    Default Covid Vaccinations

    Got myself and other half signed up on a waiting list here in Schertz this morning. Good way to start our day cause can't celebrate the weather we are going to have for the next few days. Now where did I put my muckamucks?

    Other half and I are now signed up for the first shot this Wed (3/3/21). Will report on side effects if any. My daughter (nurse) said the first shot was no biggy but the second one gave her some issues (headache, general feeling under the weather) for a couple of days. That was about a month ago and she has been fine since. Great relief for me when she got vaccinated since she was dealing with covid patients.

    Both myself and other half arms are a bit sore at the injection site, not as sore today as yesterday. Other than that, nada for side effects.

    Other half and I got our 2nd shots (Pfizer) this morning. Will post in a couple more days about side effects (if any). I did an email survey of the dual sporters I meet with on occassion. About half have been vaccinated and no major side effects to report.

    O.K. Two days later and nada for side effects. They say it takes a couple of weeks for the full possible protection of the vaccine to kick in. Stay safe and healthy out there.

    5 months later and still nada for side effects. I had hoped the USA would be in a lot better shape by now. Too bad so many decided not to get vaccinated. There's no way to know if it would have really made a difference since so many decided to roll the dice. I do know that my daughter (a nurse in Alabama) is paying the price for other peoples decisions. She says they are short staffed and overrun at this point with no end in sight. My wife and I were planning to travel in September to visit friends and family. But the surge is still growing and we both have noticed the lack of precautions everywhere. So we've decided to delay until October. Hoping that the situation will be better by then. I have my doubts.

    Now it looks like the Covid vax may become a yearly thing along with the flu shot. I've had the flu before and it's nothing I want to repeat. I won't be skipping either vaccination in the future.

    Hope you all stay safe and healthy. Please be considerate of the safety of others if not yourselves.

    Other half and I got the booster shots last week (Pfizer). Sore arm for a couple of days and nothing else. We will be traveling soon and wanted as much protection as we could get. Things have finally improved for my daughter as Covid cases have finally started to decline. Can only hope that the holidays don't bring another surge.

    Hadn't updated this in a while. There was a surge early this year and my daughter really had to struggle thru it. Short handed and paid less than hired guns brought in to make up some of the difference. I really worried about her. Even more fun, she also caught the covid and it knocked her off her feet for about a week. Fortunately she recovered and there is no current surge happening.

    On another note. I'm aware that a second booster is available. The general consensus seems to be that its' full protection is short lived. So the other half and I are holding off getting the 2nd boost until another surge appears to be occuring (fingers crossed that this doesn't happen).

    And for all you Veterans out there, I wish all a good Memorial Day.

    Another late update. Wife and I still haven't got the 2nd booster. Too much conflicting info out there as to whether or not it does any good against the newest versions (4, 5, and 2**). I suspect by the time they have a tested effective vaccine for these, some other version of the virus will come along.

    We were planning a trip with a stop in New Orleans for a day but I just canceled our hotel reservations for that part of the trip. I looked at the recent data for N.O. and my comfort level with being there took a dive as opposed to the virus info numbers which are climbing. We really enjoyed visiting N.O. in the past but there is no way to really social distance in that town and do the kinds of things we enjoy there.

    Hope all stay as safe and healthy as possible. Once more into the breech ....
