@rcjtraveler Thats wonderful news! My second Moderna shot is due next Thursday. I’m holding my breath hoping I don‘t get rescheduled. I live in Pa where a big mix up happened. Some pharmacies and other providers used the second shots reserved for the people that already had the first dose..They used them for first shots creating a shortage of the second doses...I may get my dose rescheduled to after 28 days. :confused:

Hope all goes well for next Thurs. I really do think it is ok beyond the 28 days, though. It is so reassuring to finally get the second one, so I completely understand the anxiety. Sorry you had to get caught up in the mix up. Right after DH got his second shot today I heard I will be able to sign up for my group on March 22. I just missed the cut off for the group my DH was in. Just excited it will be sooner than they originally said by about a month. I think with the additional vaccine availability it will go quicker. At least that is my hope! Good luck with next week!!

I drove my husband 7 hrs round trip for the shot by the air National guard last Saturday. He is much more relaxed now that he had it. No reaction #1 Moderna. We go back March 27. My daughter got #1 Moderna today in Oregon. She works with college students.

I received my first shot of the Moderna vaccine this morning.

I was one of the first appointments. Realizing that I was going to the the first person for the person giving my vaccine, I started worrying about watching her draw up the vaccine with the same needle and told myself "don't cause a scene if you see this, you will get through this". Fortunately, all the syringes were preloaded. The woman who gave me the vaccine was wonderful...told me she's been a nurse for 10 years and fast.

Sure enough, it was super quick and completely painless. I almost wondered if she even injected anything....but my sore arm is telling me she did.

Afterwards I joked "how can I get you for my second vaccine".

Thanks to everyone for their kind words.

My Mom managed to get an appointment for one of my brothers (they're 17YO twins) so yay! Now she just needs one more appointment. Next will be DH but he has no CDC comorbidities so he'll have to wait until more things open up.

I found out today that I WILL be going back to teach in person, I am so glad I jumped on the opportunity to get the vaccine when I did!

It’s very nerve wracking @AprilBaby. That’s great he was able to get it. Seven hours in a car would make me nuts but I would also do it.
How’s the lymph node on your collarbone?

Had my first AZ one earlier this morning, mid 50s with an underlying condition.

In and out in less than 10min, very efficient.

So far so good except for soreness around the injection site, and I shall take it easy and have plenty of Paracetamol in case I need them.

I’m having a CT scan next Tuesday because it’s been 6 weeks and not going away. Thanks for asking! :cry:

Thank you! I’m not really concerned about breast cancer, I think it is vaccine related, but it’s been 6.5 weeks of not going away and I have a history of pancreatic cancer. In fact it’s 5 years this month it was found. I’m happy to get a CT and get told it’s vaccine and have nothing to worry about!

Big hugs @AprilBaby I’ll be sending you good wishes and virtual hugs all day Tuesday!

I had the Johnson and Johnson vaccine today. Four hours ago, no reaction yet. I can't feel the shot spot or see where it was. From what I read there was a higher incidence of side effects in the placebo group. The incidence of fever was 9%.

We'll see how this works.

Thanks for mentioning that you received this shot, @MMtwo. I'm curious to see the immediate effects of the J & J vaccine, ie, will there be "symptoms" as with Moderna?

12 hours out. My temp is normal. No arm pain and still can't see the shot area. Am I the first with J&J on this thread? I did some reading but not much to find except generally mild after effects.

It got canceled at the last minute because insurance had not pre approved it yet. Reschedule for next Tuesday.

By 3 AM I had mild chills, slightly elevated temp. Today slightly achy like I spent yesterday scrubbing walls or something, but feel okay in general.

Received my 2nd dose of Moderna in mid-February. Had a sore arm for a few days accompanied by a low grade fever the first night and fatigue. It’s been such a relief to be able to work and go out in public (still masked) without being super paranoid and sanitizing my hands obsessively.

That's upsetting especially because the vaccinations are free to all right now with and without insurance. Delaying vaccinating because of this reason is egregious because the longer it takes to vaccinate everyone the more risk for variants to develop and the longer it takes to reach a sufficient vaccination level. Makes me angry they canceled it for that reason. :angryfire:
