J&J for me Wednesday, my wife the week afterward.  It feels good to be getting it.  I'm 64, and have high blood pressure, cancer in remission, and have tried hard this past year to stay away from people, and only doing so masked up.  We haven't seen our daughter, except via a car, or the web, in a year's time.

I admit to being a bit emotional after my first one.

The first nursing home/extended care facility I led my team to vaccinate was
late December...when I walked in with the cooler full of vaccine, the residents
had lined up on either side of the entry and were cheering us like we were
liberating Paris. I will never forget that moment.

Going into 4 months now, having given (literally) thousands of
vaccinations...and I remember every face. It's something that I honestly
cannot put into words.

Had my second covid dose (Moderna) on Saturday afternoon, I've had a high fever and nausea since Sunday morning. Hoping to wake up tomorrow feeling better!

It's now been more than two days since I received my last shot (Pfizer) and though the first few hours, I had no side effects, since then I've only had some slight soreness in the area of the arm where I was given my shot. This is pretty much similar to my first shot, except I recall feeling the soreness earlier on. Otherwise, I've had no issues.

My mother, whom I accompanied when she got her shots over a month ago, didn't have any side effects. She also got the Pfizer vaccine.

California seems to be behind the curve of many other states, BUT I did finally get an appointment for my COVID-19 vaccine!

My parents are already vaccinated and I live alone and always mask-up and social distance, so I have been lucky so far!

Just curious:  Once you're fully vaccinated, will you travel then?

My wife and I are 2 weeks away from being fully vaccinated and we have a cruise booked for February of 2022.  We definitely intend on going.  And it appears cruise lines are going to make it a requirement to be vaccinated if you want to cruise.  

Mind you, we both wear masks when we go out and will continue to do so.

Here's my thing about requirements for vaccinations
before you can access certain things. I can see both

I can see the need to open things up and the safest way
to do that is only allow vaccinated people access.

but, you don't get to choose your vaccination dates - so
you don't get to choose if you want to access or not,
that is dependent on the vaccination date to which you
have zero control.

Now, if I was the moronic person refusing a vaccine,
that's on me.
But I'm not. My wife is not. My children are not. All of
us have to wait for the vaccination.

So it surely has to be coupled with tasting for those not
vaccinated yes (and even for those vaccinated since they
can still be a carrier)?

Got my second pfizer shot on Friday. The first one resulted in some soreness and tenderness that night in my arm but this one had no side effects as far as I could tell.
I'm an essential grocery worker so I am glad to be vaccinated.

My parents both got their first shot today, the Pfizer one. It could've been earlier but my father had to have surgical procedure and essentially this had to be a little delayed. They are both in their late 70s. They took their info over the phone but they got one letter in the email address wrong on my mother's registration (also one letter in my father's first name on his), but we got the confirmation and date and time appointment for him and she went along and they still did her even without a confirmation number under some kind of accompanying spouse plan. Not sure why this involved so much security stuff with numbers anyway.

The real topper though for them is this was at the local University gym and when they came out there was $30 parking ticket on the windshield! So stupid that there is someone handing out tickets like this. They've had so many problems finding any parking at the hospital for my dad's various appointments because it has had no fee parking for anyone since last March because of covid. So we have lots of geniuses in charge over here... not. I'm just relieved they didn't deny my Mom's vaccine because of their operator getting the email wrong in one registration and then getting it right in the one right after... exact same email used. I also wonder what they expect seniors to do who don't have a daughter with an email address and aren't connected? yes, there are some. Like I say, great geniuses, probably degrees even.

I'll be glad if they are both relatively still healthy in a couple weeks, and even gladder when they've gotten that second shot. It feels like we've endured a lot to get to this point, and all the anti whatever fools and have to go to church types everyone could do without, but especially those most vulnerable!

Waiting for my shot!

Funny coincidence, the guy ahead of me gave his name as Byrd. I didnít realize this was in alphabetical order!
