Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I'll recommend your method, Jeff!

My guess is it wouldn't work with a doctor's office or clinic or large drugstore. If he can find a small drugstore that gives the shots, as I did, he might have better luck.

Feels kind of weird being half-vaccinated.

I know. Are we sort of half immune now? That is, we could still get it but are less likely to, or it would be a milder case?

Ya got me.

I was told to call a few days before April 28 to make an appointment for my second shot. I think I'm going to call next week to see if they'll make me an appointment that far ahead. I'm concerned about what might happen after April 19, when everyone becomes eligible for an appointment.

When I went in for my first shot Wednesday, they automatically set me up for the second one. But what was weird was they scheduled it for May 5. I thought the shots were two weeks apart. Or is it at least two weeks apart?

I had no ill effects whatsoever. Even the shot didn't hurt. Just now I rubbed my shoulder and noticed it's very slightly painful. But all I have to do is not rub my shoulder!  :laugh:

Here's hoping the second one is this easy.

Oh, no. Moderna is four weeks apart, and Pfizer (the one I got) is three weeks apart.

When my dad had his first shot, he was given an appointment for the second shot. He had his in his primary doctor's office, and didn't you have yours at a clinic? I got mine at a pharmacy. Maybe that makes the difference.

Yes, I got mine at my usual clinic. So if you go to a pharmacy and it's time for the second shot do you have to desperately look around for a place to get it?

When I showed up for my first shot at the pharmacy, they gave me an appointment for the second shot.

No, you go back to the same pharmacy. That's where they have the record of your first shot.

I was told to call a few days ahead of the 28th to make an appointment. I was surprised to get an e-mail yesterday that said the pharmacy would remind me a few days ahead of the date, probably to call for an appointment. I may try calling some time this week anyway to see what happens.

When I got #1, I asked about being given an appointment for the second dose. That's when I was told to call.
