I have an appointment tomorrow morning for the vaccine. My coworker got his yesterday and said he received Pfizer so I'm assuming I'll get the same through Kaiser. I fall under "food and Agriculture" as a food producer. I'm only 39 years old. At first I felt guilty for accepting an appointment because of my age and the fact that others a lot older than me can't get theirs yet. But then I realized the more people that get vaccinated, the better and we can move forward to better times ahead.

FWSO got the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine today.

Has anyone had that one yet? I'm wondering about side effects.

I got a call from a friend of a friend type of deal. There were 3 extra doses the clinic didn't want to waste & she asked if I was interested. Got the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine. My arm was a little sore, and I got hit with the fatigue side effect. Slept for most of 2 days, but doing well since then.

No appointment scheduled for the second dose, but have a phone number to call within a date range for when the second dose should be available.

Got J&J early am Sunday. Other then a lump where the shot was I was ok. I was inpatient at the hospital something unrelated.

Neighbor's son got J&J Saturday. He had a sore arm, headache and maybe something with his neck? Only lasted a day. He is mid-50's and got it by underlying condition at a state site.

I'm so frustrated because although our governor said on February 25 folks like me (underlying conditions but under 65) could get it, in reality there aren't enough vaccines. And tonight it was announced that on May 1 everyone should be eligible. Does that mean if I haven't gotten mine by then, I start competing with healthier and younger people? Meanwhile the two states east of us are currently vaccinating 50 and over. Even my brother who is over 65, has had a heart attack, AND is an essential worker just got the first does yesterday.

My two siblings who have gotten both shots said the second shot knocked them right down for two days, with 2-3 more days of feeling pretty tired. Both got Moderna.

The issue with 50 states all having their own systems is likely apart here. Everyone here, likely the state you mention being 50+ now, stated that you have to get on a website and keep refreshing. It took me 10 hours yesterday, but suddenly one of those sites had a number of slots open up. They were gone in a half hour. of course the 50+ is a million people or 9% of the population all became eligible at midnight yesterday

In some places, not having as many places that dispense the vaccine is at least part of the problem in having appointments available. Here, there seems to be a need in some places to allow more categories of people to get the vaccine now.

There is a distinction in different types of places as to who can get shots there. For instance, drug stores are only giving shots to over 65 here, and I was called by two different places where I had my name on their list, saying I could get vaccine that same day (Monday, I think). But I had already had my first vaccine. It made me wonder if they filled those slots or if that vaccine was not given that day.

In the last week or so, several supermarket pharmacies were added in this area, meaning more slots are now open for those over 65. Maybe more than there are people still looking for it. Hopefully the state will allow them to open up those slots to other categories in order to get more people immune. I'm thinking/hoping that soon any open slot can be filled by anyone wanting one in order to use the quantities they are receiving.

I had the Pfizer and had no side effects whatsoever. I work in a large hospital which employs 5000 people: they all had the Pfizer and no one reported anything. It can make you tired for a couple of days and give you an achy arm but thatís it. The only people who can be a risk are the ones with a history of severe allergies. Having said that, there were only two cases of allergic reactions (in the UK) out of the 20+ millions who have been vaccinated to date, so that needs to be put in perspective.

Itís the Astra Zeneca that is causing all sort of controversy here in Europe, with some countries suspending it after a few patients developed clots. But with Pfizer and Moderna no severely adverse effects have been reported to my knowledge and, since they are the ones being administered in the US, you should be quite safe.

This time last year we were in Hawaii, on Kauai. I wound up at urgent care with swimmer's ear and had a prescription filled at a local drugstore. That store called me last week, inviting me to come in for a shot. I'm in NJ, lol.
Wonder if the travel would be tax deductible?

Lionne, that would be an offer I couldn't refuse!

BC just bumped up my age group to April. I'm so excited, but then again life has been pretty flatlined lately so it doesn't take much...

BearlyBreathing posted 3/18/2021 22:36 PM

California is all over the place. My friends who are 60+ can mostly get theirs, but one cannot because she has no co-morbidity and isnít considered essentialó even though sheís a 59yo CPA doing taxes like crazy for people. It will be while for me and it is hard watching my friends get theirs and I want to go out and play with them. But by summer... look out ! Iíll wear a mask or whatever no problem, but I am really restricted in who I see or where I go. So excited!!

Two more drugstores texted me this evening that they have vaccine and open appointments. One is also holding another clinic this weekend in a local building with lots of openings. All appointments are only for first shots of Moderna and only for those already on the state's eligibility list.

The local news said many appointments at the state and county sites are still open and some vaccine may be going to waste, but the state did make more eligible, so no idea why unless the eligibility is not effective until next week? I know a number of people waiting for it to open up to all adults.

I received my second Moderna last Friday and SAturday was a cross between being hit by a truck and having to stay home from work. Being it was a SAturday, I didn't have to do that but would have.
My husband and son's work gives their employees the next day off, if they need it.

That was my wife's experience after getting her 2nd Moderna Friday. I had my first tuesday and went ahead and took the day after my 2nd appointment off.

My elderly neighbor got Moderna. The week she was to get her second shot, her son brought her electrolyte drinks and set up his phone to remind him every little while the week days before to text her a message of encouragement with a reminder to hydrate with the electrolytes he had heard would help her keep from bad side effects.

She also had heard that keeping the vaccinated arm moving would help keep the soreness down. So, she lifted light weights while sitting and made arm circles and other movements for the first 24 hrs or more.

She says it must have all been good advice to practice, because she had minimal side effects and felt fine. YMMV, but it may work for you, too?

Does having a preexisting condition like asthma or COPD factor in at all to which vaccine is best?

Jeaniegirl posted 3/25/2021 11:08 AM

I was unable to get my second vaccine of Pfizer last Saturday due to pneumonia and the medications I'm on. So now I'm on the hunt for an appointment. NONE available. We have to go through the health department for all appointments and their online site is just screwed up, constantly. I was told to wait two weeks for the second vaccine so having to HUNT for it now. Frustrating.
