    Got my 1st Pfizer jab on Friday. Slightly sore arm. Nothing else. Second dose on March 30.

    Got it in Asheboro (Randolph County Community College). All drive-through. Slicker than snot. Quite impressive how they did it.

It's Johnson and Johnson, baby! One shot only. A mere week after it got its emergency approval. I consider that pretty fast. So things are ramping up and happening, everyone, most encouraging, needless to say.
    Got mine in VA this weekend too. Pfizer in SW VA. Super smooth process and the Army gents were most polite and helpful.

    Very good to hear. And my wife (who's 65) had pretty much the same experience. Just a little bit of soreness, though she did wake up with chills during the night on the day she got her shot. But other than that, a pretty mild reaction.

    Mrs. CNC got her second dose of Moderna early yesterday afternoon at a local high school. In and out very quickly. She has a lot of pain in her arm but is otherwise OK. She tends to have a very high pain threshold.

    I got my first shot of Pfizer yesterday afternoon at the Javits Center in NYC. Appointment scheduled for 4:30. Got there at 4:10 and there was a huge line outside. Waited 20 minutes just to get in the building, and didn't ultimately get my shot until 6:30 (so I missed the first half of the game, which turned out to be OK). It was like being in the world's longest TSA line, except the military workers there were making things move as smoothly as possible, and no one was complaining, unlike a TSA line. It was a very long time to be on my feet, but the line was always moving, just at a slow pace. The sign said they were doing 9,000 vaccinations there yesterday, but it felt like a lot more people than that.

    I tend to have a very low pain threshold but I am fine - I just got home from a morning of activities and my wife asked how I was feeling and I forgot that I was supposed to be feeling pain. Took one Tylenol when I got home (to manage the vaccine pain and the Duke-UNC pain) and another late this morning. I am in my 40s - my wife and I both got to go due to pre-existing health conditions. I believe senior citizens have generally had preference for the smaller vaccination centers, so most of the people in line with me were under 65, and I think they had a mechanism for those who truly needed it to cut the line - I saw an older man in a wheelchair get waved through.

    Sign of progress: the posts on this thread are now about "getting the vaccine," whereas a few weeks ago they were mostly about "NOT getting the vaccine." I like this trend.

    Years ago my physician told me i have long lungs.(might have been pulling my leg i dunno he has the MD ) Maybe to scare me to quit smoking .
    I had been fighting bronchitis and then pneumonia.

    I stopped my habit .

    I Weighed my options .i theoretically thought if this is true covid will kill me .vs a risk few side effects .
    I decided i have to get vaccinated at any cost.
    Death will change your mind .blood clots on lungs medicine for months to cure the clots.
    In no way shape or form i want any part of covid.

    It's a well known old wives tale but it's also fact, women are much tougher than men when it comes to pain.
    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    Nope. Got my post-vaccine haircut today and my male-pattern sun roof is continuing to grow, so negative on the great hair. But I will stick with real handsome.

    Haven't seen the barber in many months, I've got the Boris Johnson look better than perhaps Bo himself, people just keep giving me fish and chips on the street.

    Got my second dose of Pfizer Saturday morning. Both times the process was fantastic. Showed up at my scheduled time. Line was short and moving. Everyone was helpful and positive.

    Side effects were pretty typical. Sore arm at injection site, had some slight body aches and nausea Sunday morning. Was pretty tired too but that might have been unrelated.

    Not a trend in urban and suburban Missouri. There was an article in the paper over the weekend about unused vaccine doses going to waste at a massive vaccination event in Spittle County.

    Really? You think someone is deliberately trashing vaccines? I'll admit to knowing nothing of the situation in Missouri but that seems like a pretty improbable scenario.

    I believe there is a quote out there by someone saying not to attribute to malice that which can be readily explained by incompetence.
