Yeah I wonder. I had an odd cold with some lingering breathing issues at the beginning of March 2020 that I got a week or so after being around co-workers from Seattle. Testing wasn’t easily available at the time so I never did get tested. I chalked up most of the breathing issues to anxiety, but now I wonder if I did indeed have it.

I also have type 2 diabetes and non-Hodgkins lymphoma so that may have made my reaction worse to the 2nd dose (and has also given me anxiety this entire past year as to how I would handle covid).

Whatever the case, I’m very happy to now be fully vaccinated.

I'm so glad you're fully vaccinated. Blessings to you for your health issues.

Vaccinations opened for 30+ in New York State as of tomorrow. Now finding an appointment will be a struggle.

My mom and I have an appointment for a week from Wednesday to get our vaccines. First time I think I've ever actually been excited to get a shot.

Our landlords got vaccinated recently, which is a big load off our minds, since they live right below us.

My dad got the Pfizer shot today, I'm really relieved as he was the only one in our closer family who didn't have COVID so he was my biggest ongoing concern. Yes, there are a couple of weeks before the first dose is fully effective +the wait between doses but I still feel way better today than I did yesterday!

My mother got a shot on Saturday in Brazil, which was a huge relief given how bad things are.

Get my second shot Wednesday.

Mom has had both, dad is one shot in, MIL is fully done as well.

Now just need to get my wife vaxxed and we're good to go. People who work in media just became eligible in DC so it's just a question of waiting for her name to be called, which is kind of stupid. We can't figure out how to mass vaccinate in the District, apparently.

I'm getting my second dose on Thursday and go back to work in a hybrid schedule April 26th before teaching full time starting May 17th. It's time, really, and I'm going to spend the next month adjusting to the psychological challenges involved with returning to society after 13 months in the house being fed horror stories.

Still waiting here in SoCal. I don't think I'm eligible but have heard stories of my coworkers getting the shot since our Tier was supposed to be opened weeks ago. They took their corporate letter and badge and got the shot(s).

Might have to get online in the early, early AM to see if I can find a location that has appointments available.

My entire family back in Iowa is vaxx'd, so that's good for them. Should be safe for a while, especially considering how crap Iowa's response had been.

Selfishly I want to be done.

Get my fauci ouchie tomorrow, if only because I carefully looked at the rules in MD.

DC is so behind and VA is so bad at communicating that... I’ve been eligible for over a week in VA but nobody said shit. To make matters worse, Fairfax County isn’t following the state guidelines. Anywho, I don’t know yet if it’s Pfizer/Moderna/J&J.

Dang man, glad to hear you’re all vaxxed up. Hopefully you can rest easy now and ease the anxiety.

DC's government legitimately sucks.

Well it doesn’t help that everyone from MD and VA who works in DC has pretty much come into DC to take their vaccines and fuck off, meanwhile MD prioritized their residents and didn’t clearly state DC residents were welcome. They do some non legalize bullshit by using the term “Marylanders” in all of their requirements, but in the fine print they say everyone is welcome.

Thanks LN7, yeah I've handled it better as the year wore on, but I definitely had the worst anxiety of my life that first month of lockdown (along with millions of others I'm sure.)

My wife and I get our second Pfizer doses in a couple days (helps to work in a university). My dad got his first dose, but I just found out that my mom, who is my dad’s primary caretaker (he had polio as a kid and his mobility has gotten progressively worse with age), has decided that she’s not getting vaccinated.

Among her “justifications” are:

-the vaccines are experimental and not even real vaccines (false)
-All the vaccines contain fetal tissue (false)
-She doesn’t want to live in fear, man (if you read her Facebook page, she’s afraid of A LOT. Mainly socialists, marxists, communists, BLM, antifa, etc...)
-Our deaths are pre-ordained anyway, so... (this is just bonkers. She claims to be a devout Catholic, and this is not a Catholic belief in any way)

Prior to her deciding she’s not getting vaccinated, all of my siblings and I were crystal clear with my parents that we’re not visiting until they’re both vaccinated. We’re preparing ourselves for quite a battle, and lots of guilt trips, but she brought this on herself. I hope my dad can snap from the right wing funk enough to push back on her.

Got appointments for me and my wife this Saturday. It will require a short drive to Staten Island but I’m not complaining.

This is so frustrating.

A good friend of mine says his Mom (super Catholic) is also refusing it on the basis that it's made of fetal tissue. He's sent her many articles and back up that should dispel these claims, but hey, the priest mentioned it kinda sorta plus she read it on FB. There is no getting through to these people unfortunately. And in my opinion any clergy that is passing on this nonsense should have their tax-exempt status stripped. You'd be surprised how quickly they'd have their come to Jesus moment on vaccination then.

Sounds like a couple of my aunts. Same kind of family battle. They want to all get together since we didn't have a Christmas party last year, and my parents are saying "not until everyone has a vaccine'.

The fetal tissue thing is pretty ironic considering the right wing's god and savior Donald Trump shot himself full of Regeneron, a medication tested on fetal tissue, to save his own life from a fake disease concocted by the left to destroy him.

Hope your Mom comes around Diemen.
That's got to be extremely frustrating and disheartening to have to deal with.
