    I saw this article about Putin and how he doesn't want to talk about his vaccination.
    It made me think that it would be terrifying to work for him, thinking every day "is this the day I commit suicide by jumping out a window with two bullet holes in the back of my head?" I mean, how else other than a leak is something like this in the news? This man lives on making people think he's top dog and he does this in hiding, that's weird.

    On Monday, FL is lowering the eligibility to 40+, and the following Monday it's 18+.
    So I have a week to get my vaccination before having contend with the rest of the adult population. No pressure.

    I'm pre-registered with two counties, but I haven't been assigned a case number. Fingers crossed.

    Are there any Twitter-based bot resources for your area in Florida? I set up notifications on my phone and bookmarked the registration link on a desktop...I was able to get appointments for family / friends who aren't able to sit in front of a computer all day for work like I do. I can share some tips that were helpful for me but ultimately YMMV depending on the system near you.

    I only have findashot.org bookmarked.

    I'm pre-registered with Sarasota Co, and they've been pretty efficient.
    I registered on 3/15 when it opened up for 18+ pre-registration, and a news article said only 17K signed up in the first day. In theory, that means I should be high up in the queue....but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    I just can't frickin' wait....give it to me!

    I'm scheduled for my 1st shot this coming Monday at 10am!! I'm in shock. The county I live in does a random pool selection for eligible people. I almost feel like crying.

    Glad you are finally getting taken care of. In Washington the governor is saying that there will be no restrictions on who gets the vaccine on May 1. I'm glad I'm getting taken care of before the rush.

    Got my moderna shot yesterday morning. Last night my lower lip started to swell up. I've never had fillers, so not sure what's going on there. This morning it looks like I had a lower lip filler - you wouldn't know my lip was swollen just by looking at me, it's that minor.

    I can't get info as to whether or not this is considered an "allergic" reaction because it was 11 hours after my shot. Got a call in with the Dr to see if I'm at risk for anaphylaxis for the 2nd shot in four weeks. It's kinda sad, but I'm willing to take that risk if need be.

    The second dose of Moderna knocked me on my ass. A night's worth of 100.3 temp and fever dreams, pounding headache, general aches. No chills or sweats, thankfully. Got better as today went on but I'm still really tired. Highly recommend planning an off day following dose #2, if at all possible.

    Honestly, I know it’s going to be worth it but I’ve had a rough last few days—insomnia, my throat swelled up over the weekend then righted itself on Monday, extreme fatigue which is fun when you can’t sleep, joints are achier than usual, headaches, upset stomach, runny nose, chills and some congestion. No fever though.

    I know this was dumb now but I got real concerned on Sunday that I went and got a COVID test which of course was negative, thankfully.

    This was just after the first shot. I felt okay until last Thursday night (I got the first dose last Tuesday morning).

    I am having some serious anxiety about that second dose now but of course I’m still going to do it. Just a lot more worried now.

    Wow. When is your 2nd shot?
    Suddenly my swollen lower lip isn't that big of a deal.

    I would definitely tell them when you get your 2nd dose that you need to be monitored for longer than 15 min.

    The nurse specifically asked if I experienced throat swelling / difficulty breathing when I sat down for the second shot. Also asked about rash or hives. Definitely ask your doctor about it before going for the second but also mention it to the nurse if they don't ask. The lines of questioning seemed like part of the standard questionnaire but I suppose that may vary from state to state.

    Edit: Following up on my second shot...feeling pretty much normal a day and a halfish after second shot.

    Got my first shot a few hours ago, before work. I work for a major hardware store, and as we sell disaster relief, building supplies, and food, we are an essential business. No pre existing conditions and I'm 37. I have an allergy to penicillin, but I'm not growing a third arm or picking up 5g waves with my brain yet.

    Thankful this nightmare is almost over, although I'm going to keep wearing a mask in public as I haven't even gotten so much as a cold the last year.

    edit: a third arm wouldn't be so bad, come to think of it....

    so I'm 3 weeks and a couple days since my first shot..does anyone else notice the injection spot is taking a while to heal? not in terms of pain, but it looks like a scrap or something trying to heal, at least for me. not exactly scabbing, but some really minor scabbing.

    anyway, I'm not trying to worry about it, but it is concerning to a small degree. my 2nd shot is a week from today and I hope it's fully healed by then.

    finally announced that all adults in NJ are eligible 2 weeks from today. so excited that my girlfriend can finally get her shot. our 5 year anniversary is the day after I get my 2nd, and we are planning to do something like indoor skydiving for our anniversary, but both want to be fully vaccinated.

    we're really looking forward to going to a Broadway play hopefully at the end of summer!

    Covid arm is a thing, from what I hear. I could be a good immune response. Maybe ask your doctor about it?

    I just want to be able to eat in a restaurant and get my hair cut, it's been well over a year at this point.

    Yeah, I'm at the awkward point where I'm looking for a new doctor. My main doctor I used to go to retired, the other doctor I'd see moved! Going to keep monitoring this. Maybe I'll use my other arm next time, especially if this one isn't fully healed by then...
