I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. My health care provider contacted me during January informing us that we will be notified when appointments would be available, starting February 1. The underlying message was "Don't call us, we'll call you." On the morning of February 1, I received an e-mail instructing me to go to their website, as appointments were now being offered. Within a few minutes I had the location and the date, and on Friday, Feb 5 I got the 1st dose. After I received the shot, they set up the appointment for the 2nd shot, and I got it on Feb. 26. Side effects? Nothing after the 1st, minor queasiness for about 24 hours after the 2nd. Btw, it was the Pfizer vaccine. 

My city was also offering appointments starting in late January, but I'm glad I didn't have to go that route.

Everybody’s reactions will be different but I wouldn’t overthink it either. At any rate, after a few days you will probably feel better. 

Last night, my temperature zipped up to 100, and I couldn't get to sleep, so I read Charles Williams till 7:30am , usually a good author to induce sleep, due to long involved sentences, and obscure religious /occult references.

I woke up today feeling a bit out of it, but my temperature went back down to 98.4, though it usually rises at night. Sperm count remains the same, and am filling out the applications for the sex slavery ring in my area. I hope those women don't abuse my fertility...:g

Update: Temperature went down to 98.7, and was able to fall asleep normally. Very little arm pain.

My wife and I are fine waiting until supplies are plentiful in 6 or 10 weeks (hopefully) but I am concerned now about getting my Mom situated as I just read that Florida says 50% of seniors are vaccinated, but they are also opening up for police/firemen/teachers.  It's not like they are going to keep going on the elderly until exhausted. So the same high demand is going to be pouring into sign-up sites just from different segments of the population and it will probably be just as hard to get her scheduled as before her fall/hospitalization/rehab visit. She may end up getting vaccinated about the same time we do - when most of the people who want it have gotten it and you're down to the hardcore of anti-vaccers.

My wife works in the public school system as a Social Worker.  She got her first shot yesterday. (Pfizer.)

I don't expect that I'll be getting one for at least a month, since I'm in my 50s and in good health.

I suspect that the J & J vaccination may become the dominant vaccine for the simple reasons only one shot is required and it can be stored in normal freezers.

Down for double as of Monday. Arm was rather sore the next day, but now all's well, aside from the third hand growing out my neck.

Right side or left?

Or back? THAT could have some utility as far as reaching that spot on the back that is always just out of reach otherwise.

AstraZeneca shot no. 1 today has gone fine, with nil effects so far. The vaccination centre was extremely well organised.

Just saw this thread.  As a health care worker  I was able to get my first dose of Pfizer back in December.  Got the second dose in the second week of January.  In the health system for which I work, 29% of the workers have refused the vaccine.

I had next to no symptoms.  Some soreness of my arm for a few hours that was less than the soreness I experience from the flu shot.  After the second dose - I experienced some fatigue 2-3 days out.  No issues of any type in the nearly two months since dose two.

Second Pfizer dose this morning.  We understand that Michigan Meijer stores are vaccinating those over 50 years old, so hopefully my wife can get an appointment there soon.  Berrian County says just prove home ownership in Michigan by providing utility or tax receipts.

Got Pfizer #2 yesterday afternoon, not quite 24 hours ago. No side effects yet, fingers crossed there won't be any. My son and his wife both had their side effects about 24 hours post-shot. They said they felt like shit for "the day" and then it was gone.

Had Pfizer #1 a week ago at Fenway Park.  It was well organized there.  Unfortunately, it took 7.5 hours about a week and half before that to find a slot on line!

Had a sore arm, some headaches, and fatigue.

My wife had similar symptoms yesterday, she got the first  moderna shot on Friday. We’ll see how she feels today.

Had a bit of a chill and headache yesterday. Nothing serious, though, and ibuprofen helped.  Today is starting off just fine.

Got the first shot (Moderna) on 2/8, had only the mildest sore arm for the rest of that day and maybe some of the next. Getting dose 2 on Tuesday. A bit nervous because of the worst-case scenarios I've heard of, but administered a dose of bravery by the not-terrible stories contained on this thread. I'm very grateful for them.
