small percentage being over 60. For people under 60, at least in Japan, COVID is less lethal than the common flu. The low mortality rate in Japan has much to do with the low rates of obesity and diabetes in the country, and that people in Japan are more active than in other places. Your typical Japanese does as much walking and stair climbing in a single day as most Americans do in a week or two (or three).

Vaccinations began in Japan last week, with the first recipients being healthcare providers and the most elderly. More will be vaccinated over time, though there seems to be no rush. Overall deaths in 2020 and the first two months of 2021 are lower than typical years. Despite COVID, last year there were significantly fewer deaths of all causes in Japan. The flu season was mild, and the suicide rate fell. The decrease in healthcare services caused by COVID are expected to increase cancer mortality somewhat, as well as heart disease, but COVID has not, and will not make a significant difference in overall longevity in Japan.

I need to find out when I might be able to get vaccinated my mom and sister already have but they had priority. The burro has to wait. I haven’t inquired about when my turn might be so I need to do so.

I'm just under 65 but got the first vaccination while working at a COVID-19 vaccination event sponsored by a local hospital; apparently hospitals get batches on a regular basis, and this batch was used to vaccinate folks over 65 through our local senior center. I spent four hours checking folks in, making sure their 'paperwork' files were complete and screening for any medical issues (free pizza for lunch, too!). At the end of the day they had 6 shots left, six of us wanted them, so that was it. Pfizer vaccine, only reaction was a slight headache the next day. Second shot is supposed to be the first week of March (week 3), or the second week (second vaccine can be given anytime from the third week to the sixth week after the first).

FWIW: The forms they give out for the Pfizer vaccine mentions to NOT take ibuprophin for two days before or after vaccination, as it can interfere or interact with the vaccine in a bad way.

I'll sign up as soon as I can. (Currently the state website says phase 2, 65+ March 1st.) I"ll go through the proper channels, no cutting in line but the one thing I would defer to is giving my turn in line to someone of color.

I'll check for aspirin. Cheap generic aspirin is God's gift to these knees and this body in general. I've never seen an advantage to the more modern stuff. Guess I'm lucky.

Got my first shot of Pfizer yesterday. I felt like crying a little. All the hype and hopes, and unknowns finally culminating in one little shot. I feel so much relief! If you've been waffling over the shot, just get it. Suck it up and get it. Its been tested. Its safe. Get it. Do you have people in your life who count on you? Well, its not just about you then, is it? Get the shot. Get it for the people who love you.

I got the second shot of Pfizer this past week. Next morning I felt fine, so thought I may be one of those that doesn't react to it. I was too optimistic as I started feeling a little odd around noon; no lethargy or fever, just feeling 'flush' all over like an oncoming fever or flu event. I took it easy the rest of the day. The next day I got up and felt fine again, went out for a 15 miles bike ride and no issues.

FWIK some type of reaction after getting the second vaccination is a good sign as it means the vaccine is working. It'll be nice to see how folks react to the single-dose J&J vaccine.
