Well today I had my  Covid Vaccine. I had the Astra Zeneca  (Oxford ) version of the vaccine.

Anybody else had their vaccine ?

 

As a high risk essential healthcare worker I am in a priority group so among the first to have it along with the elderly.

I let you all know if I grow an extra head ???

I'm up for it in February as far as I am told, my Chief asked if I wanted on the list, I do, sick of this crap, if getting the vaccine means getting back to normal and not worrying about transmitting it to my at risk family I am all aboard. my wife and mother are teachers and aren't yet eligible... go figure.

My wife got her first shot on December 18th and second on January 8th.  Pfizer.  Everything appears to be fine,  over 300 were vaccinated at the small hospital where she works and she has not heard of any problems other than a few were tired after the second shot

Not here. I'll be way down on the list anyway. Have a cousin that had a slight allergic reaction. Wasn't serous though. I may take it when available which like I said will probably be awhile. Gotta get the essentials first which I agree with. Not so sure I agree with rich celebrities and athletes skipping the line for it though. I mean an athlete should be prime not to need it as bad. Hopefully it works and things start returning to normal.

Was at the Dr. Monday for annual check up.

Doc said I could get it this week.

Told him I would give up my place in line to some one that really needs it.

he said I could get it later wen its more available.

told him NO not interested.

He claimed that there needs to be 95% vaxed to gain heard imunity

Told him I am in the 5% and dont run in herds

He gave up :D for now.

I went through the same conversation with my doc last week too. 

He confirmed my understanding that it doesn't prevent infection and doesn't prevent transmission from you to others if you get it - just prevents the severe symptoms in those vulnerable to them.

It should help, but hopefully something better that prevents the infection will come along soon.

If this is true then I dont see one darn restriction being lifted? Wife and I read similar out of a news report on one of local stations online.

Wifey and I were able to get in this afternoon for our shots. She had us on a list on-line through the city of Austin and we got assigned a time to come in. As I post this, we are only a little over 4 hours removed from receiving our shots. Probably too early to tell anything regarding side effects, so will have to post here again later if I start feeling any.

We received the shot manufactured by Moderno, which is a two part shot. We are now slated to get the second shot on Febuary 13th. I got the shot in my right arm, I am right handed. I didn’t feel a thing, quite possibly the easiest shot I’ve ever had. I could only feel the girl applying the alcohol on the cotton swab to my arm, and didn’t even feel the injection itself. I don’t like needles, so I was looking away, but wifey was right there and she said yep she jabbed you. I was sitting there trying to remain still and calm, waiting to get stabbed and the girl said all done and I didn’t feel a thing. She was good, lol. 

Kind of relieved it’s over now, at least the first shot is done. Will be glad after we get the second one in 28 days. We got a card with all the info on it, stating it was the Moderno vaccine, part 1, lot number, date for return for the second shot, etc.

I won't get one anytime soon but thats ok with me. I looked at the arkansas priorities for vaccination. It goes out to April and I'm not in a listed category. Too healthy I guess. Thx-Ace

I was supposed to get mine, but NY keeps boogering it up. After they've thrown away doses on account of impossible-to-comply rules, now we're told, it'll be April before we can get an appointment. There are people flying out of NY to FL and getting vaccines.

I suggest going with Pfizer...

They make Viagra, and if they can bring the dead back to life, a virus shouldn't be any problem!!!!!!!!!!!!

Work is offering shots in the near future. I have no doubt it will be required in order to be at work or have a job in the not so distant future.  
 

I am also sure there will be exceptions for medical reasons.  Just like the others vaccines.

 

I also predict there will be travel requirements, shot record or proof I order to travel to some countries, maybe two years

Mom's 80s.  She got the first shot Friday, second day they were giving them.  I signed her up a couple days before, very easy.  It was at the hospital clinic, no additional paperwork other than a handful of questions (are you sick now, have you been).  Got there about 15 minutes early and she got right in. They watched her for 15 minutes after.  Saw about 5 others there, most I've seen in the waiting area at once.  It was the Moderna one, "out here" that's the one we'll get because they don't have the capability to store the other one cold enough anywhere near here.  No issues first day, she was knocked pretty good the second day.  Very tired, headache, mild nausea.  Today, better.  She said she handled it ok and doesn't regret doing it.
