I signed up on the VA waiting list. A few days later I got a call. Then my shot was postponed due to the snow. Got it Thursday. Yea! Mild reaction for a few hours. My body immediately recognized an intruder and went to work on it. Kinda' like a mini-flu. Second dose is next month.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I am getting my 2nd on Wednesday. 1st was no problem except when I reached up for a coffee mug the next morning. A bit sore. That was it. A little worried about the 2nd but it wont keep me from getting it. My Wife's second had her having chills and a headache for less than 24 hrs then back to normal. Jim

I get my second shot on tuesday. The wife has had both and had chills and fever for 24 hours. Seems like everyone has some sort of reaction after the second shot.

My wife and I each had 30 seconds of light headedness shortly after the second shot. Very little arm soreness. I have developed a taste for milk bones. The bite sized ones.

You gotta watch eating those dog treats, next thing you know you will start sniffing butts and trying to lick yourself.

The better half works at 2 different long-term care facilities. All of the seniors and staff have received their second shot at least 4 weeks ago. They went from 8-10 cases per day (and many many deaths) at each site to zero. The noticeable impact was after the second shot.

Whatever your reasons for not getting it are, I really hope you are able to assess information from good sources before deciding not to get it. For instance, there is misinformation already in this thread as: 1. The vaccines were not rushed, they had much more funding and many more willing trial participants than ever which allowed for a much shorter development time. 2. Bruno's statement that most people are having a reaction after the second shot is incorrect. 3. There's no proof yet that having had Covid before protects you from getting it again. A vaccine is your best defence.

Whatever your beliefs around the virus and vaccine, please make an informed decision.

You are correct, i should have said that some people had a reaction after the second shot, not most people.

Iíve mostly avoided weighing in..... till now.
I agree 100 percent with snopro.
When the vaccine first came out I had a long chat with my Dr that I trust implicitly.
He said that the concern about it being ď rushedĒ was a false narrative.
This vaccine is based in many prior years of research. What was done in the past year was to tweak it to combat this particular virus. And as the virus mutation continues they will most likely tweak it again.
I got my first shot with absolutely NO issues. Second one comes on April 2.
I recognize the rights of every one to do as they see best for themselves but please base that choice on legitimate information. Ask your Dr. And if you donít trust your Dr then you are screwed anyways.
JMHO.
Stay safe and healthy, Everyone.
Peace.
Torchie
