    Got my Moderna vaccine yesterday.

    Being part of the 1A group I was able to get my vaccine and wanted to share my experience since many are concerned. Although technically retired. I will be working for the health department very soon to do vaccines. The roll out has been too slow.

    Was injected with 0.5 ml in left deltoid and didn't even feel the injection. Then waited 15 minutes and without a reaction left. I have no symptoms as of yet. Last night my arm was sore with movement. Same for today. I was hoping to actually get some sub clinical symptoms which would let me know its working.

    I will update any changes.

    My second shot it scheduled for Feb 10th when at that point I should have about 50% immunity. A couple weeks after the 2nd shot your immunity should range up to 90-95%

    If we get those shots out to most of the population we should get back to some normalcy and a full Stadium.

    I contracted COVID in mid-December

    I went to the doctor on Wednesday, Dec. 16, for a sinus infection and was given antibiotics and a steroid. Three days later, my taste started being a little "funky." I went back to the doctor on Monday because I was actually feeling worse (this never happens when I have a sinus infection, as antibiotics begin turning it around almost immediately) and was tested for COVID. I did the quick test and also the PCR test. The quick test was positive, and the PCR test confirmed the initial results. I truly believe I contracted the virus at my initial doctor's visit.

    I scheduled an online visit with America's Frontline doctors and was prescribed ivermectin, an anti-viral, anti-parasite drug that has shown tremendous progress in treating the disease. Before I took the first dose of the drug on Thursday, December 24, at 4 p.m., I was couch-ridden, had trouble sleeping, had no energy, my appetite was gone and my sense of taste and smell were gone, too. I was also developing a cough. Within two hours of taking the drug, my sense of taste and smell started coming back and I began getting my appetite back. By Sunday, December 27, I was back working out (I lift weights and ride an exercise bike) although I was still a little tired. By the following Wednesday, I was able to do my complete weight workout as usual.

    I have also talked with people who have taken hydroxychloroquine with similar, near-immediate turnarounds. I truly believe that this virus can be beaten with these drugs, as long as they are given early enough in the viral load. I also took zinc and Vitamins D and C with ivermectin. I also believe that since I was already on an antibiotic kept me from developing a lung infection or pneumonia with the COVID.

    I'm 62 and in decent shape, but since I am older my risk from this disease is greater than someone a lot younger.

    Same here.

    Pretty much a 99+% survival rate.

    No long-term study of vax, causes heart lining issues in some, who knows what else long-term.

    Good to hear the effects were negligible. Glad you're doing well. Looking forward to the vaccine being available to the regular joes like myself.

    Day 3 arm fine no symptoms, 2 friends who had Covid got the vaccine and had some Covid symptoms but nothing like the real Thing. Both in 40s were sick as dogs when initially sick. In south Jersey we are opening two big additional sites this week. Its going to start to move exponential. Contact you county health department(online) for sign ups. At least that is how we do it here.

    Had training at a swab site today. Steady lines, scared people. Be safe.

    Arm soreness when away two days ago. Never got the sub clinical symptoms. Looking forward to second shot. Data shows the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are “essentially 100 percent effective against serious disease, Means 90-95% effective for no disease and 5-10% could get covid, but not get sick enough to be hospitalized or vented with lung damage. Talk about a home run.

    I'm looking forward to getting the vaccine when it becomes available in Hawaii to non-medical staff...

    I was just hired per diem (coming out of retirement for a bit) by the local health department to help in the vaccination roll out. NJ is starting to branch out into hubs that spread out the demand. I think nationwide its going to get exponentially better. I believe the mRNA vaccines are truly science at it best. You should have an opportunity to get vaccinated very soon. Key is to stay safe until then. Getting the shot is like Christmas x100.
