I got the J&J vaccine today!

Iím so excited. I wasnít supposed to get mine until phase 2. However, my sister in law is a pharmacist and she called and said they had a no-show for the J&J vaccine...and if I could get to her within 20 minutes, I could have it. I know people are sick of hearing about vaccines...but Iíve got no one else to share it with and Iím just thrilled.

35. My side effects thus far

I got mine on 3-9. My arm felt fine, but I was dragging all day long today, I feel run down. I don't have a temperature. I got up to work, checked my email and took a nap. Feeling a little better tonight, see what tomorrow brings.

Where I went to get my vaccine was the most unsafe environment I've been in since March of 2020. No social distancing, people crammed into high school lobby. It was efficient though, took a total of 45 minutes, the line went around the school, and this is a big high school.


Peace

97. Okay...side effects. My shot was yesterday afternoon at 3:30pm.

I felt fine all evening with nothing but a sore arm until about 10pm. I got some chills that lasted most of the night. I went to bed and turned on the heated mattress pad and slept pretty well. I woke up feeling great! Iíve got a full day planned and donít feel anything other than the sore arm. Hope that will be that. Be sure to tell us how you do.

20. I'm so glad you got it, those "leftovers" should never be wasted

Something similar happened to my sister last month. Her friend was volunteering at one of our vaccine sites and there were a few left at the end of the day. The friend called my sister and said get down here right away, we can vaccinate you today (because she knew my sister was having trouble getting an appointment.) It was short notice but Susie made it down there and got her shot. A lot of times those extra vaccines have to be thrown out because they're no good by the next day.

I do believe I read that the storage requirements for the J&J vaccine are less stringent. Leftover shots can be saved for later if they don't use it all the same day.

In a few months there will be enough for everyone to get vaccinated. But right now is very crazy and stressful.

53. Today I scheduled an appointment

for Friday morning for my first shot. I don't know yet if it will be Moderna or Pfizer, but Moderna is the one being given most often in my area. Was not going to mention it here because I know how frustrated I felt before, when I was not able to get one. But it is a great relief to finally be getting it. I have been thinking all day about things I will be able to do after the second shot.

I will still mask up, of course, as Fauci recommends, but I look forward to the next time some anti masking covid denier gets up close to me in a store with a bare face or naked nose. I will just say, "Nice try, but I've been vaccinated."

27. I understand how excited you were to get the vaccine.

My daughter is 47, overweight, and worries about being diabetic.
She was concerned she wouldn't get the vaccine until perhaps May.
She lives in New Mexico.
A week ago she got called and was told to come in the next day.
She practically danced into the vaccine facility.
So, I know how it feels for you.
I'm not sick about hearing about people getting the vaccine. I feel better and better each time I hear that another one of our community got the vaccine.
I think things are really looking up. It's gonna be a good spring.

Iím self employed so can drop what Iím doing at a momentís notice most of the time. My husband will be eligible when 1C opens up...he would have taken this shot today if he couldíve.

I signed up for my vaccine, don;t know which kind but I hope it's the J&J kind so I only have to go once. Lucky you but I'm also glad to hear that the J&J type is in the state. Our county ran out a couple weeks back, like the same time the J&J vaccine was approved, I was hoping it would give the county a chance to get that kind. At any rate, my category was given the green light on Monday so I am hoping I'll get my call-in soon.

Congrats!

There's an Albertson's up at the county seat that has a pharmacy. I called my dr.'s office today to inquire and I was told I was put in the system and that I would be getting a call back soon. 1C category opened up on Monday so I am next in line, I guess. I don't know where I'll end up to get the shot as there are more than one location for this operation.

79. Hmmm. I wonder if 1C will open up Monday here?

My husband is 1C due to BMI. I'm lurking on the vax scheduling websites hoping for an opening. He should have taken the available available vax today because I'm really phase 2 but he had his hands up the wrong side of a duck that he was sewing up and couldn't leave on short notice. He said "go go GO!" So I went.

40. I had a similar experience.

My local Kroger had me on their pharmacy list. While on a brief stop at the store, one of the associates who knew me said I was on the list and if I wanted a shot go ASAP to the pharmacy. A shot was available after a person just "canceled" their appointment! I was so excited I could barely relate my personal information coherently. I was in and out from the first contact with the associate to having the shot in less than 15 minutes. My second Pfizer shot in three weeks!

60. Awesome! One and Done!

If I had a choice I would have chosen J&J just for that reason. But I just had my 2nd Moderna yesterday and so I share your excitement of being fully vaccinated at long last.

71. Hooray! And I will join in the vaccine happy dance

I got my arm poked today, also! Pfizer #1 in a very busy, very smooth operation at my local health department. I'd been watching their online site for registration to open up to my group and hit the jackpot last week, even picking out my appointment time online from what appeared to be very few openings.

My good wishes to all still waiting to secure an appointment. I am the first in my immediate family to get poked, and it happened much sooner than I thought. I am so grateful.

72. My husband and I got J&J vaccines today

We were scheduled. I am having some chills but my husband isn't feeling any ill effects. I didn't realize how emotional I would be until a woman, who was waiting for her 15 minute watch time to be up, cheered us as we left. It's been exactly one year and two days since I've seen my mom. I cannot wait to hug her again. Congratulations to you. ❤️

73. I'm so glad to see you here.

I donít know anyone else who has gotten the J&J. I hope your chills subside and thatís the extent of your side effects. I have a little bump and some discomfort in my arm but thatís it so far....and it was only 3 hours ago so thereís THAT. Keep us posted, will you?

96. I had a rough night

Fever, chills and body aches. My temperature was up to 103 before I took Tylenol. It's down to 100 this morning. My husband is still good without as much as pain at the injection site.

78. Hey, just realized, one shot. You're vaccinated. Except to remember

it'll need a couple of weeks to develop full effect.

Congrats!

I will still socially distance and wear my mask for the foreseeable future. Masks work! I havenít had so much as a sniffle in a year and a half. Thereís no reason not to mask up.

And you're ahead of me since I don't get shot #2 till the end of the month. I think that every person vaccinated is cause for celebration, just one step closer to defeating this terrible virus! Thank you for doing your part!

98. I have a sore arm this morning but nothing worse

than a flu shot. I had some chills before bed last night but I went to bed bundled up and slept pretty well. Today I feel great with nothing but a slightly sore arm. I hope thatís all that will happen.

I had my second Pfiser on March 3, so on the 17th, I'm relatively safe for now! My husband is 5 days behind me.
