That's good to hear. For me it was about 24 hours after my first shot that I started feeling crappy so hope it all continues to go well for you. This also corresponds with what my friend who works in clinical research says about the immune response and need for the second shot for those already infected.26 hours after the second Pfizer shot I feel pretty good. Very minor issues. Very little injection site arm pain. All that's a HUGE change from 24 hours after the first shot, and confirms to me we had undiagnosed covid early last year. My wife is still waiting on an appointment for her first shot.
Got a call from pharmacy today. They had a cancellation and wondered if I was available. Said I would be to town in 1/2 hr. Moderna shot. Was chatting with him and said wife was signed up there also. He asked if she would be available as they had another cancel so I call to see if she had time before her work appt. Got hers done today also.
This shot is a walk in the park compared to the shingles shot. My physician had told me that the shingles shot hurt like crazy when he got it. I thought, you whimp. After about 12 hrs, I was calling myself a whimp. Hurt like hell. Oh well, that's done about a year ago.Unlike when I got the Shingrix shots I made a point to work my arm a bit on the drive home after the Covid vax. It was still a little sore but
nothing like the Shingrix jabs. I couldn't raise my arm for 18-20 hrs after those.
One interesting response to both the first and second shots was increased hunger for stuff I normally don't eat, like sweets. A pan of brownies is cooling as I type, and I'm concocting a thick chocolate-ganash type frosting to mimic something we had recently. I did feel a body temp spike followed eating for a few days after the first shot. Same so far for the second. If I start craving brains and non-animal body parts...I'll know the zombie apocalypse has begun.
Not eligible for VA healthcare can be "makes to much money" unless service related disability or retired from service it's income relatedNew development in the VA world. New law passed today. Veterans and their spouse of any age can recieve the vaccine at their local VA. They also opened it up to veterans not eligible for VA healthcare. I assume those are veterans that recieved discharges that were other than honorable
That's not true. Every honorably discharged veteran is eligible for VA healthcare. Although if less than 70% disabled they may be required to pay a copay based on a sliding scale. Everything above 70% is covered in full. No matter what a small copay is the most you'll pay even if you are a bazillionaire. VA healthcare isn't charity it's a benefit. For everyone who served honorably regardless of their meansNot eligible for VA healthcare can be "makes to much money" unless service related disability or retired from service it's income related
