I'm 79, got both Moderna shots. 1st was piece of cake, 2nd I felt lousey the next day. To those of you who say you won't get the shots--I think your excuses are just that. You are not only needlessly exposing yourself to a potential nasty disease, but more importantly, selfishly potentially exposing others. Come on and do your part! That's how we beat Polio and several lesser diseases.
Really? We beat it completely? What's this all about then?

I was vaccinated a few weeks ago, 66 and school bus driver. With my job I figured what the heck, luckily no real problem just a little arm stiffness.

Here in Idaho after Feb. 1st those 65 and older can get the shot plus I am type 2 diabetic. My Doctor called me up and set up my appointment. I get my second shot next Saturday. I also read some here were having troubles getting vaccinated.
I know there are pro's and con's and for me the bottom line is I don't want to get sick. Denny
I understand the vaccines for Covid-19 are only approved on an emergency use basis. Of course I have no compelling reasons to trust the government, so I think I'll just continue to keep my immune system working as best I can. I'm only a little past 70, and I have a lot to do yet before checking out!

Got my first one on Thurs 3/25. Ironically, my birthday. I got the Moderna Vacc so second one will be 4/22 - birthday of Glen Campbell.

Edit/Add: I do want to add that I begrudge no one who decides to not get the vaccine, In fact, I support your right not to get the vaccine. Its a matter of personal choice. Hey where have I heard that before?? My body, my choice. Tell the prog/libs/socs that next time they shriek hysterically and those who choose not to get the vaccine. LOL!!

The CDC is now saying there is strong evidence those with vaccinations don't carry the virus, thus will no longer transmit the virus. Those of you who continue to use what are essentially baseless excuses should be ashamed of yourselves for chancing transmitting covid to your children, parents, friends, and others when there is a safe alternative.
Boooo! I'm with "TTDoc", and gonna wait this one out. I've also read about some of the side effects, and just because some have gotten that shot(s), doesn't mean I should follow suit.
Afterall, when everybody gets the shot and I don't, who will be left to pass along that China virus to me and toytraindoc? Huh, who, huh? 😝
And now, even after you get those shots, "Short Stuff Fauci" still wants people to wear masks. Fool me once..........shame on me, fool me twice............
It's good to see someone who is smarter than a doctor:rolleyes:.

Something I found interesting. My neighbor is in his early 50's and has had a heart transplant. He is in a tight group of other heart recipients. They all must take up to 30 pills a day of many different drugs. They also have to adhere to a strict diet and no alcohol. He and all his pall's have been Covid vaccinated per Doctors orders. I thought they would be the ones paranoid about the side effects. Denny .

Received my second Pfizer vaccine a couple weeks ago. Injection site was a little sore next day. Day after I experienced allergy type symptoms, watery eyes and runny nose, but I usually have some spring allergy symptoms so can’t say with real certainty that it was caused by the vaccine. I’m in my late 50’s and glad I got vaccinated but everyone should make their own decision on what’s best for them. Stay safe.

I look not just at what people say about an issue, but at their credentials/credibility on that issue as well. All tolled I rolled up my sleeve and got my second Pfizer in late February.

I'm 60 y.o., no comorbidities, and got it via a use it or it gets tossed situation.

My arm hurt both times a bit, less than a tetanus shot.

I had my first Moderna shot this week.
My 75 and 78 year old mother and stepfather have had both shots.
My 91 year old father in law has had both shots.
My 78 year old father had an appointment at the VA to get his vaccine, but caught covid before he could get it. He had a rough time, but is doing ok now.

It's good to see people like you and your family who are stepping up to the plate to beat this disease.

I had both of my shots a few weeks ago. No problem with the first but the second shot put me down for the day with terrible headaches and dizzy spells. Nothing after that.

I go in Monday for an operation and had to have a Covid-19 test even though I had both of my shots. I've heard nasty things about the swab going up my nose but it was a piece of cake. I didn't feel a thing.

I have had both of my Pfizer injections and initially had zero side effects. Recently though I’ve noticed I no longer need Viagra and I’ve grown 2 inches. I am now 5 foot 11.

From some statistics, doctors kill more people than handguns do, except in Chicago. 🥺

Excellent point! Maybe for the doctors, it's like getting your neighbor to sign up for "Hughes Net" satellite service. For every arm that gets a shot or two, maybe three, the doctors get 50-cents for each needle insertion. 💀
