I doubt that you can go wrong with any of them. They gave 8000 shots over the weekend here in NH at the race track in Loudon. They said it was a 2.5 hour ordeal, if that's the right word. My first shot was given by the National Guard, and I was efficiently in and out under 1.5 hours.

My second shot is scheduled a week from today. I got a weird phone call from some dude named Muldur. He says the second shot is loaded with nano-bots that control your mind. :innocent:

At 79 I got my second shot yesterday. I didn't get any reaction from either. I'm still going to wear a mask as long as our state requires it. I haven't been wearing one on the short rides I go on though. We are having a spat of great weather here. :)\I have a brother-in law in his 80s that is just now getting around better after over 2 months of covid related problems. :eek:

FINALLY! I have an appointment for Tuesday morning through my healthcare system for the first dose. It will either be Pfizer or Moderna. It also looks likely that the university I work for will also be setting up a vaccination clinic. I'm in a planning meeting Monday morning for that. I'm on the university's list since I am teaching in person this semester. But the earliest that clinic would start is Wednesday. It wasn't much of a decision to go with the first available date. Now to figure out how I can get an appointment for my husband who is 61 with a BMI that classifies him as obese. He hasn't seen a doctor in ages so he isn't in any of the healthcare systems to be notified. I keep nagging him to get on the list with the county's healthcare department but he hasn't acted on that yet.

I’m signed up and eligible starting Monday. That BMI chart is insulting :lol: I’m classified as obese and I’m not fat! The doctor told me those charts are BS. I would be sickly skinny with no muscle if I weighed what that chart says I should.

Hondo Gravel 03-13-21 10:56 PM

Classified as Obese! :lol: Those charts drives me nuts! Lose weight? Ok I guess I will try... Throw them charts in the trash.

Hondo Gravel I am always telling the student athletes I teach that the BMI chart is probably okay for your typical couch potato, but for anyone who is regularly active, it falls short. But if it allows you to get the vaccine sooner, go for it!

I got Moderna #1 last week.

Google up the BMI charts images, and you'll see that they are all different. Which one is correct? I think that these charts were a good tool for back in the day, but over the years - as with anything else in this word of ours - they have been mutated and bastardized to serve someone else's needs. For instance, I just slipped into 28 on the BMI chart, which says that I'm a healthy weight. So why do I still have a flabby gut and feel like a porker? I think that most nutritionists and doctors who actually defer to the BMI charts will tell you that its only a rule of thumb.

Got my second vaccine on Tuesday, Pfizer according to the vaccinator wearing a white coat. I asked if I got the "good" vaccine, the one with the space alien chromosomes? She said, "Absolutely!" I had to believe her; she was wearing a white coat.

It was a 90 minute drive to the big city where the hospital ran a very efficient procedure at the convention center. One hour of process and then on to the Sonic Drive In for an indulgence of the ice cream kind. 90 minutes drive home, and then, miraculously, it was "Wine Time".

Life is hard out in the sticks.

I had a pit stop after my 1st dose

My housemate just got Pfizered. First one.

Hondo Gravel 03-15-21 02:33 PM

Going to force myself on the bike today to sweat out yesterday’s misbehavior :twitchy: XX is smooth sometimes too smooth. The sooner I get vaccinated the better so I can take some kind of vacation.

StupidlyBrave 03-15-21 03:13 PM

my vaccine can beat up your vaccine. thbbbt.

Hondo Gravel 03-15-21 06:34 PM

YES! I get vaccinated this Wednesday the 17th. Moderna I think. My sister had a doctors appointment and the nurse told her there was some slots open so she signed me up. I hope it gives me a great buzz :lol: but I’m really happy to get vaccinated sooner than I thought.

eofelis 03-15-21 08:12 PM

I got my first round of Pfizer vaccine today.
Rode my bike downtown to where the county has a mass vaccination clinic set up at a convention center.

GadgetGirlIL 03-16-21 08:09 AM

Just got my first dose of Pfizer this morning. Super efficient setup at the fitness center associated with the hospital.

Iím getting the shot at our local regional hospital. From what I understand itís an efficient setup.

Hondo Gravel 03-17-21 12:38 PM

Got my first shot of Moderna a few hours ago. Feel a little goofy but not bad. I understand the second dose will have you dragging around for about a day. I’m thankful to begin the vaccination process. The hospital was fast and efficient with a full team of nurses and staff.

My second dose of Pfizer was Monday, and so far I've felt great. My arm wasn't even sore. Maybe its the good healthy stuff I've been doing? I make myself a tonic of water, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and cranberry juice, and take it three times a day. Staying away from dairy, refined sugar, flour/wheat products, and any refined or fortified foods. I've got to say that I have been really feeling great!

Hondo Gravel 03-17-21 04:01 PM

Since I got Moderna I can suddenly track Russian satellite orbiting above :eek: I knew that Putin and Moderna was up to no good! There just went Sputnik 11 ....

shelbyfv 03-17-21 04:58 PM

I got my 2nd shot of Pfizer yesterday. Our county has appointments, drive through, no waiting, very efficient. Eligibility seems to be opening up, I think we are into 60+ now. I read that Mississippi, next state down, has opened up to everyone. Not sure what that tells us....:foo:

Efficiency. CDC says give the vaccine now to anyone with a BMI > 30.
