A friend had his and mentioned doing some serious hydrating starting two days prior and didn't seem to have any real side effects, his wife didn't and suffered some.

Now that you all have your vaccinations, how has your life improved? You still wearing masks? You still social distancing? Do you have any concerns about getting Covid?

Asking because no one seems to have the answers especially our government and "the experts" pushing the vaccines on every human on the planet.
LAPD reports all sworn/civillian positive cases a day
Was 30+ a day in January before vaccinations
Was 2 yesterday
Herd immunity solely?
Id wager not when we still are booking about the same into jails daily and that was largest generator of new cases .
None of the 17 Bomb Techs and 8 Hazmat Cops ever contracted the virus, some had family members that were positive and those guys still stayed negative.

First hand info.
Not arguing because that is not what this thread is for.

LA County is at .9% positive rate, Phoenix was 5% reported rate last weekend on news I viewed.

J&J might get up and running as early as next week fwiw.

Improved, yes. My middle daughter is playing club and varsity soccer simultaneously and has 2 colleges look at her as a junior. We are also traveling to Maui this summer with our “passports”. Wife is able to see patients in person which means more income.
Masks yes. Most places still require them and it is the polite thing to do when in another person’s business, home or event. No need to be an a-hole on “principle”.
Social distancing, no but again, most places limit access or forced spacing.
Concerns about getting COVID now, none at all.

Got my second Maderna Monday morning. I was fine all day but about 10:30 at night I started getting crazy chills. By morning I was still shivering and shaking to the point I was physically sore (still am) from the involuntary muscle contractions over and over. Never had a headache or any of the other issues, just severe chills. Still wrestling with it today. I did go to work today because of a few things I really needed to do. Yesterday it was a challenge to even stand to pee.

Lots of fun, I recommend everyone takes a turn on this ride.

How concerned were you prior? I'm fairly young, fairly healthy, and have essentially zero concern for myself with it. Was concerned for my parents, but they went and got poked...

My wife received her first and probably only shot today. She received the Pfizer shot. Several minutes later, ready to leave she passed out, collapsed. Out cold on the floor. Didn’t come to for 2 minutes. Rushed to the ER. Battery of tests. Nothing. Doc says it’s happened and there’s no answer.
I was in mid flight coming home from a biz trip. She texted that she was in the ER once she started getting back to normal but still didn’t know what to expect. That last hour of that flight was long...

I have no real good reason to get it. I’m younger and I’m in great health. We also most likely had it in March of 2020. She had it much worse than I. Since then we’ve been exposed to a few others and have been totally fine.

Very. I am 56 with asthma from being a kid during stage 3 smog alerts. Lost 2 acquaintances and a coworker to COVID. None had underlying conditions and the coworker was a triathlete. For some it’s no worse than the flu. Not a gamble I’m willing to take.

Had dose 1 of moderna monday.

Aside from a sore shoulder on day 2 and 3 nothing really to report. I was tires as all get out Wednesday but i attribute that to a terrible nights sleep due to bad allergies.

Could be Vasovagal syncope. This has happened to me in the past. Hospital, Cardiologists and Neuro doctors all did battery of tests on me and found absolutely nothing wrong with me. Neuro dr said it just happens in some people. Anyway, when I got my 1st Pfizer shot, I started to get the initial feeling I had when I had my Vasovagal Syncope episode. While waiting in the 15 min hold area, EMS checked me out and said my BP and heart rate were elevated but I was otherwise ok. Took a few hours for the symptoms to subside.

Has to be herd immunity as the vaccine does not prevent you from catching it

30 % drop in 30 days in a city of 4 million thar just happens in sync with first batch of vaccinations?

Coincidence?

I got my 2nd Maderna yesterday and woke up with a fever of 99.9 and sore. Been up and down all day. Wasn’t gonna get the shot but we help take care of a 90 yo and her Dr recommended it. Hopefully better by the morning.

Second shot of Pfizer at 11:15 this morning.

32, healthy, go to the gym almost everyday.

I had about 125 oz of water on Monday and also yesterday. I usually weigh 204-205... I weighed 208.5 this morning after my regular morning weight loss at the toilet. Apparently I live my life dehydrated?

Had my first jab of the Moderna vax on Saturday at noon. Arm pain up to shoulders by midnight, and spent Sunday on the couch with flu-like symptoms taking Tylenol and drinking Pedialyte to stay hydrated.

Monday back to work and drinking Miller Lite.

Ok, just over 24 hours after the second Pfizer.

Wife got a little tired around 9ish last night and went to bed early around 10. I felt fine. Both had a little sore shoulder.

This morning we were all good, just sore shoulders. Over the last few hours, the wife is starting to complain that her body is kind of sore. I felt somewhat the same but thought it was post deadlifting pain.

She asked if I felt it too. I told her yeah... but I like it. She called me a fucking weirdo and went back to working 😁

We know a couple, similar age, also got Pfizer. They didn't know the hydration tip. They said the day after was no fever but headaches, body aches, and tired all day. The next day... poof, like it never happened.

Another buddy similar age got J&J... fever, aches, tired. He told me I really needed to slam a bunch of water.

Moral of the story... my non medical, small sample size opinion = Hydrate thoroughly before.

I got my first shot this morning. Morderna.

The chick slammed it into my left arm!!! Yeah, it hurt, but it was far from unbearable pain. :rolleyes:

As I was sitting there chillin, I kept moving my arm around. After about 15min, the pain was already fading. It's been 5 hours ago now? No pain. No reaction.

We shall see what the next shot brings...


P.S. I had the covid back in December. I got a 3 day cold out of that deal. I'm 63.

My local driver took the second shot, ( I do not know which one yet ) and died pretty much instantly. He was rushed to the ER, his lungs were filling with fluid and the doctors could not control it. Fifth person I have heard of dying within 24 hours of a shot. RIP.
