Wife has been holding out for J & J vaccine, because she is very reactive to foreign stuff. She wanted a one-shot. She heard California is giving all their J & J vaccine to field workers and the homeless, for logistic reasons so she gave up. She timed it perfectly! Literally 10 minutes later I had a Pfizer vaccine appointment for her tomorrow. She also only wanted to go to two of the county's drive-up sites, but they were all full. Got her an appointment at one of our health care group's suburban sites, which turns out to be a drive-up! We had no idea is was not walk-in until we already made the appointment and received the detailed instructions.

I get my second Moderna shot on Sunday, after being rescheduled twice. They keep on running out. I'll be part of the involuntary five week cohort, which is fine with me. Certainly not going anywhere until about 7 weeks from now, after my wife has good immunity.

Wife's Pfizer jab 1 went off without a hitch, or even a very long line. We remained in our car. Just verified her identity at the first station. Didn't even have to show her driver license or insurance card. Then we were waved into the immunization lines. Answered a few questions about allergies and such, and then a nurse injected her right through the open window. Directed into some parking spaces where we waited 15 minutes, and then back on the highway home. Very efficient.

That was five hours ago, and so far she feels fine.

It's the second jab that sometimes causes a reaction. Skinny athletic women were hardest hit in my circle of friends.

Congrats on getting you wife Pfizered, that has got to be a load off of your mind. We had no reaction to the Pfizer at all, and will be getting our second round early next week. The Moderna is more reactive, and it is reasonable to get the Pfizer in people with hyperactive immune systems. This may work fine if you are in the group of people who can maintain strong distancing for all family members until immunized.

We are sure happy to be able to soon resume our grand-parenting! You can only do so much tickling and teasing with a virtual connection and a cooperative parent's Cat's paw!

I got a Moderna vaccine back at the end of January. Slots were hard to come by, and when you did get one they would not tell you which vaccine they had for it. You got what they had. When it came time for my second vaccine, the county ran out of Moderna and they had to shut down the super site for a while. They are playing catchup now. But there does seem to be plenty of Pfizer available, if you know when to look online and act quickly. I feel sorry for all the elderly not in elder care facilities, who are not computer savvy. Our neighbor was in that state, and we got her Pfizer slots.
