My husband and I got our first Covid vaccinations today!

My doctor's practice is a large one and they have their own immunization clinic normally. So in addition to giving shots at the individual doctor's offices, they are doing it at the clinic.

We got there, filled out the paperwork, got called in along with six other people. They had chairs lined up in the hallway and the nurse worked his way down along the line, giving each person their shots. Then he went through other instructions, handed out cards with our vaccination info and the date to come back for the second shot - that part was easy, three weeks from the first one, at the same time.

By the time he'd covered all of this, 15 minutes had passed and we all left. I really like that there is no uncertainty about when to come back - except the nurse had made a mistake and put down March 13, though he'd told us March 16! I suspect with the hundreds of shots he's given, he's probably getting a bit punch drunk.

Now not quite twelve hours later, my arm is a little sore, about the same as when I got my flu shot. I'm going to bed soon, so I hope I will sleep off any other symptoms.

1. congrats!

we are probably looking at early summer, but since we have no life and are so rural I'm not too worried.

2. I wasn't too worried about myself but my husband needs a social life

He has a set of friends he spends time with and I was not too worried about them. But then the grown nephew of one caught Covid, so that was a problem.

Since we're both over 65 and I have health issues that could be a big problem if I caught it, I figured it was time to push. It didn't take long, less than a week, after I signed up with my doctor's office to be on the list and they called last Thursday for the appointment today.

Good luck when you get your shot. I hope it is sooner than summer.
