    I think that is just a minimum requirement, when I went to have it done they just scheduled for me a month after.

    Also I'm in a low priority group and everyone needs to come back for the 2nd shot, they probably did not have an appointment sooner

    I was on a therapist FB page and a bunch were saying they weren't going to get one because they wanted the people who 'really needed them' to get them first. And I know some folks who won't get them because they feel they are unnecessary.

    The second shot for the Pfizer shot is 3 weeks later. The second shot for the Moderna is 4 weeks later. I don't know how much beyond the 3 and 4 weeks is acceptible.

    My husband and I got our second Moderna jabs on Saturday. We felt ok for the first several hours and then he got hit hard. He was so fatigued that he could not stand or walk. On Sunday he fell down twice trying, stubborn. No broken bones or injuries. I helped him off the floor the first time and had to call a friend to help the second time. Today he is back to normal. I am still tired, probably partially from the stress of yesterday.

    Glad to be done with it and looking forward to getting out more!

    Our local health department says 6 weeks additional delay after the initial 3 or 4-week wait is acceptable.

    There is absolutely no way I'm going to let them stick me with a needle and implant a Bill Gates designed tracking device. No, f-ing way.

    But, yeah, I'm getting the COVID vaccine as soon as I can. Can't wait.

    I've seen that attitude before; it doesn't take into account many doses are wasted because they expire without people who qualify there to get a dose. That's why my wife got a dose of Moderna; the Pharmacist was about to have to throw some out (and he'd been trying to coax an old man who qualified into accepting one; I don't think he did).

    Second guessing the people who make the decisions on rollout eligibility adds indecision and chaos. Will the large number of unvaccinated eligible people in group B lead to authorities delaying opening up vaccinations to group C?

    An all too common feeling, but then there are so many lies on the internet and in the news that I can understand the confusion. Yet more Americans have died from this illness than all of WWII. My son-in-law didn't take the threat seriously until he ended up waiting for an open hospital bed. He survived that ok, but the mother of my youngest great-grandchild who survived a less disabling bout at the same time says that she doesn't want the vaccine. I certainly hope that she changes that attitude, but I have met others.

    My daughter has her second jab Friday so I went down to babysit the two great-grandkids they are raising when my son-in-law went to work early Saturday. I'm not much of a babysitter but I keep the wild ones essentially managed as she slept thru chills. My granddaughter's midnight wreck added to the challenges.

    He and Asimov are must-reads. I haven't read it since high school, so I might join you and reread it anew. Alan Dean Foster captures my imagination best, but he's mostly puns and fun: not near as many insights. I'll go months without reading and then I can't put the books down. My recent spate of shingles has wiped my ability to read or concentrate. I finally lost the dizzies, so I'm trying to read. I can gauge my rehab by doing crossword puzzles.
