  • My lucky day!

    it has been a challenge getting a Vaccine appointment. So Sunday went on the NY state system for our local hospital and I guess I got someone's cancelation. I just cam back from my first shot. It was probably the most organized event I have ever witnessed. My appointment was for 8:30, got there at 8:15 in the after shot waiting area at 8:25.

    Great news... My wife and I rec'd our second shots last week. Our close circle of friends have done the same so we hope to return to some prior levels of normalcy within our group.

      My second shot is next week. Becky is registered, but no appointment yet.

        Glad to hear it, Rolf. It shouldn’t be so harrowing just trying to do the right thing, but good that you didn’t give up.

          Congrats to all you folks who got your jabs

          Still no news as to when elderly folk will get their shots here in Mexico. I tuned in to the Monday morning government bulletin this morning only to find out that the Health Secretary who normally gives these bulletins was absent. He was admitted to hospital over the weekend with Covid.
          Not exactly confidence inspiring.

          We live in hope that sooner rather than later there with be vaccines available.

                I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
                Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times. They had a whole army of volunteers checking you in, giving directions, sanitizing each chair before and after the injection. Even offered a bottle of water during the after shot waiting period.

                My only after effect was a little soreness at the injection site for a day. Also, mid morning on the second day I was in my shop and got real tired (wiped out!) so I quit and slept til noon, ate lunch, and had another nap after lunch. That was it, thankfully.

                My wife is scheduled for her 2nd shot this week.

                  Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second one.

                    My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                        Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves to be true. The approval for emergency use of the J&J vaccine and Merck partnering with J&J to produce their vaccine should be a big step forward. Fingers crossed.

                          After a lot of misleading communications the Mexican government seems to be finally getting it's act together. I was just sent a bulletin inviting me to present myself at a vaccination station this coming Wednesday.

                          Still no idea of which vaccine I'll be getting but if it's the Russian Sputnik V variety I think I might also get a free space ride around the earth!

                              Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm soreness, fatigue and slight headache which lasted a day.

                                Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                                Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

                                When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.

                                Here’s the pics. Or not. Won’t let me upload. Will try in the morning.

                                we had to have 2 trees taken down over the weekend. As you can see by the centers, Mother Nature was close to dropping them on our house, shed and truck. When he made the first cut the one directly behind our bedroom, it hit the ground and exploded. The one behind the shed was 100’ feet tall and had...
