The state has further broken the 1b group down to 3 groups.Nope. I am in group 1B and no one here knows what the fuck is going on with vaccines.
That might be CDC recommendations, but Texas didn't follow that. Here 1b is 65+, or 1+ chronic medical condition. At least in Texas.And now the phone system for the county health department has apparently crashed,
The state has further broken the 1b group down to 3 groups.

Husband and I have now made it to the second day with our bodies intact. Both of us feel a bit of soreness in the arm muscle, but not even enough to require a tylenol. No other symptoms. This was Moderna.I'm scheduled to have dose 1 in two hours. I'll let you know if any appendages fall off on the way home.
This season's flu shot left my arm a bit sore for about 3 days, which isn't my typical reaction. I got in my left arm, and I sleep on my left side which didn't work so well, so given the choice I'll get the COVID in my right arm. I'm expecting Morderna, as I think that was the last shipment the county received.Husband and I have now made it to the second day with our bodies intact.

Keep in mind that in less than two weeks the fucking incompetents on the COVID "Warp Speed" task force like Kushner, Pence, etc., and the rest of the occupants of the clown car will be replaced with competent people.Based on the replies I'm guessing that general availability to lowest priority people like myself will be Xmas 2021--if Santa makes it through COVID.
Watched a briefing to county comissioners by head of the health department, and the COO of the hospital here. He stated that a portion of hospital staff are choosing to not take the shot. I speculate these are people that while involved in patient care, are not caring for COVID patients.California is a mess, they are reserving vaccine for medics , but a lot of medics don't want it, so it's just sitting around.
I have no evidence, but we will have to learn after 4 years of a president that just makes shit up on the fly, that Biden has probably, or someone on his behalf, have had conversations with Pfizer and Morderna if productions is at the level this is a viable solution.Biden wants to release the vaccine supplies being held for dose # 2 for immediate use, assuming that under his administration they can ramp up production. I guess that will be the first big test of the Biden administration Covid response. But I would like to know how the vaccine works if the second dose were delayed or never given? Would you have to start all over with dose # one? How long can you go before getting dose # 2, is there any flexibility with the timeframe?
