its a great day and is getting better as we go on. We were able to get on a covid 19 vaccine list and expect to get the first one next week. That means that after the second one we can get out of the house a little more while practicing safety measures. Just in time for the mutation. Our area is right at the 10% positive rate.

Wish everyone who wants the shots can get them sooner rather than later.

Things are getting better every day. There have been a few minor hiccups but we are closing in on 1 million doses per day average.

Given that the vaccinations are primarily focused on the 65+ crowd and the average death/hospitalization is in the 80's, we can expect a drastic drop in the cases with major implications within the next 2-3 months.

By mid-year, I expect a lot of the restrictions to start dropping away with international travel opening by fall on a country by country basis as other nations catch up to us.

Given a typical vaccine takes 10yrs to start distribution and 2-3yrs was the optimistic estimate early on...10 months in with more than 15 million jabs completed, is GREAT NEWS!!!!

We are going to let this thread run for a while and see how it goes. It may be a good place for 'general' comments (non-scientific in a way) related to the process of individuals receiving their vaccinations, reactions to them, etc. We all understand there are 'issues' to be resolved in the distribution. On a personal note, my spouse and I have had our first round and next week will receive our second. The sooner we can all get vaccinated the sooner the better.

Never thought I'd be happy to be diabetic but that plus the bout of heart failure I had and being prone to asthma from viruses put me in the next phase of shots (1B as it's called here) despite only being 60. Because my husband also gets asthma and has a heart condition he also got bumped up on the list. Phase 1B starts next week but they are starting with 65-74 year olds first. Aged 75+ have already been inoculated as well as first responders, LTC facilities and a few more. NH is back to 100% capacity but with social distance rules in place. Once both hubby and I get shots we are going out to dinner!!!

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Here on the westbank outside of New Orleans we received an email from the hospital where we get most of our medical care when in town. Said we were eligible and a phone number to call. Was surprised they picked right up when I called, and we are both going to receive our shots together, first one next week, second one 21 days later.

We will see how smooth the process goes.

I wish Michigan would get going! I am almost 84 with numerous heart and other issues and have not even had a notice to make an appointment yet. Maybe I'll just drive down and give Moderator a visit. [emoticon]

Come on down Barney. Unfortunately our state as a whole, has not been as organized as it should be. Fortunately, Putnam County Health Services has done an Excellent job in organizing; surrounding counties are still having significant problems getting their act together. Here is hoping you get yours soon!!!

Just got an appointment 1/2hr ago for Sunday morning. We are from Michigan but down in South Texas for the winter.

At this point, they have more people wanting the vaccine than available doses, so you have to go online and find a sign up place online while they have openings. I had been popping onto the local hospitals site every hour or two while doing other things and it kept saying they didn't have any available appointments...then suddenly it sent me to the sign up page. Got appointments for both of us but 5min later I checked and it was back to not having any appointments available.

I expect in 2-3 weeks, they will have plowed thru much of the 65+ crowd and it will get easier to get an appointment (plus there are 2 more vaccines expected to be approved by then increasing supply) but if you want it quicker, you have to take the initiative. I'm betting Michigan is similar.

PS: Someone mentioned going out to dinner after they get the vaccine. I assume they meant to say in 2-3 weeks after getting it. For all practical purposes, the day you get the vaccine, it hasn't provided any level of immunity.
