My 65 yr old BIL had his 2nd vaccination and went to bed feeling ill....woke up next morning feeling like a child.

I'm 60 and retired so guess I'll have to be patient.

Awesome! I'm 60 but diabetic so I'm getting my shot next week. Hope I wake up feeling like a child again LOL!

Covid cases and hospitalization are also down by 45%.


While this is the kind of news we hope for - the question in my mind is: is the vaccine causing this drop, or is it that we're simply past all the "gathering" holidays like Thanksgiving/Christmas, etc??

I think both.

The medical journal also came out with research findings that 1st dose of Moderna and Pfizer is giving virus protection upwards to 90%.

I'd be concerned about length of protection with Pfizer or Moderna with only one shot. The mRNA it seems would require dual shots for 'distance running' rather than one dose rated at ninety percent permanent - for how long does that last. Because we are still in the beginning stages of this vaccine, I'd sooner take two and feel more comfortable than wait and say, 'well, should have gotten two.' Too late, says the doctor. We can't have that.

I had second shot of Moderna today, and so far, no side effects, same with first shot, no side effects during the thirty days between.

I'm certain cost is one factor, but knowledge is another. Sometimes cost over-rides safety of patients, and that's backwards. Safety of patients, even in a new medical frontier, should always come first.

WE got the second shot (moderna) this morning.
So far zero reaction for both of us - Not even a tender muscle like the regular flu shot

Yeah, that's still an open question --- and if Covid 19 will be around us year-in-year out like the fllu.

Seems we are getting good news everywhere from my friends, kins and former colleagues on getting early calls for vaccination.

Seem key is to put your name out there, whether city or county health centers and pharmacies in the neighbourhood.

The administration is hitting and exceeding their goals starting at 1 million, then the president wants a more aggressive 1.5 million and the latest, they are doing 1.7 million.

My sister and hubby, younger than me, got an earlier 2nd dose. And they are in the more populous California. Not in priority vulnerable high-risk profiles too.

I am getting my first shot this Thursday. I have been eligible for a while now but due to getting a pneumonia booster I had to wait three weeks. Then the snow/ice storms delayed vaccine shipments.

Hope all goes well with you.

We both got sore arms on the next day. Then I got pain in my armpit (swollen lymph nodes?) after a week.

My sister got chills.

Nothing much adverse side effects among my kins and friends that can't be handled by Tylenol, lol.
