Was definitely like a hangover. Would have moments where i felt like i was coming out of it and then I’d want to do nothing but lay down. Wasn’t really hungry either.

Still feel a little off in the head today but basically 100%.

Now avoid any covid for 12 days to make sure i reach the full protection!!

Wife and I got our second shots yesterday. No reactions for the first, but we both feel sick today - mostly cold symptoms but nothing too terrible.

Got the second Pfizer shot yesterday, and so far after 24 hours, nothing except a slightly sore shoulder when I woke up this morning.

It hit me after about 19-20 hours.
Got the 2nd Pfizer shot Monday afternoon, woke up pretty much fine yesterday, slight soreness in the arm, went to work so as not to break my Ripken-esque streak (haven't stayed home sick since February 2008 when I missed a few days after contracting something nasty after a flight home from Phoenix, some think it was the flu, but most likely it was a reaction to the noxious fumes emanating from the 20lbs of Stick-um on David Tyree's helmet).
All was good till roughly 11:00 when started to feel tired then got a vicious headache. That lasted into the night, napped when I got home had something to eat, felt a bit better, still mild headache when I went to bed.
All good today.

I don't recall the feeling of it going away, but I had more than a few nights my first week back to work where I had to excuse some really boneheaded mistakes I made and blame it on the covid. Just moments where I was completely blanking about really normal standard parts of my job.

I just got shot 2 (Pfizer) yesterday!
A little more pressure, and a bit of an ache that went right away.
This time I used Arnica cream and night when I woke up (anti inflammatory)
While my 1st shot the ache (only on lifting arm) went up to a 3 for 1/2 a day-
I haven't gone past a 1 this time.

I'm at 34 hours past shot. No other effects.

May 14th will be my (semi) Liberation Day!

Of course, will continue to mask, and distance in general. In a park/garden on a sunny day with few people around I will! unnmask. I'll keep an eye on the news, and hopefully will be able to unmask more maybe? Hopefully no worse varients. Later I guess we'll be getting booster shots.

I'd be curious to hear how fully vaccinated people have gradually changed their habits. What kind of things are you doing now that you weren't before? What types of gatherings are you comfortable attending?

I'll be officially fully vaccinated (2 weeks after my second shot) this weekend, so trying to think about this a bit more. We are not planning any radical changes of behavior, of course, except for our son going back to daycare finally. We will likely only sit outdoors in restaurants through the summer, maybe do small gatherings with vaccinated friends at home, and I generally feel much safer already going into a bookstore, record store, or just getting groceries. But I'm genuinely curious how others are approaching this - especially those of you with unvaccinated children.

2019 I set a record for myself with 37 flights.

2020 post pandemic went down to 3.

I’m ready to slowly start ramping back up again...

i am returning to life as normal - as much as that is possible with continued restrictions. i'll still wear my mask where it's required and follow whatever restrictions are in place - but i have started going without it outside now that the CDC has changed the guidance there.

any concern that i had over catching this thing and bringing it home is gone. yes, i know that it's technically still possible - but the odds are very very low.

if the odds of getting this thing or spreading this thing were as low as they are for vaccinated persons back in March 2020, nobody would have ever gone into lockdown. life would have proceeded as normal.

i fully support the use of vaccine passports and i do not give a turkey about hurting the feelings of those who willingly decide that they do not want the shot. guess what? you don't get to go to the sportsball game. but i do. you want to? great. get the shot. no? tough. deal with it. can we make exceptions for the incredibly small number of persons who have a legitimate medical reason for not getting the shot? of course. but if you just don't want to get it for whatever dumb reason? ok. go home and fold your tin foil hats. you don't get to come to the party.

i have zero fear of sending my children to schools, camps, or taking them on trips. we'll still keep them away from larger crowds for the most part - at least for now - but that's not really an issue as there really aren't any indoor large crowds anyways. and the overwhelming number of cases of children catching this thing have been either asymptomatic or mild. severe covid in children is exceedingly rare.

we took this thing seriously. i understand the hesitancy of returning to normal - but once you're vaccinated? it's time to get on with your life.

We’re now doing outdoor gatherings and enjoying what’s been a really nice spring. Outdoor dining is fine as well, but we still default to take out, usually, and not quite ready for indoor stuff. I’ve also stopped wearing a mask when walking the dog, but still give people plenty of space on sidewalks out of courtesy (don’t want people to think I’m a selfish Republican asshole responsible for 100s of 1000s of needless death).

But that’s about it.

Thanks for the considerate responses. It's really hard to abandon newly-gained habits, but I'm here for it. The main thing I'd love to do - travel to Brazil - is off the cards for the time being, so I'll be happy to enjoy what I can here. Just getting our 2-year old to daycare for the first time in 14 months feels like a major step forward.

I'm going on a solo trip next in 10 days. Nothing crazy - out Thursday night and home early evening Sunday.

By the time I even get on the plane at BWI it will already be the longest I've been alone outside the house that wasn't directly associated with work since early March 2020.

And I love my family and all, but holy hell is this needed.

I've never worn a mask outdoors to begin with, with the sole exception of lining up for my COVID test. Just wasn't ever in any circumstances where there was such crowding as to necessitate the mask. Our kids have been in school and in daycare in person the entire time with the exception of government mandated shut downs.

We now know that people who had COVID and who got one dose of either mRNA vaccine are fully vaccinated. Not only do they produce higher levels of antibodies than non-COVID people who have had two shots, but they also show an adequate response to variants (that response is reduced in those who haven't had COVID). I am following the science in that and since basically my entire family has had COVID and has been vaccinated, I have no issue visiting my parents in their home or my brother's family.

Although I know I'm functionally fully immune my life hasn't changed because almost nobody I know here is fully vaxxed and leisure travel has not started up again. Once it does, I would definitely travel with the kids.

Where I would still choose not to go for a while - cruises (if ever), city vacations where you're indoors a lot going to museums, restaurants ,etc and have to mask up), indoor concerts or other packed events.

I don't get my second shot until early next week. Two weeks after that I look forward to feeling much more comfortable doing things.

Not exciting to most people, but I can't wait to go back to an actual movie theater. It has always been one of my favorite things to do. I always used to go on off peak days and times, so I would still do that.

I would love to go to a baseball game. To a theater show, ballet..whenever those start up again. To a museum.

I didn't travel that much before, but I would like to again once my life circumstances allow.

I only wore a mask outside when I couldn't distance enough, ex on a sidewalk or bike trail. Even though it was required in my state, I thought it was overboard and used my common sense. Always had a mask with me. I have been very responsible, but I see no point in getting vaccinated unless that includes more normalcy.

I look forward to simple things like being in a store and not having fear of covid.
