WTF you don't even need the laptop, the 5G is directly connected to your brain after the second dose.

Alright, got my first Moderna today at a local CVS, process was smooth and efficient.

Unfortunately, I had to work overnight Monday-Tuesday, so I'm a bit off today with a mild headache already. Any initial side effects, other than arm soreness (have a little), can't really be attributed to the vaccine. But whatever....lol

I was a bit groggy the day after my first vaccine shot. I started drinking so it just felt like I was drunk-tired.

Ready for summer.

One week until 2nd dose.

I received a call from a buddy working the Boulder county fairgrounds vaccination site in Longmont, CO, and he said that have lotsa extra vaccine doses thawed out today. They're letting anyone that shows up get one (Moderna). Seems like there are plenty of shots available these days.

Depends on where you are. My wife had a hell of a time finding an appointment in eastern MA. First dose for her is this weekend.

Second will be easy, they will probably give her a QR code to scan and that tells you all the second appointment slots within you window to have it done.

I suspect most, if not all, testing sites only offer one vaccine type because it simplifies training and reduces medical errors. When training thousands of people, you keep it simple - one dosing regiment, one needle type, one storage requirement, etc. Also people don't end up with one dose of Pfizer and one dose of Modena by accident.

I got my first dose of Pfizer on Thursday morning at one of Georgia's mass site and was impressed by fast and smooth the operation was. It took just under 25 minutes from start to finish with most of that time waiting 15 minutes at the last station for a reaction.

For symptoms, the upper, outer arm muscle, where the injection occur, got sore a couple of hours after injection and lasted about a day. The soreness was limited to just that muscle and it felt like I overworked that muscle.
I got my second dose of Pfizer on Monday. The process was a little faster at about 20 minutes because they had my information on file. As for symptoms the same muscle, where the injection occur, got sore again a couple of hours after injection and lasted a little under a day. For the first shot, the soreness was bad enough for me to avoid using my arm for a day. Whereas for the second shot, the soreness was a lot less, only noticeable when moving my arm and didn't hinder me at all. I was expecting something worse for the second shot.

Received both shots of Pfizer from CVS and so far, so good. No fever or doziness or anything but normal.

Got my 2nd Moderna yesterday. The wife got hers the day before. She was tired and had a headache, but she soldiered through. I left work today early sick, first time in maybe 5 years. The 2nd shot is kicking my ass, I am exhausted and I get woozy when I stand up. Of course she keeps texting me to do stuff because I am at home, like I'm on vacation or something. Hope it doesn't last long.

You will be slightly sore but otherwise fine tomorrow. That is the typical pattern.

Had my 2nd shot of Pfizer today. It took around 4-5 hours but soreness set into my arm. Right now I'm feeling tired and drained so its working my immune system. Hopefully I'll sleep like a baby tonight.

I’m still feeling kinda washed out since my 2nd Moderna. Lol@wives. They can handle a lot of shit but then you have to hear about it for a long time. When hubs don’t feel good they’re like take a Tylenol and don’t be a wimp. I need you to do all this stuff for me. How many heating pads does your wife have?

Finally found a use for my Zune; swipe it at the injection site and my vaccine card displays on the screen. Pfizer said I'll need a booster shot after 12 months though, I guess the batteries injected wear out.

I'll just leave this here https://www.cnbc.com/2021/04/23/mit-researchers-say-youre-no-safer-from-covid-indoors-at-6-feet-or-60-feet-in-new-study.html

Garbage science that we've set as policy is just another reason not to trust the vaccine until it's much more mature.

Virus is gonna do what a virus does, you can't stop it, get healthy, exercise, take your vitamins.
so the visible fact that vaccinated people become sick at a far lower rate than the unvaccinated isn’t enough trust?

We ran large, well-controlled and well-powered experiments (aka, clinical trials) to prove the efficacy of the vaccines vs placebos, but apparently, that's not enough for some people, who think some mediocre science invalidates all the science.

No they don’t like educated people because they are jealous of them.
It is that simple.
