My second shot (Moderna) is due tomorrow morning. I scheduled early. That way I can take my Advil to counteract the pain that came with the first one.

Let us know so we can prepare for our 2nd dose too -- and it's Moderna.

Thanks,

I'd like to tie in a question to this thread if you'd be so kind.

I have a retired friend who is 65 and has had both shots " everything went well " and my wife's retired parents ages 75/78 have yet to be even scheduled for 1st shot.

How has my perfectly healthy friend received both shots before more elderly folks.

That's the same question wife's parents asked me today after they've filled out all necessary paperwork and after several phone calls for scheduling.

Vaccination priorities are not just by age, certain chronic diseases can move one up in priority as can jobs; these people can then shift older people farther back in the line. Different jurisdictions can alter the priorities based upon jobs and different jurisdictions get different quantities of vaccines (changing how much of their line has been vaccinated). All of this means where you live (and how many people who are eligible to be in front of you want the vaccine) can make a big difference where you fall in the line.

In MD, you can get vaccinated where you live or where you work. Since I work in one county and live in a different one I can preregister in both counties (the state allows this). My place in the line is different in these two counties for the reasons listed above. I will get vaccinated in the county where I get to the front of the line earliest. It appears I am closer to the front of the line in the county where I work.

75, diabetic, AV pacemaker, lupus and central sleep apnea

Got me instant attention.

Now I have to arrange the 200-mile trip to get a Moderna jab or chance getting a SINOVAC jab down here.

Not having a wheelchair crimps my vaccination plans up north.

Difficult decision considerations.

Sinovac from China has overall 72% efficacy.

Moderna had 80% on first jab and 95% after the booster.

Basically what BCSnob stated. I'm only 60 and got my first shot an hour ago (Moderna). I am a diabetic and have a couple of other issues that factor in. It's possible the friend has issues you are unaware of or some other circumstance that gives him priority. When your in-laws get scheduled should be dependent on what group they fall under.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

True!

And even if there is a federal guidelines, each state have their own priority -- example, frontline workers, to some states, these are just health workers. In others it include law enforcement personnel.

It becomes for complicated to those who have underlying conditions, also with sub-group as to those conditions and at what age.
