Anyone personally know anyone who has received the Covid

vaccine that is not a health care worker? Just trying to gauge when it may become available to the rest of us.

Also interested to hear what, if any side effects your acquaintances had upon getting the vaccine. National Enquiring minds want to know.

The rest of us probably won't receive the vaccine until late Spring or early Summer.

A limited supply was available in the area where I live this week but it was gone in a few days. It was supposed to go to the elderly but I know several who got the vaccine. None have had any side effects. If it becomes available again I plan to “get in line”.

In Ohio first responders did not include police. To me that is total bull

My Son-In-Law is with the Sheriff Dept in Lexington county, and received the first of his two doses last week.

He's 35, and did not have any side effects from the first dose.

Personally, I think the focus should be on people over the age of 70.

I've also heard from a couple people in the medical profession. Their advice is to receive the injections in a hospital or doctor's office to guard against immediate reactions.

I don't want my grandchildren ever getting it, and my opinion would be against any kids under 15

The focus certainly is on people over the age of even 60, if they are regularly involved with a doctor. If they are not, they need to get in contact with their regular doctor and discuss their options. Tracking people down that need the shot is a nightmare, from what I've been told. Even tracking people down for their follow up has been really tough. And it's not time well spent when there are people in line and eager to receive their vaccine. With a roll out this large, people will have to be responsible for a lot more than they are accustomed too, from what I've heard.

process for CVS. He told me that so far, they were ahead of schedule and that in the state of SC we (the general public) may have access as soon as February 15th. He said it's a logistical nightmare trying to keep track of the millions of shots given and the follow up process for the second shot, but that the distribution itself is rolling along nicely. He told me the state's governors in the south east have been heavily involved and pushed hard to help their citizens. His personal take was that for this to really happen any quicker, the National Guard would have to be involved in setting up stations and giving shots. But again, the follow up for the second shot would be a logistical nightmare. Now the real fear is catching the virus while waiting in a long line to get the vaccine. I know a handful of people who've had the shot. My mom is in a nursing home and received hers on Tuesday with no ill effects. She did have the virus last April, so I'm not sure what, if any, effect that had. Anyway, that's all I got for ya, just a bunch of second hand information.

Monday. I’m 70 and waited in those daytona lines you probably saw on tv. I had some foot cramping but that was probably due more to dehydration. Other than that, I felt fine.

in their mid-30s in healthcare - none had any adverse reactions except a sore arm at the injection site for a day or two. Nothing different than typically felt for most vaccines like a flu shot.

I'm signed up - am waiting to hear when my appointment date/time is.

Check your state. Most have set up phases as to what group is eligible to get the vaccine and when.

They have given about 500 out in Knox County for that age group. He has not reported any problems with the first shot.

My sister was told before Christmas she would have one by now....but no luck yet.

We are both over 65. We live in Georgia. Our local Department of Health has a website that went live this week to make appointments but I understand that they are already into March. A doctor friend recommended taking Tylenol the day of the vaccine and putting an ice pack on the injection site for a while after injection.

In SC You are in Group 1b. The Governor has just established a deadline for group 1A to be inoculated later this month. Watch your local news and call your local hospital, and maybe your local health dept. Also, don't forget your Vit D and Zinc. Hope you are able to stay healthy. I have had no ill effects from my first vaccination at the beginning of this week.

and I am a resident in assisted living facility in SC. I didn't have any side effects. I can tell you several facilities in SC have received the vaccine so maybe the South Carolina is moving faster than New York?

I'm a participant in the Moderna Clinical Trial. Participants were never told if they received the Placebo or the Vaccine until this week. Moderna decided to bring all participants in to let them know if they received the Placebo or the Vaccine. If you received the Placebo you could elect to get the Vaccine.
I received the first injection the last of August last year, then the second injection 28 days later. After the second injection I had a low grade fever (99.9), sore arm at the injection site and a headache which lasted less than 24 hours. From research I figured I had received the real thing and this past Tuesday I found out I did receive the Vaccine. They then issued a card verifying that I had been vaccinated.

2 doses of Pfizer now without any issues. In Arkansas we are in 1A, which means medical and now have added first responders. So my Brother in law a policeman got his first yesterday, no issues. By far of all the doctors/nurses etc that have gotten it little to no symptoms. They are projecting 1B here at beginning of Feb which will include teachers and those over 65 I think

My understanding is the second dose has a small window to take, for full effectiveness.

Can't verify if true, but was told they give you a three day window, and you need to follow up.

It’s 21 days, you can come up to 3 days early, ideally not afterwards.

But they still recommend getting it if missed the window. I still think you’d get close to 90% but not sure if there are exact numbers or not

speed things up causing concerns that if too many 1st doses are given that the second dose might not be available to give the 2nd within the window- that is a guarantee I want before I get my 1st one

Just found out I received my second vaccine shot on Sept. 25 as a volunteer in the Moderna trial.

The only side effect was a very minor sore arm with first shot, not even that with the second.

Unless you're skeeered of needles, go get it asap.
