They schedule the weather where you live? I'm impressed! Where I live, they only try to forecast the weather, and the forecast for two days ahead is iffy.

If you can actually reschedule your shot for a day earlier, that might be the easiest solution. Kind of depressing in a way that that would be an option, though - when I got my shots, the clinic was booked solid pretty quickly for both rounds, so it was either go when I was scheduled, or wait until the next round.

I'm just thinking - what the weather will be tomorrow is probably significantly less uncertain than what it will be on Thursday. Be a shame to reschedule and get rained on anyway...

Yup. It doesn't much matter as long as you get the second within 3 months of the first.

For the avoidance of doubt: that's what the medics say and I'm just repeating it. Please don't be tempted to shoot the messenger.

A day late would be better than a day early:
https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-1...derations.html

"The second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible, but not earlier than recommended (i.e., 3 weeks [Pfizer-BioNTech] or 1 month [Moderna]). However, second doses administered within a grace period of 4 days earlier than the recommended date for the second dose are still considered valid. If it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval and a delay in vaccination is unavoidable, the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be administered up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. Currently, only limited data are available on efficacy of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines administered beyond this window."

April 3 - Ran 1500 meters in a personal best time of 4:40.52: https://www.tfrrs.org/results/67606/...ance_Carnival/

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.
I am due for my 2nd dose in six days. The 1st was Moderna. I do not see why the local hospital, where I received the 1st dose, would change. The name is shown on the CDC card I was given.

I fear a lot of the things in the quote above. This may seem silly: The first shot was in my right arm. I am going to insist the second be in my left arm. I had one day of noticeable soreness a day after the first shot. Otherwise, I felt fine. and still do.

I worked at a mass vaccination site early in Feb. We were giving out Moderna. If someone was coming in for a second dose and they had gotten Pfizer, the official word was it was ok but they had to be consulted with by the on-site Pharmacist. Either one can be the second dose for the other.

Our site's official position is that they will match. In operations, they'd acquired mostly Pfizer now (and 2 of us got Moderna x2, and 2 others from our family got Pfizer x2), but the hospital keeps some offset Moderna for 2nd shots, and some J&J for people who are allergic to some component of Pfizer (it is not alum, something else, lipids probably).

I still attend internal townhalls (though my acute interest to vaccine is now greatly diminished - all kids* are protected). I did hear that they received clearance for mix-and-match as the last resort; FDA allows for it. Their best effort is aimed at matching shot 1 and 2.

* I call them kids, though they are >25.

My actual kid is my biggest concern now. All of the adults in my immediate family have had both shots. I know outcomes for children are good but worry about currently unknown longer term effects.
