That is good to hear.

 

Oh, how I hollered on my way to transit when I read that. If only.  I've been joking around that getting the vaccine's motivation for me is that two months for now I can do just that.

Well...set up for Thursday. And as I type my mother is getting vaccinated.

 

This week though...:) 

Glad to hear that you and your mom are getting vaccinated. Your family has been through a lot.

@Juliajms thank you. I hope the rest of the family is willing once it comes time for them to get their shot as well.

No hunk? Maybe on the second one? 

 

I got mine on the right arm. I slept for a week on my left side to avoid any pain. Anyways the male hunk/nurse told me I could take Tylenol if I experienced pain from his injection.

 

Glad things went well for you minus not getting the hunk.

LOL!!! Oh, you.

 

Yes, I'm sleeping on the non-shot side as well.  Better safe than sorry.

So these people, who dropped their other "Lost Cause", after it flopped, have latched onto conspiracy theory mongering over the vaccines. Someone needs to start following the money because, guaranteed, there are people making money from this, as they were with the other Lost Cause.

I was able to hug my 27 year old grandson this weekend.  I can't remember when anything felt that good!

Glad to hear!  And who was the guy? Where and when? He probably realized you were safe since you were vaccinated

I managed to get my first shot today, although the roll out here is a mess due to govonor Ricketts. The county program is only doing 55 plus. The clinic I went to had hundreds of open appointments. So I waited until just before the cutoff time and made an appointment, even though I'm only 47. I half expected to be turned away, but no one even questioned it even though there were like 5 check points.

 

What a waste of resources. They had everything set up and staff there. They should have opened it up to people with a comorbidity or younger people. Instead about 400 appointments went to waste. When I first signed up I had some ethical reservations about jumping the line. I'm still not sure it was right, but I volunteer at a residential home helping elderly folk with family visits. Right or wrong I'm happy I got it, both for myself and the residents, some of whom can't get get a vaccine due to their conditions.

For some reason I thought you had already gotten your vaccine. Glad you did!

 

My parents were in lines for hours for the vaccine. I tried going to the same local as them but no way was I waiting 8 plus hours to get vaccinated. I was able to go to my local clinic and was done in about 30 minutes. The clinic was better coordinated than where my folks went.

I have to say that out here on the north left coast, things have been run extremely well.  My grandson is fully vaccinated as he is an educator.   All teachers jumped the line here by order of our governor.  People were clamoring to reopen schools, but got a bit testy when teachers got extraordinary treatment.  Some people only know how to bitch!

Thank you! I'm glad you were able to get it without much waiting.

 

I walked in the building and within 5 minutes I had the shot. There was no waiting until the 15 minute period where they watch for reactions.  Unfortunately I live in a state where a lot of people are completely convinced this is a bad vaccine. It's incredibly frustrating.

So true! Teachers absolutely should be prioritized.
