      I got my first shot last Friday and I am glad I did, I think it's the first step to life getting back to normal.
      My arm was sore until Sunday night and my body felt wooped until then also. But I'm doing good now.

        Well, I folded and got mine today. J&J one and done. There is a concert in a month that wife would like to go to so I capitulated. She got her $50 gift card today a week after her 2nd shot. F yeah, I felt it......Not sure if the J&J takes the same needle or cc as the other double dose shots but to say its painless is uh....wrong. Upper arms a little 'foggy' now. Don't expect much discomfort. Any one tell me differently? Doesn't matter now as I already got it. Stay safe........Im one of them now.

            As far as the slight discomfort goes, while you are doing nothing gently rub the injection sight & rotate your shoulder windmill style. The ache will disappear in less than 24 hours.

                    After I got my 2nd shot, my arm was slightly sore at the injection site too. Once that little baby arm grew out of my head, behind my right ear.....I was able to rub my sore arm easier....and the soreness went right away!

                    :rofl:

                        Was not going to get vaccinated. My wife did, she has an Actemra infusion monthly, like almost all biological meds the Actemra runs her immune system down. When I started talking about going to Woodburn Dragstrip to shoot the Division 6 Summit ET Finals she suggested/asked I reconsider. I just got my second shot on Wednesday. So far other then the third arm growing out of my forehead all is well....

                          I have a buddy that is a cop in AZ. He has come in contact with all sorts of nasty crap. He was scheduled to get the first shot, started feeling a bit off. Got tested...he had Covid. He told me the worst part was the exhaustion he suffered for the first several days. 14 days after testing positive he got retested. Got the ok to go back to work. Was told on the 90th day from his all clear test he would get the shot. Day 80...Covid again. This time he just got a headache and a mild cough. Got the all clear to return to work, the 90 day counter started again. Day 88 he started feeling off...Covid again. Last we spoke he only made it 35 days before testing positive again. He was the instructor of a firearm recertification day at a weapons range. 3 of the officers that were there that day were not feeling well...my buddy and all 3 tested positive. He did say that each time he pops positive the symptoms are less noticeable. This last time he had a mild headache...but just walking from his bed to the sofa whooped his ass...

                          Yeah, this Wuhan virus affects different people in different ways. My 62 year old sister-in-law is a RN. She was masked and working in a cubicle at the hospital when she became infected. It took her a month to get over the major symptoms but it took her 5 months to get over the fatigue.
                          I recently met and talked with a guy who got his first shot because he is 52 with asthma. He has had a non-stop headache since the shot. He doesn’t know if he should take the second. The doctor has no advice on whether the second shot will clear his headache, make it worse, or have no affect. He is struggling with the decision.
                          I have three friends (65 years old) who have taken the shots and have had no adverse reaction or side affects.

                                  This virus has proven it can adapt and may become something more dangerous than it is.
                                  Vaccinations should stop it?
