I thought it was totally stupid and just gave deniers a talking point.  Know how when something is EXTREMELY unlikely to happen, we use the phrase "one in a million"?  J&J clots were even less than that.  You are 66 more times likely to get struck by lightening at some point in your life than this clotting issue.  Pausing the J&J made them just look scared.

 

Scared money don't make money.

I agree in general

 

i think right now being transparent and on top If things matters most. If instead we found out 3 months from now they decided “eh only 6 people”... could destroy faith in people with faith

 

the deniers are already anti-science and make up reasons since they can’t find actual reasons. Think it’s best we worry about everyone else and keeping their faith first. 🤷‍♂️

‘Today we did it’: Biden celebrates 200-million-doses of COVID-19 vaccine in his first 100 days

 

 On Wednesday the President announced his administration met the goal of 200 million shots in American arms one week ahead of his first 100 days in office.

 

“Today we did it,” President Biden said “The time is now to open up a new phase of this historic vaccination effort.”

 

To reach more Americans President Biden is asking all US employers to give paid time off to get vaccinated.

 

“And businesses should know they can provide it without a hit to their bottom line,” he added.

 

The president says there will be a tax credit available to offset the cost for employers with fewer than 500 employees.

 

This move tied with making those 16 and older eligible for the vaccine will give a boost to vaccination rates, according to the president.

 

There is still the uphill battle of getting hesitant Americans comfortable with the vaccine. But the White House said new polling shows confidence is growing.

Folks, we're reaching a critical point in the vaccination campaign where we're running out of people who are excited to get one. If you know of any friends or family who are 50/50 and have specific questions, please start dropping them in here. We can reply with insights/data from experts who aren't being put on the local news at 6 or given as much of a platform as Fauci.

 

Every little bit helps. I am NOT trying to go back to last March/April ever again.

It’s been a little under 5 hours now and I’m feeling incredibly tired - is that too soon to be from the vaccine?

It was about 7-8 for my 2nd Pfizer, I spent the whole next day on the couch.

Get a shot, play slots: WV casino's vaccine clinic welcomes out-of-staters

 

A vaccine clinic at a West Virginia casino is welcoming people from outside of the state to get their COVID-19 shots as demand declines among in-state residents.

 

“Grateful was what we saw in their eyes,” said Betsy Gambino, a nurse with Berkeley Medical Center who helped administer the shots Tuesday.

 

Without leaving their car, state resident or not, people can get their coronavirus vaccine in a parking garage at the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races in the state’s Eastern Panhandle. The drive-thru clinic is available to anyone age 16 and older. West Virginia residency is no longer required, according to a statement released by the casino Tuesday.

 

That was news to some state coronavirus response officials who said Wednesday they were unaware of clinics opening to out-of-state residents.

 

Held in partnership with WVU Medicine, the clinic is being held from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday over the next several weeks. The casino is about an hour’s drive from Washington, D.C, and about 75 miles west of Baltimore.

 

“We know our neighbors in surrounding states are struggling, so we’ve opened our borders to allow them to receive their vaccine,” said Donnie Grubb, Berkeley Medical Center’s trauma program manager who is overseeing the clinic. “We have the availability to do that.”

 

The clinic is advertised in different places, including a sign that can be seen from heavily traveled Interstate 81. Gambling might be a unique side trip to getting the vaccine, although the clinic’s advertisement does not openly push the facility’s slots and table games.

U.S. sees significant drop in vaccinations over past week

 

Daily coronavirus vaccinations have slowed significantly for the first time since February, a sign that demand is slipping even though every American adult is now eligible for the shots.

 

About 3 million Americans are getting vaccinated daily, an 11 percent decrease in the seven-day average of daily shots administered over the past week. The unprecedented drop is rivaled only by a brief falloff that occurred in February, when winter storms forced the closure of vaccination sites and delayed shipments nationwide.

I had a very similar experience to other posters here.  I felt like **** for about 10 hours after getting my 2nd Pfizer shot.  About 10 hours later I felt just fine.

 

They say you can take pain relievers like Tylenol or Advil after your shot but you aren’t supposed to take them before.

I'm getting my Moderna shot 2 on May 7th. For those of you who have gotten Moderna, any insight on how it was? So far from skimming this it seems to be mainly exhaustion or has there been more? I really am hoping I don't feel like vomiting...

Everyone is different - my friend said he felt like he got hit by a truck after Pfizer 2. I got Moderna and had nothing after second dose - no fever, nausea, sweats. A couple of leg chills at best.

 

Grab a pedialyte beforehand and you'll be good to go.

Got mine at 2:30 yesterday, felt nothing until about 7, started feeling very tired.  Fell asleep 2 hours later but woke up 4:30 warm and achy.  Still feel the same.

 

Im a pretty big baby though as I rarely get sick and loathe it.  It’s not the worst thing in the world but I’m not enjoying it.

 

My wifes arm is sore, that’s it right now.

it was miserable last night....right around 1am, I started getting chills and feverish. I couldn't sleep at all. At 7am, I finally was able to get some sleep. I feel like it's about 15 hours of **** you go through where you feel like you got hit by a bus. I feel much much better now and it's been 24 hour since my shot
