2. Good idea. They'll probably be too young to know what I'm talking about though. n/t.

3. I know, right?

The very nice young man who gave me my shot looked like he was about 18 years old.

4. These kids are alright.

I wish we were leaving them a better world. This upcoming generation strikes me, overall, as wonderful.

9. I've had both my shots and neither of the young men who administered them

looked to be older than 21. Very skilled, however. I hardly felt a thing.

8. Same here. 2nd shot this morning.

Not looking forward to the side effects, but it beats going to the hospital or being dead.

10. I had my 2nd shot Wednesday. Side effects have come and gone.

My shoulder was sore the first evening, but that went away the next morning. I felt slightly feverish on Thursday and very lethargic. Yesterday I just felt tired. Today I feel great.

I drank lots of fluids, took aspirin and rested. The feeling of relief far outweighs any discomfort I felt.

15. 14 hours in, I'm feeling fewer side effects than I did with #1.

#1 I was extremely fatigued, and had some pretty profound headaches.

#2, I feel just a little light headed, a little bit fatigued but nothing like #1 - where I slept 18 hours out of 24 - and mild headache, compared to the fairly strong headache of #1.

For both, the pain at the injection site is about the same.

I'm doing better than I expected. How about you?

16. 14 hours in as well. So far, so good.

#1, Sore arm, that is all

#2, A little bit light headed for a few hours. Sore arm about the same as first injection.

Yes I am doing much better than expected, not sick at all.

I guess we can see how we do over night and tomorrow!

11. 7 days away for me...

1st shot had no side effects, hoping for more of the same. Regardless, I'm getting it done.

Congrats!

14. Definitely is a sense of relief when you finally receive that 2nd shot.

Got mine 2 weeks ago. Beside knowing you're somewhat protected now, getting the shot is just one more thing I can mark off my "To Do" list. Liberating.
