    @curlyque is she a Kaiser patient? They are vaccinating their patients through their facilities in Northern California.

    @fyodor she is not. She goes to Sutter? but doesn’t want to go to their main facility because she says it’s too far for her to drive. She wouldn’t know how to use the maps app so i also have to find a place she already knows how to get to.

    I’m on the family text thread which is just my aunts, uncles and grandfather because i want to be kept in the loop with my mother gone, and they’re all posting happy vaccine photos and i’m just annoyed. She has 7 living children and a million grandchildren and it bothers me that only myself and one aunt seems to be trying to help. Anyways rant over.

    I think that CVS opens their appointments at midnight/3am/6am, so I’d consider just setting an alarm or staying up late and trying those times.

    That’s horrible, @curly. I’m glad your grandmother has you.

    I spoke to my pastor recently and she said most of the parishioners above the current age cut off have been vaccinated, which I am really happy about. I offered to help book appointments but it seems they managed or had family. They can be pretty technologically competent as can be seen on zoom calls.

    Ontario is going into another “shut down” except it really just seems the same. I of course feel for all business owners. But this half ass lockdown for the last 13 months has been so frustrating and tiring.

    For today’s occasional update:

    Pfizer has said those vaccinated will have at minimum 6 months coverage. How long coverage lasts is not yet known. Some (not Pfizer) posit that given the mRNA method, it may be possible for mRNA based vaccines to last indefinitely

    https://www.biospace.com/article/how-long-will-covid-19-vaccines-be-effective-six-months-and-counting/?keywords=covid-19

    BUT… please keep your ear to the powers regarding the length of coverage for your vaccine and how it’s managing variants.

    Also – researchers at UPenn have found at least a dozen potential treatments for active COVID infections looking at over 3000 existing compounds (both approved and not yet approved). This is a more rigorous review of activities on active respiratory cells versus the hit/miss of “hey let’s try this on this comatose patient!” approach from last year.

    Woo hoo! Got the one and done shot today in LA. It was pretty easy to get an appt once I stopped being picky. Meaning I drove an hour to get it. Woodland fucking Hills! But in LA everything is often an hour away… so no big whoop.

    The shot hurt a bit going in and my arm was uncomfortable for a few minutes. (Much more noticeable than my tetanous shot I had in October.) And my arm is a little sore now… but really that was pretty much all there was to it.

    I’ll keep you updated if anything else happens. As far as side effects.

    I just got my second Moderna at lunch. My arm is super sore so far.

    Getting mine on Tuesday! I don’t qualify yet, but an hour away in Amish country they have open availability.

    I’m getting Pfizer.

    Two of my friends got JJ yesterday!! One friend has body aches today and the other has low fever and chills, although her husband is 100% fine.

    The husband and I had that one. I’m four weeks in now, so totally vaccinated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BGM, my arm hurt for a few minutes too. Our side effects happened pretty much 7 hours after we received the shot (as did my sister’s). I wish you luck.

    Fully vaccinated but still haven’t switched anything up, although I kind of want to eat breakfast (for the first time in over a year) at like 7:00 am tomorrow at a place we know is seating people far apart. Maybe it will be warm enough to eat outside.

    My wife has announced that she won’t cut my hair anymore now that we’re vaccinated. She says that she doesn’t like the way it looks and then she has to stare at it all the time. But I love having her cut my hair! It’s the only place that I can ogle the stylist.

    We ate lunch outside at the boardwalk earlier this week. We were distanced from people but it was the first time we’d eaten in public since the pandemic started.

    Ugh, so I have a fever. We have this crap-ass digital thermometer that always tells us we’re 97, and last night it told me 94, but now it says 99.8. And my husband says I feel hot. I slept badly, couldn’t get comfortable, have aches, woke up feeling really cold at one point, then too warm. And my throat hurts a little. My ears kind of throb inside too.

    I had my appointment for haircut and highlights today, but my husband reminded me earlier this week that they take temperatures and might have to kick me out. I called and rescheduled for Wednesday, which thank god.
