I've been trying to book an appointment for my partner this past week but the system is kind of hilarious if you need to be local. We don't drive so would like a local appointment instead of going on public transport, especially as the distances they want us to travel would end up quite pricey. Just found one for a local pharmacy but no slots there for the second dose so it suggested an alternative that's only 31 miles away, which yeah sure it probably is only 31 miles if you measure in a direct line across the sea. XD
Seems a bit strange to me seeing that you have to book both appointments at the same time that you don't just automatically get a matching appointment 12 weeks later.
They must have opened up some new slots because I finally managed to get us both booked in to the same place for both appointments. Only down the road as well so we can walk it. Bit nervous about possible side effects because I need to do something the day after and want to be firing on all cylinders but we'll have to see. Most people seem to barely notice any side effects so fingers crossed. Better that than getting Covid19 though.
Europe is being terrible at this for once. I'm always surprised how many Americans are already vaccinated, well done USA
I'm surprised about that too! I also can't believe how easy they made it, and free on top of that. What is sad now is that there is plenty of availability here in the US, but so many people hesitating or backing off (like not getting their second shot), or flat out refusing to vaccinate. I don't get it. How else are we going to end this pandemic? It's not like it's going to wane off by itself, quite the contrary.

That's really great, Catbaloo! Happy for you!

For the first dose, I didn't have any side effects. Besides the slightly sore arm, maybe a tiny bit of body aches, but it was gone within hours. You'll probably be fine the next day for your first shot!
I got my second shot 3 days ago. About 12 hours after the vaccine, I started having light body aches. As I laid in bed that first night, I had the chills -- my body was shaking like I was very cold, even though I wasn't that cold. That was weird, but only lasted a couple hours. Next day, my body was aching a little worse than the first day and I had a light headache, but then I was fine the third day (today). No more aches or anything. It was about the same for my partner as far as body aches, but he didn't have the chills or headache like I did.
Anyway, like you said, much better than getting and spreading Covid!!

Ratqueen: ^ A video called "The Rise and Fall of Petz" was posted on YouTube in the last week of April. It brought a lot of new members to the forum, every day for weeks after its release, and probably more guests too. Still getting more than usual now.
