Just now received my 2nd injection of the Moderna. Will go out for my steak dinner 8 days from now.



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

Good, bad and worse news.

The good, my parents in law received their first shot today, all went well, we'll see how it goes.
The bad, they've been cancelling follow up shots all around here, so who knows if they'll get the second dose
The worst, They don't think my wife (at high risk) should take the Moderna nor Pfizer vaccine, too many possible complications and her combined risk factors all work against each other with the possible side effects from the shots.

So what now, keep waiting...



It looks like the effects of getting a single dose of the vaccine (Pfizer, in this study, but likely others) are gigantic.

Look at these levels of protection among who were infected + vaccinated. It exceeds the immune response of those who were merely vaccinated by orders of magnitude! In fact they are so high that cross-immunity against the original SARS virus, which is separated by centuries of genetic drift from SARS-CoV-2, is higher than the neutralization elicited from infection against the original strain.

Got my second shot on Thursday. Arm hurt about the same degree and length as the first shot. Had a few mild ~flu symptoms this time, but quickly got over them. Mom's now a couple weeks from her second shot as well. Another month and I should really be able to breathe easy again.

Curiosity since I'm getting my second (Pfizer) shot a week from Friday: How long did the flu-like symptoms last? I keep hearing about those resulting from the second shot. Also, did they give you your second shot in the same place on your arm as the first? I ask the second question because here nine days after my first shot, I can still feel some very mild soreness on the muscle that took the first shot and that makes me a little concerned about how getting a second shot in the same muscle might affect it.

My symptoms lasted for 2-3 days. Same shoulder. If that's a concern maybe just ask them to inject your other arm next time.



Received my first vaccine dose. I'm the last member of my immediate family to be vaccinated. I'm grateful we all made it through the year without getting sick with Covid. We tried our best to be safe. My mom works at a hospital and directly treated Covid patients.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

First dose. Arm is a little sore. Other than that, I’m all good!
