  • I'll let you know when they get to the VA. I heard that's one of the first places it will go. Probably to staff first, but hopefully not everyone at the same time just in case there are adverse reactions to be on the safe side. We wouldn't want a statistically significant portion of the medical professionals to have a bad time of it at once.

      I don't remember if I told you when the staff at the VA first started getting vaccines, but they were giving the vaccine to patients over 75 at the VA today 1/13.
  • i will wait and see. I am not getting one though. It went through real fast. It is unproven.

  • It depends on how at risk you are. Most of us will probably not be offered a vaccine until around May, or later, depending.

  • I hope Pfizer can keep their word. I like the fact that Pres. Joe Biden said he will distribute 100,000 covid vaccines weekly to major chain pharmacies. Hoping he keeps his word.

  • Mine is scheduled for Feb 24th, but it will not be given at the VA. It will be given at the United way covid vaccine clinic. Not sure which vaccine, but probably Pfizer.

      Will do, hun. I've always been a pro vaxer. Its not just about the individual. Its about the greater good for all. And I'll still wear my mask, even though I won't need it once I have antibodies, even though it makes it difficult for me to breathe. At that point its about setting an example and appeasing the public. But if I can't breathe its coming off till I catch it back! I need to use my inhaler before I have to wear it, and move slower. I'll let you know how bad it hurts and any side effects I might have and what worked best for me in case it might help others.

      I could have scheduled it for today, but I had to arrange transportation. My friend researched it and said its just for vets. I responded "for now" . The appointment process was fully automated via text and went without a hitch! I was impressed!

      My case manager said she'd schedule the car around my appointment. When I told her where it was she said she knew she took someone today. I wish I'd thought to ask if it was a drive thru procedure like they did with the testing.

      Got my first vaccine today. My appointment was at 10, I got there a little early and was vaccinated and able to leave by 10:08, and that includes the 15min wait after! It wasn't drive thru like some, but was very efficient! And while it was at the United Way, I recognized a few workers from the VA working there. I don't know if they were all from the VA or not. But they did a great job!
  • Pfizer was approved by the FDA to distribute vaccines if they were stored in freezers at minus 100 or so, which few doctors and pharmacies have available. But based on new data as of 2/19/21 they are now asking for approval to allow storage at more normal freezer temperatures, which would allow it to be more readily available..
