I got my 2nd vaccine on Tues. The past two days I've been having slight headaches but otherwise I feel good. I took Tylenol for my headaches.

Great that you had little discomfort!! Which vaccine did you get? I've heard lots of people with second doses of pfizer, but none for Moderna.

Thanks! I received the Pfizer vaccine.

So I received an email (two actually) today that due to supply issues, my February 1st appt for the first shot is cancelled.
I teach and can’t understand how it is that I can’t get one in my county! :snooty:

That's excellent!

How did you sign up? I am probably way way way down the line for any eligibility but want to make sure I do "get on a list" when it is possible.

I don’t want to like this post! That’s horrible @Slick1! I read that many states were expecting vaccines to be released from a reserved stockpile..only to find out there wasn’t a stockpile. States don’t even know how many vaccines they can expect. It’s just awful...

On Thursday night at 11:30pm I got a text from DuPage medical to do a questionnaire. Two min later I am approved because I have a dental hygiene license. First available appointment was next day! Monday was available ever 5 min all day.
BTW I had a choice of Pfiser or Moderna. I had a better feeling about Moderna.

Thanks @MamaBee it’s really irritating. Especially to have gotten on line early to now be summarily tossed off. A lot of my colleagues were cancelled too. A colossal mess!!
Fingers crossed I can get one soon. I am in the classroom full time again this week and the community does not take pivoting to remote learning well. :(

Gotcha!

Agree about the Moderna BTW; if given a choice that is what I prefer too.

Given that I'm now straddling Cook and Boone counties (where my condo is vs. where I'm staying at TR's) and neither is making much progress in this regard I will be lucky to get ANY vaccine in the foreseeable future...

I’m shocked I got in in less than 24 hrs.. absolutely no side effect. There are dozens of unfilled appointments for Monday.

I wonder if all the people who are in the qualifying criteria know its available to them ???

It definitely depends where you are located. NYC and NJ have short supply for the vast number of people who want to get it and are eligible to get it. NY gets only 300,000 doses a week for the 7 million who are now eligible to receive it. Even if one isn't good at math one gets that most people who are eligible still cannot receive the first vaccine. :(

Forget about the general population because we don't even have enough vaccine for those in the first 2 groups who are eligible.

Ugh! So frustrating!!!
This is exactly what I was worried about.
I am sorry @Slick1 and hope they can reschedule you ASAP.

Ugh @Slick1 to be so close and then have it snatched away. We’re hopeful DH will be notified soon that he can get an appt for the vaccination.

It is so different depending what state one lives/works in....I have friends who are not in healthcare who got the vaccine already because their states have more plentiful doses for their population. I am happy for them. Thrilled for them in fact. I do wish though that all the states received the appropriate number of doses population dependent. Meaning if one lives in a state with a lot of people that state should receive the same percentage of doses as a state with a smaller number of people. Does that make sense?

You can get the vaccine in any county- or state for that matter. It is a federal program. I had to go to a nearby county to find mine. If I waited for my actual county I'd probably be waiting until April or May

Interesting. In NY at least it states one must live or work in the state to receive the vaccine. That is the official stance anyway. I don't know if it is being enforced.


And same for NJ...

Missy- I don't think they can enforce that. I have heard of lots of people flocking to Florida from other states and even some Canadians!! I have also heard of some people coming to the state I live in from out of state, too. Maybe the process New York has in place they are screening out people from other states, but that would not prevent New Yorkers from going to other states to get a vaccine- at least not right now.

Has anyone else been reading the articles about the 29 deaths after receiving the Pfizer vaccine in Norway? These were all elderly and sick people to begin with, but Norway is investigating about whether to continue injections to this group of people based on these deaths.

I read about the death of a 56 year old ob/gyn who has no pre existing conditions. But still being investigated. It’s tragic. His wife wrote about it. They have young children. :(
