  1. 2 days post Moderna, shot #2 for my relative. Fever broke in the night but they woke with their body feeling sore and said their injection site is now swollen, warm, and itchy. They also felt stiff. No rash. They had a phone appointment with their PCP and were directed to phone daily for a check-in, to use hot compresses on the arm, and to take 600mg of ibuprofen.
  2. Two relatives of mine got their 2nd Moderna shots in the last week. One only had fatigue -- funny (ironic) to me because I would have expected this relative to have more post-vaccine reactions because they are generally pretty sensitive to medications. The other one got their shot midday yesterday and by the evening had chills, muscle aches, and "the worst headache I've ever had." Today, that relative says they feel like they've been hit by a truck and still have a low grade fever (99.7 -- it went up to 102.5 last night). It's been so interesting to see our different reactions...
  3. Quoting myself- now at 28.5 hours and feeling fine. Fever and headache gone. Fatigue has lessened. Feeling certain that after a good night’s sleep I’ll be fine tomorrow.
  4. Best poetry nights ever! 🤣
  5. I’m about 22-23 hours post 2nd dose of Pfizer. Mild sore arm that’s fading. However, I just started a low grade fever (100.5°F) after coming home from a short trip of store errands. I might have a bit of a mild headache, too. Decided to plop myself on the couch for the rest of today.

  11. I have two relatives who received Moderna from Kaiser.
  12. I've only had my first dose so far at a mass vaccination hub for my county (same one I'll be returning to next week.) At check in, they scanned my QR code, asked for my photo ID, my proof of eligibility for the Tier I'm in, and my medical card. Then she told me to keep it all out for the nurse. When my turn came to see the nurse, she said, "I don't need all that. Just the QR code." 🙄 For observation, the nurse put a 15 minute sticker on me and directed me where to sit. The observation area had spaced chairs and nurses were roaming, checking stickers and asking how people felt. When time w
  13. I got my 1st Pfizer dose last Friday. No reactions. My sore arm lasted about 24 hours, which I thought was weirdly good. I did not seek out a Pfizer vax- for my state, my profession moved from 1c to 1b. When that happened, I was trying to get on every list because I work and live in different counties. I started with my state’s site and literally got the golden ticket. When I signed up, it said there were 55 opening for every hour. I picked my day and hour. I confused what happened with a glitchy site. So I thought my date was reset and chose a second time. I actually chose my second dos
  14. I’m now at 24 hours after my 1st Pfizer shot. Other than a typical sore arm this morning and a good, deep sleep, I’ve been fine. Soreness in my arm has faded.
  15. Sorry, but the incorrect spelling of SEUSS is driving me nuts. Some seem to insist it’s SUESS which makes me think people are saying he’s SUS, ala the video game Among Us.
  16. How was Seuss being "cancelled" before this announcement?
  17. My battling stage 3 breast cancer for a year now mom got her first Moderna shot today! 🥳

  20. Yes, they decided this after having a review board look at the titles: https://www.seussville.com/statement-from-dr-seuss-enterprises/ (Bolding is mine.)
  21. Is it this one? https://www.amazon.com/Runaway-Nickel-Frances-Salomon-Murphy/dp/B000RHLHQC If not, maybe this will help: https://www.nypl.org/blog/2017/11/22/finding-book-forgotten-title?page=3
  22. I can only vouch for this particular site. As of 2 weeks ago, this is what they wrote: (Bolding is theirs.) Based on that, if I had a preference, I'd wait to see my doctor's office or talk to a pharmacy.
