    Yesterday. Arm is sore after 20 hours. Still waiting for that overwhelming desire to buy Microsoft products.

    Kidding aside, wife and I have both had 2 shots, daughter has had 1. My wife has a few medical issues so I'm happy she's vaccinated considering those mutant strains on the news.

    Excitement, relief, looking forward to getting back out to play. Blessed I live here, really.

    Good news!
    I still have to wait for my second (I had AstraZeneca so 9-12 week interval), but hubby got his 2nd Pfizer this morning.
    Got my daughter's first today but they wouldn't take my son. Have to come back in 3 days.:(

    Our area is pretty low on infections so there isn't a huge urgency. The Fraser Valley where my step brother lives is a real problem area so they pushed everyone ahead to vaccinate everyone. Their whole family is vaccinated. He and his wife both have #2 as of last week and the kids have #1.

    I'm on the CEV list because I've got a busted immune system so they bumped me ahead slightly. I got my second on Thursday evening. My arm was sore yesterday and I was a total write off for the day. Today not so much and I feel back to normal. My wife gets hers July 2nd.

    Hopefully we'll get the vaccines in arms faster than the variants can move. That's what'll determine our path forwards and opening up. SeattleStock and Eurostock here I come!

    Two weeks ago I got #2, and today put out my first feelers to (the few) people I used to jam with semi-regularly.

    Really glad to hear that many more people continue to have access to the vaccines. Here in the states it looks like we might be approaching our asymptote before long. Most people who want to get vaccinated probably have by now, and the persuasive techniques and campaigns to combat misinformation of all kinds are in full swing. Herd immunity through vaccination seems an unattainable goal in most countries, but at least case/death rates are steeply declining in many places.

    The extra fingers come in handy for those difficult chords, but the extra toes demand new shoes. The microchip bump on your behind will go away after a day or two but the QR code on your forehead is there for good.

    The next door neighbor - widow of about 75 - tells me this morning, she's not getting the vaccine. She said you respect my choice and I'll respect yours.
    I told her point blank she was wrong.

    There's little I can say when she keeps coming up with the common conspiracies found on the internet.
    Some of them were whoppers. Zero research into the medical facts. Refuses to ask her doctor. She's very bossy, gossipy, stubborn.

    Her husband died last March. She said if they had diagnosed him dying from Covid she would have sued them??? wtf???
    She's putting her house on the market this week. I pity the real estate agent that has to work with her. Really.

    She's one of many who unfortunately are reducing our chance to get the % (of first doses) high enough to remove all the restrictions in our province - the last to be lifted is playing live music.

    Somehow it has become fashionable for people to wear their ignorance like a badge of honor. I have my theories as to what caused this.

    I think a part of it is rampant Dunning-Kruger.
    A little self-educating gives somebody the knowledge to second-guess the medical establishment.
    "Doctors? Bah!".

    John Adams feared that our very origins bore the seeds of the anti-intellectualism that is the American hallmark today.
