    Second Pfizer shot yesterday. Arm is less sore than the first shot. Slight headache this morning but nothing too bad. Fully vaxxed :feelsgoodman:

    Was finally able to get my first shot today after some lingering health issues delayed it. Joined the Pfizer pfam.

    Most pharmacies are now offering walk ups here in SW FL so hopefully that helps get people who are just shopping and decide to drop in for a shot.

    Has anyone else had the good fortune to have this happen or heard of anyone else, or am I just one of the lucky edge cases? (I'm like 83% sure this is what's going on, anyway): around 10-days post-2nd moderna shot, full body itchy rash that comes and goes, for 10+ days since, no other rational explanation I can think of. Shit kinda sucks. :crossedarms:

    We had 70 COVID vaccine patients scheduled today, 20% of them no showed. We ended up having to throw away an entire vial, which is 10 doses.

    It’s annoying that we now have too much of the solution for the way back to normal but too many people refuse to take it bc the previous regime downplayed a pandemic and emphasized phantom personal freedoms because they were more worried about getting re elected

    All three of my kids have one dose in them already. They're older, 16 18 and 21. Youngest got dosed on the first day that the local school district had their vaccination drive.

    Got my second dose two hours ago, wife gets hers tomorrow

    A couple people asked me if I had any effects after my 2nd shot last Monday. Basically just said I had a slight headache and was sore for a few hours but I’d do it every month if needed. They acted like I told them I was on my death bed for 72 hours or something.

    I think some people just want to convince themselves not to get it or something.

    It's not even first dose people not getting it, most of these were second doses as we had only scheduled 12 first doses. Called them up to see if they were still coming in, half of the ones that cancelled said "I got it somewhere else. It was supposed to be cancelled" yet they never called to cancel it.

    It's ridic, I was exhausted after my 1st shot and slept for a couple days but I got my 2nd one anyway and never had any issues. Couldn't tell a difference. Why go half way over this, if you get 1 shot, why not finish the 2nd. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that statistic.

    I think generally people are just lazy/dumb. It was crazy to me how many people acted like going twice was such an inconvenience. My thought was if you complained about being stuck inside the past year but can’t drive to a Walgreens twice then just shut up.

    Also assume when they said that 1 dose was like 80% effective most people said well that’s good enough.

    Like the second she’s eligible. She’s 11 and we’ve semi-joked about trying to fake her age if they approve it for 12, since she’s already almost 5’2”

    This is me with Pfizer. Feel great today, minimal arm soreness.

    I did go to bed way early last night and woke up sweating, so may have slept through some symptoms.

    Thanks for the replies. I asked because I am nervous about getting my kids the shot. IDK why I’m never felt nervous about any vaccine.

    I guess I just see it like any other vaccine. My kids have received all their other normal shots on their doctor's (CDC recommended timeline I guess)... so... what's different about this one

    ...WITH THAT SAID... before allowing my daughter to get the first of the HPV vaccine I was a little hesitant. I think because I once heard some random rumor about it causing an issue with fertility. Like one example a story probably on a line of 50 people before it got to me and who knows. But that was in my head and I spoke to the doctor about it.

    So I think your nervousness is normal as a parent, given all the information and misinformation we've received, imo.

    yeah, that's what i meant above by social media.

    the hpv vaccine will quite literally prevent your daughter from getting CANCER. it's crazy how awful anti-vaxxers are. all they need to do is create doubt. not turn you into an anti-vaxxer.

    I got both my youngest daughters that as soon as they could get it. In both cases before the Doctors finished asking if I wanted to get them the shot I said yes. I knew I wanted them to get it. And that’s why I am shocked that I am even worried a little about this.

    To be fair a lot of places have transitioned to taking walk ups. My sister came with me while I got my first and the pharmacist asked if she wanted a shot too. She explained her 2nd was scheduled for the next day but the pharmacist said she could just do it now if she wanted. So saved herself a trip and got it done. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Being nervous about getting your kid a vaccine just shows you’re a good parent. Read, ask questions, talk to experts, then make an educated decision. I have two kids and I’m leaving it up to them. My wife and I both are fully vaccinated. We talk openly about the pros and cons of all big decisions. Trying to teach them to think for themselves and not just do what every adult tells them. I hope they both get it but right now only my oldest would be eligible. They have some time to decide.
