    appointments booked! For those in the eastside Seattle area, keep checking the Snoqualmie Tribe's Lake Sammamish site, they are constantly adding appointments in small batches. They book both (Moderna) doses up front.

    I noticed the same thing when I got my second shot last weekend. Zero wait in line, when it was 2 hrs wait for the first shot.

    Yeah I suspect people are spooked by the J&J blood clots, even though it is 6 people out of 7 million doses administered.

    Most people are math illiterate.

    “Management of post-vaccination symptoms

    Antipyretic or analgesic medications (e.g., acetaminophen, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can be taken for the treatment of post-vaccination local or systemic symptoms, if medically appropriate. However, routine prophylactic administration of these medications for the purpose of preventing post-vaccination symptoms is not currently recommended, because information on the impact of such use on mRNA COVID-19 vaccine-induced antibody responses is not available at this time.”

    I had the same reaction to my first Pfizer injection (and mentioned it here back in late February). Lymph node inflammation. NBD. It started 4 or so days after my first jab and lasted for about 3 days. Doing pushups and wearing tight-fitting baselayers were both moderately uncomfortable. 10/10, would do it again.

    Man you guys with your vaccine surplus... so jealous. Canada is doing okay, but pale in comparison to the powerhouse USA.

    Wife has appt. scheduled, my dad is done, her parents are done, my friends are either done or scheduled, but no vaccine love for the Paulster. I just want to trade the slight sting of betrayal for the sting of a needle. Meanwhile, I wait up here while the world burns around me...

    Considering the fact that I (and likely several other forum members here) happen to know one of the post-vac stroke victims, I have a strong suspicion the numbers are WAY higher than just 6. Otherwise the CDC probably wouldn't be freaking out and putting J&J on hold if it really were just 6. I doubt we're getting the whole picture on this one.

    Sure. Go get yourself the readily available Moderna/Pfizer versions, but I couldn't blame anyone for wanting to hold off a second on the demonstrably worse J&J/AZ versions.

    Cambridge-based Moderna is working on a third booster shot of its COVID-19 vaccine.

    - A third shot in the arm. Cambridge-based Moderna says it will be making a booster shot for it's two dose vaccine regimen. A third shot is not currently required. But health experts say it could offer additional immunity against coronavirus variants, which are currently spreading in parts of the US.

    I've said this before, but, I think that, if they want to get more people lining up for a poke, stop showing massive needles going into arms when broadcasting about vaccines. It makes me and probably millions cringe. A ton of people are needle phobic, and they don't have to be, because one barely feels modern vaccine shots these days. I had to ask my local flu shot guy and both Covid pokers, uh, that's it? Barely felt them.

    Doesn't sound like PowderHorse would be taking it "routinely." The woman is in serious discomfort/pain. I'm not advocating taking the whole bottle - just one pill.

    Oddly, I started getting a headache about a week after my first shot and I have had it for about a week now on and off. Woke up to a pretty strong one. Sitting here it has subsided a bit. Neck is stiff. Anyone else felt that way as I rarely get a headache.

    Thoughts and prayers for Ted Nugent, professional covidiot hit hard by the fake pandemic.

    Nugent, a staunch supporter of ex-President Donald Trump, previously called the pandemic a scam and has railed against public health restrictions.

    “I have had flu symptoms for the last 10 days. I thought I was dying. I mean, just a clusterfuck,” Nugent said in the video. “I got the Chinese shit.”

    Nugent said he had a “stuffed-up head” and “body aches.”

    “My God, what a pain in the ass. I literally can hardly crawl out of bed the last few days. But I did, I crawled,” he said.

    fda has shut down manufacturing of the J and J at the Emergent plant pending resolution of deficiencies. No doses from the plant have yet been given. J and J has downgraded its estimate for number of doses available by the end of April--currently they are coming from the Netherlands.

    Yeah but you don't have boobs. Trust me it's a bit more impactful in that area. I missed when you posted about it and had only heard about it occuring in women but I guess it's a normal immune response.

    I loaded up on 800 mg ibuprofen yesterday but I've consumed way too much of that over the years so trying to alternate with acetaminophen. Thanks KQ and others for feedback.

    No regrets whatsoever but I am nervous about shot #2 in 2 weeks.

    My acupuncturist recommended I take Milk Thistle for 2 days pre and post shot, everyone's reactions have been so different it's hard to gauge the efficacy but I trust him so I did it. Sore arm, some body aches, all over in 24ish hours

    It has gone without saying that no one is buying this. For two reasons, the obvious one and the fact that you said the person you know died the day after of a non-specific type of stroke. Which is not what's put the J&J on pause, and all 6 of the reactions under investigation happened between day 6 and 13. So not your friend. Not that that diminishes the loss, of course, and best wishes to her friends and family, that sucks. But it's likely unrelated to the vaccine.

    See "post hoc, ergo propter hoc" here:
