Hopefully they are not going to require an email as this is a dealbreaker and totally unreliable one of the most dangerous things on earth if you listen to the cyber security commercials
which I don't know how anyone can trust the cyber security commericals either because everything they introduce they immediately claim is the most vulnerable thing to cyber attack there ever was,
only to be solved by the next thing they introduce

almost like no one can be sure who is actually doing the attacks,

We know we can Not trust the cyber securities, because 60minutes tells us periodically how the US is so grosly inept in the computer wars vs other, any other country.

plus email never reliably transmits messages, or allows access to see those messages.

I chose voluntary.

I think the reason being, on election day 1976, I, at 19yo, sat with my grandmother 10'-12' outside of the veryvery small Richmond Hts. Hospital emergency room for 15-20 minutes listening to emergency room doctors working on my grandfather yelling....."HANG IN THERE MR. P". "HANG IN THERE MR. P. "HANG IN THERE"......

..........silence.

Dead

Pulmonary Adela. Lungs filled up with fluid.

They attributed it to the swine flu vaccination he received that morning. Every time I hear or read the term "vaccine" I think of that night.

I know it's a psychological thing but.....

Just........Dunno?

That's a sad story. I remember how much I cared about my grandparents. It must have been tough on you and your family. Very tough.

Sorry to hear that. Losing somebody close to you like that can certainly be traumatic. Just try to be objective, try to weigh the best current science available.

I'm due on the 27th. There's a lot of anecdotal evidence that the side effects are worse with the second injection, more incidents of fever, chills and joint aches. People at my facility are just starting the second shots this week I believe. I'll find out soon if this is true.

Iím now circumventing my office and seeking a vaccine outside their direction. Itís absurd that as a frontline worker Iím having to navigate this in my own. Yet here I am. My girlfriend, also a nurse, got her first jab on Sunday. Iím in a queue waiting for a return email with directions...

That really sucks. I don't know if you have a Kroger pharmacy out that way, but I was able to sign up my elderly mother in law. The county portal said there were no slots available, but I went right to the Kroger pharmacy website and was able to make her appointment. She gets it this week. Given what you do for a living, you should be at the front of anybody's line.

My mother in law is 82 and lives in a very rural town in Tennessee. She was able to receive her first dose just last week. We were very concerned given her location if it would be available for her. We will rest much easier after after she gets that second dose.

My mom is getting her first one this evening. I was getting worried because it took so long for them to get back with her. Iím relieved.

I got my second one this morning. My arm is definitely more sore than it was with the first. Other than that, no other side effects yet.

Portland, Iím really sorry you are being let down with the poor management of all this in some areas.

Had my first shot yesterday. Slight headache for a few hours then nothing. Woke up this morning with a sore arm. Might have to keep my motorcycle ride to an hour today laugh

Finally!
I was out seeing patients this morning when my girlfriend called me. She doesnít call me when she knows Iím with clients. So I knew I needed to answer... she found a vaccine clinic website to get me signed up. She, also a nurse, managed to find one and get jabbed this past Sunday. Ever since sheís been on the search to get me vaccinated too. Today she scored. Big. I was able to sign up for mine at noon tomorrow. I turned my coworkers onto the clinic after I got my appointment lined up. Many of them jumped on it. Over the next few days me and many of my coworkers will finally get their first dose.
A huge relief for me and my teammates. I wonít lie itís made me a little emotional. This has been the hardest year of my 23 year career. Iím a Ďroll with the punchesí sort of guy, but the underlying stress of all this has been weighty. I feel at least some semblance of hope and relief.
The reality is this virus is likely going to be with us for longer than anyone really wants to admit. But if I can keep my 48 year old self from severe illness Iíll take it as a step in the right direction.
Iíd encourage you all to roll up your sleeves when the time comes for you to do your part.
Be safe everyone.

My arm was sore as hell for several days after the first one

After second dose my arm was sore for a bit but I was pretty achy and really fatigued the next day... I spent the day resting on the couch... then I was fine...

I have had some employees who had fevers and more severe achiness/fatigue than i had... but overall side effects haven't been too bad

In a meeting yesterday, my boss informed us that a lot of people are feverish and achy after the second shot, and to plan accordingly....meaning make sure our work is caught up. He said that the symptoms seem to be peaking late in the day, the next day after getting the injection. There are only 3 people in my department and 2 of us are getting our 2nd shots Wednesday.

Well I have a sore arm for sure. More than any other vaccine/shot Iíve ever gotten. Itís not unbearable but itís certainly tender.
Last night I dealt with insomnia. I canít say that itís related as I deal with insomnia all too often. I had to get up and take a half an Ambien last night. That did the trick though I only slept for about 5 hours before woke up feeling wide awake. The Ambien only Ďfoolsí me into falling asleep, it doesnít always keep me there. Hopefully tonight is better. It often comes in 2-3 night waves. Again likely not related to my vaccine... though it is the arm/side I sleep on and I certainly felt the ache in my deltoid more when I laid on it to try to sleep. So, slightly related??

The more you move your arm the quicker the soreness goes away. It's like walking the day after surgery. You know it's going to hurt, but the sooner, and the more you walk the quicker you feel better.
