Wendy - hope you feel better soon.

Sherry - fingers crossed that you won't get worse. I know it's still early, though. If you do, the nice thing is that you know it's temporary and that you're not actually sick. Either way, rest and recover tomorrow and update when you can.

It's so nice to be done and have this behind us!

I had my second Pfizer this morning. I am tired with a slight headache and sore arm. I went for a walk right when I got home because I knew I would not be up for it later. I am worried about tomorrow because after the first shot I felt fine until about 28 hours afterwards.
Thanks, Sherry! I'm just resting giving my body a chance to boost my immune system. I hope you feel okay tomorrow!

Thanks, Erica! Yes, I might not feel great now, but I'm so happy to be done with the shots! My husband goes next week for his second shot and his seeing my reaction to it has him a bit worried.

I'm 3 weeks past my second vaccine, and the feeling of freedom is heady! I've been doing all my own grocery shopping, and all kinds of errands I've been putting off for a year. Bye bye Instacart, don't let the door hit you on the way out!

I even went to Universal Studios because my sister flew down to go, and had also been vaccinated! I was concerned she wouldn't since she's in that bubble of anti-science people. It was a bit unnerving since obviously the kids aren't vaccinated, but wow! I am enjoying life.

Iím going to allow myself a little more freedom, but I still plan on being cautious. My sisterís sister-in-law who is a nurse and fully vaccinated, came down with the virus along with 3 of her co-workers, who were also fully vaccinated.

That is scary! I am still going to be very careful. I will see people I have not seen in over a year, but I am still keeping my distance. I do not go many places, and I am keeping it that way. I am going to get my hair cut for the first time since fall of 2019, though.

From what I understand, the vaccine ensures that if you do contract the virus you will only experience mild to moderate symptoms. I think it also greatly lowers your chances of being infected at all, but it will prevent severe symptoms if you are in the small set of vaccinated people who do contract the virus. I am not certain of this, this is just my understanding from the news, etc.

That is my understanding also. In addition, I would think nurses are in a group that is exposed more than the average person.

I heard the Chief of Staff at one of our hospitals interviewed last week and he was commenting on people who have been vaccinated but still contracted CoVid 19. He said that in all the local cases where that has happened, the people had serious comorbidities that resulted in suppressed immune systems so they probably didn't generate the antibodies from the vaccine like they should have. For what it's worth...
