Excellent! Holding thumbs for ya! We got our second shots two weeks ago today, so feeling a huge sense of relief that, at the very least, we shouldn’t die or end up in the ICU. So there is that.

Thanks Jumping Jason!  We are really looking forward to getting the shot or shots. Our long weekend trip  to Ocean City MD was booked months ago for the 4'th July Weekend really looking forward to that. Also just renewed  our USA passports that had expired a year ago.

its been a tough year,¬†so many¬†shops and businesses closed down. But now there is some light at the end of the tunnel.ūüėÄ

Congrats guys. We are lower priority so still waiting for vax, but gratifying to see how this administration really pushed to go full steam ahead with the rollout. And grateful to know we should be vaccinated before our early summer trip, which we had postponed from last summer.

Finally got an appointment for Wednesday March 31 for the Covid vaccine. We have been registering on state and local websites and even some hospitals with only the initial reply that they had us in the system. The websites of supermarkets  and big pharmacies never appear to have a vaccine  or any availability in miles. So today we did something different.

Walked around Manhattan for some exercise and did a few walk ins to the pharmacies.

Ist Pharmacy: They had no availability today, but suggest I try their website  around midday as that's when they refresh their web page and they get their inventory. The other suggestion was to arrive at the Pharmacy at 5:15pm each day to see if they have any leftover vaccine from people that were no shows for their appointment .

2nd Pharmacy was totally unhelpful all I got was No.

3rd Supermarket Pharmacy: Got an appointment set for¬† Wednesday afternoon for the Moderna vaccine.¬† Viola! What reliefūüėÄūüėĄ

 

So this proves that waiting around to get an appointment though the internet is extremely annoying and time wasting. For anyone out there trying to get an appointment get in your car and go talk to the a couple of pharmacists directly .

 

What a successful day¬†ūü§™!

Good luck Oscar. Our county has been pretty good getting people appointments at the county and state sites. The hospitals and pharmacies are luck of the draw, some people have been very successful and others not so much. Walgreens opens up every 5 days it seems for the next 5 days. If you catch the morning they open there is a few hours before they are all booked up again.

1st dose of Moderna last Wednesday and booked for 2nd shot on April 21st. Both with Walgreens and super easy to book. That being said it took a week to find an open slot but the actual booking process on line was easy.

Had our first dose of  the Moderna vaccine yesterday.  If we waited two days we could have got the Pfizer vaccine.  So after 6 hours of getting the Moderna shot. I  had some popping in my ears like when you are about to get  the flu, followed by Tinnitus in my left ear. My wife just had a sore arm.

I have narrow ear canals from all the swimming and surfing as a youngster. But on day 2 I'm feeling perfect .  2nd shot  scheduled for April 28.

In the news last night was the story on the Johnson $ Johnson Vaccine  they had to destroy 15 million doses as they were mixed incorrectly. The whole batch was destroyed and production has been delayed at the plant near Baltimore.

This coming Monday marks my 2nd week after my 2nd Pfizer shot... all those delayed plans from last year are looking more likely ! In fact we have rebooked most of them. Here’s hoping summer will be fun. And that the vax corridors with Europe actually happen.

After being fully vaccinated and waiting the required 14 days, We went shopping. After over a year of being confined to our residence, it felt as if we had been released from prison. Also went to the Dentist yesterday!

New York has some new guidelines regarding wearing a mask effective Wednesday.

Younger kid (in 12-15 age group) got first Pfizer shot last week. It’s nice feeling everything is getting back to normal and now especially with the younger teens (most are vaxing where we are) will be able to hang out in summer. Concerts all seem to be on too! Have a few ones in summer that were rescheduled from last year.
