I got my J&J one-shot vaccine on 3/22. Sore arm first day, was extremely tired the next day, sore arm couldn't sleep the whole night (but I was pretty blazed), today I'm still a little tired and my arm has a little tingliness from the shot. God willing, I'll be back to 100% tomorrow. Much more mild, yet slightly longer in duration than an average flu shot. I'm still following CDC guidelines for living, so I will be wearing multiple masks and other precautions until at least late summer. If the fourth wave happens, I'll be a shut-in geek for another year.

I had my first Pfizer on 3/25 at Walmart. My second is on 4/16. I am not sure how many people know that Walmart might be doing vaccines in many areas now. Based on what I heard while I was there it was the first day they were doing it at this Supercenter. And you could tell. They had people standing in line for Covid, Flu vaccines and dropping off prescriptions together. Anyway they asked what qualified me and I said Rheumatoid Arthritis and did not get asked for proof. They asked for ID and insurance card. I signed a form giving them permission to share the information with the CDC. I also confirmed that they will send my Primary the information about me getting the vaccine. Two people said yes. The way I understand the insurance deal is that pharmacies get reimbursed for what they do. The shot was a breeze. The side effect was a tiny area of soreness for a couple days. In fact I had a punch biopsy done at a Dermatologist the next morning. The area of injection was sore whereas the area where a chunk of meat was taken out and stitched up does not hurt at all. And it was the same arm.

Had my first Pfizer yesterday, felt fine at first but today my arm hurts and I’m kinda tired. Got it through my doctor's office - they set up a separate vaccination site and that place was like an assembly line. Three people to greet and check you in, at least 20 nurses giving shots, and 6 people staffing the check-out area. I had to sit for 30 minutes because I’m allergic to shrimp, but nothing happened. The old battle ax nurse who jabbed me said she had given 50 shots so far that day, and she had set the record with 87 the day before.

I got my first Pfizer jab yesterday at Walgreens. Today the injection site is very mildly sore.
A strange thing happened when I was going through the process. The guy who checked me in, before handing me the form to fill out, filled in one of the answers. When I looked to see what he had done, he answered yes to the question of if I had ever received the antibody treatment. I haven't. When the nurse reviewed my form she asked about that answer I told her the it had been filled in by the check-in guy. She went to ask him about it, and I overheard him deny that he had done it. When she returned, I said loudly enough to be overheard that I had watched him do it right in front of me and wondered why he had done it, and why he lied about it.

R104 regarding my first vaccination card for my first dose I misplaced it and couldn’t find it for my second dose. When I showed up for my second dose they had me fill out the card and then they entered the lot number of the vaccine and the date and where I received the shot . Then when I got home I found my first card and transcribed the information on to it. These cards are easy to falsify so I’m not to worried about being a bonehead and having misplaced it initially. The lot numbers are verifiable and I also know that if I need to my primary care physician can give me a new card or suitable proof if I need it for travel etc... But people should laminate it and store it with their passport and important documents. R101

They're now recommending instead of lamination, get a clear plastic sleeve (the kind you use for name tags at conferences, etc.) and put it in there instead. That way it can be easily removed if booster proof is needed in the future.

R86 is an obsessive loon posting his bullshit theories in every single vaccine thread. As if the people who are refusing the vaccine are doing so only after long consideration of whether getting the vaccine will mean they will only have to wear their mask for another month vs. two months, etc. People refusing the vaccine are already not following any mask mandates or any other protective directives. Idiot.

Why do people have to travel to get a vaccine, to a stadium or some huge place in another borough? Why can't the vaccines be given at doctors offices? My doctors office is literally three blocks from me.
The distribution process is absolutely absurd. Then again, it's the US, so what do you expect?!
One of my neighbors said Walgreens is offering the vaccine.
|by Anonymous||reply 133||Last Monday at 9:55 PM|
R133, the US is actually doing almost the best in the world at getting their huge population vaccinated. Doctor's offices do not have the cold storage needed for some of the vaccines. They also have a limited clientele. The majority of our citizens don't have their own doctors anyway. Do you think doctor's offices want to be overrun with people seeking the vaccine all of a sudden? It has to be centralized. Eventually, after the mass demand dies out, they will be given to doctor's offices. Right now, you'll have to travel a bit farther than a couple of blocks, R133.
And, yes, Walgreens, CVS, and other pharmacies across the country are giving vaccines through a partnership with the federal government.

I got my first Moderna shot last week at Rite Aid. When I scheduled the appointment, I didn't know which vaccine they were going to give me, nor did I care by that point.
About 4-5 hours after the shot, I began feeling very sleepy but resisted the urge to take a nap (it was mid-afternoon), opting for a walk, which perked me up and got me through the afternoon/early evening. Definitely wanted to go to bed earlier than normal, and I slept like a friggin' ROCK! (which is not the norm). It was the most restful sleep I've had in ages, and I felt perfectly fine when I woke up the next morning. Except for the sore upper arm, of course, which lasted a couple days.

