We got our 2nd Moderna shot Sunday (Easter!). Arm was sore and warm for 24 hours but no other issues. We've been told, full immunity could be as long as 4 more weeks. We'll maintain our Covid Vigil (masks and distancing) in any case - belt and suspenders plus elastic waist band. :cool smiley: YMMV

Three weeks after my second Moderna shot I suddenly felt far better, completely back to normal. No more fatigue, no worries at all. They always say that two weeks is the standard, so maybe it took me an extra week but that's hardly significant. It has been six weeks now and I've never felt better. My state and the neighboring state still have mask mandates so that helps me psychologically as well.

My stimulus money came via a Debit Card this time. I gave most to my two children as I have done in the past. But this time, I left a bit for myself. That last bit I put on my account at the local coffee-house/watering-hole near me which has somehow managed to survive and is now in the process of reopening their inside service. And with the weather warming up their piazza like outdoor area is as tempting as ever.

Stimulus money? What's that?

I got the Moderna shot today. UNC had a nice setup at the Friday Center, a conference venue not far from campus. Very orderly and no wait except for the 15 minutes post-jab.

DD got her first Pfizer shot today. She lives in Mid City LA and said it was just 10 minutes away at the Expo near USC. She called yesterday lunchtime for the appointment today and wasn’t even on hold. She has her second shot booked for April 27.

She turned 40 end of February so was very pleased indeed to get it so soon.

Well in CA she's not suppose to get her shot yet unless she has some specific health conditions or work in certain jobs.


Not as egregious as say a month or two ago when you heard about some cases of jumping lines.

In a week it will all be moot.

Depends. The state says no, however, some counties have opened it up to 16+.

Yep. Not all cities and counties follow the same rules as the state. I know Philadelphia is on a different schedule than the PA rules.

Its been 16+ for well over a week. On the news today they said 50% of those between 16-50 are done. It will go just as fast in other regions

Yes, my daughter age 38 and grandson age 16 were able to get their shots last week in Tennessee even though the state wasn't opening up for those ages until yesterday. They found an individual county that was open to 16 and up and got the shots there.

We of the "pension class," who pay all the taxes, know not of this "have lots of money, but little income" which fooleth the tax authorities into sending checks to rich people.

Anyway, good for you for putting the stimulus money back into the economy, as was intended.

That's true in Contra Costa County, which is moving faster than the rest of the state. Los Angeles County is still only open to 50+. They will go to 16+ on April 15 when everyone else does.

Wow, it took three weeks? I'll remember this, and not worry if it takes me weeks to feel better.

Plus UC Davis, Berkeley, and SF according to Mayor Breed .... it'll go fast for you too especially since the Dodger Mass Vaccination site will stay open for 4 more weeks!! Hope we GO GREEN in June

Got my second Moderna shot on March 30. Was not feeling that great before the shot and the second shot increased my fatigue, gave me a bit of nausea for two days, a sore arm and some swollen lymph nodes. I'm feeling a lot better this week than last week and wonder if I should have waited a few days to get over a bit of a flare I was having of a chronic illness. Ended up taking 1 1/2 days off of work to rest. Still glad to have it done despite a few rough days.

Received the J&J vaccine yesterday at 10 a.m. at CVS. I had been holding out for the J&J vaccine. I was first on the schedule and they were well organized and no wait at all. The shot itself was painless. Busy the rest of the day washing outside windows and some yard work, etc.. No sore arm or any issues. Woke up this morning with some little aches and pains but nothing more than the usual. Did some work on the computer early, then went to gym, then took the grand dog for a half hour walk. This afternoon I mowed and did yard work for three or four hours. No issues or sore arm yet. Hopefully I am good.

I got J&J yesterday at 12:30. By 6:30pm I was feeling bad enough that I went to bed, by 7:30 I was shivering and feverish. At 11:30pm when I was less awful, I took my temperature and was at 102.1. I spent the night tossing and turning and aching. Today started pretty miserable, mostly due to very poor sleep I think. but I got better over the course of the day. I'm very excited to be a couple weeks out from pretty good protection. I still want to get the Pfizer vaccine when it is available to be purchased in some number of months.

I would wait to see if there's a need for modified boosters to address the variants.

Some epidemiologists are saying we could still have some kind of surge next winter, even if we are able to drive down the cases and vaccinate a large majority of the population.

No clarity on how long immunity lasts either.

So we may go through this dance again in November.
