The wife and I got our vaccine 1-16-21, second shot scheduled for 2-13-21.  Who else had gotten theirs? 

Had a sore arm and mild headache the following day, not too bad. I hear the second shot may have more of a reaction, we will see. 


I really hope live will be a little more normal for the two of us in March when we have some antibodies build up. REALLY tired of SIP.

Bill, both of us are over 70, but we have not received our vaccinations.   I’m somewhat weathered in, so the SIP requirements aren’t getting to me...  yet.  I’m hoping to get the first dose by early February.

We are only in our 50's so way down on the list. I was hoping having a "compromised immune system" due to my chemo would get us some priority but no luck. But still feeling optimistic like there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it will be here soon enough.

I remember getting both the Salk & the Sabin polio vaccines. For the sugar cubes, we travelled to a school several towns away where distribution was set up. 


I had childhood friends that had polio. Some didn’t survive and some were crippled for life.  It was a very real adversary for young folks. Don’t remember any hype like we experience with Covid daily.  The primary caution was no swimming or playing in the creek which were severe restrictions for young boys in the southern Appalachians.  


We had radio but no TV in our house at the time. We used to joke that we were so far up in the hills that the Grand Opry Show didn’t arrive until 02:30 Tuesday afternoon.

They should treat it like Polio and make a big push to get it out.  I had an aunt who had polio. My mom had me and my brother first in line to get the polio shot. Had to get a note so I did not double up with the sugar cube.

If the anti vaxxers could only meet some people in the iron lung. 


My parents are certainly next on the list. However Kaiser says don't call us, we'll call you when its your turn.


I'd like to be on some kind of list where the vaccine is about to time out and they just need am arm. I could get there in a hurry.
