Part of the issue here in my county is that we have the highest percentage of 65+ people in the entire state - higher in fact than Florida! - but the vaccine is allocated by county population.

Congratulations to everyone who's been able to get a vaccine so far. Very thankful to say I'll be getting my first shot tomorrow.

I got my second one yesterday morning. Like the first one, my arm started getting sore about 12 hours afterward. It will probably last three or four days, but it's not too bad. With my first one four weeks ago, I remember coming home and sleeping for several hours that day, which is unusual for me, because I'm not usually a daytime napper. This time, I wasn't tired yesterday when I got it, but today I do feel a bit of fatigue.

I got mine through my primary health care provider, a multi-practice group that is affiliated with a big local hospital system. My husband is with the same group but has a different primary doctor. We were told they were randomly selecting from all patients 65 and older, and that we just need to be patient, they will get to all of us. I was surprised to be among the first group of patients offered appointments. I really wish he had been contacted before me. I'm in my 60s, he's in his 70s. He really should have gotten it first, but it sounds like the computer is just drawing names out of the hat, so to speak.

Still, the experience of going for the shot was very well-managed. Everyone got an individual appointment, no long lines, no waiting in cars. I parked in the lot, walked into the building, was greeted and filled out a few quick forms, and was directed on where to go to get the shot. I then went to a designated location to sit for 15 minutes in case of allergic reactions, then was free to leave. No crowds, no confusion, no stress.

After my daughter's second shot, she had very mild flu type symptoms for a couple of days. Nothing severe, just achy, fatigue, slight headache. She's in medical field, so was one of the first up to bat.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scored an appointment this morning for Saturday afternoon. It's going to be 120 mi round trip (x 2) up the Keys to Tavernier in stupid weekend traffic but I guess I'm happy that the annoyance of trying to get an appointment at all is worth it. Not to mention that soon maybe life will start to look more "normal".

My husband got his first dose yesterday. He ended up registering with our county health department because he was getting stressed waiting for his primary care practice to get in touch, and the county contacted him pretty quickly. Of course after he went to the county to get it yesterday, his primary care practice then contacted him by email today to let him know they had an appointment available for him. Figures. Oh well, now his spot there will go to someone else who has been waiting.

Mine was painless. Literally and figuratively.
Except for the 2 hours and 15 it took to make the 60 mile return trip.

They actually told me that when I go back in 4 weeks I don't need to wait till 3:30 and to come anytime after 8AM and they'd get me done and out before the traffic got bad. They said they never leave the store between 2 and 8 on Fridays or Saturdays.

I got my first one on the 20th around 1:30 PM and from the time of the shot it got sorer until that maxed out around 9 PM. The next day it was only half as sore, and by the following day all soreness was gone. Didn't get any other symptoms.

Moderna has all sorts of trust issues. Look up Hydrogel.
I don't trust the Government push or the main stream media who have produced a level of fear in this country not seen since the 1930s in Europe. They have proven themselves unworthy of the name 'journalist'. Beware who you listen to and from where you get your information!!
I will join a large and growing segment of the population who will never let this vaccine enter my body.

Just so you know, I had the virus back in September. Mild fever, lack of energy, loss of taste/smell. Two weeks later I was back at work. I'm 66.
Enjoy your conspiracy theories.
