In case no one noticed that entire subforum has been closed. Just a heads up
I'm 64 and apparently don't qualify.

I'm 65, and qualify, but there's no vaccine available where I live. They had 1,000 doses available yesterday, opened for appointments at 9AM, all 1,000 spoken for by 9:15AM. I barely missed out.

Not for a long time unfortunately, here they start with the vulnerable groups. I am hoping my employer will offer it (they offered free testing over two periods in 2020).

Relative already has it as they are a doctor and any unused vaccines (apparently they go bad quite fast) are distributed to medical personnel.

Good luck and good health to you!

I can be patient til it's my turn because I basically have no life between home and my (considered to be essential, but not that essential) work.

As soon as it becomes available, I'll get it. Then I will feel more at ease to go to restaurants and such. And therefore, it is then that something resembling a normal economy can begin to rebound. I suspect that I am not alone in this rationale.
That said, I expect that it will be summer before my [general population] demographic will be offered the vaccine.

I get my second shot on 2/5. Pfizer. Like KenCT the injection site was sore for a few days after the first one. I may be naturally immune now, but I'm not taking any chances!

During a dental visit this week the assistant mentioned the same thing, then I found this report saying that is a bad idea https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...1201152648.htm

I should have linked a better source. There are also current reports on not taking Tylenol before the vaccine. https://www.wbrc.com/2021/01/23/expe...covid-vaccine/

Both shots Pfizer. Healthcare worker. No ill effects.

It's important to note the mild flu like symptoms are not because they are using the virus in the vaccine. It's because the vaccine ramps up your immune response and those symptoms are the bodies way/reaction to fighting infection.

You can't get covid from the covid vaccine.
