Her being 102, I'm glad it was a mild case and she's recovered! This is the first case I have heard of where a fully-vaccinated person had COVID-19 with symptoms.

People living in nursing homes getting it is never good news. I hope everyone else living there had been vaccinated too.

Which vaccine was it?

All of the nursing home has been vaccinated, I'm not sure about the staff but I think so.

I do not know which vaccine she got, I forgot to ask my aunt. I can ask her tomorrow if she knows/remembers. I live in Denmark and have not been able to visit my family in Stockholm since August 2020.

My aunt got 1st shot of Moderna and 2nd shot on April 16th. She will turn 80 on May 25th, imagine turning 80 with your mother still alive.


Edit: Don’t Be Surprised When Vaccinated People Get Infected

Quote:
Since mid-December, when the rollout of the newly authorized vaccines began, nearly 40 million Americans have received the jabs they need for full immunization. A vanishingly small percentage of those people have gone on to test positive for the coronavirus. The post-shot sicknesses documented so far seem to be mostly mild, reaffirming the idea that inoculations are powerful weapons against serious disease, hospitalization, and death. This smattering of cases is a hazy portent of our future: Coronavirus infections will continue to occur, even as the masses join the ranks of the inoculated. The goal of vaccination isn’t eradication, but a détente in which humans and viruses coexist, with the risk of disease at a tolerable low.

Two answers (please don't take offense, just an attempt at light humor):
1. ...imagine turning 80 with your mother-in-law still alive.
2, We have to ask Charles that question.

I imagine that's much more common. In fact your mother-in-law could be younger than you are.

So that's why I'm not finding as many factors as you.
I'm not using my arm.
Sheesh.

Soreness, especially around the injection site, is common. The RN who gave me my first jab said to use the arm, which I did, "to tolerance." It worked out the stiffness and relieved the soreness. I like to think that exercise helps "flush the crud out."

I got both doses (Pfizer) last month. Here's how it went for those who're interested:

March 3 - got dose 1 in the afternoon. Ran a few miles in the evening and felt a bit more tired than usual, but had no other symptoms
March 4 - had a really sore arm and fatigue, but did not have fever or any other symptoms
March 5 - felt normal again aside from that sore arm, which I could barely move. The injection site appears to be slightly red and swollen.
March 8 - arm soreness finally goes away

March 20 - ran 1200m in 3:42.9 (pre-second dose baseline fitness test)

March 23 - got dose 2 in the afternoon in the same arm. Ran in the evening and felt a bit tired, but had no other symptoms (this was similar to March 3).
March 24 - got hit hard by the vaccine's side effects. Endured fever, chills, headache, fatigue, and loss of appetite throughout the entire day. Going from the couch to the bathroom felt like climbing a mountain.
March 25 - symptoms were mostly but not completely gone. Weirdly enough, my arm wasn't as sore as it was two days after the first dose. Went on a 20 minute run and felt similar to the evenings of March 23 and March 3.
March 26 - no noticeable symptoms aside from a slightly sore arm
March 27 - no arm soreness or any other noticeable symptoms. Ran 1200m but felt very tired right from the beginning. Was expecting a horrendously slow time but finished in 3:44.6, which was similar to my 3:42.9 time on March 20.

April 3 - Fitness has fully recovered. Ran 1500 meters in a personal best time of 4:40.52 (slightly faster than 5:01 min / mile pace), but got thrashed by almost everyone else: https://www.tfrrs.org/results/67606/...ance_Carnival/


10/10, would recommend again.

We are scheduled to get our second dose on Wednesday.

The weather is scheduled for rain that day. We ride a motorcycle and we don't want to get wet and cold. (The hospital is 100 miles away, so 200 miles round trip.)

Should we get the second dose a day early or a day late?

The UK is delaying the second dose in order to get more people with the first dose. So I'd guess that it doesn't matter much if you leave it till next week, or next month.