Received second Pfizer dose last week. I was fine the day of injection but the next day had a slight fever, nausea, chills, muscle aches, fatigue and cold symptoms. It was nothing unbearable and essily dealt with by sleeping it off.

Just got my first dose of Phizer. No side effects, but did wake up with a very sore injection site (arm) this morning.
Looking forward to my second one in 3.5 weeks. I just realized that the only people getting the shot were minorities, except for one elderly lady who was white.
Living in a TRUMP County is great, because according to the lady who was injecting us, there aren’t too many people showing up for the shot, other than minorities.
As soon as appointments opened up I for my age group, I got an appointment easily, and I managed to get in there and get out pretty quickly without long lines or issues.
Glad I got it.

That was me. You can still laminate your card, just make sure whatever lamination process you use is not one that actually glues the laminate onto the surface of the card as you won't be able to cut the lamination off if we get a 3rd puncture at some point (unless the vaccination site can provide you with a new card listing all three punctures).
Home lamination machines (at least the ones I know of) don't stick the laminate to the card. They stick to each other on whatever amount of lip you leave around the edges of the card. That would okay to use as it would be easy to cut the card out.

That's not any sort of answer you imbecile.
If drug stores (Rite-Aid, Walgreens etc) can give out the vaccine, why can't appointments be made for people to receive the shots at their own doctor's office? Much in the same way people get their flu shots at their doctor's office, what's the difference?

Why don’t you ask your physician what s/he doesn’t have the vaccine at their office instead of an anonymous message board? I’m sure it’s something as simple as explained above, nothing nefarious.
And I’m sure part of that poster’s ire toward you had to do with your seeming neediness when we’ve all heard of people driving hours or across state just to get it, and you’re complaining because they’re not knocking on your damn door with a needle in their hand waiting for you to roll up your sleeve.

It's a much simpler process to get the shot at a vaccination site. You just get the shot and leave. If you get it at a doctor's office, you have to wait 30 minutes in the waiting room, and then they want to take your blood pressure, weigh you, etc., so they can turn around and charge your insurance for an office visit. It's a big hassle.

Just got my final Pfizer shot yesterday. First one I felt a little tired and my arm was both throbbing and numb in entirety. This then began to go about halfway down my back on and off for about a day and a half. Since yesterday, I've felt fine, just low grade fever. A few hours after the shot yesterday I did feel very tired but was unable for some reason to sleep. The night was spent restless, not sure why, I didn't feel bad, just couldn't sleep. So glad I'm done! Husband has same timeline as me. After first dose same symptoms, but his second dose has really taken him out. He's very sore, hot and cold flashes, low grade fever and he has been sleeping a lot.

The first Pfizer shot made me high in a good way. I had a body high and was really talkative. I just chilled and watched movies. No reaction other than slightly sore at injection site, but was like a tetanus shot pain level and went away the next day.

I got my Pfizer shots at a mobile vaccination clinic in Midtown LA. No lines. Just went in, got my shots (walk-in 3/11, appt 4/1), waited 15 minutes, then left. My parents, OTOH, got theirs at Kaiser, by appointment, but my mom had to push my dad in his wheelchair a long distance through the corridors and waited in a long line. Some appointment! They're both 80+ years old, and not in good health so it was a taxing experience, especially for mom.

I got Pfizer yesterday. Today, body aches like the worst flu I've ever had.
BUT I had Covid in January, and they say you may have a stronger response if you've already been infected. Plus, I have long Covid and have body aches every day anyway, so I wasn't too put out. I took a nap and they were gone after I woke up.
Some people with long Covid say their symptoms finally went away after they got the vaccine. I hope I can say the same. I'm worried that this virus is still in my body—or my body thinks the virus is still there—and it's causing damage, and who knows how that will manifest later.

Why would you need to have your blood pressure and weight taken just to get a vaccine? I got my flu shot at my doctor's office, I wasn't charged for the shot. I didn't get weighed or had my blood pressure checked. I also had to go for my yearly blood tests. I made sure to have everything done in one afternoon.
Because of Covid, I needed appointments for both, otherwise, I wasn't charged for anything which needed to be done. Most of my doctors are in the same medical building, as is their on-site blood lab. A nurse gave me the flu shot, not my doctor.

Nothing yet, and don’t expect to get at least my first shot til May. Canada’s rollout has been dismal, to say the least. We’re definitely in our third wave, and it’s proving to be the worst. I read an article this morning that senior health officials are worried that the 3 known variants, which are all present in Canada, are taking over and our rate of vaccination won’t be enough to contain them. ICUs where I live are overcapacity, and we’re seeing more people under 50 occupy those beds. That’s scary. I’m less worried about my folks getting covid than I am about them needing ICU care for something else.
