RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Well, I'm almost 24 hrs post-second-Moderna-shot. So far, I've got an elevated temp of 99 degrees; and some achiness, but that could also be my arthritis speaking up since I didn't take my usual Aleve last night, not wanting to interfere with the vaccine working its magic. I'm just letting my body dictate what we do: so far, napping has been a priority...LOL! Ed has noticed nothing - part of me wonders if his normal gerbil-like intake of water has slowed any reactions; or if he's just going to be one of the lucky ones who has no reaction. I'm so grateful for the speed and efficacy of these vaccines!! Deb I wouldn't say lucky, but I read medical experts saying, those are evidences of your body immune system getting a drill or training to be ready against the virus. And getting the kicked-by-a-mule full flu like episode on the 2nd dose is the body equivalent of a full invasion war game.:E

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

Seems to be not too long wait anymore with government announcing May target for vaccine availability for everyone. Just not sure if we can still hold off the itch. It's just good that we are still busy with honey do's and improvements on the new home.:B

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

It took a few weeks to get the first appointment, but we finally succeeded. THEN, yesterday my wife and I received our first Moderna shot, PLUS an appointment for our second shot. I didn't feel a thing, and still NOT feeling not even any soreness. OTOH my wife is feeling some mild soreness in the area of the shot. We're exuberant. Lucky you squeak by. Texas has been reported to have the slowest vaccination rates in the country. And just in time to the governor lifting the mask mandate. Popovich Slams Texas Governor Lifting Mask Mandate

RE: Texas winterizing...

The full horror of what happened in Texas is starting to come out. The most tragic are those kids and seniors freezing to death. And the impact of a deregulated utilities (they are meant to provide public service, duh!). Hopefully the people of Texas and their leadership have learned their lessons this time -- well, it's called crazy when they kept on repeating the same mistakes and insisting on it when it proven it failed several times in the past. Just advised a techie son to refuse the offer of a job and relocation in Austin after what happened.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Regarding the mood at vaccination clinics - I overhead the pharmacist at the Publix where we got our shots (had #2 today) say that he had never seen so many grateful, happy people in all the years he's been working :-) Count Ed and I as those folks :-) True dat! I have to stop DW when I told her she is embarrassing the pharmacist, lol. Well, we are truly grateful as we are not in the priority list yet and we just took our chances -- and the fact that we need not have that follow up call. They call us to come in and got the express lane of 30 minutes and out -- faster if not the post-vaccination observations for adverse reactions.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

My daughter in-law, in her late 30s is getting her first vaccination this Saturday.. A niece-in-law also at about the same age got hers last week. Both are teachers and this must be in preparation for school opening. Or, the government is beginning to go down to next priority tier as it exceed their vaccine supplies and vaccination goals. Are we just a healthy bunch around here or just plain lucky? We have good batting average so far, and hope it stays that way, of mild side effects whether on the 1st or 2nd dose.

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

This did not disappoint and thank you all for the wisdom, added knowledge and common sensical advices. I seem over worried and cautious, but what I failed to mention I am someone who is genetically, as my other siblings, to virus contagion. And the effects on us is a lot worst. Common flu would send us into convulsions and deliriums. Hence these absolute precautions. My brother had Covid and he said, as @ScottG, the worst thing he ever had, the feeling of drowning while catching his breath and a sickness that nearly caused his life -- and the damage still manifest 2 months into his recovery. The other side of the story is that he got it from his in-laws, who because of their political affiliations, are defiant, reckless and disrespectful of Covid health protocols. And that inspite of seeing their own family members, two of them, died of Covid. And yes, I've been to places where I thought the state had issued a mandate, and yet, the cities and districts choose to ignore them -- which I later confirmed through back-checking to have highest incidence of Covid cases and deaths. I hope, nay pray, that everyone take the precautions and stay safe -- hopefully, with the accelerated vacations, we'll get the national mass or herd immunity. We are monitoring the situation and as you all have suspected, itching to go farther and longer.

Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

We never really stopped but limited to trips to nearby campsites. Previously, we make multi-state camping trips. This time with Covid and having those low-compliance (actually, defiant) states on health protocols, planning looks very challenging -- almost impossible not to stop on those states from West to East trip. We've already completed the West from Mexico border into Canada (Victoria BC and Vancouver). Or maybe re-do the West Coast until Covid is actually under control and vaccination reached mass immunity (70 to 80%), seen to be about fall. Any ideas from better minds around here?

Cybetruck-Official Tesla Forum, interesting...

It's a free-for-all -- must have been lightly moderated forum. You can even slam Elon Musk to your heart's content. Politics galore in whatever shades, including crazy QAnon conspiracy theories -- well, except racist remarks. And yes, deep and very knowledgeable techies... and witty remarks. Downside, they don't answer product or corporate queries. Sad, Elon sometimes answer 'em in his Twitter page.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

It might be too early for celebration, but it seems we have a good batting average for mild side effects around here even for the 2nd dose.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Other than a slightly sore arm for a day, my spouse and I have had no reactions. 1st or 2nd dose?

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Wife and I both got our 1st Moderna shot today. As of this thread neither of us can tell it. Now with that being said we may have sore arms tomorrow but this shot did not bother me like my pneumonia booster shot did on the 20th of January. My arm felt like it was going to drop off!!! But I had rather have some discomfort today than hooked up to a ventilator later on. Yup, got 3 brother in-laws that died. One was a pilot who flew to Vietnam in the first onset of Covid before even getting the notice from the airlines of the needed protocol and alerts. A younger brother also got it and hospitalized and still recovering after a month. Another is a bible study friend who still have lingering symptoms who nearly died. Oh yeah, any side effects reported so far is better than any of the above. Hopefully, we're 80% protected by tomorrow, or 14 days after our first dose of Moderna vaccine.

Costco giving $16 minimum wage ahead of stimulus bill.

Moving ahead of minimum wage on stimulus bill - Costco giving $16 minimum wage Walmart and Amazon did it ahead with their $15 minimum wages. If Only Costco will also allow overnight parking for RVers. Costco always gives the lowest gas prices and would love if they would also allow overnight parking.
