    Got my first Pfizer today. My neighbor administers the shots and it was the end of shift. She had an extra a few extras so she called me and asked if I wanted one otherwise it would go to waste. Said sign me up. There was an HVAC guy there working on something and the nurse asked him if he wanted it. He jumped on it and got the last dose.

    Asked the lady administering the shot if it was a bad idea to drink tonight, after receiving shot, and she said nope which was surprising to me.

    The first shot of the Pfizer vaccine made me tired as shit last night and this morning. That seems to have worked it’s way out of my system. Now all I got is a sore arm.

    Probably going to end up being a lot more Pfizer bros than Moderna bros. Apparently Pfizer has been a lot easier to acquire than the others.

    J&J vaccine about 34 hours later is doing some weird things to my temperature. We recently moved and I couldn't find my mouth thermometer but both of our touch thermometers had my temperature under 94 degrees. Ran to the store and bought a mouth thermometer which says I'm 99.8. Come home and both external still have me under 94. Probably a difference in the style but it's crazy thet are almost 6 degrees different

    Had my Maderna shot Monday afternoon. She apparently can punch as hard as her cousin, Madea. My arm is still not 100%. I slept like crazy and ate a ton. Today I was 100% back except for my arm and a little burn in my stomach.

    It's weird because now all 3 are within .3 of each other, at 97.4 through 97.6. They were 6 degrees apart last time I checked. Either way I'm alternating between borderline fever and chills. Glad I bought the mouth thermometer because it scared me a second seeing two read under 94 because that would have meant hypothermia.

    Overall it's not too bad, feels like a mild flu or something. Getting muscle weakness at times but not constant

    Well, that shot knocked me on my ass good. Finally feeling a little better today but could go right back to sleep. TMB doctors, does this mean I most likely had the virus at some point?

    77 days after my 2nd Pfizer, still haven't gotten sick. Ate out at a business lunch yesterday for the first time in over a year. Also keep forgetting my mask now that I'm less worried about it, so I now have extras in all our vehicles and my computer bag. Two thumbs up, looking forward to getting stabbed again soon.

    We did a 6 mile hike through the jungle w the doggos right after my Moderna on Tuesday and my mom called to chew me out.

    Only side effect was a sore arm, very similar to the tetanus booster.

    Apparently it's a real thing but.... I've got the Covid Shoulder from my right arm vaccine earlier today. It has gradually felt heavier and like if you haven't thrown a football or baseball for a while and then went out and threw heavily.

    This would bother me if I wasn't left-handed :smug:

    all universities and colleges in indiana will be doing mass vaccinations of students this spring. ND will receive enough pfizer to vaccinate all ~12K undergrads, graduate and professional students. so for you pfizerbros, you can take that as a positive or negative, that's up to you.

    but it's really awesome. we're going to make such great progress in the next couple of months

    Pfizer Pt. 1 today. Awful headache all day, but feeling a little better now. Arm pain isn't even that bad.

    Pharm friends suggested getting the shot in your dominant arm. Using it more will help minimize pain. IDK but mine isn't bad at all.

    Our company just announced that all employees and members of their extended families would be able to get vaccinated in mid-April at a local medical center with 2nd shots in May. Would love to know the inner workings of how they managed that. The company is very active philanthropically so maybe that helped

    4/8 is my second Moderna shot, and the wait feels like an eternity.

    Someone dear to me just suffered full kidney failure last night after being unconscious on a respirator for the last couple of days.

    I want this to serve as a cautionary tale, because he’d gotten his second shot and a couple days later exhibited symptoms. He’s a boomer and just figured he was bulletproof. He ended up infecting his whole office and now he’s going to die.

    Please keep wearing your mask, and for sure don’t take your first or second dose and think you’re good to go until the requisite time has passed.

    Well said and thank you for sharing. After the first dose you can still end up in bad shape.
