    Ewww, Boss? Is there a boo-teek version I can use instead at an unnecessarily higher cost?

    Why yes. MT-2W Waza Craft edition is said to be more "evolved".

    So far few side effects have been reported.

    I am 70 with several qualifying factors. My wife is behind me a few months. She also qualifies in Texas as a classroom teacher.

    We are both going to sign up as soon as they release it here.

    I'm looking forward to my jab, sleeve rolled up ready for the call.
    I have several qualifying factors to move me up a group, but given that my GP surgery are locally known for their incompetence and inability to communicate, I'll probably still be waiting this time next year.

    Not sure I can see myself getting it without much more known about side effects. I don't want to be kept from dying of covid just to die 10 yrs later due to whatever the vaccine caused ie cancer, etc... Now if I was 65? I'd do it no problem. The only issue now is I'm high risk because I've had heart & lung problems ever since I got pneumonia and almost died in 2013. I've got fluid in my chest right now as a matter of fact.

    DIn 2013, there was so much fluid in my chest it was crushing my heart to half its normal size. So it was also pumping twice as fast to keep up the volume needed. At rest, my pulse never went below 90 or 100. It was a bad, bad time. The surgeon that cleaned my lung out said I literally could've died at any time from my heart being crushed. Since then, I've had issues that never went away.
    .

    So I'm kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place. Not sure what to do. I don't want to die from covid but I don't want to die 20 yrs early because of unknown issues down the road caused by the vaccine.

    As a school employee (over 50), received mine yesterday. In a perfect world it would have been nice to wait for further trials etc. but my parents live with us so willing to take risk getting it. My wife works in healthcare and got hers already as well.

    Being a military retiree, I've taken more shots than Gerry Cooney--Too soon to tell today, my arm is a little sore but no worse than typhoid or Anthrax shots

    Wow...ugh :(that sounds like that really really sucked. I hope you figure it out sir. Best of luck to you.

    My nurse daughter had the shot about a week ago, just a little tender the next day, she’s been totally fine. Glad to hear so many are already getting vaccinated. Hopefully gigs are soon to follow...then I’ll have a job again!

    I had my second dose this morning. I’m 12.5 hours in, no side effects other than a sore arm so far.

    Vaccines have done a lot of positives for humanity. I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is, and trust the process. Hopefully they can eradicate this garbage disease.

    Congratulations! I live in Florida, over 65, and I have wasted hours trying to get an appointment, while sign up log ins have crashed.

    Sorry to hear that. Hopefully they can get this all going. Very important work.

    Florida seems to have it's act together. My aunt and uncle in Fla. are also dialed in for a vaccine.

    I'm Covid free today. Finished out my 10 days of isolation yesterday.

    Because of my age and other factors, last week while being informed of my positive status i was offered a monoclonal antibody treatment called Bamlanivimab...which I got the next day. Nurse said it became available nationwide (US) in December. While that's not a vaccine it is a treatment to keep higher risk folks from getting worse and being hospitalized.

    My experience was (for the most part) pretty mild and I'm glad to have it behind me now.

    Florida is incompetent in their roll out, particularly South Florida. It is well documented. Yes many people have gotten vaccines, but millions who qualify have not.

    I'll be getting my second shot of the Moderna vaccine 1/20/21.
    Believer 7713 described it well. It's like getting hit in the arm by a hardball. My pain only lasted 4 to 6 hours overnight. No big deal.
