We received dose #1 (Pfizer) yesterday. The injection site is really sore but other than that everything is fine. We waited at the VA until the end of the day and they had enough left over to take care of us.

My wife had very difficult one day and a half after injection but normal when she gets flu. Paracetamol, rest and lots of fluids, mainly red wine.

Wait times at any VA can be lengthy. I used to take a neighbor for his appointments in Louisville, KY, back in the 1980's. It seemed like an all day deal, but it probably was not. I remember the huge framed image of Ronald Reagan in the lobby. A new facility is being constructed in Louisville, the last I heard. There is not enough room at the one I was in.

The soreness in my upper-right arm is gone. It was quite sore yesterday morning when I got up, but eased as the day passed.

For me the second Pfizer shot definitely hit harder. I got the shot in the early afternoon and symptoms started kicking in that evening. I felt crappy the next day with mostly muscle aches and chills. Symptoms started subsiding that night, and I woke up the following day feeling fine.

I now have a (semi-)vaccinated family unit (N=4; with n=6 shots so far).
Because Phase 1C has just opened on 3/15 in our county and we were able to get the appointments - my wife and son got the first shot (Pfizer). They both felt fine after.

One of the super powers that we have developed (involuntarily) is the ability to wait extremely long periods of time in a line without going bananas.

Please be sure to donate your DNA to science so we can figure out how you do it.

Mods (and presumably Admins) can edit the poll. Somebody has done so. The April vote is gone, and the number of March votes has increased from 7 to 8.

Whether that somebody was the time traveler, or another person who learned the identity of the time traveler and made contact, I do not know. I only know that the somebody was not me.

A time traveler would simply hop back in time again to fix the problem that exposed his existence in the first place.

So instead of a time traveler I propose it was a forum member's drunk cat playing on the keyboard.
