Got on my health care providers waiting list today. I could spend a few hours looking at the various mass vaccination sites or pharmacies, but I think I'm good.

It is now about 18 hours since my first Pfizer injection.

No notable symptoms apart from a mild ache at the injection site, where there is neither swelling nor redness, nor indeed any visible evidence that skin penetration has recently taken place.

I did my morning workout without problems of any kind.

I received my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday. It was a drive through hub that was very quick and efficient, the longest wait I had was the 30 minutes they held me after for observation (I've had issues with some medications in the past so my hold time was longer). The entire ordeal took about 35 minutes.

My only side effect has been some serious soreness at the injection site. Even though I had it done on the side I don't normally sleep on it still managed to wake me up a few times during the night. I was honestly expecting to feel worse as I've heard those that already had COVID often experience more side effects due to your body already recognizing the virus strain and being ready to fight back.

Religious huckster who preached "Jesus was the true vaccine" went ahead and got the shot.

Well, two days after the injection and there is now no discomfort at all in the arm. I feel completely normal. I look forward to my follow-up dose in a few weeks.

I’m sitting in observation after my dose of Moderna. The whole drive-through suite feels like a party! Everyone from the nurses to the parking lot folks is in a happy, festive mood. As I rounded the last corner to the tents, I teared up with a rush of excitement, happiness and relief. I know it’s not over, but experiencing a scientific wonder like this is a rare thing for me.

Somewhere in my online life I read something about a fringe group saying the vaccines are the Mark of the Beast. Um...maybe they should break out their Bibles again, huh?

I got the vaccine as well. Just like having COVID, I haven't felt a single symptom.
